I told you man, these things take time!

I remember mentioning this in the last "Next Update" thread, but I don't think it ever really caught on.

Virtually all Meta-Chakra feats are designed to work with Genjutsu and/or Ninjutsu, while Fuinjutsu gets very little love. I mean, sure you get Blood Mage and Path of the Fiendfire, but both of those involve spending a charge to gain a set benefit rather than actually modifying a Fuinjutsu technique.

For that reason, I think that either modifying some of the existing Meta-Chakra feats (e.g. Efficient Technique, Extend Technique, Protective Technique, etc.) to be Fuinjutsu-friendly, or perhaps even adding a few Fuinjutsu-exclusive Meta-Chakra feats, would be nice. As-is, I feel like Fuinjutsu techniques (along with Chakra Control techniques) remain sort of the black sheep of the family; nice to dabble in, but not really capable of the same level of power that you can get from specializing in them like you can with Genjutsu, Ninjutsu and Taijutsu.

I think this is because as shown in the manga, these two things are really just things that people dabble in. Chakra Control isn't even really a type of technique in the manga, it's a skill that applies to the general use of techniques(ala the talk in the early chapters of more efficient use of chakra)

Fuinjutsu has never been shown to be someone's main thing in the manga. Sure we've had people who are extremely skilled in it but it's never been shown to be something a person could focus completely in. All great Fuinjutsu users have always had something else that they did just as good or were better in.

Now this isn't to say that I disagree with you completely. I do think Fuinjutsu could do with a bit more options in terms of feats.

And to Frankto, looking forward to some these updates. Gisou no Jutsu sounds intriguing and I'm looking forward to more options for the Monstrous Race.

Sadly true. Fuuinjutsu can be crazy powerful if you use a little imagination, but as stated it is mostly just dabbled in. I see it as a support type of techniques mostly. I would however like to see the teleportation barrier Minato used fleshed out.

Here's with an update to the update status. I think some puppeteers, who shall remain nameless who know who they are, will like this one.

Also, this shit is why I don't have a wiki or an actual table of contents.

Well, I continue to be Tardis-free, but I'm going to start putting together the files to release an update sometime today or tomorrow.
