I had to thank both AOTK's and j_H because they demonstrate the "between a rock and an hard place" situation Kishimoto put Naruto's quest for peace in. He either doesn't deliver a proper conclusion to it or does by making Naruto go OOC. And the worse part is that he could have avoided this lose-lose situation altogether if he kept Naruto's characterization around Jiraiya's death instead of dumbing him down to levels of early Part I.
