Twelve years ago, Konohagakure, a village hidden within a vast, dense forest was attacked by a monstrous nine-tailed beast known as Kurama. Desperate to halt the city’s destruction, the leader of the village (or Hokage) sacrificed his life, sealing the demon within baby Naruto Uzumaki. Now older, Naruto struggles to find his place within the village, but his dream to become the next great Hokage begins with him becoming a part of Team 7. The young ninja’s bonds of friendship will be put to the test as dark, sinister evils begin to move from the shadows into the light!
