Things to Draw from Today's Chapter
With our recent chapter, we have gained a small bit of interesting information.
1. The Hokage have seemingly split up.
Now this is an early assumption, but it is possible Minato (and maybee Hiruzen) have gone to the battlefield while the others have gone to assist the defeated Kage. This will likely get Hashirama in a fighting mood, and make a good way to allow the Kage to get to the battlefield in a timely manner (Tobirama's possible manipulation of FTG Slash).
2. Minato's role will likely be defense.
With the Space-Time Barrier's usefulness, this likely means instead of fighting Obito or Madara, Minato will likely be staving off TBB strikes, or possibly re-directing Gyuki and Kurama's to attack the Juubi.
3. Naruto apparantly already sensed their presence (and thus was possibly stalling for time)
This would be a good reason for why instead of making a heavy influence on attacks, he's for the most part concentrated on keeping the others safe. Also...not freaking out when dad saves the day !
4. The evolutions of the Juubi should be susceptible to Fire Style Pokemon.
