After the series of dissapointments I been with Kishimoto in part 2 and end of part 1, I asked myself how would I have written these arcs if I were in his place. It also made me wonder that many of us may have had our own ideas so why not create a thread in which we could all tell our versions without making a 300 page essay (it means put it in short form). So start blasting your ideas! Here are some simple rules you must follow: - Short form (point form if possible). - Start from rescue Gaara arc and uptill the current arc. - Give a valid reason why you would change on the places you did (not cuz 'I AM A X(insert name of the character)TARD'). (let's no bash each other's ideas please everyone is entitled to their opinions and views). Here is mine: Resuce Gaara Arc: - First thing I would like to change is that I would like the Gaara-Deidara battle to be prolonged a little bit. I the sense that I would like a round 2 in the battle, like Gaara waking up in the middle of Deidara and Sasori's little journy to Akatsuki cave and duking out a bit more. - Second I would kill the jinchuukiri die when their bijuu is taken away. I mean we really don't need this, Naruto was always proclaimed to this due to his sealing method. Instead I would rather have the user loses his power but then can be killed off if the baddies want too. In which case we drop the whole Gaara revival crap and have him rescued after Shukaku got extracted and Deidei and Sasori want to end his life. - Third I would put a bit more emphasis on the Kakashi-Naruto versus Deidara battle (a little bit more action, like a new jutsu from each group). WI would totally write the Naruto grows tails in Kn mode out and simply replace it with him being more violent as his time in KN mode prolongs. - Finaly, I would have Chiyo and Sakura battle Sasori like before but with atleast 1 more jutsu from Sakura and have Gaara help them via knowledge. With a similar ending that is Chiyo dies in the end. Spy arc (yeah i figured it's a better name then sasuke rescue 2 arc): - First of all, I would either make Sai into a girl or give some more space to someone like Ino, just to rub on Sakura to start showing abit more expression from her instead of her usual 'sasuke-kun/cry' modes of part 1. - I would have atleast a better face-off between Sai-Naruto and Team 10. Maybe showing a bit more weapon skills from Naruto since he did pull out a kunai instead of the usual KB for all purpose act. - Their small training I would keep it as it is, except for Naruto trying to rasengan (i mean seriously we had enough of in in the fillers). Have the Sasuke is a traitor comment a bit more elaborated, I think Sai being a girl would have helped alot here. - When they do face off against Orochimaru and Kabuto, I would again cancel out the tail crap and simply have Naruto go more wilder attacks with less and less restraints. Have Sakura involve more like a little 1 hit medic vs. medic battle. Same results in the end of the battle. - I would totally kill the base camp shit and just make it a small gathering place for Oro's troups. I would also have Yamato send a pigieon to Konoha before going in it, cuz that's the logical thing to do. - I would keep the Sai bg story the same except for him easily believing into the Naruto way. It's more fun to have her this way. I would also have the Sasuke versus new Team 7 face off, but skip the crappy Kyuubi part. Did i mention I would make Sasuke look less gay? - As for the ending of the battle, well maybe a little bit more action, but basically the same ending that is Naruto is too hurt from his Oro fight to be a power, Sakura having more courage but possibly more scared by the new Sasuke, I mean why not pull a genjutsu on her and have her cancel it but still be affraid of the evilness that has consumed him? Sai being more bitchy about how she felt she had Sasuke in her grasp. Sasuke without Naruto in the fight actively would be towering on Sai and Sakura while Kabuto will match up against Yamoto and Orochimaru will do some of his MJ remarks (u really don't want one of the main vilans to be serious when he is not in his final battle or credible battle). - Finally I would have both group escape with a small Konoha force vs. Sound force action. Sai would be arrested, but before doing so she would redeem herself a bit like say taking a blow for one of her teammates showing us that although she may not like Sasuke she honors the role of a team player. This would further complicate NaruSai relationship, cuz now he can't really hate him since she is a team player, just doesn't share the same opinion on Sasuke. - I want Danzou hunted but the guy manages to elude Konha forces and officially defects to Orochimaru side, but given Danzou's small plan to eliminate Sasuke to have more shared power, Orochimaru treats him the old 'there is no friendship among thieves' in the sense that he takes Danzou's force but gives Danzou on a silver platter to Konoha while making Danzou's ANBU believe that there master got caught by accident in his twisted way. Bounty Arc (or current arc): - First, I will cut the crap of Naruto not knowing the nature and shape of jutsu thingy to simply him not knowing that the Rasengan wasn't orginially the final jutsu the 4th wanted when he created and thus sending him to finally make out what the 4th wanted. - I would also add in that Naruto most likely knows fire, earth and wind manipulations but not at the level to create 'that' jutsu. So the wind training is more like a advanced training to gain that knowledge. - Asuma would be helping him, by showing the difference between a regular win and an A rank wind attack (aka Asuma shows off). - I would have Asuma team face of against Hindan and Kakuzu, but with more action like Asuma trying that power move on Hidan once Shika temporary decursed him. Of coz Hidan wouldn't die but would be seriously injured then repaired by Kakuzu. - The struggle will last a bit more, where we get to see Asuma shine more, but Hidan ultimately wining in the end due to the first blow he inflicted on Asuma. - Kakuzu would kill the two dimwits or atleast Kotetsu for being a moron. Hidan would be severly damaged and finally die via the coalition of Team Aoba. Asuma would also die ala 283 (now that he had his shining moments it's okay). Kakuzu escapes. - We get a nice farewell to Asuma in his funeral, learn a bit more with the msyerious link with Kurenai (the baby?) and so on. Kinda get the hard side of trying to build a family ala shinobi. - Naruto finally achieves to build a wind jutsu with the Rasengan, but it isn't really the one the 4th intended, so he will be back to the drawing board but will have this one to play with for the moment (kinda like Chidori --> Raikiri thing with Kakashi). This is mine so what is yours?
