Sixteen years ago, a mysterious masked ninja unleashed a powerful creature known as the Nine-Tailed Fox on the Hidden Leaf Village, Konoha, killing many people. In response, the leader of Konoha’s ninja forces, the Fourth Hokage, Minato Namikaze, and his wife Kushina Uzumaki, imprison the fox inside their newborn son, Naruto Uzumaki. With the Tailed Beast sealed, things continued as normal. However, in the present day, peace ends when a group of ninja called the Akatsuki attack Konoha under the guidance of Tobi, a mysterious, masked man who was behind Nine-Tailed Fox’s rampage years ago and now intends on executing his plan to rule the world. However, Naruto and Sakura are brought in time to see a world where Naruto’s parents are alive while Sakura’s parents are dead.
