felt like i should bump this post. QFTfunny. you people reacting to kabuto's backstory is how i react to itachi in general. who the hell cares if he failed and knows who he is? who the hell cares about ANOTHER ultimate eye jutsu thats bound to make an overpowered character even more overpowered? who the hell cares about kishis attempts to make him likeable after all his horribel despicable crimes and joining of akatsuki? hes not a hero and i dont care about kishis attempts at sugarcoating torturing children and committing genocide.
here we actually got background on multiple characters, namely danzo and oro. and a little bit more info on the other villages and how danzo protected the leaf from the inside by doing all the spy jobs. so whats the problem here? kabuto's a major villain so we deserve to know his story. hell we got more on him than we got on sasori, danzo, and madara.
we will get to the fights eventually. for me it was more frustrating sitting through naruto's "i want to be friends with bijuus" crap and madara's "hashirama was so great, i love him!" most flashbacks piss me off like how they recycle the same "sasuke doesnt give a shit about naruto but we are supposed to believe they have this deep bond because both were alone" bullshit.
