What this manga needs is to flesh out the other characters that made the Naruto pre-timeskip awesome. This is turning out to be like Goku and Vegeta being the only people that can take on anyone while everyone else helplessly wait for their death.
^Yeah, though I thought Gohan was pretty nasty until Akira made a bitch move and had satan (the fricken comic relief character of the series) saved over him...lol Another co-out in order to make Goku the hero again. Gohan would have dropped the suppressive fire all over Kid Buu (Gohan pretty much wiped his ass with Super Buu). DBZ accomplished its goal when I was a kid though, looking back characters deserving praise were given short time in the lime (what the hell is that? why even hype them for them to be reduced to cheering fans)...
Naruto's supporting characters need work definitely. When we see Sakura being reduced to what she is, Yamato turning into Naruto's possy, and Kakashi being killed and revived, and then having him being announced Hokage only for Tsuande to wake up seconds later isn't really in good taste.lol And Sai instantly becomes Dr. Phil makes you pounder "WTF."
