Luphrecio, ddemetrius456 and ivanov, I'm a bit of an introvert in real life, so making new friends means a lot to me. Thanks.:D
Just so that someone doesn't get the wrong idea, my 'predictions' on the previous page were mostly meant as parody like many of the others. But I meant what I said about the Naruto-Sasuke imbalance. Instead of rolling your eyes please read the next para, my detractors.
Seriously considering the matter: Naruto does have excellent taijutsu in Sage Mode. But his speed feats thus far have not been on Raikage's level(too fast for even Sharingan to see), so he may not overpower Sasuke as easily even without Mangekyo. Additionally Sasuke can still ward off his attacks by stunning him with the Chidori Nagashi shield(provided he doesn't forget it due to PIS), something that he couldn't use on Raikage because of the latter's Raiton armour. And there's still the matter of genjutsu; given Naruto's penchant for standing still and giving speeches on the battlefield Sasuke will have more than one good opening to Tsukuyomi him(again, absent PIS).
And what do you think Naruto can do after Sage Mode wears off? The fight's definitely going to last longer than a few minutes and I can't see the duration increasing much more. Sasuke can kill regular Naruto a dozen different ways, the Kagebunshin blitz didn't work at VOTE and won't work now and I doubt Kishimoto would let Naruto use Kyuubi(not because of favouritism but because he'd want Naruto to save his friend using his own power).

As i've said MANY times I like the ninjutsu display so I enjoy watching sasuke's fights (even though i kinda hate him) because he gives me what I want to entertain me...alotta ninjutsu, Genjutsu, and taijutsu (The full ninja package). Naruto only does taijutsu (yea he has ninjutsu rasengans but i dont count those much cause he always does them and since he runs into people with his rasengans it has a hint of taijutsu in my book). YES if you stack naruto and sasuke up side by side with a ninja criteria sheet, like how the academy grade reports look, (i.e Ninjutsu:A Taijutsu: A :Shuriken: B etc etc) naruto falls far behind... fails actually but thats as far as it goes. As Flash as elaborately (on a timely basis) pointed out just because naruto is not TECHNICALLY even with sasuke on those fields that doesn't mean its a cut and paste lose for him and a 100% win for sasuke, as u seems to believe.
Would I want to see Naruto learn more ninjustu and stuff?? HELLLZ YEA, I mean he has the potential to fukin learn EVERY JUSTU known to man screw the sharingan Orochimaru should be envious of HIM, but i've come to grips with the direction Kishi wants to take in emphasizing the polarity of his main 2 protagonist (well I protagonist and antogonist I guess). I agree with you Witch when you say that Kishi is giving naruto the shitty end of the stick and giving sasuke new stuff left and right (I FULLY agree with you and support you in that observation), but what your missing about me and Flash and quite frankly why we, not nes. avoid you, but more or less refuse to respond to you comments is because of the redundancy in them. Every week is the same thing over and over about naruto being eions behind sasuke this and that. Your feelings of frustration about this matter its a broken record. I agreed with you once do you want me to give you kudos every time :/?? Our comments towards you arent personal at all man so dont take it that way. I got frustrated about this shit too but i came to grips with the reality of the situation. I want naruto to learn more but at this point I dont expect much out of him (maybe 2-3 more stuff 1 of which should be elemental wise) but I just sit back and watch the story unfold and try to enjoy it for what it is. If he learns more that'll be a pleasant and welcomed surprise if not so be it. He doesn't know much like sasuke but when they fight best believe that kishi wouldn't make sasuke's arsenal of glitzy techs be that much of a crucial factor. As much as I dont like it naruto does alot with the little he as.
PS Witcher: I consider you a online friend :). Even though we butt heads most of the time your high up there on my respect list.
Well, I've accepted the reality too. But that doesn't mean I can't be grumpy about it. Just giving Kishi blame where due.
HAHAHA. Well with that being said i'll get off your case :P. All this time iw as thinkin you weren't intellegent enough to not see that, no offence.
guys i've been in this forum for years and i've come to really love the discussions that we have every chapter. almost every time i look forward to witcher's posts cuz to me we both have the same gripes about naruto and sasuke and the way kishi treats naruto like an unwanted stepchild at times often neglecting his progress. i understand how frustrating it is to like a character and hardly ever get to see that character own on the battlefield and get the respect and love he deserves. yet the emo guys get all the ladies and cool moves. i also gripe about the other charactes in the manga that don't get to fight at all except against themselves (neji, lee and gai). i also try to respond to anyone that's on the board when they are online. all we can do is hope that one day naruto will get his due but i'm afraid that it will be just before the manga ends. which to me still won't be justice for naruto tho. he should be the star in his manga. to me tho naruto is still the shiznit cuz he has the kage bunshin - imagine the possibilities with that jutsu alone... he could literally pwn anybody in the manga if kishi uses his imagination a little.... shiiiinobiiiii hoooopinnng fooor juuuutssuuu weeeeepiiiing fooooor naruuuuuutooooo
And thatīs why in fanfictions some authors tend to make Naruto super powerful and/or bash Sasuke (and even Kakashi to some extent). After a while it gets boring, but those guys really want to see an awesome Naruto...
About Witcherīs comments : I always enjoy them, cuz I like the irony/sarcasm. And itīs not always quite the same, so I canīt say Iīm already bored - but still, tone them down a bit, that way you have more time to talk with us about other stuff and not only about how Kishi wanks to Sasukeīs manga pic xDD
1) Like Krazy and Blue, I really like to read Witcher's comments. I like krazy's link with Batman-Joker relationship as well :) . In fact, I enjoy to read any post here in general !
2) The problem is, when there's no chapter, yes there's no chapter to read but there's almost no posts to read as well, and THAT is boring :'(
yeah guys seem to abandon the forum when there's no chapter. wish it could be more lively in here today..... Helloooooo! annnyyyy shiiinoooobiiiii hheeeere.
