Ah this takes me back. The ground laid for such a great story, ruined by Shonen Jump greed and Kishimoto's insufficient resistance... I wish you and the your epic dA fanart relatives would come together and make an awesome doujinshi.... or you can just continue being so awesome and original. still here lurking on ledges above you every chance I get. the view is awesome
I've read from fairly reliable sources that there is a very strong rumor that Kishimoto wanted to end the series years ago, but the series was such a money maker that they just wouldn't let him, they made him do more and more arcs.
This wouldn't be new, this has happened before, with Dragon Ball, which was not supposed to be as long as it was but it was such a money cow that they wouldn't let Toriyama stop.
