(FORMERLY KNOWN AS TEAM EIGHT UNLEASHED) The Shinobi world is a harsh, unforgiving place. Akari Kita knows this. And yet, it's been her dream to become a Ninja, and impress her family, as well as the Clan she seems to inherit no skills from. The Kita Clan is renowned in the Village Hidden in the Leaves for their spectacular Taijutsu skills. And then there's Akari, who ends up pressed into the dirt no matter who she fights in Taijutsu. Despite this, she's determined to uphold the name of her Clan, and to be the best Shinobi she can be for her Village. But along the way, Akari discovers a tragic moment in her past that will change her view of the world forever. Everyone will be shocked, even a certain cool-headed silver-haired Jonin who just happens to take a liking to Akari. She'll face dangers and enemies, but she'll have her teammates with her. Will she survive this world, where one false move, one bit of bad information, can get you killed? Disclaimer: I DO NOT OWN NARUTO (though how freaking awesome would that be?) I only own Akari and whatever other characters aren't from the series. And I own the changes to the plot. But other than that, I OWN NOTHING.
