I'm pretty sure that that's just scarring from the battle and I agree that I don't think Obito looks older than Kakashi if you go by the left side of his face.

Now we know why Tobi originally had only one eye hole in his mask.

His left eye was given to Kakashi while he retained his right eye.

When he acquired Nagato's Rinnegan he must have implanted Nagato's eye in to his empty eye socket and got a new mask with holes for both eyes.

Except he did have a sharingan in his unseen eye. You know, the one he used for Izanagi? But we already know he has plenty of Sharingans.

well if that was the case these would be zetsu's recordings I would imagine which would mean that they should be perfect since he just captured what he saw.

I for one like that Kakashi was much older when he became a chuunin.
lol I never got into the databooks although i didnt doubt their legitimacy. i do also like kakashi being advanced from the others, which he still is i guess since he passed and at least obito didnt at first. but it was still off by a few years.

he always had another hidden sharingan in his left eye socket to use izanagi for emergency situations like sasuke's amaterasu and konan's paper bomb trap

Rin is dead.

Kakashi confirmed it in one of the previous chapters.

All of the people close to him (father, sensei, team mates) died and he specifically said he wasn't able to save Rin.

But oh look one of them survived! Obito and Kakashi have some catching up to do.

Oh yeah I forgot about that. That glass tank full of Sharingan eyes behind the table where Tobi operated on Sasuke was freaky.

I wonder what Obito's full background is.

I'm guessing that Madara trained him since they know each other and have similar abilities. But where is the justification for Obito going from a kind little Chunnin getting outclassed by Kakashi and Gai to a Kage level ninja as twisted and evil as Tobi? How is Kishimoto going to rationalize the enormous power increase and dramatic ideology change? Madara randomly finding a dying Uchiha kid under a boulder and deciding to train him as his apprentice simply will not do.

Like Gaara, Nagato, Sasuke and all the other tortured souls before him Obito needs a reason to become evil. There's needs to be a believable explanation for why he became the deranged Akatsuki mastermind hellbent on taking over the world. Since this is perhaps the biggest plot point in the series (Obito's evil decisions are central to the most significant conflicts in the Naruto manga) and since Kishimoto has been building towards this reveal for 600 chapters he's got to come up with something good to have it all make sense.

i don't really care about the obito angle. if kishi manages to wiggle his way out of his tight corner then fine! if he doesn't, i don't really care. i'll probably just enjoy reading the posts here and cracking jokes about them. but my beef is with this chapter itself. it's just wrong. i don't mind the no-dialogues thing except for the fact that it made kishi's mistakes more obvious since i focused more on the images. i'm sure i'm not the only one who noticed this. this is the reason why this chapter irks me.

- minato could have very well been hokage during the kannabi bridge battle. the face missing is not absolute proof that he wasn't. the monument needs to be constructed. it may have not been up there because it wasn't finished. and completed by the end of that first chuunin exam
- as far as this age thing goes, maybe obito is older. by like 2 or 3 yrs. i am not a datebook reader so i don't really know, but i also don't recall ages being cited in the manga…they could have just been in the same class, kakashi 5, obito 7 or 8. the numbers make more sense in that scenario.
- somebody mentioned to me earlier that there is no need to defend kishis mistakes. they are right, i know. i just like discussing and thinking about stuff

Uhhh, no, Minato became Hokage because after that battle he proceeded to end the war then and there.

None the less, I have no idea why Kishi chose Obito of all people. He was super weak sause in the Kakashi Gaiden (Thats why some no name ninjas smashed him litterally). And he has just 1 ms technique that I still don't understand how he got. So which friend did he kill to get MS kamui? Rin? Kakashi developed thinking he killed Obito. It's baffling how much of a power upgrade he got in such a short time.

Kishimoto probably thought of Obito as the main villain of Naruto all along.

The signs were there.

An Uchiha. One eye. A broken body. The spikey hair. Obito was always Tobi.

What I'm baffled by is indeed how the dorky little Obito we saw in flashbacks became this ultra powerful mastermind who was living in the shadow of his more talented classmates, left for dead and then somehow rivals the 4th Hokage in ability, in such a short time. I understand Obito's significance in the manga. He's the passionate young ninja dreaming of becoming Hokage who has enormous potential but doesn't pick up on things quickly so he looks like a loser and gets looked down on for his failures. He's the Naruto of his generation. The difference is somehow he became evil while Naruto learned the value of friendship and became good.

Madara obviously has a hand in whatever transformation lead Obito to become Tobi. I can't wait for Kishimoto to explain this one.

As far as the Mangekyo Sharingan is concerned I don't recall an explanation for how even Kakashi awakened it.

He's been carrying the guilt for Obito's death for years and even if he feels responsible enough for killing him what triggered him to actually awaken it when he did?

That too needs explaining.

I think a chapter with no dialog was simply an artistic tool by Kishimoto, tell the story solely with imagery. We learn a thing or two about Obito without anyone uttering a word and then in the last panel BAM the big reveal.

I can really see naruto usin the talk-no-jutsu and turning Tobi against madara (who as I recall is on the way to wreck shit, can't wait!)

Kishi loves redeeming the villains to show that they really aren't evil but just misguided.

Little doubt about that. It's probably been brought up already, but the Madara/Tobi that fought Minato seemed to be a full-grown adult, and not a adolescent like Kakashi, Asuma and others in Obito's age group were shown to be. I was thinking maybe the Madara that fought Minato was the original and not Obito. But that wouldn't explain how he was using the phasing abilities, because that's linked to Kamui, which is specific to Obito/Kakashi

I guess the relationship is similar to Oro/Kabuto. Madara somehow put some of his powers/abilities into Obito. Maybe he aged his body to maturity somehow too. And then the real Madara died somehow, leaving Obito to take on his identity.

It's also strange (to me) that Madara gained the rinnegan shortly before his death, which was after his fight with Hashirama...was the first and second even around during the Nine tails attack, unless it was an inconsistency/discrepancy.

I think we can guarantee that Madara will be arriving where Obito is soon. They both need to be present when some major questions are answered.

I wouldn't be shocked if next chapter went back to the Kages with Madara killing off Oonki and making his way toward Naruto at the end of the chapter. So in 601 Obito can begin his exposition.

Is it really that baffling? Consider how strong Naruto was at the start of Shippuden and how strong he is now. How much time has elapsed? What about Kabuto's power upgrade?

I think the entire reason for the obvious parallels Kishimoto drew in this chapter between Kakashi/Obito/Rin and Naruto/Sasuke/Sakura is that we are very soon going to see a show down between former comrades (Kakashi & Obito).

Obito's sacrifice and death had a significant effect on Kakashi, very much shaping him into the man he has become. Just as Sasuke's defection has had a major influence on shaping Naruto's growth, both personally and in terms of his strength. For the time being at least, his goal to become Hokage has become secondary to his desire to bring Sasuke back into the fold when it comes to what is driving his search for further control over his power.

What happens next between Obito and Kakashi will, I believe, foreshadow the impending showdown between Naruto and Sasuke.

As for the people who are shocked that Tobi was Obito, all I have to say is REALLY?! I thought it was obvious after Kakashi Gaiden that they were one in the same. What would have been the point of that arc otherwise? Clearly he was going to be important later on. I, for one, am excited to see where this goes from here.

i dont think so. then who's sharingan was recording these flashbacks? obito's weren't awakened at this time and kakashi obviously didnt have his. i think it was just an artistic decision as has been pointed out by some people in this thread

we are in store for some heavy flashbacks detailing everything from the first VotE fight to madara and hashirama's exact deaths. and of course everything involving zetsu and tobi as well

In my opinion I had a strong feeling that Tobi would be Obito but the more I thought about it the two masked men are completely different individuals. People are trying to get explanation as to who "the" masked man is. I dont think Kisame and especially Itachi would be mistaken about long haired being madara. When I think about it who is a very important character towards the story and this war, and who we know the least about, the one person we're constantly forgetting, the one who could make an exact replica that could fool anyone? Zetsu, who has been with tobi since his introduction. Once we find out who Zetsu really is (as in both parts) and his secrets we'll be able to uncover the secrets behind Obito's survival and why he's where he is now. I mean Zetsu was introduced after Kakashi carried Naruto out of the VotE and we never really learned anything about him till just before the war. Zetsu's always been the secret to Tobi it's just a matter of time till we know.
