Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 605 Discussion and 606 Predictions
No, it's obviously not. You can still see trees and the moon; Kamui's dimension is completely made of cubes.

The excessive cruelty and Obito's clear thoughts during his wild, simulataneous screams perfectly underlined how much he actually was in a frantic, trance-like bloodrush. It strongly reminded of Nagato's bloodrush-state that occured when Yahiko died; I think he even screamed the same, painful way. Most of all, it was necessary for delivering Obito's emotions of rage; Kishimoto did a great job, here.

Now for the things I noticed and the questions that raised up; there are quite a lot.
- Obito wasn't just growing branches from bis body, but also Chakra rods; the ones that Nagato and the Gedo Mazo were able to grow or 'produce'. I'm convinced that there's a greater meaning behind it, which is also connected to the relation between Senju, Uchiha and the Rinnegan. Nagato, or rather Pain, had the Rinnegan, which many people assume to occur when Uchiha and Senju or rather Uzumaki genes are mixed. Since Obito doesn't have Uzumaki genes and Nagato on the other hand doesn't have actual Senju genes, but both used those rods, it can be assumed that Uzumaki & Senju genes are similar. If that was true, it'd be proof for the Mazo being made of Mokuton/Hashirama's genes; since it has a combination of Sharingan and Rinnegan hidden under the blindfold, it would meet the requirements to create the rods in that case.
- Once more, the title of Anbu was disgraced. Back in the old parts, Jounin and especially Anbu were displayed to have a certain level of intelligence and calmity; these days, however, they seem to be ordinary idiots wielding a sword and screaming not to underestimate their village. They rushed into Obito without any actual strategy and could not grasp the idea of him being intangible before seeing it thrice. Of course, that can be creditet to the very fact that Obito was alone and they were underestimating him; but those are mistakes Anbu shouldn't do, they're supposed to be absoulute elite. Of course, before a union of Mokuton and Kamui even Anbu don't stand much chances; I just wish they had given him some more on-screen resistance. Seemingly they did off-screen, otherwise the fight wouldn't have lasted until it was dark.
- They were interested in Rin's body; that's most likely the reason Kakashi killed her, to stop them from taking whatever was inside Rins body. But if it was about mere genes like Senju or Uzumaki, it actually shouldn't matter if the person's alive or dead. Furthermore, Rin seemed surprised; maybe that very something was something even she was unaware of.
- Obito. He awakened his Mangekyou Sharingan without actually killing Rin. Was it due to the traumatical effect of watching it, or because Kakashi awoke it and their eyes are connected? The latter seems more likely, seeing how they transformed simultaneously. Also, why couldn't Kakashi use his Mangekyou Sharingan for all that time? Maybe he really didn't notice it and had to watch Itachi activating his in order to uncover it.. but that just seems so unlikely.

So, that's it for now. Again, this was a great chapter. Obito now sees that this very reality is hell itself; just what Madara wanted. What happens next isn't hard to predict. However, I still think that even this very situation is not enough for Obtio to undergo such a drastical change of heart. Most likely Madara will talk into him now; I'm in general interested in what influence Madara really had on that incident.
