No more barbarian.

Tobi is way too dark to be a Uchiha. He looks more like Hashirama.

600,000,000,000 paper tags, rainbow bridge and lots of awesomeness from Konan! Madara acted like a true villain in this episode too, something I enjoyed quite a bit. The second part was almost dragging but it picked up pretty nicely towards the end, amazing episode.

Incoming penis jokes next week, you read it here first...

Madara is resilient, that's just a fact.
That guy is practically impossible to kill.
The second part was kinda sad after all that explanation..

This fight would've been a great way to show Tobi's ability to use MS. Susano'o has to be a better option than throwing away a Sharingan. They don't grow on trees like Konan's bombs. -.-'

I don't think Susano could've survived that, but what does it matter, he got himself a rinnegan now.

Good episode.

I have a feeling we may go into filler mode before the inevitable war starts.

I hope not though.

It looks the four episodes following 256 will be some kind of filler arc to celebrate the Naruto anime's 10th anniversary. The next canon arc will most likely start after those four episodes.

man, great characters dying left and right.

So what happens when you use Izanagi with the rinnegan?

Madara using a pipe to swat away paper-shuriken.

Nice bonus.

Ahh, knew this episode was coming soon. First Kushina, now Konan.

Kishimoto, why you hate older women?

Nothing because it's a sharingan technique :P

You just change the name to Creation of All Things.

Though they're basically the same...

If it makes you feel any better, Kishi seems to hate all women equally

Haha, I said older. I'd like to think she and Nagato were at least in their late 30s. Based on Jiraiya's age when he trained them, it always seemed like they were around the same age as Naruto's parents.

Yeah, but he doesn't kill the younger ones!
