    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    I don't really see how a timeskip would even be possible at this moment in the story... everything is coming together. Basically everyone would just have to go on vacation for a while and forget about what they said they were going to do.

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    I personally dont think that there is a use for another timeskip. One is sufficient...two is just a poor excuse as a writer (unless planning a sequel work). Naruto by the looks of it didnt develop much during the first timeskip (he might have, but for the sake of the argument, let's just say no), unlike the others.

    It would be unreal if a second were to occur and he ended up being the most powerful shinobi out there...just not feasible. Just my two cents...

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    Im all for another time-skip.

    Really, at this point I don't think that Sas/ Naruto are strong enuff to even try to face MD. Hell, I think that Sas has gotten a huge power down and a time skip would make him stronger by making him MD's b*** for a year or 2/3.

    Yea, there is alot of tense build up. Pain is after Naruto (and I don't know how well Naruto can fend him off), Naruto just lost Sas to the dark-side again (Or Sas is on the good side. . .IDK wth those last 2 pages where), ROOT is up to something, Oro is taking over Kub, J-man died, theres a key somewhere and Naruto needs to do something as a result of Jman's death other than KB train and Key power up for 10-20 chaps inorder to kill Pain and MD.

    I think a 3rd and final timeskip is just whats needed to give the story the time it needs (Give Naruto time to train cause if he just sits in the leaf than Pain will find him right-away/ Give Sas time to get power from himself without the use of CS and Oro along with giving him more time to really soak himself into the darkness thats MD. . .IF he is with MD in those last 2 pages/ give ROOT time to devilop their attack).

    IMO theres alot that I think was brung into the light in Part 2 to set up a "resolve" part 3.
    YES WE CAN!!

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    Before Madara's appearance in front of Sasuke, I thought a timeskip would be perfect for Naruto's growth. However, in my view the story is reaching its peak where questions are getting answered and thoughts on characters are pulled back the other way.

    It wouldnt make sense for Kishi to pull off a timeskip now as it would slow down the story, where hard work is keeping Naruto as a manga at a steady pace.

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    i dont see the justification of a timeskip, the only reason for a timeskip will to fix the balance between the ppl in konoha (especially naruto) and its enemies. tbh i dont understand why the sasuke arc didnt happen sooner, imo this would have made more sense:
    - about 2 years into the time skip we see the sasuke arc from killing oro to the announcement of destroying konoha. this takes upto the point of where the time skip stops at 2.5/3 yrs.
    - naruto returns from timeskip, and contrary to what has been developed in the story, naruto isnt a complete moron who cant listen to instructions. he actually learns more than the kyuubi and elemental manipulation.

    therefore when naruto returns and goes looking for sasuke or whatever happenes with the story naruto will be ready. this will prevent actions such as another timeskip to make naruto as strong as the current enemies. this action in itself is daft as the enemies wont sit on their laurels whilst naruto trains, they also will have gotten stronger. magic fixes such as a second chakra that is "good" kyuubi chakra is even more desperate than implementing a timeskip. i for one dont want to see overnight powerups and similar things, but unfortunately without a timeskip this is the only option for konoha and naruto. what doesnt make sense is why give a power up to characters that dont need them, sasuke was a very strong ninja before the new sharingan (just look at the ninjas killed) so why the new sharingan now (later definatly but at the moment it doesnt seem to fit into the story)? reflecting on characters like naruto, kakashi, yamato, garaa, etc they are already weaker than a sasuke with a normal sharingan so how will they fight against a powered up sasuke, pein, and madara? writing like this makes us think that a time skip will be required to readdress the balance but why was it even developed like this? the only answer i can think of is that the circumstances will be in konohas favour (naruto persuades sasuke he is wrong, enemy underestimates konoha again, kyuubi's second chakra doesnt hurt naruto - this one is really stupid, etc). but writing like this often burdens the story, and tbh i dont like it one bit. we are at what seems to be a crossroads of the story what happens to the character over the next 4-6 months will shape the rest of the manga.

    wow awsome post.
    I want a timeskip though. I don't want to c a random power-up. It just destroys the story. Hopefully when naruto comes out of this one he'll be way better then he came out of the other one.

    If there is indeed a timeskip Naruto will have to improve dramatically he is the main char after all, and he'll have to be able to atleast stay on even ground with Pain/Sasuke/Madara.

    Although I'd like a timeskip to happen (to see new char designs) I don't think it will happen, what will happen imo is: Naruto will go somewhere to train (maybe the frogs mountain) while the story focuses on Kakashi and Sakura.

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    At the end of part one jiraiya said akatsuke and oro were going to make their moves again in three years.
    J-man and naruto returned to konoha two and a half years after they left for training which leaves 6 months before akatsuke can complete their plans.
    Yamato also mentions that they still had some time befor the six months are up, but probably he was talking about oro getting sasuke only.

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    what i dont understand is how will a timeskip fix anything? the enemies will also be active, not to mention naruto will have to be learning 2 times faster than the enemy to even think of catching him up. we have seen in part 2 naruto has been made to look like a slow learner, contrary to what was developed in part 1 (he was stupid but he learned fast via trail and error). techniques such as KB training only enhances naruto's learning capacity to equal that of the geniuses, such as naruto current enemies and sasuke. therefore with a time skip naruto will only catch up to or advance slightly further than the level of the enemies prior to the time skip, and during the time skip the enemies will have advanced again. the timeskip will not address the problem because simply put it didnt work the 1st time. anything else and i'll just be repeating my previous post

    We already had a little baby time skip, they went str8 from the fight with Itachi and Sasuke to Sasuke (new costume) and his new team, for all we know everyone is already in Konoha mourning Jiraiya's death.

    Re: Will there be another Timeskip?

    I am not in favor of a time skip nor do I think there will be a time skip. The only character that we think needs a time skip is Naruto. What are all the other characters going to be doing in the meantime. From the last chapter it looks like Sasuke and Madara are ready to proceed. Albeit they need some time to plan it out but it won't take as long as Naruto's training. We haven't seen what Naruto is capable of yet. Let's wait and see what Kishi can pull off with this.

    That's a good point. And that's why Naruto will probably go somewhere to train while the manga goes on and focuses on Kakashi and Sakura as Kishi said he would do.

    As for the underlined part, if Naruto was already very strong TKB training wouldn't have been introduced.
