Re: "AO" What is capable of
the sharingan allowed kakashi to predict his opponents counterattacks, not see his enemies, if you go back to the kakashi gaiden he was already able to sense where the enemy was without sharingan, his lack of sharingan however left him open to counterattack which is why minato was forced to save him.
and is just me or does it seem logical that tobi would not tell the kage's that byakugan can read from the tablet as well. i mean konoha possesses every single known byakugan user but one, ao, giving them a number of people who could read from the tablet. and isnt the tablet how madara and izuna found out about mangekyou? (i dont recall if thats been said in the manga its just a guess) so i believe that if the byakugan can read from the tablet there are most likely secrets related to it that would allow it to advance to another leve, however that is just speculation.
and about the origin of the byakugan, why couldnt byakugan and sharingan have come from the so6p son. he could have had two kids, one birthed with sharingan and the other byakugan??
and curtain messiah, we have barely seen the byakugan throughout the whole manga, and we have seen the sharingan most of the time, so of course we are not going to have witnessed a byakugan user doing a lot of what you stated. i mean why did the cloud ninja try to steal hinata instead of a sharingan user??? the manga has already stated that kumo is a militaristic village seeking power so why try to acquire byakugan instead of sharingan??? and i dont think it was a matter of hyuga being weaker than uchiha thereby makin it easier to steal because hiashi still whooped on that kumo-nins ass
