Re: The ninja system - "there can be no peace or order"
Tzu - From what Ive seen on this forum Kishi certainly seems to model the manga on either historical fact or legend but I must admit Im fairly ignorant on either. Naruto has said he will become Hokage since day 1 and surely he must do? I personally feel that he will become a/the leader but quite how he will bring nations together is beyond me and would surely prolong the manga for some time.
I also agree that the ninja system will go on - It's the basis of the story and the basis of Naruto's belief. However, Pain's view of the ninja system has already been framed by Kishi as a "warped idea of peace".
