Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 598 Discussion and 599 Predictions
For all those about to state Tobi is Obito... Tobi is not Obito.
It is impossible for Tobi to be Obito. Firstly, it does not fit the timeline!
The proof lays within the episodes and chapters themself.
if you look back to the chapter/Episode in which Minato fights Tobi, kakashi, Asuma Kurenai and Gai appear to be teenagers, Itachi appears to be incredibly young but Tobi appears to be significantly older than they are and that fight is about 3 maybe 4 years after the 3rd ninja war making Kakashi 16/17, so Obito would have been around the same age.
When Tobis mask falls off, when he speaks to Sasuke, we see exactly how old he looks although we don't get a glimpse of his entire face to confirm his actual identify.
Finally, when Tobi fights Konan, he states he was the one who gave the Rinnegan to Nagato anyway and he was simply collecting what was originally his. Now correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm sure Jiraya trained Nagato, Yukio and Konan, way before obito was even born as he met them after his fight with Hanzo in the Second ninja war. Minato Kakashi and Rin and Obito all fought in the 3rd ninja war, so theres no plausable way for Tobi to be Obito without some form of body control jutsu.
