      Extremely boring and irritating Fan-fiction. I`ve read up to chapter 36 where nothing has happened, so many chapters are about "Muh Feelings" and its extremely Americanized. This isn`t a Naruto Fanfic, this is an "American we live in a wonderful 1st world country and we respeck women and feelings" novel wrapped in a Naruto fantasy world. What a waste of time.

      This is one of the best fanfics I read.

      Love how realistic it gets, you can see author actually putting effort in writing story and building world instead of just op fanfic where MC blitzes through every problem with brute strength.

      Only thing I dislike is lifelines and system voice. Those just don't sit well with me.

      anything else is done right. Interactions are fun, characters are actualy interesting, development is not rushed.

      It's an interesting fanfic, but if I had to say something that bothers me a little is that the MC has a bit too many themes going on at the same time, he's a super genius with relationship issues, he's also read all of Naruto, but doesn't really like it (until this point it was fine), then as we go deeper into his past we find out he had a messy relationship with his dead parents and feels guilty for the failed marriage of his uncle and aunt who took him in and a strong bond with his cousins, who have their own drama going on, suddenly it's revealed that he was betrayed (which felt a little forced because of the betrayer supposedly having been bidding his time since they were kids because) resulting in a rivalry against a super corporation, there's also a suicidal friend who was fooled by his ex for 17 years into paying for a kid that wasn't his and the classical "black man in America" package. Get what I mean? This guy has a super dense backstory even before entering the world of Naruto. It's not necessarily bad or anything, but I don't really care about his surprisingly dramatic past as much as his life after reincarnation, so having so much baggage to deal with feels a bit both

      PS: Despite being over the top his character isn't THAT OP or flawless, the author also makes sure to use everything he puts in the backstory... so really it's more of a question about preference

      This novel is one of the best fanfics I've ever read, no joke. But I like the author even more. He's humble, polite, and responds as much as he can. You can tell he's actually taking our advice in order to improve

      This story really rewards patience, which is why most negative reviews are by those who've barely started reading and haven't even given it a chance. The ones with no taste whatsoever

      The beginning starts off a little slow, but that's natural. The author takes his time, does real world building, the characters aren't just there for background. They feel real, relatable, and have true everyday struggles like the rest of us

      It's really touched upon in the chapters starting at 40 (That's when things get really deep and shifted into higher gear)

      The plot is also great, it's plain as day he's planned this entire story out from beginning to end. Every event and/or action has a deeper meaning, making the mystery even better. It's very... Naruto-like!

      The MC is also interesting, his backstory before he came to the Naruto world is explored and correlates to the current world he's in

      He doesn't just give you all the answers right away like in some typical, crappy Isekai story. This is Isekai DONE RIGHT!

      So far, like the story, pretty good, not super cliche backstories, and some compelling motivations. Some scenes may come off as preachy, but it's still necessary for the story, so I'll give it a pass. I love the experimentation parts where he screws around with concepts.

       After every chapter, I keep loving this fanfic more and more.

      1. It's quite different and unique, in a certain way, how the MC got in the NarutoVerse.
      2. The author uses a creative way to strengthen his protagonist. I Gotta say I've never seen something similar in any other fanfic. 
      3. There's a bit of mystery that draws pretty well my curiosity.
      4. The Characters seem alive, there's personality and conflict in every single one. I really do love it when there're philosophical  discussions or conversations about their relationships
      5. One thing that I really do appreciate and very few authors do in isekais. There're things from before the isekai that impacts the MC. He was someone before all this, and it shaped how he is nowadays. He did not start to exist just when he comes to naruto.    

      Overall... I'm loving it, keep going!

      I'm really surprised how much of a positive reviews there is. Cause I find this novel pretty bad.

      It started kinda meh, then gotten bit better, then it became your usual trashy translation of trashy ranobe, then it became boring translation of complete trash ranobe.

      In the end I just tried skipping chapters, because they were so bad, but it only got worse, so I'm out.

      Awesome premise, but awful novel.

      STRAIGHT FIRE 🔥🔥🔥🔥! One of the best Fanfics ever, HANDS DOWN! Be patient, stick around, I promise you won't regret it!

      Does it start off a little rough? Of course it does, just as with any beginning writer.

      Does it get better? YES, and quickly! The author does some well placed world-building before things get into high gear in the 40s chapters. Things only get better from then on

      Author takes advice, learns, adapts, and continues to look for the best writing style we can enjoy. Plus, the author is such a nice guy, humble and polite, responds to us whenever he can despite his busy schedule. Too positive of a person to be attacked by trolls who can't even read.

      Seriously, read this! You'll have a great time!

      Status: 0. prologue

      Literal trash fire. Starts with 4 chapters of exposition dump where two characters just talk at each other and feel flatter than the XY plane. The best character was a completely unimportant side character that had about 6 lines in the prologue (make of that what you will). 

      This might get better at some indiscriminate point in the future, but it is just painful with all the tropes already present in just a prologue and an exposition dump. I had given this a try since it came up as recommended, but I noped out fairly quickly.

      The biggest problem I had was the use of vague language to establish an air of "mystery" where all it indicates is poor narrative design (aka. TVTropes "You Know the One" or CinemaSins "Pronoun Game"). This was what made me stop reading further since any writing that has this is utterly meaningless (with no exceptions coming to mind of it being executed as a benefit to the narrative).

      More power to the people who can look past that and enjoy it, but for someone looking for a competent story this isn't it.
