Yes, Hinata is thinking about Naruto's big, strong
hand and holding it tightly
No way, Sakura will come in.... soon! A-and slap Hinata off him!
Those two are dull, blonexblonde (NarutoxIno) ftw!
We all know the only one Naruto cares to be paired with is Sasuke
Naruto will die, pairingless.
Why? We all know Naruto will get all the bitches in the end
It doesn't make any sense at all.
Not unless suigetsu is another genius of his clan, a forbidden jutsu maniac and knows those kind of stuff.
And why would it be unthinkable that Oro kept some secrets even from Kabuto? Kabuto was Orochimarus most trusted and valued pawn, but a pawn nonetheless. Oro wanted to become the ultimate being, having Kabuto as his equal was never his intention.
Second, implementing the scroll does not mean he will fight in the war. A third power can decide to rule the after Shinobi war - that is if they really have the power to beat the SA.
Third, unless Kabuto was lying, everything Orochimaru know was known to Kabuto. This include the content of the scroll, and this is the reason Kabuto wanted Sasuke's body in my opinion. The max power Kabuto hinted was Rikudo's power because this was what he hinted when he said that he was the closest to Rikudo. Unfortunately, he ignored completely what was going between Naruto and the Biju. This ignorance make everything Suigetsu said a debatable claim.
I assume anyone knows about the legend of the Rikudo Sennin and the Rinnengan.
Also, Tobi dies one way or another since he'd have to revive Madara, if Rinne TEnsei does require his life.
Kabuto was 99.9 percent of this wars firepower, lmao. Irrelevant? The war would be OVER by now if it weren't for Kabuto. You do know that irrelevent means "of no consequence", correct? No one cares when he became the most lethal threat in this war, we just acknowledge that he was indeed a threat. To claim that Sasuke can't pull the same magic act is... what do you even gain from saying something like that?Originally Posted by so6pww
By following the path/potential paths Kishi laid out for us to begin with. Sasuke is affiliated with one of the main instigators of this war. In Obito's eyes he is a subordinate. Subordinates do what their superiors ask them to. Obito asks Sasuke to aid them. He does. That's one way he's apart of the war.Quote:
Or Sasuke gains a new sense of resolve to protect Konoha in his brother's name, then he makes his way to the battlefield and aids the Alliance, powered up or not. The relevence is in the foreshadowing that anyone who's been reading the manga picked up on (even though the forshadowing simply foreshadows "change", not "what change will take place").
1: recieving a scroll that can "turn the war around".
2: change in character (Sasuke is no longer doting on revenge and could very well choose to go after
3: implications in the title that Sasuke (or rather, Sasuke, Taka, and Orochimaru) are "The 3rd Power".
The only way that Sasuke being relevant to this war could be considered "unrealistic" or "irrelevant" is if his actions didn't effect anyone in the war at all. Which it does. For one he initially wanted to murder the ninja who's currently carrying the entire alliance. Secondly he may also have changed his mind about vengeance altogether.
If he arrives and he has changed, having given up his hatred after talking to "the one who knows everything", then this will be a major blow to Obito's "The world is shit and you should give up believing in love" mentality. He will question how someone as hate-filled as Sasuke could turn back while he couldn't, and he would finally begin to question his choices. This might not happen, but it's yet another example of how Sasuke appearing on the battlefield not only promotes interesting writing, but stays right in line with the path Kishimoto has been following.Quote:
You don't have to be a genius to comprehend overwhelming power, or a secret that can change the world. Even if it's not a blatantly simple powerup the way Suigetsu claims: it's something big.Quote:
Before Sasuke noticed Itachi was around he was headed somewhere else. Infact...Quote:
http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/574/14 He was headed to where Naruto is to kill him. Infront of the alliance. The war WAS a must for him because at that point, it was the only way to kill Naruto. As of now, it's still a must for him because regardless of whether he's changed his mind and wants to defeat Madara (fullfilling his brother's wish in the process) or his hatred hasn't subsided and he still wants to fight Naruto... it will likely not happen after the war because the manga is supposed to be coming to a close.
With the war finished and Sasuke wanting to destroy Konoha, he would need power comperable to current Madara. And that's not possible because there's only one Juubi.
Sasuke meeting Itachi to finish his own storyline doesn't change that it was during that storyline, that a major event in this war happen. Sasuke helping Itachi against Kabuto for his own reasons doesn't change that he help Itachi end Edo Tensei, allowing the war to shift into the final stages. And as mentioned before, you don't have any idea where Sasuke's meeting with the one who knows everything will lead. You can't claim in the slightest that it'll lead away from the war, especially when such a large part of this war has involved events from the past. Nor would Sasuke be used by anyone, not in a way that he wouldn't benefit from. In every single partnership, Sasuke has always managed to benefit more then those who were supposedly using him. Sasuke doesn't require anyone else to trust beyond himself. And even if it hadn't been established that Orochimaru is still as weak as he was when he was originally beaten, Sasuke's new abilities would clearly allow him to defend himself with minor trouble. Given that Naruto can barely help himself, the idea that he could help Sasuke in any way is pretty silly.

Besides, even if it was the reason Rin couldn't be revived, I'm more than sure Nagato would give away his own life to revive Yahiko, since his death technically was a result of his mistake, holding onto that kunai.
That's an interesting point that caught my attention, as well. I guess Obito waits to get talk no jutsued back into be a hero, or he would have already cast Rinne Tensei.
I think Tobi's a lot like Nagato, or I think that now ever since Madara said Tobi was genuinely interested in Naruto's answer as Nagato was.
Not sure if it'll be like that.
Either way, Tobi's will be worse because he really has nothing or no good reason for going evil. Nagato at least suffered losses and really did want peace, while Tobi just wants to control people for one reason, and only because he lost the love of his life.
Gawd, I'm embarrassed by the stupid reason for Tobi turning evil. <_< So embarrassin to type that.
Well, I remember naruto when he steal the forbidden scroll back in part 1. So maybe orochimaru's scroll has a title, a summary and how that forbidden jutsu works. maybe that's the reason why suigetsu knows what kind of scroll he found at that lab. He was shocked just by reading the title and the summary. Yea, my bad.
Kabuto is no doubt a loyal subject of orochimaru. And even if oro would kept secret/s from kabuto, does the scroll is more valuable than the secret of madara's power/rinnegan and the snake sage power? Why would oro let kabuto learned the truth about sasuke's body that could awaken a rinnegan if they inserted hashirama's DNA?
If oro would kept a secrets from kabuto, it should be the rinnegan and hashirama's DNA ''stuff''. After all, that two would make orochimaru to ultimate being.
It died once again when Obito replied to Kakashi: "because you let Rin die".
It can't be helped, though, we have to move on..

It looks like a proper essay scheme, maybe Orochimaru was good with the literature in Academy
Has anyone considered Jiraya's scroll??
In which he sealed a part of ametrasu... where is that scroll???
Narutoverse has too many scrolls floating around with orochimaru running around saying : Gotta catch them all
With Sasuke entering battle we have three fronts now:
1. Madara/Obit : Not sure whether IT is really an option.. it must be something to keep obito on madara's side...
2. SA- We come in Peace
3. SAsuke/ Orochimaru- their intentions needs to be revealed.. Sasuke's motives have changed throughout the manga. Initally he wanted revenge by killing Itachi, then he wanted to kill the entire konoha, then he wanted to show DESPAIR to Naruto, and now for the first time he has used some sense to actually knw what is happening...
I remember reading a Kishi interview where it is stated that the final battle is Naruto V. Sasuke
So Sasuke will be the final villian and he needs a big powerup in some form- He cannot possibly, in current form fight against naruto.....
Sasuke decides to help SA to stop obito/ madara just because they manipulated him and in actuality it was their doing that Uchiha got massacred
Then he ultimate battle between naruto (senju) and sasuke (uchiha) will happen....
As regards the jyubi..he will be in control of naruto ( the names did give him some power)......
we are gonna see a lot of talk no jutsu thats for sure
