wo and a half years later after Sasuke abandoned the village and the team, Naruto has returned to find that all his fellow ninja have been promoted in rank. Sakura is a medical ninja, Gaara has become the Kazekage, and Kakashi is still the same. He's both grown and fallen behind. Naruto wants to be the best ninja in the land.

He must fighter harder, train harder, and not be overcome by the weakening seal that holds the deadly Nine-tailed Fox inside.
