Nice expression on Sasuke's stupid face on the last page.
What am I seeing here?
^I don't know maybe you wanna give us a bit more detail
Madara and Hashirama truly could have ruled the ninja world because the scale of "Nativity of a World of Trees" and "Advent of a World of Flowering Trees" is insane and Madara's fire jutsu's look like there being breathed out by a dragon there pretty intense, even if Mei could pull of that water jutsu I would find it pretty hard to believe that she could mach it.
The one thing this chapter pointed out for me was that Susanoo is capable of having a full body, which also makes the possibility of Sasuke achieving this to go head to head with Naruto in full Kurama Chakra Cloak.
Well then, I guess we get a chance meeting after all. Itachi unfortunately shouldn't even be able to polish Sasuke's shoes at this point. I believe he had a MUCH better chance fighting Kabuto.

I don't think Itachi is as far behind Sasuke as we think. Itachi was practically the pinnacle of Akatsuki before his eye sight and general health started failing considerably.
As far as I know Itachi isn't experiencing the problems he had in life.
Well we have the ultimate sharingan showdowns. All the Uchiha and psudo Uchiha are in combat. Seems we also know now that Madara didn't originally have Hashirama's abilities. But did develop the rinnegan before his death. Meaning that it is something strictly to the Uchiha alone or Senju alone that can trigger them awakening.
Should an all-out battle ensue between the uchiha brothers, it would be awesome.
What intrigues me more is how much Orochimaru actually knows and had planned out in case certain scenarios happen. How come Madara got a Hashirama boob? I don't think Orochimaru even planted Hashirama (pun?) on Madara's corpse so how the hell did that happen? As per Kabuto it was the same thing Danzo did for himself, but who did it for a long dead Madara? Edo Tensei is just that broken?
It's actually amazing that Orochimaru influences the direction of the plot long after he has died. Now I'm wondering what the stupid "war-changing" scroll Suigetsu has is.
