Too many cliffhanders to end that way, there was a tonn of unresolved twists (Tobi didn't really step into the actions yet, Sasuke had no intention to return to Konoha, despite Naruto's mission to bring him back being vital to the plot in general etc).
Im with everyone else that there would be too many questions left unanswered. but then i thought, those questions could be answered in the next series. it could start with naruto as hokage and we would continue with his story. Im sure they couldve made it work. wouldve been weird if they had the ninja war then had the show continue on after that.
Naruto couldn't end with the Pain arc (way to much was set up), but the series felt like it didn't know where it wanted to go by that point. He went from being a story about a boys quest for acknowledgement, to a boys quest to saving his friend, to boy is now Ninja-Jesus.
It couldn't just abruptly end there as it was, like the others said. However, I think Kishimoto could have wrapped up the story more neatly in time for the Pain arc (though that would require, for example, omitting Obito altogether). Also, the final battle after Pain's invasion would still have to be Naruto vs Sasuke with their different ideologies. The story didn't have to inflate to the scale it did IMO.
Tobi shouldev had stayed tobi tbh.Not madara then actually obito.
Nah, i think Obito was fine. I mean, aside from naruto's "coolest guy" comment.
To me, the biggest problem is that Kishimoto either took too long or not long enough. That is, he should've either spend more time to properly introduce a whole bunch of stuff (e.g. six paths power, the seals, rinnegan, transmigrantion, SPSM), or he shouldn't have bothered.
Well I won't deny that things have gotten a fair amount more convoluted since Naruto beat Nagato. Not to mention I can't say I applaud the makers putting an entirely unnecessary side arc (the one detailing how Naruto's classmates finally became Chunin) right when things were finally getting interesting. All that being said I am looking forward to finally seeing the creator of ninshu (Hagoromo Otsutsuki) taking part in the series. But if nothing else I do wish the makers would stop with the mass releases already. Seriously 12+ episodes and then having to wait months for the same. Make it a weekly release, unless it's an episode string worth more hype.
