Yes I know, I'm a bit late to the party here but i finally have the time to give my opinion on the final two chapters of Naruto. Let's start with 699, I love how they had team 7 come together finally. My favorite part though was Kakashi's reaction to seeing his students back together again. And as for him lowering his headband over his now normal eye being a habit, i think he did that more to hide the fact that he was close to crying. Seriously, go back and look at that panel again, he's so happy he was nearly moved to tears. I also loved how the SasuSaku was handled here, as it was true to the characters. And Kakashi became Hokage!
The parts i had most issue with were that there were no interactions from Team 7 and the rest of the shinobi, no NaruHina interaction, and most of all, during Neji's funeral they didn't even show Team Gai! seriously? Kishi could have easily left out the panel of Ino-Shika-Chou and shown Gai, Lee, and Tenten instead.
Moving on, ch 700:
We get character clones! seriously, while i'm happy that NaruHina and SasuSaku are officially canon, i don't like their kids. Bolt i guess is sorta okay but his personality is exactly like Naruto's. Couldn't they have switched it up and made him a bit more like Hinata in personality? and Salad (seriously?) she looks like Karin and that just REALLY bothers me as a SasuSaku fan.
Other pairings made canon are SaiIno and ShikaTema. While i'm perfectly okay with SaiIno, I hate ShikaTema. Yes i know it was hinted enough to see this coming, but i just think Temari could have done better. As for the kids, Inojin is actually my favorite of the new gen kids because she actually seems to have a personality that's her own and not just a copy of one of her parents. I also like ChouChou in that her looks don't bother her (nice change from how Chouji always got mad being called chubby). I don't like the Shika clone with the attitude problem though.
Onto the other characters, Anko, what happened to you? Why Kishi? just why did you do that to her? and it looks like Kishi has continued his sexist views by making Hinata, Temari, and Sakura housewives HOUSEWIVES! What is his problem with taking strong female characters and turning them into housewives? i still can't take Kushina being given that treatment after seeing her past and now Sakura and Temari? Hinata i can kinda understand, but Sakura and TEMARI?! At least Tenten has her weapons shop and Ino is still focused on being a Kunoichi judging on her still finding training important. But Temari, she looks depressed.
Moving onto Asuma and Kurenai's daughter, she looks to be a serious tomboy and from the dialog looks to be getting ready to take a trip with Kakashi and Gai. Is Kakashi her mentor or something? kinda like Tsunade and Shizune? Either way, that's the part i'm mostly interested in seeing.
And speaking of Kakashi and Gai, we just get a quick glimpse of them. Gai stuck in a wheelchair (still seems wrong, but hey, at least he isn't dead) and Kakashi looks so tired. The two are just being nostalgic about the past, we see nothing else with them, but at least they still have that strong bond.
The main issue i have with the last chapter though is technology. I've always thought of the Naruto universe taking place in the past... but they have computers... seriously? At least Naruto became Hokage though.
Overall, i feel that chapter 699 is the true ending. Plus i'm looking forward to the Kakashi novel (hopefully we get a translation of it eventually after it's released).
Soooooo, for those looking for something new to read after Naruto has ended, please check out Flame of Recca. Best manga in my opinion
