  • Kaihedgie

    It’s been quite the wild ride

  • urbanscholar

    Well I got to say this at least…believe it!

  • Jeremy Noble

    This is a very very big deal for me. The final movie coming out on 12th December will be a hard one to watch the end credits of knowing that’s the end of Naruto.

    • Stranger On The Road

      I grow up with the bloody thing; I’m still trying to get over not having Bleach anime every week. To think that in the near future Naruto is going to stop…

      :,(

      • I faithful watched Bleach every Wednesday. Hope this final arc gets animated.

  • James Enk

    i am happy it’s ending, i think naruto was a good story and if they give it a great conclusion i won’t ask for anything else

  • Suicunesol

    Hoooo… maybe I should pick this back up. I stopped around when Gara became Kazekage of that desert village.

    • charles

      Lol you’ve got quite some catching up.

    • Harvey Tejada Loto

      lol

    • Pedro Tavares

      You are going to be very very very very bored of chapter and chapters and cahpters of Sasuke glorification and then boring shit till the end(aka current chapter).

  • Shady Shariest

    Fiiiiinally.

  • CptPokerface

    Damn. Shonen anime and Manga sure are made to last.

    If one piece ends sometime in this century I’d be impressed. I don’t even think Luffy even remembers what it was he was looking for in the first place, all the side tracking that goes on.

    • Stranger On The Road

      perhaps I’ll start watching One Piece; I think I only watched the 1st 4 of 5 episodes.

      • CptPokerface

        Be prepared. There are hundreds and hundreds of episodes..that’s not even an exaggeration. It’s an extremely long road you’d be going on.

        • Beta

          To be precise, with Saturday’s episode, it’s exactly 664 episodes so far.

          • CptPokerface

            And I thought Bleach was crazy with it almost reaching 400 episodes..

          • Beta

            Well, they stall much, but they were all worth it for me when I reach the final few episodes of each arc XD

          • CptPokerface

            I felt it was worth it with Bleach. .kind of. I..I can’t even fathom catching up to an anime with 664 episodes. Can hardly even tell what’s filler or not because the plot is always crazy.

          • Beta

            Actually, I started watching One Piece when they had already reached over 606, but I caught up with them once they reached around 650, so it’s not that hard. Especially that One Piece hooked me up to the point I watched over 15 episodes in one weekend day X”’D
            As for filler, One Piece is actually pretty good with fillers. The fillers, imo, are are well done (except those few episodes that popped every now and then that put Luffy and his friends in a historical spin-off thingy, those were boring for me). Also, you can easily avoid fillers by checking the Wikia after every arc to see if there are any fillers. I think there are around 100 filler episodes overall, but they are easily avoided since they are between arcs and never they take over 10 episodes.

          • CptPokerface

            True. To be honest I’m just not into one piece anymore and don’t have the energy or even the time to do all that, haha.

            Glad it’s still good for the people who still like it.

          • Beta

            Yeah, OP is never really meant for people who don’t have the time or enough patience XD

          • CptPokerface

            Normally I have a lot of patience…just not with my anime. A shame too because when I first saw it I really liked it. I was also twelve then too and it’s still going on soo..yeah.

          • Stephen Mc Devitt

            What about a Bleach Kai? After it’s final arc, the series could be re-aired with all the filler episodes cut out and then have new material for this 1000 Bloody War arc.

            To be honest, I lost interest near the end of the Bount arc and I prefer to remember Orihime as a cute but happy idiot.

          • CptPokerface

            After all the full bringer stuff I just don’t know I even want to go back. It was good enough the first time through but again?

            I will say that the zanpakuto rebellion arc I always liked, even if it was all filler. Got a little soul Eater in my bleach and I loves me soul eater

          • Surprisingly Bleach is one of the few animes that has good filler.

          • CptPokerface

            I feel like it’s hit and miss. My only real problem with it that it constantly cut into the Arrancar saga. Though I suppose it was nice for that one filler arc to go into how Aizen planned everything.

          • That was random as hell to have filler cut into a major fight. Which arc are you referring to about, Azien? Ah, the turn back pendulum.

      • Carlos Fernandez

        One thing to be aware of. Even as a huge fan myself, I will say this without hesitation. One Piece has the weakest start between the Big Three. It’s start is very slow… After you get to the Arlong Arc, episode 31, things pick up BIG TIME.

        • Yes, the pacing of Op can be annoying at times.

        • Stranger On The Road

          thanks, will keep that in mind, the slow start is what made me stop watching :-)

      • WyattEpp

        Just read the manga. The anime has way more filler than any shounen show has a right to.

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      You mean The Grand Line? Does he still say he’s gonna be King of the Pirates?

      Berserk will likely last longer. We’d be lucky if the epic ends by the time we’re all old, bald and have false teeth.

      • Of course Berserk will last longer. We get like one chapter every 5000 yrs.

        • Stephen Mc Devitt

          How many years will it take before we see Guts finally killing all the bad guys?

      • CptPokerface

        I never even hear it being mentioned anymore. World government, secret weapons of mass destruction, broken boats, a lot of crying and screaming. .

        That’s basically all I know about One Pierce at this point.

        • Stephen Mc Devitt

          Manga should not be that long, I’m sorry but more than 20 years? I don’t care how good they are, the only stuff I know that drag on too long for decades is The Simpsons and most British soap operas that have been going on for 50 years, which is strange ‘cus my mum keeps watching them without thinking about some sort of continuity lock-out.

          If I wanted to make a story, I would write the beginning, the end, then the middle, maybe take 10 years but not 20. I just can’t.

          • British_Otaku

            Stories can be long as they need to be. What is important is that they are good (hopefully) and both Berserk and One Piece are living up to that.

            You want to tell a shorter tale? Fine. I’ll be pleased to see something I can finish in an afternoon or an otherwise short amount of time which is good, but circumstances slow down Hunter X Hunter + Berserk from finishing (video games, hiatus and illness), while One Piece is just a vast story.

            Those long running stories you excuse range from being anachronistic to a degree greater than Detective Conan to an ongoing drama with not much worth. >_>

          • CptPokerface

            People still love One Piece to pieces. And because it’s about “adventure” that means it can go on almost indefinitely. Apparently it ISN’T about him becoming King of the Pirates like he said way back when. Least it isn’t any longer.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Sorry. Luffy is not obsessed with One Piece in the first place, that’s not his goal. He wants ADVENTURE.

    • Pedro Tavares

      He isn’t sidetracking, Luffy is an adventurer, he goes to an island and lives and “adventure” and thats how One Piece will alwyas be.

      • CptPokerface

        So all that King of Pirates talk was just..talk. Well at least all this other stuff makes sense now.

        • Pedro Tavares

          Do you actually read the manga? this is an adventure manga, part of him being the pirate king is the journey, going into different islands and adventuring/finding treasure, etc thats what I meant.

          • CptPokerface

            I used to a long time ago but I just lost all interest to be perfectly honest. Doesn’t matter, people still like it which means it’s still doing what it’s supposed to do.

  • Wallahby

    The Naruto manga went to shit with this arc, good thing that it’s finally coming to an end.

    • This arc? A good majority of Shippuden is just bad.

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        Up until Pain Arc was decent/good.
        Then when enter the war, it went to s**t

        • There are certain segments in Shippuden that I throughly enjoyed, but overall part one is better imo.

    • LightningFarron19

      I think you mean “Uchiha Arc”, right? It was bad when Deidara pulled a “Nuked The Fridge” on Sasuke Uchiha and it all went downhill from there.

      The sad part is that the Naruto vs Sasuke fight is only 5 chapters long. Kaguya’s fight (Big Bad 1 dimensional Demon Milf) had 11 chapters dedicated to her. So Sasuke and Naruto’s fight is shorter than that of a filler villain.

      The worst part is that it’s not like Dragon Ball GT or the Final Fantasy direct sequels/spinoffs either. At least with those, you can ignore them and focus on the source material (DBZ and FF number titles). This entire Shippuden story arc from Uchiha Arc onwards IS THE SOURCE MATERIAL. This is what people are going to look back on and say “So that was the Akasuki’s big plan” and “So that’s what happened to Obito” and “So that’s how Sasuke and Naruto finally made up”.

      All of it was garbage for years.

  • Beyond Naruto, what will Kishimoto do next?

    • Tiduas

      That’s the interesting part! :D

    • Harvey Tejada Loto

      naruto 3

      • The Tales of Ramen Uzumaki. Naruto’s son. Oh, the ships.

        • Harvey Tejada Loto

          lol ramen uzumaki

        • Stephen Mc Devitt

          Hedgehogs eat their own babies.

    • Grumpy Drizzle

      He did mention he wanted to draw a sports manga in the omakes.

    • Jaku618

      Probably some one shots like Mario or shorter series.He could make that ramen manga he always wanted.

  • fyi1191

    Aizen Sousuke needs to make a cameo in this.

  • charles

    Why’s no one talking about his new look! I wonder if any of this will be cannon in the manga. New Shirt*, new haircut, older it seems! I’m excited and sad at the same time.

    Edit: Thought he was wearing an akatsuki shirt for a second haha.

    • Carlos Fernandez

      I think because no one has anything to go on, and the movies are never canon in most series. So its usually not worth the time to argue it. I may be wrong though, but that’s how I see it.

  • Txu Zai

    Finally over! Been following since the start, was a teen when it started and now i’m a freaking adult and its still going lol, could’t stop though as i had to see it through to the end.

  • WyattEpp

    And there was much rejoicing!

  • So it’s ending in what, seven chapters or so… wow. The fight between Naruto & Sasuke will be rushed then.

    • 3PointDecoupage

      Well, they cant show sex in a kids comic.

      • Kishi can always end the fight with a french kiss.

      • piichan

        Sasuke will be an angsty tsundere to naruto till the end

        • Not sure if this is true, but I read in 2012 Vegeta was ranked 11th I believe in a Tsundere poll.

    • ET-Kubo

      Maybe there will be like “special chapters” with like 40 pages but oh well, that Last movie is smelling like an epilogue to me so they might me saving something for that.

  • Stephen Mc Devitt

    Sometimes good things need to come to an end, not that I care for Naruto to begin with. Sure, it had some really cool moments, and fun characters here and there, but the way ninjas are portrayed is shameless and Sasuke’s excessive angst is not fun.

    At least with Fullmetal Alchemist and Hellsing, they didn’t drag on for too long, thus, each having early anime adaptations, popular enough to receive more faithful ones later on in the years.

    • Pedro Tavares

      Yeah Naruto isnt a good thing since the timeskip and I agree with people sauing whi is this here when this is a videogames website?

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Likely because most gamers would about many things outside video games, it’s as bad as how IGN always talks about tv shows with known brand names like Doctor Who, anything Marvel and DC-related or Star Wars.

        There’s point in pointing it out at this point, sorry for being redundant there. I mean what’s new?

    • British_Otaku

      Hellsing was 10 volumes which is average length or less for a serialised work and FMA’s 27 volumes is a long runner for sure even if it is half of Naruto or less… That is just like Naruto is half of JoJo.

      You do have a point that their adaptations were concise at the very least.

      • Aaron K Stone

        At least FMA was mostly well paced making it not feel like a drag.

        • British_Otaku

          Arakawa is a genius of sorts, I hear. A long manga doesn’t need to be a poorly paced one, but when it is weekly and not well planned… You get what a number of weekly long runners end up becoming.

  • Tenshiken

    The sooner CyberConnect 2 can get back to making .hack games, the better.

    • Stephen Mc Devitt

      You wish. Have you not seen all those modern Dragonball Z games?

      • Tenshiken

        What does that have to do with CyberConnet2 though? Battle of Z was developed by Artdink and Xenoverse was developed by Dimps.

        • Stephen Mc Devitt

          I don’t know, maybe they’ll make games based on One Piece or something.

          • British_Otaku

            One Piece has been nearly exclusively handled by Ganbarion since the PS1’s Grand Battle to date (Unlimited World RED and Super Grand Battle X).

            It is likely that Bamco will keep them to their own “series” to some extent.

        • British_Otaku

          CC2 will probably continue to be the first company, Bamco call up for Naruto games for a good while.

          Dimps and Spike were also hired for extended periods of time after the series ended though most Dragon Ball games before the manga/anime ended seem to have been in house or by TOSE.

          Why would they change hands?

        • He’s saying that the manga ending doesn’t mean CC2 won’t make Naruto games anymore, as evidenced by the numerous Dragon Ball Z games that continue to come out. The Dragon Ball manga ended in 1995, but it’s still a relevant and active video game franchise. It’s possible that even after the Naruto manga (and eventually the anime) ends, games will continue to be made to tap into a market that wants them.

    • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

      As much as I’d like that to happen, they’ll probably still be making Naruto games for awhile to bank in on the series’ stride.

      Shame, since I’d love for them to focus on Strelka Stories/Little Tail Bronx or more .hack.

    • Herok♞

      You know if CC2 wanted to make more .hack games they would have.

  • TheBlackKnight3

    How is this related to video games? Not trying to be mean but I though Siliconera was supposed to be “The unseen side of video games” and this seems kinda unrelated.

    • They have covered anime & manga related stuff before.

      • TheBlackKnight3

        That’s not really an answer. I just feel like this site would benefit from some partitioning. Sometimes I don’t like having to sift through all of the stuff to get to what I want.

        • Pinwheel

          By “sift through all of the stuff” you’re referring to what is basically one of maybe four or five (if that) articles relating to anime in the past thirty days, right?

          • TheBlackKnight3

            Hey man, I’m just trying to offer the site some constructive criticism, and seeing if others would agree. Fact of the matter is that the mapping is outdated and disorganized. Whether the people at Siliconera have the means to deal with that is up to them. You don’t need to get defensive about me trying to make some suggestions that would make me want to go to this site more and possibly bring in new gamers.

          • M’iau M’iaut

            Our articles always include links to related content in the text itself and at bottom. The top of the main page also has dividers one can click.

    • Mila

      Oh please , many sites does that even IGN themselves -_-

      • TheBlackKnight3

        Yea, but this site is better than IGN.

        • M’iau M’iaut

          We cover many things related to gaming. Naruto has been a very successful IP with their games so of course there is major crossover.

  • Go2hell66

    Wish they’d end bleach.

    • bleach won’t end until the plot makes literally no sense

      so technically it should’ve ended several years ago

      guess we’re stuck with it forever.

      • Bleach would have literally made no sense to end it right after the FK arc. Kubo has done a good job at answering questions in the final arc that have been considered plotholes by viewers for yrs.

        • zferolie

          But he is making even more plotholes, screwing over other characters, and just going insane with some of these quincey powers.

          I used to love bleach, and while I am happy with some of the answered questions(like seeing Yachiru fight), ever fight goes the same way. Someone does a power, then explains that power, then the other counters that power with an even greater power. This either finished the first one or repeats from step one until someone dies.

          Bleach though is at it’s best when it has comedy. The whole part with Orihime in that new outfit, and Yorichi punching Ichigo for being an idiot for not complimenting her outfight, was gold. Bleach should have more funny parts, Kubo is great at that.

          • As a Bleach fan I can’t & won’t deny that it has plenty of problems, my biggest as you have stated characters getting screwed over. The way Kubo handled the Unohana situation is one my least favorite moments of the series. I do miss the comedy aspect of Bleach.

            “ever fight goes the same way. Someone does a power, then explains that power, then the other counters that power with an even greater power. This either finished the first one or repeats from step one until someone dies.” Shounen 101.

          • zferolie

            How they screwed over all the Hallows(Where the hell is Nel?!) And Matsumoto and Hitsugai killed off screen, and don’t even get me started on the 4th captain.

            Ok yeah that is every Shounen, but it seems like it happens even more in bleach, with people out right explaining their powers, instead of people discovering them as the fight goes on. One piece they don’t always explain it, and most of the time a powers weakness is discovered through the fighting, and the power is more show then tell.

          • By hollows you mean Vizards? Hitsuguya is still alive. Mayuri cured him and left him there. Other characters are MIA. As far as Op they do more or less explain abilities. Sometimes fights are won on cliche nakama plot.

          • zferolie

            YEah them and the Arancar like Nel and The others. We saw the leader lady(the dark skinned one) Is in bondage somewhere.

            Not sure if you can call being Mayuri’s puppet cured or not.

            And they are won that way sure sometimes, but its not all the time

    • Lilburrito

      Ok can you guys PLEASE tell me what’s wrong with Bleach? Yes I know the chapters are usually short and nothing much really happens in them but you guys are acting as if they’re beating a dead horse.

      • Pedro Tavares

        Nothing happens, its a soup of blandness, story makes no sense, the amount of bullshit and nonsense in Bleach is just gigantic.

        Ichigo is also one of the worst main characters ever.

        None should tell anyone what Bleach issues are it should be obvious, unless someone is blinded by fanboism

      • zferolie

        It’s obvious Kubo has been making shit up as he goes. He had a perfect ending with the Eizen arc end, even if there was SO much unanswered, but brought it back with horrible characters with the bountos, and every one of these Quincey seems to be random made up powers. What happened to all quincey were archers?

        I still read it of course but only because I have for so long and I hope I’ll get to see Orihime kick some ass (and for Yachiru to return)

        • How was Aizen a peferct ending when ending it with him doesn’t explain the events of the rest of the series? Kubo had nothing to do with the Bounts, those are filler characters. It has already been established that the new breed of quincy are different than the pervious generation. They still have bows just extra power to boot. It’s no different than the Shinigamis wielding swords that have unique powers instead of scythes.

          • zferolie

            Whoops, my bad. I meant, what, the fullbringer? The people that came after Aizen?

            I am happy they are answering stuff, but it just feels like stuff is slipping in quality as he answers stuff

          • Yeah they came after. I didn’t care for them either.

        • Shippoyasha

          Say what you will about Kubo, but at least he makes it entertaining. He just needs to rein it a bit more in his future manga project. But he has some talent for making interesting characters.

      • Tronytony

        “you guys are acting as if they’re beating a dead horse.”
        They are.

  • Ixbran

    FINALLY!

  • Sperium3000

    God, finally! Goodbye, so long, thanks for all the memories, don’t hit your head on the door, don’t forget to write, don’t forget to NEVER RETURN.

  • Blati. Boyu.

    To End for now, you guys can be sure there’ll be a Naruto Next Generation of something, especially since they’ll be all adults in the next movie.

    These guys are going to be the main characters since the one in charge of the manga said that he want to add them into the manga.

    http://oi58.tinypic.com/2aer1pj.jpg

    You’re all so naive if you think the Naruto universe is done for good.

    • You shouldn’t be calling other people “naive” just because there’s a chance that the Naruto universe could be continued in some way, but thinking that these characters will be added to the original with no actual confirmation… If you’re going to post such things please link to a source, otherwise it’s just a rumour.

    • Gojuu

      If thats Konohamaru in the middle I believe you lol

    • NintendoPSXTheSecond

      All those characters look unlikable except the blue haired chick.

      • Pedro Tavares

        lol yeah they look really bland.

    • Exion
  • KyoyaHibari

    Time to grab the champagne! The madness is almost over!

  • Txu Zai

    One piece needs to go next! Talk about dragging on.
    I cant stop watching/reading but i’d like it to end soon too.

    • Sebastian Lothian

      It’s not going to end soon lol. The next one to end will probably be Bleach, and then it will be between Toriko and One Piece.

    • British_Otaku

      Not very likely, One Piece has a set goal for when it will end and we can see that the characters are around halfway at best even if it is a long manga. Most of the other manga you can think of are much more egregious for dragging on as they invent completely new lore and concepts which don’t mesh with the original tales to stay alive.

      One Piece has been building up to be long since the beginning even if he couldn’t have planned every chapter back in 1997.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      How about no? Unlike Naruto One Piece has a story that is not finished.

      • Kumomeme

        one piece had way better storyline and character,way awesome lore and oda had done great job setting up the world storyline and background

        • Princess_Eevee9

          And from the simple fact Oda doesn’t hate his own series and won’t piss off fans.

      • ineedgames

        One Piece could of finished years ago, now it’s just dragging on.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          I believe you need to look up the definition of dragging on versus storybuilding. I don’t see ask this hate and bullshit for Detective Conan.

    • zferolie

      One piece, like everyone else has been saying, still has a LONG way to go. Oda, unlike Kubo and Kishimoto, has had the plan for One Piece since the beginning(at least so he says). Things have changed sure but as a whole it sounds like he knows where he is going and still setting up a lot.

    • Pedro Tavares

      So you like One Piece but you want it to go away? the best One Piece is on another level.

      Well get out of the train then because Oda will write for alteast 10 more years for sure.

  • epy

    Hinata ending or I’ll riot.

    • David García Abril

      It’s impressive how many people only care for this kind of stuff in “Naruto”. O_o

      Hinata FTW though. :P

      • British_Otaku

        There isn’t much else to care about. >_>

        • Brian

          to true I mean I dropped Naruto after the first 12 or so episodes of shippuden and the only thing I still remotely care about is Hinata being happy

    • Arizato

      I dropped Naruto years ago, but I agree with you on this. I will be pissed off if Naruto doesn’t end up with Hinata.

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Considering Hinata is the only character in this manga I still care about I agree Hinata gets a happy ending or I’ll be pissed.

      Ok thats a little harsh I still like Shikamaru but thats is.

    • zferolie

      I hope we get the Hinata ending, but I have a feeling we will be getting the Naruto/Sasuke ending. Kishi has been hinting at it since the very start.

      If the manga doesn’t get a hinata ending the Anime sure will. The Anime writers and animators seem to love Hinata. With good reason of course.

    • God

      There IS gonna be a Hinata ending, if the manga doesn’t do it, the anime will, and if the anime doesn’t, the fans will.

    • David García Abril

      Probably you already watched it, but just in case.

      Looks like you won’t need to riot after all. lol

    And nothing of value was lost

      Knock it off.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    Naruto GT incoming

    • Mecha_the_Hedgehog

      Your not wrong at all this last naruto movie is just there to set up the anime only sequel I’m really sure.

  • Princess_Eevee9

    It better have a the best ending ever.

  • British_Otaku

    Finally. If there isn’t one Gekitou Ninja Taisen or Clash of Ninja game or a similarly competitive game in the next decade, I’ll be truly disappointed though.

    Those games were the only thing keeping me engaged enough to follow it (and the fact I’ve read/watched too much).

  • kao

    finally, it’s about darn time. but nov 10, that’s probaby 4 chapters left how do they plan to wrap that up?

    and this is what I hate about overly drawn out shounens, I actually dont mind them being milked for a decade, but they often end up so abruptly, you’d think with all that filler theyd at least take some time to end it off..

  • MSJ

    REJOICE! soon you shall achieve your YUETSU!

  • Tonton Ramos

    It’s been so many years… and finally the end is coming

  • Gojuu

    Whys everyone hating on One Piece? Its suppose to be a long ass adventure! it took Gol D. Roger forever to get to the end of the Grand Line! And Luffys way dumber than he is, it cant be helped! At least every episode feels fresh and unique even if its just a filler most the time. LEAVE MY STRAW HAT CREW ALONE DAMMIT! THERE GOIN AS FAST AS THEY CAN!! XDD Besides Pokemon and Detective Conan both have like 9999 episods with no sign of stopping or any plot twist whatsoever!

    • I think its more the anime ruins the manga. This is common.

    • Rayhan PromisedGallery

      Because it’s popular

    • Kumomeme

      because it the best,and the one that still maintain the story paced than naruto and bleach which is getting downfall

      also maybe because those stubborn naruto fans can accept that there are manga way better than naruto

    • MaskedHeroxx

      I’m not hating one piece is the best anime ever son…even over DBZ that’s saying alot

      • God
        • MaskedHeroxx

          -__- already know him and seen all the episodes

          Over Luffy ur trippen son

          • God

            I was just sayin’ Gurren Lagann is the best anime ever, in my opinion at least, but i AM god, so my opinion is kind of a fact. (just joking, don’t flame me)

          • MaskedHeroxx

            Lamo it’s kinda a fact….yea nice try

        • MaskedHeroxx

          I know him seen that anime to

      • Gojuu

        TRUUUE DBZ WAS CLASSIC SAUCE.

        • MaskedHeroxx

          Hahhahaha classic sauce

          One piece and naruto creators said they where inspired by goku

          Goku Is the one tho

    • DivinePhoenix69

      Because hating on things that are popular is considered cool and edgy apparently.

    • Pinwheel

      People tend to lump One Piece with Naruto and Bleach since they were the big three and such. It’s stupid, given the quality of One Piece has been extremely consistent, as opposed to the latter two.

    • Penguin

      i think many of them are hating one piece (anime) because of it’s terrible pacing which is a valid argument. i rarely hear people complaining about the manga of One Piece

  • Gojuu

    As for Naruto, SASUKE BETTER WIN IN THIS WHOLE DAMN MANGA CUZ ITS JUST BEEN DISSAPOINTMENT UP TILL THIS POINT IN TIME. If he kills Naruto and becomes Dictator Kage then the this manga was saved and worth reading and going through those shitty episode fillers before the timeskip. If he doesnt…Then i’ll just pretend and stop reading at a point where Sasuke is winning ROFL.

  • Mirai

    The manga industry has changed a lot in the last few years starting with the end of FMA with several other big series ending like Soul Eater, Hitman Reborn, Mahou Sensei Negima and more. In the last few weeks Kenichi just ended as well and now what was once considered the big three (Naruto, Bleach and One Piece) will end in a few weeks with Naruto ending and I’m sure Bleach will end within the next year as well. The manga industry has changed a lot.
    I dropped Naruto after his fight against Pain, and frankly I’m glad I did from what I’ve heard that happens afterwards, they really should of kept Pain as the main antagonist. As Naruto went to shit afterwards so its really about time for this series to end as well as Bleach which also went to shit after Aizen’s defeat.

    • Gojuu

      I dont even take Bleach seriously anymore I just laugh and look at the pictures in every chapter now without reading the text, that way its bearable! xDD

      • Mirai

        Normally I would say you’re wasting your time reading Bleach. But since Bleach takes like 1 minute to read one chapter anyway, you’re not really wasting time at all.

        • The amount of white space in each chapter is over 9999

        • MaskedHeroxx

          Hahaha

    • kao

      yeah, i’ve noticed that alot of manga series have been ending the last few years, I thought it was just a coincidence but with all these big series ending in such an axed way with no disclosure whatsoever it’s probably the industry’s doing..

      coincidently, I also dropped naruto around the pain arc, I randomly looked at somd recent chapters from the war arc and it seemed like more of the same.

      the battle shounen big 3 should just be synonymous with being milked out for all its worth at this point, the big threes in the past at least had the courtasy to end while it was good without being axed first. but now we have chapter 700+ and the fanbases happily eat it all up. just look at one piece, another repetitive shounen with a formula that people dont mind after several hundred chapters and episodes and dozens of movies..

      • MaskedHeroxx

        Thr ending jus cus the stories are over and u can’t really do more than what they hav….look at one piece they hav a loooong way to go

    • デ オオカミ

      The perfect time for a lot of people to start digging a little deeper and realize there’s more beneath the surface of cliche boredom I’d say.

      • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

        Agree so much on this. It’s a shame people don’t dive into the media often enough to look for other series to get into.

  • Rayhan PromisedGallery

    The next that should end should be Fanservice Tail

    • TempestTwin

      No.

      • Rayhan PromisedGallery

        yes

        • TempestTwin

          end one of the only good manga series that currently exists? why would that make any sense?

          • Rayhan PromisedGallery

            FT? Good? BWAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAHHAHAHA

          • TempestTwin

            I’m sorry I can look past the “fan service” that people complain about and can actually enjoy the series for what it is.

          • Gojuu

            I watch it FOR the fanservice!! SCREW the fights AND SCREW the story!!! XDDD LUCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCCYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYNICCCCCCCEEEEEEEBODDDDDDDDDDYYYYYYYYYYYYYY<33333333333333

          • Rayhan PromisedGallery

            Sorry, just because i type “Fanservice Tail”, doesn’t mean it’s the only thing that irritates me.
            The power of feelings BS nakama power up and Mary Sue characters being the biggest factor

          • Sebastian Lothian

            There are various manga series that are good that aren’t as popular as Fairy Tail. It can end and people will still have various other series to read.

          • ネオフォトン ~ Neo

            I know preference means it’s ultimately subjective, but you must not read much manga if you think Fairy Tail is the only one that’s “good”.

          • TempestTwin

            I feel no need to respond since you pretty much said what I was going to say. At the end of the day this all comes down to opinion.

            I think you misunderstood what I meant. I said it is currently one of the only good manga series, I never said that I didn’t like other manga series out there…

          • Pedro Tavares

            It doesn’t come down to opinion sorry, a series that consist of a guild and most of the guild is ignored and serves as fodder all the time, is a manga of asspull reels and exagerated fanservice isn’t a “opinion” its facts and this facts make the manga bad.

            Oh and no I dont know what Grey or Lucy have done latelly I dropped Bleach and Fairy Tail 8/9 months ago, caught up with Naruto last week because I knew it was ending, I’m waiting for the Bleach is ending news to catch up.

            And dont come wit the “if you cant look past the fan service durrr!”, he does entire chapter so fanservice, he puts gigantic boobs and asses in our faces all the time, we cant look past it because its plastered all over the chapters even when it maeks no sense.

            Thats the reason I stopped reading Kenichi where the girls have to get their clothers ripped every battle for no reason.

          • Pedro Tavares

            Fairy Tail and Bleach are awful how are they good mangas? Bleach isn’t a good manga since its first arc and Fairy Tail isnt a good manga since like its thrid arc.

            Naruto as also been sucking for a long time.

            But yes Fanservice, friendship power up Tail is the worse.

            You probably dont read that much if you consider this one of the “few” good manga out there.

          • kao

            fairy tail is like one piece but with mages instead of pirates and boobs instead of islands. the characters are meh and every final battle is an asspull by natsu talking about frirndship(whereas in bleach every battle is a curb stomp by ichigo after a training montage).

            p.s.
            I also dont like one piece or bleach…

          • TempestTwin

            Did gray/lucy recently receive a “friendship” power up? People really need to let go of that. Like yeah, natsu shouldn’t have won against sting and rouge, I was upset about it too but I understood to move on.

            I can look past the fan service that people keep on complaining about, as I don’t really care or look much into it.

            I actually read a lot of manga series thank you very much. I am entitled to my opinion just as you’re entitled to yours. So shut your mouth if you have nothing good to say. You don’t know me or what I do. So don’t go off making assumptions just because my opinion is different to yours and what the majority of the internet thinks about fairy tail. I’m sorry I can develop my own solid opinion on something and don’t have to jump on a hate bandwagon like yourself.

            Funny thing is most of the people who complain about Fairy tail still read it. I find that pretty ironic.

    • MaskedHeroxx

      But u watch it

    • zferolie

      I think you mean Bleach. That should have ended years ago. Yet I still read it because I have for so many years, sigh

    • Gojuu

      FANSERVICE TAIL IS MAH SHIT!!!! XDDDD

      THey can keep going as long as the girls keep uh…”fighting”…yeaa….thats it…..xDDDDDD

    • disgaea36

      Hater to the max lol

  • supercyc10

    FINALLY!!!!!!
    CLOSURE!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Man, I literally grew up alongside Naruto himself. I remember the first time I came across it. Saw a shonen jump magazine in a gas station and it looked interesting. Asked my mom to get it for me and was blown away. Haha these kids were using kickass powers and fighting this scary looking guy named Zabuza. And here we are at the finale. *sigh*

  • King Dedede

    Im actually more of a comic book guy and even i know that this is good news.

    • Eder García

      enjoy your evil Tony Stark, female Thor and ghetto Captain America

      • Brimfyre

        I like comics and manga! Ha Ha I win.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          Liking both master race?

      • Princess_Eevee9

        Is that a thing?

      • King Dedede

        Meh, Tony will just become some kind of jerk thanks to the next crossover event, but i agree on female Thor, but i honestly am looking forward to Falcon as Captain America, the two of them have always been friends and Flacon deserves it, it’s like when Dick Grayson (Robin, the Boy Wonder) became Batman.

  • Shane Guidaboni

    It’s about time. I bet this dragged on for way longer than Kishimoto ever intended.

    • You may say that, but Bleach is kinda on that same boat, and I still think that neither us nor Kubo know when will it end.

      • Brimfyre

        Didn’t Kubo say Bleach is his paycheck and has no intention of ever ending it?

        • urbanscholar

          It’s on the final arc & will be ending

        • Gojuu

          ROFL IF THIS TRUE IM DYINGGGG OF LAUGHTER!!! NO WONDER HE COULDNT STOP AFTER LOCKING UP AIZEN XDDDDD

        • And that’s what will kill it.

  • Yan Zhao

    The manga is about to end and Hinata/Tenten/most other chararacters still didnt do anything.

    Oh and they still didnt find Anko and Yamato yet.

    • zferolie

      I hope Anko isn’t dead. I really liked her…

    • kao

      yup, about to end and they’re still dragging on about naruto and sasuke for the hundredth time…

      • zferolie

        Because Kishi is a Naruto/Sasuke Shipper.

        I don’t get why people like Sasuke. He seems like your every day emo anger prettyboy who is a fing douchbag and evil but is secretly misunderstood. Dood you don’t need to kill everyone, your logic is dumb.

        • kao

          yeah, I was convinced that the stupid war arc was finally over with but nope, sasuke has to make another dick move and drag on what little time is left in the story because “revenge”.

          why cant they just give naruto that stupid hokage hat and get it over with..

    • decus

      Kishi didn’t like drawing girls fighting. Sakura got to punch a puppet that one time, sort of, and then never really did anything even though she was really strong. Hokage herself rarely got to fight onscreen and that’s super telling.

  • vertical09

    Well at least it’s not going the route Bleach went.
    Its ending when it should, and not hamfisting some out of nowhere plot just for more chapters.

    Now to see if companies squeeze the blood out of this thing.

  • Herok♞

    You know looking at the comments makes me wonder if people even like anything and just like to complain. Heck just looking at the comments Naruto itself should have ended every other chapter.

    Naruto has been a pretty fun ride from start to finish, everything has fallen into place with the last few chapters and I honestly can’t say that I am missing closer from anything big at all, I for one will miss it since its been my favorite shonen anime for years now. So I wish everyone would stop being the internet for a second and celebrate the parts that you enjoyed and just ignore the parts you didn’t.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      I stopped enjoying the series cause of every character I liked died or had some life threatening situations happen to them but the main characters got off scot-free. Hoping that the ending is grand though.

    • kao

      I get that long shounens like naruto are about enjoying the journey instead of the destination but the ride got boring and stale half way through and it kept going on and on…

      there’s probably 4 chapters left and by naruto’s slow standards that not enough to end the arc and get some proper closure, it’ll just feel like a rushed ending out of no where.

      im not really glad its ending since another battle shounen will just take its place in the big three and the cycle will just continue..

    • Hound

      Or celebrate the arrival of new material?

      Even in the dead of winter, it’s good to get fresh air. Naruto’s not the type of manga to just jump randomly into a couple hundred chapters in, read a chapter, and enjoy something else. So, it’s nice that we’ll be getting some different stories for the time being

      I for one am looking forward to whatever unique new worlds will be prominently displayed in future Jump publications

  • Brimfyre

    Did Naruto and Sakura ever hook up? I stopped reading shortly after the time skip.

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Nope Sakura is all about Sasuka still. And rather it be Hinata who end up with Naruto since she deserves a happy ending.

      • Brimfyre

        Yeah I always liked Hinata better (those bangs are my weakness) but from a story standpoint, I am more of a fan of the, “I don’t like you… now I like you a lot” type of relationships.

        It’s a shame Sakura never grew out of her crush.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          I feel like Sakura and Sakura deserve one another as a couple of annoying beings.

      • LonelyGuardian

        Yeah, especially after the Pain arc, she became one of my favorite female characters. I like her for Naruto as well.

        • Princess_Eevee9

          I don’t see why the creator Hayes Hinata when it comes to get and Naruto.

          • Linkmstr

            He doesn’t hate Hinata. He’s just making us feel despair and enjoying it when he doesn’t pair them up too often. They pair up, but then they separate shortly after.
            DESPAIR!

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Poor us and Hinata.

      • Penguin

        it seems that a lot of us wanted naru X hina

    • J_Joestar

      it is looking like a NaruSasu ending at the moment.

  • Erina Snow

    I just here reading stupid people commenting :)

    • Gojuu

      Lol I made an account today so I can be stupid and comment for you!!! XDDDD

  • LonelyGuardian

    I’ve only watched it throughout the years, and at the current Obito arc, all I want is for this story to end, and with the manga ending, hopefully the anime will soon follow. It’s had some great moments (mostly anything with Itachi, Kabuto, Orochimaru, Kurama scenes) some nice character development (Hinata, Shikimaru, Tsunade), yet several problems as well (flashbacks, Naruto); however, overall it’s been a fun story. I just hope Shikimaru gets a good ending, perhaps hokage if the people were smart . . . best character by far.

  • Heisst

    Meanwhile Akagi will never end.

    • King Dedede

      Amen

  • Gojuu

    I think Rock-Lee should be Hokage. LOL

    • Ferrick

      people will die laughing everytime they pass by mt.konohamore

      • Gojuu

        LMFAOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO XDDDDDD

  • MrPanda415

    With Naruto gone, what is everyone going to bitch about next? I don’t see any good existing shounen manga that can carry that much weight in chapters. Naruto has it ups and downs. Resurrection as a catalyst for the ninja war is just a big fat cop out. Still as far as character development in Shounen manga, Naruto is still on the top of my list.

    Last movie???
    We all know Naruto will milk the movies for the next 20 years.

    • Mike M.

      Naruto hasn’t had significant character development for years. It’s been nothing but a big fight scene for a long time. It was an awful way to end the series in my book.

      Try reading/watching Magi.

      • MrPanda415

        I never said it was consistent. But it does up until the ninja war then it was just meh. Most long standing series dont have continuously heavy stream of good character development – it just becomes stale.

        It doesn’t mean naruto doesnt trump other mangas in its comparative genre.

        • Mike M.

          Magi and One Piece both have it beat on character development. Naruto had lost its steam a very, very long time ago.

          I’m not part of the Hunter x Hunter boat myself. That author has always produced second-string material and he still is. Having a narrator spell out every emotion of every character for you is not proper writing or development.

          • MrPanda415

            Thats you’re opinion. Like i said its on top of my list not yours. I also like one piece but I dont have anything that trumps naruto besides DBZ since i grew up with that.

          • Princess_Eevee9

            Your list needs work.

          • disgaea36

            yeah if you think naruto is your best you need to explore your horizons a bit.

          • disgaea36

            your smoking that good crack lol I wanna see what you can come up with.

    • Pedro Tavares

      Read One Piece, Kingdom, Haikyuu, Toriko(even though its a lot shittier now), HxH if it isn’t on hiatus.

      Could tell you a lot more examples but I believe this are enough.

      • Tonton Ramos

        What about Kuroko no Basuke and other Yugioh spinoffs?

        • Pedro Tavares

          Kuroko is great, Yugi urgh I couldn’t watch Zexal the kid was so freaking annoying.

          • Tonton Ramos

            Zexal is done now we are on Arc V with tomato boy…

          • Pedro Tavares

            Yeah I know but the last one just made me not want to watch Yugi anymore is it any decent? card games on motorcylces was actually fun and had a cool plot but the others(besides the original) meh.

          • Kamakuma

            Kuroko was amazing until the (rushed)finale happened imo… v.v So much salt from that…

          • British_Otaku

            Between that ending, Beelzebub and the one for Katekyo Hitman Reborn, I really expect anything in JUMP which ends to end poorly.

          • Kamakuma

            W-Wait… Beel ended?! :’o W-When?! >__< I started reading it back when it was first published but I remember stopping to let chapters load up. I-I know that was a few years ago but…. Really did it end? t—t

          • British_Otaku

            Yes it ended this April if I remember right… It was the worst and most rushed WSJ ending I’ve had the privilege of reading. It got a Jump NEXT continuation but I don’t know whether anyone cared enough to translate it.

            Kuroko no Basket also ended recently and has a Jump NEXT continuation but that one seems to be more of a sequel not that the first chapter is out.

        • Nonscpo

          Every yugioh spinoff after 5DS is a joke, oh and GX too!

  • nick_54g

    finally! now waiting for one piece and bleach to die as well

    • Pedro Tavares

      Why would One Piece end? Oda knows what he is doing and he actually has story to tell, he isn’t lost half of the time like Kubo.

      There are so many plot points to explore in one piece that it just makes your post dumb or maybe you are a One Pice hater, becaue really it makes no sense.

      • PenguinPlayer

        The way he wrote it, it sounds he just has a bone to pick with shounen.

        • Pedro Tavares

          Probably looking at the avatar he probably likes those spammed school girl animes that we get nowdays, super generic and boring.

          • Gojuu

            LMAOOOOO STOP!!!! *deaddd*

          • Anko Is Furious (King T.G.P)

            Or he could’ve possibly successfully trolled people lol.

          • British_Otaku

            Ryushika Ryushika (the manga in his avatar) is a niche manga only story from an artist (Yoshitoshi ABe) who has collaborated on some brilliant short anime like Texhnolyze, Haibane Renmei and Serial Experiment Lain while Despera is on hiatus as the director died.

            Artwork is a shallow reason to pick at someone, even if I can’t say there is much substance in Ryushika. It is pretty darn amusing. >_>

            Your comment on his avatar and “spammed school girl animes” is just as poor as his original one on One Piece, Naruto and Bleach (which only have a long runtime and a dumb “Big Three” moniker in common).

      • Gojuu

        I swear I totally was gonna say that, but then I was like I pity this guy for not being able to comprehend One Pieces sub plots within plots within hidden plots within plots within ART lol so i just let it go xD

      • nick_54g

        your post

    • Cephrien

      Lol. I dunno about Bleach. But One Piece is gonna be around for quite awhile longer. Honestly, I hope OP never ends. It’s an amazing manga and leagues ahead of the other two in terms of quality in story.

      That would be pointless though, its not like he’s an Uchiha or a Senju so he’ill never come close to Naruto or Sasuke in power.

    As a fan, I can say this… FINALLY. I’ve been waiting to be finished with this manga. Been reading it since I discovered it back in ’04. It’s been a long journey.

    I will not deny I may cry.

  • Prinnydoom

    Been a long road. Lets hope this ends on a good note……hell it probably will.

  • Ni ~Algidus~

    if it really ends. i’ll finally get back to reading it. i stoopped when naruto was training in the waterfall to tame kyuubi.
    Also what a lame character design Naruto got in this movie

  • Slickyslacker

    Well, here we are. A rare shonen manga that I can claim to have seen begin and end throughout my lifetime. I got into it close (enough) to its inception, was intensely into it for a while, then on-and-off, before I fell out of it shortly after Shippuden began.

    Just this past month, I picked up UNSR to see what sort of heights the franchise has reached. At least I can say I bought the last Naruto game before the series ended.

    I’m completely betting on a homicide ending, too. Either that or Naruto is killed and reborn as a fox.

    Anyone reading the latest Gintama chapters? how awesome are they.

    • xAKUM3TSUx

      I need to start reading them as well. I always fall behind on em but I guess thats me just waiting for a mass amount of chapters I read so I dont have to wait lolz

    • British_Otaku

      I’ve got 10 volumes of the manga from Viz, once I get all of the English ones, I plan to read everything online.

  • natchu96

    Only took Forever™.

    The two people that matter are so godlike already I can’t imagine it going on for much longer.

  • Gojuu

    I felt like no show will ever be as popular as DBZ….then Pokemon…..then Yugioh….then Naruto….then Bleach….Then back to Naruto….And now I assume One Piece will be watched over by even the ones that use to hate it because its gettin so popular and because now they’ll have no new shonen manga to watch haha!! :P

    • You’re talking about in the west, right?

      • Gojuu

        Definitely dood, U already know Japans a whooole nother story hahaha!

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Well I hope that new ones come in and try to captivate us.

    • subsamuel01

      Naruto Shippuden’s anime is not ending anytime soon so there’s still that.

  • Ps1 Cloud

    about time. it was just dragging along.

  • Eilanzer

    one of the worst and most successful mangas…i don´t know how people can like this story but kudos to the author, filler inside of filler milking the cow inside a generic story…

    • Adam Sheridan

      Not that much filler in the manga, the anime has almost more filler than main story episodes. I mean aren’t there like two or three seasons worth of pure filler?

    • jordanbobordan

      Yeah the manga really doesnt have filler, just a really long and involved plot. Story really isnt that generic either, you can say what you want about the quality of the writing, but the events that transpire are actually relatively original.

      • disgaea36

        Very generic and some Naruto had the most potential when they were younger before shippuden then it became what it is today. but hey it sells so its a win for them.

        • Eilanzer

          I completely agree with you, the show lost the ninja/intelligent/trap/sneaky ways to pick generic dragon ball fighting style…damn…Naruto now has kamehameha and teleport =.=”

          but…this is what sells…the autor in a way is a genius…

  • Adam Sheridan

    Whats that, six more chapters? Seven?

  • You know… I more curious of @adamsheridan:disqus’s beard more so than the bloody manga series and bashful hating. MARBIL AT HIS BEARD! CAPUKOM SUPAH FUN TYME YAHHHH~

  • Göran Isacson

    WHEN I WAS
    A YOUNG MAN

    Okay I don’t know how to follow that up, but MAN it’s kind of true. I started reading this for like, eleven years ago and have followed it up until now. And it’s…

    Well. I would lie if I said that I love it was much as I use to. I would really, REALLY lie. I too think it sunk drastically in quality after Shippuden, and that the waste of so many good characters has been ever so tiring to see. But I still FOLLOWED it, you know? I read it. I stuck around, because it had become habit. I didn’t really care for it, didn’t comment much, and now… now I just feel this immense sense of relief. It’ll soon be over. I’ll be free of this bad habit. Even if the final fight will be over in less than five chapters, I don’t even care- I can’t be arsed to care about Sasuke, so anything that involves him and is over as soon as possible is a plus in my book.

    I’m not gonna say that there haven’t been good times, even in the latter half. I’m also not going to pretend this hasn’t turned into a massive phenomenon worthy of thought and consideration because holy hell, Naruto is just this INSTITUTION now. The first part did have a lot of good in it, that got me hooked and all enthusiastic. But during the latter parts it’s just felt like for every thing I enjoyed, there were two things I didn’t. I loved Killer Bee, but I can’t really say that anything that happened after he smacked up Sasukes ribcage was that important or well-handled. Naruto just up and un-learned his fear of Kurama and became his buddy in the span of, what, two days in-canon time? He overcame his own inner darkness so easy it was almost a joke. Bee hardly mattered after that.

    So, yeah. I’ll raise my glass and give the respect that it’s due, for all the years it’s been running and for all the good times it did give. But miss it? No. Not on your life- believe it.

  • Ricewarrior

    I was fairly tolerant of the manga with it’s Ninja Zombie war until they started introducing the “Ninja Alien Gods” like completely out of no where.

    When it started doing that I was like lol srsly?

    • Princess_Eevee9

      Ninja Alien Gods what?

      • KanjiLikesBoys

        Kaguya?

        • [S]unjay

          The Kaguya battle was terrible. The entire ninja war arc was terrible.

          • aizen310

            Entire Shippuuden was needless IMHO. Naruto, I mean the first story itself had more “identity” then “run-of-mill-shounen-with-young-adults-and-overly-convoluted-plot” aka Shipuuden.

          • [S]unjay

            Yeah, I only enjoyed the Hidan arc and the arc where Jiraiya invaded pains village. Shippuden was a let down.

          • ShadowDivz

            Actually, i find up until that point Shippuden was amazing. After the Hidan vs Shikamaru (god damn that was a masterpiece). It was pretty downhill from there.

          • [S]unjay

            The Sasuke retrieval arc after the Garaa arc was good :)

    • Warboss Aohd

      Ninja Cthulhu?

  • aizen310

    Hmmm…
    I know a lot of you will find my post offensive or downright stupid, but I really hope that it means a Bleach anime continuation in the future, when super-popular Naruto anime finally ends too.

    Seriously guys, with a profile picture like this, what else did you expect? XD

    • That had balls. More balls than Josuke (JoJolion)

    • Tienron

      lol fat chance since bleach is also at it’s end

    • mckun

      I hope so but I don’t see it happening until Bleach finally ends.

    • Pedro Tavares

      Bleach is constantly bottom 5/3 on shonen jump rankings, the anime had bad ratings that why it ended, no it wont come back.

      • aizen310

        Could you tell me the winning numbers for the lottery? You seem to be the kind who can see the future. /sarcasm

        I blame the filler arc before the Fullbringers for that bad anime rating. Also Bleach is like a rollercoaster now switching between very good chapters and admitedly-lame chapters. So I find it hard to believe, it is constant bottom.

        • ShadowDivz

          To be fair, the Fullbringer arc was garbage.
          I highly doubt the filler before it had anything to do with it.

          And i have seen every episode of bleach. Fillers included.

          • aizen310

            Naruto had its share of mindnumbingly stupid canon content and streched out fillers too so really, I don’t see why Bleach could be worse than its competitors.

            I still agree that Fullbringer arc was… lacking. But to cancel the show with stuff still unanswered was a BS move. Not to mention the show replacing Bleach was some kind of chibi Rock Lee-whatever-the-hell-was-that Naruto spin-off.

            Recent arc has its fair share of epic and “meh” moments too. Come on people… I believe in that there are animes far worse than Bleach out there.

            It’s not just about Bleach, really. Elfen Lied and Deadman Wonderland are mangas that needs a more faithful anime adaptation, not just 13 episodes of semi-canon, semi-original cash grab.

            At least Yamada Taro don’t have an anime. Still have some faith in humanity.

          • ShadowDivz

            Oh, don’t get me wrong(I know this is a week late), I DID NOT want bleach to finish.
            I was honestly looking forward to the fullbringer crap finishing and then having a really good CANON arc. But it just ended…. After THAT. I can’t believe it ended after such a poor arc.

          • aizen310

            Time will tell. I want to see Yamamoto’s death, Unohana’s bankai, the Everything But the Rain flashback-arc and a whole other stuff animated :(

    • British_Otaku

      It will go according to plan, first Naruto leaves and Bleach takes over.

      But really, yeah if Bleach ends before another anime season is confirmed it probably won’t ever happen. I hear Hitman Reborn is in the same spot, diminishing results from the anime and such then the manga dies a dirty death.

  • Reki Honoo

    Despite all that’s happened in the Naruto manga, it will be sad to see it go. It was really enjoyable for me, no matter what happened. I don’t know if the Naruto new era project means there will be a new Naruto manga though.

  • Combo

    On the one hand, I’m glad I can finally stop reading this thing that’s been pretty bad since Pain. On the other hand, with the manga where it is right now, unless they have three or four double-length chapters, I doubt there will be any sort of closure for anyone besides Naruto and Sasuke. The two least interesting characters.

    As a side note, I kinda hope Kishimoto starts a comedy manga after this. Against all odds, Naruto’s funny bits always managed to make me smile.

  • MaidKillua

    It could have avoided so many of the things that made me hate the war if he’d just ditched the stupid Black Zetsu and Kaguya bits and jumped straight to the Sasuke fight after Madara got taken out. Would have made it drag less AND those bits were pointless anyway.

    Regardless of the drop in quality nearer the end though, i’m one of those people who’s been following it for so long that it’ll be sad for it to go even if I care about it much less these days

  • Vallen

    Well….it’s been a fun ride :(

  • IS | 桂木

    This was such a big part my middle and highschool life (as much as I hate to admit it). It’ll be sad to see it go :[

  • disgaea36

    wow this has become another site where people just come to complain. smh it’s about time they ended they practically cover everything in their universe

    • mckun

      It’s probably because Naruto is a popular sub par series that went downhill not because of the fandom but because of the writer himself. If something like a no name light novel is ending or that fujoshi fish mermaid series is ending you wouldn’t hear a thing about it.

      • Touma

        sub par? bit much ain’t it? sure it had issues, like pretty much everything after the pain arc but sub par? and being really cheesy and sappy. theres some pretty excellently written characters in here though. not to mention the art all the way through the first half was unique and had personality. along with overall excellent character designs.

        • mckun

          It’s hard to say but Naruto is a cross between sub par and bad. I would say season 1 is average at the most. There isn’t any excellently written characters outside of the Uchiha clan (and maybe Naruto himself) and that’s only within the series. If you compared this to anything else then I couldn’t really say “Excellently written” in regards to the Uchiha clan.

          Sakura was done horribly since the beginning, some characters i.e. Rock Lee and TenTen were put in certain chapters as an afterthought and only get background in a non canon spin off, things like elements and power levels were retcon all over the place and some people were a joke in general. Not in a good way. Oh and did I mention the shipping wars within the series itself with certain characters dying for said shipping war?

          Naruto>Shippuden but since Shippuden is basically Naruto part 2 I would consider the whole series in general sub par.

          • ShadowDivz

            …Doesn’t sub par mean “below average”?
            Sub = below
            Par = the average

          • mckun

            My bad. Naruto is like…somewhere in between so I edited that. Thanks for the catch.

          • Touma

            y’know, i can’t disagree with most of what you said. especially the part about power levels. the third shouldn’t have been able to take on the first and second hokage. even if it was one on one yet he did. he was more worried about the fourths coffin then the clearly more powerful by a mile in shippuden first and second hokage.

            which is why i wish the series should have ended during the first half. alot of the problems such as the power levels would’ve been a non-issue. and really even though they share continuity they definitely give off different vibes. sort of like DBZ and DB. same series and continuity but handled much differently then each other. so i consider them seperate from each other despite the shared continuity. but if i where to put them together they would have balanced out to be simply “meh”.

            ultimately where we differ is what i’m looking for in a manga is different from yours. which is why i could consider the original “great” while you consider it simply “average”. and nostalgia. definitely nostalgia is getting in the way from me calling it average. i’m willing to admit that.

            i’m gonna end this long post with this. don’t get me started on the fanbase. i’m ashamed of my fellow naruto fans :/. and sakura sucks balls.

  • Tienron

    so basically naruto wins the fight between him and sasuke then….

    • ishyg

      Sasuke will win, and they will change the title from Naruto to Sasuke. Haha. I suck at this.

  • Sion12

    Finally, Naruto is great until shipudden, drop it half way and now i can finally have a excuse to finish the manga.

    it will be funny if next week ending is “The adventure has just began! next week Naruto XX with brand new character and brand adventure!!”

    but seriously JUMP is in trouble if Naruto,Bleach and one piece all ends. just cant see another series that can replace them

    • British_Otaku

      Look at your avatar mate, they still have Gintama, Toriko, World Trigger (has potential), Assassination Classroom (basically a hit even before the anime starts), One Piece (not ending anytime soon), Haikyu, Hunter X Hunter (sometimes), Nisekoi and Shokugeki no Soma.

      Is Naruto their biggest currently ongoing international hit? Yes, but they will still make money from the others as well as One Piece which is bigger in Japan anyway.

      Naruto will continue to be a cash cow if Dragon Ball is any sign as well… I don’t buy much Naruto stuff, but I’ll just laugh and make a greater effort to spend my time and money elsewhere if we see an extension really soon.

      • Sion12

        i agree Gintama is epic, best manga in jump in my opinion but kinda niche title especially in the west. but other than that none of the title you mention even come close to the level of big three(maybe except Hunterxhunter) in terms of mainstream appeal heck they are not even in the same genre

        • British_Otaku

          How do you measure “mainstream appeal? Assassination Classroom volumes tend to outsell the all of those but Naruto and One Piece. The anime and live action movie will start in January 2015, but it is a hit to come if you can’t call it a hit already.

          Toriko seems to be doing pretty well as well, I hope “Mainstream audience” doesn’t mean a long running anime which messes up most of the good parts of the manga. >_>

          You only said “Jump”. Isn’t “Weekly Shonen Jump” close enough whether it is people playing volleyball, dating the daughter of an American gangster or an adventure to fight the something to save the something to get the something. Dr Slump was a hit at the same time that Fist of the North Star was.

      • ishyg

        “Hunter X Hunter (sometimes)”

        This cracks me up every time.

      • Adam Sheridan

        As of last year One Piece is the most popular manga, not Naruto. One Piece has actually sold the most volumes of manga in history, which is still surprising to me.

    • Sydney Losstarot

      Ahhh man, is Gintama going to end too? It seems like it is ending from what I read on the latest chapter. Hopefully the anime starts back up.

  • mckun

    Last chapter is 699….

    • greeeed

      wasn’t it 700?

      • mckun

        Current chapter out is 694 so unless that’s a mistake 5+4=9. But it does say November the 10th so unless they are going to release a double chapter….

        • ishyg

          Probably a double chapter.

  • triablos

    I’m gonna miss this. I read the manga now (I caught up halfway through shippuden and couldn’t be bothered to wait) and while the last few hundred chapters have been kinda eh, this anime was essentially my “gateway” to the anime world and one of the most entertaining parts of my childhood.

    • Tiredman

      Watch One Piece. Imo, of the trilogy of Bleach, Naruto, and One Piece, One Piece is king. The plot moves faster, the filler episodes are almost always a lot of fun, and the fights are creative and fun to watch. Also, save for around, oh, 7 to 9 episodes total, it doesn’t rely on tons of flashbacks to fill in minutes of each episode.

      • decus

        You’re joking, right? I like the One Piece manga and all, but its anime is 70% garbage. The average episode is 22 minutes, 5-8 of those minutes are the opening and recap, 4 are ending and next episode preview. The remaining minutes are full of time stalls, overly long flashbacks or added things that end up not making sense later since they consistently try to make episodes while basically caught up to the manga (marineford the worst).

        Seriously, just look at the episode total compared to chapter total and you’ll know they dragged it out such that every non-filler episode used 1-2 chapters of the manga. That is terrible anime pacing and, while they do show almost everything from the manga unaltered, it’s surrounded by slow time fill camera pans (hello water 7 and enis lobby) and other obnoxious time filler techniques straight out of DBZ, like using a 1-2 minute flashback where one best measured in seconds would have sufficed (all over Thriller Bark and Enis) or repeating the same flashback over and over again across a few episodes (Coby wants to be a marine admiral!).

        • Metabble

          I suppose he meant the manga. Nobody likes the One Piece anime, specially after the quality drop after Enies Lobby

          • Tiredman

            Nope, I meant the anime. I watched bleach, naruto and one piece, and even if they use shoddy graphics in segments, it is still funnier, and more engaging than the other two anime series. But that could also be because I am into comedy which is lacking in most episodes of the other two anime.

          • Guest

            I’m one of the biggest One Piece fans around and even i’ll say the anime is shit compared to both Naruto AND Bleach’s, if you cut filler from all of them. Just judging the canon material based on animation quality and pacing, One Piece has the worst anime

            Best manga though. By a long shot

          • Tiredman

            Cut filler =p considering the majority of Naruto feels like filler and Bleach is just non stop boring story between action segments. The current story airing on adult swim just bores me to tears and I actually don’t enjoy it much either.

          • Penguin

            i disagree… One piece anime In my honest opinion feels more like a filler than naruto. Like mentioned above, One piece has a very poor pacing which killed off the series for me. (it’s also the reason why i disliked toei)

            though i respect your opinion as a fellow anime fan

          • ShadowDivz

            You respect his opinion? You mean, he’s an asshole devoid of taste, right? This is the internet. Nothing ends happily on the internet.

            Between the one piece and anime and Naruto anime. I’m totally mixed. Sometimes the pacing of one piece is off, but man can they deliver. Rob Lucci fight anyone? (ignoring the cut offs between of course).

            I do think the naruto anime had better pacing BUT, the fillers of naruto were unbearable. Especially when filler characters get flash backs. One piece fillers were pretty entertaining.

            And i actually loved the bleach anime. Especially the artstyle….everything BEFORE Aizen showdown arc. There are alot of errors during the full bringer arc. I even have some pictures if you guys want to see.

          • Tiredman

            The full bringer arc is where adult swim is at atm, and I really don’t like it. The show had a pretty good, solid story prior to the last few arcs, and now its out in la la land.

          • Tiredman

            Will admit, I think we have different ideas of pacing. But yeah, I just enjoy discussing anime during the rare chances I get since I spend enough time on video game forums. Last thing I need is to add anime forums……I would never get any non computer time. Once Piece is my favorite of the trio, so much so that when I feel down in the dumps, I start the series from scratch and watch most of the episodes leading up to skypeia, skip to the CP9 fights, and then skip to the introduction of Luffy’s Grandpa and the learning of new bounty’s episodes. Love the grandpa episode.

          • British_Otaku

            Filler wise, One Piece got really lucky in comparison to the other two, but it is still much better as a manga.

            No filler arcs. (I guess G8 is out)
            No crappy filler arcs.
            No contridictions.
            No ruined fights.
            No strange censorship.

        • Tiredman

          I think the big difference between me and you then is I am a comedy action fan, and bleach and naruto lack both in spades compared to One Piece. I tend to buy the dvd’s and I skip openers and with the marathon option, it skips after episode recaps. I just feel One Piece is better paced, and I really don’t miss Naruto’s insane amount of backflashes and extremely slow plot movement, especially during most fights.

          Bleach, I am a so so fella on it. I enjoyed it early on, but now its storyline is getting ridiculously complex and, in ways, stupid, that it is hard to take seriously.

        • [S]unjay

          The One Piece anime is definitely adulterated.

      • triablos

        One Piece is my favourite anime of all time. I’m around early 500s.

        Funny thing is, I only started watching OP because I caught up with Naruto.

  • Touma

    shit man, i’ve been with this series since i was a kid. sad its going out on a low note compared to the original series but it’llbe missed. it deserved better then a lackluster second half. no sense crying over spilled milk though. now kishimoto can make a series with a better plot. i know he can make stories better then this. hes shown it with how expertly he handled itachi’s character

  • KanjiLikesBoys

    Thank fucking god

    • God

      No need, i’m only doing my job.

  • Hero

    The series I’ve been following since I was in elementary school. I’m now in the University of Florida. The series that spawned millions of fans, merchandise, many movies, games…is ending.

    Sigh…it’s gonna take a toll on me for a while but yeah, everything must end eventually. I will take the time to enjoy these next 5 weeks. I believe Kishimoto created something that was a breath of fresh air, and it was a good ride.

    Kishimoto stated that EVERY SINGLE character in the show is an extension of himself whether they were shown a lot or not, everyone of them represents a part or state of mind in himself. He is truly a genius, not a lot of individuals can create something and make it as big as this. Gonna miss it a lot.

  • Fenrir

    As happy as I am that generic shounen #2427 is ending, it’s rather bittersweet since I know some new generic shounen will rise up and take its place.

    • [S]unjay

      Fairy Tail, Toriko and Freezing may take its place.

      • mike dickson

        freezing isn’t a shounen last time i check

        • [S]unjay

          I haven’t read Freezing so I was under the impression that it was a Shonen. My bad, it does look like it has some ecchi.

          • mike dickson

            oh it does alot

          • [S]unjay

            Damn, then i’m missing out.

          • ishyg

            Whoa, ecchi? Thanks for the tip.

          • [S]unjay

            Just search for “Freezing” in Google Images. Ecchi-galore.

    • ShadowDivz

      Generic? Naruto is inspiring as fuck.
      Maybe because i read it at a young age. But you know, if haters would actually take the time to LEARN about what they are hating, they would know why it’s popular or at least be more than a random troll.

      Shippuden didn’t hook me as much as the original did though.

      • Fenrir

        I first saw it at a young age too, what’s your point?

        Also guess what? I actually did see a fair number of episodes back when it was first airing on Toonami so I do believe I have the right to criticize.

        So, how about YOU take the time to consider that there are people who dislike it AND have actually watched/read it.

  • [S]unjay

    Why did Naruto get a haircut?

    • Loco4Divas

      I think its just to reflect that he’s older in that movie. Idk. But have they announce how old he’s going to be in that new movie? Naruto just turned 17 in the manga, so he could be a few years older there.

      • [S]unjay

        Yes, that may be it but it sucks we don’t get to see him as hokage. They haven’t announced his age in the movie.

        • Loco4Divas

          I’m not saying I’m for it but maybe the movie is a way to promote a supposed 3rd series to continue the anime Naruto franchise without the Manga like Dragonball GT? He might be a Hokage there.

          • [S]unjay

            Lol, I can’t imagine Naruto without the manga. He could do another spin-off like Beelzebub.

  • Loco4Divas

    Omg these next 5 weeks are going to fly by so fast :( I’ve been a fan of Naruto for the last 10 years and its one of my favorite series and I can’t believe that is actually going to end very very soon now. I hoping that these last few chapters are going to be double or even triple size chapters because we are finally get a round 2 for Naruto vs Sasuke and I can’t see that fight only lastly a few chapters that are roughly 16-17 pages each. I was hoping that the fight would be long enough to go into 2015 but i guess not lol But congrats to Kishimoto for the series to make it this far (1999-2014) 15 years. That’s a great run for a mangaka. I wonder what he going to do next after November :) He should take a long vacation!!!

  • Shippoyasha

    I must say this does make me teary eyed a bit. It is a show/manga that definitely has a ton of faults, but it’s not without its charm. It’s ending at the right place I feel.

    Makes me wonder if Kishimoto’s next manga will be another big hit. I’m hoping, and hopefully he can improve.

  • Lolita

    It’s been a long journey and a great experience. Been following the Naruto series since my middle school days.

    • ShadowDivz

      Can i cry with you?

      • Lolita

        Heh.. it doesn’t make me cry but just a bit bummed out. Everything eventually ends anyways. Sounds cheesy but the series will still be kept in my memories. Probably will branch off into other series. Definitely proud to say that it was the character Uchiha Itachi that hooked me into the Naruto series. Love his character and design.. thank you Mr. Kishimoto!

        • Spider-Man

          Naruto better end up with Hinata…

  • Penguin

    it’s sad to see a great series is coming to an end..

    • Benefit

      huh?

  • ishyg

    I’ll just wait for the next one Kishimoto. Damn, I’ll admit this made me a bit sad, but you have to end at one point.

  • Uncle Tat

    Damn, Naruto is ending?

    Man I am getting flashback of emptiness I feel when Dragon Ball and Eyeshield 21. Like really sad, have nothing to look forward week after week.

    Naruto is easily one of my favourite manga all time. Part one have everything I like in shounen, an underdog protagonist, tactical combat approach, well thought fresh jutsu (Gaara’s sand, Lee’s Lotus, Shino’s bug, hypnotizing/move predicting Sharingan), comedic moment and outstanding art.

    Part 2 was decent at best. I’ll be honest the first time I read part 2 I was let down on how badly the artsyle have gotten. I hope it’ll get better, but it didn’t. Naruto isn’t underdog anymore, but it never clearly shown how he is in the villager’s eyes. Tactical combat is rarer, and if any, nothing sort of impressive. Jutsu is usually the bigger version of the previous one, and Sharingan is getting so overpowered it is ridiculous. The obsession with Sharingan and Hashirama’s DNA also is the main focus in the war act, which is a downer.

    Man, I can’t believe how Naruto was going downhill after the first Sasuke vs Naruto in Valley of Defilement.

    Still, part one was so good, that will make me will miss Naruto manga. I hope the incoming movie will be somewhat good, at least I want a decent ending to this once great manga.

    So…….This is it huh…..I remember being younger and first watching naruto when it came on Toonami on Saturday night…..Oh how far we have come :’)

    This will be a finale to end all finale’s! (What’s up with that haircut though? :P)

  • harmonyworld

    My HEEEEEEEEARRRRT WILL GO OOOOOON *sobs forever*
    Seriously though, my favorite manga and only manga I’ve been reading for so long.
    Dang!
    Pfft, One Piece will go on for the next million years tho~

  • Harfianz

    Every Journey has an end :(
    hope the ending is great

  • leingod

    So… I guess it’s only fillers in the anime from now on.

    • Carlos Fernandez

      No, that means the anime SHOULD have less fillers. Why put in fillers when there is no longer any need to get distance from the manga. You know, since it will be over.

      • leingod

        I know. I meant they’ll continue the anime after they reach the end of the manga with filler stuff :P

        • Carlos Fernandez

          Oh god I hope not. XD That would be a train wreck waiting to happen. (replying to everything, since the topic can be interesting.)

      • Stephen Mc Devitt

        Why have fillers at all? Either give Naruto a break ’til the manga catches up or go the Fullmetal Alchemist route and develop a new plot. It worked for FMA since it got a more faithful adaptation anyway.

        • Carlos Fernandez

          Before I go into my rant of an explanation, please note that I do not know the official reasoning behind these things. I’m offering insight based on logic and deduction, not based on facts I know. If anyone wants to step in and add more, I’d love to learn more!

          Now, on to the rant!

          FMA was an exception, not a rule. Its original did well, despite not being the actual story, and the remake followed the story. Not many anime do this. So rather than make something up, putting in filler arcs to add more depth or personality to some characters is a ‘decent’ alternative. Besides, if you followed the manga and saw the anime doing its own thing entirely, compared to seeing maybe 10 episodes (lets not bring up the MASSIVE filler splotch between Naruto and Naruto Shippuuden. That was disgusting, even if some were entertaining.), then having it get back on track. Its A. cheaper, since its not a new series that requires full time writers, and B. usually better for business, since even if the fillers aren’t well received, they don’t take up too much room.

          • Stephen Mc Devitt

            Thanks for the explanation but even so, I’ll never understand most shonen anime.

            Fillers were downfalls for the anime adaptations of Rurouni Kenshin and Bleach.

  • Kyoji

    Thank god it’s over.

  • Michael Cortorreal

    So the manga is ending…wow…I cannot believe I passed highschool and college reading this manga.
    Its been years now, a whole lifetime to be honest.
    Also, if you guys think this series has been around for a long time, One Piece plans to stay longer…
    Oh and…Hajime No Ippo says hello on the long run series.

    • Marcelin Dautruche

      Can’t forget detective conan.

      • harmonyworld

        Shin-chan too~

        • Carlos Fernandez

          Kochikame says its been saving a park bench. Its been around much longer, and while not as outwardly popular or known… wow, the dates say it all. (haven’t read it personally. Not my taste, but I can respect the time its been there. Had to have struggled)

  • Bob Slim

    Im gonna miss naruto. Its 1 of the few mangas I even read I dont read many. All im gonna have left is bleach, one piece. and fairy tail now

    • K.PL

      Actually I believe Bleach is ending too.

      • Carlos Fernandez

        Yeah, it should be done already though. Considering almost 3 years have passed since it was announced to be on its ‘last arc.’ A climax should not last this long. Naruto didn’t outright say it was ending, and built up. Bleach… well, they announced its end was near, and now it feels like its dragging out. Maybe its because that was said that I feel this way though.

        Link showing announcement of Bleach entering its final arc just for clarification/proof: http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2012-02-01/tite-kubo-bleach-manga-to-enter-final-arc

  • Snorlaxation

    Took 4EVER!
    But still, it’s been goin, and apparently, been goin Strong.
    Gotta respect that.

  • Ren Yuumei

    Even with all the hate i still feel a little sad by this, i started reading this in high school :(

  • katamari damacy

    Naruto’s current arc had to be the last one as they essentially, out of nowhere, had Naruto and Sasuke fight the Naruto universe’s equivalent of GOD and beat the shit out of her. Where else were they going to go from there?
    The entire last arc was an exercise in “bad guy inflation” of ridiculous proportions.

  • Ric Vazquez

    I’m going to celebrate tat it ends that day, it was stretched too much in my opinion. If only my fave Akame ga Kill was a weekly manga…so, when is One Piece going to end? LOL
