A terrible ritual. Human sacrifices. An isolated youth. The mysterious powers of Kekkei Genkai.
The young ｢Kana｣ alone survives it, freed from years of captivity to awaken in the ritual's aftermath and left with precious little more than questions.
Why her? What happened? Just... everything?
But now, she has acquired the power to seek out answers. Answers from the violent, cruel, lonely, and war-torn world around her. A long and twisting journey begins with the backdrop the Second Shinobi World War!
- Slice of Life is here for a reason. Things change pace at varying speed, but I'm in this for the long haul. Please Enjoy!
Some Important Notes: (Wall of Text which you might find relevant)
- This series is a Naruto Fanfic, so it already targets a somewhat niche audience. It'll likely be more fun to have some familiarity with the Naruto world. That said, this is just my indulgence, so I'd be very pleased if you got some enjoyment out of it regardless.
- This is Not Isekai, it's a sort of AU (because it's an earlier time period) with a few added OCs (because it's free real estate)
- Doubtless some elements will be awkward/cringe when expressed in English. I feel your pain.
- I do not own Naruto. This is purely a derivative work.
- Think of this as a drafted version. I proofread a lot to keep up the quality, but I always seem to miss something. If you find grammatical or formatting errors, please let me know (Comment?) and I'll fix it.
- As for Tagging: It's currently accurate, but I'll add more if they get relevant. I haven't finished writing, after all.
- As for Content Warnings: I honestly don't know what all will be there yet, but I have a lot of ideas so I included it all to be safe. Fair Warning. Intended audience is ~17/18+ so I'm just following the guidelines.
- No official release schedule since I work full-time and you never know. This may change.
- Multi-genre, a little bit of all the things I like. More may come.
- I do not own the Cover art, I only edited overlays for it.

A great story, the author does an incredible job showing how the main character is learning and discovering the world; along with her new powers, and does a good job showing how other characters react to her. There are no spelling or grammatical errors as far as I can see, nor any obvious plot-holes. Wonderful work, and I hope you continue writing it for some time to come!
The world of naruto except The characters actually make sense.
Not especially slow or fast in pace, and the character actions are actually based in logic. The dialog makes sense, and the character interactions are realistic (as realistic as a bunch of super powered ninjas can be) without being boring. Also, another thing, the main character is currently a child, do not expect lewds for a long time, or at all. Also the main character is OP, but not especially so, has abilities but not the knowledge to use them.
ALSO READ THE TAGS, theyre there for a reason.
Also when there isn't combat, or depressing stuff. There's Fluff. A lot of fluff. All in all pretty good.
I don't know the art of bootlicking so I'll refrain from detailed praises🤣
it's great, just great☺️try licking- I mean reading 😃
Slow paced at first, but the fun type of slow not boring😊
Second best Naruto fanfic on this site (the first one being Goddess of Ice). Instead of hardcore training and flashy jutsus, you get a slow burn, emotional fanfic that hits you right in the feel. The lack of progress is a bit grating, but it's justifiable for the well-thought-out and gradual character development.
I've never written a review before so i'll keep it short but I really like this story and while I havn't read many this is definitely my favourite Naruto Fanfic so far. So I'm excited to see where this goes and keep up the good work.
it's a slow burn but also very well written. Usually they get boring after tens of chapters, not the case here so far. The characters are interesting. The MC monologue and feelings are also interesting but very mature considering her age.
Give it a shot if you can handle slow stories.
(One of the best Naruto fanfics out there for sure)
This is by far my favourite fiction I’ve read. I’ll segment my review like I do with other reviews: into Plot, World, Characters and Combat. Because I enjoy the author’s writing style, I will also add a section on it as well. My reviews tend to be long, but I usually only review stories I believe warrant a long review, meaning I think this story is really special.
I consider the plot to be among the most unpredictable among those I’ve read. Normally distancing yourself from common ideas in stories is a bad thing. This is because stereotypes in stories exist because they work, and straying from them usually forces the plot in an awkward direction. I believe you’ll be pleasantly surprised by the directions the author takes the story, and those of you reading Naruto fan-fiction will understand where this deviates from the norm. In the case of this story, which is well-crafted and does not feel rushed at all, I would say the plot is balanced with light and dark themes together with the occasional surprise which you can’t predict. A definite delight to read, in my opinion, and an exceedingly rare delight to find.
I think the Naruto World is the best world to have a fan-fiction in, and therefore the inherent bias is prevalent in my answer. The world is inherently very dark, and the author has taken liberty to remind us of this in this story. I think the characters are accurately depicted thus far, and the author has a definite respect for the Naruto universe in general. I believe this respect translates to a very coherent and believable Naruto world, which is amazing in my opinion.
The main character of this series is perhaps the most interesting character I have ever read in any story ever. This is likely due to my inexperience in the authors writing style, which definitely amplifies the complexity of their character. The characters actions are rarely completely understood, or we can’t find it until we understand something else. I find myself referring to previous chapters to understand the current main character with more detail. I believe this complex characterization is what drives the story forward.
This isn’t a fighting story. Fights appear and are realized within instants or short amounts of time, which is expected in a realistic rendition of the Naruto World. I am not expecting to be blown away by the combat within this fiction, as it is not a focus of this fiction.
Writing style: 9/10
This fiction is an introspection fiction. There are many things that are improved by writing in this style, but also some caveats. I think characters and the world are vastly improved through introspection. Hearing descriptions of people and objects in the world through introspection adds more meaning to them, which improves the complexity of a world even if it is small. The main benefit (at least the benefit I see from introspection) is also a drawback. Sometimes it feels like nothing is happening in the story because several chapters have occurred without a change in scenery. I would argue that the benefit to the story outweighs this drawback. I am also incredibly biased towards the authors writing style. I would read the first ten chapters and decide for yourself whether you like the writing style or not.
I think this story is worth it to read as a story and an eventual MUST-READ as a Naruto fan fiction. The plot, world, characters and writing style make this story a delight to read, and the combat isn’t really important for this kind of story and the rating is more to honestly market the story to Naruto combat enthusiasts.
I dislike Naruto the Anime. Well not dislike so much but failed to find the fascination with it. Likely because I didn't see the initial story line; that and from what I have seen the animation is not of what you would call the highest quality, though I must admit I have seen a few episodes that were actually interesting. Don't get me started on Mecha-Naruto, swear that was stolen from Inspector Gadjit. Not dissing those that like it. Just saying that's not my cup of tea. (Cowboy Beebop for the win!)
This story is fascinating, I find it clever and a mystery to be unraveled. Eighty chapters in and there is still mystery to be unraveled. A sad girl with little social skills but quite capable as a Shinobu learns her place after being the subject of experiments and apparently a kidnapping. She learns her place in the world in time (and still is) at this point in the story.
I recommend it, even if you're not a Naruto fan. This is not a Naruto story. It is a story set in the Naruto universe which I enjoy.
Currently, I have caught up to the chapters. The other reviewers have summarize the good points of the novel, so I'm just here to ramble about what I don't like and why I shouldn't be fcking complaining why I don't like it.
1. The beginning chapters are slow. It takes the MC 5 chapters to finally decide to leave after doing a whole bunch of sht and constantly self-reflecting. Which was hella boring.
Why I shouldn't complain: It built character. Showed how the MC thinks, what she thought to of her situation, and her personality to be cautious.
2. Romance, doko? (TL: Where) it's be 83 chapters!?
Why I shouldn't complain: Author said they are building the story around the eventual romance, and there would be quite a bit of fluff chapters. With their track record of good build up, I'm patiently waiting
