Authors Note Volume 42,
This can be translated as,
It has been over 40 volumes of Naruto, and has became a long series.
From now on, I'm going more to draw for the last part !
It does seems like Madara and Pein are going to be the last villains for both Naruto and Sasuke. If there are to be no more arcs then whats left is Danzou and ROOT, Kabuchimaru and finishing Akatsuki off. There is also a probability that Naruto will get rid of the kyuubi before the end too
Im thinking about 10- 12 more volumes which is around 100 chapters and with 52 weeks in a year, Naruto will end around this time in 2010
BTW, the extracts were stolen off StopTazmo
maybe it can turn from "Naruto" to "Konoha" or "Ninjas of the leaf" for example
Well it was obvious.
The Uchiha mystery is being solved, Naruto's background has been given and the final battle (Naruto x Sasuke) is already in the process of being set up.
The end is near ok 2010 xD is far away but with this hole Uchiha thing a really big part end. But it is better to have an good ending than an ending who is too long and at the end boring.
The only manga which has been released in a magazine other than Naruto is his first one called Karakuri, i dont think i was about mafia but cyborgs or something
However, guessing what his next project will be is damn near impossible. He could have a few ideas up his sleeve considering the Gangster-thing, but I kinda doubt it. It would be weird, at least for me, to read a manga from the same author but with 2 totally different worlds.
But by all means, if he can pull it off I'd love to see it. But for now I'm hoping all his focus goes into Naruto until the very end.
Anyone seen the Naruto pilot btw? It's totally different from the Naruto we know today, I'm glad it didn't end up like that ;p
Check it out, it's just weird ;p
Also; The Mafia manga "Mario".

that pilot was complete garbage...
it does seem kishi is trying to wrap this manga up...he's bringing closure to major issues in the manga and not leaving loose ends for the story to continue after this current arc is over...unless the good guys fail and have to attempt to kill the bad guys all over again, kishi can't continue this story much longer.
anyone think that the final fight won't be konoha vs pein, sasuke vs madara, sasuke vs naruto or naruto vs pein but it'll actually be naruto vs kyuubi?

i think naruto will end with sasuke vs naruto, but naruto needs to train and become better which might take a long time.
The last part may be really long.
naruto vs sasuke won't happen , it will be Sasuke and Naruto vs Madara and Pain.
Naruto + Sasuke vs Madara + Kyuubi,
Sasuke uses a fire jutsu and Naruto uses his wind to make is stronger so it can overpower Madara and the Kyuubi's jutsu, The end
personnally the pilot for naruto wasnt that interesting.......
i think it is a better idea to finish naruto at its own pace...not to rush it up because it will serve as a good thing for Kishi when publishes his new project after naruto ends.
what pace is that though? I mean, it does feel rushed a bit, but I can't see it going at any other pace...if he drags it out, it would start to really suck...I don't mind the pace, I just don't like how he's focusing on just one character...before he used to at least jump between different stories so that we wouldn't really get bored...now we're getting beat with uchiha garbage on a weekly basis for a good half year almost (I remember saying I was tired of this uchiha bullshit in jan...) Kishi lost that touch and I think that was what made the manga move so smoothly and never left us bored...
