Did anyone else find that the method Kishi used for the young Hashirama and Madara flashback was kind of strange? Most will think its not a big deal, but the way Kishi went about this flashback seems opposite of what it should be.
Specifically, the flashback seems to be oriented in Madara's perspective, not Hashirama's. By that I mean when a flashback begins, it typically starts focusing on the story teller. In this case, the flashback focuses on Madara, so logically the narrator should be Madara. Not only that, but the flashback ends with a panel of Hashirama saying some very cryptic things with narration of himself. Everyone knows that standard writing would end the flashback focused on the OTHER party in question or from the view of the narrator, but not the narrator himself. Since Hashirama ends the current flashback by saying, "That is the first time I met Madara Uchiha", then it logically should have ended with a panel of Madara saying something cryptic or revealing, to show a sense of Hashirama reacting to what he said, but not the other way around. Basically what I am saying is that this flashback in particular would seem to benefit Madara telling the story rather than Hashirama. I hope you guys understand my position here, but the reason I say this is because when we are talking about most writers, Kishi included, it seems to me that this flashback breaks the rules of typical story telling. The roles in the flashback simply seemed reversed:
I know some people will bash me and say this doesn't matter and its just Kishi's way of writing, but I want to point out that the core of this conversation and the method of writing used for the flashback seem opposite of the norm, Kishi included. Thoughts, comments, observations?
