>Make a solid arc
>Fuck it up with hur dur revival jutsu and now everyone is okay
Was kishi threatened by fans with all those characters killed off before the shitty ending?
>falling for Kishimoto's editor excuse
he simply wants to end his manga and make all the cash possible and have others do spinoffs with novels and the monthly manga shit while he gains more yen off it.
it was planned from the start, the deaths were used for shock value. It is a common tactic for shounen to kill an important character and then bring him back with asspulls. Most commonly know for it is Dragonball.
This is now a Naruto thread so lets discuss the villains of Naruto
Zabuza was just doing his job
Orochimaru wants knowledge
Itachi just wanted stability in Konoha no matter what
Kisame wanted a purpose for existing
Pein wanted peace
Kabuto just wanted acceptance and to be like Orochimaru.
Obito wanted to rape an infinite amount of Rins
Madara wanted to off humanity to become a god
The bijuu just were sick of humans being racist to them.
Kaguya just wanted to reclaim her planet back and make a zetsu army for some reason
Toneri wanted to make Hamura proud by destroying the earth
Momoshiki and Kinshiki wanted to recreate the god tree to get god fruits become immortal superbeing forever.
All in all the villains were decent.
the ending should have been sauce vs. naruto immediately after the pain arc, with MAYBE tobi/obito being the last minute kaguya final boss
it brought closure to the entire Muh Recognition theme and would have headed off most of the excessive bullshit the series became at the end.
> 3 day long war taking 3 years to convey
> quadruple-crossing surprise bosses
> special snowflake reincarnations of Sot6P kids
> tailed beasts were actually good guys all along guys
> coolest guy
the excessive team Taka bullshit would still have been a huge black mark on the series, but the real damage could have been drastically mitigated.
> defending dr. snakes' bungling adventures at the summit
> zombie rehash of every powerful character to ever live except jiraiya
> liking various flavors of animate trees as final bosses
the last 5 years of the series were almost pure shit, anon.
>thinking there was any tension left in the Naruto universe after Kishi backed out of killing Choji and Neji
