I'd say the plot would have flowed better if he got beaten by Naruto and Sasuke to a pulp before he willing fuses with the mother figure thing. And Kishimoto would have been able to milk a few more episodes out of that fight as well...

I'm sure this has been mentioned numerous times already, but Naruto has seriously turned into the current day Drag-on Ball. The elevated chikara, the "unique" killer moves, the massive fights in barren land, etc.

I used to like both Dragon Ball and Naruto because they precisely weren't like that.

I'm not sure if you should be spoilering that, since it's manga plot.

While there are parallels to DB, I wouldn't necessarily call that a bad thing. There's a reason it's still popular today. Jokes about ki-charging and "beat up the good guy until he unlocks a new power" are prevalent, but it's the storylines and characters that keep DB popular even today. I don't see it as a detriment to the Naruto plots since the story is still captivating.

Personally, I think this "war" has dragged on way too long. It's nice to see it progress a bit faster than we're used to.

watching no, reading the manga yes

i find that theres so many plot twists and things going on in the manga right now that im often left confused as to what is happening. i usually have to read the past chapters to make sense of everything

At least it looks like there's no foreplay for the upcoming stuff.

Right?

Feels like they are dragging the ending too long for the manga. Hope another villain doesn't pop up after the current fight. Lol

Hard to believe that I've been following it for almost 10 years. Where has the time gone?

found this cool
Quote:
Manga author Inio Asano, whose solanin, What a Wonderful World! and Nijigahara Holograph have made it to North America, was famously called "a voice of his generation" by Japan's major newspaper the Yomiuri Shimbun. So, with Naruto ending its Shonen Jump run after 15 years, Asano has illustrated his impression of a generation who has grown up reading the orange ninja.

its sad to see the manga end, but i agree that it should have ended a lot sooner. For me, the plot started to go downhill after the Invasion of Pain arc.

Where did you end off with the anime?

Personally, the early "great war" stuff at the end was awesome. Just drawn out, like a lot of things in the series. Doesn't mean that it was bad.
