You are certainly a very good writer, since I read through everything without even noticing the review box...

Not my typical cup of tea as far as fan fiction goes, but a pleasurable deviation. It struck me as a sort of slice-of-life, action hybrid and I enjoyed it a lot more than I expected. It was very interesting to see the ANBU as something more than those random ninja who die all over the place during the series. They're also regular people with friends and lives and hopes and dreams. You struck a good mood between depressingly dark and hopelessly naive.
I really can't say enough about the relationship between Raido and Naruto. It was great seeing someone care for a young Naruto, regardless of how unaffected he seemed in canon. There's just something heartwarming about a typically broken character (or a character who should have been broken if there was a degree of realism in the series) finding someone who cares about them. It was even nicer to see the effect of Naruto's childhood innocence on the hard-boiled ANBU agents. It granted them a certain humanity that you wouldn't expect from ninja.
Anyway, I really enjoyed it. Your story was very well written and significantly different from most of the Naruto stories in circulation.

chapter 5, two thirds the way down, trying to get Kakashi to teach Naruto. hatake calls raidou 'Namiashi-taichou' you may want to fix that.
(This is my second time reading this fanfic. It was just too awesome to leave me alone the first time around. My sister and I also made a list of epic equations from it. [Not eating vegetablesloss of leg])

Namiashi Raidō; Shiranui Genma; Gekkō Hayate; Hatake Kakashi; and Tenzō (Yamato). The ANBU that take care of Naruto. Well, it's mostly Raidō at the moment. And I like how Raidō uses Genjutsu based on touch; i.e. combining it with taijutsu. Thanks

Very nice story you've written here. I'll admit it wasn't quite what I was expecting. Typically these kind of set-ups result in Naruto becoming part of ANBU in some capacity, and I spent a lot of time wondering when that was finally going to happen. But in the end it didn't, and I think the story was better off for it.
Unfortunately, it's been a few months since I've read it, so I'm sorry to say that I don't have any worthwhile critique for you. I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed reading this, and that your atypical plot, canny dialogue, thorough characterizations and attention to canon detail and narrative style made it one of the more memorable and unique stories I've read in all my years on this site. Well done!
