    This is a gargantuan crossover in which the 11 Konoha rookies, plus Sasuke and Karin, Juugo, and Suigetsu, are sent to another universe by Kakashi's Kamui while they were all on a mission to retrieve Sasuke. The main enemy is Luthor, who takes a nefarious interest in all of the ninja, and especially the Sharingan.
    None of the main characters are neglected, and they all have some truly badass moments. An aspect I found interesting and that the story puts some emphasis on was the differences in ideology between the League and shinobi, even the "good" shinobi from the Leaf village. There is plenty of action too, though the only reason Batman is able to fight on a shinobi's level is because of some author fiat involving the new dimension weakening chakra, but I didn't mind that.
    As for flaws, there is so much going on at some points that the story feels somewhat bloated, and the writing is sometimes dry. Overall though, I feel that the execution and concept far outweigh its flaws, and with more than 300,000 words it will keep you occupied for a while.
    4/5

    Solid story and a good crossover. Sasuke and a few other characters felt a bit odd and wrong at times but overall, it was engaging and interesting.

    4/5, worth reading.

    The usual question: How much knowledge of the source material is required to enjoy the story?
    I don't know anything about the Justice League or the Teen Titans. (I know who Batman and Superman are, but otherwise not much.)

    I am currently at chapter nine and goddamnit but Hinata is absolutely disgustingly annoying. I don't why the author is portraying her the way he is but it is really hindering my ability to enjoy the fic.

    Everyone else has acted like a soldier finding themselves in enemy territory, what does she do, she basically tells everything she knows to a stranger she's just met, after been in a situation where all of them might have just died.


    Other than that the story is actually pretty interesting.I'll rate it after I'm done with whats there.

    Knowledge of Justice League is practically required, but from the Teen Titans side skimming the Wikipedia article would be enough.
