    The debate about whether or not asuma is dead is heating up, we should find out next chapter so let's just get those little poll out of the way. Is that fool dead or not?

    I'm going to go with a no.

    The fact we didn't see Asuma at the end indicates Kishimoto has a less obvious conclusion in mind.

    man, i was afraid of that, but killing off asuma would show that naruto isn't just your typical story.

    *edit* would isn't good enough, i need a corpse.

    What he said. I'm not rooting for Asuma or whatever but Kishi has a history of not killing off good guys and all.

    I also go for no, NOT YET.

    He will die in this battle, but if he was dead, the chapter would end with his death body (but i would not be mad if i am wrong)

    Hehe, judging by some other threads I was thinking I'd be the only one who isn't convinced that he's dead.

    i think he will be pronounced dead in the next chapter, it has to happen, shiks is down the two love boys are incapacitated and back up ain't there, he is surely dead meat.

    He's dead, dammit! Or at least mortally wounded, which amounts to the same thing. Hidan isn't going to miss his own heart, and the stab was a Big Moment (TM). We didn't see Asuma because of the nature of the jutsu; watching Asuma keel over because of a hole magically appearing in his chest isn't as dramatic.

    For the record, Gaara's death was real, too; he just got better.

    I find it unlikely he'd recieve a fatal wound in a chapter but we wouldn't see him die.

    He'll live... for the moment. But I still think he's doomed.

    Meh, until the end of this fight whenever that is.

    Maybe he'll suicide Akatsuki to give the others a chance to escape.

    Let's Face it, Asuma receive a lot of screentime lately, it was pretty obvious that this was his final fight, but he will endure at least another chapter, at most another 3 (i think).

    Also think about the suicide so you escape- thing, but if reinforcement are to come is unlikely.

    suicide!? that is out of the question, asuma can't do anything right now, he isn't going to save himself, if he is to live it is because of someone saving his ass.

    It's very common. The heroes are escaping from the badguys and one stays behind to try and hold them off to give his comrades a chance to get away.

    sure it is common, but in situation it looks like none of them can do much, except shikamaru who is just a little tired or all tuckered out as i would like to put it. Asuma is in no cituation to somehow get the love boys out of the cold grasp of kakazu and say 'take me instead, you three get outta here!'

    Asuma is not dead yet. His last words and the moment of his last breath will be showed in the next chapter. But technically this is the chapter were he is killed so I voted yes.

    He may look weak now but when dying they often get a last burst of strength.

    I'm not saying he'll fight them two on one. I'm saying he'll use some jutsu that stops Hidan and Kakuzu for a few second while Shikamaru puts some distance inbetween them.

    I'd say he's not dead. Whenever Kishi uses Marsala's Big Moment, usually the first page of the next chapter is a mindfuck. You're left thinking "OMFG Asuma died/Deidara blew them up/Sakura slept with Naruto"... and then as soon as you pick up the next issue you find that Shikamaru pwned Hidan's circle/Kakashi black-holed the explosion away/that was henge'd Sasuke.

    Come to think of it, I'd say that's the most likely possibility. Because I like numbers:

    Shikamaru stops the curse somehow: 55%
    Hidan messed up: 15%
    Asuma dies: 15%
    Asuma gets hit and lives: 5%
    Kakazu stops it somehow: 3%
    Other: 7%

    I really want a major good (younger) character to die sometime. And I think Asuma could die in this arc... but I don't think he's dead just yet. And with how Kishi has been in the past with good characters that should die not dying (unless they're like 80)... I have a hard time believing he'll do it, till it's done and over with.

    I'm thinking the stupid reinforcements will show up and help them out a bit. At the very least even if Asuma does die, his body will get back to Konoha somehow, (and someone will have to hold Kakuzu off from that bounty..) for the funeral ect. I'd be shocked if we had a scene of Shikamaru laying on the ground dying as Kakuzu carries Asuma's limp corpse away for the bounty. (as kickass and dark as that'd be...)

    that would be cool, but it would be even better if shikamaru died, simply because it would show that any character could be next...

    He can't die until we know what happened between him and the 3rd.

    I voted yes.. ofcourse we will get a sentimental scene with shika and azuma.. but asuma is a dead man.I mean Kishi has been building up Asuma's death for so long.Asuma will be dieing telling Shika the King they need to protect is naruto(remember the little shogi convo?) stuff like that.. then.. DIE! to bad.. but yeh..

    Yeah, just like Sasori and Chiyo didn't die until we found out what happened with their father/son and the White Fang.
