Manga ending[edit]

Is there any word about the manga ending sometime at 2015? Or is it just the current arc? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:21, 2 March 2014 (UTC)

An article in Neo Magazine states that Naruto is coming to a close pretty soon.[1] Malcasablanca (talk) 11:41, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Wikipedia is not the place to discuss this. Do your own research. —KirtZMessage 14:55, 7 July 2014 (UTC)

Update the friggin second paragraph of the lead section.[edit]

Still says "will end" on nov 10. This is what happens when you protect an article indefinitely. Meanwhile, the process of hiding edit summaries is going on promptly. -- (talk) 12:58, 20 November 2014 (UTC)Aka Googleman


Naruto is currently the top article in the Anime and Manga area, but also not a Good Article. The article's plot is a bit excessive even for the length of the series, but it is not a high priority. Production is entirely on the manga when this is about the whole. Advising a splitting off while retaining production summaries. Under the Media section, the manga is section is fine and the two anime sections are also adequate but need some updates. The Spinoff and OVAs should be worked on a bit. The film section starts to fall apart and needs to be reorganized. The music, video games and novels are a bit sparse. The whole "Reception" section seems like a complete and total cop-out and serves to do almost nothing for the reader that a broad-type article would expect in so many words. My advice is to provide better context and structure for the article with sections on the Setting: laying out the world of Naruto. Themes of Naruto - which is entirely absent now. Reconfigure the production to be the conception aspect - which it almost does perfectly in its current form. The biggest change will be removing the reception aspect and replacing it with a more relevant impact section which will not highlight individual elements in detail, but establish a secondary overview of the entirety with a focus on a larger picture. Part of this could be an analysis of the work as a whole, but we are missing a lot of key details and discussion points because Naruto has boxed itself into an overly large article.

Splitting and expanding to fill the gaps will need to occur. Also, given the size and scope of Naruto, it might be easier to make an Index type article to break down the media. We have 72 volumes of manga, 22 TV seasons and numerous offshoots and films. 58 video games that could be upmerged from List of Naruto video games and then the oodles of CDs and other media. Naruto presents a great example that such an article could actually work as a dedicated reference page by itself. I've tinkered on this matter before, but action here is all but required given that over 3 million people read this article and it still serves as a poor overview of a very large body of work.

Semi-protected edit request on 2 January 2015[edit]

Hello, this is a random Naruto fan here. I was reading through the plot and noticed on the first sentence of the second paragraph, the article uses the term,"Wave Country," to describe the place Naruto went while the actual denomination is known as the Land of Waves. I feel like such a nerd now. Ugh, my life... (talk) 23:43, 2 January 2015 (UTC)

Yes check.svg Done I have no idea whether this is correct, so feel free to revert if you disagree. Stickee (talk) 23:58, 2 January 2015 (UTC)
