You should watch episode 151 for the simple fact that it's a Toshiyuki Tsuru episode, and as a result it looks fantastic. I think you can skip all the rest.

So, I'm not sure if this be the place to ask this, but... between Madara's two high-tier Fire attacks, what exactly is the difference between Gōka Mekkyaku and Gōka Messhitsu?

Mekkyaku

Messhitsu

sounds like madara just has a large vocabulary

Okay, so... The first is a wide-area wall of flame, and the second is a narrower, more focused stream of fire. Got it.

By the way, does anyone know if Yamato's real name is Tenzo? Kakashi has referred to him by that name up to two times now, so I thought it might be. Then again, Kakashi was also in the ANBU before, so maybe Tenzo is just another codename.

Altogether I find it pretty odd that we haven't learned Yamato's real name. He's not even in the ANBU anymore, he's just acting as a regular jounin. So why keep up the codename? It's meaningless. Does the guy himself have no problems that none of his friends actually know his real name?

according to narutopedia:
While Kakashi was still in the ANBU, Yamato's codename was Tenzō (テンゾウ, Tenzō) which Kakashi sometimes still calls him by although Yamato prefers that Kakashi uses his new codename (Yamato). His real name is unknown.

Here's another good one:

Why didn't Nagato revive his parents and Yahiko with Rinne Tensei? We know for a fact that there is no time limit on the technique, since Madara planned for Nagato to revive him more then a decade later. And even if Nagato didn't know the technique when Yahiko died, he could have used it as soon as he learned it.

Because drama and plot convenience. The fact that the eyes were never his might also have something to do with it. Also, Nagato kind of sucked at using the eyes.

It was never explicitly stated one way or another, so your guess is as good as anyone's.

I figured as much. It just makes Nagato's so very tragic history kinda seem stupid to me.

So if he revived Yahiko and died in the process that would be less tragic?

Why would he die in the process? Konan made it very clear Nagato died because he used the technique when he was pretty much empty of chakra. A full powered chakra Nagato should easily be able to bring two or three people back without giving up his life.

No, she didn't make that clear. Nagato said that he can still revive them because they died just recently. It means that as with many other jutsu Kishi set up a few rules: with the rinnegan you can revive people without dying if they died only recently, it only costs you chakra. If you want to revive someone who died long ago then you need to give up your own life, that is you can do that only once. This second rule was given when Tobi complained to Zetsu that the rinnegan was supposed to be used to revive Madara but Nagato wasted it on random people. The rules to resurrect people were set up long before the war. What Konan said was that Nagato was exhaused by the long fight against both Konoha and Naruto so he should not waste his chakra on a huge jutsu where he revives masses of people far away of himself. With that he exhaused all his chakra and therefore he died. If the rinnegan needed only some chakra to revive anyone who ever died that would be the stupidest thing ever, then Nagato could just spam it and revive the entire world. What would be next then? The power to make and old man young. And finally immortality for the whole world Well it would be fun to watch how Nagato deals with the overpopulation of the Narutoverse. He could revive all the dogs too

Impressive theory, but I wonder if that's really how it works.
