Re: Naruto and Wind Techs.
I agree, Naruto should learn some normal ninjutsu. He only knows three techs (besides basic ones like henge and stuff): kage bunshin, kuchiyose, and rasengan (and its variations). He never summons toads anymore. I thought after all that training with Jiraiya he would be more proficient at fighting together with toad summons.
Its all about kyuubi this, sage mode that, make a better rasengan (oodoma rasengan- used once), make an even better rasengan (fuuton: rasengan- used twice), make an even better rasengan (rasenshuriken), make bigger rasengans with natural energy in sage mode, blah blah, lame... It gets boring real quick.
There needs to be some sort of break where he trains (with his 1000 kage bunshins of course) to master several wind element techniques. Maybe Kakashi could Kamui him into the Avatar universe so he could learn the basics from Aang lol. Perhaps a fuuton: kaze no yaiba from Baki. Better yet some long range techs that don't require half of his sage mode power. How bout some fuuton kage bunshins that when they are defeated they explode into a tornado that throws his opponent away (like kakashi's raiton kage bunshin electrocuted the puppet pain when defeated).
Then he should master suiton and learn to do the gufuu suika without yamato. His father's name (Namikaze) means Waves and Wind afterall. He should inherit both of those.
