but,wouldn't it make sense...that sasuke would go down this road.i believe the explaination kabuto gave was not just for itachi/sasuke's benefit...i think it was directed at us(readers).to let us know that there is another way for sasuke to become powerful without hashirama's help(dna/cells).
naruto has kurama(probably access to the other bijuus)plus he learned SM...to become more like RS.
wouldn't it be logical(i know...not a good word as of late)that sasuke would need someting other than EMS(powerful dojutsu)...to become more like RS also.
i'm not saying it is for certain...but i really don't want sasuke to be another hashirama guinea pig.
hopefully,he is the true coming of the oldest son...instead of cheating like madara,danzou,kabuto,oro,obito,and so on and so on...
If Sasuke was to become any Sage it would be a Hawk Sage.....if one even exist. Sasuke evolved form a low level snake to a hawk the swores high in the skies
http://www.narutobase.net/manga/Naruto/344/13 Sasuke just needs his CS back along with his up coming power up and he will be beastly.
maybe oro will bring up the fact that sasuke has access to these additions(like jugo and karin).
there is definitely a reason why both oro and kabuto covets sasuke's body...not just for his dojutsu.they both wanted him long before he was gifted itachi's eyes,to get to EMS level.
why is his body so important...and why was naruto dismissed by oro/kabuto.you would think if oro truly wanted a powerful long lasting body...he would have targeted naruto...right(shrug).
As said before kishi has made it clear that it is coming down to a fight between the younger son, will of fire, body of the sage vs the older son,curse of hatred, eyes of sage....though if you ask me that destined battle is already off to a bad start because Sasuke is going to soon have the pinnacle of Eye power whereas Naruto is nowhere near having the pinnacle of body power.
oro's motivation was not to have the top-notch dojutsu...but the top-notch body(to host his soul...forever).
Orochimaru goal was to have a good enough host to handle the top notch eyes. When we all thought Orochimaru wanted the sharingan to learn all the jutsu in the world,well he really wanted the Rinnengan.... Its just obtain the same way as Rinnengan, through a Uchiha.
Orochimaru explained that he wanted immortality so he could master all Jutsus that exists:
he would need the body to train the eyes...hence oro definitely has no one that would traumatize him(lol...that he cares for)...so taking sasuke at 13yrs old does not guarantee that he(oro)would have awaken MS...let alone EMS and then rinnegan...
so once again...there is something special about sasuke out of all other uchiha...this is the very reason kabuto was still pursuing him.if he was indeed perfect sage...why the need for sasuke?
he was capable of doing SM when he approached obito with proposal...and asked for sasuke in return...why???
You still need Sharingan/Rinnengan to master all jutsu.
hell danzou had a couple sets in his arm...don't you think while being in kahoots with danzou.don't you think oro would have access to some or atleast a pair?
kabuto,asked obito for a zetsu...i could see oro requesting sharingans as payment for his experiments/time/etc...
why was sasuke sought over naruto by oro?
naruto possessed the kyuubi and oro knew he was uzumaki(obviously if danzou knew)...so if he were in need of a body immediately.
wouldn't naruto be the most likely one...instead of a kid who's eyes haven't fully awaken(not knowing if you will be able to accomplish this yourself)?
Sasuke has the ONLY set of eyes that can give Kabuto and Orochimaru acess to all the jutus in the world.
you mean to tell me that he risked losing sasuke during the waves arc to see if he could cut it?
i don't think his eyes are special...hence them now being itachi's(which those were the eyes oro wanted)...but sasuke is wanted by kabuto now also.if he knows who and what obito is about...there is no doubt that he is aware of the sharingan cache he holds...
sasuke is more relevent than just his dojutsu...to the likes of the true geniouses of the manga(kabuto/oro)...

sidenote...there is a reason kishi gave sasuke the name of a senju decendant...a sarutobi...
maybe him and itachi's mother had a lil' senju in her
I would say"you'll see" but Kabuto or Orochimaru will never get Sasuke eyes or body. Kabuto didn't know for a fact that Madara eyes can evolve, he only had a theory. Sasuke eyes are the only one that can prove his theory,I'm sure if Sasuke didn't have the sharingan then they wouldn't want his body either.
