Whether naruto is dead or not he wont stay dead for long, whether there is a time jump or not this saga will not be forgotten. What repercussions do you think this will have to the konoha genins. I think naruto gonna lose a lot of his spunk now that he's finally failed a mission and lost a fight. Maybe we'll see a slightly darker, serious naruto. Maybe Sakura will blame and hate naruto (maybe she'll kill herself now wouldnt that be a turn up for the books) perhaps neji will be dissapointed in naruto and slightly dissilusioned, maybe he's dead. Will shikamaru develop a drinking disorder after sending his best buddy to his grave, maybe him and temari will have underage sex. so many possibilities, what the hell is the next saga going to be! ARGH NO CLOSURE gimie next weeks now!
