This is mainly here for one question: Does Naruto rely on the Kyubi too much? I know the general opinion is that he, in fact, does. But I just wanted to poll the forum and also hear(read) some other opinions. And while we were at it, I also thought that we should talk(type, whatever) about other Jinchuriki's, though it will probably just be Gaara, as information is lacking on the others.
I should also mention that I searched the forum for related threads, and the search turned up no matching results, so I don't think this thread is redundant.
I, myself, will weigh in later, mainly because I want to double-check certain areas of manga I intend to reference to.
Also, while I know I can't force any of you, try to keep the posts sane, or at least relevant. Even if someone else's opinion makes your brain, nay, your very SOUL, bleed with frustration, exercise restraint. Or at least try.
