To me, in the latest manga Sarutobi seemed like he was close to itachi, the way Sarutobi described Itachi he seemed to have known him better than the Uchiha clan! and he really did know him better! it seemed very personal...kinda like a master and student type relationship so i gotta ask:
did Itachi learn jutsu directly from Sarutobi?
was the 3rd a secret mentor to Itachi?
and if so why would it be kept a secret?
what do you guys think?
I think 3rd hokage was Itachi's master/mentor!!!!!! if so it would explain alot about itachi.
