OMG! THE MASK HAS FINALLY FALLEN . And the masked man is none else but OBITO UCHIHA .
Well , that’s really what I like to say . But WRONG!
Sorry for all of you outta there , who are doing the Victory dance !
Nope , it doesn’t fly with me .
All of you outta there who are already celebrating (before knowing the why , the how and the when ) . I suggest , you hold on that bottle of champagne before going Bonzai !
There is one thing that someone on Narutospot pointed out , that we (me included ) completely forgotten .
During the attack of the 9-tails on Konoha (the night Naruto was born ) . Minato said someone was controlling the 9-tails .
In Naruto Shippuden Episode 248 , we see clearly a masked man fight the 4th Hokage .
Now the real question is : How old was Obito during that time ???
And as seen in this picture , he isn’t in the group . (neither is Ryn ) . Yet , during that same time . Itachi noticed how odd that his parents chose that day to be absent . (and you know if the Uchiha knew about the attack it kinda explain why the 3rd failed in the negociation . Yet , we could say the same , where were all konoha shinobi when Itachi was killing everyone huh ) .
From the flashback , he was maybe around 8 or maybe older . So how can he be fighting the 4th Hokage and be a kid at the same time ?
Even if it’s Obito standing before Kakashi and Naruto and Gai . It doesn’t mean HE IS the masked man .
Come on , if they can make 10 robes for the members of Akatsuki . They can make 2 orange crappy mask and those dark clothes .
Yes , if there are 2 Tobi the only trouble is that we didn’t see them together .
And don’t forget , we have yet to hear the voice of Obito . So far , we have one strong kinda old voice of the masked man . And shinobi can alter their voices at will (and with training ) . Remember , when Yamato easily imitated Sasori voice right on the spot to fit with his disguise ?
As for those outta there , who claim that the masked man is MADARA Uchiha .
Answer this question if you can :
If Madara Uchiha is just a soul now that he ripped his contract (before the Edo-tensei was dissolved) . How can he be inside Obito controlling him and at the same time fighting the 5 Kages ???
Because , as far as I know . The only being so far who know how to , and took the risk to imitate No-Nose aka Voldemort
He is the only being so far in the manga that taken a step to split his soul , so he can come back .
Madara so far , is a full soul . And he is fighting the 5 Kages . So unless they reveal he did the same thing……
I say the real vilain is either an unknown (and unseen) person yet to be revealed . Or Orochimaru (why not ? as you can see , he is like a cold he always manage to come back) .
There is Sasuke who is still around and walking still the wrong path . (I swear , he should learn to read road-sign) .
And then there is the Aloé-Vera . We do know that the white side of him has been destroyed by Sasuke . But the Black Zetsu is still around , breathing and mysterious as ever . His role in the manga is yet to be revealed .
Of course , there are many other theory like Izuna being the masked man .
But that one nobody wanna explain , if he is still around . How come Madara on the battlefield claim his brother is dead .
Madara is arrogant , an asshole but a liar I do not think so . He doesn’t strike me as someone who would lie about something like that .
I think Madara had the same kind of relationship Sasuke had with Itachi . Sasuke being a Madara like (not just as powerful , so don’t go crazy ) .
Yet , there is one thing bothering me with Madara (beside the obvious of WHY IS HE STILL AROUND IF THE WORLD IS WORTHLESS !!) .
Why he want the 9-Tails , yet he has the power and seem aware of the existence of the 10-tails . Why did he never try to bring the 10-tails back .
When he captured the 9-tails , from what he said to Kurama , it sounded as he knew a great deal about the beast .
Yet , so far there is no flashback about him trying to be a host for the 10-tails or trying to revive the great beast .
So yeah , we are back to the starting point…..
But to cool it off , if you didn’t already start watching . I suggest to go and start watching Rock Lee and his Ninjas Pals . It’s freaking hilarious !
