Everyone used to say that Kubo (the author of Bleach) is a troll. Than what about Kishimoto?
Though, probably out of remorse, Kishimoto did put in some real action too. But never the less I would say that this fight so far was the worst of all major fights as of recently. I said quite a lot of bad things about Kakashi’s attempts to talk Obito out of his ideas, I won’t repeat it. Then there is this genjutsu that wipes out all the actions. And what is next?
Well, I guess every one in this manga is thinking only about Naruto at this point.
Then there is this small reward for our patience:
Here Kishimoto was less extreme. Both of them got injured, but Kakashi was shown to be ok (you can’t make the same cliffhanger twice in a row). Obito, on the other hand, was injured badly enough to end the fight. Good thing it ended, it was going on for too long.
Then something good started happening:
Now that is interesting. It seems that right now Madara is planning to make Obito revive him. That would presumably kill Obito. That is probably the best end for him from the shonen storytelling point of view. He is not bad enough to be killed by one of the good guys, and at the same time there is no way he can be forgiven. But there is always a third way, and most of the Akatsuki went there.
Why does Madara want to be revived? He will be able to become jinchuriki, yes. Though to do that he will need to do something about all the people who are attacking the Ten Tailes, I think. Not sure if that is would be easy. Also, after being revived he will lose his immortality. That might be a problem as well. But well, if he manages to become Juubi jinchuriki, he will be on the more equal ground with his opponents.
At any rate, hope we will see something interesting soon. Till the next time (^_^)/
