Good chapter, it made more senses why madara turned like that everything to protect his brother but madara gave up fast..
This chapter just feels too weird based on what we know from before. Madara gave up too easily, and the dialogue just seemed too cheesy. Why are Uchiha and Madara established as weaker, but in the past are said to be Senju and Hashiraima's equal? Not to mention, Tobi as Madara said he was blind when he was given his brothers' eyes. A lot smells like bullshit here, and it feels like Kishi's wanking the Senju to make the fans feel better, since a lot of 'em hate Uchiha for some reason.
Jeez. o\ Will we see Edo TEnsei next chapter?
this is the truth, remember all Tobi can do is lying
so this is how Hashiraima die .to gain madara's trust he suicide because he cant kill his brother .
till now there is no village so if he die before that then its new (change) history
I guess this chapter (kind of) helps explain how Madara and Hashirama fought so many times without killing each other...
Combination of Madara running away, and Hashirama sparing his life!
Perhaps Hashirama may have spared Madara after all - and told everyone he had killed him, knowing full well that he would not be in a condition to do anything again. I wonder if he didn't give Madara a piece of him, knowing that Madara could use it to keep him alive (by umbilically attaching him to a clone of the plant thing?).
I guess that the Rinnegan would have been unexpected for Hashirama...
(pity he didn't expect a mokuton-clone-rinnegan-infused-Rin'less-sociopath to turn up)...
Also, nice that this set of flashbacks is almost over.
I'd imagine one more to tie up this 'cliffhanger', one (or two) more for the peaceful village explanation (and why not 100% peaceful - thus 2nd war preparations?), and finally one more for the Madara/Hashirama fight end (VOTE)...
Then onto Tobirama's flashbacks! Hot damn I am waiting to see what that racist bigot has to say!
I do not like Tobirama because he is racist and bigoted - but rather because he is a completely different character from the usual 'good guy' mold.
Also, I also wish that the Uchiha were not dismissed quite so quickly. Perhaps they will get a good showing in Tobirama's flashbacks?
Perhaps some of the old:
- "The 2nd ninja war started... Probably the Uchiha's fault"
- "Hashirama died in mysterious circumstances... maybe from heartache from losing Madara? Obviously, as Madara is a Uchiha, this is the Uchiha's fault"
- "The weather has been truly terrible today, hmm, I bet the Uchiha have something to do with it..."

but this contradicted the whole madara and hashirama being equal because, in the flashback had showed that hashirama was a step a head of madara all the time even madara being defeat and ready to be kill by the senjus(tobirama) but hashirama stopped him so i don't know where the equal power came from because so far everything had go to hashirama side to had the upper hand in their battles..
Well Madara is to blame for everything ... his brother is dead because of him ... very nice
Which makes me think, I wonder if one of the Senju (perhaps Hashirama?!?) could have healed Izuna from Tobirama's sword strike? That would make Izuna not only responsible for continued fighting, but also for the end of his own life, Madara's discomfort/pain, and everything following...
also, had Hashirama thought like Madara/izuna, the Uchiha would probably have been wiped out aaaaaaaages ago...

This chapter was on the softer side, not much going on. I thought maybe we'd get to see Izuna dying dramatically, and Madara taking his eyes while swearing revenge etc... Instead we got Izuna dying off-panel and Madara showing up all of a sudden with EMS.
No more word on their parents either, a simple 'my father died 4 years later' or something would've been ok
But, Tobirama's Time- and Space-jutsu was interesting to see. First time we got to see his fabled S&T.
Also the way Hashirama refused to kill Madara, so much that he spiked his chakra (I think?) that Tobirama got scared was cool.

why is chapter called aiko? who is Aiko?
Marada fear for his brother dying from that knife blind him and then he stop beliving in his dream with hashirama and madara took his father and brother ideas while they kept fighting hashirama still believe in peace and truce while madara let himself believe that protecting his brother and clan was the best and there isn't real peace and truce and it is just a child dreams but madara in his heart still believe in that dream but izuna's dying killed that light in madara's heart and madara felt to hate and this so call darkness,,
So like, Madara needed to see with his own eyes someone attacking his brother in order to completely turn the page with Hashirama? Sucks. Sparing his life over and over and over again, I think I'm getting to understand this never-ending hatred of his, the guy was practically at Hashirama's mercy every time they fought. And that last requirement for them to gain his trust, just proves he's a fucking psycho. I hope Sasuke won't be exactly the same.
