it's well writen, it goes well with the world background of the naruto verse, but the author manage to give some unique spin on it, while I'm not against using time skip as a way to keep the reade engaged, I wish for him to describe some of the event during the so called skip, maybe use them as a way to set up future events. As for the main character, his decision making seem coherent and doesn't insult the reader intellegence, in summary, I give a 4 out... more>> of 5 for now cuz the real challenge will come when the story touch the main story line of naruto and naruto shippuden.

out of all the naruto fan fics I have seen on the internet this is one of the very few that has me reading beyond chapter 10.

i heartfully congratulate the author on doing a great job on getting this story interesting. One more thing thou, the fight scenes could use some more work, and the way masahiko get the point for the system are getting a bit to easy, gotta balance power levels otherwhise he will becomo too powerfull to have any meaningfull fight. <<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.

[Edit]

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

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.

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.

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

Enjoyable.

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.

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

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 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 [email protected] Come on man it's a good novel so be regular with the updates. <<less

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.
Spoiler

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

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

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.

Well, I think this one is one of the best naruto fan-fictions out there.

Nothing much to review. It is just that the MC reborns into the Naruto World around 15 years before the 1st hokage was born; he is equipped with a late discovered system. How late? It's just 48 years after the MC was born. Will he become old? Well, it is yes and no. Will he change the canons?Also, I have to say yes and no. Why? Because....... Thus, the story begins. 🤫

This story is an interesting take on the genre, where we follow the old man instead of a young MC. Combine the quick progression (that you expect from a "system" novel) with a truly intriguing story (mainly because it actually touches on some uncommon themes that at least I have never explored before) and then sprinkle some comic relief on top of that, all set in the Naruto universe, and you get Long Live The Hokage.

Story aside, the translation is great and new chapters are being translated at a solid... more>> pace. Don't let the fact that it is a fanfic scare you away. <<less

A good and light-hearted fanfiction that does not take itself too seriously.

It helps that the work follow the original plot closely from a different perspective instead of trying to make its own plot

How do I say this ?

I'm curently under the genjetsu of the otaku-kage and can' write anything bad about the novel

It's pretty funny at time and serious at times as well

... more>> The MC couldn't care less about the plot, contrary to what he constantly says and is always in the wise grandpa getup

You just can't hate him ! How could you ?! When he wrote a bl book about madara/hashirama/izuna, I can't... though that might be a secondary minor genjetsu !

Ps this is waddah yana, a loyal shinoby follower of our bulsh*t kage masahiko ! <<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

In my opinion, This is the only naruto fanfic deserving of 5 stars as of lately! The other fanfic, The MC is either transmigrated into an existing body (or naruto) or reborn during or close to the start of the show! This one, starts with a 49 year old MC (can you believe it? A f*ckin elder already.. Heck he's a senior elder of the uzamaki clan at the start of the story.. Already a high rank). So this MC won't be like the other MCs that'd be getting into... more>> romantic relations with any of the original casts (he's too old XD), instead he'll be like a senior figure, a respectable elder, an old master!!

Spoiler

Important and Spoiler!!

The Novel starts waaayyy before the show.. Like before hashirama and madara era. It started when hashirama just got married. So from here, you can see how much potential, how much tidbits the author can put in here before the naruto era start! From this you can tell that MC will be a legend comparable to hashirama and madara!! Plus !!SPOILER!!.. The MC can live long enough to witness or experience the naruto era because his system can reduce his age! But he does keep up his elderly visage! Case in point, This is a great novel with a lot of potential! Atleast at the chapter I'm currently at, everything is good!
