How will Kishimoto resolve this Asuma/Sarutobi clan thing?

    Asuma's apparent death has left a lot of unresolved questions. For example :
    • His relation to Konohamaru
    • The reason for him leaving Konoha
    • And his estranged relationship with his dad, Sandaime Hokage, and the Sarutobi clan
    Do you guys think Kishimoto will resolve the aforementioned questions anytime soon, or will he leave us hanging? And if he does, who (which character) will he use to explain it? The most logical characters, IMO, would be Kurenai, Kakashi or Gai via some kind of flashback, although it would be interesting if you guys have other theories.

    Thanks in advance for your replies!

    These questions are not important at all plotwise. What has been emphasized is the "King" issue. The rest can remain unexplained, I don't care.

    This next chapter should hopefully clear a lot of this up. If not in the next, then everything will most definitely be clear to us within a few chapters.

    Gotta love all the interest in Asuma now that he's dead. He was trash before dying and even more so after dying. Forget about him and his loser family already. They just weren't tough enough for the world of Naruto.

    i think it wont be resolved in the visable future... mabe a "konoha" gaiden would sort all these questions out. Kishimoto wrote in alot of characters with loose ends,

    bleh. if a story never had anything that made u question then you won't remember that story and it'll be a failure so maybe there isn't much of a need to know abt their history etc. is it even proven asuma = sandaime's son?

    If your definition of "proven" is having Asuma openly admit to it, then yes, it has been proven. .

    Myabe we are going to know another Sarutobi, or Kurenai is going to tell his story, I bet that in next chapter his relation with Konohamaru would be cleared (if Konohamaru is not there, Asuma would be his uncle for granted).

    I doubt it will be covered in any great detail. I might even say, we'll never know who Konohamaru's dad really is.

    Just like we'll never know about Sasori's parents and Kakashi's father.

    in his "loser" family there was one of the greatest hokages, teachers, and ninjas ever (refering to Sarutobi sensei) and Asuma himself was one of the 12 elite guards. now i know that we have not learned much about the 12 guards, but they were most likely the 12 strongest under the hokage. Its not their fault that they had to fight some of the strongest villians, i bet any other character would die too

    there's no Sarutobi clan

    Konohamaru is most likely his and Kurenai's son

    as for why he left?, that we have to wait for

    They're losers because they lost their fights and died. If they had won their fights and lived they would be winners. Also just by having Konohamaru in the family anything good they ever accomplished is cancelled out. I'm sorry but these guys are even sadder than the Uchihas. At least the Uchihas have Itachi to be proud of.

    NooOOoo!!! I like Asuma, but they gotta keep him dead. I don't want it to end up like DBZ, having him continue to be dead will cement the seriousness of being alive, geeeeet it? lol. Next thing you'll know it'll be like "Naruto, we need the seven dragonballs to stop Sasuke from destroying Konoha!" :nod
