(APPLAUDES) I really like what you did even in actual anime/manga itatchi revenge basically blew up in his face for how smart he was he couldn't see consequences of his actions with this story basically itatchi revenge blew up in his face unknowingly since this sasuke didn't care about his clan.

Interesting, I really like this idea you have going so far, no bashing and it’s refreshing.

I'm not sure if you still check this account at all, but I've got to say you have something wonderful here. My regrets are only two: That there isn't more of it and that I didn't read it sooner.
I came for the Sasuke and stayed for the conspiracy. You do some great things with Sasuke, be it talking the powers-that-be into putting him on Team 8 or giving some terrifying snapshots of the Wave mission (Kiba the MVP!) or Sasuke's chat with Hinata about their families having such toxic viewpoints and expectations.
But even the best Sasuke scene pales in comparison to the spy thriller you have crafted. It's so well done that I have to question why we didn't get any of this in the original manga. They're ninjas. A spy game should be right up their alley, and asking the question of how much damage Mizuki has done is exactly the kind of question the village leadership should be asking.
It only follows that someone like Mizuki would be sabotaging the curriculum or that other powers would have their hooks in the village if his infiltration went undetected for so long. I just love that you tugged on this one little thread and spun it out into a complex web of conspiracies, investigations and purges. You don't sugarcoat anything here. Choza makes the hard choices, and Sarutobi gets called out in a way he deserves. I like the guy as a person, but the manga never really laid into him for his obvious shortcomings as a leader. He was too sentimental and too quick to fold. He may be a mighty warrior who knows a hundred and one tricks, but he doesn't seem to be a very effective leader, judging from how poorly he handled the Hyuuga and Uchiha disasters.
All in all, I love this story. Of course, I understand that we all move on from this sort of thing eventually, so I can't blame you for letting chapter 9 be the final installment.
I am grateful that you gave us 9 great chapters of a spy thriller with a side of interesting characterization. You should be proud of this.

I read through the whole thing in a setting, nearly forgot to review, but man! That’s some awesome story! I’d really like if you could consider picking up on this in the near future! (I’m not from an English speaking country, please forgive my mistakes).

I disagree with a lot of the choices you made here but it was interesting anyway.

Yeah this goes back to fact that the sound ninjas were either bunch yes men or women or ruled by fear that just tell snake what he wants to hear.

I can't imagine the words 'teamwork' between kiba naru and Saku. Really should've sent them back Kakashi...

Ch3 proves just how much of a necessity edgy!Sasuke is to Naruto and Konoha. Bravo!
| Mike chapter 1 . 2/2/2018
Quite well done, a pity it was abandoned.
Also, I'd say 'or Uchiha Sasuke and Rational Thinking' would sum it well. ;)
May also say that this predicts a general loss of competence we now see around us in real life...

Noooooo! I wanted Kakashi to be his teacher

I know you haven't updated in years, but I'd like to say Kiba is the true hero of this story what a brave boy who didn't deserve nothin'

Poor Sasuke. I can see how the constant sucking-up would get annoying.
