btw,the fact oro is the man who knows everything isn't a new. we already knew that. after his death,it came out that he studied izanagi on danzo,he read the uchiha stone,he experimented on hashirama's cells to stop their power and even knew about tobi's army and what he(or madara) was doing.yet,all of these infos arrived after his disappearance in vol.43
Madara is being arrogant. He can use Susano'O now, but doesn't want to. And he is a little disgusted with everyone - including himself now - that the battle is still going on and that he was interrupted. It's the oddest of stalemates, seemingly, so Kishimoto cna move in another direction while keeping some Kage alive. Mission accomplished... Madara's a badass. So whoever takes him down will also have to be that much of a badass.
Tobi has his hands full but then again he was on borrowed time the moment Kabuto summoned the 'real' Madara.
Sauske sits and ponders, “What is a clan/village/shinobi”… Looks like Itachi’s farewell has indeed put the brakes on his murderous intent –at least for the moment. I thought he was going to be all, "I'm...GOING TO HATE THE VILLAGE EVEN MORE NOW! OOOAAAAAHHH...!" But it seems he clearly redirecting his energy - at least temporarily - towards an information search which will lead him to a proper ‘final confrontation’ with Orochimaru, and probably also a confrontation with ET Madara before he finally moves on to Naruto.
And – oh – yay – it’s the Boobsy twins again. And they just punched another hole in a wall to warp reality.
Oop – and Tobi finally is playing his last card by tossing the chunks into Gedo Mazo. Here comes the Jubi (at least temporarily). I bet that KillerBee will have to sacrifice himself to keep Naruto alive, but that KB will manage to hold off the Jubi and allow the others to survive – leaving Tobi with 8 of the Bijju. Or – possibly – since Naruto now has chunks of the other Bijju chakras – maybe Naruto will become and “Anti-Jubi” by powering up using all the different chakras like the Gedo Mazo is doing.
ET Madara is acting funny. I really don’t buy his story that he just doesn’t want to summon his big Susanoo again. I think he CAN’T do it, and that he’s now vulnerable somehow. Maybe breaking Edo Tensei has made him mortal again, or removed his Harashima powers, or done some other weird thing. Time will tell.
And as we all suspected – Orochimaru isn’t done yet. I wonder if he is the guy ‘who knows everything’ or if that is someone else. It is fairly obvious that Anko is going to be the conduit for his return, or at least involved in it somehow. But since most of Orochimaru’s chakra is sealed up in the gourd, I bet he won’t be able to do very much so his return may be more of an infodump than an actual fight.
This “you aren’t really dead as long as some of your chakra is floating around” theme has been hit on several times before. It has been implied that the chunks of Bijju chakra that latch on to people have the potential to become a fully conscious and independent copy of the Bijju itself. Minato and Kushina had chunks of their chakra sealed in Naruto and became temporarily ‘alive’ for a while. It is certainly possible that the chunk of Orochimaru’s chakra in Anko could somehow do the same thing for Orochimaru and create a fully functional copy of the original – at least temporarily. Could Izanagi or the Rinnegan somehow give that temporary form a permanent aspect of life like the Sage did for the Bijju? We shall see.
Madara had to survive ET so that Onoki's sacrifice wouldn't be pointless (how stupid would be for Onoki to kill himself with Edo Tensei being canceled 3 chapters later) Edo Tensei being canceled is the pre-requite before the kages can go suicidal.
Sasuke had to know 1) Tobi isn't Madara since Madara is a Tensei (although it doesn't matter. Sasuke won't meet Tobi again or he would seek him for answers about the "village and the clan" instead of Orochimaru
2) his brother didn't fix everything and the war is still going on. And he choses to not going to help. (which everyone interprets as : woah he is a good guy now)

doubt madara would be stopped by the kages i think this chapter hinted that he will meet sasuke and eventually tobi and naruto. the chapter was called the third power and the 3 uchihas were shown in the last page. each represents one of the powers i think everyone of them will converge in the same place with naruto
yeah,about madara and sasuke. jugo revelaed him about madara being still around. but neither sasuke nor itachi should have known that madara has been resurrected as a zombie,both of them should have believed tobi was madara.surely itachi didn't know about edo-madara: he made up his mind to end the ET himself in vol.58,whereas madara was summoned in vol.59. with kabuto they didn't talk about him and in fact itachi was so sure to have saved everyone,while madara is still there killing. I think sasuke should have commented a bit about edo-tobi,since he expected tobi to be madara.
what i think is going to happen....Sasuke will fight Madara or Tobi......Naruto will tell everyone that it was Itachi who helped him and Bee and how he was the one who stopped ET....everyone will rever him and sasuke as heros of the village.....sasuke beating Madara is his way of "purifying" the clan name....and then Naruto and Sasuke will have a battle for the tittle of Hokage
guys,i don't think him seeking oro is about tobi as much as it is to stop ETed madara...hence itachi thought that he stopped madara(that was the reason he went after kabuto).so sasuke not knowing ET and itachi failing...who else can stop madara or atleast know how.kabuto is now worthless...maybe as a shinobi to boot...no telling how he will turn out after this encounter.
but,itachi probably was only going on intincts to begin with and not having anyother way to go about the situation...not seeing ET before and all.
agreed my friend,sasuke will destroy the leaf nonetheless,but he won't allow itachi to fail,hence he will try to stop madara too,to end the ET forever!
Here we go again. In a circle if Oro is still alive then next thing you know they will be bringing Toad Senin A.K.A Jiraiya back. Although I hope Kabuto gets out of that Genjutsu so we can see more of him. Somehow I don't think this is the last of Kabuto.
