Nope it's just a bad drawing of the Rinnegan, it said he got his "eyes" so why give him a semi Rinnegan.
Yeah, it's the rinnegan, which is absolves kishi slightly. You can tell because it has one more ring than a sharingan would have. Both characters aren't the best drawn though imo.
But what that means is that the byakugan stemmed from the rinnegan, and then the sharingan stemmed from the byakugan. Which I guess is fair enough, due to evolution. However, what Madara is saying is that the Sharingan, the most diluted of the eyes carries the vengeance side-effect. This is kind of stupid imo, because that should mean that all the other eyes possess it too, and it should be more potent in the others, especially Nagato, who if you remember, was appeased by a few words from Naruto.. which is something Madara said won't work on Sasuke, because he has the vengeance of the eyes... this doesn't add up.
And regarding the above posts claiming Kakashi doesn't know what he's talking about, as if Kishimoto intentionally wrote it several years ago that he would be giving misinformation. Give me a break. It's obvious for all intents and purposes Kishimoto wrote that the sharingan came from the byakugan, and now through lack of attention and the recent lazy writing has made some oversights. It's funny that you guys make excuses for him by saying that kakashi is a bad source of information, and prefer to then accept a story from the main antagonist of the story Madara instead.

I for one never said he was wrong but I did say the way he put it and the way Kishi writ it made it seem as if it was a myth or as if he wasn't 100% on the subject. But as I said at the time I never read to much into it because I never believed that it was true, thats why this doesn't bother me as much. Kishi always does things like this and people lose there minds over it, and later it's all cleared up.
Firstly can I say that people who quote Kakashi might as well quote a rock. The guy is complete idiot (standards set by Kishi). I'm not going to go into detail about every stupid thing he's said.
Point is Kakashi can't be trusted. Quote rocks instead.
