IS it just me or is the post-timeskip Naruto lacking a lot of humour? Except for the the bell test which lasted one chapter there has been no real laughs. I know the save gaara arc is a serious one but looking back at the haku/zabuza arc (which was also pretty serious) there was some humour in the end; with naruto's kage buushin and naruto trying to eat the food off haku/zabuza's grave (i think thats wot it was) It would be nice if there was a little more humour in between the akatsuki fights, chiyo and sakura maybe not but naruto/kakashi vs. deidara could really use some, esp. since naruto has been on a kyuubi-high and his usual stupid remarks have been replaced by dead-serious vows to save gaara and very unusual flashbacks between him and gaara which is very un-naruto like. I know its just a personal preference but i really enjoyed naruto when there was more humour in between the battles. Maybe the series has taken a turn after the timeskip but i hope kishimoto would stick with his roots, especially now akatsuki has been introduced, there would obviously be more death, humour becomes ever more important to provide temporary relief and a change of pace for both the in-story characters as well as us readers.
