Re: Tobi was never meant to Obito
Very basic. It's 7am and I haven't slept yet.
- In a story you'll have an idea, usually there's a beginning/middle/end but often when you start, you may not even have that. A manga series is a beast of information. You may have general ideas and concepts about where you'd like to end up, but you don't know everything or how to get there.
1 6 9 12 100- End
- Now since you don't know every single solitary piece of information from the get go, you make it up along the way.
- The story/characters will begin to go in different directions you never even conceived in the beginning. - Do you think Kishi thought of all this from the 1st issue?
- When that happens, what you conceived of originally in the past, may no longer be the best way to go or even relevant anymore.
- Now you have a choice to make: Do you proceed forward as the story has unfolded, or do you force it to go back in the other direction. That's a personal choice. Jabba the Hutt was originally just a fat guy, they changed him for the better of the story. Han Solo was a originally a weird Lizard man.
I'm not going to go on and on about this, but to not even acknowledge that there's a possibility he changed his mind along the way is just plain ignorant.
