Chakra hasn't really been the problem as the story establishes that people were fighting long before Kaguya ate the chakra fruit. The problem has been the whole system or cycle of shinobi - killing and revenge. It's something that Hashirama was able to improve by establishing the first hidden village, and something that Naruto (and Sasuke) can get rid of when or if they finally establish peace. Without getting rid of chakra.Quote:
The whole grouping people together and placing barriers is unknown, but the chakra was just used to enhance methods of killing. I'm not sure if chakra needs to be rid of, as it can be used as the Sage originally wanted it to be used for. Besides, if teh chakra is removed, won't that mean the shinobi will die? Though, I only remember Kakashi dying because he used up every single bit of his chakra.
From what I've seen, Kishi does seem to waste material at times. But the point is that Kishi can decide to bring up Kaguya's dad as a mention and then make him appear, or he can make him appear out of the blue. The argument I'm making is that nothing really proves that Kishi will end the story when he said, other than him actually doing it. He can prolong the story or even shorten it a la Psyren.Quote:
It won't be necessary, but it doesn't mean it can't happen. There are countless of ways to prolong the story, and they don't even necessarily include fighting.
Hashirama never managed to forge an understanding and comradeship with different shinobi from different village, Gaara was able to do that (though the credit goes to Tobi). The child of prophecy seems to not matter for now, and even if it did, Naruto is still the reason why Gaara was able to inspire the Alliance to get along. Gaara's speech is important because it's a step forward in ending the cycle of hatred. You can't really deny that.Quote:
Or, it can be a combo of Gaara, Naruto, and Sasuke, if not just the former two. It's been alluded that Naruto and Gaara will play a huge role in establishing peace with their friendship. Naruto saved Gaara twice, and now they have a bond. Gaara became good thanks to Naruto and is now a kazekage who owes Naruto his life, who managed to stand up to the kage's way of thinking during the Summit and got the shinobi to work together. Oonoki (I forgot other instances) and Muu mentioned Naruto and Gaara working together pretty well, or how they were great together? I forgot the details, but I remember Oonoki stating that seeing the duo work together inspired him to do better. Gaara is basically the best spokesman for the Church of Naruto as he went from an evil, hated person to a beloved kazekage in a matter of two years, tops.
Hell, Gaara can be the one who establishes peace, and it wouldn't knock down Naruto's being the child of prophecy because he's the one who laid the foundation when he changed Gaara and saved Gaara.
I don't see how it makes sense, but okay.
STILL BETTER THAN BLEACH, KQuote:
Granted not every Tom, Dick, and Harry will get a complete backstory. However, almost all of Kishi's storylines have been resolved. At this point in the manga the only unresovled storylines are Kaguya, Sasuke, Naruto's ascension to Hokage/Godhood, and the romances. The current storyline will resolve the first two, the conclusion on the war will resolve the third. That just leaves the romances which we all know won't require another arc to resolve. Adding more villains to fight doesn't address any of these. If would be just filler as you like to say. Doesn't do anything for the story, so there is no reason to believe why he would do it.Quote:
The Gaara/Naruto bond is nothing more than an extension of Naruto's ability to convert people to his way of thinking. While Naruto has transformed Gaara into a more conisderate person, this effect will not impact the 3 other nations, just the Sand and Fire villages. Yes, Gaara made a speech, but to be honest it was very weak and lame. 'Save my friend". Really? That's all it takes to end the cycle of hate? I don't think so. Something more spectacular is needed. Naruto will fulfill this task. The question is will it be memorable to readers when all is said and done.Quote:
They don't need a complete backstory, but they need something that makes them somewhat relevant. You also forgot peace and possibly dealing with anyone who might be against the peace, as well as how they'll deal with bijuu living with humans without humans succumbing to their desire for power.Quote:
Adding more villains can add more filler. Adding Kaguya didn't really address anything either, but Kishi did it. He can make something up, like Kaguya's dad's spirit making people want revenge, and then have Kaguya's dad appear probably by using his daughter and then proceed to wreck shit, and then Naruto and Sasuke get powerups from Hamura or the Sage again. Kishi can prolong the story as he wishes, there are thousands of ways for him to do so.
This effect seems to be impacting the other nations. Again, look at how Gaara talked to Oonoki at the Summit, and how he and Naruto inspired and motivated Oonoki. Both can lead by example - two different boys from different villages became friends because they could relate to each other. Naruto didn't just transform Gaara, he changed Gaara into a caring person.Quote:
Are you focusing on just one thing? Gaara basically said that despite being enemies and wantin to kill Naruto, Naruto still felt for Gaara and saved him. He proved that enemies can turn into friends.
Of course Naruto will, but he won't do it alone.
Guys i have a theory about the Naruto vs Sasuke ending Kishi promised.
As we all saw Sasuke accepted his resolve to protect the village so now he doesn't have any reason to fight Naruto.(I think that fighting to death for the Hokage potision is a bit too much.)
So i think that we all forgot someone. Orochimaru!!!. I dont buy it that he just woke up and decided to help the village and Sasuke and all the rest.I dont buy it.I think that after the War He will still try to posess him and this is how the battle will commence.
Anyone Agree? Any thoughts?
just read it XD
to kishis :
just finish it ...
Peace was never a primary objective since the lands were at peace when the series started.Quote:
Kaguya is the physical manifestation of the Moon Eye Plan. You can't beat an idea, but you can beat a person. The introduction of Kaguya enables Naruto to physically defeat the Akatsuki's plan. You know that Naruto isn't going to "think" his way to victory. Naruto's had 3 power-ups in the last 24 hours adding a 4th isn't really going to add anything to the story. There's no need to do so since Sasuke and Naruto got powerups to defeat Kaguya already.Quote:
That's just the leaders, not the system. Naruto declared back in the first arc that we would form his own ninja way and buck the system. This battle is his conduit to do just that. What transpires next may totally fail to convince the readership. but that's how Kishi structured for this to play out.Quote:
The irony is that Naruto is the manga (or anime) that hooked me up with this genre. I have seen this once great manga going downhill and that pretty fast too. Now it has reached the point where I just follow it for the sake of seeing the ending.
They weren't totally at peace. Apparently Kumo was gathering jutsu and preppin for war or something (forgot what they said during the Summit), and war almost broke out if Konoha didn't acquiesce to Kumo's demand of a Hyuuga body. Suna and Oto were also apparently planning to take out Konoha during the exams. What about how people with kekkei genkai were treated in the Land of Waves?Quote:
You can beat an idea, Naruto has been doing that since Part I. Naruto could have defeated the Akatsuki's plan by beating Tobi (the person revealed to be the leader behind the leader) or even Madara (somehow). Most powerups haven't really added anythin to the story, but Naruto, Sasuke, Tobi, and others have gotten it anyway. I'm sure Kishi doesn't care about giving more power.Quote:
Gaara is part of Naruto's own way and desire to buck the system. Gaara changed because of Naruto's own way, and Naruto himself was able to change so many others for the better, failing only with Sasuke in Part II. He, Gaara, Sasuke, and others can establish peace without ruining the whole child of prophecy thing.Quote:
After seeing the last chapters we know lot of things now
.A lot of worlds exist in narutoworld.Kaguya showed us the trip in Sasuke rescue arc.Lava dust acid ice ect and the last chapter we saw the death world and obito cracking it thanks to his kamui
Now if Kaguya dies in this last arc we may have another series with her cracking the death world and bringing death past shinobis to life and so on.If she is sealed in this last arc probaly is over for the series.
Kishimoto said that Naruto will end this year, but what about the dream of becoming a Hokage? I want to see Naruto as a Hokage and Sasuke as the New Madara.
I read this about Naruto Project and I noticed one thing maybe its the end of Naruto Shippuden and there may be a new Naruto xxxxxx in the next year, What do you think about this?
This year? There's only 4 months left. That's like 16-17 chapters.. That can't be right?
I believe there was an article on Sayian Island that it was. Sadly :/. But you know THERE COULD BE a new series. I mean were getting a movie where Naruto is an adult. This could be the start of a new series. Like Dragonball -> Dragonball Z -> Dragonball GT. It could happen. Naruto -> Naruto Shippuden -> Naruto !#^$!)?
