Hmmm...doesn't explain adult Obito fighting Minato. Time/space jutsu...isn't a valid explanation Kishi.
^Well he wasn't a adult then we just think that because he was tall.
Thank you Naruto for the beat your ass now ask you questions later moment, nice to see he has he head in the right place in this situation which I'm not shocked at but it's little things like that where you can see Naruto is growing up.
Ok so I totally called it on this whole thing being because of Rin. I'm sorry everyone. I will start predicting more naked ladies to bring the quality up.
Oh, and Sasuke will come and it will 2v2. Gai and Kakashi are taken out. Probably held prisoner to watch the fight in another dimension Yu Yu Hakusho style.
so this was all because of..."Hurr Durr, you let Rin DIE DUUUUR"....
Now the question is how does Madara fit into this whole equation? Now we have to get the story of not only how Obito survived* and how did madara survive after his fight with the 1st. I think the key to their survival may have something to do with what Orochi and Sasuke are going to explore. Maybe some kind of Uchiha inter-dimensional promise land secret hiding place to go when they die?
Funny, really. A lot of Naruto fanfiction has speculated about the relationship between Kakashi, Obito and Rin due to Kishimoto never even hinting up until now what had happened to Rin (other than Kakashi's comment to Sasuke in part 1 that "all my precious people are dead" which could have been interpreted any number of ways). The Peggy Sue fanfic 'Time and Again', for example, kept Rin alive as an important character and made Obito's death both her motivation for turning evil and Kakahi's albatross that prevents him from killing her even after she does, no matter how he denies it. At least now we have some final confirmation: Rin died, Obito blames Kakashi.
Madara's appearance surprised me though. It's been a while since we saw last saw him fighting the Kages and I don't reread chapters unless I have a REALLY good reason to, but weren't they still going at him? Does that mean he eventually beat them offscreen, are they right behind him, or did they decide they'd had enough and went for a drink? Now we finally know who the man in the mask is, how will Obito treat him? He apparently knows him by name (despite him having been a fairly minor member of the family while alive) so they must have met in person at least once even before Kabuto revived him (I doubt Kabuto brought him out of the box to chat after using him to threaten Obito).
I do have to say, it was fairly lazy of Kishimoto to just reuse the exact same panels from the Kakashi Gaiden arc for the flashback rather than drawing anything new. Still, I'm looking forward to hearing Obito's story, it ought to be good. Or at least amusingly retarded in its implausibility.
hopefully we will get to see what happen to rin soon. that and orochi's past..
[sips coffee] This only gets better and better. I wonder if Madara killed all of the Kages or just spared them so they could live in shame. I'm betting on the latter.
