I'll agree Kishi does give into his editors way too easily on changes they want to make but at the same time.... it's his own fault too. Seriously now that Naruto is over, I think we can all agree how poorly paced that last big war arc was and now that we know the entire picture, agree it could of been edited a wholeeeeeeeeeeeee lot tigther. Seriously I could easily cut like... 10 chapters from the last 100+ easily and still easily hit every single plot point without losing any big character or action moments easily. There was no reason it had to be stretched that long and honestly just really having like one and a half chapters wrapping up most of the characters plot points is ridiculous. At this point no one's going to drop Naruto that hadn't already so time easily could of been spent building up more relationships and character moments before the big finale time skip. Seriously Naruto didn't need 700 chapters: it honestly probably could of been told in 600 chapters but if it needed 700 it needed some taken away then just adding to the total it already had. And I know especially in this kind of story not every chapter of an arc is going to be amazing but again sooooooooo much could of been cut to spend on more important things that it's worth pointing out.
originally posted by Jacob T. Paschal Kishimoto tends to be a push-over when it comes to obeying his bosses, but he should have demanded to do a couple of more chapters before Chapter #700's story.
Man now I"m up to 7,000+ posts. Hard to believe it took me 8 something years to get that many. How long will it take me to get another thousand? Guess you're going to have to keep reading what I have to say to find out.... I hope you've been doing that anyway as I feed off the attention.
