Across the great shinobi nations, ninja with special bloodline limits have gone missing without a trace. After sustaining injuries during their investigation, Naruto and the rest of Team Kakashi head back to Konoha to heal, however not long after their return an apparition of a boy appears in the sky. His name is Hiruko – the mastermind behind the recent disappearances – and he has successfully absorbed four of the great bloodline traits in his quest to gain the strength to start a fourth great shinobi war. Hiruko now needs just one more jutsu to become the ultimate immortal ninja – and his final target is Kakashi! Sensing the immense threat Hiruko poses, the copy ninja decides to sacrifice himself and become an outcast for the sake of the village. Naruto and Sakura refuse to accept his decision and immediately chase after him, but can they defeat Hiruko and save their leader within the two-day time limit, especially when Shikamaru and the others are sent to stop them and bring them back home?
