Great, but wordy
First off—I love this. The idea is so well-executed and it's just plain awesome with cheese. I love everything about it—everything except that.... ....it could stand to be less verbose. The chapters are insanely long. I can read the 5th harry potter book in 8 hours, but it had chapter breaks where I knew where I left off. This is so wordy I wanted to stop mid-chapter and I often lost my place mid-page and had to backtrack. The code names were a bit of an issue. Yes, the author was nice enough to post them at the start few every chapter, but the chapters are so long that you have to scroll a LOT to get back to the top and be reminded who's who (which you have to do whenever someone who's not in Hakumei has the POV), which was one of the above reasons I lost my place a lot. Overall, it's amazing, but I recommend setting aside blocks of time to read it and writing the code-names down the a card or something so you don't have to scroll so much. Also, if you need to leave your computer for even a second find a way to get right back where you were or you'll have to re-read several paragraphs to find it again. Again, amazing, but a little too wall-of-text sometimes.
- Comments: There are a lot of Danzo-as-Hokage fics out there, but this one takes place in part one, before the main Naruto story begins. What really gets you into it is the character development. It also shows how hard it is for kids to survive without parents, which some fics forget to mention. The author also manages to save some fan favorite characters, Haku and Kimmimaro in some cute ways.
- Jomlos: HECK, the Character Development alone worth to be read. For one, Sakura AIN'T a Fan Girl in this story, and things are much crazier, heartwarming, yet can be more intriguing at different scenes. Also, Itachi is genuine likable brother and Zabuza is a sympathetic so-unfunny-its-funny psycho blood knight. Pretty good, very recommended, Wiki Magic please elaborate!
- REV 6 Pilot: On my view, the author tramples over several interesting parts and just about throws the character development on the reader's face. It feels too forced to be enjoyable.
- USA Bobcat: I enjoyed it, but Your Mileage May Vary
