| Crown of Shadows chapter 13 . 7/27/2012
So now the preliminary matches are over and the real event so going to happen soon.
The fights that were the same as the manga were alright. They were done quick and offered other peoples thoughts on what was going on.
Gaara vs. zaku was very similar to his battle with Shino in the original.
Shikamaru vs. Dosu was an interesting fight. Don't know how i feel about Shikamaru killing him. I know he's more focused and determined to save his friends but something about it just didn't feel right.
Hinata vs Kin. Good to see Hinata step up and move to the next round.
Neji vs. Lee was probably the best fight. Lee has been training for the chance to show to Neji that hardwork does pay off and showed what he is capable of.
Choji vs. Mizumi and Ino vs. Sakura were both good fights and its good to see that all of Team 10 will have a reason to keep training and not just Shikamaru.
Shino vs. Kankuro was a pretty even match with Shino just barely pulling out the victory.
Can't wait for the exams to see how the invasion plays out.

I thought there would've been more of an obstacle for the team during this stage in the exam. They finished the first test first and now there done this first as well. Since they had an extra scroll I thought they would run into one of the other teams at least.
Having said that the fights were well written and it was good to see Ino have her moment to shine and prove herself.
Ino learning telepathy this early is really effective and has certainly paid off during the exams. With a tactical genius like Shikamaru on their team and him not having to say out loud his plans really makes this team more of a force.

Great chapter. I can see how there will be changes between all members of Team 10.
Shikamaru especially since he has always been able to think so many moves ahead and it was his falling asleep on the job that nearly cost his friends their lives.

Can't wait to see whats happens on their first real misson.
Of course Choji would be the one to get through to Toshiyo.

Really like what your doing with team ten. Their first test and their subsequent methods of training are original and it's nice to just not see a retread of what Kakashi did with his team in the manga.
Team 10 has always been the most balanced and its great to see them come together and grow from when they first met to now.
You really understand the members of team 10, even secondary characters like their parents.

Good opening chapter. Nice to see all the members of team 10 getting the spotlight. Especially Ino, a character I never really cared for in the manga but in here she likable and believable and hopefully that continues in furthers chapters.

This story deserves more love. Honestly. Team 10 is one of my favorite teams, due in no small part to the awesomeness that is Shikamaru. I would've wanted more Sand Sibling time, but I guess there's plenty of room for that in the sequel. In any case, great job! This one's going to my favorites. :)

I really can't wait for more, I have read this three times and just love how well it is written. 3 So sequel please?

Very good story, excellent characterization. It is extremely interesting to see that Naruto remained the nexus-character, but team 10's improvement brings up everyone, and allows for opportunities for others. Kabuto is dead because Jiraya killed him, but it was Shika's actions that were responsible for getting him in place. Likewise Hiruzen lives as an advisor to tsunade due to the same. Neji seems to be improving at the cannon rate, but Hinata is improving drastically.
I think one of my favorite moments was when Shika realized that he could depend on Naruto and Hinata.

That was such a great story, well done I really loved it! I actually preferred the first half of the story when you were free to choose your own direction, before you were restricted by the chuunin exam and retrieval arc from cannon. I’ll definitely keep my eyes open for the sequel.

I'm reading this story as well as Rise of the Uchiha, so I found it hilarious when, after Temari beat Tenten, you accidentally referred to the Rookie 9 as the Konoha orphans. By the way, please update Rise of the Uchiha.
