A good writer would do that. Kishi ain't no good writer (and he sure as Hades ain't great).
I think the vast majority of us are reading just to see what type of clusterf___ Kishi is going to end this story with. My money is on the rainbow rasengan in which he gathers energy from everyone else, on super edo-Madara who is controlling the juubi like he did the kyuubi in his fight with Hashirama... and in the end, Naruto sacrifices himself. Sasuke becomes Hokage... Naruto's face is the last one to go on the Hokage mountain. And why does Naruto die... because talk no jutsu finally fails!!!!
