DarkHunter10 chapter 29 . 1/17
The fourth NEVER could be summoned (it's another MAJOR plot hole from the Konoha Crush)... It was retroactively changed to never allow someone that has been sealed to be summoned (something BOTH orochimaru and Sarutobi should have known, one would assume, although if orochimaru DIDN'T... You could always throw a "performance issues" joke, like Tony Stark from avengers, at him). That was a pretty huge plot hole, the fact that the anbu didn't just drill up through the BUILDING that orochi and sarutobi were fighting on (it was a roof) in order to get around the "barrier" was another plot hole, or just bring the building DOWN... The fact that the second hokage was the one that developed the edo and could BREAK it with a chant at any time, even while controlled... Was ALSO retro-actively added... (but not used here)... Add in the "barrier" that was supposed to be around konoha (and apparently always HAD been) and you see there are a LOT of plot holes in this "crush".

"i don't know what to do"... Seems naruto is a "broken record" that just keeps REPEATING the same thing over and over. He's asked: Hinata, the third, jiraiya, the toads themselves, Kurenai, Anko, Kyuubi, his mother, his father, his brother... SHEEZ how many more times is he just going to repeat the SAME thing? I think he's gotten all the "advice" he's ever gonna get.

What "answers" was naruto looking for? All he kept saying was "why me?"... Well... What if the whole answer IS... "why NOT?"... Or "because it just is"?... OR "random chance"?...OR "our personalities match"?... OR "Because we're tied to your bloodline"?... Those things ALL happen... Sometimes there is NO greater reason then... "it just is".

You got Hiashi acting like an IDIOT... "You two are acting like children"... OF COURSE THEY ARE... He's TREATING THEM AS CHILDREN! He CANNOT have it BOTH WAYS... Either they ARE ADULTS.. And he have NO SAY in them dating! OR they are CHILDREN and he does have a say, and they WILL act like children... He can have ONE OR THE OTHER but not BOTH! That is LOGISTICALLY impossible. Plus as far as them fighting... Why would two people in love, FIGHT each other just for some STUPID exhibition that neither really gives a crap about? It says more to their maturity if they wouldn't have fought AT ALL! It just shows that the OTHER people are far more IMMATURE! (think about it, they pine and pine for loves that they have lost... But would gladly have FOUGHT them to death, if they are put on a stage? How stupid is that?) Seems Hiashi has taken STUPIDITY pills before this chapter.

So dumbed down Anko huh? I mean I appreciate that you DID NOT have naruto hear Kabuto (as he would have KNOWN that he was a spy, the second kabuto started speaking)... But here, you have Orochimaru go straight up to Anko... Get CALLED OUT AT REEKING OF SNAKES (which you already said in an earlier chapter ONLY orochimaru had... And Anko by extension), but anko (who HATES orochi) didn't notice that? Plus the "ninja" used "her" tongue to give back the kunai... when ONLY orochimaru uses that jutsu... Like NOBODY else. anywhere, ever... (probably because of the body modifications) but AGAIN anko doesn't notice? My advice? Drop this interaction COMPLETELY, since it doesn't make sense. It NEVER did. So MANY times during the "konoha crush", orochi and his "side" DROPS THE BALL and displays their ENTIRE hand to konoha, and time and again, in canon the characters fail to notice... Which, kinda makes them functionally retarded. Not smart, competent, scary, paranoid killers! It doesn't make orochimaru look like a "strategic genius".. It makes him LUCKY everyone in konoha has the intelligence of a HOUSEPLANT! You've made better characters till now... PLEASE don't dumb them down to canon, now!

So naruto tells them his "humanity status"? Not "I'm training in the assassin arts"? Which is WHAT THEY WANTED TO KNOW (where he went, why he went away with other jounin), not "I'm the hokage's successor"? Which would explain a LOT MORE... (why he is trained by so many, why he is glared at *jealousy*, why he was taken in by the sarutobi clan... etc)... He picks the ONE AND ONLY thing that can wreck his life the worst, to tell them, when that information has almost NEXT TO NOTHING to do with them AT ALL? Plus, they would never understand why that info should be KEPT secret.. IQ pts continuing to FALL!

"both were wrong"? No, actually naruto never did ANYTHING wrong at all... He was going to die.. He was BEATEN (he was SOMEHOW too slow to keep up with haku, you neutralized his kekkei kenkai, he doesn't KNOW any good "offensive" jutsu... AND he lost his weapon) He was beaten.. DEAD... SOOOO If the devil offers a chance at life? It's NOT a choice (to HELL with konoha), you TAKE IT. Sarutobi needs to realize or naruto needs to tell him.. He just does NOT love konoha like he does... NEVER WILL.. Hokage or not, they will have VERY DIFFERENT "leadership styles"... (if you can even CALL what sarutobi does... "leadership" at all, which I posit, you cannot)... The third cares for konoha as a whole TOO MUCH.. It makes him a weak leader! He wants to "appease" everyone.. Which is an impossibility.

Add to the fact that Minato put the kyuubi in naruto TO USE! It's SUPPOSED to be called on, IN THOSE SITUATIONS... Otherwise, naruto would NOT have even been made INTO a jinchuriki... (although he was already PART jinchuriki.. Or part kitsune, depending how you look at it).. So sarutobi was ENTIRELY in the wrong (AGAIN). Surprising how he can be SO WRONG, on so many levels simultaneously.

With Ino? No matter what she or any other girl tried, nobody could break his cold exterior? You know what's beyond that? A cold INTERIOR. It's relatively IDENTICAL to the exterior, except now he might consider killing them to get the M. Sharringan... Altogether a very hate-able, villain character. (very superficially written... But it's a villain character, you don't really have to go "deep" there).

The uchiha's "trauma" has always struck me as VERY "weak sauce", because A LOT of characters in the series have nearly IDENTICAL backstories but they aren't treated as anything special... The uchiha clan were LOONEY TUNES from the jump.. Madara was the progenitor and the dude has some SERIOUS SCREWS LOOSE... There is absolutely NOTHING about the entire CLAN that I would deem "redeemable" or "noble"... With every single generation EVENTUALLY flipping out over some immature or asinine reason or other. So nah, never saw the "dichotomy" of yin and yang between naruto and sasuke... If nothing else, it should be naruto and kurama that are the yang and yin focus.
DarkHunter10 chapter 11 . 1/10
"the uchiha charm"? ROFL... First Mizuki an "elite chunnin", now the uchiha having ANYTHING except "nonexistent" charm... I've actually had a few CHUCKLES at this story. The uchiha have about as much "charm" as a rabid, disease ridden, HAGFISH.
DarkHunter10 chapter 10 . 1/10
Mizuki... an "elite chuunin"? ROFL... Yeah RIGHT... Naruto in canon beat him with NO training AT ALL, NO "inhuman speed", NO "inhuman strength"... Or really ANYTHING ELSE.. In fact... Even NO BRAINS... An "elite chuunin"? That's like calling a taco bell 5 dollar bag... a "gourmet meal"... ROFL. KIBA could have probably taken out Mizuki. Mizuki wasn't even a "threat" when enhanced by an Orochimaru jutsu later on... (which is hilarious when you think he SOMEHOW had his ENTIRE back covered in that tattoo to make the formula... But NOBODY in the YEAR or more of prison, noticed the whole thing being covered!... It shows that even Kishimotto thought the character was an ABSOLUTE joke).
DarkHunter10 chapter 9 . 1/10
Wait I'm confused... You had Sarutobi GIVE naruto a teacher (in asuma) AND tell him he wouldn't be able to help him, IN THE SAME CONVERSATION... So Which is it? Is he GOING TO help naruto learn his knives or is he going to be too busy (apparently doing nothing, since most Jounin just spy on their kids and walk around aimlessly all day, everyday in most of these stories) I'm not entirely sure what the point of even bringing UP getting a teacher for his knife skills, if your just going to say in the next paragraph that Gai and Asuma won't be around as much (which is actually kinda funny, since asuma hasn't been around AT ALL till now anyway) I am not even sure what your SHOOTING for, thematic wise here. Just seemed very "garbled".

It's also a LITTLE bizarre that you have a "drunk ninja" infiltrate the LEADER'S home... You have him ATTACK his grandsons and his daughter-in-law... But it's all "OH WELL"? NO.. This would be HELL TO PAY time. like for EVERY SINGLE guard, security officer, even every single NINJA in konoha.. This would be BEYOND a "big deal"... It SHOULD BE CRIPPLING to the village. For MONTHS if not YEARS to come. Think about it... "A NATION'S LEADER'S kid and grandkids were attacked, in their OWN HOME, ON A MILITARY BASE, surrounded (supposedly) by the people that WORK for that leader (and were supposed to be competent at their jobs)".. The nation would LOOSE IT'S COLLECTIVE MIND... It would be UTTER CHAOS for a VERY long time (and everyone that was SUPPOSED to be protecting the place, would either be FIRED or "vanish"), there would be MASSIVE amounts of "retraining" and "re-evaluations of skill" of ALL troops, since the guy was "drunk off his gourd" and got PAST (again, supposedly) sober, competent guards. It would be VERY UGLY (at the very LEAST for all the NINJA of the village).
DarkHunter10 chapter 8 . 1/10
How are all these "drunk" ninja allowed to BE in konoha? You realize ONE, JUST ONE bad "earth jutsu" from a drunk and the civilian quarter would be RUBBLE... Or ONE "fire jutsu" in the civilian area... AND BAM "the Chicago fire".. It would UTTER CHAOS... I cannot believe how many writers do this "drunk ninja" troupe when it should be IMPOSSIBLE for any "drunk ninja" to be walking around ANYWHERE in konoha (or any of the ninja villages)... They would either NOT be allowed to drink AT ALL... Be MUCH MORE "conditioned" (from early childhood) to NEVER use their powers while drunk (as in MENTAL BLOCKS even) OR they would be regulated TO HELL AND BACK.. Every bar would have like DOZENS of ANBU watching everyone that leaves them, 24/7... You just CANNOT FUNCTION as a society with DRUNK SUPERPOWERED people... (watch HANDCOCK and that was ONE.. 1,000s of superpowered? HAHA.. Yeah, they'd never have been able to FORM a village)... It just doesn't work. The ONLY time ninja should EVER be "drunk" is OUT ON MISSIONS (simply because, there is no way to control that)

So is this abandoned now?
Would be sad if it is….
DarkHunter10 chapter 6 . 12/29/2023
Um not too sure why you have sarutobi thinking this bloodline is so powerful/important... I mean Orochimaru does the same "melting into a tree" thing during the Chunin exams and a few other times... Kabuto does it too, several times... Then there is Zetsu, this is BASICALLY his MAIN power(he melts into the ground, trees, rocks.. Anything). Soooo... Kinda a known jutsu isn't it? Kinda cool idea, but it seems like a LOT of other people can do the same thing, which makes it weird to be important or even a bloodline. Maybe if it was taken a few steps FURTHER, like do MORE then just "enter a thing and move through it"...
DarkHunter10 chapter 5 . 12/26/2023
You know you can only write "the boy has so much potential" so many times before it becomes really REDUNDANT right? Really the only one LIMITING naruto is sarutobi, while he keeps bawking that "his potential is unlimited" or other such euphemisms...The kid has UNLIMITED chakra... He has more reserves (due to being an uzumaki) and a "special chakra" AND a "powerful life force" ALREADY, plus add in the kyuubi... (which has the added wrinkle of, he was FORMING while it was in his mother, as well).. But the third just keeps "banging his head" on the way EVERYBODY trains... (the academy 3 and just physical work)... He SHOULD know better by now... Naruto is UNIQUE, completely DIFFERENT then anyone else.. So, he should PROBABLY start back-to-front... START with the jutsus... Get the "fine control" down LAST. The weights have already PROVEN to be pointless for a "regenerator"... That's always been a complaint of mine.. As "normal" anime ways of getting stronger, really SHOULDN'T apply here.
