Random question: When Part 1/Kakashi Gaiden ended, did the manga take a hiatus before the first chapter of Part 2? If so, how long?

I think there's something coming out in March/April. Would that be the Bolt mini-series or the six novelizations?

There was a one-month break between those chapters, although it happened during WSJ's yearly winter hiatus, so it may not have been Kishi's intention.

I'd definitely love to see how the Narutoverse function with such modern technology now. Will be funny to see the characters using FaceScroll and Skype to communicate with each other in long distances (would have been perfect for Shikamaru and Temari when they were younger), looking up how to perform Jutsus on Youtube rather than learning them by reading scrolls, etc.

I honestly disliked the new technology thing, it ruined the ninja theme for me tbh.

If the series was still going, I'd be more eager for this, but at this point I can't say that an artbook has me hyped especially since the last one was basically a collection of previously-seen art and barely had any new images. What's with Naruto's eye though.

How far was Part 2 when Shippuden finally aired? I can see another another 2 years (90+ episodes) worth of continuous filler between 699 and 700. I'd be perfectly fine with that too. Part 2 had really horrible character development for the side characters, even worse than Part 1.

They actually are showing how Sakura and the other became Chuunin? Again, I wish I could find a single bone in my body that actually cares about that. But I can't. Their Chuunin rank means nothing of importance, and it didn't help any of them stay relevant sadly. Shikamaru is the only one of the bunch who made a decent name and career for himself. Even Neji, who became a Jonin, just became background in part 2. Well I will say Choji and Ino got some shine in the Asuma fight and the war, so that's something.

Yeah, ranks don't mean much but this has still been a pretty fun arc so far. Don't really remember Ino and Chouji shining in that, I just remember Shikamaru pretty much soloing the revenge. They had their moments in the war though, Chouji especially.

I don't know what fight you are talking about, but it's not the Asuma one. Shikamaru did not solo that at all. That fight was mainly about Choji. Ino also showed how useful she was in both that fight and the Gold and Silver brothers fight. They are the only Chunnin that really got to shine in any shape or form, not counting Tsunade Jr.

Was talking about Shikamaru [and those other guys from team 10] vs Hidan. Chouji and Ino getting their **** slapped by Kakuzu whilst Shikamaru literally goes of to 1v1 Hidan pretty much summed it up.

I love team 10, just not as much as Kishi loves Shikamaru.

Wonder why Kishi changed his mind about Sakura, he made it look like she would be a useful character during the Kazekage arc. Guess you could say Hinata got to shine during the Pain arc, although I'm not sure there has been a bigger power gap during any other fight in the series. Her good moments usually end up with her getting rekt.

That doesn't change what I said about the Asuma fight, though. Which was the fight I was talking about. Hinata vs Pain was a good Hinata last stand moment, but not a good one showcasing her abilities as a Chunnin. She got taken down in one hit. But I actually like that, because they could have made it BS where she's suddenly strong enough to stand up to a super being like Pain, but they didn't. Hinata stayed in character. Though the anime dragged the fight out longer then it needed to be.

It's true she didn't kill Sasori herself, but we should give her a lot of credit in that fight. Neither Chiyo or Sakura could have beaten Sasori on their own. That's pretty much been established by all three of them, but Sakura did pretty well destroying Sasori's Kazekage puppet.

I like to fantasize that in another universe, Sakura was very useful because Kaguya actually died instead of being sealed, and so Madara was truly the final villain, Naruto and Sasuke still were Ashura and Indra reborn, but now Sakura was Kaguya reborn, and that would have been the twistiest of all twists.

Yeah, Sasuke's not done taking over the world. By repopulating his clan he'll have a army in the future, when the Shinobi world is all at peace, Sasuke and all his Uchiha children will strike. He's playing it smart though and not lumping them all together in one spot. Now they will be everywhere. Sakura is just a vessel to hold one of his Uchia soldiers and raise it for him. Totally unaware that Sasuke is using her yet again and that she is raising Konoha's future killer.

Okay all joking aside it would probably be weird having Sasuke around any local town, village, or city. Sasuke's not trying to kill Konoha anymore, but he I don't believe he ever said he accepted it. Sasuke's probably just going to be a wandered until he finds peace with himself or some other deep crap like that.

that was her teammate and close friend and its her job as a medical ninja to help him so its hardly an achievement if ur talking about her punching kaguya she was distracted by kakashi naruto and sasuke so it was nothing but a lucky sneak attack that wouldnt have worked if it was just her

I'm personally desperate for a Bolt manga just to have more of Naruto.

I'm already 25.. There's already a disinterest to be honest.. With Naruto I was barely on just to see the end, same with Bleach. One Piece is the only one I actually still feel invested in, pretty much for the reason you stated. It was pretty clear that Naruto was ending, and so is Bleach. One Piece still got 4/5 big bads to go. Just start reading, trying to take it arc by arc. Get a feel for how these arc tend to flow. For me, I started reading when One Piece was basically in the midst of an arc, I caught up by the time the arc ended. That's in part to how long these arcs tend to get drawn out for, and in part because Oda has an alternate release schedual when compared to Naruto/Bleach considering that the author had pneunomia a while back and in general is in bad health so he gets more time off. Currently, we're nearing the climax of an arc, so you'll definitely be caught up by the time the next one ends. There's no shame in that.

It's just like Game of Thrones.. The TV-show started in 2011, but the books have come out since the early 90's and a lot of the season 1-4 content has been known for quite a while since those books have been out for 1-2 decades. I still read the books, because I thought I would be able to read the next book before the next season would air (this is back in 2013, pre-S3). I succeeded, but now I'm in the awkward position that the next book up for release probably isn't even halfway done yet.. and the books are in turn caught up by the show, which is surpassing it now. Which means that while I felt left out at one point, then I thought I was "in the know", and now I'm, with the rest of all the book-readers, turn into not knowers just as the general populace (well, with more back info, but you get the jist).

Just don't watch the animé.. It's on the ratio of 1 episode = 1 chapter.. ..or less. So you wouldn't catch up quicker.

Oh, and just don't get caught up in stupid conversations about Enel.. -.-

Same. I was upset that it ended and enjoyed the finale but I've turned my opinion around on that. I only read Bleach when it comes to weekly mangas and I don't get the same enjoyment or frustration that Naruto provided on a weekly basis. When Bleach ends I likely won't care much.

Naruto had a great run, at least until the Pain arc ended. Well the war arc wasn't 100% bad. There were some good things that came from it. I think the bad outweigh the good in that arc, but it wasn't 100% terrible.

I'm still not very excited for Bolt's generation, at least not yet. I sound like a broken record, but the only part 3 of Naruto I wanted was Naruto as a squad leader leading his own squad of Genin. And not clones of previous characters like Bolt's generation looks like. I would have given Naruto 3 different clans of difficult shinobi with different personalities that are not on board with his world peace message, and maybe have one hate Sasuke or something, just to see how Naruto handles it. They kinda did that with Sai, but in very small doses. But that was the only direction I wanted to see Naruto continue in, as there was nowhere else to go but either that or Hokage. But whatever, that's just a fanfic dream now. Instead we got Naruto marrying Hinata and having kids...that's actually another fanfic.

if naruto had his own genin squad

3. person who supports sasukes ideas of what a hokage should be and same personality as madara(yes i know this one is the most generic but it adds conflict in the group)

Naruto: doesnt want to risk the lives of his students so he accomplishes all their missions while leaving them with fodder ninjas which also causes conflict for them

I really can't see how this ending surprised anyone.

It could have ended in a lot of different ways besides the standard kids ending. We could have seen the Konoha 11 reflect on the war and how each of them grew from it. It could have ended with Naruto accepting the position of Hokage. The possibilities are endless

I never said it was surprising. I said it was a fanfic, and it was. Naruto marrying Hinata and having kids was a fanfic come to life. Frankly I'd been fine if Naruto remained single. Shipping/love was never one of his major storylines in the series. It was always Hokage, Sasuke, and then world peace, in that order. I'm not upset with how that ended, minus Sakura marrying Sasuke. Are they married, or did Sasuke just get Sakura pregnant and then took off?

What year was it when the chapter after Gaara did his speech to the whole Shinobi army release? Planning is also a part of war, so it can even be earlier. The entire 4th Great Ninja War took over 4 years though, just a few months away from taking 5 whole years.

See, this is where Kishimoto took another bad idea from Toriyama. Only difference is that Naruto doesn't abandon his family to train Kaguya reincarnated.

Exactly what I said. A fanfic come to life, more so of the shipping side of NarutoXHinata.

As far as the war arc and how long it was, I'd say it started like in like volume 55....can't remember which chapter. Maybe 54. Somebody correct me if I am wrong. The war had good moments but overall I found it lacking. The Edo Tensei zombies were a joke and a lazy excuse to not create any new villains. They had to use lores of other characters to basically make new ones, like the Gold and Silver brothers and the dead kages of other nations.

Not all of it was bad. I will keep saying that Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji got some much needed spotlight, and the Mizukage fight with Gaara was entertaining. As was Naruto vs the previous Raikage. The war for me, got bad when Madara showed up. Madara sucked the life out of this manga for me. The only good thing about him, is he was the answer to Naruto and Sasuke's powers.

I don't read fan fiction so I'm not sure.

All I can say is that I saw one of two ends. One where Naruto and Sasuke both die and the 'cycle of hatred' is somehow wiped out, or the one we got, where Hokage Naruto will work towards that.

As for the pairs, I thought Naruto and Hinata was pretty obvious from early on and most of the others were just done for the sake of classmates.

700 Naruto has only been Hokage for probably a year, maybe even much less. In the undocumented timeskip, Naruto could have been appointed Jonin and gotten his own Squad before Kakashi stepped down and passed the Hokage role to him. If the kids haven't been introduced, I would have liked to have seen that story, but telling a new story with the kids would be a much better sell. There's no predestined future, so you can take the story wherever you want, create a whole bunch of merchandise for them, even have shipping wars with them, etc. I would really like to see Konohamaru serve as Jonin leader for Bolt, Sarada, and another important character. It can essentially hide itself as kinda like a "reboot", with a much tighter focus on everything.

A spin off about kids who are just copies of their own parents doesn't sound as appealing as it did at first. Sure Kishimoto could give them some originality, but just because you like the parents doesn't mean you will like the child.

I'm not really sure what you could have done with a spin off about Naruto as a Jonin either. Almost kind of wish Kishi went through with Part 3. It probably would have had problems, but I could have been conceptionally more interesting than a Bolt spin off

Whilst it isn't great writing, none of Naruto is, I think I'm reading this manga a little differently to you. IMO Sakura's feelings for Sasuke move from childish crush to some sort of Florence Nightingale complex where she needs to fix the Sauce. I'd imagine those murder attempts only drew her in more. Before Sasuke's brain problems really kicked in he also showed some fondness towards Sakura.

Salad is the only good that came from this pairing. She's probably the only one I am interested to see in Bolt's generation for right now. But I still dislike the pairing of Sasuke and Sakura. Not because I wanted her with Naruto or anything. Just anyone other then Sasuke. I think you mentioned it should have been Lee. I'd have taken either Lee or she ramained single. I'd have taken that random ninja from the war that hit on her over Sasuke. It just made Sakura looke downright pathetic to express how much she loves a man who wouldn't think twice about killing her and attempted to kill her two times in one day! Okay, I'm done.

They can't form a rivalry. Females in the Naruto universe (much like the Pokemon universe, only it's worse there) are weaker then males. But anyway I don't see their dynamic to be anywhere near as serious as Naruto and Sasuke was. It will probably be done in comedy fashion. Because while Sarada is watching Bolt, Bolt doesn't seem to have her on his radar...yet. Those two will so be shipped when they become teenagers. I wonder who will make the first move? I wonder how their first interaction will even go? Will they be friends? Enemies? Frenemies? And I really hope they move Bolt away from being Naruto 2.0 or part 1 Naruto.

I wonder which will prevail, her Uchihax or lack of penis. What am I saying, even Sauce was a little ***** in comparison to ninja jesus, and I'm sure his son will be the same.

First of all, why are we bringing Saiyan heritage mechanics into this? Second of all, there is in fact such a thing as rivals that aren't tied to the brothers. Among other examples, Guy and Kakashi aren't reincarnations either last I checked.

I'm pretty sure Lorde was just implying that they would take after Naruto and Sasuke, not that they would inherit the brothers' rivalry.

They have to be friends. NaruSasu are so bro, their families most likely got together several times during holidays and such. What would have been the point of Naruto screaming about Sauce if he wasn't so in love with him? Sakura knows about Sarada's obsession with Bolt. Him and Shikadai are most likely bros though. There's only 1 chapter of the kids so far, so there's nothing we know about them other than they exist.

You're crazy if you think Sarada will be stronger than Bolt. The most important thing preventing that is that it's still a shonen. I'd like Himawari to be stronger than Bolt, but that has a -infinity chance of ever happening. Burrito won't ever get Talk and Plot-No-Jutsu. That was tied to Fishcake being Ashura's reincarnation...

TNJ was nothing to do with Ashura.

I'd like to pretend the reincarnation stuff didn't happen. I guess Naruto just being like somebody is too subtle for a manga aimed at kiddies.

Kakashi was fine but he lacked personality, people love that cool guy with a tormented past jazz. Sasuke was good up until he finds out about Itachi's mission, although he probably recovered with time. Liked Naruto a lot more in part one, not too keen on his transformation to Jesus Uzumaki at the end of the Pain fight, hoping he finds a happy medium in the future. Sakura threatened to become a better character but then MUH SASAUKE ruined that, although going by her part in The Last it seems she'll be taking on the big sister role, that's nice.

If we are talking about people that play a major part in Naruto's life then I prefer everybody that isn't in team 7. Jiraiya, Bee, Hinata and Konohamaru. I'd say Gaara too but I'd probably rank Sauce above him because of the bromance in the first couple of arcs.

Lorde, I can't tell when you're serious or not. Kakashi is the coolest shinobi in this series. He's the king of cool. Kakashi only collapsed like...two times that I can think off the top of my head. He got laid out by Itachi, which is fine considering Itachi's one of the strongest characters in the entire series. And he collapsed when he spammed MS. Which is good, I'd hate if he could spam it like Sasuke and Madara can, even Itachi had mortal limits with MS. Kakashi didn't get any cheap powerups until the Kaguya fight, but that fight was a cheap mess in itself. He's the only character to actually use real ninja tactics. Lives by actual shinobi laws. Managed to remain a big time player even after he got surpassed long ago. He fought the likes of Pain and Obito, even when one could consider him a old dog at this point. Kakashi is awesome. The only reason he doesn't win many of these big fights is because this series is called Naruto. And even with Naruto's uber powers they chose Kakashi over him as Tsunade's replacement.

Blame Tsunade. She apparently took over as Sakura's mentor in part 2. That's not Kakashi's fault if Tsunade's hogging her. Kakashi did play favorites with Sasuke during the Chunin exams, and I called him out on that ages ago, but it's not like he didn't make arrangements for Naruto. It's just Naruto found a better teacher then Ebisu, or whatever that guys name was.

I said he gets tired from spamming MS. He was weak after spamming MS in the rescue Gaara arc because he was used MS and he didn't have a Uchiha body or some crap like that. He got killed by Pain because he saved Choji's life from the robot Pain, not because Pain himself killed him. He played dead and Pain fell for it, then saved Choji so he could give Tsunade the info on the Pain dolls. Kakashi went out on his own terms, knowing if he used MS he'd die. That's way more impressive then half the characters in this series that don't have uber freakish powers that make them broken. So yeah, Kakashi still is impressive. The Zabuza one escaped me.

Would Oro even be a threat in Part 3? Sure over a decade has past, and that's a long time to get enough research and experiment, but he'd be against the unified Shinobi alliance and fight against the two strongest Shinobi alive in the current era. Sauce has no reason to go evil anymore now that he's confessed his love to Nard and going on about his "Muh Redemption". I'd prefer if he and Kabuto just reform and come back to Konoha, and have an entirely new villain instead. No one as strong as Madara/Kaguya/Toneri though.

Jiraiya was pretty famous. I heard more about his character then Tsunade's from other characters. Plus he was called the Toad Sage when we first meet him. But because of how we're now viewing characters he's lame without Sage Mode which he learned from toads. Therefore it's a burrowed power. He's lame. :P

I could easily call out Naruto, Sasuke, Gaara, Itachi, Madara, Orochimaru, Jiraiya, Minato, Madara, Nagato, and every Super Freak in the series, strip them of what made them "famous" and call them lame too.

Except that unlike Kakashi, several of them were actually born with their talent and didn't need an organ transplant to make them strong ninja. :x

You can't please everyone. I read in an interview that Kishi had to decrease Kakashi's screen time because he's becoming too popular, even more than Naruto. So yeah, he's loved by the majority of people, specially in Japan.

And several of them would be lame without their powers because they don't fight like real ninjas. Lame, lame, lame! Naruto without Kyuubi, Sage Mode, and the clones he had to learn? Lame. Nagato without Rinnegan? Lame. Orochimaru without his experiments and immortality? Lame. Every Uchiha without their BS Sharingan upgrades? Minus Itachi, every of them is lame. Itachi would still be a threat. Gaara without his sand? Lame. Tsunade and Sakura without their super strength and healing? Lame. Hyugas without Gentle Fist and Byakugan? Lame.

And again, Kakashi was Jonin level without Sharingan. He was never a Super Freak, but to say he's lame because he had Obito's sharingan, how is being able to stay relevant until the end of the series lame?

Edit: And yes, Besho, I remember one of the popular contest things, Kakashi won one of the first ones. Another one beside Kakashi was Sasuke.

For Ninja folks, Jiraiya is best known as the Toad Sage of the Legendary Sannin. For common folks, he's the author of the best selling Icha Icha erotic novels.

Naruto and Nagato also have borrowed powers. Just having a big chakra pool from being Uzumaki wouldn't have helped them.

Lorde, my good sis, Kakashis Sharingan wasn't DEM. As you mentioned whenever he uses it he passes out. Compared to Sasuke who can spam it, that's nothing. Sakura wasn't relevant for a long time. She fought Sasori and peaked early and would not fight again until like the war arc. Sakura was not relevant until she got the forehead thing, and even then it was nothing compared to Kakashi's Kamui.
Edit: When I say relevant, I mean in a action sense, not the actual character themselves.

Yeah. Kakashi's Kamui was OP, hence why Kishi limited him to how many times he could use it before he got Obito's hax powers at the end. Tsunade was outclassed in part 2. You have powerhouses like Raikage, who while not as powerful, had super speed on his side which makes all the difference in a fist fight. You also had Might Guy who's Eight Inner Gates makes Tsunade's strength laughable in comparison, because he almost soloed Madara himself. Tsunade was more useful as a healer then a fighter by part 2, so Sakura being on-par with Tsunade didn't mean much by the time we reached the war arc. And she still had to be saved by Naruto, Kakashi, and even Obito. I'm not trying to diss Sakura here, but she's no Kakashi. Not even close. Kakashi's Kamui on the other hand was a massive game changer to the fights. Madara himself stole Kakashi's eye simply to gain the Kamui ability. Kamui was a game changer.

LOL, your previous post was you saying how lame Kakashi is because he had Sharingan. Kakashi's MS was OP which is why Kishi limited his use of it and he could only use it once in a fight so this balanced it out so he wasn't ending fights in the blink of a eye, until we got to the war arc, where even I called him out on spamming Kamui more then he should and even said the way they used his chakra control was bs. You're only listing the negatives about Kakashi and trying to undermine what the character has achieved by simply saying he's lame or hax. I never said he was flawless, just that he's the only real ninja in the series now. You can call that lame if you want but by that definition so is everyone else in the entire series.

Everything Kakashi has accomplished was by his own merits; to say otherwise is ridiculous.

Literally the only things the Sharingan handed Kakashi was its ability to copy Ninjutsu and its ability to help him perfect the Chidori. Everything else he had to work on himself same as any other ability, so why on Earth does it matter whether his left eye is natural or transplanted? Unless you want to claim that everything Naruto accomplished via Kyuubi, and later everything anybody accomplished thanks to Chakra from somebody else (ie. Naruto and Sasuke, and Kakashi too for that matter), shouldn't be credited either.

Of course he won't get any of these by default, same as Naruto wasn't handed Hiraishin or Rasengan (until Jiraiya later taught it to him, but that's not what you're getting at) either.

The problem with Bolt (and Himawari) not having the Byakugan is that it's 100% hereditary. Whether or not he'd be OP with it (which would only be a certainty if he becomes a carbon copy of Naruto ability-wise) is irrelevant.

If he wanted to come up with a good explanation for why Bolt and Himawari don`t have the Byakugan, he could have just said it was recessive.

Meh, I dislike DBZ with a passion, despite enjoying Naruto. Naruto isn't the worst ending yet. The things I named are way worse the Kaguya. Madara was broken as anything, and Sakura's forehead powerup was way worse the Kakashi's limited time Sharingan. At least Kakashi had been in action all this time. Sakura sits on the sidelines and then I'm suppose to believe she's on par with Naruto and Sasuke because she gets a smudge on her forehead? That was a load of Tauros droppings right there.

Not exactly on par, but of that same level of powerful. They directly referenced them as the new Sannin for a reason. And while I have no problems with making Sakura that powerful, I actually would love that. The problem is the power got zero buildup. Naruto and Sasuke got years and years of development to get to this point. They could have at least shown Sakura working on the jutsu with her forehead or mention she's having trouble storing it. It comes out at the most convenient time when Team 7 reunites. The whole storing chakra in the forehead thing has got to be one of the most lazy executions of a powerup I have ever seen. Imagine if everyone could become powerful but just sitting on their butts and storing chakra. This is why I wanted Sakura as a awesome genjutsu fighter rather then a Tsunade clone. Tsunade's cool and all, but a genjutsu shinobi would have made Sakura way cooler. I only complain because I do like Sakura and she deserved better treatment/buildup then this lazy excuse of a powerup. This was worse then any Uchiha powerup, and you all know how I go off on the plot power of Uchiha's...minus Itachi. Itachi's the only Uchiha I never complain about.

Edo Tensei Itachi? I feel pretty much the same way I do with all the other zombies. But I have to admit something. I did enjoy Naruto and Killer Bee vs Edo Tensei Nagato and Itachi, and when Itachi joined them to subdue Nagato. That was almost like one of those dream matches you can only see if you play them in a Playstation/Xbox game. But in general I didn't complain about Edo Tensei Itachi because I knew Sasuke was going to get powers that surpass him and with Madara running around dropping meteors on people, Edo Tensei Itachi almost looked harmless in comparison. Itachi's new hax powers I guess goes along the lines of Kakashi's hax power.

Also live action Naruto? Is Haku going to be played by a girl as she should.

Personally thought the edo tensei was a pretty okay way of having the wrongdoings of the past literally beaten out by the current gen. Zombies and Zetsus weren't the most interesting enemy but it would have defeated to purpose to have current generation ninja on the other side. Could have had mercenaries but that would neither be interesting or too believable.

Madara attempting to go sage of 6 paths, naruto and sauce being literal reincarnations and those powerups that went with it and kaguya weren't good. It should have ended with Madara being beaten.

Also as for the complaints about Chouji and Karui/Sai and Ino. They were all kids in the manga, it is safe to assume that some people would find their partners as adults, you know, like in real life. They both fit Kishi's Yin and Yang personality types for relationships so I can't see anything wrong with that. Also after his baller war performance I'd imagine Chouji could have had his pick.

The Sakura/Hinata thing was kinda sad. As stated, both really didn't do much overall, but Sakura at least had the potential to become a good if not great character if they moved her away from Sasuke's crush and...oh I'm just beating a dead horse now. No wonder Hinata's marrying Naruto.

The thing that interest me the most right now about that was what he said about Itachi. When he first showed up he already planned to make him a secret good guy. This kinda explains something I always wondered in part 1 when Itachi and Kisame confront Naruto and Sasuke in that hotel. When Kisame mentions that the Uchiha clan was killed by Itachi, both Sasuke and Itachi looked unpleased. I was always somewhat surprised Itachi cared. This also explains why he didn't just kill Kakashi, Kurenai, and Asuma when he went to the village, even though he could have silently killed them all with MS before Guy scared him off. Interesting. Very interesting.

I'm honestly pretty sure that Kishimoto already admitted to that being his plan from the beginning some time ago. Either that, or Itachi being designed as a secret good guy from the beginning was so widely believed that I simply took it as fact. Either way, I wasn't surprised to see him say this.

By part 2 it was more obvious there was a swerve with Itachi. I could tell even with the fake one. But his first ever appearance in the village hunting Naruto? I did not think he was a secret good guy. Nothing really an truly implied it, but that's mainly because the character was still unknown and we only got his backstory at the end of part 1, and even then I don't believe anyone who will say they knew from the start Itachi killed the Uchiha clan because they were plotting a hostile take over.

Don't get me wrong, I wasn't saying he was an open book from the beginning. But between (like you said) him not killing the Jounin and the mystery of why he spared Sasuke, there was definitely grounds to look back on Part 1 after the fact and see that there were signs that Kishimoto planned for Itachi to not be an antagonist from the beginning. For me those instances weren't really suspicious at the time either.

Neji was born into the series to give Hinata a sad backstory and killed off to give her a happy future, JUST LIKE POTTERY. A needless death as he could have literally just had Naruto notice, but Kishi isn't a good writer so oh well. Still not sure how people genuinely saw Naruto ending up with anybody but Hinata though, especially post fake confession.

Sakura was wasted potential, or maybe the Kazekage Rescue arc just got my hopes up. I really wish she went to Kurenai during the timeskip to get some advice on genjutsu, it would have been a far more interesting fighting style than punching things really hard. Also her final powerup was kind of bs, I guess Kishi had to give her something to bring her level slightly closer to two guys that had just gone into jesus mode.

Neji was so unimportant by the time of his death, it really made no difference in the end. Sad but true. Neji wasn't a big player in part 2 like he was in part 1. So for me it doesn't matter the reason why Neji was killed off. It sucks because I liked him, but Neji wasn't getting any spotlight in part 2 and was just like all the other Konoha ninjas not named Naruto and Sasuke, background fodder.

I meant the Konoha 11 really, my bad. That's true about Shikamaru though, I forgot about him. But beyond him, none of them felt important. Kakashi somehow staying relevant for as long as he did was impressive, especially when the Uchihas outclassed him in Sharingan abilities. I found him more relevant then the Hokage...or any of the kages for that matter. Though Onoki and A got to show off how powerful they were. Too bad Mei didn't get to show off more of her lava jutsu. But anyway back to the Konoha bunch, this is why Neji's death was not as big a impact as it should have been. You were never going to see Neji anymore after he died, but how was that any different then the rest of part 2? The lack of Konoha 11 in part 2 was very disappointing for me. At least Team 10 got the Asuma fight in the war for Ino and Choji to at least show off what they could do.

You are clearly grumpy but you do have a point. The fact that Kishi literally forgot the Byakugan is kind of annoying. From the preview pic it would appear the only thing he has gotten from thr Hyuuga is a smug demeanor. He did hint at a 3rd kid though, expect red hair and Byakugan.

Whiskers are like part of the Naruto trademark, it's been 15 years, deal with it.

Maybe Sasuke's getting random girls pregnant on his journey. I don't know. Personally the revival of the Uchiha Clan is a scary thought. I've said it numerous times a army of Sasuke's and Itachi's would be the end of mankind.

As far as the whiskers, I know why Naruto has them, doesn't mean I have to like them. I always hated that about Naruto's design. I hate it even more on his kids. Bolt is just part 1 Naruto with slightly bigger hair in a different coat. Still wish he had the Kushina hair. Ever since I saw Naruto in Kushina's hair I wished he got that style of hair. Sorry Minato, but Kushina's hair is cooler then your Volkner hair...even though you were invented before Volkner. But anyway, I never liked the whiskers.
