Same for cinema movies, DVD movies is only available about half year from screening period. (not to sure about timing).
This Naruto manga is created by Kishi, but the ownership is SJ (Shonen Jump).
Because once SJ had paid to Kishi, the copyright belong to SJ. (as Manager).
Of course, Kishi will still receive some royalty, being the creator. The other part to SJ weekly magazine.
One episode = one chapter.
There will be some difference, as anime is done by other group (such as TV Tokyo).
So this week manga will be show 1 yr later.
Your calculation could be see one year later, end Dec 2013 (estimate).
That is why there are fillers....
