Looks like Orochimaru release the soul of the previous Hokage inside the Seals stomach to do a Edo Tensei.

So..... Oro could have healed his arms and release the death god seal this whole time? Then pray tell, why did he wait this long to do it?

And wasn't the village destroyed by Pain? They filled that big hole from the Almighty Push and rebuilt the place while fighting a war?

i like it. i think it's the most interesting possibility. orochimaru's always been my favorite villain and now we will get to see him at full strength and probably stronger than ever at some point

Hell yeah! epic chapter is fucking epic! now I wonder if minato will see Naruto one more time, maybe hashirama will be the one to take down madara once again? kishi why you do this man!? I don't know how I will be able to wait one whole week for the next chapter, I hope that he won't take a break next week. That would kill me XD

I'm assuming it was the research done subsequently after the failure with Tsunade that Orochimaru discovered how to do it (or Kabuto even later on).

Still don't like that it's possible. The Death God thing had always felt like the the ultimate in Naruto but not so anymore.

Even if he researched it after the matter with Tsunade, he still should have gotten his arms back before trying to take over Sasuke's body.

I agree with the other points. It's kind of disappointing, that its possible, but even more so, that it was this easy. Everyone with the mask would have become the Shinigami and cutting a stomach isn't this hard to do.
The only thing that's remotely good is, that with this mask-explanation, we know finally how the fourth was able to learn a technique, that kills the user.

But there still are some flaws in Sasuke's plan: What if the Hokages doesn't answer his questions? Madara could free himself of the Edo Tensei, because he knows the technique. So the Hokages should be able to do the same, and what reasons do they have to tell everything they know to a traitor to the village? (Well, actually two traitors, since Orochimaru is present as well)
And what CAN they even know? Most of them were dead, when the Uchiha tried to rebel, which was the cause for killing the clan.
Using the Sharingan may help in forcing them to talk, but if the first was able to resist Madara, then Sasuke should be no match for him.



BTW, why are still people running around in Konoha?

Oh this is really good lol... Best chapter in quite a while; we're about to get some actual story telling, finally... I had no idea Sasuke had all those zetsu clones inside him; this may hint to him attaining the rinnegan since Zetsu has Hashirama's DNA. Orochimaru probably couldn't attempt this before because of it being right in the heart of Konoha considering his weak condition and the jutsu to open the door probably had a constraint associated with the ninja being an Uchiha.

I'm really looking forward to seeing him in action at full strength, and perhaps the zetsu body will allow him some extra perks as well. It would be interesting to see what he has to say about Tsunade. And, I must say with Sasuke standing behind Orochimaru the way he was during the ritual, I was pretty nervous that he was about to make a "change of plans" lol. I guess its Oro who has full control of the Kages, so we should be seeing this team together for at least a little while; which I don't mind at all. Sasuke definitely needs the side characters around him since he has the personality of a rock. I enjoyed the chatting between Oro and Sugetsu.

Damn this is big! I think with the way things are heading Madara is not the final villian, it will either be Sasuke or Oro. Harashima will get his moment to shine again against Madara, and possibly Tobi with Minato.

I must have missed something. Do we have any indication that the group of Hokage is going to take on Jyuubi and Co.?

I would be cool to see Minato smack Obito around a bit but I guess I missed the hint?

Saw that one coming from 30 chapters back.
My only hope now is that the 4th gets to see Naruto deliver the death blow to the Jyuubi

Hold up a minute, I must have missed a chapter here, when exactly was orochi summoned/revived? when did he absorb Kabuto's chakra? I must have missed a chapter.

So the next 20-30 chapters will be flashbacks and talking, all the infos about Madara`s goals, Uchiha Police Force, Uchiha rebellion and the nine tails attack will be revealed (there are things that were revealed but Sasuke doesn't know them, but I hope Kishi will skip them and give new infos).
Now that they are out there is a (big) chance Naruto will sense them and send a clone to check them up ... also hope he will take back the other half of Kurama.

^ that happened a while ago

They can't make the hokages take on the jyuubi, it will look like the village hasn't progressed in strength since the firsts days. Like getting your grandpa to fight a battle for you! I hope they don't interfere too much and let naruto surpass everyone

An interesting development that's for sure, though I have no idea what's going to happen in light of it.

So what exactly is Sasuke's motivation anymore? He still going for destroying the village? Does he even know anymore?

I'm very curious about the conversations that are going to take place here. I imagine he wants to talk with the First and Second about the clans and such. The Third perhaps regarding the massacre. No clue what he'd want with Minato since I can't think of information he'd have that would be of any interest except perhaps the bit that Obito was behind the Nine Tails attack.

That does open possibilities as the reason the Uchiha clan was going to rebel was because they resented the way they were being treated, which if I remember correctly was a result of the officials in Konoha thinking a member of the clan was behind Kurama's attack. Which makes the treatment of the clan at that stage and the events after the result of Obito and in a way Madara's actions. So that might give Sasuke a reason to join against them if temporarily as a means of getting revenge.

What's an even more interesting is what will happen after questioning. Will Orochimaru wipe out their will and have an army of probably the most powerful ninja ever with a few exceptions? Or have them retain it and join the fight?

If they did join the war, it would pretty much spell the end for Madara and Obito unless they pull off the whole plan.

Indeed, I'm wondering if it will just go back to Kurama or what.
