Re: Gen with Akihiko
You'd be wrong about that earth technique. There was actually discussion posted by Zanji, the sensei, about this, in the Sensei HQ.
I'll post you it here.
(Doton: Chōkeijūgan no Jutsu) - Earth Release: Earth Release: Super Light-Weight Rock Technique
Chakra cost: 40
Damage poitns: N/A
Description: A more advanced version of the Earth Release: Light-Weight Rock Technique, in which the user drastically decreases the weight of any object in direct physical contact,but to a much greater extent than that of the original ability. The user if using this technique on a incoming object would still be affected by the momentum of the force but will not gain full damage due to drastically decreasing the weight.
Note: The Initial effects last for 1 turn before the weight of the mass is returned to normal.
This technique I am calling into question because I absolutely despise how it has been used lately. Apparently this technique is being used to break out of Genjutsu's by making your body lighter thus flushing your body out of the foreign chakra. The ****?! Never in my years of RPing has effecting your mass, effected your chakra. Now tell me in full explanation how exactly this can be used to break you out of a genjutsu. Prime example of it being used in such a way was in Minato and Igneel's fight in the Ninja World.
Well, there are three major ways to break out of Genjutsu, not to mention the minor aspects of the manga.
First, would naturally be intense pain, since pain naturally overcomes everything else in the body. This would allow someone to hereby "snap to their senses".
Second, would be to have some kind of Doujutsu, such as Sharingan, that can break out of such things.
Thirdly, would be disrupting the flow of your chakra, which I am assuming is the point you're bringing up here. Usually, this is done by only Jinchuurikis, a teammate, or a Shadow Clone.
I personally don't see how this is jutsu is supposed to break you out of a Genjutsu. You would have disrupt your chakra flow, thus, hindering your five senses for a slight moment. This, on the other hand, is a S-Rank Earth jutsu, which I am sure the user focuses on their OWN CHAKRA, turning it into an earthly quality so that the item would become lighter.
I believe this jutsu holds the same technique as other jutsus that can turn your body into different aspects of earth, and in no way, should this be able to disrupt chakra flow. You are correct in saying that the changed mass does not affect the chakra flow in any manner. I don't know why anyone would use it to break out of a Genjutsu, much less be able to move during the affected term.
The jutsu usually affects items, as show in the manga, and it needs direct contact for it to happen.
So, yeah, if you wish to read that about the jutsu, I can assure you it does not work, but Nagashi does.
These are the official ways to disrupt and dispel/release from genjutsu.
The full body, full system chakra surges was never an issue or even valid until the point where it was deemed that Nagashi could be used to dispel genjutsu. The reasoning was that you'd overpower the enemy's genjutsu by forcefully "bursting" enough of your own chakra all together. Then I revamped this rule to make it more resonable and actually more logical instead of saying "nagashi can because its nagashi". While in the manga it was not shown, the fact is that Genjutsu in the RP is far more powerful and I took all that into account when revamping the rules for release and I stand by what is stated there.
Never mind. That is not a full body chakra surge. You use that into something you're touching. As far as we know you can't use it on yourself but only on others.
Biting your tongue is an effective way to release you from most Genjutsus. Not too hard, just enough for you to bleed. Keep this in mind if you are completely paralyzed next time.
Jinchuurikis can also break you out of Genjutsus likewise, much like how teammates work, since there are two forces at work in the jinchuuriki.
Lastly, Shadow Clones are extremely important in teamfights. My main reasons are:
First: Clones can perform various attacks all at the same time. Indeed, imagine if you had four clones in front of you all release different jutsus at you at the exact moment. Dangerous, no?
Second: It is hard to tell the difference between the real you and clones. Only the Sharingan is able to tell such differences, or normally, people just godmode this in battle.
Third: Being able to combo greatly with split-second jutsus - imagine seeing several attacks coming at you at all directions.
Fourth: Distraction in general - for example, a clone used Thunder Up, and caused an explosion, the enemy will be drawn to the noise and you could then take advantage of this.
Fifth: Release of Genjutsu.
Sixth: Sacrifice for information.
Seventh: Increase of field of vision. Blind spots.
Eight: Human Shield.
I can emphasize on this later, but since the usage of Genjutsus requires fake clone illusions, I think it's important for you to know this if you haven't learned the actual technique.
Alright, let's actually begin. I hope you read all that.
I want you to first send your chakra into my brain and manipulate each of my five senses individually, so that I am convinced my surroundings has changed.
