Today we aren’t gonna talk about the guy behind the mask . And your guess is as good as mine !
No , let’s talk about Danzō Shimura . The guy who did so much behind a black screen and yet some think of him as a patriote . A hero even .
Know that I do not share that opinion , Danzō is no better then Orochimaru or Madara when he was alive .
Read about Danzō Shimura here (for Justsu and manga related) .
I truly despise peoples like Danzō , they tend to see themself as the only one worthy to rule . They usually make the rules and send others to the slaughter for their noble goal .
And what I hate in him , isn’t his goal per se . He had as any other shinobi of Konoha a right to apply to be the next Hokage .
I hate the fact that he though that others were mere tools to be used and then discarded . His philosophy or beliefs give him that option . To send willing (brainwashed beforehand huh) shinobi to sacrifice themself while he , who is advanced in age and has probably one leg in the grave already sit and sip some tea .
How is that fair ?????
His philosophie was :
To be a Shinobi is to sacrifice oneself . Closing your eyes to the sunlight .
Distinguishing yourself in the shadows . That is the true form of a Ninja .
To be a rogue , you must walk where there is only shadows . To be a theif darkness must be your mistress . To be Dark and evil you only have to create a stupid philosophy and make others believe in it . Oh and if you wanna be a Hokage Danzo , well you gotta learn how to sacrifice YOURSELF instead of others .
That is a lesson he never , ever learned and failed at it badly .
He taugh this philosophy to Shisui and Itachi Uchiha . Whom both embrace it fully , and we know how both end up right ?
Down the Styx !
To sacrifice oneself shouldn’t be taken lightly . Life is something that is precious , more precious then power or wealth . Why ? because what good power or riches will do YOU if you are DEAD ?!?!?
To sacrifice one life for the greater good is a noble thing , you protect those you love by giving up your own life . But Danzō didn’t think this is how it should be . For him , it was the opposite . Send others to the slaughter so the mass can get fat and richer .
I’m not saying that the Uchiha are saints without any sin . They maybe evils , they maybe do voodoo in that secret hideout of theirs lol
But what evil did Itachi and Shisui do hum ? What evil did Sai do ? And so did countless shinobi that came to work for him . If you brainwashe or use an information that YOU know will change or influence someone into saying YES . It isn’t a willing choice , it is a blackmailed choice . The freewill gone by the window as soon as you use the said information to alter one answer .
Like Konohamaru say : REMEMBER IT !!!
Of course , it doesn’t mean that what Sasuke is doing is any better . Danzō did use sensitives informations to trick Itachi into doing what he wanted . What he saw as the ultimate ‘Answer’ . Remind me a bit of Hitler !
On that yes , Sasuke is right to seek his head and he got it on a platter . And the 2 others morons , them too are guilty of the Uchiha Clan slaughter . So them too should be on trial or under Sasuke sword . For they are the teamates of Danzō and know what he did and probably agreed or voted for his ‘solution’ .
Sarutobi , though I wonder if he was truly guilty . I know he was his friend just like Naruto’s for Sasuke (or so the Narutopedia claim) . But if Danzō took Shisui eye before Itachi kill the clan .
Remember the flashback where Itachi get a visit from the cop where they say they think he did it ?
Well the clan was still alive and running !
If this is the case , does that mean that Danzo had that ‘brainwashe’ technique ? You know , the one he used on the leader of the neutrale country . I mean , if he had Shisui eye back then , it would be easy to think that the negotiation failed with the Uchiha during their coup d’Etat because Danzō was manipulating Sarutobi and it failed in purpose so he could introduce his fucking ‘Solution’!!!
It would also mean , why the two others morons think of him so highly . Sure maybe when they were kids they liked him . So it make controlling them even more easy……
Would you keep a watch on someone you claim is your friend ?
No , usually we give our trust and hope for the best . Some friends are true friends and will help you and care for you . And some turn out to be nothing but snakes . They will rob you , hate you or break you and then leave .
Believe it! LOL it does happen , and more often then we wish .
But did Danzō use his eye Jutsu to controle Sarutobi ? Probably , cose I find it weird that Sarutobi didn’t do anything when Danzō went to help Hanzo . Sure maybe he didn’t know about that little trip on the country side .
And what about the Hyuga affaire ?
And Yahiko death ?
Did Danzō meddle in the Hyuga affaire ?
I can see the two old mens sitting and plotting . Since when you look at both of them , they are both leaders . They both need to secure their seat by any mean necessary and both think they hold the truth .
lead the Hyuga and is responsible for his two sons misery , Hinata and Neji misery !
Just like Danzō , he put the clan before family and it’s members .
Some may say that in the end , Danzō did the right thing . He died protecting Konoha . His last words were for the village .
But is that enough to redeem someone ?
I don’t think so . At least that’s my personal opinion .
I do not think just because in the end , he got cornered and died that make him a ‘Fine shinobi’ . That he died a ‘honorable’ death .
First , before his demise remember that he didn’t want to die . He started running !!!!!
That kill the ‘Honorable’ part to me 😄
And when he finaly collapsed and was breathing his last…..
He aknowledge his position as always was and will be known as the guy who hide in the shadow . And also that he still hold that grudge that ate at him .
Funny how it turn out for him in the end . One could say , he was an old version of Sasuke . And as it turn out , when the tide turned against him , he was running and he run fast for an old guy !
One good action does not erase years and years of bad actions . If it was the case , then there is no need for hell !
Actually they would be all seeking new job , since Paradise would be packed cose everyone just kill himself and there you go . All your sins are forgiven cose in the end you ‘sacrified ‘ yourself for someone else then you . While all the while you were alive you were sacrifying someone else .
What we learned from Danzo ?
1- Don’t wait to ask ‘what you were…’ to that somebody , learn from him to NOT WAIT to ask that if you really wanna know where you stand with that person!
2- If you feel ‘inferior’ to someone , it isn’t that someone fault! grow up !
3- If you meet the masked guy and he has Sasuke with him and your bodyguard are nowhere to be found . Don’t be a smart ass and think because you have Frankstein arm you can take both of them and rule the world . Idiot!
