he had Potential and from page 7 , you see mokuton sashiki no justu when he yelled and also on page 13 Zestu said you were able to use Hashirama's justu.
when you active MS so you gain a unique genjutsu there is no reason to say how he did.
Why didn't Obito take his Sharingan back from Kakashi?
And let's not forget that the circumstances of this situation are not just...oh wow "high school syndrome" and then rage...the actual emotional trip started from losing half of his body, trusting the eye to Kakashi, and only after that witnessing the same Kakashi piercing Rin...it's like your brother killing your sister, while hearing things about your sister, that she might have been somebody else entirely...
What I somewhat agree on, is how he used a specific jutsu with a seal...that should've taught at least, but we don't know what techniques he has been shown in Madara's lair, or what sort of basics, so it's not really bad writing, because it was foreshadowed that he would be able to use Mokuton, especially when under great stress...
The hate, anger resonating with the body is nothing new to this manga, so yeah...him using mokuton and Kamui is not really unexpected...

I don't care if it doesn't make sense, if its badly done or whatever, but the panel with the branches and the shower of blood was epic.
Like also how Obito broke down, basically turning into a beast, very human, I mean ninja or not if you see your supposed best friend murder your supposed love interest you either break down crying or snap.
And the way Obito snapped was epic.
Why he didn't use it against Yondaime is obvious, Kishi probably didn't planned Obito having Mokuton suits back then, even though it would have been a great tease to show Tobi using Mokuton.
On a side note, am I the only one who noticed how in the top left panel the symbol of the fodder doesn't seem the Kiri one, but actually the leaf one?
Kiri has 4 waves, 2 on top and 2 on the bottom, while that one seems like the beginning of the leaf one.
Mokuton piercing would have been too slow to use against Minato....however whats funnier is Tobi showed up with a chain
I think thats a Kiri ninja, the symbol is out of panel. However if Madara was behind this I wouldn't be surprised if he and Danzo were collabarating at this point..
I thought so too, but then next page you see how the two lines are perfectly allineated, one on the bottom and one on top.
It could've been an error or a matter or prospective, true, but its more epic when Konoha do bad things and they are the bad guys

Don't forget that Naruto was inspired by Jiraiya in his ideal of peace, why wouldn't Obito be inspired by Madara's one, expecially after such a traumatic event?

DId you guys saw that Obito while going to mokuton tobi mode with branching growing from his body, got black rodes too like those used by Nagato to control the mazo ?

This chapter was fantastic, in the end I felt like I was reading a Seinen. Here I thought Naruto was past things getting really bloody. It was such an unusual experience when reading Naruto, truly amazing just because of the feeling it gave. Obito's spam was pretty insane and hard to believe, as in he instantly mastered half of his Kamui ability and spammed Mokuton like a pro, but it sure was badass, and the last panels with the pool of blood and tree encircling the moon were fantastic.
Regarding Kakashi, it still does make sense. Like mentioned by others, being non-Uchiha, even being as skilled as he was, would logically complicate things. On top of that he had serious stamina issues, and in addition he fainted right after Obito activated it. Just the activation likely strained Kakashi too much, and if he fainted chances are he didn't even know about his MS for a long time.
Now I wonder why Obito has never used Mokuton in the present story. Did he lose the ability somehow? It doesn't seem to come from Zetsu, but the material that makes up half his body now.
Very exciting chapter !! Loved it !!
It seems that Rin had to be killed because the Mist wanted her alive ! Who knows for what purpose !!
am I the only who prefer the story/actions from flashbacks rather than current/naruto generation?
things were much darker and strategic
WE FINALLY KNOW HOW KAKASHI AWAKENED THE MS POWER.
I wanted to know this ever since I saw him using it but I didn't think Kishi would make a story about it but I'm glad he did.
This whole Obito fiesta is really getting on my nerves. Hurry up and end please.
Wondering why Kakashi didnt snap... I mean he did the killing, it obviously traumatized him too. But honestly I do feel more sorry for Kakashi than i do Obito. Was quite a sad chapter.
