Greatest story ever!

Just to let you know, the last bit of this chapter is freaking awesome when you're listening to Mussorgsky's Night on Bald Mountain. And you're freaking awesome *scurries on to the next chapter*

Yeah, real suped for that big fight right?
Anyways, just wanted to say that I'm still eagerly awaiting the next chapter in this dark comedy you call a story.
I had decided to reread all of your stories and in doing so, iv come to enjoy them even more then the first time.

I just finished chapter 13 and I can already say this is a favorite. Gotta love your writing style.

Hmm, a reference? *Google search* THAT’S NOT PUNNY DAMNIT!
ARRRGHH…I’LL NEVER BE ABLE TO WATCH THAT NOW…I think I’m going to be sick…guess not…*holds head in hands*
This story needs to be filmed / animated.
And I guess if you are going to make terrible puns with your character’s names, this is the series to do it in.

That was a good start. It was very well written. I'm not catching the humor genre though. It seems very dark to me. I like it although unless it lightens up later down the line I think you might have mis classified it. Personally I like the dark aspect and hope it keeps to more serious tones. Well done.

In retrospect, the timeskip thing was actually a good idea. This “arc” was longer than your others but you were essentially writing two of them at once. You did a good job trying to hint at how the team had changed since the mission and have them deal with their problems back in Konoha at the same time. The timing of the flashback also worked well. You let it simmer until the problems in Konoha seemed more significant than what happened on the mission. Then once we had the impression that everything that happened then was explained you completely blew us away. I didn’t know how right I was when I compared the second arc to the greatest horror movie ever made.
Your sense for comedy also kept this story’s horror elements from dragging it down. The pigeon scene was hilariously awkward like something out of Curb Your Enthusiasm or Fantastic Mr. Fox and I never knew that OMGWTFBBQ could be used in a normal conversation. It’s also nice to see a story where the Jounin and Hokage actually do their jobs and deserve the authority that they have. Most people take the option supported by canon that the nine rookies are already Chuunin level by the time they graduate. The setting of Naruto is rich, even though it’s hard to see from watching the show. You’ve fleshed it out, added to it, and did it all with a polished execution.

"can speak in bold letters"
Honestly, I hadn't actually laughed out loud at your story yet by this point (this is a hilarious and generally excellent fic though), but after reading this I was hysterical for several minutes.
I haven't reviewed yet (I never review) but I couldn't not review after reading that. I just wanted to say this is a brilliant story and that you should actually try novel writing, and if you ever publish one post about it on your author page.
I wanna see what fucked up ideas and humourous situations you can create with a universe fully under your control. You're surely original enough to pull it off and I'd like to be the first one to see it.

oh, lawd. the legion comment sealed it. God Bear from the previous chapter... You sir, are a TRUE and HONEST geinus.
| Dark lanter chapter 34 . 10/17/2011
This is one of the most mentally messed up and orignal fanfics i've ever read. It was well written, and thought out well. I look forward to ur next chapters.

I love you so much right now. When I read the description you gave, I was thing 'wait a minute, is that a fucking shoggoth?', and then you went and confirmed it. I love this story, and this chapter's confirmed it. Although, I must say that the described ritual markings made me think of Samael from Silent Hill, despite the overall Lovecraftian tones. Although, what the flaming fuck was with the pickle dream? I laughed so hard.

What’s with the time skip? Who is Midori? Something must have happened to make Naruto’s team start getting along so well but it’s awkward to see all of this without any context. It’ll probably be explained in the next few chapters though and you’re a good enough writer to pull something like this off from what I’ve seen.

What the hell is wrong with you, categorizing this as "Adventure/Humor"?
I mean seriously, its humor only if you are decidedly sick.
Otherwise good, although like most stories I've seen whose initial appeal strongly depends on creating an interesting narrative tone it seems to be rapidly weakening.
Also your creation of tone is in my view the most important thing you did with the early story, setting up Naruto as the disturbed abused kid who doesn't think like a normal human as a result. And writing so that we feel like we are inside his head.
On the other hand, to what extent are we supposed to actually see this version of Naruto as a hero?

I've been reading a lot of this on my Kindle, but... I'm really quite amazed at how good this got. The scenes with the pigeon are hysterically funny, on a par with anything from Methods of Rationality. I got a taste of what it's like for a reader to be laughing out loud for a minute with the 'Hn' scene. And just in this chapter, the way Naruto *immediately* tries to set up Sasuke to kill him to get a Mangekyo... and fails... that's so Munchkin, and so subversive of what I'm sure is a standard trope in Naruto fanfiction... I don't recommend many fics to my readers, but I'll recommend this one.
