Well think about it, if the way Naruto conquered the Kyuubi is the same as how KB conquered the 8 tails, surely Naruto still has a kyuubi consciousness somewhere in there that he can interact with. one that ISNT an asshat.
If that is the case, then surely the kyuubi can gather natural chakra while feeding it and its own to Naruto. Its not like the kyuubi has to move or anything.
O RLY, Naruto is powering up too fast in a literal sense this is true. He is only sixteen years old and as powerful as Killerbee, Raikage the latter who is well past his middle-ages. However, in the story point of view he isn't. Remember Sasuke is Naruto rival, and before this Kyuubi power up Sasuke was well ahead in terms of power-ups, so this one was definitely needed. Also, we are on chapter 505 by now the main character should be strong, and Kishi is wrapping up the story so this new power-up definitely makes sense.
My only issue is that Naruto unlike say bleach did a good job of keeping a natural evolution to Naruto-verse powers.
Jiraya for example went Rasengan to Giant rasengan,
Naruto Rasengan, Rasen-Shurikan etc
It's now looking worryingly like these new powers simply supercede the old ones, and remember we have only really seen Naruto fight in Sage mode once and already he seems to have something new and better....
why is it everytime naruto gets a downgrade people say he got a power up?
this naruto is definitively weaker than 5+ tailed naruto/kyubi (well until i see him destroy the landscape anyway)
Apart from that, there is no info about his strength and speed so your early judgement seems rash to me.
QB cloak was seriously lame. The one I prefer is tha one he fought oro and pain with. I think we may have lost the only chance at seeing interesting Naruto fights. Cause we all can agree naruto only knows three moves but Kyuubi does alot more.
With this cloak all I expect to see him do is sense things zip around and rasengan things. Where does Kyuubi come in at all. Will naruto even get the ability to resist the sharigan.
if we compare the distance from pain arc until now yes of course the power up is too fast compared with the entire episodes of shippuden and i agree with the topic starter according on manga but in the anime kishi will surely put dozens of fillers after pain arc and we will see naruto perfectly mastering SM
I think with Sasuke, we got to see his MS's limits (ie. battle vs Killer Bee and against the Kages and Danzou) which forced him to want to get stronger.
With Naruto, we really haven't seen SM been taken to the limit (Think DBZ when Vegeta and Trunks got their asses handed to them in SS1 form by the Androids and were forced to get stronger.) Naruto's power-ups would be better served after another time skip if he hasn't encountered such a dilemma IMO.
to make my meaning clearer,i would go on to predict that 9t mode is better when speed and sealing is the order of the day.but when its ninjutsu and taijutus sage mode is still the one (rasenshuriken, extending body reach in frog katas).
learing sage mode was a quicker job in comparsion,still it was presented in an acceptable manner.

The main problem with Naruto's development is the randomness of it. He went away on a training trip with one of the best shinobi in the world, and he came back substantially unchanged (without even knowing about KB's special properties, or about element manipulation, not to mention that, for someone who has signed one of the three strongest summoning contracts, he is suprisingly reluctant to put the Toads to good use... pretty stupid, considering that they have been the element that had allowed him to with a confrontation with Shukaku, thus defeating an opponent that would reach Kage level in the next three years).
Then, in a week, he manages to master a special brand of ninja techniques that Jiraya had not been able to wield correctly after decades of training. He also completes a jutsu the Yondaime had been unable to finish, and apparently manages to gain control over the Kyubi and gain Hiraishin-level speed at in a single move. Add to that the charka sensory abilities.
What I am trying to tell, I guess, is that before, he didn't have almost any jutsu besides kage bunshin, and now it seems like Kishimoto wants to add any random thing that comes to mind to Naruto's arsenal, without bothering to explain how he managed to learn it. Take those huge Rasengan-like techniques... how can he manage to do that, and at the same time be unable to produce a regular-sized rasengan without two-three clones aiding him?. More importantly, how was he able to find the time to learn how to do that, on top of learning to feel nature, trying to learn an entire new style of taijutsu and perfecting his chakra sensing skills?
actually i think its been steady just it always judged compare to peoples expectations.
look round about how many people wrote super strong naruto fanfic out there. people wanted him to pown.
exepectation are the problem.
people get mad cause naruto learns new things and some say nothing when sasuke pulls jutsus and chakra out of no where. like summoning the hawk, getting chakra from darkness and being able to control ameratsu easily better then even itachi who had the MS for many years. it is because the is better then itachi the same way naruto is better then jiriaya and minato that is why they can do things the other gen could not.

I dont think naruto is powering up too fast. I mean, naruto has been out for basically ten years now and we are just finally seeing him use the full kyuubi chakra without side effects. I'm happy with the progression of the manga.
