4 years have passes since the faithful day of the Kyubbi's "sealing". And for those four years, Naruto has dealt with problems most children his age never will.
"Kill the demon brat!" fills the air as a mob chases Naruto, the young 4-year old as the boy leaves the orphanage. His blonde hair, shining like the sun in a short ponytail already. His sky blue eyes filled with fear for his life as he runs into one of "them."
"Just what do you think your doing!" shouts a woman at the men. As she moves Naruto behind her, all he can think is 'Not Again!' For some reason, ever since Naruto was born he would either have men trying to kill him or women holding him tightly.
"He's a innocent child that hasn't harmed even a fly. And you treat him like he was a demon. What is wrong with all of you!" the woman screams at them as a crowd of women gather around her, all holding weapons of women's righteous justice, but for some reason mainly mallets.
As this goes on, all little Naruto can think is, 'This ain't gonna be good.' And he was proven right when the men start to leave with fear in their eyes. After all, hell hath no fury like a woman's scorn, especially if she's your wife and she has a mallet.
Naruto looks up as a new fear fills his eyes as the women turn to him. He starts to back up until it happens. With a scream of "Kawaii!" he's grabbed and shoved between the breast of a Uchiha Mikoto all the while thinking, 'Not Again!'.
As ANBU and the Hokage get to the scene, all the men can't help but think 'Lucky Bastard.' As they think this, young Naruto starts to turn blue from lack of air, tears streaming down his eyes until the women grab his shirt and start a tug-o-war over him.
Seeing his chance, Naruto shouts out, "Run Away!" And with that, Naruto runs out of the village and into the forest. Unbeknown to all, powerful beings are watching this.
"Finally he leaves the village," a figure hidden in shadows says to itself. Blood red fur is revealed as it moves into the light. It's rabbit like ears and nine fox tails wave behind it as the Kyubbi no Kitsune reveals itself as it gazes into a pool in it's lair.
"I wonder how the boy while handle my gift," the demonic fox says to itself as it gazes down at the boy running into the forest surrounding Konoha.
Up in the many branches of heaven, powerful gods watch all the while thinking to themselves, 'I wonder what I can do with this,' many think all the while drawing plans on influencing the young Uzumaki.
In hell, a few demons watch and wonder how they could use this. A few beings in particular thinking of all the fun they could have, especially a certain trickster priest and his master.
Back in the forest, Uzumaki Naruto walks its paths listening to the sounds of nature. The songs the birds sing in harmony with the trees gives a relaxing feeling to him. That is until it happens.
The path he's on ends at a cliff, looking down it Naruto sees the forest continue. As Naruto goes to turn around, the ground he's on collapses under him. Falling down the side of a cliff, his only thought was 'At least I won't die by being hugged,' before he lost conscience.
Time passes as Naruto wakes up from his fall, the forest awake with the sun nearly above him. Looking around, a new path calls to him from where he stands. "What the, that wasn't their before," Naruto says to himself, a confused look spreading across his childish face.
Getting up, Naruto starts to walk down the path deeper into the forest. "Hmph, finally the little mortal heads there. All I can do know is wait before our fight," the Kyubbi says to itself before heading into its den to hibernate.
As Naruto heads into the woods, a aura starts to surround him. At times, sounds of fights fill the woods. Cries of "Ranma Saotome, because of you, I have seen hell!" with crashes. Or "Uncute tomboy!" being heard overhead after shouts of "Ranma no Baka!" fills the forest.
The very forest is filled with a aura of chaos and for some reason, Naruto loves it. 'What's with this forest? And why do I feel like I need to go into it?' Naruto thinks to himself as he walks the forest path.
As the path ends, Naruto sees a building in the distance surrounded by trees. 'What is that place doing here?' Naruto asks himself as he heads towards it. The outline of the building gets into focus as Naruto finally sees a dojo.
As he walks into it, a old sign that barely says 'Tendo School of Musabetsu Kakutō Ryū. Challengers use back door to challenge Ranma Saotome.' At that Naruto stops and asks himself, 'Who the hell is Ranma Saotome?'
Going into the dojo, a feeling of peace fills Naruto. As he looks around it, he catches flashes of emotions and feelings fill him as he stands there until he hears it.
A call in the back of his head, its voice, a man that has seen so much pain but filled with confidence, calls to him. "Head upstairs and into the Old Freak's room." That is what Naruto hears.
'Okay, I think I lost it. I'm hearing voices now,' Naruto thinks to himself until he hears it again. "You ain't hearing nuthin, now get into the Old Freak's room shrimp!" the voice says again.
At that Naruto can only shake his head and think, 'Okay, I'm really going nuts. Might as well shut the voice up.' And with that, Naruto heads up the stairs in the living room once he finds it and searches for the 'Old Freak's' room. As he searches, he hears the voice once again, "It's the one stuffed with panties and bras."
Naruto nods his head at that until, "Wait, what's a panty and bra?" At that, the voice can only say, "I'll let you know when you're their." Naruto can only shrug his shoulders at that. As Naruto goes through the upstairs, he finally comes across a room that has a sign that says "The Master" on it. Opening it, he finds it filled with piles of panties and bras, "Your in the room Gaki. Now, look for a box that's in their," voice says to him.
'Okay, why do I need some dumb box?' Naruto asks himself only to hear, "Because it has everything about the Art, you dumbass." Shaking his head at that, Naruto looks around until he finds a box. Opening it up, he finds it filled with books and notebooks with an old scroll at the top of them all.
Opening it up, Naruto starts to read the scroll unknowingly taking the first steps to reviving the lost school of Anything Goes Martial Arts.
'I am Grandmaster Happosai of Musabetsu Kakutō Ryū, one of the most powerful forms of martial arts. If you're reading this, then we're all dead from the Sailor Senshi creating their Crystal Tokyo. This box is filled with everything from a diet and lesson plans to become Grandmaster of our Art. Techniques that my two idiot students made to my true heir's skills and techniques, along with some Amazon Wu Shu and techniques Cologne-chan threw in here. To some simple magic and reiki training to every form of knowledge a practitioner of our Art needs to be a master along with our history. We leave you these to carry on are legacy.'
With that, Naruto stands their thinking to himself until, "What have you found Naruto-kun?" Screaming while jumping into the air, Naruto turns around only to see the Sandaime Hokage. "Ojii-san, what are you doing here?" Naruto asks.
At this, the old shinobi chuckles, "I was looking for you, Naruto-kun. Now what have you found here?" At this Naruto chuckles at him before responding, "I found a box full of stuff about something called martial arts, Ojii-san."
"Ah, taijutsu. Listen Naruto-kun, while taijutsu is needed, a true shinobi relies on his ninjutsu and genjutsu. Why don't we go back to the village now?" And with that, the venerable village leader leads Naruto away, only after Naruto grabs the box.
"So Naruto-kun, are you thinking about becoming a shinobi of Konoha?" the Sandaime asks. "Maybe, I just want to be strong," Naruto responds, his eyes looking back at all the times the men in the village attacking him.
Chuckling to himself, the Hokage says to the little boy walking next to him, "Then you should think about joining the Academy. They will teach you everything you need to become a strong shinobi. You could even become the strongest and earn the title of Hokage from me."
Expecting a response from that, Sarutobi looks down to Naruto only to see him carrying the box from the abandoned dojo with a thoughtful look on his face. "I see that you are interested in that taijutsu style Naruto-kun. But sadly, even if you have good taijutsu, ninjutsu and genjutsu is more important to a shinobi. It would be better to learn its basics but that is all you should," the Hokage says to him.
'After all, a fireball or a summon is more effective then any form of hand-to-hand fighting style out there. The only effective taijutsu is the Hyuga's Jyuken,' Sarutobi thinks to himself. He pauses for a second as he faintly here's hundreds of laughing voices.
They spend the rest of the time heading back to the village in silence, Naruto thinking about what the Hokage told him and his gut instinct to study the style he carries in his arms, and the Hokage keeping watch trying to find who laughed at him.
Grabbing Naruto by the shoulder when they reach an apartment building, Sarutobi guides him to a room while saying, "Naruto-kun, I decided that it would be better if you stayed in a apartment instead of the orphanage. After all, we can't have a future Hokage stay in the Orphanage anymore."
'Why do I have the feeling I don't have a choice in being a ninja,' Naruto thinks to himself. And with that he is guided into his new apartment and goes to sleep.
The night passes and dreams flow through the young Uzumaki. Dreams of a pig-tailed teenager fighting impossible odds, a Chinese youth throwing vast amounts of weapons out of his sleeves, and finally a tornado ripping through a winged man surrounded by a aura of fire with many such fights in between.
The dreams fade as Naruto awaken, only to here a call to study the contents of the box he has on his table. Looking up from his bed, Naruto finds a small breakfast made for him already. After eating and getting dressed, Naruto heads out into the village all the while remembering his desires and what the Hokage said about shinobi.
That all ends though when he comes across "him". Maito Gai, Konoha's Green Beast and Taijutsu specialists. In a training ground that has seen great damage stands the Green Beast, moving through a advanced kata for his Gouken Ryuu with a passion.
Naruto stands there, watching the man go through his art, until he hears the man say, "Are you going stand their all day or are you going to talk to me?" Now for many, Maito Gai is one of the most bizarre shinobi in the village. But when he looked at Naruto, he saw a drive to succeed, potential that lies untapped in every way. These drive the usual youth ranting man to take the 4-year old seriously.
Naruto stands there for a second until he slowly walks over to the Jounin. Looking up at the man, he can only ask, "What was that?" Gai, seeing a interest in his art, swells with pride before answering, "That was my Gouken Ryuu, one of the most powerful taijutsu styles in Konoha!"
At that, Naruto can only look down as he remembers the old Hokage's words from yesterday. "But the Hokage said that taijutsu isn't good, that ninjutsu and genjutsu was better." When Gai hears that, a frown covers his face before he mutters about fools to himself. Looking down at Naruto, with a serious look on his face, he tells him, "Ninjutsu and genjutsu is limited. But taijutsu knows no limits, you can spend your life learning it and never finish."
When Naruto hears that, he looks down as he says, "But why would you do that? Aren't their better things out there?" Gai smiles as he hears those questions and answers calmly, "To better and master yourself. A lot people don't know their own strength, and they stagnant with their abilities. But with taijutsu, there is always something more to learn, to master."
As Gai says this, the words echo in Naruto's ears. And the desire to train, to study, to master himself grows. And with that, Naruto looks up, determination flowing through him. "Thanks mister, I gotta go. I gotta start training!" and with that, Naruto turns around and runs back to his apartment to begin his training in the Musabetsu Kakutō Ryū.
In many different dimensions and on Earth, powerful being watch this moment. Seeing the revival of a powerful style, they can only watch what happens. But a few know of what the young boy has and plan on how they can use this for themselves.
But in a small part of heaven, a group of martial artist watches this. Proud in Naruto's choice to follow in their footsteps, but one thinks to himself, 'I hope the brat ain't going to have to deal with the shit I did.'
Oh, if only he didn't. If only he didn't.
But then again, a little chaos didn't hurt anybody, right?
The first official chapter of Untamed Shinobi is complete. Please review and tell me how I can improve on it.
You might be wondering what makes Naruto special, all I will say for now is that their won't be a Kyuubi enhanced Naruto at all. A strong Naruto with a passion for training like Ranma, but no demonic powers for him.
