If only the elders gave, Madara a chance then perhaps he would have turned out for the better. The bigger antagonist during the birth of the leaf is, Tobirama.
I don't know much yet, but looks like in a few chapters we might see an Orochimaru vs Third Hokage rematch battle, but take it with a grain of salt, the interview hasn't been finished translating yet
they already fought, have Orochimaru face someone else; I'd rather see him fighting Naruto, or Madara, or Obito.
BTW, new chapter is out; Hashirama kicks @$$, it seems he could have taken down Madara any time he wanted; Madara was like WTF.
Also there is one page where they show Madara`s eye. When I originally read the manga yesterday, I immediately thought Madara cast genjutsu and now it seems even more likely since hashirama thought he killed him but it might just be genjutsu all along
This is the page
Not to mention the moon shown in the next page. All too suspicious
I thought it was Madara trying to use his eyes on Hashirama and failing at it, but you might be right, it was probably all just an illusion.
Also, after Madara falls to the ground unconscious Hashirama looks up with an exclamation mark "!", then they show the mountain with some marks; I think it means someone was watching them, so another theory would be that Madara tried to use his eyes on Hashirama but failed, after he "Kills" Madara and leaves the person watching the fight saves Madara.
Yeah I agree with the genjutsu theory with the eye close up.
Also Im sure Madara boasted to the kages that only he could tell Hashiramas wood clones from the real one.
The goal of this battle most likely was to get a hold of enough senju cells or dna in my opinion.
Whatever Madara's Mangekyo/ems ability is, is they key here for sure. Naruto generations showcased Madara manipulating time with his eye but that could just be a fancy way of showing the sharingans ability to predict the next move.
Also how awesome is the cover for the latest volume:
Shit is going down!!!
yeah, new chapter was tight; however, I thought Orochimaru's reason for joining Sasuke was very lame.
I didn't expect Karin to be an Uzumaki... or did they mention that before? it looks like more Uzumaki's are popping out, I guess in the end Naruto will reestablish the Uzumaki clan too.
The question now is; does Madara and Obito stand a chance?
And I'm curious, since Orochimaru had died, is it possible he'll face his own zombie version? I'm sure not since they never showed Oro among the dead ones, but it'd be interesting.
Oh, and let's not forget that Tsunade was already healing all the kages, so how in the world can Madara put up a fight?
I cant see any other way of sasuke to become stronger cuz right now naruto is like Super Sayain 3 and Sasuke is ss2
can you link to an image?
So we have to wait 2 weeks for all the awesomeness that's going to happen, oh man can't wait to see 3/4s of Team Minato reunite!
