I don't have a problem with Madara being behind the Kyuubi, because that would be one of the things that would take out one of the best ninja in the world without being fingered exclusively. I don't have a problem with the Kyuubi and Uchiha connections.
I do have a problem with the marginalization of the role of women in the story (how we haven't seen a good fight with a women in it since Oro, Jir, and Tsu back in pt. 1).
I do have a problem with Nagato being obviously second fiddle to Madara. I don't have a problem with him backing Naruto. Maybe it was a little too fast, but overall I don't think Nagato was really evil and he was dying.
I do have a problem with how Kishi made it so that we can expect no one from the main cast to die. Even if they get blown up and stabbed by a person who has absolutely no reason to not kill them (I'm looking at the fact that Hinata gets rocked in one chapter and then in the next there's a throw away panel that shows specifically that she was alive, just screamed fan rage at killing a cast member that has the most number of passes in the manga). After that the deus-ex machina doesn't really matter to me.
Hate Naruto's personality at this point. It's like he loses his spine when doing anything involving Sasuke. Maybe the Sakura storyline coming up will change things for him and make it so that he doesn't have to stick out his neck so much for him anymore.
Hate the fact that Naruto hasn't made an appearance at the Kage conference. Maybe something like that happens this week.
But meh, I don't really get that much of a thrill reading manga anymore, I'm just reading it to have something to do.
