So, I died. It was pathetic, really really pathetic. Death by fishcake, or rather Naruto. It's ironic considering where I was, in the middle of Akihabara, visiting the homeland of Naruto, my favorite anime. To think that I would choke on the very thing I came to admire, in a ramen stall doing a special promotion with the Naruto anime, for 50% off. Well it doesn't change anything anyway, I died and now I'm here.
Now as for where I am, I have no fucking idea. I guess you could call it a void, considering all the darkness around me. Well aside from the big glowing wheel in front of me, it was all black. Rather than void it should probably be called the afterlife, but it seems really boring compared to the heavenly paradise I was promised. The only thing to do here is to wait in line leading towards the wheel.
I estimate I'm about half way there by now. At least the pace is moving quickly, or this might as well be hell. I can't really see what's going on up front, but I've got hope. With my massive anime obsession, I often researched the Japanese folk lore and Buddhism along with other beliefs, and my best guess is that the big wheel is the wheel of samsara. In other words, the wheel of reincarnation.
Considering my shit luck up till now it makes perfect sense. I live in suffering, and then gets reborn into a better existence. At least I hope so otherwise I'm fucked, in all meanings of the word.
I guess I'll find out soon anyway, there's only about 20 people in front of me. It looks like there is a terminal and a portal right under the wheel. Do I have to register for something? It looks like some sort of interface, and the portal changes for every person, so I've come to the conclusion that I somehow get a choice.
Now you may be wondering; 'you just died how can you be so calm about it'. The truth is, I don't know, but I guess it helps that I have nothing to live for. My family already died in a plane crash years ago, leaving me all alone. Also, my favorite anime Naruto ended years ago, so I got nothing to regret on that front. In addition to that, I graduated university last year, earning my Ph. D. in physics.
Hmm? oh, I'm second in the queue now, guess I dosed of a little.
Finally, my turn, let's see. 'welcome to the wheel of samsara', I was right it seems, 'Subject have died early, and still has most of its life force in it. As such Subject has been given the right to choose one of the following worlds from subjects memory to reincarnate into'
So, I get to reincarnate, and in a different world at that. This is like every otaku's ideal situation, and I didn't even get hit by truck-kun nor meat the cliché old man. I guess I still get to reincarnate, and I still died anyway, so I better make the best of it.
On the terminal it was written I could choose a world from my memory. I'm a little confused, does that mean I get to go to an anime world or just like movies and stuff. Anime's would be cool, especially something like Naruto, that would be awesome! Now let's see my options
-Hunter x Hunter
I found it! haha I'm going to get reborn in Naruto!!! This is fucking awesome, like a dream come true! I get to use chakra and shit... Aaaaand select. I might be a bit too excited because of this, but, meh, who cares anyway? Now then, aren't you supposed to get some cheat of bloodline when you get reincarnated? That's normally how the cliché goes...
'Subject has chosen the Naruto world, due to actions I subjects last life, subject has been granted a chance at the kekkei genkai lottery. The is also a chance to gain a kekkei genkai depending on birth family. Subjects birth family is randomized, but subject has been given a choice; Choose birth village or choose birth time period'.
There it is, kekkei genkai lottery, that must mean I indeed do get a bloodline of some kind. And the deal with birthplace or birth-time... Hmm, it would suck if I was born in the bloody mist, so I better choose Konoha, at least with the timeline I know a bit about what is going on.
'Village: Konoha has been chosen, please proceed to spin the kekkei genkai lottery'
Ohh what's this? Sharingan, Byakugan, Mokuton, Bakuton, Hyoton, Shikotsumyaku, Yoton... damn that is some good options. I see that I can get kekkei genkai not native to Konoha... That might be a problem. Oh well let's see, I guess is should pray for the Sharingan, after all it is the most op dojutsu in the series when you consider that it can be evolved into the Rinnegan. Ok then, Initiate kekkei genkai lottery!
'subject has initiated kekkei genkai lottery. Subject is the 1.234.567th subject and has been granted a second spin. Spin #1 start'
Come on, come on, come on...
'Subjects spin #1 result is jiton, please initiate spin #2'
jiton huh, that's the one Gaara's father has, right? the magnet release, I can work with that, I guess. Too bad it's not the Sharingan, well I still have spin #2 to try for that. I already have some ideas for jiton, but most of them require me to make a fighting style for them, so I guess it depends on what I get in spin #2... Well then, initiate spin #2
'Subject has initiated spin #2. Spin #2 start'
'Subjects spin #2 result is Byakugan'
Uhm ok, so this is probably going to be a problem. Either I get born in the Hyuga clan and risk getting the seal, oooor, I'm going to have a hard time explaining why I have it... What in the actual fuck am I going to do now? I'm actually boned, imagine I get born in the Uchiha clan, that's would most definitely be a nightmare. At least in that scenario, I would get that some pretty cool abilities. How would it even work though? One eye Sharingan and one eye Byakugan, or maybe the fabled Byaringan. (AN: Combined form of the two)
'Subject will now be transferred to new life, please step into the portal'
Well I guess I can't do anything about it now, I will worry about that later. It's probably not even going to happen, and if it does, I should have at least 6 years to think about it before enrolling in the ninja academy, plus the time it would to take to awaken it thereafter, if it goes by the same rules as the Sharingan, that is. I also might not even get it while I'm a genin. Anyway, I should probably hurry up now, so; Here we go! To Naruto it is!
After that I stepped in to the newly formed portal, and my vision went blank as I fainted.
