Hokages might not join the war, plz don't keep your hopes up.
So i have been thinking this for a while, and i have this gut feeling that hokages might not join the war.
Nbers are getting excited about hashi vs madara , minato + naruto combo, hiruzen's hype , tobi's S/T but it is possible hokages don't even join the war.
i have proof to my above statement (well kinda) :
Point one : Neji's death AND Shikaku and other people's Death would be for nothing, if hokages joined the war.
Look, shikaku betted his life on this plan to defeat the juubi.
Neji sacrificed his life to give time to naruto.
If hokage joined the war their sacrifice would appeared to be pointless, and i would feel more trolled.
Point Two : Hokages were meant to join the war anyway.
Oro says he have no interest in the war.
The kages are revived far away from the battle location.
Their purpose is to tell sasuke about everything and maybe a new power up for sasuke.
Maybe they reveal a secret which would shock not just sasuke but the readers too. (we are currently expecting sasuke to know something he doesn't know but we already know as readers , such as truth behind kyuubi attack and uchiha massacre ..)
Point Three : if hokages joined the war, The power-up alliance got from naruto would be useless, and would serve no purpose at all which wouldn't make sense, kishi doesn't give useless powerups .
Point Four : Konoha 10 got the power up, its their time to shine.
After getting powerup, Naruto and alliance are already over powering the villains.
If hokages joined, it would be over kill.
We saw lee's super fast kick , look at madara's reaction, madara couldn't even see it coming.
So in short, if hokages joined the war, the whole point of alliance , their sacrifices and hard work, would suddenly mean nothing.
The hokages did their work in the past, in this war, its the time for the new heroes to born.
So i am sorry my friends, plz don't keep your hopes up, hokages aren't gonna join the war.
