Climactic, but hasn't been great since invasion of Pain. Sasuke is one of the most unsympathetic characters in all of anime. His character arc has been a huge waste of time, and the Fourth Great Ninja War has been a colossal disappointment. The one-on-one, drawn out battles are really monotonous when played back to back, Kishimoto is developing every other character besides the ones that need development, (Hello? Shino and Tenten?) and, for God's sake, NO WAR ARC SHOULD BE DRAGGED OUT THIS LONG! All I can say is, at least things seem to be wrapping up, and while the plot is still piss-poor, there is at least a feeling of climax to it all, and the Tobi/Kakashi stuff is by far the highlight of the war.

One hand love it as a huge fan on the other as a critic it could be much better I did like the one on one battles mostly because it gave unseen characters face time and so often you see whole wars ending in a few chapters I don't know if you guys read Ubel Blatt, but it took very few chapters to almost end what could have made a great in-depth story. Sasuke flipping back was not particularly exciting, but "The Real" team seven hooking back up as like a new version of the Sannin is awesome. I'm saying 8/10 on its current course could move up depending on the ending.

It's horrible presently. I'm a big fan of it until after the time skip. I know tons of people who just read it to make fun of it, which includes me now. Kishi will be a one hit wonder cuz mario was trash.

Again I'm a fan of the first half but now it's shit and pretty much in my view fan fiction.

Getting worse and worse with the writing imo. I'm hoping it will end soon to be honest.

I'd say it still has another 1-3 years before it ends. Milking anime is the only thing people seem to know how to do.

We had spent the entire series building Sasuke into this dickhead villain, kind of a foil for Tobi. Now, 630 something chapters in, all of a sudden he's a good guy again. That's my only beef. It may just be me, but it felt rushed as fuck.

I mean, if the Shodaime says it, then that's like the word of God. Fuck what the maybe-next Sage of Six Paths is trying to tell you, but if one of the founders of Konoha tells it, you gotta believe that shit!

It could just be me, but things right now are just seemingly nonsensical. I love the reincarnated Sannin, don't get me wrong. On the other hand, I hate the "give other characters manga time, when I paid practically no attention to the bastards for pretty much the whole series" concept that's going on. They hardly got any attention before, and giving them it now certainly doesn't justify the shitstorm that's going on in some fans' minds, at least in my opinion, which on the Internet, I tend to get flamed for.

On a more positive note, definitely looking forward to Madara vs. Hashirama, and the finale of Tobi vs. Kakashi. Hell, maybe we might see the Juubi's death in the next year if we're lucky!

I tried to avoid spoilers for the occasional idiots who are gonna stroll on this and then possibly gripe about something that they haven't gotten to in the manga, when, let's face it, this kind of thread is near-impossible to keep spoiler-free to begin with. Forgive my long and explosive tangent, for I cannot write or type short if I tried. This is Zachman, otherwise known as Zach, or SplitterLove, and I am out.
