With the burning will of Fire in his heart, he runs towards his dreams and his bonds!!
Over 2 years have passed, and Naruto is back to Konoha. His growth definitely deserves to be taken a look at. "I never take back my words...". He didn't lie when he said those words to Sakura. His severe training with Jiraiya earned him a new jutsu, plus he also learned how to counter genjutsu and became more skilled with shurikenjutsu and the likes, strengthening the basis of his abilities as a shinobi. Naruto is no longer a reckless ninja who fights blindly against the enemy. With his inborn "unlikeliness" and "willpower", and with the "strength" he gained from training, he will charge through his nindou (=ninja way/ethics/values, ndt) like a hurricane!!
(balloons: "I'm going to become Hokage too one day! The Kazekage will have to return me this favor.")
The self-confidence reflected in his eyes stems from his endless training. He won't stop pursuing his dreams!!
(balloons: "I'll definitely steal Sasuke back from him!"
If that's what is needed to save his comrades and friends, Naruto can become stronger than anyone else.
Surprise attack! He can still be unlikely.
(balloons: "That jutsu is nothing special, Konohamaru! Now look! I'll show you my brand-new and improved erotic ninjutsu!! Here we gooo!!")
The erotic ninjutsu praised by Jiraiya is powered up (!?) too. His teacher's influence is evident even outside of training.
The sorrow of the ones who harbor a "bijuu" inside of their body....
"Jinchuuriki" is the name given to the ones who have a "bijuu" sealed inside their body. The way people treat them is not very different from village to village. In his childhood Naruto was treated as a "menace" to the village and experienced an unbearable loneliness, that is why he can understand very well Gaara's suffering. The Leaf or the Sand makes no difference to him: he wishes nothing but to save Gaara from the darkness and share his happiness with him. Just like his teacher Iruka saved him in the past.
(balloons: "The spirit of the Kyuubi is sealed inside my body.")
When he finds out the reason why Akatsuki is after them, he's consumed with rage!!
The fate of a "jinchuuriki" and the "bijuu" sealed inside of him is to confront each other for eternity...!!
[The same suffering]
When Naruto discovered that Gaara had become Kazekage, he rejoiced with all his heart. When he had to face his death, he shed bitter tears as if it was his own demise. Only "jinchuuriki" can truly understand other "jinchuuriki". Only people who have spent their life carrying such a heavy burden can share their sorrows and joys with each other.
(balloons: "Shut up!!!")
Gaara's death feels as painful as if it were his own.
Friendship that knows no bounds can open the doors to a new future.
Naruto ran to save Gaara, and before long, many other comrades ran to his side, both from the Leaf and the Sand. Naruto's "miraculous power" bonds people together. He can become friends with anyone, even the ones that used to be fierce enemies. His unprejudiced friendship goes beyond national borders and spreads out large, deep, bringing hope to people. Naruto has known "loneliness", thus he can understand the importance of "bonds" more than anyone else: that is why he can move other people's hearts.
(balloons: "You gave us quite a trouble...!")
The warmth coming from Naruto reminds more of a family's than a friend's. His selfless kindness soaks into one's heart.
"Shinobi World War", then the "Crush of the Leaf"... The "Leaf" and the "Sand" have repeatedly fought each other. But now both parties can be liberated from their hostile ties and head towards a new future. As long as Naruto's "miraculous power" lights up the path they will have to walk.
(balloons: "Yes... Now I can clearly understand baachan's feelings!")
Chiyo's earnest wish will be granted, as long as Naruto and Gaara live...!!
He will put everything on the line to protect his bonds!!
The "new team Kakashi" is formed, but Naruto rejects their new teammate Sai because he firmly believes Sasuke to be the only possible third member. "Teamwork is important". Yes, he knows that. But still, he cannot possibly accept as a member of "team Kakashi" someone like Sai, who slights teammates and insults Sasuke...!!
The success of a mission depends on teamwork. They must dismiss their hesitations and just look at what's in front of them...!!
(balloons: "I will do anything to save that friend.")
"For my friend". This wholehearted intent brings Naruto to cooperate with Sai.
He is restless. He is cornered. Just a little more time and Orochimaru would complete his reincarnation. His friend is so close that he can almost touch him. Naruto reaches for the Kyuubi's power...
His "power" still isn't enough to save Sasuke! This thought makes him impatient...!!
(balloons: "I'll definitely bring Sasuke back! It's my promise of a lifetime!!")
He made a "promise" 3 years ago, and he isn't going to break it!!
In his training with Jiraiya Naruto has learned to control the Kyuubi's strength. But such a power is too huge to be so easily dominated...
His self collapses and he destroys anyone he sees.
At this stage he transcends shinobi boundaries. With a super high-density chakra cannon he turns to ashes anything that's in front of his eyes.
The power of the Kyuubi's fourth tail is a double-edged sword that even hurts his own body and the people he is supposed to protect. After hearing the truth from Yamato, Naruto decides that he won't use that power anymore. To protect the ones he cares for, he will believe in his own chakra, that is in fact as resilient as to be able to endure the Kyuubi's.
(balloons: "Get lost...!")
The Kyuubi tries to break the seal again, but Naruto stops it of his own will.
Unbreakable "feelings" burn in his heart....
[A voice that cannot reach]
Sasuke, whom he longed to meet again, is there in front of his eyes...!! But his heart is distant, even more than it was until now. Yet Naruto believes that somewhere deep in his heart Sasuke still cares for his friends; that he, the one who left him alive in the Valley of the End, still hasn't severed his "bond" with them. Nevertheless, Sasuke cold-heartedly points his sword at Naruto. Is it too late...!? He shakes off the resignation flitting through his mind and summons his fighting spirit. He cannot give up. He has to fulfill the promise!!
As if to highlight the distance between them, Sasuke stands far off.
Sasuke's eyes are even colder than before. His blade attacks Naruto without hesitation!!
"I will never give up".... A "possibility" born from his indomitable nindou.
Sasuke's rescue was a failure. Naruto was shown the difference in their abilities, plus his longstanding feelings were completely rejected. But thanks to the words of his teammates he stands up again. The power gap can be filled. If his voice doesn't reach, he can just step closer. Most importantly, he has friends ready to join forces with him. His fighting spirit burning, Naruto once again runs with his teammates!! Because he believes that "not giving up" is the only means to save Sasuke....
(balloons: "I'm here too! I'll become strong with you!!")
Naruto is able to stand up over and over again because he has friends that run with him.
(balloons: "Well, just watch him and see yourself. He's completely different than before!")
His eyes look straight ahead, unwavering!!
A portion of the "legend" is visible on his back....
The "Kagebunshin training method" devised by Kakashi perfectly suits Naruto's huge amount of chakra. He manages to achieve "property modification" in only two days, while it normally requires years of practice.
Naruto trains to master a new jutsu that even Yondaime couldn't bring to completion!!
The presence of a good rival can become a driving force to accelerate one's growth. The existence of Sasuke, the genius boy always in front of Naruto, adds "zeal" to his training! And it eventually makes his talent bloom...!!
(balloons: "I gotta catch up with that Sasuke!!")
It's because Sasuke exists that Naruto can become stronger.
[A shinobi that can surpass the Fourth Hokage]
"Fuuton - Rasenshuriken", the still incomplete ultimate ninjutsu that nobody has ever used. Not even Yondaime Hokage could complete this jutsu, but Naruto was able to polish it up and use it in an actual fight...!! The Academy's loser is about to evolve into a shinobi that will become the main force of the next era!!
"Kagebunshin no Jutsu", which can store a person's experience data, is put to practical use right away.
(balloons: "Take this!")
The "spiral" (rasen, ndt) created by the Fourth is passed on to his son and now swirls like a storm!!
