    Why did oro wait so long to get his arms back?

    seems like he could have gotten them back at any point during the time skip. And he also could have revived the 4 hokages. why didn't he?

    Re: Why did oro wait so long to get his arms back?

    Possibly because the place he needed to go to get the mask was located in Konoha, and he was a wanted S rank criminal. He may not have been able to successfully do it if too many people were around.

    Not only that but because he could only use his body transfer jutsu every three years, he'd have no way of escaping the death god. He did a body transfer into a zetsu which saved his life in this weeks manga.

    the only thing i can think of is that he needed to get to the uchiha shrine to perform the ceremony, but since the attack on konoha the security was air tight. but now that there is no security right now because everyone is at war, there was access

    although really, he should have been trying to transfer to get his arms back before transferring into sasuke. whatever that's not really a big plot hole

    He was most likely too sick to go alone and do it himself, and before he could even do so, Sasuke killed him.

    Re: Why did oro wait so long to get his arms back?

    I believe it the location to use the reverse jutsu death reaper seal could only be done in Naka shrine.He needed sasuke to use the jutsu inorder to remove the sealed stone for them to proceed with plan

    To keep Orochimaru underrated, and blow our minds whenever he does something.

    Kishi's geniousness is your answer

    He was too sick and probably needed to do it in Konoha.

    Plot devices and two Orochimaru could gotten his arms back after his fight with 3rd hokage, instead of going to Tsunade.
