I more or less agree with you. Karui and Omoi do have a connection with Naruto and everything and while it is plausible Omoi or Karui becoming the next Raikage for some odd reason I doubt it. I guess it could be that Darui's leadership resume at this point is looking pretty impressive while Karui and Omoi hasn't done much of anything recently (unfortunately Darui hasn't done much of anything till now). We'll have to see. Maybe Darui is just being hyped up for this one battle and will be killed or maybe there is a reason why the Raikage passed his technique down to him.

I really hate when that happens; mangakas has the choice, they don't have to follow that "standard".

Why no let some important characters beat Pain's bodies while Naruto beats the main one, and then make clear that Naruto couldn't have won alone agains all the bodies at the same time? But no, Kishimoto made the whole village look weak and useless, because Naruto trainned for a few days and dominated something that took decades for Jiraya.

Well, what I loved about DBZ were the ingenious dialogues, no, I even love them now!
I can't imagine DBZ without all the neat dialogues.

So I've been reading Naruto off-and-on since 2004. And this is probably the most confusing the series has ever been. I understand there's a war, but so... many... characters... Unless you follow the manga every week and pay close attention it's really difficult to understand half of what is going on anymore.

Even if you had been reading it continuously from week to week, this arc would still be confusing. Many of them are just fodder characters whom Kishi felt compelled to give names to, and many others tertiary characters whom have been introduced already but we know nothing about.

I've been following it from week to week and it's nothing confusing to me. It's probably because you've been coming on and off.

The two lightening rods, Naruto and Sasuke, aren't being focused on. The Konoha 11 haven't done much. Basically unless you are a Kakashi fan, there isn't a whole lot going on right now. Minor characters like Kankurou and Darui all of a sudden doing things aren't really going to excite the audience. But at the same time you don't see everyone complaining about the chapters like every week in the Bleach thread.

When something major happens in the war, like an actual meaningful death, or fighting with characters we care about, then the interest should go up.

As for Dragon Ball Kai, I thought I read that it wasn't as much to cut out any non-canon filler, as to trim down the padding. I never saw DBZ, but I read a lot of the criticism was the amount of padding episodes had. Like characters would stare and yap at each other for 10 minutes while they were floating up in the air before fighting. Kai was going to cut out the fat and get to the meat.

Agreed. I have no idea what is happening in the manga right now, but if the blond girl with the jugs continues to get air time and lots of it, interest will peak again soon.
