In a TV message, Masashi Kishimoto says the manga will be coming to an end soon.
i am kind of tearing up just thinking about it. so many good memories of this show and it's not over yet. i hope at least till 2015 and then many canon movies afterwards!!!!
I reckon only a couple months left and i'm kind of glad that it's ending, it has really gone downhill the last few years, it used to be my favourite manga but now it is just a shadow of it's former self
This is exactly what Bakuman told us from the begining, Jump kills the pop series. Sad :/ They should have ended after the pain Arc, if not, well at least they should have kept the Kyuubi as the renegade spirit that uses every opportunity to kill Naruto, but no, they had to go and give Naruto the power to control Kyuubi, the biggest villain of the series and now the fucking TOBI is like: hey, PEACE AND LOVE AND HAPPINESS! this is murder, they are killing Naruto with each page they publish!
Attack on titan has become my new favorite. Bleach and naruto are just terrible now. Like does every bad guy in naruto need a sob story that tries to convince us he's really not that bad!? C'mon naruto where's just plain evil at? That's why I'm loving AOT.
If you pay attention to what happens in Naruto, you would know that no one, not even the "bad guys", just comes out of nowhere automatically "evil". Everyone has something they are fighting for, unlike other "manga", there really aren't any "bad people". These are just people changed by war - which is a bit more realistic in the character development side of things.
Sorry I don't really care to know every bad guys sob story which is all the same by the way. They loved someone and that person died blah blah blah grow up! Hellsing is also one of my favorites.
SnK is not a long-running series like Naruto or Bleach. However it's better this way as long-running series usually drop in quality (with few exceptions except for One Piece for example).
We will definitely see Naruto becoming Hokage or something greater, but I want to see Naruto as an old man. It would be interesting to see how the Ninja World is after several years. Also, who is going to get to be with Sakura? LOL
That's reaLly depressing. This time next year it will be aLl over.
noooo don't say that! at least till 2015, just pray for it!! i need just 2 more years!!!
The series has been ongoing for AGES. It's actually about time they finished it.
It's time they ended it. They can only do so much with it's plot, which BTW was inspired by Hunter X Hunter. Inspiration is a fine way to start off, but when you look at some similarities between Kurapika and Sasuke, then see a huge slice of plot is built around Sasuke, you question certain aspects of the series... I enjoy Naruto, but never as much as I enjoy HXH. Sadly, the manga artist for HXH is lazy when it comes to releasing chapters...
I love Naruto and it's sad that the end is coming but it's better to end it while the story is great than to continue it with something boring and crappy.
Even if the manga is over I want them to make a Naruto GT or something with Naruto as Hokage and being married with Sakura and having kids and all that stuff. It can be one big filler but I would really like that after the manga finishes in 2015 (December 2015 :p)
Lol all we can hope for is a movie. Dec 2015 seems like a bit of a stretch but we'll see.
"Naruto as Hokage and being married with Sakura" "married with Sakura" "with Sakura" "Sakura" BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO GTFO! NARUHINA 4 EVER!
That would be the biggest insult thrown into the face of Hinata. She loved Naruto, even when everyone else despised him as a kid. And then when pain came and put Naruto on his face, every one else sat there waiting for Naruto to save the day. She was the only one willing to give her life for him. I like Sakura, but if they make Naruto join up with her in the end. I will place this Series with ranks of the most loathed anime/manga series. Looking at you Dragonball GT and Soul Eater.
LOL Sasuke totally deserves that b**** Sakura.
Good this whole thing with Obito was really lame. Lets just hope he deals with Madara and sauske betetr.
Naruto ending will be huge for me.. I started watching it when I was 18 and I'm 27 now, to see such a long running series come to an end will be sad.
But this series needs to end. It needed to end long ago to be honest. The series has dragged on far too long and many parts of it stopped making sense. It had a good run, but it's time.
Oh well, at least I'll still have One Piece to look forward to.
Wow I can't believe naruto is actually ending I remember the first time I saw naruto back when it first aired on toonami it quickly became my second favorite anime of all time. Hopefully they'll still make movies like dbz and then a returning series a few years down the line fingers cross.
Thank God. Now just waiting for One Piece to end. I know many people like these series and disagree with this, but both stole the place of many great series that could have continued but didn't just because there are some stars that shine more...
I don't see one piece ending for awhile the time skip hasn't been that long really >.<
mine favo anime is gonna end??? bummer.. I enjoyd it Love you naruto shippuuden! thanks for all those years
Pretty fitting to end it here. I wouldn't of wanted it to end before or way later starting another arc.
i need 2 more years of naruto at the very least
I bet we will still have to wait at least another decade until we get the Naruto version of Budokai Tenkaichi 3 though. I want every important and semi-important and even filler characters ever introduced to be in that game. Include characters we've had in the PS2 games that haven't had a playable role since then. Characters like Konohamaru and his team, Anko, Kurenai, Shizune the Sound 4, those JP only characters from the movies, include every present and past Kages, every Swordsmen yet, all the reincarnated ninjas, if Shizune and Karin were playable you can make Kushina playable, etc. Over 150 Naruto playable characters in Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Typhoon Maelstrom 3, believe it!
OH believe me the anime will go on for a long ass time. The anime does filler when there is no need for it. I see the anime being up for another 5-10 years.
Hopefully they end it, there is nothing else to do with Madara defeated, just like Bleach not ending with Aizen's defeat.
Well i knew Bleach wasnt going to end with Aizen defeat it was way too many questions. They kind of explained most of the plot holes in Bleach now. Either way both Bleacn and Naruto need to end soon. Next big 3 will be One Piece, Toriko, and maybe Shokugeki no Soma if Hunter X Hunter doesnt come back soon
hunter x hunter deserves it's time to shine but -_- the author is sick i think ?
I haven't kept up with the manga because it just feels like a drag. I'm glad he is going to end it soon though, this needs to end before it becomes a hot mess. Naruto has had a great run, and I'll always love the pre-time skip series...always.
I'm not really going to miss it, I would be sad if it was One Piece but naruto really feels empty now and days. There's no thrill or anything. It's flat out boring with all that friendly story telling with enemies.
End it with Naruto vs. Sasuke ultimate rematch Naruto kills sasuke and becomes the hokage and they lived happily ever after
I doubt they ever let Naruto kill. He doesnt have the heart to be honest he truly thinks he can talk his way out of everything.
This is actually positive in my eyes, they should end the show on a good note, not like many other anime, that end on a negative note, where the series is already trash.
Yeah i've been reading a lot of manga lately and its so many manga that deserves anime. Yet Naruto has a spin off something not even One Piece or Conan has and its more popular there.
