Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 598 Discussion and 599 Predictions
Hi let me just repost my post from Tobi ID thread to give some thoughts for those people who are looking for a reason for a 'good boy' like Obito to turn into a madman like Tob(I hope this is allowed):
My thoughts are split on who Tobi is, just like the majority, I'm thinking he's Izuna. At first I'm with the crowd that it's too far fetched to assume Tobi=Obito.
But, considering the recent developments of the plot I'm afraid I'm leaning towards Tobi as being Obito. Anyway, I won't post about my thoughts on Izuna=Tobi because it's almost the same as everyone else's(those who believe Tobi=Izuna).
Moving on, what I would like to share are my thoughts about Tobi being Obito.
If Tobi is Obito (i'm not yet 100% convinced,note: this isn't a complete explanation on how tobi=obito just a thought):
I think the reason Tobi became how and what he is right now has something to do about a character that has been overlooked and neglected by many but holds great importance to Obito and Kakasahi. That's right I'm talking about Rin. As we all know she died but unfortunately the reason and events behind her death are still in the Kishi's locker, it's still unknown, a mystery. I believe Kishi meant it this way because the story of her death holds the explanation why Tobi turned into a madman. First we all know that Obito loves Rin now let me direct you to that eventful day when Obito was stucked under boulders of rocks, He decided to give kakashi his right eye as a gift then he made a request a 'WISH' for Kakashi to take care of Rin. Kakashi took it by the heart and decided that he would be Rin's protector even stating that he(kakashi) would sacrifice his own life just to save Rin if ever it needs to come to that. BUT we all know that Kakashi failed 'cause Rin died for some unknown reason.
Now, another thing that struck me was Tobi's line in the latest chapter(597) wherein he said to Kakashi: "You've seen reality, you should be able to understand...No 'WISH' can become true in this world" He really sounded like a really bitter person to me, like he is carrying something heavy inside.
I think those lines about a WISH implies something deeper. Maybe Obito during his recovering and brain conditioning years with Madara covertly witnessed Rin's death and Kakashi's short coming of protecting her. This convinced him to totally go with Madara's plan as the only solution for the shortcomings of the shinobi world. Furthermore Tobi also said in chapter 597 that he 'wants to make a world where HEROES don't have to make pitiful excuses in front of graves' now we all know that this is a pun to the failure of Kakashi 'the Hero of the Sharingan' to fulfill a dying Obito's sole WISH>>>There was a flashback scene showing Kakashi standing before a grave.
As we all know, my thoughts are interpreted from translated materials so I'm really not sure if the wordings were correct from the original Japanese meanings, but hey based on what i read these are my thoughts.
(In addition, based on new developments I think both Tobi and Kakashi acquired or developed their MS because of what happened to Rin)
Anyway, thank you for reading. What's your take?
