A little hint about Tobi/Obito?
I found this really interesting thread on other Naruto forum about Tobi and thought I should share with you.
This guys is so observant, lol.
During one of the filler arcs, Tobi stopped at a Dango shop with Deidara, and said this.
“Ichibi, Nibi, Sanbi, boku wa Tobi!” while referring to the tailed beasts.
It translates to: “Ichibi, Nibi, Sanbi, and I’m Tobi!”
Tobi’s plan for world domination is to revive the Juubi, or “Ten-Tailed Beast”.
But he also said that he was trying to achieve a complete form of his own.
Here’s the neat part:
When counting from one to ten in Japanese, it goes:
Ichi, Ni, San, Yon, Go, Roku, Shichi, Hachi, Kyuu, Juu.
When counting objects, it goes differently:
Hitotsu, Futatsu, Mittsu, Yottsu, Itsusu, Muttsu, Nanatsu, Yatsu, Kokonotsu, To.
The tailed beasts get their names by combining the character for the number of tails they have with the character for “bi”.
That means that Tobi’s statement to Deidara can actually be translated as:
“One-Tailed, Two-Tailed, Three-Tailed, and I’m Ten-Tailed!”
What do you guys think?
