Konohagakure is no ordinary village. It is the home of elite ninjas hidden deep within a vast forest. It is from here that the greatest military forces emerge to defend their country.
This is where Naruto was raised, training from early childhood to join their ranks. Along with his classmates, he is tutored in jutsu, techniques that can manipulate mental or bodily energies into wondrous skills. If only he could calm down long enough to learn them.
The village also carries an horrific history. A terrible beast, known as the nine-tail fox, once crashed through its streets bent upon the destruction of all. Many people died in the defense of Konohagakure, including one of its most iconic heroes, Minato Namikaze the Fourth Hokage.
The massacre is never mentioned now, but it's within living memory. It all happened just twelve years ago; and Minato was killed containing the creature into the body of a newborn baby.
That infant was Naruto; and he is the only one who doesn't know it. This is the reason that the villagers hate him, as they secretly blame him for the deeds of the nine-tail fox. It was also the struggle which killed his parents.
Now it's all about to come out into the open. How will the young Naruto cope? And what will his rage and shock do to the seal keeping the beast inside?
No more spoilers. You will have to read the manga or watch the anime to find out!
