Default Interesting character development

I have to say, with this chapter, I am really impressed with the character development, Kishi has really stepped up his game since the Obito/Tobi explanation (to be clear not that it WAS Obito, the reasoning of why). Looking at Orochimaru, its like Orochimaru had character development from a far observing Kabuto, and actually may end up an ally? That's certainly a huge turn from where this whole thing started with him back at the Chunin Exams.

I am really interested in Sasuke's changes though. It seams that he's done a 180 and decided that, with full knowledge of his clan now, he would rather protect the village rather than destroy it. I wonder if this will sort of lead into this idea of Naruto eventually receiving Sasuke's eyes (as Kishi likes to rehash and fit current events into past events we would have a rin, kakshi and obito moment potential here). I kind of hope that isn't the case, but it would certainly be interesting if it did, and if it was written in a way that would make sense.

The only thing I wonder now, is if the Naruto and Sasuke battle will actually happen? If I remember correctly, and I followed the character development properly, it was never about the village, it was more about jealousy and Naruto always being stronger. This sort of makes me think that Kishi may have side stepped the battle? idk...

I'm not fully convinced that Orochimaru is going to play nice the whole time. He's a smart man and knows that whatever he wants to do he needs to stop Madara and Obito first since he can't accomplish any of his ambitions if he's trapped in their genjutsu. Things are running a bit too smoothly for the Alliance at this point and I wouldn't be surprised if Orochimaru turned the Kage against them (or just Konoha) after Madara and Obito have been defeated. As things stand there is no way Madara and Obito can take on Naruto and a supercharged Alliance as well as Sasuke, Oro, and the Edo Hokages. Maybe the Juubi will mature again and change things up, but even then...

I think that at this point, The Kages, especially, Hashirama and Minato will not have the time to fight Madara...The Juubi would have been out of Madara and Tobi's control so Hashi and Minato would be spending their time trying to control the Juubi...

Sasuke is the one to fight MADARA... Naruto will have a power surge from just seeing Sasuke change.... And their combination at team will be most epic!

Default Re: Interesting character development

I don't think Orochimaru can turn Hashirama against anyone. That in itself kind of keeps Orochimaru in check, but I think its a good character development to see where he has gone, and get some more background on him. Just having him as "that evil guy" without something to cause it just sort of makes him a one dimensional character.

I do want to see Naruto get a power up, but I also want to see him be the full SoSP, fulfilling the prophecy. I just think this will be a segway for that, and it will actually make Sasuke (potentially) what we would call a tragic hero. Through that it would allow his return to the village as a fallen hero, rather than just forcing him back alive into society, which would make no sense. idk, there is a lot of interesting implications in this chapter.

Hashi might get tied up fighting the other Kage if Oro turns, but I don't think Oro can control him.

But will Oro switch? I mean, his goals go away if Madara wins too. So could we see a defeat of Madara/Obito only to swing back around to Oro being the main baddie again?

Oro is still the main antagonist especially he is more evil, slick, and sly than both obito and madara. He's sure to turn on the group after all he has his own goals. Sasuke and the sharingan, that or his other goal is to defeat rock Lee and his ninja pals and to obliderate konoha. Lol

Oro is just going with the safest route. As soon as the war is over, he will disappear and start causing trouble again.

It seams like there is quite a lot to the contrary. If he is no longer the enemy of the leaf, what conflict still exists? The whole reason the fight was supposed to happen was because Naruto and Sasuke were on opposite sides of whether the leaf should exist or not....That just got resolved.

So why will it happen? What conflict exists that would cause this?

Now that you mention it a Sasuke vs Madara battle out would be a very cool thing in the manga and Naruto seeing how Sasuke changed after meeting the Hokages (Especially Hashirama) I'm actually quite excited. At least the series is getting quite good!

WHAT IF Sasuke is just playing nice because he knows everything will be in vain unless Obito and Madara are eliminated? He could still carry out his ambition to crush the leaf, but not until this whole war situation is dealt with.
