I'm not sure myself i could've missed something somewhere which is why i'm posting, but Since orochimaru cut open the stomach of the Reaper and it gave him back his arms that were sealed inside the 3rd hokage via reaper death seal shouldn't it have also released the other half of the kyuubi that was sealed in minato via reaper death seal?
Don't worry, you aren't alone.
I always found it strange that Minato could so easily use Kurama's chakra when Naruto had to overcome his hatred first and then fight Kurama all along. Somehow it would make sense if Minato's half of the Kyuubi was just nothing but chakra but last chapter's cliffhanger destroyed that option.
I think this is just Kishi again fucking any logic he established in his manga.
i thought it would be something like minato could use it because naruto already tamed the kyuubi and if that kyuubi pretty much just let minato use it since naruto had the kyuubi on his side by then. but that wouldnt make sense if this kyuubi ends up being evil but the way he talks he might not be.
I just checked the chapter and Guess you are right, but it looked like he chose to release those first cause they were the first thing to come out, either that happened because they were related to the one who opened the belly of death God or because he chose them to come out first.
On another node In death God belly things that are sealed, they are being the separate entities fighting each other for the eternity , so yah Kyuubi's chakra shouldn't be available to minato.
Only justifiable theory can be that Minato regained the possession of that Chakra as soon as he came out

Just realised they are actually Edo Tenseid not freed unlike the arms, so when Minato died he had this chakra sealed in him so he was ressuracted that way
Yea i'm on the same boat as you. I remember seeing somewhere that the Yin Yang chakra of Kurama were sealed. So it made sense that there were two of them but it was just proved last chapter. But it's still a mystery why Minato has it tamed. Maybe this one was friendlier.
Which begs the question; did he create the contract on the fly, or, did he had it planned for a while?
One of two things happened, either Minato created the contract that ultimately gives his son access to the Fox's chakra due to the threat of "Madara", thereby he created the contract and its details on the fly
Minato had an idea how to create such a contract, but realized only the sealing techniques of the death god could necessitate the many nuances that would give the user access to the fox's chakra; and decided against it since if he were to use this technique he'd die and be sealed in the death god.
maybe option three;
and/or; He, developed the technique knowing someday, his wife would need to pass on the Fox to some one else, and therefore he decided he'd leave a lasting legacy, and a weapon that would forever protect the village. Maybe, he intentioned to train Naruto once he was old enough to use the Fox's Chakra, and then sacrifice himself to Seal the Fox inside his son.
But we all know why Sarutobi is missing and Minato lost his arm, to ensure no reaper death seal of course, probably, the only thing Obito has no counter for.

Could the seal Minato used on the Kyuubi incorporate some Kage Bunshin elements? That is the only jutsu where a user can split himself including his consciousness and be a complete entity in his own right with half the chakra of course. Or failing that,
This is the same justsu that Minato used to place both his and Naruto's mom chakra and consciousness within Naruto. If he could split his chakra that way, why is it impossible that he could do the same for the Kyuubi....I don't know... but it doesn't seem that farfetched
