I definitely like it. I really like how Kishimoto is showing Naruto is looking more grown up. He is midway through his 16th year now, so nearing the change in style to how Kishimoto draws 17-19 year olds. (Sakura's hit that point in this arc- turned 17. I noticed Kishimoto did subtly change how he drew Sakura at the start of the war arc- she now looks like a female character 17-19 years old, in his style.) That range is the first range where the characters look adult, the face is still softer than 20-24, and softer yet than the full adult face of 25-29 but the adolescent roundness of the jaw is just about gone and the size of the eyes in proportion to the face gets smaller, and the nose gets slightly more defined.
