Look how Kabuto summoned that bodyguard in the link I posted. He does not get there in a coffin. He is put in a magic circle and that ash climbs on him and what not and then the dude is clearly showed. So how did Orochimaru did that with Minato? Kabuto clearly showed there how it is done.
The edo tensei sucks thread.
Edo tensei sucks, because Nagato is revived with Rinnegan. It wasn't part of his actual being, it was just an object placed into his eye socket. If I die with a dildo up my ass and someone edotensei's me, will the dildo be up my ass?
Because the third Raikage has a scar. His REAL body had the scar. But that real body died from another injury. Both are injuries. If one injury is taken with you in edo tensei, why not the other one? What does edo tensei care which injuries you get to keep? Why not bring his soul back in a lethally injured half dead corpse that keeps reforming?
Because you can move your mouth but not your arms and legs. What's the fundamental difference? You move your mouth with muscles, you move your arm with muscles.
Are you going to complain that they shouldn't be wearing clothes too? Since clothes aren't a part of their "actual being".
Nagato was revived with the Rinnegan. Madara was revived with Hashirama's cells, Rinnegan and EMS. Is that part of his genetic make-up? No. Hiruzen was revived as an old man whereas Madara was revived in his prime. Everybody was revived in their respective traditional outfi. Does any of this really matter though? No.
Let's be realistic here. This is a piece of fiction. It's not a scientific essay based on rigorous testing. You're bound to find some inconsistencies and some retcons. Finding flaws is easy and we all know they exist. That doesn't stop you from enjoying it, so just kick back and relax

Well, about Madara. He was experimented on after being edo tensei'd, so I don't really mind. I don't think Nagato was turned into a cripple by Kabuto on purpose, so yeah that's stupid. He should have been born with regular eyes too. I mean does Kakashi have his Sharingan when he's edo tensei'd after having his Sharingan stolen by someone else?
And what about these bodies reforming? Let's say you revive Madara without his personality. Just make him lie down. I bet we can keep pulling his eyes out, while watching them regrow 100 times in a row. Make a whole army of Rinneganners.
maybe kabuto hadn't enough time to revive him in his pre-cripple state, may he needed special DNA from a specific time period or something like that.
Well, if you're gonna argue about those little things, might as well do it for the technique's existence in general. I like seeing the Kage back but let's be real, this technique crosses the boundaries even in the fantasy world. Without it, Madara wouldn't be here and Obito would've already been defeated.
Most laws of physics are broken in this manga anyways. If you're looking for things to be consistent, or make sense all the time, you're gonna have a bad time.
This is just an average dude telling you a story that he's making up to entertain people. Either listen to it, or don't.
