The Fourth Hokage sacrificed his own life to seal the demon inside the body of a joung boy... This young boy's name is Naruto Uzumaki. Naruto hopes one day he can become Hokage. Most people in the village dislike him and consider him a pest. Naruto causes havoc in order to get attention; he is ignored as if he were the demon fox itself. After failling the Genin exam, Naruto is tricked into stealing a scroll to become a Genin. He ends up in severe danger, but his teacher Iruka attempts to save him. However, it ends up being Naruto who saves Iruka from possible death, and for that, he is made into an official ninja where he begins his journey to become Hokage!
