I'm glad I kept reading this even though I was quite turned off in the beginning by the weird modern references, weird grammar and spelling, etc. And it's really quite sad that you've abandoned this tale. It has so much potential. Maybe one day...?

uh... Sandaime Hokage's name is Sarutobi Hiruzen. Sarutobi Sasuke was Hiruzen's father.

So you update this.. 7 years ago! :o I can't believe it's been that long! I have read this story and adored this story and have deemed it one of THE BEST stories of Naruto time-travel I have ever read. I sincerely hope that you finish this, because it is just that awesome. No joke. You're an amazing writer!

I really do have to appreciate the fact you managed to create a fic where so many really strong shinobi all underwent a time-travel jutsu yet didn't seem too OP. I've always figured that if too many of the Konoha 12 were to travel to the past the result would be a not very enjoyable story because they'd simply be collectively too strong. This fic proved me wrong.
The other thing I've got to appreciate is how one character doesn't hog the spotlight all the time. Sure Naruto does get mentioned the most often but that is actually, almost impossible to avoid. After all he is the leader of the group, and if I had to be frank the most influential of the group. Everyone else has one reason or another to look up to him, and all accept the fact he's the leader without a qualm.
Though talking about a congregation of strong individuals. I just realized how damn haxed the group that will eventually go to Takani really is. You've got the members of the Konoha 12. You've got 2 out of three of the Sannin. You've got Minato and his team who all become legends in their own rights. Seriously, is their any enemy out there who could engage this group and hope to win? Uh, I should clarify that the enemy is referring to a single individual. Not a group, since even the best, most powerful shinobi would still fall to sheer number.

I fear for Konoha's near future with two pranksters of epic proportions on the loose.

I think I'm gonna forever find it funny that the stranger one's habits are the higher the likelihood their stupidly strong. I find Gai to probably be the best example of this.

Honestly, you'll know something is seriously wrong when Lee gives up his "Power of Youth!" motto.
| Yuunari chapter 18 . 6/1
Interesting! Bawled my eyes out these last few chapters. The feels were real. I really wasn't expecting that at all in the end and the shock factor was intense. But I have to say, for Jounin/Kage they seriously lack a lot of the power they are famous for. Makes they fights a bit lack luster and kind of 'meh'.

Sad you're abandoning this story, but thanks for sharing what you have written. I enjoy reading your story which has a great combination of seriousness and funniness. I literally laughed out loud at the part with Itachi and his mom and his "report". I hope you get your inspiration back and decide to continue this story. You have MANY fans!

Honestly this fic just brings a smile to my face. So many kids are actually acting like kids, instead of grownups who never had a childhood. The other thing I greatly appreciate is how you avoided the problem I'd always thought would happen if too many shinobi from the future somehow time-traveled. Since their not helping only one village but rather are traveling merchants they manage to use their immense ability for everyone's benefit. It's quite heartwarming actually. Especially how kids like Kakashi and Itachi actually have the opportunity to be kids even briefly instead of being mere tools or slaves to their own ideologies.
| Anonymous Person chapter 10 . 3/6
Woah, I didn't realize you'd made the young Kakashi quite this stubborn. I would've thought the fairly long exposure to actually having friends might've caused him to make a different decision in that moment.
| Anonymous Person chapter 5 . 3/5
Ugh, do you have any idea how bittersweet this fic is?! The most interesting/worst parts are the ones where you insert some snapshot of the war which devastated Konoha. Honestly, the transition from reading about Chouji pulling a prank (of sorts) on Shikamaru of all people to reading about something Konohamaru did during the catastrophic war is pretty dang big! Either way, it does create a crazy big contrast yet makes it extremely bittersweet as well.

You know? The part where Minato was thinking about reactions of people when they first see shinobi doing "normal" shinobi things is something that I've never actually thought about before. I just realized how big of a shock it must be to see people wearing that kind of clothing with many weapons on their person. Not to mention if they were ANBU perhaps seeming to appear out of thin air or walking up a wall. I guess it's because pretty much all fics are written from the perspective of someone in the know as opposed to just a normal civilian.
