From start to finish

Oh my god! I'd be embarassed, too! Not just regretful. Poor Naruto…

Torture is not so efficient, and that was pretty well displayed by the torture scene in the last chapter. Torture is a good way to get people to say what you want, but it doesn't mean they will tell the truth or even know what you want. It is very commonly used to obtain false confessions and scapegoats.
However, saying that it works is a wonderful way to rationalize doing horrible things, and at the moment Kakashi is just trying to make naruto feel better so it makes sense that he would say so.

Wow...kabuto freakin me out now! He reminds of that creature on lord of the rings who wanted the ring.
| Kell Shock chapter 4 . 4/23/2010
So despite Naruto swearing to not break his promise, so much so that he leaves Konoha, he ends up breaking it anyways? Bah.
| Weavers chapter 5 . 5/12/2009
Urgh :/ Warn us about OCs. Your story was kinda okay until then, but OCs ruin it, especially overly-friendly with Naruto and gonna-be-sidekick ones.

you completely skipped the whole team building scenario. you just arbitrarily added people to the story. this was a good story, a little rough, but good. now... well, i know I'm just a guy on the internet who has yet to contribute to . but you lost me.
| Balder-sama chapter 1 . 7/27/2008
Wow. Very well done. Like the emotions in this chapter. And for once, its original. I thought this was gonna be one of those "naruto returns without sasuke, village want their precious uchiha, sakura pissed off, ban naruto" crappy fanfics but I was wrong.
Kudos to you. Gonna read the next chappie now.

Fifty three chapters... Are you glad it's over?
The story itself was lush and thorough, from ROOTS to the Akatsuki. There was action... lots of action, but all of it written very precisely, and I could imagine what was going on in my head.
The character development was actually unexpected at first. I never would have thought Naruto wouldn't realize his developing feelings for Suki... and although a part of me liked the idea of Sasuke and Naruto fighting over Sakura, I'm glad Naruto was given a character who's likable, and not a Mary Sue of some sorts. Sasuke and Naruto's interaction was fantastic (I've said this a million times, I just know it) and the enemies were as well. Also, your original characters, specifically Naruto's former teammates. They were all quite likable and it was a shame to see them go so soon. Original characters are always tricky and usually I don't like them, but the fact that I still remember them now, well, I guess they impacted the story a little more than I thought they would.
I kept wondering "Does this thing REALLY have to be over chapters?" but your story and your writing is so dense, I guess there's no choice, huh? And the very last part made me crack up. Oh man, Naruto and Sasuke have corrupted their children!
You deserve a pat on the back for sticking it through and for doing such a great job. Cheers to you and whatever future projects you have. Keep it coming!

| Bubblegumcrazed chapter 53 . 7/16/2008
Aw. What adorable ending to an awesome story, I'm actuly going to be sad to let it go.. Oh well, all good things must come to an end.
| echolock chapter 53 . 7/13/2008
That was just too cute a story. Congratulations, I am a bit... Difficult to impress when it comes to fanfiction, and you have done it.
I hope to see more stories from you in the future.
| Is That Rhetorical chapter 53 . 7/13/2008
Wow. I guess that's that then.
I hate to sound like a critic, but this was a spectacular ending to a spectacular story. It took fifty three chapters and more than a year to tell, and I can't imagine doing it myself, but you pulled it off very well for someone who claims to be almost as lazy as Shikamaru. I have no doubt that I'll come back and read this again at least once now that it's all up, and I'm also looking forward to that other large Naruto project you mentioned earlier.
Don't stop writing.

I've been with this story since chapter 3 I think, and now it makes me both happy and sad to see it finished. Truly a great story.

A ROUND OF APPLAUSE FOR KING OF SLACKERS!
(*A crowd pops out of nowhere and begins cheering*)
ANOTHER ROUND FOR THIS AWESOME STORY!
(*The crowd cheers even louder*)
Really, congratulations on completing this story. I've been reading this thing since...oh, probably chapter 12. And I gotta say, you did an excellent job. I really loved reading this thing, and canon-wise, I could really see the real Naruto doing everything yours did. Leaving Konoha to train, confronting Sasuke and convincing him to return. Fighting off ROOT and Danzo by himself (and hundreds of clones too!), dealing with Kisame and Itachi so many times...
Really, congratulations! ANOTHER APPLAUSE! LET THE FLAMES OF YOUTH SHINE WITH GLORY UPON THIS FIC!
(The crowd erupts into their loudest cheers, fireworks begin going off in the background, and Gai and Lee hug each other while a sunset appears behind them and waves crash into cliff, tears flowing down their faces.)
...(sweatdrop) Okay, this review is officially very weird.
