What do you think?
I made this MORE readable ....
With the new manga coming out and thinking about sasuke's question about the village, here is what I think. In Manga
it's mentioned that no shinobi village was made up of clans ,but pretty much each clan had their own village.
I believe Hashirama made allied forces with the Uzumaki clan to help aid in the war with the uchiha clan since the Uzumaki clan is a distant relatives of the senju. My prediction is that in the peek of the war the uchiha decided to attack the eddy village. If the uchiha were going to use tailed beasts they would have to eliminate any possible threats, right?
The Uzumaki clan were feared because of the power of their sealing techniques. The reason why I think that is in Kushina mentions that her village is long gone and IN THAT ERA OF WAR. Im guessing she was chosen at birth and brought to the hidden leaf shortly before her village was destroyed. Hashirama wanted peace and decided to merge together with the uchiha to have real peace so other villages wouldn't be able to higher them as assassins against each other.
With the new information in the manga, could it be that since madara respected Hashirama so much that he hated him? But i believe was the last straw for madara was when hashirama was selected as the first hokage, thats when all that hate came out.
Looking back on the valley of the end in . Kakashi mentions that their lives are similar. My guess is that madara didn't want to acknowledge Hashirama as equals and all madara wanted was power. Hashirama wanted peace so everyone would live together but madara wouldnt have it. What do you guys think?
