Honestly, looking at all these reviews you would think that the novel would be better but in reality this novel really just disapointed me. [Keep in mind that I didn't read that much.] Just with first impressions, the MC is not really likable (he was literally a bully in his childhood years, you would think that because he has his past memories he would be more matural but nope!) He's also pretty flat (though maybe this will change later on) and constantly makes a lot of Naruto references which gets... more>> pretty annoying, as if the author is trying to convince the reader that they truly know Naruto. It also feels pretty unrealistic (seriously, the first thing you do when you get chakra is to master the infamous 'Harem Jutsu?' Why?? - Not to mention it's the WARRING STATES PERIOD! I honestly can't believe he isn't dead by the beginning of the story...) An added bonus is that the translation quality isn't that nice either, I mean sure you can read it but it's the small grammatical mistakes that can really trip you up. <<less

I'll give it 4 stars for now. It's already different in the fact that the MC is near 50 at the start, and his reward system pays out just for being involved in events more than killing important figures. That gives it a bonus from me.


I've upped my rating to 5 starts. It's pretty good at this point. He's gotten involved in fights and not just to slaughter everyone, but because of the plot and his family. His reward system is actually very flexible in how it can be used,... more>> and he's already stopped focusing directly on battle stuff. Not to mention, he's still a loveable goof and it fun to read about his story :) <<less

Boring.... this idea was exciting at first but it falls short. The MC is basically a passerby in all the events. He hardly changes or brings out new outcomes. The narrative is bland and the characters are all one dimensional.

For a character that has actually lived in the world for nearly 50 years (way longer than he lived in the modern) world, he treats the world as a game. He hardly has deep affections, if he does, we are simply TOLD so but he doesn't really SHOW it.

The dialogue is... more>> bland. The action scenes are worse. Without being a Naruto fan, this is unreadable. The fight scenes are basically short paragraph summaries.

There is no build up or tension or new elements in the story. No, I'm not asking him to change the history as we know it in Naruto-verse, but creating oppositig concept in the MCs mind would have been great. E.g. building relationships with ancestors of certain clans or people then being put in a conflicting position to save them or let them die to maintain the history. Id even appreciate it if he used his power like Madara or black zetsu to watch things from the shadows and protect those he cared about.

Overall, the MC is just a standby character and the exposition is not that good. <<less

Its OK as of now, but if I had to pick on something it would be the MC's personality. He reincarnates in a Naruto world and he treats it as a game and he keeps making dumb references to his original world. YOU ARE LITERALLY IN A NARUTO WORLD! Act like it. I feel like he is not taking this world serious enough and everything is a joke to him and it's honestly annoying. This novel feels like a bad naruto fanic comedy.

This novel touches on something that I have immense appreciation of, that is, what it would actually be like to grow older than everyone around you. What it would be like to see the last person of your generation die from old age, while you still have hundreds of years to go.

You see so often MC's who live thousands of years and it doesn't even sweat then. In this story though, the MC actually feels his age. This is especially poignant when his granddaughter dies in her mid 80s and... more>> he looks around and realizes that it's not just everyone from his youth, but all the children he's seen grow up are also gone. At 120+ (remember, the average person in the Naruto warring states period died in their 40's) he's literally the age of an ancestor.

On to the story itself, this is the best 'Big 3' fan fiction I've read. The story isn't perfect, but it's really really good. The MC is an Uzumaki and is a generation older than Madara/1st Hokage. The system in the novel is strong but the MC trains to get stronger without it (only uses it for techniques that he couldn't learn.. Or for slice of life things that don't cost many points).

The characters feel like their manga counterparts. Obviously it's a lot different because there's an hokage-level Uzumaki throughout the story.

So Nagato doesn't go bad, Land of Whirlpools doesn't get destroyed, Naruto doesn't lose his mom, etc.


This MC does not become an arrogant jackass when he gets power. He doesn't become a hypocrite. He doesn't get a harem. He doesn't abandon companions. He doesn't use his power to arbitrarily force people to do what he wants.

Definitely give it a try. <<less

Very good Naruto fanfiction. There's not much to say about it other than that it feels unique and does alot of things right. You have:

  1. A MC that starts off very old (49 years old) and quickly assumes an elder-type position as everyone perceives him to be quite old.
  2. A very unique system that encourages the MC to stay as a semi-involved spectator (and not a blatant self-insert to replace Naruto like some of the other stories).
  3. Lore that is consistent (as far as I can tell) with the actual Naruto work.
  4. Proper power level benchmark that makes sense in the Naruto world. The original work had very vague power tiering, but this work sets a very reasonable standard.

First time reviewing, I only read fanfictions to pass time, a lot of them which are pretty repetitious. As for this, I only like it because MC is a bumbling idiot.

I read all the current raw chapters. One thing I notice is this translator is amazing as he is able to correctly tell the jokes in english. Pretty much in this story you have a MC who had a system forever that is really unique. Due to finding out how it works at 50yrs old, starts the comedy of this fic. You'll see the MC giving hilarious excuses for the things he does and realize the MC can be pretty s*upid at times. However, it does get a bit sad... more>> further on. Makes you think about the cost of semi-immortality. Over all this is a solid 4.8/5. One of the best fanfics for this fandom. <<less

Honestly I don't like reading fanfictions usually because they put me off but this one looks fine so far. Albeit sometimes it seems as if author forgot what he wrote previously but overall we can enjoy the reading.

Like other reviewers point out, the MC is a lovable idiot which makes for an enjoyable, casual read.

The bumbling MC may make the unfortunate impression that the story is badly written, frustrating or 's*upid'. However, it's not the case here.

The setting is very interesting for a Naruto fanfic; the warring states era before Konoha, where you can see the beginnings of the legendary alliance.

I hope that my review will convince you to give the story a go, instead of missing out on a fun, casual read because of stigmas around... more>> fanfics and s*upid MC's. <<less

Good on this author to make such relatively unusual choices for a Naruto fanfic. A 50 year old buffoon in the warring states era. Warring states era is not a big part of Naruto, so there's plenty of creative freedom.

Him being a buffoon is really the best part. It truly reads like a parody fanfic, and the carefree attitude I feel from both the MC and the author is really a breath of fresh air from the staleness of this site, and Naruto fanfiction.

... more>> Edit: c25 - 218

Still really funny. It's a fanboy comedic parody with a s*upid goofy parod. The author utilizes the goofy protagonist to troll the characters very well and there is a lot of honest to god funny original content and plotlines. Honestly peak fanfiction. Feels like a lot of people are extremely critical when the protagonist is not a high IQ harem seeking edgelord. It's a parody. You dont need to rage when the MC does not spend all his time pursuing powr <<less

I've got to say, I'm absolutely flabbergasted on how highly rated this novel is. I can only think that the creator of this fanfic decided to pay people to rate it 5 stars. I was only able to read the first 6 chapters, because it's absolutely horrible. It reeks of low quality effort.

This story is different from your typical Naruto fanfiction cause here it doesn't promote the protagonist to kill to increase his strength. Its a light read almost like a comic within the Naruto universe and a must read for everyone who loves a good comedy and yeah you can read this if you love adventure too.... but don't expect romance or any of that sort anywhere in this novel. giving this novel a 4.5/5 just cause the translator isn't doing his job daily cause last I checked there was nearly... more>> 650 chapters on MTL...@Translator Come on man it's a good novel so be regular with the updates. <<less

I have so much expectation with this because this novel have better rating than Reborn into Naruto World with Tenseigan. But this book just completely sh*t.


The MC was s*upid af. No wonder the MC couldn't figure out how the system works until fourty fckng eight years. The narratives were so bland. The author was too lazy to wrote an interesting fighting scene or how MC got learn a jutsu.


With how high this book rate is, Reborn into Naruto World with Tenseigan should get 4, 8 rating. So disappointed ☹️

I never expected this fanfic to be so good. Bettet than other original novel that I've read and enjoyed. So here's my 5 stars.

The MC, called Red-haired Shanks *cough* I mean Uzumaki Masahiko is so funny. I think he's one of my favorite MC.

I really like how the system works. I think it is unique. And the fights never are not long but still enjoyable.

I am reading the MTL version and despite of that I'm still enjoying it immensely.

It's... Alright. The main character does have a tendency to take everything lightly which is a huge mistake imo, naruto suffered horribly from this light hearted feeling when the backstory of the universe is grim, a fanfic could have adressed that, it's a shame this one didn't.

The system is alright, tho it does seems to be on the OP side since 38 chapters in and the MC is already nearing hokage level. It's nice that the system rewards the MC for witnessing historical moments or altering them instead of just... more>> transforming the MC into a mu*derhobo.

The pace of the story is rather pleasing, making proper use of timeskip, considering that the MC is basically immortal (as in he doesnt age) it's a delicate balance between rushing and stagnating and the novel does pretty well in this regard.

Now, for translation. It's good, quick and regular, so kudos on that, HOWEVER, I find that rather immoral to BEG your readers to put 5 stars review on novelupdates and guilt trip them when your unreasonable goal aren't met (4.5 stars on NU, really? Are you aware of how few novels ever got to this point?), rating isn't meant to make the novel that you translate more popular but to give an adequate score for reader to avoid garbage. I really think that NovelUpdate should take some actions against this sort of behavior, if it becomes a norm, the rating will be as garbage as on webnovels.

3/5 stars, it's interessing but not that good, maybe it gets better (or worst) later on, in which case I shall update my review. <<less

I never have much hope when it comes to fanfics, but this was a surprisingly fun read. I'm absolutely loving how playful the MC is at all times and I think my favourite light-hearted part of the novel is how the MC is constantly playing matchmaker with different characters in his head.

Well, I have binge read all the chapters in 2 days, and I i must say I quite enjoyed it.

Its been a rather long time since I got a good fanfiction like this one. The main character is strong, but not overpowered. There is also a nice mix of comedy and some action filled chapters. The world setting and the character development is also mostly reasonable and fun to read.

For the translation: Its actually pretty good. Of course there are some minor mistakes, but only a few.

Overall, I quite enjoyed... more>> the novel and I look forward to reading more of it in the future. <<less
