Kakuzu was a push over in the end. Both he and Hidan got their asses handed to them in brown paper bags [don't come back now] by some kids; hardly a fight worth recalling when one looks back on it.
Compared to someone as fast as Sasuke, or say a Sharingan user, or Pain and his multiple bodies and eyes, he's going to have problems. He needs a power up and fast. He definitely needs a motivating force, to push himself into the class Sasuke, Madara aka Tobi, Pain and company or he's dead; it'll probably come in the form of information of his Sensei's death, his father's identity and more.

Naruto's defeating of Kakuzu was a joke. It was supposed to show us how powerful Naruto became with his new Jutsu, but all it really did was confirm that the Kazeshuriken is just a stronger Rasengan with a heavy toll on Naruto's body.
Kakuzu had most of his hearts destroyed before Naruto even jumped into the fight, and was already weakened. All Naruto had to do was jump in with his big ass revamp of a revamp of a Jutsu and finish him.
All Naruto has going for him is the stupid Kage bushin jutsu he's been using since the FIRST CHAPTER. The fact that the Kyuubi gives him nearly infinite chakra to maintain them just makes it an uber spam Jutsu. Naruto's speed is terrible, but it's because he's the "Shonen hero" that the enemy will never jump out of the way from a kid in an orange jump suit running slowly at them screaming "RASENGAN" at the top of his lungs, hitting, and killing them.
Sasuke is a genious, with loads of Jutsu, sharingan, and cursed seal. Naruto is a retard with 3 Jutsu and unlimited chakra.
I think Narutos time will come. I don't think that this manga will go on for so long. Just defeating Akatsuki and getting Sasuke back and then the story's over.
Yep Naruto needs to grow up.
I actualy think that Jiriah Sama has made some preparations that will ensure rapid growth in Naruto. The triggers will be:
a) Naruto's emotional trauma when he hears of Jirah's (seeming) death.
b) The Naruto Key being delivered or unlocked by the key toad. I suspect the key will do more than just unlocking the Kyubbi's Chakra, Something tells me that Minato might have left another (unknown) gift in store for his son.
I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise
Growing Old Gracefully is an Oxymoron ... Mostly Moron !
well,sasu is kishi's baby...naruto gets nothing
...i feel bad for narutobut it's because he's the "Shonen hero" that the enemy will never jump out of the way from a kid in an orange jump suit running slowly at them screaming "RASENGAN" at the top of his lungs, hitting, and killing them.
what is with people and sharingan anyway, damn, i know that sharingan is powerful and all that, but u guys are acting like it's the most powerfull thing in the universe seriously come on. am sort of getting sick of sharingan all the time
