Re: Naruto Manga 458 Discussion / 459 Predictions
i just figured it out!
tobi/madara isn't madara or tobi at all. it's uchiha shishui!
he is famed as shunshin no shishui (shinshui of the body flicker) which explains why madara's TELEPORTATION jutsu are so damn good.
Shisui's name has two interpretable meanings. Combining the words Shi (死, Death) and Sui (水, Water), Shisui would mean "death water", which is a reference to his death by drowning. "Shisui" alone means "'still water'" or "'stagnant water'".
leave it to a proud uchiha to fake his death in water knowing that his name means "death water." this can also be a pun because he didn't die in still water but in a river, suggesting weak truth, or a FAKED death.
Shisui is the only named member of the Uchiha clan whose face has yet to be shown.
he was also considered as an older brother to itachi. explaining why the half of madara's face that we saw with sasuke looked like a middle aged man. and not a 90 yr old madara, or a 30 yr old obito.
it was really shishui that helped itachi, and survived. it appears the mangekyo sharingan can amplify the original talents of the user. shishui as madara explains why itachi would join such an organization as well.
also, growing up in a village with jiraiya also explains how he knew of nagato's existence and saught him out. shishui is using madara as clout, when he is prolly really a decendent of madara explaining why he knew so much of the sharingan's powers cos to be honest: i don't think an eternal MS would ever need to go back to normal sharingan like tobi's usually is.
