Tutorials aren't easy

Would you like to take the tutorial to gain [The Gamer]? This Ability will allow you to live your life as if you are a videogame character.

[Yes/No]

P.S. You may control the Text boxes and the selections by the voice commands, hand motions or focusing your thoughts.

I, Naruto Uzumaki, woke up to the words above displayed on a text box right in front of me.

"Oh my Kami! Did my life turn into a videogame? This is awesome" was what I was thinking at the time.

After all, playing videogames were one of the few things that made me happy, next to watching animes, reading mangas, manhwas, web comics and light novels.

In particular the text box reminded me of Han Jee Han's ability [The Gamer] from a manhwa, I was reading. And I couldn't help but think that since I'm getting a tutorial which Jee-Han didn't get, that my new life of grinding would be much easier than his.

And my decision to hit yes in that box, took my life to a whole new path, one that started with me in a vast black alternate dimension with all the weapons I've seen in my videogames littered on the floor versus someone that looked like me, that claimed to be me and constantly criticized me.

5 minutes later

*drip**drip*Blood continues to drip from deep cut on my left shoulder, a shallow cut on the center of my chest and some minor slices on the rest of my chest.

"What's wrong, 'me' *pant*? Is that*drip* all you've got *pant*!? Oh wait, yeah, that's probably*pant* all that the pathetic, dense, useless, idiot me can do" screamed the other 'me' whilst wiping my, no, our blood from the replica of "Zero's Blade" from Borderlands 2 he's holding.

"*Arrgh**hah*hah*hah*" I groan in pain and also pant in fatigue from running away from him and dodging his attacks.

This 'other' me had appeared 10 meters in front of me when I was teleported to this place after choosing 'yes' to the tutorial option mentally. 'It' immediately grabbed a lance next to him and tried to stab me in the chest, a strike that I narrowly dodged by twisting my body to the side and then immediately started running backwards, trying to get some distance between us to analyses the situation.

From then on he claimed to be 'me' and mocked my life, my desire to be noticed, my love for pranking and my love for ramen. I then asked him, about why he was trying to kill me and he responded with "Why the hell not? A useless fellow like you has accomplished nothing with your life besides make everyone in Konoha hate you, have the girl you 'love' hate you and be the dead last at the Academy. In fact when I kill you, emphasis on when, I will replace you in the real world along with obtaining [The Gamer] ability, I will become a better Naruto Uzumaki than you could ever be!"

And then he continued, and after a while of the taunting, insults and attempts to kill me I realized that he was right about my life. About not achieving anything noteworthy, being an idiot, being probably a disappointment to my parents, may they rest in peace. Have I ever done anything I can be proud off? The answer to that question was honestly no, my grades were horrible, I'm an idiot, and I can't think of any one that has anything good to say about me other than Jiji.

Would I become the so called hero because I got the main character like power? While I don't think that I'm evil, everyone does call me the Demon Brat so there must be a reason.

But would I change due to getting this power? I suppose the answer is I will, but will it be for the better?

And every time I think about these questions, his insults and how he was right about me, I lose my will to fight.

But even after all this, I don't want to die. My wounds hurt a lot right now, and I'm scared of getting hurt but I'm even more afraid of dying and what happens after that.

"Finally decided to let me kill you, huh?*pant* That's more like it, but don't worry I will make it as painless as I can, so just stay right there*pant*." He said in a tone that can be described as gleeful and so he took his time walking to me, which I can guess is due to him being as tired as him.

I look in front of me and I see a pair of white, black and red swords stabbed in the ground just in the corner of my eye, specifically Krato's Blades of Chaos from God of War but they were not chained together like in the games.

But why should I give up? There's no guarantee that this other 'me' was going to be any better than me just because he acknowledges my faults, for all I know from his attitude and the fact that he immediately tried to kill me, he is probably homicidal.

I don't want to die here, I don't want to die as I am now, some idiotic attention seeking, demon brat.

When I die, I will die after I'm satisfied with my life, after I have made my parents proud.

I came to this conclusion after all the fighting (which consisted of me dodging or at least trying to dodge his attacks).

I turned and dashed for The Blades of Chaos, picking up each of the blades and holding them in each hand. I then turned to see the other 'me' shaking his head in disapproval.

"Took you long enough to decide to fight, to kill, but do you really think you have what is takes? He asked.

"I understand that there's no way out of this place besides killing each other, and it's quite obvious that this is the only way to end the tutorial. In my defense you attacked me first, but more than that, I will not die here. I will not die to you, and not like this. I… know that I wasn't the best person ever, but I will change, I will put this power to good use, and because of that, I will kill you".

"Do you really think you can kill me with an injured left shoulder and your injuries? Well whatever, it won't be my problem after this is over" he said, then he imitated a normal attack stance as he used the Wyvern Lance from Final Fantasy XIII.

I ignored the pain from my injuries, I put one foot forward using a dual wielding stance where my chest was unprotected and I hold both my swords to my sides.

I know that I will die from blood loss if this keeps up because of the cutting power of Zero's sword, so I have to kill him with this attack.

A lance's strongest move is its thrust and its advantage is its range.

But the other 'me' is still me, and for all of confidence he is still as unskilled as I am in weapons so reacting and withdrawing skillfully will not be in his ability.

We are currently 5 meters apart, I start dashing at him first, and he waits for me to get in his range, and since I am attacking using a lower aggressive stance I am leaving my head and upper body completely exposed. I'm unskilled so I have to gamble that he will be aiming for my heart or head.

At 2 meters apart his lance was about to meet my chest, but my left hand had already completed its upper-left diagonal slash which I started 3 meters away from him in anticipation for a thrust towards my chest. I deflected the thrust with just enough power for it be pushed to the right of my chest with only a small cut to my arm. Once I got pass the tip of the lance I dropped one of the blades of Chaos and grabbed Zero's Sword with my right hand and pulled him towards me through the lance.

I pushed myself forward against the defenseless doppelganger and as I took one large step I slashed him with the other Blade of Chaos. Leaving a large diagonal gash from his right shoulder to his lower left torso.

"Kuahhh…Arrggg *wheeze*", he let go of the lance of his hands as he fell to his knees.

"Well…. Looks like you get to live, I guess…" his voice started to strain.

I caught the Blade of Chaos on the ground with my left hand, then I put both swords in an X position at his neck. Intending to behead

him. "Sorry, but I… don't intend to die, nor will I live as stupidly as I have lived." My hands start shaking again.

Clearly he noticed my shaking hands and surprisingly he responded with, "Don't need to be sorry… live how you want…that's not what I wanted… I just wanted to live a full life…And to do more than I could ever dreamed about" He coughed up some blood then looked at me straight in the eyes. "Hey… I was decent enough to offer a quick death… care to return the favor?" he asked with a small smirk

My hands stopped shaking and I looked at him resolutely and said, "Sure… And thanks for setting me straight." I said to him.

"All I said was stuff you already knew…. you just needed to start thinking about it…I would know… after all… I'm you" he replied with a smile while closing his eyes.

"Yeah… you're me… and I promise you, no, myself that I will live a life I can be proud of… but thanks anyway, goodbye…" I replied and lifted my hands outwardly to gather momentum, then brought down the swords on his neck. It wasn't a clean beheading, I'm not strong enough to do something like that, so all I could do was slice through till the bone.

After that, the world dissolved. And I was back in my room, my hands empty and….

Back to present

HP and SP are fully restored.

By making smart combat decisions and making wise life decisions you wisdom has increased by 10.

I mentally dismissed the message and the screen disappeared from my sight.

I looked in the mirror and noticed that both the pain and my wounds were gone, but there was a very light and shallow scar on my arm. I take off my shirt and see that there were similar scars where I was injured before, but there was no discomfort left from the wounds and none while moving my left shoulder which had a larger wound.

Suddenly a flood of information entered my head, basic information about my ability. Stat points, inventory, skills, quests, reincarnation and other options filled my head. After the information stopped flowing into my head I found myself calmer than I had ever been. I found myself thinking back to me taking a life but whilst I felt disturbed I soon found myself thinking rationally regardless.

"Status" I said softly, despite knowing from the information in my head that I could mentally will the screen to appear.

"My Wisdom is at 11 now, which meant that my Wisdom was at 1 before I resolved myself. It seems I really was that dumb, heh" I chuckled lightly in self-depreciation for a moment before saying "Skills".

After taking a look at my skills, I check the clock and its 6 a.m. in the morning, I have to leave for the academy at 7 a.m. to make it on time.

I don't know what this [Eye of the Mind] skill comes from, but it's pretty awesome.

I then decide to get to try to obtain one of the most important skill for anyone with this ability. I then stared at my uniform and made random observations in my head when I felt an energy leaving my eyes and returning in an instant. A pop up appeared right after that.

You have gained a skill through a special action!

[Orange-Jumpsuit] – Rank: F – Durability: 12/12 – Def: 4

Description: Cheap Orange Jumpsuit. A jumpsuit that was about to be thrown to the garbage by the owner of a clothes store but Naruto was able to buy it at a cheap price, and because of Naruto's reputation for wearing it, the jumpsuit decreases your reputation gain.

Keikaku Doori (Just as Planned), as I thought, my ability is extremely similar to Han Jee Han's version of [The Gamer]. I then decided to turn on my computer and go online to reread the first few chapters of 'The Gamer' for reference. I then decided on the obvious course of action, Han Jee Han's method of training for physical stats, studying hard for INT but also pumping stats into INT as its harder to obtain that than physical stats, is a decent strategy. However Chakra seems to be separate from INT and stems mostly from ENG. I will have to increase that ASAP to grind skills. Although I also have to increase my WIS so that I can come up with better strategies to increase my other stats in a more efficient manner.

I should increase [Observe]'s level till I can get enough information to tell who's dangerous and who's not. This will also be good for understanding my abilities in relation to others. Considering it costs 1 MP and I regenerate back 5 MP per minute I have to use it at least 5 times per minute for maximum efficiency.

From the information that flowed into my head, [ID Create] and [ID Escape] can be made, but I will handle that after the academy, as paying attention in class will likely increase my abysmal INT plus I'm likely to get some much needed quest which will help me level up and increase my ENG for CP to spam.

I also need to find skill books, they will disappear if I choose to learn skills from them so I will avoid using library books and will instead note down useful books then use my own money to buy them myself, I don't plan to become a thief unless absolutely necessary. I should start by searching my room for any books that could be used.

Lastly, I should put anything useful into my inventory such as money and weapons. It's better to be on the safe side, and it will make sure none of my money will be lost by accident.

You have made a series of wise decisions and as a result your wisdom has increased by 2.

As I thought, making simple pragmatic decisions increased my WIS, I suppose I really was that dumb. In any case I better get to it.

I walked to the bathroom to shower and made sure to use observe at least 5 times every minute on random objects.

I soon came across my Infamous 1 disc and to my surprise a pop up alert appeared.

You have acquired a skill disc!

Would you like to learn [Infamousverse Powers]?

Yes/No

Choosing yes in my head the disc disappeared and knowledge that seems like it was plucked out of the Infamous wiki was absorbed by my brain.

After that my brain processes all the cutscenes and gameplay scenes scenes.

Finally the information about Conduits and Conduit Powers within the game is assimilated into my knowledge.

[Infamousverse Affinity] – Passive –

Description: An affinity that allows the user to freely use Conduit Powers and techniques from the Infamousverse.

Effects may differ from the Infamousverse based on the rules of your current world.

So it seems it only allows me to use Conduit Powers and all that but not give me any usable skills.

I suppose I should also try to see if any of my manga, anime and games can be used to create skills.

My [Observe] has already levelled up to 3 which is pretty good for half an hour I guess.

I hear my door bell ring so I walked down to the door and opened it and found Iruka. I greet him while using [Observe] on him. I found that I could see his stats and if anything it seems the average stat for an average adult seems to be 10, other than that there was nothing special about his stats and description.

"Naruto, you ok? When did you get that scratch on your arm?" Iruka asked.

Thankfully my [Gamer's Mind] kept me calm and I said.

"Oh, I accidentally scratched my arm on a screw on my bedside table, it wasn't deep or anything so I went ahead and disinfected it and put a plaster on it for the night." I lied, thankfully he thinks it's a scratch and not a scar for whatever reason.

Honestly I'm feeling guiltier than usual for lying to Iruka, I want to make him proud but as much as I would love to be honest and tell him I got thrown into an alternate dimension and then got the scars from fighting a doppelganger of myself that wielded a dragon spear, I highly doubt it will be to my immediate and long-term benefit if he had the Hokage send me to a psychiatrist.

You have gained a skill through a special action!

[Deception] – Passive – Lvl.5/100 EXP: 6%

Description: A ability to deceive others about your intentions and actions through the use of lies, half-truths and tricks.

You passively gain the following bonuses from acquiring the skill.

Increase in INT and WIS by 2.5

"So I'll see you later Iruka-sensei".

"Ok Naruto, see you in class, and don't be late"

Looks like I have to live with a bit of guilt to get stronger, but if it will help me live life to the fullest then I won't waste my time feeling guilty about it.

After eating breakfast, I put on my shoes and got ready to leave the house when suddenly…

Quest Alert! (Optional)

Title: Get to the Academy on time!

Objectives: Exactly what the title says

Completion reward: 30 EXP

Failure penalty: Decreased reputation with Iruka Umino

I accept the quest mentally and go to the street in front of my house.

I ran towards the school at top speed, intending to build up either my AGI or END. Of course, I made sure to use observe on my fellow students who I saw on the way. It would seem that the average stats for Academy Students range from 6-8, with some INT reaching 10, I suppose that's expected from the prestigious Konoha Academy.

Right now I'm in my second year of the Academy, currently at the start of my 2nd week of the Year. I need to prepare for the 4th year exams in 2 years, so raising INT and possibly getting EXP from quests would be good. I can also use the cold weather to learn [Cold Resistance] or something similar. Which reminds me, I have to buy some weights so I can train and increase my physical states quicker.

I reached the Academy within 10 minutes and Thank Kami for my high endurance and although I wasn't tired, my legs were hurting, but even though it was hard, I didn't give up because I needed to get stronger, to fight stronger Shinobi and because I want to become a strong Shinobi I cannot live my life in bliss and in peace, so I need to get stronger and prepare for what may, no, will come. In the end I arrived at school 20 minutes earlier than usual.

By sprinting and continuous running you have increased AGI and END by 1.

Excellent, excellent, just as planned. Muahahahahaha. OK time to stop laughing to myself in my head.

Quest Completed!

30 + 5 EXP received

You have levelled up twice! Gain 10 Stat Points!

I called up my Status screen to check my current stats.

Name: Naruto Uzumaki Age: 10

LVL: 3 EXP: 5/45

Title: Prankster King Affiliation: None

Race: Human

HP: 1600/1600 Regen: 110 per minute

MP: 1000 Regen: 15.5 per minute

STR: 6 (5+1)

END: 16 (15+1)

AGI: 6 (4+2)

INT: 7.5 (4+3.5)

WIS: 15.5 (11+4.5)

ENG: 8 (8+0)

LUK: 100 (100+0)

Points: 10

Ryo: 500

Well now, interestingly I have somehow quickly surpassed the average adult in Wisdom simply by deciding to make the most of my life. I'm pretty sure my ability is trying to say something about the average person, but that isn't my immediate concern right now. Raising INT, ENG and WIS are one of the most pressing concerns.

WIS is obviously important and so is INT but I will have to see if I can increase it normally at lower levels first, the most likely possibility is that at higher levels it will become more difficult to increase them naturally, therefore, saving points till the benefits from training for the points becomes significantly lower the benefits of increasing them through my level up points will be the most efficient method.

The first value of my stats are the total stats whilst the brackets reflect base stats and bonus stats from skills. If I keep levelling up [Observe] my INT should quickly rise.

I should also try to calculate the EXP algorithm, or at least find a game with a similar algorithm, I get the feeling I have seen an MMORPG with the EXP requirement at level one to be at 15 EXP. But I can't seem to recall it.

In any case I decide to fiddle with the options and to study some of the books before class starts. I turn on the [Auto-Loot] function and the [Hide Player Information] which apparently obscures what people can discern of me aside of what they already know or expect of me. I decide to put 4 points into WIS and put 4 into ENG and the rest into INT and this ability might not be fair, but I mean you get handsome guys like Sasuke Uchiha getting all the girls, so why should I play fair. Which reminds me I should probably check his stats when I see him.

After doing some quick math I summarized that every point in END probably equated to 100 HP per stat, and chakra regen per minute is increased by 1 per every WIS stat point.

Soon after, Sakura and Sasuke arrived just before class started. I used observe on both of them.

Name: Sakura Haruno Age: 10

LVL: 2 EXP: 3/34

Title: Fan girl Affiliation: Konoha

Race: Human

HP: 500/500

CP: 50/50

Her physical stats are really bad, but mental stats are pretty high.

Name: Sasuke Uchiha Age: 10

LVL: 4 EXP: 0/60

Title: Last Uchiha Affiliation: None

Race: Human

HP: 700/700

MP: 500/500

STR: 6

END: 5

AGI: 7

INT: 8

WIS: 8

ENG: 6

LUK: 6

Good stats, but what can you expect from the 'Perfect Uchiha'.

"Hey Sasuke, you want to go on a date with me?" Sakura asked Sasuke with a hopeful expression.

"No" he quickly responded and then sat on his normal chair

"Hey Sakura…"

"Shut up Naruto, I'm not going on a date with you" and the she swung her arm trying to punch me in the head, but I caught the punch and looked into her eyes.

"Now listen here you bitch and listen well, I was only trying to wish you a good day and you try to punch me? If you ever do that shit again it break your fuckin Neck, and don't worry about me asking you on a date, I'm afraid that if I ever dated you when you tried to kiss me, you'd break my head with your huge forehead" I said to her using with an expression of rage in my face.

I then sat next to Sasuke and said "You're lucky, I'm blocking the fan girls from talking to you".

Sasuke stared at me without moving an inch for like about 10 seconds, before asking.

"Who are you, the dobe would never talk like that to Sakura or would help me?" I calmly looked at him and at this point half of the class was staring at us but I paid them no attention.

"I'm Naruto, Naruto Uzumaki. I'm not an impostor, it's just that circumstances and some thinking has led me to focus my priorities. I intend to live my life in a way I can make me and my parents, may they rest in peace, proud, and as such I have no intention of returning to living a life thinking about Sakura and trying to get attention at every waking moment. And because I know how you fell about your family I think that maybe we could become friends. You might think I have simply found another way to get attention, but I assure you I simply want to make the most of my life, and to do that I can no longer live as I have before. Now, lesson is about to start, if you want to say something save it for the break." I replied without hesitating and without pausing, thinking back at it I must have a bit tired. I suppose that's because of the reminder of myself before that messed up 'tutorial' boss.

Most of the class at this point had a shocked look on their faces whilst I was sat back down at my seat and opened my Taijutsu textbook to begin studying. Along with some whispers about them disbelieving I have changed, some about this being the first time I had talked back to Sakura and some giving me the benefit of the doubt etc…

In any case, that's not my problem, I intend to increase my INT as much as I can ASAP for the 4ft year exams, and so I used every moment during the lesson to study when I can.

I made sure to pay attention during the first class whilst occasionally using observe on various people. Hinata's and

Shikamaru's stats physical stats were around and above the average adult, with STR and AGI hovering around 7.

Shikamaru's INT and WIS stats were actually pretty good, being 20 each. Other than that, the rest of the class was pretty standard for academy students except that their INT was usually their highest stat. It would seem that most of the girls had an average to above average LUK stat whilst the boys generally somehow had shitty LUK stats.

You have listened in class and took notes diligently, as a result your INT has increased by 1.

Sakura did not talk to me during the breaks in between classes and instead glared at me intensely.

They were definitely hostile glares…

You have gained a skill from detecting bloodlust!

[Detect Bloodlust] – Passive – Lvl.3/100 EXP: 18%

Description: An ability to detect bloodlust directed at you. Range increases by 3 meters per level.

Current range: 11 meters

After studying and getting though more classes till the lunch break.

You have listened in class and took notes diligently, as a result your INT has increased by 1.

I had gained another INT point. After lunch break me, Shikamaru and Chouji went to talk with me on the rooftop. Where the 'talk' basically revolved around asking why I decided to make such a drastic change I decided to shock them a bit and I took off my shirt and showed them my scars which I got from the fight. A deep one on my left shoulder, a medium horizontal slash at the center of my torso, some minor slash scars on the rest of my chest and one shallow slash on my arm.

"Don't bother asking where I got them, I won't be telling you anytime soon. But what I can say that I intend to make sure I won't be getting any more of these." After that I put back on my shirt, and went to the cafeteria to eat.

Using [Observe] on the food shows that eating food grants temporary stat bonuses through usually with an AGI penalty, makes sense that you can't move as fast on a full stomach. Most of the food heals HP by a percentage amount, which is good for me since that means I can stock up on food in my inventory and the benefits of the food will scale well when I get stronger.

After school I made a trip to the library and noted down some books on mythology that apparently enables me to learn skills from them. After that I went and bought a Bokken from a store, the purchase left me with 450 ryo left. I should ask Teuchi-jiji for chores so I can get some extra cash as well. As I walked home I picked up whatever sticks, stones and leaves I saw on the way.

I jogged back home and went to the hidden garden in the forest at the back of my any case I tried to create the skill [ID Create], while the Chakra gathered in my hand and was about to spread out it returned back to my body, it would seem that I either need more ENG or INT. So I decide to use a Skyrim disc I had and a text box appeared.

You have acquired a skill disc!

Would you like to learn [Elder Scrollsverse Magic]?

Yes/No

I hit yes and another text box appeared.

[Elder Scrollsverse Affinity] – Passive –

Description: An affinity that allows the user to freely use Elder Scrolls Magic and techniques from the Elder Scrollsverse.

Effects may differ from the Elder Scrollsverse based on the rules of your current world.

And because I probably needed more INT and ENG to create an ID so I decided to use Elder Scrollsverse Magic to level up my ENG and practice some control.

Quest Alert! (Optional)

Title: Learn Elder Scrollsverse Magic before the evening!

Objectives: Make Elder Scrollsverse Magic into skills.

Completion reward: 100 EXP per magic skill learnt

Failure penalty: None

I accepted the quest without hesitation, no way am I turning down free EXP.

I took out some sticks used [Observe], then I tried to flow the now available mana into a branch and to analyze the contents, structure and purpose of the item. Soon information about its purpose as a tree branch to hold leaves and pass on nutrients flowed in my head, then the branch fell as a result of a fat cat landing on it, then it was picked up by me. This took about 3 minutes for it to work.

You have gained 2 new skills through a special action.

[Structural Grasp] – Active – Lvl.1/100 EXP: 40% MP cost: 3

Description: A skill that allows the user to analyze the contents, structure and purpose of the item. As the level increase, more information can be gained and at a quicker rate.

Next up is [Reinforcement], this time I flow mana into the branch and tried to fill in the gaps whilst forcing the brittle parts to harden, at the same time I compressed the wood inwards in the shape of sharp pick. This took about a minute.

OK, I seem to have accidentally used two types of spells at the same time. Good thing the Mana and Chakra poll where the same. Not sure why I've been succeeding the first time so far, I mean what happened to all that 'To be a mage is to walk with that shit', I haven't even loss any HP.

[Observe]

I look at the branch and saw that it now resembled a sharp wooden pick, it was also harder than before. I decided to store it in my inventory in case I need to gouge out someone's eyeball in the future.

[Altered Wooden Pick] – Rank: F – Durability: 6/5 – ATK: 3 +0.3

Description: Originally an ordinary wooden branch, alteration has reshaped it into a dense and sharp wooden pick.

Perfect for gouging out eyeballs.

That took 13 mana in total including using [Observe] but I had already regenerated about 70 mana since it took 4 minutes to do all that.

Next up on the list is [Projection], it's probably still a shit no matter what I do, but I need another Bokken to practice dual wielding until I learn [Tracing]. I take out my Bokken from my inventory and used [Structural Grasp] and [Observe] on it.

[Cheap Bokken] – Rank: F – Durability: 20/20 – ATK: 8

Description: A cheap Bokken, useful enough to bash a couple of heads in, durability varies based on denseness of the head it hits.

Let's see if I can get at least get [Projection] to work. After making sure none of my neighbours are looking in. I then imagine the Cheap Bokken with all the paltry history behind it, it's not [Tracing] since I'm not using all the extra steps, but I think it might turn up better than some crappy normal projection if I use its history.

Definitely the luckiest day of my life. Tutorial Boss aside. [Observe]

[Projected Cheap Bokken] – Rank: G – Durability: 8/8 – ATK: 3- Duration: 3 hours

Description: A cheap Bokken, useful enough to bash a couple of heads in, durability varies based on denseness of the head it hits. It's projected, so it sucks (more).

Its 4:10 pm right now and the projection will fade by dinner time so I better get started ASAP. But first I will have to rewatch the Sword Art Online with Kirito vs. Gleameyes in slow motion, I have to at least try to copy [Starburst Stream], I mean, the skill name is too cool to ignore.

5 minutes later

I began to get used to attacking with my dual Bokkens, surprisingly my shitty projected Bokken was of equal weight to my actual Bokken, which I guess is a benefit.

After an hour of practicing basic slashes, blocks and parries whilst mixing things up with a mix of the previous spells that I learned for mana efficiency sake through. Which consisted of projecting more bokkens, altering them to make them sharper then reinforcing them. I managed to get all those skills to Lvl.3, although sadly I did not get a [Blocking] or [Parrying] skill. I also did a couple of standard exercises like push-ups and sit-ups in between. All in all I managed to get 1 STR, AGI and END in that hour. Which honestly is pretty amazing for an hour's work. If there are any moderators I pray that they don't nerf me.

As a result of making a series of efficient and pragmatic choices, your WIS has increased by 1.

After a 5 minute rest the time is now 5:20pm, I then went on to start recreating [Starburst Stream]. First I do a horizontal swing to the left with the sword in my right sword followed by an uppercut immediately from my sword in left hand. Then I do a full circle jump spin slash with both swords from left to right, and I spin on the ground again slicing with both swords left to right. Next I swing both swords down in an X-shape and then I do an inverse X-shape slash with both swords again.

Next I...completely forgot... the rest of the steps. So embarrassing, what am I doing with my life, I'm not trying to look cool or anything, I just wanted a strong sword skill, why do I feel so embarrassed from failing to even finish a third of the anime version of [Starburst Stream].

A/N: I hope you guys like the fic, if you like High School DxD check the story this story is inspired from which was written by NickTheHun and it's called "Issei's Gamer Life was harder than he expected".

And also although this first chapter is really similar to Nick's first chapter, it will branch out in the next chapters. Also do not accuse me of copying Nick because every single word I took from his story was allowed by him because I asked for permission.

And I'll see you guys later.
