Man i don't think there will be a time jump and naruto could use a small number of clones to avoid himself being turned into a frog
if hes smart enough to remember
i think after naruto complete the first stage of senjutsu training sasuke beating pein i think we will get a time skip of a year
tsunade sending a dieing message to pa telling him not to let naruto leave until he has no more to teach naruto
why will sasuke fight pein. whats your reason for a one year time skip, do you seriously think that naruto will agree with that and most importantly konoha can last that long.
kakazu underestimated naruto and got owned because he didn't bother to figure out naruto's weaknesses and strengths. what makes kakazu assume naruto can't think of strategies if he can perform a jutsu he himself said was monstrous? (in the battle kakazu only assumes he has to keep an eye on the real one.....they are KB they are all identical ). because kakazu underestimated naruto he got owned, because diedara assumed naruto couldnt hit him he got hit, because kabuto underestimated naruto he got hit by the rasengan. none of these ppl bothered to figure out what were narutos strengths and weaknesses what were the secrets behind narutos techniques, etc.
when jiraiya saw the black fire from the amaretsu (sp) he immediately sealed it for information gathering of future use. secrets are what win battles, when the fighters don't bother to figure out weaknesses of other ppl it turns into power battles, however within these power battles we still see the one who gathers information on the other enemy he wins. for example in the naruto and sasuke fight (valley of end) sasuke notices that he can predict naruto's movements by examining naruto's muscle movements with his sharingan. the garaa and naruto fight, gamabunta notices the weakness to garaa's technique, which is what leads to naruto's victory.
hence for pein to say if jiraiya knew the secrets to his abilities he would have won, is obvious and goes without saying.
this is just my opinion, true to many ppl it may seem like crap and to others they might agree; but its still just my opinion. i refer to the manga to support my opinions as these opinions were built from reading the manga. i don't agree with other ppl out there but i still respect their opinions, the same goes to your views on this. but just because you think your opinion is correct doesn't automatically make you correct and other opinions wrong. i'm not petty enough to waste my time just to "argue" with someone who is a stranger, i write my posts because i respect your post and i feel i should reply to it.
I think there will be a time skip, but not soon. What first made me think this was Kybuto/ Orch. when I first brought this up many said that he was going to be one of the tails. I could not argue with that, but now we know he is not and does not look like he fits in the story anywhere. Moreover, there is also that looming threat that has been mentioned by Jiryiah and Tsunada "Donzoh". We might fit in this story with Madara, but not yet it seems. Madara may have used the relationship with Pein to get his hands on the Kubeis and Akatuskies just being the first step in his plans. There is just too many enemies that we have not seens fight and I have a feeling more that we will see fight in the future. Moreover, the statement made by Jiryiah that Naruto was not ready, but Kakshi was, is a major sugestion that there will be a time skip. If he does become Hokage there will be a timeskip becuase it just would not look good to go from one Hokage to another so soon. There looks like there will be a civil war, Kybuto, and the question of what Madara will do if Pein dies. things will change in Rain. However, if there is a timeskip it will not be about gaining more power, but about Naruto solidifiing that his status as Hokage. This Manga is about him geting to that next level, the next could be about him passing it.
I think a timeskip would be apropiate because we would get to see the characters in their childhood, teens, and adulthood.
There's no escaping it. At a point or another there'll be one. Kishimoto follows the DBZ Model... and The story start with a young boy that we must see grow into a strong and respectable person. Unless we want to spend 20 years of our lives seeing him grow inch by inch... there will be a timeskip. For me there's probably 2 timeskip left until the manga ends. the first part was telling the story of his childhood, the 2nd is talking about his adolescence, the third will be in his debut as an adult and some new challenges and 4th and final timeskip will probably be in his late 20 When the story ends.
I Believe that this manga will last a long time, just like One-Piece and DBZ. Not Because I Want to, but 'cause He said in an interview that he plans to make his manga even longer than Drangon-Ball-Z. And personally I Think it's a good thing. We haven't seen Uzumaki's true foes yet. let me explain :
Akatsiki is set up for him to succeed were his ancestors couldn't <--- The 1st didn't successfully kill Madara and now he's a threat to Konoha yet Again <--- The jutsus the forth wasn't able to complete <--- Jiraya didn't Manage to kill Pain... what I'm getting at is, Just like Goku killed Freeza, wich no Sayan was able to accomplish befor him, Goku defeated the past, the man who killed his father and Planet. After that, we got into more exiting adventures, that dealth with the present and was implying Goku directly, Rather than a distant Past-Foe who didn't seem to go Down. But of course Naruto's Story is Hugely different from DBZ <-- Plot wise. But the lengh and purpose are closely the same. Since Kishimoto follow Akira Toriyama's footsteps, I Strongly beleive that after the Akatsuki-Era is done for, We'll have more exiting story from kishi. After Naruto Gets rid of Pein and Madara, He would solve problems from the past and get the answers he needs to continue his struggle to be the strongest Hokage ever, wich will lead to more exiting adventures.
A timeskip is unavoidable... its helps the story to achieve its course and purpose. Would you imagine Kishimoto showing us naruto training for 2 and an half year? that would be insane... Some people would've stopped reading the manga for sure.

Senjutsu,Full Control over his fuuton,a new element maybe few techniques of jman and Minato,His Heritage,new element(probably water) and inventing his own unique style which i predict it to be something like the combination of jman and Minato's style.
And to do all of these things we will definitely need 1 or 2 timeskips....(Just like Adamant Dragon said i see 2 time skips happening)in the first one we will see a new naruto who is more like his father and the end of akutski and the 2nd one we will see him struggle with his new enemies and i would love see our hero in anbu it would be really cool...and Finally Hokage!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I was talking to a friend about this and I think that is possible that there could be another time skip coming our way. At the moment Pain is completley ruining Konoha and with the backing of ROOT and most likely the two elders/advisors , Danzou is very likely to become the next Hokage. Once all of the things with Sasuke, Killerbee etc are finished it would be a nice way to end this current part of the story and would open up a window of opporunity to another timeskip where we could see a heavily militarized rebuild of Konoha under Danzou's rule. I think it's very possible. What do you think?
yup I see that too... i think the time skip will happen in 2 years...
although i think it will be a small time skip, not like the 2 years and 6 months ...
i think it will be maybe a few months skip...
anyway a timeskip is surely call for after danzou take over konoha
Yup Completely agree with u.
Im thinking like 2.5 year where is uber badass.
Yup. I agree as well. Though it's probably a month or two. I don't really see the time skip to be too long if it really happens.
I agree, there is going to be a definite 1 or 2 more TimeSkips before Naruto is all wrapped up.
The next one shouldn't be too long and will probably have to do with Danzou coming to power after the fall of Akatsuki.
6 months to a year for this one... then another 2-4 year one when Naruto and the others are the Upperclassmen so to speak.
