If Kishi ends the manga in less than 50 chapters (a little more than a year) I think I'd be pretty disappointed because there's been a lot of unresolved development. At the same time, I can't see the manga going for more than three years, since Naruto is nearing adulthood and no manga in shounen jump would stay there if it's titular character was an adult.
I just hope that Kishi doesn't crap out the quality of the manga in his race to finish it.

I'd like Kishimoto to end Naruto as a shonen manga, and continue it as a seinen manga
that's a good one....... i think in the end even when naruto has become a hokage he is still a genin..... just like what he said in his first chuunin exam

I think the last release will be on December 19, 2012.
It'll be the last Jump release ever!!!
It won´t end as soon as some people here are saying, there is alot of unresolved stuff in the sotryline and if Kishimoto ended the manga without resolving them sticking only to the main plot (I.e bad guyz), that would be a testament to his poor writing.
If we´re getting another time-skip and another great ninja war, the manga could might as well go for another full 3 years.
should have been a seinen.
the first time I read Naruto was when I was 21.
now at 31 I want to read a more mature Naruto.
maybe a Hokage Naruto.
and of course more Gaiden...
I've been wondering if by hitting the sage level he didn't just skip all the other rankings in one go. I find it difficult to believe that fighting pein on his own wouldn't give him an honorary classification as well.

For the end of the Manga.. I want to see at least a year or two with him as Hokage, just reaching the title wouldn't be enough when he needs to build the various alliances to form peace and such.
What exactly is a seinen manga, if I may ask? Is their readership normally less than that of shonen manga? (If so, I can see Kishi being reluctant to take Naruto in that direction)
I'M NO HERO, BELIEVE IT!
I would upset, if naruto doesn't his own ninja team. I would like to see him try and lead.
Think City hunter.
