Suigetsu: "That's... The first Hokage...? The real Hashirama who's been touted as a god of shinobi...?"
SFX: ZWWW... (Orochimaru possessing Zetsu)
Tobirama: "It's that shinobi Orochimaru again...!"
Hashirama: "What is going on?"
Hiruzen: "I suspect he undid the Reaper Death Seal... ...That has been keeping us sealed away.
And then performed the Edotensei..."
Minato: "No way... You solved how to undo that sealing jutsu...?
How, Mister Orochimaru?"
Orochimaru: "You underestimate me, Minato."
SFX: ZWP (Footstep)
"It was originally a sealing jutsu of the Uzumaki clan...
I simply researched the ruins and scattered documents of the now extinct clan... Ever since I lost my jutsu..."
Minato: "Lord first...
It appears we've been recalled into the world of the living..."
Who the hell are you?!"
Minato: "The fourth Hokage, sir."
Hashirama: "Ho!! Fourth, eh?!!"
SFX: SHUP (Suigetsu footstep)
Hashirama: "Nice, nice!! So the village has remained stable for a long time then!"
SFX: SHUP (Footstep)
Minato: "Er... I'm not actually sure if it has or not...
For I died and was sealed away much earlier than the third Hokage."
Hashirama: "Huh?! Is that so?!
In a different incident than when I was sealed away with Sarutobi?!"
Minato: "Yes, sir... A completely separate incident..."
Hashirama: "So then who's the fifth Hokage?!"
Orochimaru: "Your granddaughter, princess Tsunade."
Is... The village okay?
SFX: GLOOOOM (Slump)
Minato: "I-is there something to be worried about...?"
Hashirama: "Well, she was my first grandchild, so I spoiled her rotten!!
In the end, she even picked up my gambling bug... Gwa hah ha ha ha!!"
Little Tsunade: HEE HEE HEE!
Suigetsu: (He's not quite... What I expected of a god of shinobi...
How do you put it... Um...)
SFX: Hashirama's laughter
Tobirama: "The Edotensei jutsu again, eh...?
I can't believe the jutsu I devised would be used so casually..."
Orochimaru: "It's really not that complex a jutsu...
However... You really shouldn't have conceived of it..."
Orochimaru: "Second Hokage... Many of your policies and the jutsu you developed ended up causing problems later down the line. Even currently..."
Tobirama: "Are you planning to attack Konoha again?!"
Hiruzen: "I took away your jutsu in exchange for my own life. Yet you still...?! Gah!!
And this time you even revived me, your former teacher, to pit me against Konoha?!!"
"Always conflict. No matter what the era, eh.
For sure... It cannot be called that great a jutsu.
Tobirama... That's why I told you that time to--"
Tobirama: "Hush, elder brother. I am trying to speak to this stripling."
Hashirama: "But I..."
Tobirama: "Shut up!"
SFX: GLOOOOM (Slump)
Suigetsu: (God of shinobi...? So not dignified...!!)
Orochimaru: "Please do not misunderstand... I don't have any more leanings in that direction.
That's why I didn't suppress your personalities, see?
There are certain circumstances at play this time...
I'm merely creating a stage for discourse per his strong desire."
Sasuke: "My name is Uchiha Sasuke.
I want to ask you Hokage some things."
"Is that really you, Sasuke?!"
Tobirama: "An Uchiha, eh...
Of course you'd stick with a scoundrel..."
Hashirama: "Tobirama, I told you to stop saying such things!!"
Tobirama: "You're too soft, elder brother."
Sasuke: "Never mind me...
Third Hokage... Why'd you make Itachi do what he did...?"
Hiruzen: "I see...
So you've learned of what happened."
...Killed Itachi to avenge the Uchiha clan..."
Sasuke: "Afterwards, I learned the truth from Tobi and Danzo...
And leaned towards swearing vengeance against Konoha.
"However, I want to hear it straight from your mouth.
Everything regarding Itachi."
Hiruzen: "So it came to that, eh..."
Hiruzen: "Not only did I have him kill his brethren... ...I also had him bear the false charge of traitor...
...and keep tabs on the Akatsuki all by himself."
Hiruzen: "From the time he was a small child, Itachi paid attention to the teachings and signs of our predecessors that one else gave heed to.
He was a sensitive child who understood our village's past and our shinobi...
And perhaps due to that, Itachi was never bound by the trappings of clan...
He was able to think ahead, about the future of shinobi... And of the village... And constantly had misgivings regarding those futures.
At all of seven years of age, he thought quite like a Hokage...
We left everything to Itachi, in his hands alone...
And he executed his missions perfectly."
Hiruzen: "He slaughtered all of his brethren, stopped a revolt... Prevented a coming war by himself...
He even infiltrated the Akatsuki as a spy to protect the village.
On the condition that I protect you within the village.
"So... It's all true..."
Tobirama: "This is all just part of the Uchiha's cursed fate. Though I can't believe they're on the brink of extinction...
So they even plotted a Coup D'etat, eh.
I'd envisioned it might come to something like that.
The rebellious elements bearing Madara's will had been smoldering."
Orochimaru: "But you're the one who drove the Uchiha to it, second Hokage... It could be said that the seeds got sown with the Uchiha police force that you created."
Orochimaru: "Those who cracked down on crime tend to be easily disliked... Plus, the more authority such a group has, the more conceited it can get.
By building the police station next too the prison under the pretext of facilitating the monitoring of criminals... ...You conspicuously shoved the Uchiha clan to the margins of the village. That helped foster the Madara adherents."
Hashirama: "Tobirama! Did I not emphasize to you over and over again not to slight the Uchiha?!"
Tobirama: "But I gave them positions that they were eminently qualified for! And I believed that even if another Madara were to emerge, he could be dealt with right away!
As you well know, elder brother... The Uchiha are..."
Tobirama: "...A clan possessed by evil...!!"
Orochimaru: "It's like Madara left a psychological scar upon you. To cause such fear of the Uchiha..."
Tobirama: "You stripling... You do not know Madara."
Sasuke: "Second Hokage... A question for you.
What is it about the Uchiha clan? What do you know?!"
Tobirama: "The Uchiha clan and our Senju clan have a long history of battling each other.
In fact, the two clans were originally enemies."
Sasuke: "I know that much...
What did you mean about the Uchiha being possessed by evil?!"
Tobirama: There used to be a thought that in contrast to the Senju clan, who based their strength in love as opposed to jutsu...
...The basis of the Uchiha clan's strength was the power of their jutsu.
However... The truth is actually different..."
Orochimaru; Suigestu: ?
Tobirama: "There is no clan that feels deeper love than the Uchiha.
And that is why the Uchiha have suppressed and sealed it away."
"What do you mean?"
Tobirama: "Once an Uchiha knows love, it's almost as if all of his or her previously checked emotions are released...
They awaked a profound love and power that exceeds even the Senju's."
Suigetsu: "But why's that a problem?
It should help things go smoothly with the Senju too... This super-strong power of love, right?"
Tobirama: "Except that it is quite problematic. This great power hides within it the possibility of going out of control."
Tobirama: "When an Uchiha who has known love then loses that deep love... ...It is replaced by an even stronger hate that changes them.
I have seen it happen quite a few times. And that's when a certain special condition emerges."
Sasuke: "Special condition...?"
Tobirama: "When an Uchiah individual writhes in agony over the loss of a great love or disappointment in himself...
...A unique chakra gets released inside his or her brain and reacts with the optic nerves, and changes appear in that person's eyes.
This is the phenomenon called the Sharingan...
The eyes that reflect the heart."
Tobirama: "The Sharingan taps into the power of that person's heart, rapidly increasing his or her strength... ...Along with the power of their hate...
There were many sensitive individuals among the Uchiha... And nearly all who were exposed to strong emotions were taken by darkness and feel to evil.
The deeper the darkness gets, the greater the ocular powers also become, until the person can no longer be stopped... Just like Madara."
Hashirama: "Madara cared intensely about his little brother... Likely even more so than your brother."
Tobirama: "I thought I had arranged and guided things such that the Uchiha's power could be harnessed to served the village.
Although... If they self-destructed for the sake of the village, then so be it.
Either way, in the end, they were of use to the village of Konoha."
Hashirama: "Tobirama, will you quite saying such thingd?! Your audience is an innocent Uchiha child!"
Tobirama: "What is all important is the village. The village is the keystone. I know you know that too, elder brother."
Sasuke: "It doesn't bother me. ...I am neither innocent nor a child..."
Tobirama: (Not the basic pattern... He's got the Mangekyo Sharingan...)
Sasuke: "First Hokage... I ask you this...
What does it mean to be a village? And what does it mean to be a shinobi?"
