A strange meteor falls from the sky and blows up before reaching the ground annihilating everything in its wake. It has strange energy that affects those around it. The villagers take upon themselves to grow with it and become powerful shinobi using it. Though it seems there might be something wrong with this. Though it is an artful type of chakra, able to be created into what the user wants it to. Whether its a peacock, a badger-like beast, even wings to fly! Quite an awesome way to get around.
This Arc was one of my top favorites in the series. Subaru (dub name is Sumaru, but he's named is an interesting guy, comparable to a normal Sasuke though friendlier it seems. I liked him and his concept, wished he could appear in the later series. Come on Masashi, he deserves proper recognition!
