Narutards Despair: Naruto “Will End Soon”


Naruto mangaka Masashi Kishimoto has revealed that Naruto is swiftly headed to its conclusion, much to the despair of fans and publishers alike.


In a recent interview with Asahi, he said that Naruto is “building towards a climax,” that its ending is already determined, and that “all that is left is a dash up to the ending.”

Just how long this “dash” to the ending will take is of course of crucial importance given the notoriously glacial pace of shonen battle manga, but on that point he is silent.

Naruto fans have misgivings, although unlike Bleach there is not much doubt that an end is in sight:

“I’m glad he is going to conclude it cleanly, but I’ll be sad to see it end.”

“I’m curious as to how it will end.”

“What’ll we do without Naruto?”

“Wait for Kishimoto’s next work please. I’d like another Naruto type battle manga, but it’ll probably be something different.”

“He can always put out the odd Naruto gaiden if he feels like making some cash.”

“He says he started off with Naruto, an orphan character people could feel sorry for… what about Sasuke, Iruka, Gaara, Temari, Kankuro, Sai, Orocihmaru, Kabuto, Sasori, […], do something for them too! There are mountains of orphans in this work…”

“What about poor Yamato, a human experiment, do something for him!”

“I guess his thinking really changed after he became a father.”

“He talks about how he wanted to depict ‘bonds’ after he got married and became a father.

That would have been just before the skip, at around volume 20?

So for the next ten years he was showing Pain’s invasion and the many trials of Kyuubi training, how interesting…”

    Amidst a bunch of naruto fans bashing bleach fans bashing one piece fans, I just thought I'd say that naruto, bleach, one piece, code geass, and death note ALL suck.

    That is all.

    I always found it interesting how white fans of naruto, bleach, and one piece don't seem to realize that they're mainly aimed at 12-year old japanese boys.

    Of course, ToLOVEru is (or at least was) shounen too. Which is awesome, because that then makes grabbing and massaging your 11-year old imouto's butt (Chapter 157 in the original, Shounen Jump manga) wholesome entertainment for children in Japan.

    at least To LOVE-ru isn't a neverending story with 500+ chapters like bleach, naruto and one piece, and i quit watching most of those when they went emo...

    aimed at 12-year old Japanese boys but not 12-year old American Boys. I think this is a big difference and is why the series is still popular inside and outside of Japan

    Except that the main fanbase of all the Big 3 in Japan is made by pepole in their twenties, particularly in the case of One Piece. Toloveru on the other hand, was a piece aimed only to young boys and kids, because of its corny fanservice and saucy comedy. If adults want something more risque they certainly don't read Toloveru, the kids that want to read something sexy and can't buy nothing but Jump do.

    To Love-Ru is an awesome manga. And I think sankaku complex mostly started writing artcles since To Love-Ru Darkness, but it was actually really ero in the days when it was in Shounen Jump too.

    Well, in that case neither the japanese do realize they're aimed at 12 year olds... or they don't care.

    There was a lot of coverage before Darkness too, both on the manga and the TV anime/OADs. Too lazy to find and link some of the articles right now though.

    Aimed at does not mean lack of wider appeal.

    You're right, they're mostly targeted at young boys but in Asia, it's very common to see adults reading One Piece.

    It's just like how in America, adults like to watch Pixar films.

    You guys just hate on them because they're popular.

    Not for choice... Adults read One Piece because they were children who grew up. Unfortunately, neither the manga nor their brains did so as well.

    Toloveru took alot of its ideas from Girls Bravo. They are exactly alike.

    couldn't agree more. toloveru and probably ichigo 100% are the only two good manga to ever come out of that magazine rag.

    Woah woah! Don't compare death note ( manga, not the anime ) to naruto and bleach just because it hit mainstream. It was almost as good as Bakuman in the manga. And for Code Geass, I guess you just can't handle the awesomeness. I pity you.

    Sigh anything mainstream = bad I guess. I mean atleast provide reasons for the hate besides the usual it sucks argument it really is getting boring that the same idiots repeat the same thing over and over again. sigh arguing is so pointless now.

    trolls no a days are getting to predictable and boring.

    I hate One Piece because of all the nakama faggotery, Naruto (Anime) because of the fillers (i might read the manga now that it is over), Bleach because it is boring. I do think code geass is one of the best anime ever made, and unfortunately i haven't seen death note yet.
    Reasons enough no to be considered mainstream hater?

    I can see why he'd hate the above but freaking Code Geass? Might as well say you hate Evangelion too.

    DEATH NOTE can't be compared by Naruto, Bleach & One Peace. That's too popular in US too.

    Look at this link, Death Note in rank 26 for a TV series :,&sort=user_rating,desc&title_type=tv_series [,&sort=user_rating,desc&title_type=tv_series]

    Ah, so it's okay for people to have flame wars for difference of opinion, but everyone must agree with Death Note. Same goes for those Geass fans, get over yourselves.

    Haha, you're probably some low dirty American douche bag who has no life but to watch 2-dimensional or asian porno. Dude, just gtfo. There are good anime out there that don't include ero-themes. So if you only watch anime for the girls, like a creepy ass fat shit, then go ahead.
