My guess is that the ending will be as crappy as the series has ultimately turned out to be: Naruto dies and Sasuke becomes Hokage as a way of atoning for his past sins, and as a way to honor Naruto's memory. Sakura dies a virgin, not having scored with neither Naruto nor Sasuke, and Hinata either also dies a virgin, being forced to live to take leadership of her bloodline but not marrying anyone, or immediately slashes her wrists at the depressing, not-even-Prozac-can-heal-this news of her beloved Naruto dying, effectively giving supremacy to the Hyuuga branch family in either case.
That's so depressing. ;-;

So.. has Naruto been a low-budget anime for awhile now? Great going Shonen Jump. You failed, AGAIN. Why? loopholes and after the anime, a never ending fanbase RRAAGGEE and fan-fics, wheras everyone dies at once ending the entire thing. *Sigh* even Star Wars comics from Dark Horse is better than this.  >_<

One mention of LEGENDS and everyone goes batshit.  :\

Yep, every time when someone mentions that game people get energized for an apparent reason whatsoever. It's like this everywhere else, trust me.

It got really messy to find my sprite and comic topic, so it's in my sig.

You should really read the thread if you aren't sure if something has been brought up already. This thread isn't that long. And yes, it has been brought up already.

You're right.

Looks like I've overlooked those posts.
Although, I actually have no access to the manga, save for the translated version on the Net.

Still, the fact that the place had been trashed by Pain is... how should I put it...
Unpleasant. I know that it has been stated previously (I read the posts this time...), but it does indeed look like the series is starting to wind down. A shame, really.

I wonder if, had the author not given in to the fan pressure, would things be written in the same manner?
Maybe if more attention had been given to Naruto and the others, maybe the author would of been able to make it last that long... [/melancholic speculation]

Does Kishimoto make chapters in advance? If not, fake. Last week was a double issue, so no jump this week.

My life is currently bears and Jojos and everything is great.

Most people DO make SEVERAL chapters in advance, to give themselves leeway to think up the others and actually make them, then submit them to the publishing magazine for mass reproduction. So I wouldn't call it farfetched that this is an actual leak.

Naruto's been a low-budget series after all. *Insert Rocket Knight Adventures event theme* on the final standoff between Naruto and a generic villan who looks like him.

Not really.  There has been one or two, but it's usually at specific physical features aside from just the hair, but that's it and it's a given, there will be characters who'll look like others.

I wonder if, had the author not given in to the fan pressure, would things be written in the same manner?

That's debatable.  The main lifeline of a manga series is by the fans and frankly, that goes for MANY other series w/ such publications needs (a tad different from a novel, but close too).  Sure there will fan service here and then, but i'm sure there have been specific things that Kishimoto will in the end have to not give a [parasitic bomb] what the fan service says (besides, who wants to look at constant negativity, if he has, Naruto would be MUCH more worse, and I mean those people who gives useless critisization, they don't have any better ideas), and not to mention most mangaka need the final permission of the editor, not the fans.  I won't deny fans will have an effect, but in the case of Naruto, I have my doubts on this and that, but OH what do I know :/, we all thrive on useless negative critisism anyways.

There also have been fancharacters who look and act like Naruto, but sport diffrent clothing and from a neighboring clan.

But as I said before, it's a low-budget manga, and as you said Cosake, the manga can live on if the fans still find intrest, but since the negative comments keep on coming, it might upset the Narutards and cause an uproar.

Oh, and the spoilers were the real deal.

this may sound like a noobish question....but does Naruto ever rely on the Kyubi's power anymore? Or has Sage mode pretty much replaced it?

He harvests the power of the fox, but doesn't actively use it anymore, not since the fox took over in the battle against Orochirapist/Orochildmolester.

I think it's because Shonen Jump's godmod land. Or something.. but yeah, I think that he has taken them down.
