This has been stated before but this manga should be called Sasuke.
After Sasuke kills Itachi, he'll go after Madara cause Itachi was Madara's accomplice, Now Madara is also the head of Akatsuki, who also happens to have a grudge against Konoha cause the first Hokage beat him back in the old days. Therefore he's going to want do destroy Konoha. From this we know that after a long and drawn out manga with Sasuke hunting Madara/Madara pwning Sasuke a few times, Sasuke will eventually beat Madara, saving Konoha in the process cause Madara was the final badass wanting to destroy Konoha.
This IS the main plot of 'Naruto'.
Now Naruto? He's the side character. He wants to be Hokage blah blah blah, he'll most likely end up Hokage, but only after Sasuke inevitably saves Konoha by killing Madara. He'll also pwn Pain but pain is a minor character. Later on Sasuke and Naruto will kiss and make up and live happily ever after, but be rest assured. Sasuke is the one who does anything really major. If you think about it, Naruto is the side character who just happens to have more connections then say, Shino.
Why do we have Lord of the rings?
Shouldn't be called, Hobbit adventures? or Bilbo great journey?
The thing goes on and on about some little fairy creature carring something important..
And he is no Lord of the rings, he is just someone pointed to bring one thing to another, in other words, he is a mailman.. right?
So by your logic, because something is NAMED after something inside that piece, the story should follow right?
So on lord of the rings, we should have seen the story about some ruler of some kind, and his ruling stuff.. not some two fairy creatures strolling around!
And don't even comment on Shakugan no shana(Shana of burning eyes), a story focused around Yuji Sakai, where he does meet and live with Shana.. but she is just one of the main support characters..
But nonetheless we don't EVEN know if what you said is going to be true or not, or you some kind of psyco-mind-reading-alien that can see the future?
Remember that this manga is not over nor near the end. 10-20 chapters about one character MIGHT seem alot for you, but if you compare with 200 of the MAIN character they don't seem much.
Just because we have a weekly release, having week after week about one character, you just lose sight of the BIG picture! But this is how manga and weekly releases goes! so until Sasuke don't have more then 140ish chapters back to back, don't bring this up, ok?
My god irecinius, i think i fell in love with you. Boy or girl, i don't care. You are my hero. But really, explaining it to them is hardy worth it. They don't really care nor do they understand. There too stubborn because as you said, they don't see the big picture.
Also LtoP89, why not try and not read naruto for a while. Stay away from it if you think thats going to happen. Save the rest of the people who actually read the manga and enjoy it to it's full extent because they keep hearing about how shitty the manga is because of sasuke.
thats cuz if you name it sasuke it doesn't sound right.
trying not to sound like a smart ass, but the prelude to lord of the rings was called "The Hobbit" but nevertheless i agree with you =)
yeah but sauron was not the main char in lotr was he?he was the main bad guy,but how many times was he ever,you know shown?or described?
so kishi does not have a pwn all main char.big deal
it has already been stated that Kishimoto's favourite character is Sasuke,so he would give more of his loving to him, even when the main character is Naruto and the mangas name is Naruto not Sasuke. So 1 year without Naruto or he has to wait is so lame. It lamer that Naruto has hardly ever gotten the spot light in the Manga.
Man, naming the manga Sauske is stupid.
Sharingan would be a better title, since most fights involved them also the plot is about them. Madara used his to control the nine tails, the main antagonist has one and another has two, exactly same with the protagonists. Akaisuki goal has something do with the sharingan too. Oro offered Sauske power for his sharingan.
Of course I could go all day about how often sharingan is mentioned in the manga, that why it should be called that not naruto or sauske.
Well if it was called Sasuke, most likely there would be 10 bazillion complaints about how it should be called Naruto.
Thats just stupid , the main charactar is Naruto , but you dont get it .... you think of the old fashion main charac who always own the whole story .... but Naruto is the lead charac here ... he is the connection between all the charac , who ever an arc talks about , things always return to naruto , nothing can be done w/out him , just imagine Naruto w/out naruto ...
