Re: Naruto 435 predictions.
I agree, that's why he has half of the chacra and the other is locked away. So that he would not depend on it, or so I think.
But that doesn't change the fact that he now shuns the fox and fears to use it's powers. Fear in the main character like this is never good and needs to be resolved for him to grow even more. Naruto is going towards a more balanced force like Minato was. The opposite can be sayd about Sasuke, he is driven by fear and hate and now revenge. He is not stable or balanced, but powerful non the less. In the end the only thing that can save sasuke is calmness, enter Naruto.
As I said, yes it's the right choice to leave demonfox so that he can become powerful by himself but sometime he will have to face the demon inside again, that's something he needs to realize.
