To anyone confused at the name Arashi instead of Minato, there was a time when the Yondaime didn’t have a name and fans tried to read out the previous name before Naruto’s on Jiraiya’s summoning scroll, considering he might be the latest addition before Naruto. Fans settled on the name Kazama Arashi.

The story generally has no plot or direction or goal or motive. It's just an easy slice of life piece focusing on family and social interactions in an alternate but similar Naruto universe.

what a bizarre, nonsensical story. I guess that's what accounted for good in 2007.

I'm not going to read the preview, since the second book is already out, but I have to say this was a *great* story from start to finish.
You avoided the most common fanfiction pitfall of explaining too much, which made the entire thing interesting from start to finish. None of the reveals were too obvious, yet they made complete sense (too many novice writers try to "fake out" the reader/watcher). There was a decent amount of completely original material, as well as a completely novel take on a well-worn idea that I think at least 70% of Naruto fans have thought about (what if Naruto had his family).
And not only that, but you made Naruto have to make a choice that was *hard* for him to make. One that put his greatest want at odds with his no-compromise personality.
This wasn't just throwing some characters in a situation and seeing what developed. This was...
Well, as you can tell, I liked it a lot. I'm still not entirely sure about the magic (chakra but better), but that is literally the only thing I can think to nitpick.

What? Naruto almost lost to Mizuki? Honestly I wonder if you know what you are doing. Naruto literally destroyed him before he was a Genin and now he could barely beat him?
