And I do not think it would be in Hashirama's nature to deny future generations the truth - his little brother died in that war, among hundreds if not thousands of other children; hiding or replacing the truth would be trivializing the time-period. If anyone, I think the second hokage probably neglected the role of historian.
That could be a mutual decision, I'm not sure. History classes in Konoha would probably include what has happened after the village was established and not anything from a prior time. As I said, it's a debatable policy.
I know someone had to mention it if not i will i think kishi could be showing his brother some love because itama has the same hair style as kishi's twin brother manga main character from 666 satan although the color's are on opposites sides.
I don't know if this has been brought up by anyone yet but I knew I recognized those faces/hairstyles from somewhere:
Kishi doesn't forget!
Anyway I love history so these past few chapters have been a treat for me.
History did change with the concept of "The King", something touched on deeply with Asuma's death and Shikamaru and Naruto's growth. Where they were once cannon fodder,young ninja now, like RK said above when using Kakashi's generation as an example are held back in some situations.
Saying that, when needed, the children fight, and they do indeed die. Nawaki is an example of this and Itachi was an example of a very young shinobi who knew war first hand. It's ironic, that Kakashi at 5 years old was able to be put in a warzone, but the generation ahead of him weren't allowed to fight the Kyuubi.
In any event, at 12 years old some of Konoha ninja became genin, making them ninja who could go into combat and die. That fact alone shows that there wasn't nearly as much progress as Hashirama would have hoped from when he was a child till 100 years later. The only difference is, war wasn't as common, and thus children didn't have to fight as often.

What could have happened to made madara this way, he wanted peace and it's to be more than izuna dying and the uchihas betrayed him...
I hope kishi show a female uchiha or senju, i mean if little kids when to the battlefield, i dont see why don't send the moms/sisters/daughters..
Does Kishimoto watch boxing? I want to catch him watching a fight so I can shut it off at it's climax to tell him a story and see how he likes it. That juubi fight is not as exciting as it once was because it keeps getting cut off!.
More like further proof that the Uchiha are pathetic emos that can't win a fight without resorting to stealing people's DNA, experimentation on themselves, or hiring other clans to help them fight, amirite!?Originally Posted by M3J
Just kidding. I just expected someone to say this by now. I'm pleasantly surprised no one has attempted it. Whats-his-face must be banned again.
On topic though: a lot of people were questioning Madara's statement about how he "had", 4 brothers, and that if they all died while he's young, then how could Izuna be around to awaken MS later. Has anyone considered his parents giving birth to another child later? Madara could've been the youngest of 5 until Izuna was born, and then after the death of his parents or something, he looked after him on his own.

P.S i hope kishi show us an adult senju fighting techniques and see if they were as strong as hashirama...
I don't think Izuna was born after Madara stated he had four brothers, since their age is too close in the flashbacks.
In that case he just meant "I had four brothers... until one (or two, or 3) died."
Either one makes sense. I'd still like to see them though. I wanna see Izuna's MS jutsu too, but this could be asking for too much.
i wanna see what madara's dad looks like :P
Despite appearances, we never know the actual age gap between Madara and his little brother. so, it can't be said that their ages are too close because we don't know them.

Hashirama can't be the go-to guy for Senju when he was just a kid and from the looks of it, didn't participate in every battle. Either way, if Uchiha were really as overpowered as people whine about, then they wouldn't have needed to team up. Hell, Senju would have been killed of before Hashirama was ever born.
they'd have to be close enough, considering the appearance.
