Re: Has the War Arc gone on too long?
Most probably Kishi put other arc within the war arc.
for example, several chapter on Obito Madara - could be a arc by itself.
Seem that war arc include planning, storing of food, medicine, weapon, edo, etc
I think there were be another maybe 2 to 4 arcs. as Kishi said could end in early 2014.
how about 1 arc totally for Naruto & Hinata. (getting married)?
another about Sasuke vs Naruto
then again another about Naruto tour, just like SO6P and Jiraiya search.
also one on Sakura & Tsunade - handling over on medic and her future, whatever.
(to please both Sakura Hinata fans)
