From what im reading in the manga i swear kishi is planning to kill off kakashi. Kakashi is taking on Pain by himself while naruto haws no idea whats going on , Tsunade is helping the injured. So basicalyy its Pain vs Kakashi. I dont know how much longer he can hold on.
I will be so mad if kishi kills of kakashi, he's the one person who's off limits for me. I'd rather have anyone else die but not kakashi. seems kishi likes killing off the coool guys , first jiraiya then itachi it better not be kakashi next.
