    Since Chapter 323 we don?t have the cover of the chapter. Has Kishimoto decided to eliminate the cover of the chapters? Will we have chapters with cover again?

    It means more pages for the storyline so I'm happy.

    story > cover. I prefer this method. Kishimoto should not make formal covers anymore UNLESS he has a colored spread page.

    Ever heard of laziness? I actually prefer them with a cover but Kishi's the one who's drawing, he decides.

    ^ Actually it's the other way around, a manga panel is harder to draw than a pin-up like cover... ;)

    I prefer how it is now too because lately the cover page hasn't really had anything to do with the story anyways.

    My guess is that Kishi had basically planned how this long Kakuzu + Hidan battle would go, and he knew it would be very long. (its been 6 chapters now?) So he wanted to devote the entire manga to the battle to make it as short as possible.

    I actually really like the covers though, it sets a cool mood to the chapter and gives it style. Hopefully he'll start doing them again now that this battle is over. (or is it?!)

    By the way, does anyone know how often Kishi does colored pages, or is it completely random? I'd like to see him do a colored page when Naruto finally masters his new jutsu.

    It's most likely because we've been in the middle of a fight. It'll probably start again soon.

    i think that it makes the story, this little mini-arc, very subtly, allot more congruous and pulse pounding:)

    Correct me if I am wrong, but with a cover we only get 14 pages of manga, without the cover we get 15.

    One more page can make a huge difference, if there were cover pages the chapters wouldn't end the way they do. I think Kishi just wants the best for his fans...I don't mind, really...

    The covers were boring and pointless anyway.

    I only want colored covers for fanart purposes. I hate the other ones.

    I think story>cover because it puts flow into the story when a battle is happening. If there were a cover during the battle, it would sort of disrupt that flow. Therefore, better extra pages of manga than covers.

    :huh...what's the picture for?
    But yeah I guess it's like what they said before about the space and whatnot. I won't like and say it wasn't a bit of a trade off though. The extra page is definately an upgrade, but the pictures are quite nice to look at.

    I think there should only be covers if they're actually inventive in some way. The portrait covers suck so much, but sometimes Kishimoto will do a kickass cover. I'd much rather have the extra page of story.

    Hellz yesh I agree. No cover and more manga makes anybody happy.
    I don't really pay attention to the covers anyways. :|

    I like covers for the calmer chapters... Plus, they can foreshadow things to talk about, usually when they're colored ^^

    Yeah I mean I love the covers but like Grrblt says, no cover = story. X # of panels extra story telling time on that page. I'm sure we might see some covers in the future again, but probably for the rare holiday/celebration (anniversary covers) and such. Also, Naruto has been around long enough it's time for them to start packaging up some nice, color, glossy graphic novel versions that'll probably have their own unique collectable covers, so he might be saving spiffy cover ideas for that.

    Either way, more story, the better =)

    It seems to me he doesn't have a cover if something major happened in the previous chapter (like Hidan's beheading) and he probably figures you immediately want to keep going, not wanting a cover.

    Of course, this is not always the case, as seen by the manga, but it does happen. At the moment we're in a gritty battle at the moment, or at least we were, so there may be one next week.
