And since I'm butting in, I'd love to see some sort of prologue with Naruto at any age. 'cause honestly, the way things are going,I believe he will control that fox only one time for the very last major battle and then he'll die and be named hokage posthumously.
So it would be a treat to see the guy I started reading the manga for being cool all on his own and not spend all his time searching for sasuke, promising to bring sasuke back, wondering aloud at night what Sasuke's thinking, groveling at the feet of strangers to forgive Sasuke, and taking beat downs to quell the anger of people who want to kill Sasuke. If I can get just a little bit of story about Naruto, I won't feel so bait and switched.

I think it will be... it will show the world after current events...characters, maybe even one mission, like the last chapters of death note where N is shown kicking ass again
IMO it won't be a timeskip, at least not before naruto defeats madara. Maybe will be a timeskip and we'll see naruto as the 7th or 8th hokage.
As things are going in the manga, a Timeskip will be only a waste of time. Both main characters are almost at the same level and the table is set for their next fight.
And... I'm sorry, but for the plot to go on... Naruto can't win...
Or, if he win, he will let Sasuke go, or Sasuke will be saved (by Madara?)
And then, wars trigger and the village that are already pissed to Konoha (because of Danzou being a fucking traitor) could be even more pissed that the Jinchurikii of Konoha let an Akatsuki go free.
Then, it's the war and we get a timeskip...
During that time Sasuke get EMS and trains...
Naruto trains on his own too... (or maybe with Kirabi to learn how to control the beast...)
To be honest... the only reason why I REALLY want a timeskip is for Naruto and Sakura to change their outfit...
I hate their outfit right now...
I can't wait to see them wear something else...
That would probably be the case if the timeskip really happens.
Although I think it won't:
Sasuke can train on his EMS like he is training on his MS, and Naruto already trained for SageMode during the manga, so him controlling the Kyuubi can be done without a timeskip.
As for the war, well Naruto has to leave his naive old self, and mature more , and it would more realistic if we saw how it happen rather than wait for some flashbacks. And the same goes for Sasuke
But I agree, they have to change their outfits, Naruto at least
I think I said this already on this thread, that there will be a timeskip IMO, after naruto will reach a kageship or at least a position that will influence the shinobi world, so we could see what the world became under naruto's great vision

I hope and pray that there will be a timeskip. Narutoworld really needs a war, and if a war really is to be a real one, it has to last years. This time would be the most perfect one for a timeskip. Kishi then could return to the deciding moments of the war.
But there is only one reason why I wholeheartedly believe there will be a timeskip: Naruto is still too childish to become the revolutionary he is destined to become. We need another timeskip before he can do that.
I think that Naruto would get to age of 21 and adopt his father's haircut ,that would be nice of Kishi.
Never ending manga
Once the Akatsuki issue is over, and Danzo is fully entrenched as hokage. Naruto will leave the village as a sage to go on a walkabout like his master to spread peace/goodwill. There is less risk for him and no one can make him stay.
Sasuke will still be a threat, but laying low. All will be jouin.
When Naruto returns some of the rookie 9 will be training genin.
Im really hoping for another time skip myself. Even as strong as Naruto has become he still has a long way to go before he can put a stop to Madara. With all of the theories and discussions that are heatedly debated I think another time skip is a good way to introduce new jutsus and change characters appearances and relationship status.
I think there is evidence to conclude a time skip is on the way. It was around epiodes 130 or 140 when the LONG fillers hit in part 1. Its almost to that point now but I believe that the fillers will come in after Konoha has been rebuilt and Danzo and Sasuke have been care of.
When it comes to normal fillers I sense they are coming very soon because the anime is rapidly catching up the manga.

Not really. If Naruto can learn and master sage mode in less than a week, his next power-up (be it the Kyuubi or something else) should also take less time than this. And if Naruto has his allies helping him out, and this may include Sasuke, then the demise of Madara should come about quite quickly.Quote:
This is highly unlikely. A look into the future once the manga is about finished, can solve character appearances and relationship status' once and for all.Quote:
The way I see it, is that the remaining Akatsuki members will die like the Sound 4 died, giving the chance to see others in battle. If you noticed a few chapters back, it sounded as if the Konoha 11 were ready to take care of business. And if Naruto uses his magical character changing technique on Sasuke, he can ally with him to defeat Madara.
The issues with Danzo and Kabuto can be dealt with swiftly. I can think of a million ways for these matters to be solved within 10 or so chapters.
And lastly is the debate about how Naruto will instill peace. This can be done when the world unites to defeat Madara. And something simple can come about from this one battle. The Kage allying with each other to not allow for another case like Madara to ever occur again. Simple as that. Oh and Naruto can return back to Konoha and be announced as the new Hokage.
Timeskip? No need for it. If there is one, it will only ruin the manga. Just a quick look into the future. Like show what Naruto and co are doing after 3-5 years. For instance they can show Sakura as head medical ninja of the world, in a few panels. Things like that.
I really want another timeskip. In my opinion, I'd say the last arc of Part 2 is a 4th Ninja war where Danzou comes out victorious and turns out to be a ruthless dictator(he loves his old ways), he has Konoha in the palm of his hands apart from Naruto. Naruto leaves Konoha(how cool would it be if he became a missing-nin?In a good way I mean) and goes to train with Bee(it would be preety cool if Bee turns out to be his teacher). 2-3 years of training(Kyuubi control, element stuff etc)...he comes back all badass and with a new outfit(the cloak man, the cloak!)
And regarding other people between those 2-3 years, Madara trains Sasuke(duh) The Genin 12 have all formed an alliance like the Dumbledore's army(lol) with Sakura as the leader(she is a main character) etc.
It would be preety badass.
And the first arc of Part 3 should be Naruto and Bee travelling, Zetsu seperates Naruto from Bee and Zetsu's mission is to capture Bee, Bee get's captured and dies with Naruto being all left alone. How epic shit. Akatsuki would have 8 Bijus with only Naruto remaining. LOL
Okay, so now that we know about the 4th great ninja war...
Is a timeskip required?!
I mean, seriously, a war cannot be over in a few months, and Naruto is a very slow pace manga.
I also doubt that we will see all the war (with every Bijuu fighting, etc, etc), because that would mean that Kishi wants to continue Naruto for another 3-4 years, and I honestly doubt that.
So, the question is : Will there be a timeskip to jump right in the middle of the war?
And if there's one, where will it start, and for how long?
I say, let's get a timeskip!
Honestly, I want to see a more mature Naruto, one that experienced war and that know how bad it is.
That will only strenghten is beliefs that peace must be obtain.
And that will help him understand his enemy better (those that want peace at any cost like Pain and Madara).
And I would like to see him in a war mission (kinda like Kakashi Gaiden) alongside with Sakura.
... And, Naruto need a new outfit!!!!
