Naruto 490

[chapter link]

Kabuto could yet prove to be the redeeming villain this series has needed for years. His pure interest in ninjutsu, as long as it remains unaffected by personal motives on either side of the war, is refreshing.

Ten bucks says Konohamaru was in the obscured coffin.

Wait, who’s Tokuma? Was it really necessary to create another Byakugan user when Negi and Hinata don’t get nearly enough face time as it is? That’s too bad. I was actually excited for a moment.

A plotline loosely involving Orochimaru develops and, all of a sudden, Anko reappears.

Whoa. What Naruto is doing is exactly the same as what Negi is doing in Negima. Neither author is copying the other, obviously, but… how strange.

Time to go find us an octopus! … that’s actually an ox. … inside of a Bee. I’m lost.

Final Flash: For a developmental chapter, it was enjoyable. Let the coffin-theorizing begin! Friend of the site Clint has presented the theory that the body contained in the coffin presented to Madara is none other than… Madara! Quoth Clint: “If you look at his reactions, and what he’s saying, in the context, it makes a ton of sense. Tobi actually isn’t Madara, and he had to join up with Kabuto, or Kabuto would reveal him.” A fascinating theory!

    I think its Madara also, but my theory is that Tobi is Madara but not the body… only the spirit or something like that, hence why his teleportation jutsu is second to none and the fact he cant actually fight at the present moment in time.

    But i also had another idea… Tobi is actually Madara’s brother (i forgot his name) and passes himself off as his brother because he is jealous or guilty for actually stealing madara’s eyes when madara was on his deathbed.
