1: There's Kurama, who hasn't made an appearance in several chapters.
2: There's Bee who's been downplayed significantly.
3: There's Minato
4: There's the Kage
5: There's even Shikamaru/Nara clan's with shadow bind
6: There's Sakura and her new sense of "girl powah"
7: Maybe even Kakashi somehow getting out and losing his sight trying to do something with his kamui.
8: There's the potential of it being a genjutsu by Sasuke or Jubito...
9: There's even Obito himself fighting whatever influence he's under now.
10: Isn't Juugo, who has a special kind of jyuubi like chakra of his own or something on the battle-field?
Some far fetched, some not so much... but regardless, it's 100% believeable that they aren't on the ropes... if for no other reason than 'Main characters no jutsu'.
ok the guy has the best super duper sharp blades that can be used as deff and offence but what is he doing ? hes using his hands to grab the enemies ...
its like having a gatling gun and using it like a club or stick ...
Hyper-convenient in terms of plot, not the hoops individual characters have to jump through for the rinnegan/control of the Gedo. Why develop a complex narrative woven around the concept of "breaking the cycle of hatred" if the actual actual solution to the current era's woes is to just kill the problem. That's an awfully convenient 'solution'.
And I still say that would be stupid for the same reason you're saying it's iron-clad fact. The juubi should work the same way the bijuu do, regardless of a unifying shell.Quote:
Yes, it's an authentic solution. No we don't know how it worked out because it never happened. There was never a collective plan to tame the beasts in a neutral environment. They've always been used for war.Quote:
Sure, if your version of peace is just below Nagato's. "Some semblance" of incredibly short-sighted peace. Okay.Quote:
That explanation was anything but effective. Nagato had Senju and Uchiha DNA, unless DNA isn't contained in eyeballs in your world. Not only that, but he had Madara's true rinnegan. You can't get much more Sagely than that.Quote:

Between Itachi's "genius", Koto, Totsuka, Izanagi and Izanami, Shisui and Itachi could have saved the world several times over in several different ways.
Gene-splicing for the sake of ability-stealing should have stayed a purely Oro thing, never to be copied over and over and over again to every major villain.
It needs to be understood the tailed beasts didn't exist until the Sage created them. He created them out of the chakra of the Juubi. Not out of it's body, but out of it's chakra.
The tailed beasts are pure energy, the Juubi is not. Energy cannot be destroyed or killed, but a living being can. The Juubi is a living being. It may have been stripped of it's energy but it lay dormant in the Moon for years, and was very much alive once the Biju began being sealed back into it.
The idea that it can be killed is a very reasonable one and makes a lot of sense. Why the Sage didn't kill it remains to be seen, but seeing as how he was a pacifist that could be the reason.
juubio has his 2 sphere things "free" and ready to shoot through sasukes and narutos head.
he cant defend himself with them that way so hopefully we get a 1-2 of minato pulling them out and then putting a rasnengan into juugbitos back
The juubi isn't a normal living being, and I doubt it follows the same rules of life and death that mortal beings do. It would be pretty anti-climactic for the progenitor of everything that is to be more killable than the beings that composed it. The Sage "created them from its chakra"- that's all we know. We don't know if creating them out of its chakra somehow imbued them with reincarnating immortality, or if that was a trait of the juubi all along. "Bijuu are pure chakra and chakra is energy and energy can't be killed so that's the explanation"... I'm just surfin' on Occam's Razor yo.
Now, 'destroying the Gedo Mazou to prevent the unification of the beasts' is a more solid argument, but judging from the Sage's foreshadowing in Kurama's flashback, they're all definitely going to become one again. It's just speculation, but I don't feel like the juubi is going to be re-split after Gyuuki and Kurama are inevitably assimilated. I bet the juubi will suddenly become a lot more sapient with those parts.

You seem to forget the chakra arms....Dociman
I think Minato will somehow save them and kick Obitos butt a bit. Wouldnt be suprised if Minato turns out to be almost equal on powers as Hashirama, because you never know what Kishimoto is thinking.
So does Obito still have his sharingan ability? He could have escaped both Tobirama and Sarutobi's attacks with his intangibility. But then again, if he actually travels to his own dimension Kakashi would be beyond screwed.
Chapter 640 is out on Mangapanda.
amazing chapter gave me a boner/.
