I think he did. And thats how Boruto came into the world.. The son rebelling against his father
Seriously though, Kishi did some great things. Not always the most original, but still.. I enjoyed pt1 a lot, and early pt2 was good too. Especially the parts with Pein/Nagato. After that though.. Perhaps it really is the editor who made Naruto as good as it was.
I had a discussion with someone else about this: it seems as if Kishimoto is able to ask questions, but not really able to answer them. He can start a plot, but the end of it is a mess. The end of Naruto is a mess. And the end of Gaiden will most likely be rushed as well. He just crams too much stuff into it, and seems unable to properly plan things out.
Though.. writing a fanfic taught me that planning ahead is extremely difficult
Its one of the reasons why The Last disappointed me.. I mean, everything was in place, even after Naruto for no apparent reason 'forgot' about Hinata's confession during the Pein arc, he was now at the very least partially aware of how important he was to her, and at the end of the war they were standing together at Neji's funeral.... and then another two year timeskip?
NH should've had development post-Pein, but it never got it. Personally, I think Kishi never did it because he was scared he'd scare off the NarSak fandom (just look at the response to ch700.. I doubt he ever expected the pairing wars to derail so far). But to go with another timeskip..
I guess you're right. He has no clue on how to do romance. Only drama. I pity his family
I'll check out Journey's End soon! Has been years since I saw DBZ, nostalgia
Except I'm not, the first was, the second was an invitation to just try to shoot one.
If talking to her isn't allowed then you made a mistake in taking sides, this is a casual conversation at best.
This is something IC I'm allowed to deal with on my own terms.
