TV Tokyo's Sakiyomi Jan Bang!, a variety show that features Shueisha manga such as the Jump family of anthologies, recently did another show of Naruto, and on it they passed along a message from manga author Masashi Kishimoto in which he more than hinted that he's getting ready to wrap things up for everyone's favorite orange clad ninja.
SPOILER WARNING - especially if you've been following the anime rather than the manga
The battle of Naruto and his comrades is in its final phase, in the truest sense of the term. About the Ten Tails, about Madara, and then, about Sasuke…I will continue to raise the tension without restraint, in every way I can! Please follow this story of a boy named Naruto a little while longer, I will greatly appreciate it.
