Is kishi even trying anymore?
I WONDER HOW MADARA WILL FINALLY BE DEFEATED??! IT COULDN'T BE WITH THOSE WEAPONS COULD IT!!
I WHO THAT MYSTERIOUS FIGURE BY SASGAY IS? COULD IT BE THAT SNAKE SAGE THAT WAS LEFT STUCK IN IZANANI?!
Seriously, only good part is that madara is turning out to be the real deal and maybe just maybe a big baddin will kill people and they will stay dead.
Also I hope that one of the main characters has to die to beat madara and when they beat him they actually kill him and don't talk-no-jutsu him.
As long as they don't kill him with talk-no-jutsu it doesn't matter. This manga is so shit the only reason I still read it is just because i'm curious to see how this train ride ends.
That being said, I wonder what sort of bullshit is going to be pulled that gives naruto and sasuke the super powerup they'll both inevitably get that will allow them to finally double-team madara.
They both can get the rinnegan. It actually makes sense.
>COULD IT BE THAT SNAKE SAGE THAT WAS LEFT STUCK IN IZANANI?!
Was that intended? (remind that nani means "what")
Karin stated that she didn't know whose chakra it was. It's hard to imagine that she'd never have met kabuto before since she was orochimaru's subordinate for years.
This is some heavy bullshit, throwing away something that can legitimately beat him.
Those tools are voice activated. He's literally going to be defeated with talk-no-jutsu
The moment he stopped trying, or even earlier.
what was wrong with the sound 4 ?
Naruto will live and sasuke will die. He will then take nejis and sasukes eyes to get the byakusharinnegan and use Amenominakanushi to steal the bijuu from madara and become the 45 tails jinchiruuki. Then naruto as the new god of the 108 paths will use Tenchikaibyaku to revive every who died during the war.
The moment was when Neji and that fat kid survived certain death pills.
The Sasuke "abduction" arc was the starting point when it turned to shit.
Well, that's the same arc.
Can someone summarize what happened since around the time Itachi came back and fought Paine in the ninja world war?
Are still on namek?
But those brothers were part of Kabuto's zombie jutsu that Kabuto undid after being defeated by Itachi.
All of Kabuto's zombies faded away except Madara.
Those brothers don't have Kabuto's jutsu keeping them around anymore so they should have disappeared.
we're talking about the containers which can seal madara, not the zombies
Has anyone tried rereading the Ninja war arc up until Tobi is revealed, and then just skipping to Madara's revival chapter?
I really cant see where this story is supposed to be going
Even if they win naruto is still a fucking retard and emo sasuke is still a murderer
Didn't the Sound 4 get revived?
Six paths power is one asspull after another.
They will simply make it so that Sasuke was never a murderer, but you will have to deal with Naurto's stupiditym though.
the dude by sasuke is going to be Madara's brother. If not fuck this, if you've already thrown logic out the window just keep going at least it's entertaining
>with Naurto's stupiditym though.
That shit has always made him unlikeable to me. Goku was a retard but at least he was a pro on the battlefield
Naruto is just dumb with loads of power and power of friendship/yes we can upgrades.
He also looks like a fucking idiot since shippuden with his clothes being to small for his frame
Man, how can people still read this? I get sticking with it to the end, I used to say the same thing, but this arc has been going on for so many years and nothing has happened. There's no way I could do that to myself.
Who is the mysterious figure?
Is it Jiraya?
Most people on here read it because its bad and we like to trash talk it
But people are saying they are gonna give the brother's kyubi chakra to naruto and I'm saying that shouldn't happen because the brothers should have faded back into ashes by now.
Oro would have picked up on it
It's someone who can pass on chakra. It's probably the revived Sage of Six Paths or Madara's brother. Some Uchiha anyway.
How exactly is hashirama and the 4th still around if the zombie jutsu is canceled.
So it's ITACHI!!!
When you write a villain so bullshittingly overpowered you can't even think of a way to defeat him the most logical conclusion would be to make him win.
Aren't the Sage's tools just inferior versions of Pain's path techniques?
And don't they require a shitload of chakra to even use for a few seconds?
Also, Obito didn't complain about the Sage's tools dragging him down so why is Madara complaining?
Madara already is storing gigantic bijuus inside his body so how would carrying some sake bottle and pot make any significant difference in weight at this point in time?
It just feels really hamfisted to see Madara complain about the tool's' weight.
I think so.
>Implying he didn't already win and the whole story isn't just some random Ninja in the genjutsu already
Other way around. Pain's techniques are inferior versions of the Rikudou Sennin's abilities, because they take a physical toll on him and aren't as refined due to the fact that they're based solely on the Rinnegan.
They do require a shitload of chakra to use, but Madara as he is now can generate chakra faster than it would be consumed by the tools. Presumably, the entire NInja Army will use the tools at once through Tenten. Or Hinata will use them and die while she holds back Madara long enough for Naruto to be revived. I mean, as long as Kishi is repeating things...
The tools are heavier than they appear. Especially when you consider what must be contained inside them. Samui's giant breasts
Madara wants freedom of movement, he doesn't need more power when he can already destroy the Ninjas on his own.
One of the recent chapters where naruto and sasuke were laying both dead on the ground was named "the real end"
orochimaru summoned them, not kabuto. 1-4 were in the death gods tummy, and they went to the convenient mask shop to summon the god and take back the souls. Then hashirama had a flash back to teach sasuke to be good.
Are you retarded? The Sasuke abduction arc was the least good thing about Naruto. Abduction, Zabuza, and the Chuuunin exams were all that ended up being decent.
Not even going to scroll past the post point but after a long time I've finally finished the first Naruto, and am now going through Shippuden and just reach the part where he finds the guy who was manipulating all the pains and wants to talk. If I remember correctly from past discussions, this is where it starts getting absolutely bullshit going downhill right? How painful are the next 150 episodes going to be to get through?
It never, ever, ever ceases to amaze me that people ask what are essentially the same questions over and over again.
Every chapter since fucking chapter 2. DURP IS KISHI EVEN TRYING ANYMORE?
And yet you suckers keep reading.
It's bullshit because retcons and Kishi deciding "Nope, death isn't permanent" all the time starts there.
One thing that always pissed me off was Naruto still being stuck in his noob rank when he and that other dude who got the promotion were the only ones to really advance
Not that it matters but after the time skip they didnt even bother to give him the promotion while everyone including bug and beast boy got it
Its the small things about this series that really piss you off and make you dislike it even more
I just want to see how it ends.
It's the same as Bleach threads.
>only good part is that madara is turning out to be the real deal
DBZ power level gtfo
"I'm going to become Hokage, even if it means being a genin forever!"
Kishi just can't write good supporting characters.
Which once again is bullshit since he advanced further then the others and his power level is beyond most of this comrades.
And considering how stupid most of them are his stupidity alone shouldnt hold him back
he also cant draw women
Why didnt orochimaru take back his arms from the death god tummy and do double jutsu with four arms?
>the six pathes geezer
jesus christ I'm sticking to the anime, the manga translation is literally dub-tier
>implying that translation matter when it comes to naruto
>implying that its worse than watching a poorly animated anime which is filled with constant fillers and flashbacks while recycling the same music over and over
I think it's the opposite. Characters like Lee, Neji, Shikamaru, and even antagonists like Orochimaru and Nagato all have more interesting characters and backstories than Naruto, but Kishimoto rarely if ever does anything with them other than comic relief or killing them off for shock value. The last time Lee was relevant was before the damn timeskip.
It's more of a problem that there's too many characters and none of them get fleshed out adequately.
I'm not gonna start an argument with you about this, but I actually really like the anime. It's pretty high up on my list of favorite.
I didn't make it clear. He can't write good side characters because they then start stealing the show away from the heroic trio. He has to keep the side characters underpowered and incapable of holding their own against the biggest threats.
Jesus Christ your taste is shit.
Okay is people we're all missing something here: HOW THE FUCK CAN THE 4TH JUST INSTANTANEOUSLY EXTRACT THE FUCKING NINE TAILS IN A MATTER OF SECONDS WHEN IT TOOK AKATSUKI 3 FUCKING DAYS LIKE INSERT JACKIE CHAN HERE I'M SO WTF IS HI WHAT?!??!
I don't think the jar is going to work. Sasuke still learned that secret ninjutsu from the 2nd he has to use. The jar will probably explode because he's fucking Madara.
Do you think logic applies in Naruto?
The Hokages were supposed to be perma-dead but they came back.
>2 hours later Tenten makes a joke about his death
Bleach is going out IN FLAMES, this is just sad
I dunno, I still enjoy it. I just wish it would move faster.
There's a lot of shit that happened so here goes:
Itachi and Sasuke fought Kabuto. Itachi uses Sharingan hacks to hypnotize Kabuto to release Edo Tensei.
Sasuke questions his own motivations and decides to revive Orochimaru through an unconscious Anko's curse mark. Jugo and Suigetsu show up out of nowhere and are tagging along with Sasuke and Orochimaru to find "the ones that know EVERYTHING!" (i.e. 1st-4th Hokages).
Naruto, Kakashi, and Guy-sensei fought Obito, Madara, AND the Ten-Tails.
The whole ninja army shows up to help the fight against the Ten-Tails.
Sasuke and company show up to help out against Ten-Tails Obito.
Obito is defeated and now Madara revives himself to become a living human and is now the Jinchuriki for the Ten-Tails.
Also, Sasuke and Naruto are going to die!!!
I'm getting extremely frustrated at it to be honest with that chapter before last.
Do you really need an entire chapter discussing fear, then telling the enemy about what training you went through just to hit the enemy with one "final" attack?
Was that really worth 18 pages? Is this fodder piece of shit really worth 3 fucking chapters?
Orochimaru got his arms back to do the summoning. His arms were sealed in the same place as the 4th's soul.
If it's Itachi that would be so stupid, it would make everything h said to Sasuke after Kabuto fight irelevant as the final talk.
I think you guys are missing the obvious plot point that those items were discarded so that the Kyuubi brothers can be put inside Naruto to buy time, since they fucked up securing other other yin half.
Also, Nocht's power seems like that one Espada that Byakuya defeated way back.
the only people who can do edo tensei are already on the battlefield. The only other person left would be Kabuto but he's stuck in Izanami.
>but he's stuck in Izanami
not really, he's standing by sasuke now
t's been a long time but uh...standard fights that are all a blur now, Madara shows up as an edo tensei and from that point on everyone survives only because madara cant stop trolling them long enough to outright kill everyone. You'll see people claim survival was due to power of friendship but that's bullcrap. The guy was and is still just fucking around to this current chapter. Generally talking about how this generation is shit and when he was young he had to stab 3 miles just to get to school. Whippersnappers these days don't know anything about proper ninjaing.
Sasuke becomes Dr Snakes and fights with Itachi vs Kabuto. Kabuto has mastered sage techniques that let him fight blind so that he cant be hit by bullshit sharringan techniques only to be hit by bullshit sharringan techniques. Kabuto shows his sad backstory showing DANZO YET AGAIN is the one who fucks everything up and caused all the trouble we may ever see in the series.
Itachi sings Diana Ross' IIIIIII WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU to sasuke and undoes the edo tensei.
Naruto and some others fight the tailed beasts controlled by fake madara.
Ninja army rejoices about the edo tenseis being gone but the smoke clears and madara informs them that you can totally stick around after edo tensei is released if you know the trick.
NInja army shits itself
Madara trolls some more
>Massive all out protective assault to survive the meteor
>Would you like another?
but they were brought back by the edo tensei that was deactivated
Kishi should come up with something less stupid
Naruto solo'd the whole army and won the war
Itachi wanted to die for the village, so Sasuke now wants to become Hokage
Orochimaru becomes good guy because.
Everyone that Sasuke betrayed forgives him because.
Neji becomes Messiah
Obito vs Naruto
Naruto wins because he won't stop bringing up Rin in his arguments, which is some indisputable winning point
Madara vs Naruto and Sasuke + everyone else (irrelevant)
Madara give the good guys some legendary sealing tools because.
The weapons are actually a plot device to make us remember that Gai and Lee exist. Then we get the final battle with both of them activating the 8th gate beating Madara, having Gai die and Lee survive and giving Madara a friendship speech about hard work. Madara is thankful and dies. Naruto and Sasuke become co-kages and no one remembers how Madara was defeated.
Maybe the undoing of the edo tensei (the cancel order) didn't reach them since they were in the magical world of sealed away inside the tools? I'm not saying it isn't batshit stupid, but we know better than to think Kishimoto wouldn't try using it as an explanation
maybe Ginkaku and Kinkaku just aren't in there anymore. Remember, they had to use the pseudo ninetails chakra to make the ten-tail. Who is to say there is anything left of them in there.
>You guys suck. Harashima was way better than this repeated yet again
trollling. what you thought it was me? Hah ! did you forget ninjas can make clones?
Somewhere along the line Obito is tobi which makes Sasuke officially the weakest Uuchiha in the entire series.
Trolling of the surviving kages again
Madara gets bored and off panels all the kages sits there and does nothing while tobi does all the fighting since he doesn't give a crap.
Sasuke summons orochimaru. Him and the gang go summon the old kages and stuff.
Sasuke acts like a little shit and nearly dies because the first two kages dont give much of a fuck about the edo tensei control but the first decides to tell backstory anyway.
Turns out the uchiha are cursed to act like retarded emos the second something bad happens to them and Itachi was literally the only cool one to ever exist.
First is sad they all got wiped out and has regrets.
Second is glad they got wiped out for being emo shits and has no regrets.
Sasuke goes to the battlefield and declares he wants to be hokage.
Everyone goes WAT
Harashima arrives and Madara puts on his yandere face but gets disappointed because harashima is too busy fighting the ten tails thingy from all the beasts blorped together to pay attention to him.
Hinata is NTRed yet again in front of Naruto's father
Tobi is defeated!
Madara grabs tobi , makes him resurrect him, bitches out ALL of the tailed beasts at once, becomes the sage of the 6th paths,.
I think that Minato will just somehow succeed in pass the half Kyuubi he has to Naruto and the tools dont actually hold anything Kyuubi related anymore... They will just be, who would have thought, used to try to seal Madara.
possible characters near sasuke
Karin said is was an eeriee (evil?) chakra she didnt recognize
madara's brother, con - second hokage didn't recognize him
Jiraya, con - not evil
Kushina, con - not evil
Yamato, (wtf happened to him) con - not evil
Kabuto, con - Karin didnt recognize
Some random uchiha ancestor
The original mage of the six paths
so, which one /a/?
it's kabuto. karin didnt recognize the chakra because she never saw like he was when he fought sasuke and itachi
Easy. it's going willingly. Akatsuki is trying to drag something out that doesnt WANT to go out.
What did happen to Yamato? it's like they completely forgot him.
The only thing I remember was that Kabuto said he could make the Zetsu army stronger using his dna or something, then he kept Yamato trapped in that huge cave
Not true actually because if i'm not mistaken, Obito summoned the Pot and the Gourd to give it to the Demonic Statue AFTER the Impure World jutsu was cancelled.
they never said what happened to him, last time they showed him he was uncouscious in that tree-thing being used to power up the white zetsu clone army
I think it's the original sage, and since sasuke kinda died, when he awakens he willhave rinnegan
No, he stole and used the tools to give the chakra to the statue way before the fight Kabuto vs Itachi and Sasuke... It just sort of went nowhere, the situation was like "so the statue is nearly ready" and meanwhile Tobi fought Naruto, Bee, and then Kakashi and Gai joined them... After beating the kages Edo Madara came over too, and only after that Itachi came through and Madara used the seals to free himself from being released
>Madara climbs onto flower
>Reveals that there was never such thing as infinite tsukuyomi
>Reverse summons the Juubi to the moon
>Rinnegan ass-pull returns chakra to the Juubi
>Madara suffocates on the moon
>Dies for the sins of all ninja
>No one has ninjutsu anymore
>Sasuke vs Naruto hand to hand/ninja tool fight OVA
I don t know much about rules of story-telling, but they wouldnt have karin saying she didnt recognize the chakra for no reason, so it's probably a character we've never seen before.
my guess is izuna, madara's brother
I'm sure oro would be able to recognize his chakra though.
I would be absolutely okay with this.
Karin would recognize danzo
It's shisui or Izuna. Look at the hair. It could still be Izuna because the 2nds view was obscured by smoke or dust and he might not be able to sense him because he's unable to use jutsu.
its Kishimotos dad
Only his legs were shown no? Anyway i'm pretty sure it's Kabuto, he got out of Izanami's loop and is now a good guy and came to help...
>Only his legs were shown no?
They showed his silhouette obscured by smoke.
I think Kabuto got out, turned good guy and summoned Izuna. Izuna wasn't exactly a good guy so his chakra would be dark and sinister. I think Kabuto was might have had Izuna as a trump card to fight Madara.
Sasuke is gonna get a Rinnengan.
He got that wood guy power too, just like Madara
Is barefoot and dirty so it has to be someone who have been on the battlefield.
But, the chunnin examn isnt about power alone, is about tactics, and self control, which naruto had none. I can see him passing the exam now as all the exp his got in this war though.
you forgot one key element; Naruto is now friend with the kyubi, which happened way too fast, just like: can we be friends? Daaa ok. DATTEBAYO~!
Shit should have its own arc for fuck sake.
Nope. Moments after the Impure Jutsu was released he summoned the pot and gourd to feed to the Demonic Statue. So that means the Pot and Gourd have a powerful enough seal to keep even people summoned from the Impure World Jutsu sealed inside. It is still possible to revive Naruto with the Kyuubi chakra from the Gold and Silver brothers.
and how would they do that if the anulation of the edo tensei couln't let them out from it
that leads me to believe that the pot and gourd might be strong enough to seal madara
I just can't see how can Madara lose the war.
He could lose the battle with those weapons,
He lost his right arm, plenty DNA to clone him. has a shit ton of Zetsu fags, has all the Sharingan eyes he could wish for.
See: OP's image.
OH MAN they are going to use that pot thingy to seal Black Zetsu too.
Oh shit, this.
why did madara spit out the sages tools if they were inside the gedo mazo, not him.
Except what about orochimaru closure and Black Zetsu and mystery man and spiral zetsu?
Wow, this actually makes sense.
I think that guy that was standing over Sasuke is Bee, he was just faking his death again, that's why people forgot about him and everybody is fousing on Naruto, either that or people don't care about im and he is death now
but bee is a nigger.
This shit will never end
But how Bee survived the extraction if Naruto is almost kill?
The 8 tails cut off one of his tentacles with bee in it, like during his fight with sasuke
It's that guy who gave his name to kabuto.
(The other kid that was in the same orphanage)
Yea I caught that too
I'm not sure be would feel evil to karin.
He might resent sasuke for trying to capture him but he's not a bad guy, right?
I think karin would recognize his chakra, btw.
>No one has ninjutsu anymore
Then you'd just have the same problems we do.
Nuclear weapons would eventually be developed
they'd still havee taijutsu and genjutsu
genjutsu, and senjutsu require chakra, and everyone got chakra from the tree.
So wait, what's the point of stealing the black kyuubi if Madara already has the 10-tails? Also why the fuck are Minato and Kakashi so slow to stop black zetsu?
Stop them from saving Naruto who is his strongest enemy
>Everyone that Sasuke betrayed forgives him because.
No one has forgiven him yet. After the war is over, I'm sure many people would be opposed to Sasuke becoming Hokage. Especially the other nations because they had agreed he was a rogue ninja and that he must be eliminated.
For now no one attacks Sasuke because they need to take out an even greater threat (Madara). It's like in WW2 when the West was allied with the Soviet Union to eliminate Nazi Germany. Even though the West was anti-communist, they needed the Soviet Union's military strength to bring down the immediate threat of Nazi Germany
Well, I guess but he said "finally" as if he's been trying to capture him.
they dont want them naruto to have that kyuubi half, ad the other two dont want to hurt obito's body
Maybe he needs all the chakra he can get from the tailed beasts to make his plan effective
Makes sense I guess but even so, Kakashi was willing to destroy Obitos left eye, so they should at least try to incapacitate him
How long until this fucking thing finally ends? How many chapters?
This year apparently. At the latest around December, so about 40 more chapters at the most.
I really don't understand how this chakra thing works. If the Sage of the six paths was the first person born with chakra is everyone who can utilize chakra a descendant of the Sage?
The ride never ends, ninja-kun.
think magic mode = enabled in the whole world
This. I love to bitch about nardo on the internet.
Part 2 was a Naruto/Saske wank fest. Kakashi got a little love and Sai and Sakura weren't fully forgotten because they were also Team 7 after all.
Then, besides Shikamaru, Bee and maybe Guy, every other side-character is just cannon fodder, even the Kages have little importance.
It's sad part 1 had such a huge and interesting cast and Kishi just ignored/sacrificed/used them as filler.
>Naruto can now be freely discussed on /a/
And this is how you know the board is dead
Everyone's shitting on it if you didn't notice
It died way past Naruto, though.
It all started with the epic maymay culture getting more and more popular, and it was downhill after that.
So it's like when DIO developed his stand and all the Joestars got their stands simultaneously?
It's already been established that strong enough people can break free from the Edo Tensei. Itachi, Madara, and all the Hokages did it. If the Silver and Gold Bros are as strong as they were hyped to be--and they had nine tails chakra--then it would make sense that they're still around.
Also, it could just be that because they were sealed in super magical tools, they weren't destroyed when Kabuto ended the Edo Tensei.
I can't fucking stop laughing at how ridiculously accurate this is.
But they didn't have 9 tails anymore. Obito extracted it to make the juubi. And there were plenty of people who were strong, that couldn't defy the edo tensei. The 2nd Hokage, Itachi, 3rd Raikage, Nagato.
Wow, it never hit me that it had the nine tails chakra from thr brothers and the eight tails from the tentacle....
Just thought it was a big amount of chakra when I read it
if you're basing my entire taste off of one show, you're shit
>I WHO THAT MYSTERIOUS FIGURE BY SASGAY IS? COULD IT BE THAT SNAKE SAGE THAT WAS LEFT STUCK IN IZANANI?!
It's obviously meant to be Jiraiya. Minato recognises his presence, Karin doesn't know who he is, he's the guy to continually fuck up Obito's plans over and over so the guy brought him back to fuck up Madara's plans. Plus all the three sennin fighting together again.
He's probably inside spiral zetsu
Why wouldn't their chakras have been absorbed by the statue though? Wasn't that meant to have been what made the Juubi earlier?
>All the tailed beasts signed a contract with Naruto when they "gave" him something
>Sakura sacrafices herself to revive Naruto
>He summons all the tailed beasts out of Madara, effectivly extracting them
>The extraction kills Madara
>tfw Rock Lee opens the 8th gate and one hit solos Madara.
It's Itachi. Because fuck logic.
>that leads me to believe that the pot and gourd might be strong enough to seal madara
Even if they were, it would only be a temporary solution. They can't leave the bijuu inside Madara forever. Naruto has to get his buddy the Kyuubi back and Gaara will probably get Shuukaku back.
I wonder what Anko is doing
Itachi used Izagami with his left eye to change destiny and return from death.
Blind Itachi is still 2 or 3 times stronger than Madara and trashes him, then becomes Hokage. END
Itachi ain't even blind, he went and got Sasuke's eyes and now he has Eternal Mangekyou Sharingan.
Kabuto's poison seems very good because the girl's been sleeping since before the beginning of the war.
Tayuya makes my dick hard.
Can't they just shoot Mad-ara ara
No, Kabuto ate them or something and transformed his dick into them.
Only Hashirama truly broke the Edo Tensi's control, since Orochimaru used the body transfer on a Zetsu clone, who is made up of Hashirama's overpowered cells
Which Saskue should have now and is somehow dying
Shukaku already tried it with sand bullets. He just regenerated it off
>STOP LIKING THINGS I DONT LIKE
Incoming time loop where it turns out that Guy and Lee got the idea for those ankle weights from Madara dropping the heavy sage tools. Calling it right now, simply because I want the best characters to have time to shine once again ;_;
Everyone is trashing this absolute shit.
Shut the fuck up, we're not on your side.
The only question that matters is: Is Madara immune to Nardo's talk no jutsu?
If an 100+ years revived demented warlord actually gets convinced by a 16-17 year old brat that his lofe goal is a mistake it would be too much even for Kishimoto.
>watch latest episodes of anime
>see Bijuu counting song
>dafaq is this
>Hey, this isn't half bad
>imagine Maile Flanagan (dub) singing it
>oh jesus, kill it with fire
Who are they going to get to sing that or will they even bother?
Why is Itachi so epic?
It will be so terrible it'll be good. BELIEVE IT
You better stop or you will be banned
Naruto will beat Madara but lose his ability to use chakra ending his career as a ninja and his dreams of becoming Hokage.
DAMN SON WHERE'D YOU FIND THESE
And Sasuke will get his real body back
At this point I'm just waiting to see hinata get NTR'd.
It's obviously this faggot
WHY THE FUCK HASN'T THIS ARC ENDED YET?
WHY THE FUCK ISN'T NARUTO OVER YET?
>My biggest disappointment is that Naruto, Bee & Obito have been in the same battlefield since Nov 30th 2011.
Remember when they were trying to go somewhere with the whole "everyone has their own special elemental chakras" or whatever?
Then they just completely scrapped it.
well looking back, the whole series has been one big retcon. I would be interested in knowing kishi's original ideas for it, assuming he had any at all other than earning as much jew gold as possible. He at least must have pondered other routes to take with the story. I mean, it is a bit hypocritical of him to start out with a story about an underdog and then it turns out he's actually jesus. but hey, I guess all shonen protagonists are jesus in one way or another.
>captcha: ruecrea LORD
kishi rues creating a Lord, guys. captcha confirms it.
triple dubs also confirms it.
Jesus christ shut the fuck up
Early Naruto really reminds me of One Piece, in a sense that it felt like it would be an adventure series, with Naruto traveling to different lands doing missions, with the higher rank missions coming in a bit later.
In fact, Naruto could have been incredible if Kishi would have stuck to the formula it started out with. I can just imagine them traveling to a new land for each arc, with Naruto saving the day each time, and being accepted by the villages he saves. The big bad at the end could have been Orochimaru, but they went an entirely different route with that.
Honestly, I thought Oro was going to be the final villain. The series set itself up to seem that way from the Chunin exams up until the point where Sasuke killed him (the first time)
It's fucking Namek all over again.
It's obviously Neji.
Wait has this arc really been going on since 2011.
Holy shit, is Kishi trying to outdo Miura.
