Re: Naruto Manga 510 Spoilers / Summaries
What an extraordinary spoiler! That certainly revealed some new, very interesting things. Nagato a member of the Uzumaki clan, definitely an intriguing twist, but then everyone is, of course, going to ask, what is his relation to Naruto Uzumaki? We'll just have to wait and see.
And from the looks of it, Madara has defeated Konan. So much for everyone's theories that "Madara is a weak villain" and "he will surely flee this fight." Now that we know he has the perfect Izanagi in his arsenal, he's practically unbeatable. And it also turns out that Madara did not challenge Hashirama Senju for control of Konoha, it was in fact to gain Hashirama's powers for the ability to use Izanagi. Did he purposely lose for an oppurtunity to gain the First Hokage's powers? We will have to wait to see as well.
Also, seeing as how Madara has the ability to use Izanagi, I wonder whether he used the same genjutsu when fighting Minato. The reason I think so is because Minato freed Madara's control of the fox in chapter 503, yet considering that Madara also said in chapter 478 one needs both the powers of Uchiha and Hashirama to control the Nine-Tails (which he has), he could have used the technique at a certain point, and does, perhaps, still have the ability to control the Nine-Tailed Fox, which as we all know is an important object of Madara's attention in the series.
And if there is any doubt at all about Tobi not being Madara Uchiha, it should be completely erased now. No other Uchiha in the series (this includes Obito as well) has Hashirama's powers except for Madara himself, thus meaning that if the masked man is not Madara, he does not have the First's power, cannot use Izanagi, resulting in a very large contradiction of the story. In the spoilers as well, he clearly states that he is Madara Uchiha. I hope this will dissipate any further doubt on the character of Madara.
But once again, regardless, a wonderful spoiler. Kishimoto clearly knows how to keep his fans guessing, and give his readers the most interesting of plot twists known in the world of manga.
