Shocking news from Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of Naruto himself! Among other things, he has confirmed that Naruto will be coming to an end next year!
I don't want it to end :(
His creativity ran out years ago when Pain brought everyone back from the dead. Time to move on!
This. after that everything has gone downhill.
Way before that The Pain everything that happened during that was just older ideas completing its self but I do agree its been unbearable since then
what to watch !! I used to love naruto. now Kishimoto is just making stuff up to make the story longer. I hate to say it but Naruto must end so soon.
Finally. The war dragged on too long.
It's the last arc. To me it just had a lot of wasted potential
For a second i thought you was Tayz and thought he must been crazy since he's a crazy naruto fan. This wasnt even a war more like a play battle. How many people actually died? People hate on Bleach but a lot of people died already.
Me and TayZ just happen to have good taste in avatars but everything else...well different story.. The war isn't bad at all I just wish they could cut right to it honestly.
I dont know i didnt like the war when it became full of zombies. I like wars like One Piece and Bleach so far. I felt that Naruto went downhill after pain. It became really bad when Tobi was really Obito. The moment he became Obito again he was struggling in just about all fights.
All good things must come to an end.
About time, graduated high school college started working before this series concluded.
So? I hope Berserk gets finished before I die. I'm looking forward to the next 5-10 years of One Piece. I'm also looking forward to seeing if Kishimoto can catch lightning in a bottle again with a new project. And glad you got a job in this tough economy.
As slow as berserk Is moving we'll be in our 40s before he cures the girl
Just saying it's been a while, Gotta check out berserk tho.
Berserk lol The mangaka started a new manga, so forget that Berserk even exists. XD
I don't see how this is "shocking" news. Another arc would seem completely out of place, especially since this is clearly the climax and does anyone really believe Kishimoto could squeeze another 50 chapters of Naruto fighting Madara?
Just be happy the same people who worked on the anime for DBZ during the Frieza saga aren't doing Shippuden. They'd easily stretch the entire war into 100 episodes. Anyways, I'm kinda happy, yet disappointed and sad at the same time. Only Madara is left, but the entire war has been... Meh. I knew *Tobi* was gonna have a resolution before he died, but I seriously didn't Kishi was gonna BS us by having him be Talk-No-Jutsu'd. *His friend* should have been the one to stop him, but it had to be Naruto. For Madara, I'm perfectly fine with Naruto (or him AND Sasuke) being the one who's gonna stop him once and for all. But for the love of all things Rinnegan, please don't let him be stopped by Talk-No-Jutsu or another freaking variation of Rasengan. I'm gonna accept Plot-No-Jutsu to give him an incredible power, like a new form or new Jutsu. Just please, no more Rasengan variations. If somehow Orochimaru absorbs Madara, thus making him the REAL REAL villain, I'd be surprised and excited. I doubt he's helping the Alliance for nothing. As for Sasuke, I don't think we'll have the final battle between him and Naruto. Sure, they might fight at the end, but not a death battle. I hope if the Alliance does forgive him for trying to kill the Gokages (lol he should definitely die for this crime, but Naruto loves him too much), that he stays in Konoha, but hidden in secrecy and watched by the Anbu at all times.
I believe at the end Naruto and Sasuke will fight and it will end in some draw type of thing. They both become the Hokage to cut the history of what happen before and Naruto will help Sasuke revive his dead clan.
No, but they can do another time skip like they did with Shippuden. Just have an adult Naruto leading his own team so we can see the next generation of ninja, both good and evil.
At last... the second part of the shipuuden hihly disappointed me.
Did he forget his password for the Fan-Fiction forums he was going to for ideas these past few years!?!? (Joke!) Looking forward to the wrap up. I think it's one of the biggest challenges these artists face, and there have been a number of horrible/incomplete/unsatisfyi ng finishes. Gantz, I'm looking at you...
Nooooo I knew gantz was ending soon but I haven't checked in awhile so the ending isn't fulfilling?
now all that's left is for Oda to quit milking one piece and end it as well.
One piece has been really bad since the start of The New World. The humor went away,the fights are bad, and it has no direction. This current story with the toys and the gnomes(is that what they are) is probaly the worst the new world has had to offer, and even more boring than Fish man island(which i didn't think was possible) I don't even think Oda knows what he wants to do anymore, but i want him to get back to how he was writing before the New World, the ENTIRE damn New World.
The manga sales have been declining over the last couple years. In 2011, one piece sold 30+ million and this years its sold 18 million(still a lot but the writing can be seen on the wall)
One Piece has been doing what it has since the beginning. Heres a link to give you a bit more insight. Not saying this guy is 100% right just a well thought out opinion. http://www.youtube.com/watc... @Tyrone_Biggums A reason for a decline in sales is Ppl were buying tons of volumes trying to catch up because of whitebeard war. Things have slowed down since then.
@DEATHxTHExKIDx That doesn't make sense. One piece has been out since the late 1990s and people are trying to catch up over the last couple years? If there were 30million+ people trying to catch up because of the whitewhite war, then why aren't there 30million+ people trying to keep up with the latest manga? A decrease of almost 20 million in annual sales can only mean a general decrease in interest.
No, until Luffy and his crew fins OP, it should end yet. Naruto's a different story, that one should end soon, there aint much after all this.
It's time. There is no way Kishi could do anything after the War and the War has been getting ridiculous and it's been too damn long. Madara has gotten waaay too powerful and i don't think he can be beaten anytime soon unless NAruto becomes the Sage of the Six Paths, which i don't see happening anytime soon. I just don't want another 40 chapters of Madara.
Sucks for the people that love the show, I stopped watching awhile ago sad to see it end.
It's about time. Bleach ended awhile ago. Now Naruto. All we need is one piece to finish and then finally new ideas can flourish. I know some people are fans and want these things to go on forever. But the fact is Naruto has become so stale it's not even funny. The whole Ninja war has been especially poorly done.
Honestly, I'm just hoping that he does have a proper epilogue mini-arc at the end of it. I'd hate for Madara to be defeated and then have it end in that chapter or the very next one. With his "in 2014" statement, there's certainly plenty of leeway here for him to do something. He's wrapping up in his own time, not being hurried to the ending, so there's no excuse for an ending that's a cop-out. It'll be interesting to see what series rise to the forefront with both Bleach and Naruto winding up. It's a big generational change of the kind that many (if not the majority of) western anime fans might have never experienced before. An exciting time to be an anime fan to be sure.
Looking forward to it, its been a long and great run. Don't forget Kishimoto might start new work so look forward to that.
