1. Kishimoto loves the "Happy End". Edo Tensei enabled many protagonists of the series to reconcile with once hated or beloved persons. Gaara now knows that he has been loved by his mother and unce all along. Itachi forgives his brother despite his hatred. Pain now believes that Naruto could be the "chosen one". Even Kurama, once a brutish force of nature, respects Naruto. It is very clearly now that Kishimoto is a fan of "Happy Ends", despite his attempt to describe a world, where true peace may never be found. But on the other hand... Naruto is just a Shonen, it's the norm that friendship and love prevail.
2. It is funny that the main character of a series about ninjas lacks skills in stealth and espionage. I would have loved to see Naruto joining the ANBU. I am oviously a big fan of Stealth games.
3. What lies behind the known "Ninja continent"? Why don't you tell us, Kishimoto?
Different conclusions are reached when one fact is viewed from two separate points of view. When that happens, there is no immediate way to judge which point of view is the correct one. There is no way to conclude one’s own conclusion is the correct one.
Re: What do you dislike about Naruto?
My only gripes are with this arc
It was getting repetitive at during the whole Obito thing
They kept reiterating thing that we already knew over and over, having the same discussion over and over, there was a chapter where it gave 5+ pages to shinobi simply readying their weapon, I can't count how many heart moments and speeches there have been which I can only describe as Kishi's attempt to brain wash the the reader into adopting some sort of sympathy which apparently I don't have.
My guess is that Kishimoto knew that Naruto would become more popular as a Shonen and not as a Seinen. Kentaro Miura's "Berserk" is a true masterpiece, yet few people know this manga. Miura takes more time to develop a good story, while Kishimoto releases his manga weekly. This may be the cause why Kishimoto likes to use flashbacks and repetitive talks about friendship.
I really love Naruto, but it could have been better.
