{KINDLE} ⚟ The Waves Arisen ¿ eBook or E-pub free

The Waves Arisen is to me one of, if not THE best Naruto story ever written It does suffer from some fairly hefty flaws, but the good partsthan make up for it and really cement it as one of the all time greats.The downsides are pretty recognizable, as this story suffers from some of the most common flaws that rationalist stories are known for among critics The Hokage starts out by name dropping game theory for no real reason, though I ll admit that the blend of modern aspects with feud The Waves Arisen is to me one of, if not THE best Naruto story ever written It does suffer from some fairly

that rationalist stories are known for among critics The Hokage starts out by name dropping game theory for no real reason, though I ll admit that the blend of modern aspects with feudal Japan does make for a really neat setting Several overly long explanations later, the main character goes on to do what rationalist characters do best and starts to munchkin the setting by calculating how much chakra is used up by various techniques Huh Look, I get that the story is written for a very specific audience, but the geekery and number crunching does have to serve an actual point As it is, the author writes several chapters with extended scenes in which Naruto does nothing but solve math problems It s not interesting to read, and it serves no real purpose to the story the only payoff happens when Naruto exploits a technique in a way that s so obvious that literally any other ninja could have done the same even without having any technical background, making all of the earlier setup scenes completely pointless This also highlights the problem of having only one main character who is allowed to figure things out, while everyone else is designated NPC.But, that about sums it up for the story s problems Sure, there is quite a bit of canon bashing, but occasionally it s pretty funny and I know some people really enjoy it And the good parts of the storythan make up for the issues For one thing, the pacing is AMAZING I have never before read a story where the plot goes along at such a breakneck pace, keeping the reader riveted at every step along the way Part of this is due to the fact that the author is fantastically skilled at provoking reactions by using show, not tell The ending to chapter 17 had me choking up in a way that few stories ever managed, rational or otherwise, and it did it with but a few words Fantastic.The setting is also really interesting and immersive The characters are likable and have enough depth, and the story beautifully tackles the problem of having a ridiculous overpowered protagonist by making him a believable person with real flaws, and then placing him in a setting that is uniquely harsh and sometimes hilariously unforgiving The end result is truly something to behold Started out well, but hiccuped a lot in the last few chapters when the author s sense of power scaling completely fell apart They re also pretty far from canon in a power level sense in other areas, in a way that can be jarring in one case, two characters with no significant departures from the actual story fight and the results are dramatically different Reasonably entertaining pseudo rationalfic, which recognizes like many other Naruto fics that shadow clones are an inherently broken Started out well, but hiccuped a lot in the last few

pace I d give this book 3.5 stars My expectations going in were that this would be a HMPOR like book set in the world of Naruto I sort of got what I wanted.The protagonist is indeed rational and it s fun exploring the world of shinobi through the lens of such a protagonist Seeing certain ideas dissected and simple algebra applied to solve problems related to fights was interesting However, I felt like this novel massively overpowered the main characters and Naruto felt a little like a Gary Sue I I d give this book 3.5 stars My expectations going in were that this would be a HMPOR like book set

short, I enjoyed the exploration of the world, but the characters didn t feel properly developed and the problems were overcome a little too easily for my liking.Also, I d like to note that I watched Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden, so I had an idea about some of the things the author revealed I think that it s a really good idea to first watch those two anime in full and then if you wanted a fun exploration of the world, read this book Don t do it the other way around because too many important reveals are tossed out casually in the book 3.6 stars I liked this story as a rational fiction The story isn t that amusing, there isn t much character development or interesting interactions But it was enjoyable enough that kept me reading at a fast pace There are some unique scenes that I enjoyed, but there were parts that I didn t like, even parts that I hated.But I rated this book as a rational fiction I ve read HPMoR and this book definitely reminds me of it, but HPMoR was mucheducational than the Waves Arisen, even if3.6 stars I liked this story as a rational fiction The story isn t that amusing, there isn t much character development or interesting interactions But it

does get to relative omnipotence with ease, which I didn t like at all, hide spoiler but it was better than a lot of other so called rational fictions out there.So I recommend it to people who like a rational protagonist Just incredible, I couldn t have asked forIt over delivered on everything. This was good It could ve beenfleshed out I wish there wasfocus on character development and slower plot progression Even so, this was good. One of the best ratfics I ve read so far. Has some really neat ideas for battles and power exploits, while still having credible threats to keep tension up I ve never seen a story where Shadow Clones work like this, and it did a good job of exploring the idea The story also did a good job of communicating the problem with the world, the poor incentives that make everyone fight and die for ill defined, connected reasons.At first I thought there were some loose ends left, but when I thought about each of them, either they were resolved Has some really neat ideas for battles and power exploits, while still having credible threats to keep tension up I ve never seen a story where Shadow Clones work like this, and it did a good job of exploring the idea The story also did a good job of communicating the problem with the world, the poor incentives that make everyone fight and die for ill defined, connected reasons.At first I thought there were some loose ends left, but when I thought about each of them, either they were resolved by tying into some later event, or their being unresolved helped to communicate the pointlessness of the world So I don t really have complaints on that front {KINDLE} ⚫ The Waves Arisen ð The Waves Arisen is a complete novel length work of Rationalist Naruto Fanfiction No prior knowledge of the Naruto universe is necessary to follow alongA young Naruto found refuge in the village library, and grew up smart, but by blood he is Ninja, and what place is there for curiosity and calculation in this brutal world of warring states I started this off without any prior Naruto knowledge to contrast the rationalist experience with HPMOR With fleshed out magic system and characters with common sense who actually try to exploit magic in clever ways, this is hands down one of the funniest and wittiest fanfics Simply put waves arisen is canon for me.
