HOW ABOUT WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED WITH THE MAIN CHARACTER?
Naruto's done exactly three things in the past 2 years of real time:
Trained his rasengan to become stronger
Used it to One-Hit-Kill some kind of immortal tentacle rape god that was beating the shit out of anyone else (distracting him with a shadow clone first though, well hey!)
And then nothing. For like 100 chapters.
What the fuck is he doing?
He was staring at the diary Kabuto left him for like, 50 chapters, and now he's been staring at Tobi for 50 more
