!!!Warning Major Spoiler!!! Edo Tensi weaknesses Revealed!!!
I couldnt wait for the next manga sooo i looked up spoilers and in the next issue Kabuto reveals to Madra EVERTHING about Edo Tensi. Warning stop reading now if you dont want to be "spoiled"?
Madara: That woman, it seems she is still alive
Kabuto: This woman was compatible with Orochimaru-sama’s curse seal, and has some of Orochimaru-sama’s chakra in her body. We can’t kill her yet.
Madara: That’s no good… Let’s end her life here. This woman has seen the real location of the hide-out and entrance
Kabuto: There is a need to suck Orochimaru-sama’s chakra for collection while she is alive… You can call my body Orochimaru-sama’s body, if you like… It’s necessary for me to increase my power. If I do that, the power involved in using Edo Tensei will also be stronger, and more importantly… This jutsu uses the body of live humans… That’s why I’m saying to keep this woman alive. It’s beneficial for you, too, to increase our battle power, right? Or am I wrong?
Madara: A friend today, and enemy tomorrow… Perhaps… It’s possible that something beneficial to you may turn out to be otherwise to me
Kabuto: It seems that you still do not trust me. So what must I do?
Madara: Edo Tensei… Does it really use live bodies? Explain that right here. Also, explain everything about that jutsu! Of course, that includes the way to stop it!
Kabuto glares at Madara: And if I say no?
Madara: Then you will never get what you desire, and on top of that, that which you desire will change entirely. To your own life!
Kabuto: (It’d be bad to fight the Rinnegan here… I still have a trump card… I don’t need to rush…) Fine… But there is nobody we can sacrifice here… Since you said not to use this woman
Madara uses his teleportation thingy and brings forth Fuu and Torune
Kabuto: These people are, if I remember…
Madara: Danzou’s dogs. Ever since I caught them, I’ve been using Sharingan to cast a genjutsu on them
Madara strangles Torune by the neck from behind, and kills Torune by breaking the neck (TN: Ohana is unsure if the neck was broken)
Kabuto: You have no mercy, do you…
Madara: Now, the ingredients for your jutsu are ready… Now use this one (Fuu) and use Edo Tensei to ressurect the one I just killed!
Kabuto puts Anko aside and pulls out a scroll and grabs Torune by the tail: … I’ll say this first, this is classified under Kuchiyose no Jutsu…
Kabuto stabs a kunai into Torune’s stomach: … Summoning the dead person’s soul from that world, that pure world… Into this world, this impure world (TN: remember that “edo” in Edo Tensei means “impure world”)… For this purpose, you need a portion of the human you wish to resurrect… A fixed amount of his body is required
There is blood on Kabuto’s face, it looks like he is handling Torune…
Kabuto: A portion of the body containing personal information (DNA).
Kabuto places a piece of meat on the scroll + stabs his own hand with a kunai
Kabuto: Without doing all this, you can’t use Edo Tensei. And those who are not in the pure world… That is, those whose souls are sealed into a different world, they too cannot be ressurected via Edo Tensei
Once upon a time, Orochimaru-sama tried to Edo Tensei Yondaime, but he failed. This is because he had already been sealed by Shiki Fuujin and his soul in possession of the shinigami. And… When Konoha was attacked… Sandaime Hiruzen also used the same sealing jutsu. And he brought the soul of Shodaime and Nidaime with him, so…
Madara: In other words, you’re saying that you can’t use Edo Tensei to resurrect any of the kage from Shodaime til Yondaime?
Kabuto: Yeah… I tried to ressurect a whole lot of people, though… But it’s really difficult to get hold of DNA…
Kabuto places the scroll on the ground, and the jutsu formula (TN: like alchemy circles in FMA?) appear on the ground
Kabuto: That’s equivalent to searching for a corpse, you see… If they’re all rotten, I can’t tell who they are. I made a lot of failed ones, too
Madara: This is the jutsu formula, huh…
Kabuto links his hands as Fuu who in the center of the jutsu formula begins to writhe
Kabuto: Like this, a living person becomes a container for the dead person’s soul. And with that, we have the completion of Edo Tensei
Torune lies there half-dead
Kabuto: You can even consider this jutsu the greatest and strongest jutsu in all of the Ninja world!
Torune: Th… This is!?
Kabuto: Nidaime conceptualized it, Orochimaru-sama completed it. It is the greatest inheritance left to this world!
Kabuto stabs a kunai with a tag on it into Torune’s head: This tag suppresses its character and makes it such that as long as the person is given any orders, he will have his powers from when he was alive and he will be undying, and become a pawn of mine who listens only to my orders. Of course, rare powers like the Sage of 6 path’s Rinnegan or Itachi’s sharingan are also retained… Just that… I couldn’t find Shisui’s body anywhere, and Jiraiya’s body was in the deep sea, where the water pressure is to great for a human to enter. If you want Danzou’s right eye or Sage of 6 paths Pain and the rest as weapons, first we need their DNA…
Madara: Don’t get on your high horse just yet…
Kabuto: … Well whatever… I have enough game pieces…
Madara: This jutsu is just too convenient… There must be some risk involved
Lol as you can see to all those who have been going on and on about Jairaya, the 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th hokage, they cannot be summoned. btw in the end of the manga Kabuto answers Madras question about there being a risk but thats all im not "spoiling" anymore of the manga.
I just wanted to be the first to let people know Jairaya, and the previous Hokages arent making any Guest Apperances. Sorry guys i was hoping they'd comeback too actually
