Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 525 Discussion and 526 Predictions
Omnigan, always nice when someone else sees eye to eye with my feelings and beliefs (see my most previous post)! I have a subtopic related to the six paths that I'd like to discuss...

Now going by what the narutowikia says and what the anime has shown us the 9-tails seems to be capable of using wind and fire chakra, http://naruto.wikia.com/wiki/Nine-Tailed_Demon_Fox (reading under abilities describes as much). We know that when Naruto turns into the nine-tails form he is using the 9-tails chakra. I expect another layer to Naruto using such a form is an enhancement to his wind chakra and being able to use fire chakra. This is a deadly combination, since wind breathes more life into fire! Thoughts on this, if you'd like to provide them of course!
We do differ a bit when it does come to the elemental chakra path. All of you stated is very well put, true, and makes sense, but you don't think all five elements:wind, water, fire and ying and yang (being one in the same) need to be mastered before that path is complete? It wouldn't be too far-fetched for Naruto to master all of these, because one Rinnegan is still floating around, granted it's in Tobi-Madara's possession. Just curious to see why and even if you believe only one elemental charka is needed to fulfill that path...
Farewell fellow nin!
danivass, thanks for not missing my post and replying to it! Now to elaborate on your beliefs...

I can totally understand you being a skeptic, I am much the same. I still can't believe 100% that Tobi is indeed Madara lol. Like Omnigan said earlier of So6P being referred to as a SAGE, a term used only on two humans (that we know of) and the sage frogs. In addition, he was described as a peaceful being (monk like), so being in tune with the nature around him would make sense for him. I won't repeat how much of an enhancement sage mode is and how I believe it enhanced all of the So6P's during his fight with the juubi. Perhaps the answer lies with the great toad sage on Mount Myoboku. We know how sketchy his memory is lol. He could have very well trained the So6P to use senjutsu and simply forgot as time went by. Kishi will provide the answer soon, I just hope with such large revelations, that it doesn't spell the end of the manga!
To keep it simple and clean, i believe the sealing knowledge and uzumaki chakra are one in the same and equally important for that path. Much like uchiha chakra and sharingan eyes.
I believe the biggest question that has yet to be answered, is...How Sasuke will tie into this!? With this discussion it implies that an epic showdown between two beings reminiscent of So6P (Naruto and Tobi-Madara). But I know Kishi will make Sasuke's role much larger in all of this, but what will this role be???
