Remember, Kyuubi can see what's happening to his Jinchuuriki while he's inside them, so he was no stranger to how Konoha felt about him. The instant he was free he could have fled. Instead he went for revenge: killing anyone in his path.
The analogy was to compare him to Sasuke, someone else who's circumstances of his childhood turned him into a hateful monster. You can't excuse one and not the other.
what have I been telling you during these weeks??? that we would see the Sage in a flashback where the 9 bijus are together,because that would be our only hope to see him,although I'm pretty sure we will see him again. furthermore,I ensure you that we would know all of their names before the end of the battle.
Oh, and I share your doubt about the juubi.
The other thing I can't get past is that it was TOBI that explained the story of the two brothers.
This has to be important because he's a known liar. He could be leaving something absolutely vital out. Like... what if the sage had 3 sons as a wild example? We have 'might', and we have 'love'. But what about 'virtue' as well? Also... Tobi stated that the sage chose a successor, and that successor was the younger one which fueld a continuous 'cycle of hate' and rivalry. But he didn't seem to entrust either one of them as host of the ten tails for some reason (maybe chakra, maybe trust, maybe burdoning them, etc.) Tobi left something out, something important in his quest to manipulate Naruto & Sasuke. I too agree that there is something else about the jyuubi.

Rikudou probably wanted for Bijuus to live in peace and co-exist with humans and share a bond with them, just like Naruto wants. Up until now, we thought that he purposely separated Juubi into 9 smaller parts to persevere at least a little bit of peace. Even though the Bijuus were portrayed as being that would never accept a human or be in interaction with them as we're seeing now, it was a natural cause of events. Beings are in need for affection. Not a single alive thing can be alone and be satisfied with it because it is natural to share everything that can be shared between 2 or more beings. I'd say it's not surprising that every Bijuu was on good terms with their Jin if you look at all the shit that's been done by Tobi. I like the way things turned out and would like to see Tobi rot in Infinite Tsukuyomi all by himself.
If the Sage of the Six Paths ended up looking like Naruto or Minato, I think I'd actually be pissed.
It wouldn't fall in line with the elder son vs. younger son thing all to me. We saw the images of the elder son and the younger son, both with black hair and if the elder son's eyes could be deactivated they'd probably be black like the younger son's eyes. Same with Madara and Hashirama the most powerful ninja of their clans, they looked different and yet had their similarities in appearance which could make us believe down the line their respective clans had a common ancestor.
If the Sage of the Six Path ends up having blonde hair and blue eyes it would be really weird. It probably will end up the way I don't want it to just for fan service reasons, but I wouldn't be happy with it.
Great, Chapter... Kyuubi kinda cute ->young one xD but what ever, its goo to know and see that they weren't bad guys at the beginning. i really look forward for learning the true story
yeah,the Sage really looked like naruto in his biju mode. from jiraiya's flashback we thought he had black hair,but it is yellow,and,more important,he had got almost the same cloak of naruto and the same horns! but why is naruto the only jin who,in biju-mode,looks like him??
Last reminder :
Naruto's awards polls will be soon closed. If you didn't vote now, then I suggest you to do it very soon.
guys,did you notice that mangareader is clearer in this page http://www.mangareader.net/naruto/572/6 ? here yagura says just that he was very strong,instead of respected (I doubt he was really respected...). Also,from mangastream version it seems that he hasn't ever kissed a girl and that he wanted to know about it. I prefer mangareader's page since it should be the right one
One day, you will all become one...
With different names and different forms than you exist now...
And unlike when you where within me, you will be led down the right path...
When time comes... for you to know what the true power is...
Foresight: Naruto will have 9 kids... Ill leave their names to you...
I feel like "the right path" and "Sage of Six Paths" is somehow connected...
P.S. True power and right path are codenames for "LOVE"!
And I agree about the bijuu. At some point they were looked at as being sources of power and weapons, even if that wasn't the original intention by the sage. And the thing about it that's interesting to me is that the Uchiha aren't the only ones guilty of it - so are the senju since it was said at some point that Hashirama had a role in the distribution for peace.
Minato also somewhat rendered them as objects/weapons when he spoke of the importance of the 'balance of power' when Kushina was hesitant to have Naruto be the kyuubi's host. No regards to the actual kyuubi, or Kurama. Meanwhile Madara insulted him, going completely against what the Sage had told him.
