This story is a very unique take on a Naruko story.
I believe you need to change the main characters in your summary form NaruTO to NaruKO (yes she is a "character" from the Anime/Manga according to )
The other thing that's been bugging me is why Ten-Ten is listed as a main character in this story. You have it listed as an adventure/romance suggesting that the two characters listed in the summary will be the pairing, yet Ino and Sakura have more screen time than Ten-Ten. I know you personally aren't adverse to same couple relationships (the scene from the bar in Otafuku Gai right before Naruko walks in has a woman with another woman) so it is POSSIBLE that the pairing is Naruko/Ten-Ten but it seems unlikely at this point.
The other thing that's been bugging me is the power level of the ninja. In the latest chapters of the manga they are making new landmarks with every fight, and in cannon (at this point in time too) Lee can move faster than anyone can track (the only way the jounin Kakashi can keep up is with his sharingan.) So I suppose my point is, is that a bear with out charaka enhancements shouldn't be able to gut three ninja good enough to sneak up on Neji. Have you ever seen a bear in the wild? I have, stealthy is not a word I would EVER describe them with, nor fast. Don't get me wrong bears are faster than I can run, but not faster than a Ninja can run. To that end, the landslide scene you had Lee describe bothered me too. It seemed like Lee could outrun a few rocks at that point, you know? Not that he should have been able to save the poor dude, mind, I get why you have him die.
Other than the most recent chapters power level I love how they characters "level up" so to speak, the scene in Otafuku Gai showed exactly how powerful Naruko is compared to a normal person. (damn good fight scene too.)
Anyway Fem!Naruto fics are my second favorite type of Naruto fanfiction right after Videogame!Naruto types, so i will follow this story even though you haven't updated this fic in 10 months or updated your profile in 6. So heres a toast to hoping you're not dead!
Also I see that you write professionally, check out my profile to see some (what i think are,) cool fanfiction ideas, you might be able to make some of them work for you in the novel scene.

This whole thing is just amazing.
How the characters act, how they look, how they think, it's all just perfect.
This is by far one of THE best stories I've read, both online and in paperbacks.
Yeah, if I could favorite this more than once, I would.
Fav'd and following both the story and you.

There were some changes that I have never came across so there is not much to worry about in this aspect and right now there isn't much to complain about except for two things at least for me well three really one this should be marked under Naruko instead of Naruto, two there has been little actions between Naruko and Tenten, and three it's been over a year sense you last posted an update on such a wonderful story.

the Best Naruko story i've read so far, would really like to see an update

It has been a good story so far. I like how you have incorporated the more emotional aspects of the work they do and how the characters work through it. I also like how they have all been working hard to get to the level of skills that they are at. The new test you had in the previous chapter was interesting and I was wondering why Naruko didn't go to somebody with her concerns as to the level of information that Kabuto had on her. I mean only 3 or so people could have given away that information or they had to have stolen in from the files which is really concerning right? Also how are you incorporating TenTen as a main character? I'm mildly confused about how that will work out. I look forward to the next update- thank you for a good story to read.

The fight scene with the Ame nin was exciting, I especially liked how they used the mud as camouflage. Seeing the region-specific combat methods is definitely interesting.
Your characterisation of Gai/Lee/Neji is particularly good. I like their team dynamics and I'd actually like to see more interaction (particularly between Naruko and Neji just because they're on such a hilarious hair trigger). Also, I may have missed it in a time-skip or something but I'm curious to find out about Naruko's fighting style - has this been resolved?
Overall your use of creative license is phenomenal - I don't think I can read another carbon copy Chuunin exam, Team 7 or Sasuke/Naruto love match unless it's written very very well and yours has definitely blown some originality into the fandom IMHO.

since I don't have a fanfiction profile and I have to answer your poll here so my answer is rich detail is one of the most important parts of a story both In characters, plot, and everything in general you do a good job of adding a lot of detail to this story keep it up

update please! I like this story a lot and im sure a lot of people are getting frustrated at the lack of updates
| geekysoundcat chapter 8 . 5/2/2013
Wow, I just realised it's been over a year since you updated. Was going through my favourites list when I stumbled on this and remembered how much I liked it. Still hoping you'll update eventually. I only really give up after two years of no updates. Until then I will be patiently holding thumbs just in case.

Its an interesting story, but there are a quite a few things that dont add up.
I mean, ninja's couldn't find a child living on the streets for 10 years. That should have been child's play for them no matter how big a city. Unless your ninja are really incompetent.
Why didn't kakashi use his nin-dogs when they started tracking her, since they had a scent?
Also, this is pretty much an OC. besides parentage and being a jinchuriki, she has nothing in common with naruto. A interesting OC, but OC none the less
