Naruto Uzumaki's sole goal was to bring about peace to the shinobi world. Despite this, he never really mapped out a method or process to achieving it. His road to becoming Seventh Hokage has left a trail of war and unrest. Now the world enters a typical lull of what can be perceived as "peace", but tensions still boil under the surface.
It is now in the time of the next generation. The youth are coming forward, flourishing into new roles as genin and opening their opportunity for potential. They look forward to starting their journeys and choosing their paths as shinobi. With the legends of their parents coming to a close, it is now their time to step up and shine. It is their time to prove their parent's legacy.
Meanwhile, old and new foes alike bide their time and perfect past mistakes. They move undetected and unseen, moving their pieces across the board in preparation to strike. The semblances of peace covers them from suspicious eyes. Soon the pieces will be in place and they shall rear their heads, revealing peace for what it really is. An illusion.
