On topic: ^^^ A Similar thought process also applies the the ninja world. No one knows EXACTLY when all this stuff happened. Kishi purposely left many important facts ambiguously mysterious because of how he writes on the fly. And while there are a few plotholes, the amount of them is greatly reduced by his writing style

If you're half the man I am today, you're twice the man you were yesterday.
Agreed. For me one of the most infuriating things about this manga is the fact that Kishi doesn't think his plot through. He keeps making up new story details that effectively retcon existing facts or act as unnecessary additions to them(like centering all the ninja world's troubles on some old Uchiha feud, then linking both the Bijuu and the Uchiha-Senju feud to the Rokudo, and now adding Naruto to that feud even though he has no real links to Senju). Plus some of his plot points leave smarter readers scratching their heads over inconsistencies with the past(Why wasn't Danzo around with his 'I want Hokage' shit when Sarutobi died? Where the hell is this all-powerful Senju clan Madara and Sasuke keep talking about?).
As for the Toad Key, I doubt Kishi meant it to hold anything more than what was stated: a way to re-seal the Kyuubi's chakra. It'll probably come into play when Naruto seeks Killer Bee for training, which should't take too long now that Kishimoto's eased his insecurity by giving his ink-and-paper son(and Naruto's rival) full mastery over Mangekyo in preparation.
I'M NO HERO, BELIEVE IT!
^ Well, the Senju clan are (the way I remember it) all the other clans that founded Konoha ( they all went by the name of their leader, Senju Hoshirama (<-?)).
So Naruto could be one of the "Senju"....
And wasn´t it said that the Toad Key thingy contains Kyuubi´s Ying chakra?
I hate going off topic but just to clear this whole Kishi plot talk.
Kishi has said many times that he has the overall plot for the manga, but because of the editor he has to change the way he goes about things, sometimes in the middle of his plot he has to add things because he's been asked and because it's a weekly manga he has to make stuff up along the way to hit deadlines. Most of us should know this already because he's been asked to make back stories on Juugo, Karin and Suigetsu.
So does he have the plot figured out, Yes.
Does he always follow it, No because he's been asked to add to it.
well is all about the cash-cow.
witcher, the reason why danzo didn't go apeshit for the hokage's position after sarutobi died is because Itachi was still around
well my take is that maybe the byakugan's true story will come to the front pretty soon. remember madara is only telling his side of the story to his enemies i might add. how can he possibly wage war with just seven bijuu? akatsuki captured them with two man cells at the time- so are we saying that the akatsuki ninjas areway more capable of fighting against bijuus than every other ninja out there? he may have bijuus but they are not invulnerable. i think danzo may meet up with sakura and company on his retreat- that will be interesting. another tablet another f**ked up theory. im sure that there is another part to this so-called legend that we will see pretty soon. whatever hashirama did to madara had to be really bad for him to be in this state for sooo long--- long live the senju!!! maybe the sharingan was a result of inbreeding from the hyuugas or some experiment went horribly wrong. the reason that madara's plan sounds so shitty is because he wont be able to pull it off- its just uber-ridiculous and way too flawed
If Danzou meets up with Sai he'll have hell to pay since he is disobeying his orders. Who knows maybe he'll even activate the seal on Sai's tongue and kill him as punishment for his betrayal to his commander and now Hokage. Danzou's hardcore like that afterall.
