No there is, Kishi might put in a timeskip to make the character older and more experienced, that way Naruto would be old enough to become the hokage by the end of the manga
Not really, it can actually go both ways.....
Either there will be no time skip, and Naruto will train and probably confront pain.....as Naruto has his KB to speed up the trainning process....
And afterwards Naruto will become hokage.
Or there will be a short timeskip and we will see an 17 old Naruto as Anbu or special jounin
personally, i am routing for no timeskip because it will take longer and help character development, if needed.
Why is it ridiculous, the major theme of this manga has been Naruto's journey to become hokage. Currently he still a little too raw to become hokage as he doesnt yet posses the intelligence the Hokages have an need to run Konoha.
Oh and btw he could gain battle experience during a timeskip if he wanted to.
Sarry i dont see Naruto becoming a jounin or anything since why would he bother with it unless Tsunade gives it to him. In Part 1 he also said he would become Hokage even if he was a genin ranked ninja forever
Im with Sarry. I can see it going either way.
If Naruto is to become the Kage at some point than I figure theres going to be a time jump somewhere in the future. He is both too young and not wise enuff to become the Kage now.
(BUT, if Naruto is to die without reaching his goal than oh well. . .no time-skip needed)
And I personally think that it would be pretty cheap for Naruto to train, with no time-skip, over the course of like a month or 2 (in his world) and become strong enuff to take out MD and Pain. Either he could train for like 10-40 chaps and pull off this, abit cheap, feat or they could say "Naruto went to the Toad Mont to train" and than time-jump him into 2 - 4 years from now.
Like I said, could go either way. . .time-jump or no time-jump.
I personally perfer the Time-Jump seeing as how I would like to put this BS part 2 behind us and start anew.
I just want to dub this "Naruto's crappy era" and move on.
couldn't agree more Black/Light. Although it sounds retarded that in a duration of few months we're going to have another time skip, I rather have that then naruto pulling a sasuke on us and suddenly becomes a fighting machine.
I too will share Black/Light opnion and dub this "Naruto's crappy era" and move on.
how is he going to gain battle experience during the timeskip? if there is a timeskip he is going to be training.

For Naruto 2-3 months would be enough, but for the others??
None of the other (Konoha) Ninja is strong enough to take Akatsuki down just yet. And Naruto can't possibly take down all Villains alone.....
Sasuke needs more power, so does the rest of Team 7, 8, 10, Gai team. Maybe The sand too.
Since Kakshi had a revelation about Mads (that he has Sharingan), he'll report it to the Hokage and more measures will be taken.
And that will take a lot of time, but it'll be cool to see the Naruto & Co as grownups (if a time-skip happens).
You openly say that training alone wont make someone a Kage yet you fall back on the KB training as a way for Naruto to get closer to the goal of this manga (beat the Red Cloud gang/ get Sas back and become Kage).
Theres NOTHING saying that Naruto couldn't wonder the lands, stopping small Ninja wars all on his own, in this time-jump. And just think of how much he COULD learn in 2-4 years of KB training that goes as fast as like 2-4 years with in a matter of 2-4 months.
( GODLY POWER!!!)
And I don't think that these are the last members of Akatsuki. I mean, we are down to PAIN going after Naruto. . .unless Naruto owns Pain in some up-n-coming chaps I can clearly see this Akatsuki fight being dragged out abit longer and inorder for that to happen Naruto would have to delay his incounter with Pain somehow.
Either way, we are down to the wire. . .either Naruto faces Pain soon and goes all "I can pwn Pain AND MD AND Sas after he learns from MD" mode or their incounter is delayed long enuff for Naruto to get that strong which would give them alot of time to make some new members (Team Snake comes to mind).
I remember the same comment for the first part in one of his interview, If I'm not wrong, one of the many translated by shannaro team. I Don' think that Kishimoto or Sueisha is going to stop milking that manga, at least not that easy. Call me crazy but as long it keeps making money that good, is a long he will continue creating the manga.
I see naruto being a 600 to 800 chapters manga.... which is insane and rare in these times, but the sucess of the manga/anime is also weird/rare in these times.
My personal opinion.

I said training alone wont make him a kage but i never said he didn't need training. Maybe you should go read my posts again then you will see parts where i said he could train with the KB while kishi focus on kakashi and sakura so there wouldn't be a need for a timeskip to make him stronger. And what part of that post(the one you reply to) imply that training make you a Kage level? because i can't really see where you arguement is coming from. All i can see in that post was me saying that naruto can cut a 2-4 years training into 2-4 months training with is KB training which in turn means there is no need for a timeskip for him to just train because kishi could focus on kakashi and sakura while he train with KB for 4 months. I'm really still trying to figure where you arguement is coming from because there nothing in that post that imply KB training alone is enough to get naruto to Kage level. I was just making a point that naruto can achieve a 2-4years training in just 2-4months.
