After seeing the series pass the 160 episode mark, and after seeing alot of scenes draged out, I was kind of wondering wether or not the series was nearing it's end (hopefully not soon ). But I was, because 2 respected anime series (Ranma 1/2 and Inuyasha) ended at 162 and 167 episodes respectfuly, so I was wondering if Naruto would suffer the same fate! Hopefully not because the series has so much more story to tell! But has anyone heard anything about this? Or are they detrimined to turn this in a Dragonball Z or better yet a Detective Conan and have the series go 350+ episodes?
