[SPOILER/PREDICTION] If the manga.....
.....continues after the war, how will it continue to stay active in the minds of the fans?
In the current war, we have seen the most powerful shinobis and beasts fighting agaisnt the "Fighting Dreamers"
So it makes us to think that there won't be any powerful villains in the future..... But Kishi has already made his EPIC move on the next arc. What'll be the next arc?
Orochimaru and Kabuto
The first and the last villains
Orochimaru is fighting in the war in order to continue his experiments in the future and his lust for Sasuke's body.
Kabuto is fighting against himself inside Izanami. But if he accepts himself in the end and understands what he really is then he will come back again for Sasuke. After all, he still got the DNA of the other pawns except Orochimaru's. In short he still can use Dragon Sage mode.
Also we have the end of the rope, Naruto VS Sasuke.
In the end, thinking about the WAR as the last arc would be pointless.
You will say that Naruto and Sasuke are currently powerful enough to stomp Orochimaru and Kabuto with their one hand tied and then stage their final battles. Do you think is that really that easy?
If you can give powers then you can take back as well.
The whole war is fought by Naruto and Kurama as the main contribution towards winning.
We have seen, Kyuubi cloaks everywhere on the battlefield.
Why so much focus on Kyuubi's powers?
Unfortunate to say but Kurama will be snatched out of Naruto either at the end of war OR in the near future.
If the show is called Naruto then Naruto has to be a full-fledged Shinobi proving himself on the basis of his own talent.
( Note : I'm not saying that Naruto totally depends upon Kurama )
He proved his worth by fighting against Pain using his own strength for more than half of the battle.
We have seen Sasuke's development as the Uchiha along with his Sharingan evolving to EMS.
We have seen Sakura's development as the strong Kunoichi.
But we have yet to see Naruto's development as the Uzumaki.
Till now Naruto and Kurama are working together. Also Kurama was sealed inside Naruto for a reason. Then what will be the point of keeping Kurama inside Naruto after the purpose is achieved.
Naruto won't keep Kurama sealed inside himself.
What we have yet to see now is....
Naruto's development as a Namikaze and Uzumaki. To become the strongest Uzumaki member.
But till then, Sasuke's character in the manga will be blocked again.
In Naruto VS Sasuke Part 1
Both were shown with a powerup that is Sasuke with complete control over Curse mark whereas Naruto with one-tailed Kyuubi cloak. But now Naruto has completely mastered over Kyuubi and will be more powerful if he releases Kyuubi in complete form. So taking away Kurama from Naruto and Curse mark from Sasuke should be the main point to be considered for their final battles.
Naruto VS Sasuke will happen totally as Uzumaki VS Uchiha. Alone based on their own strength instead of using Kurama as Naruto's ally.
Because if Kurama still remains as Naruto's ally and Naruto wins against Sasuke, then Sasuke will be considered as the winner by Sasuke fans saying Naruto is not capable of fighting Sasuke alone. Although who wins against who will be totally a suspense.
All I need is a fair fight to end the Manga peacefully. No doubts. No queries.
