What Hashirama summoned (Statue with a lots of hands) did he use that to attack or that was just a shield ??
I am not big of fan of Orochimaru but even the idea of him taking Hashirama's technique seems lame ... god I wish Kishi had stopped doing this he is ruining every single character ... no character is original anymore ... Sage modes, rasengans, this thousand hands technique, rashomou ... kishis had gone dry so he is stealing other characters jutsus and is implementing them to Hashirama and thus making every other characters pretty much knockoffs
Still, it's a shonen. There's going to be chapters dedicated to fights I guess. It should look amazing when the anime catches up.
So Hashirama used the sage mode? Nice,though I wasn't sure of it being a sage mode,in the first place. Yet,we may manage to see him training in the Shikkotsu forest,to achieve that very sage mode...
Also... don't be surprised if we see Sasuke want a heart to heart with Madara.
just my thoughts when i saw shodai's summoning of the thousand hand buddha. it connected to netero.
That thing is a Mokuton jutsu, Sennin mode can be seen by those markings in the face.
The base powers seems to be the same, although slightly different:
-The frog one seems more battle oriented
-The snake one seems more sensing oriented
-Maybe the slug one, considering slugs ( apparent ) healing powers and Hashirama's own would allow Hashi a giant stamina and regeneration boost
I would like to see what would hashirama think about QB being good now.
So a swords/weapons fight vs. QB changes:
I'm pretty sure the only reason we're seeing this is because Kishi went overboard with Madara's power. I'm missing the old simple times when you could fight using taijutsu and be happy....and now...QB with sussano armor and this Budda thig.
And all of a sudden the Sage Mode shown by Naruto, and even the one shown by Kabuto look.. pretty lame
It looks like my guess (Hashirama's Mokuton > Madara's Mokuton) was a massive understatement of the difference between.
