Could it be that, actually, Orochimaru lied to Danzou, saying that Kabuto was very close to be a danger for Konoha while it wasn't the case yet ? Good opportunity for him.
Can anyone explain this to me?
well , this isn't only Kabuto's flash back , this is Orochimaru's flashback as well ....
IMO , we would see Orochimaru again ... look like Kishi doesn't want finish this manga easily .

Chapter is also out on Mangastream
Actually, Orochimaru did say it was decided from the beginning as well. Long before Kabuto would be considered "dangerous".

That picture of Kabuto synthetysing blood from Oro's remainings was just stupid Lets put it all into one big funnel and squeeze Oro juice!!!
I would've preferred if the means by which Kabuto obtained Orochimaru's abilities weren't so simple. I mean he ground out the blood from Oro's remains. Seriously? I don't think any part of this manga has ever held so little interest for me. And it seems likely that the flashbacks are going to continue into the next chapter. I'm hopeful that it focuses on Kabuto's attainment of sage abilities, that story would be far more interesting than anything we've seen from the flashbacks so far.
Looking at the spoiler, I believed this chapter to be boring, instead it was surprisingly truthful and highly enjoyable.
Still, looking at the Sasuke scan ( together with all the experiments of Orochimaru ) makes me wonder if Kabuto has Sasuke's blood as well, or if he was showed only because he was the reason of Oro's demise.
Other than that, Oro oozes charisma from every pore, damn!
And killing Kabuto off would be a mistake, since he has even more potential:
say he pulls a Madara and manages to take Sasuke's Sharingan ( maybe through cells or whatever ), he would grant Oro's wish and become an even stronger foe. Despite Sharingan and Rin'negans growing like grass, I really would like, for Kabuto, to go on.
Still I can actually see Izanami stopping at least Edo Tensei, a new forbidden jutsu from a Sharingan can't be utterly ineffective, considering also how confident Itachi was.
I wonder if Kabuto actually added body parts to himself along with using blood. I'm sure there was more to it than him just getting blood from his experiments. He most likely added stuff that made it somewhat stable and helped to cause a transformation.
Another unteresting part of all that flashbacks highlited in new chapter is Kabuto is to find himself. itachi is going to decide his destiny... Or will he use it in Sasuke? Kabuto in flashback looks like someone with undecided one... Witll it be like this until the end?
what an awesome chapter. kishi is really from another planet. basically he walked us through kabuto's past thus justifying his character and why he does what he does. plus theses flashbacks give more depth to the manga making more plausible and understandable.
