Re: My prediction.
I'm new and I've been folowing naruto for quite some time now and realy love the story and atmosphere. but this is how I recap the things that happend befor and how that affects my prediction for future chapters, I know it's a lot to read but I belive it's worth the read
major discusions are out on several aspects, SO6P, tobi being madara and how powerfull he is, naruto and sasuke's origins, has madara recoverd the rinegan, who's in that 6th coffin that kabuto summoned, the gift itachi gave to naruto and the final outcome of the manga. I'm oging to adress them all here to come to my final prediction.
this is what we know of the SO6P, he had the rinnegan, was host to the juby and had enormous amounts of chakra, he was also the first to use ninja technics. he had 2 sons, one who inhereted his body (the huge chakra I guess) and one who inhereted his eye's (it's not exactly like rinnegan but also not sharingan, it looks a bit like the swirls on naruto's vest and new seal). these sons' decendents eventualy formed the senju and uchiha clans respectivly. with the eye's evolving into the sharingan as we know it. and on his deathbed he split up the yubi to form the 9 beasts
at some point in the history Madara and Hashirama fought for the title of first hokage and it was an epic battle, since madara already had his EMS and hashirama was able to control tailed beasts like small pupies. the outcome of this battle was that hashirama became the first hokage and Madara was left mortaly wounded. in some strange way he did manage to survive but he stated himself that he lost the motherload of his power, while stil being a formidable ninja today.
when madara spoke to Naruto, he himself stated that he saw senju in Naruto, that he saw that he was a true decendent of the first hokage and the senju clan.
after sasuke defeated danzo we saw Madara at his hidout stating that it would be time to collect the rinnegan, but he was interupted by zetsu to go rescue Sasuke, so in my oppinion it is unclear if he ever did collect the rinnegan. later we see that Kabuto shows up and summons the dead Akatsuki members, including nagato, although it is unclear if the corpse of nagato still contains the rinnegan (check chapter 490 page1) I do belive it does. this is why, of all 5 corpses the eyes are blacked out, this could be that the eyelids are just closed or that the eyes are gone. we know that madara took the eyes from itachi who is also there, but I don't see why the eye's of kakuzu, deidara and sasori would be gone (perhaps sasori because he was a puppet most of his life) but I don't think that madara ever had the time to collect the rinnegan and kabuto did collect the corpse.
I think this is important for the discusion as to what eye's sasuke has now, some people think that sasuke got the rinnegan, I think it's realy itachi's eyes as he asked madara to do, and what most people here agrea to. he also stated that he felt itachi's power welling inside him so how could he if he had nagato's rinnegan. so he got itachi's eyes now and developed a EMS of his own. because of all this sasuke probably now has the potential to surpase madara if he did not already. if he is not so far then it's just a matter of time until he learns to control the EMS.
I belive that at the moment sasuke and naruto fight, sasuke will be more powerfull then madara when madara was fighting hashirama.
the gift that itachi gave naruto is in my oppinion a way to defend against genjutsu since that is naruto's greatest weaknes. he would have overcome that weakness if he was 'friends' with the ninetails but it looks like that still is not the case
my predictions are thus as folowd.
1) Naruto will easely kill kisame, perhaps with the help of KB or not and become a jinchuriki even more perfect then KB and surpass all the hokage's, even hashirama
2) sasuke will surpas and betray Madara like he did with Orochimaru when he had nothing more to learn or gain from him and kill him
and this may be a lot further in the future but I belive it is worth thinking about:
if that sixt coffin that kabuto had was the real body of madara (what I see is the only option for him to have a strong enough hand to convince madara to become alies) then I suppose he will become the bigest enemy. some might argue that madara would have to be dead to have his corpse in the coffin and yet he stands in front of it, but don't forget that he seems to be using zetu's tech to regenerate his current body, I suppose he might have done a sort of mind transfer tech simalar to orochimaru to leave his wounded body and take a new regeneratable one provided by zetsu, only transplanting the eye's.
the reason that madara would be scared of seing his own body in that coffin might be that the tech puls the soul from where it is to the body provided by the sacrefice (none of kabuto's summons moved so I asume the souls are not yet in there, the body is just prepared, and we know kabuto is good at that)
so for my final prediction:
3) I suppose Naruto and sasuke will start to fight and be interupted by kabuto at some point, he has mentiond that he wants to fight naruto again and he also hates sasuke for killing Orochimaru. and he does have great power, orochimaru's power, the 5 Akatsuki corpses and that 6th coffin what I belive to be madara (and other unseen pawns as he states aswel). the outcome of that batle will probably decide the end of the manga, as I see it, naruto and sasuke will team up temporarely to defeat kabuto but they will not do so befor sasuke is mortaly wounded. kabuto die's, sasuke turns back from his hatred just beforhe dies and naruto becomes hokage. placing sasuke's name on the memorial stone that kakashi always visits
I know it was long but I hope you can agrea with me on some points, would like to hear your reactions
