The other thing that bothers me? Remember a chapter with maybe the Niju Shotai, and Sakura mentioning their 'wireless devices'? Seems like those things could've come in handy as communication tools for the war rather than the funneling through HQ. In the same mold (technology) - it really makes you wonder how good the Konoha library is. Anyone remember it? It's where the cloud ninja were supposedly looking up information about Sasuke, etc. So.... between the library, technology and the fact that it wasn't so long ago, I honestly can't understand how something as significant as the 10 tails was 'forgotten by time'. Legend, myth, etc. The thing is for the Narutoverse, Ninjutsu etc. is 'real'.
But... oh well. Guess we have to suspend that part to enjoy the story a little. Yeah, it kind of bothered me too but I guess I can roll with it. It was supposed to be left as something of a surprise in the story I guess. Just like the face of the sage and what/who he looked like is still something of a mystery.
I often wondered about the time of the 'samurai' in this story...

The mountains, ocean shaping, etc. etc. seem massive but from what we saw of Perfect Susano'O, I almost believe that could be a pretty formidable counter to it since it seems able to alter the landscape just as much.
Anyone think the Jyuubi is going to be a stupid beast? Like - maybe Kishimoto took a page out of other series like Transformers - you know how the constructocons or othe rcharacters always seemed smarter as individual robots, then stupid lumbering (but powerful) oafs when combined?
Because I hope that isn't the case. Hopefully it has it's own personality and sentience, and we can find out where the hell it comes from, etc. Even if it's a legend of some sort. I just think it has to have some sort of purpose. If it is destruction then it is destruction. But just to exist and destroy for the sake of it, to me, seems a little lame. Like - what's he got to be all upset about? Or was the legend of the kyuubi really teh legend of the Jyuubi... that is, the jyuubi was the 'natural disaster' that appeared when malice and evil ran wild on teh world... ergo it would have been born from that time.
Perhaps this is the main reason why Rikudou Sennin and the Juubi weren't known about. They were considered a myth beyond belief due to their power and what they could do. The Juubi being able to destroy mountains with ease would be unheard of, and could be feared by many.
well,the kingin bros and suna was well aware of RS,his treasures,capturing/sealing bijuu and presumeably the jyubi itself.
maybe konoha hid this history from fear of what is going on right now...a rezzing of the jyubi?
if you think about it,this would be wise...because the village contained the very clan that could control bijuu and hashirama was in possession of multiple bijuu.this may have been a deciding factor also to split the bijuus up with their allied villages.
konoha has been known to bury history...minato/kushina being naruto's parents is a good example...they(elders) pulled the wool over the whole village's eyes.i would imagine there would have been some uneasiness to hashirama and tobirama that the uchiha would try and acquire the bijuu...hashirama might have seen madara controlling the kyuubi in one of their battles.deciding that he would have to acquire the others himself...shrug
Konoha definitely got alot dark secrets and i believe at this moment naruto doesn't stand a chance against madara/obito and juubi, it will be more likely that naruto and his friends are going to pull back and come up with a Better plan to deal with these monsters and probably a new are for naruto to have a power up and might switch to sasuke for a while but is going to be hard get away from madara and obito/juubi.
another thing...it would be wise for them to attack the jyuubi now instead of letting the enemies get their own plan together...right now the jyuubi is in the dark.hell,he might just smash the crap out of obito and madara.but i think it would be wise for them to keep going(if they are able to).
I suppose so. Heaven knows it isn't the biggest plot hole we've been asked to just politely ignore lately...Quote:
they may be able to go the route that jinchuurikis go through...and pull the chakra/will of the other bijuu out of the jyuubi...who knows...
well obito does have a rinnegan and i think kakashi knows how to seal...sai was the best at it that is why kaka-sensei left it to him(the swordsmen and such)
