    Default [SPOILERS for 397 and later] About Itachi's mission...

    I know a lot of people were surprised to learn that Itachi went on a Uchiha killing spree on a MISSION from the Leaf. I know I would've been. But here's the thing: I could've sworn that I heard that as a "spoiler" a long, long time ago, back before we even had an inkling of Madara's existence or relevance to the plot, on this very forum. Someone had written, as a reply to a discussion (whose subject I forget), that Itachi had killed on Leaf orders and Sandaime knew about it. Of course, I immediately scoffed at the idea, but it did stay in the back of my mind for a while, so that when I read it in the past few issues, I didn't get the shock that so many did.

    So what I'm wondering is this:
    1) Does anyone else remember reading something similar on this forum?
    2) How would the person who posted that even know something so early on with so little, if anything, to go on? Did Kishimoto say something in some obscure interview or something? Do we have a member of Kishimoto's team as a forum member (who happens to be fluent at writing English)? Is the poster freaking clairvoyant?

    Legitimate question, and it belongs on the "Questions & Answers" thread in the interest of keeping the Naruto forums orderly. Please be sure to post there next time.

    As for your question, I don't have an answer, but they were probably exploring alternatives to Itachi's motives...even though the 'good guy' demeanor was far from believable back then, people still had to consider it...so I doubt anyone was a clairvoyant :P

    But the thing is (and I probably should have mentioned it), this person explicitly stated that this was a spoiler. He somehow knew this would happen. Or at least, he made it sound as if he knew it would happen.

    yea but a lot of spoilers have gone around, and some people are optimistic and didnt want itachi to be evil so they make stuff up so that he doesnt turn out to be the one in the wrong. thats how fanfics are created.

    and in this case someone wrote one that was correct, or similar

    I remember some bonehead got crucified on here about being pretty damn sure about the Fourth being naruto's dad all the way back when Kishi had only released chapter ~280, but then he stated that it would be revealed by kishi in ch 300, and started insulting everyone.

    Then when that chapter came out, he said "oh you all fell for my trap, of course i was only joking" and got absolutely hammered lol.

    Well the point is, that a lot of theories are being thrown into the air because of the diversity of the manga, and its to no surprise that a few of these theories have ended up being correct.
