Despite the sometimes cliche of having Naruto graduate as the dead last of the Academy while spending years hiding her true level of skill, the fic quickly distinguishes itself through good writing, lovely characterization, and an ultimately enjoyable spin on older content.
Several things carry over, such as the overarching plot of the canon series. Team Seven still goes to wave. The chuunin exam will still happen. But there are twists of new ideas within the old, such as the circumstances of Gatou's death and significant political ramifications.
Unlike many fics where the Naruto who has hidden skills is secretly super powered, all characters show a level of skill that is believable considering age and actual experience. No secret six year old ANBU members here.
