Hello Narutards, My name is Cesc (AKA HashiramaDaGod, akaItachiDaBaus). I am very excited to be writing this review. I have been visiting and commenting on here since 2009; I usually stay under the radar and have gone through a couple of aliases so you all probably never notice me. I have never written nor attempted to write anything like this before. All the writing I ever do is for assignments so this will be the first time I will ever write something for fun (and hopefully it won’t be the last). So let’s get started then shall we.
THE GOD OF SHINOBI!
Like every single one of you, I was pleasantly surprised that Kishi kicked off this chapter where 618 left off. How that small Uchiha shrine can contain all that Epicness is beyond me. Just look at this first page, I literally stayed on it for five minutes
The fourth great Kages are summoned and stand before the great snake king, and the emo Uchiha and his pets. Surprisingly, Suigetsu is the first to speak, referring to Mega Magnum as the God of Shinobi. Tobimara quickly realizes what is going on and expresses his disgust at the situation while the god doesn’t seem to realize what is going on (despite the fact that he had been summoned before). The third as well knew exactly what was going on as did the fourth whom seems to express some respect towards Snake King. So apparently, after having his hands taken away, Snake King spent his down time collecting scrolls, and doing research on lost clan secrets. And this is how he happened to come across the bypass to the death god seal. Meh I’ll buy it Kishi, and I suggest you all do and move on.
In this chapter, the fourth was as cool as we all expected, the third was as knowledgeable as we all know him to be, and the second wasn’t far off from what we expected. However, the First, the God of Shinobi was absolutely hilarious. I loved this guy when I had no idea what his personality was like; now that I do, I just love him even more. This guy’s personality just adds to his awesomeness in my opinion. It reminds me of certain goofy hero named Goku. He seems to have a care free attitude when it comes to the small mishaps in life, but nows how to handle shit when needed to.
Ok, let’s get serious!
Ok I did not love this chapter solely because of the awesomeness the First brought, but also because of the information and secrets levealed by Tobirama. To be honest, I did not expect Tobirama to be the talkitive type, nor one to hush his brother like that. If anything, I was expecting the first’s personality to be more like what Tobirama’s is, with a mix of compassion. The truths finally start coming out when Sasuke begins his interview with the Kages, starting with the third, Sasuke seeked final confirmation that Itachi’s story was indeed true. I was glad Sasuke asked this question, because I know it must have been very hard for him to believe even after so many pople told him. But hearing it from the third, confirms it for us for as much it does for Sasuke. Itachi was truly something special, and the Leaf should not have let him go to waste like that.
Next question was for Tobirama, and his answer reveals plenty of new info and confirms many other speculations about the Uchiha. According to Tobirama, the Uchihas are a cursed clan. They are not cursed because the fight too hard, but because they love too hard. That just confused the shit out of me. Here, for 618 chapters we have been led to believe the Uchihas are born for the fight, and now we are told they actually love and care more than the Senju. Needless to say, I loved Suigetsu’s response to this, “so what’s the beef? Can’t you guys just get along…since both clans are filled with all this lovey-dovey crap…?” Well aparently it is this strong feelings towards love and friendship that creates the problem. You see, when an Uchiha loves, they not only fall head over heel in love but get overly attached gf crazy in love (ya lame). So if you can imagine how bat sh*t crazy things will get when you break up with overly attached gf, you’ll have a small idea of how crazy sh*t gets when an Uchiha loses his love.
Tobirama realises this dark side of the Uchiha and sort to keep it in check. Even though he had the best of intentions for the village, as Snake King stated, Tobirama went about solving it the wrong way. His attempts to make things better only succeded in making them worse. He saw the danger the Uchiha’s posed to the survival of the village and so tried prevent it by isolating them. He felt Hashirama’s methods of dealing with the situation was not effective, seeing his brother as being too compasionate towards the Uchiha. To me Hashi had the right idea. If Tobirama knew that all the Uchiha’s wanted was love, then when did he treat them as such, why not love them and let them learn to love him like his brother tried to do.
Tobirama goes on to reveal further info about the Uchiha and their sharingan:
- Sharingan evolves when the Uchiha lose love, and it gets transfomed into hatred that consumes them.
- Contrary to common belief, Madara did in fact love his brother dearly.
Qquestion: (Some of you asked in the “It’s out!”).
- If the tomoes mean hatred and despair, why did Sasuke and Tobi activate theirs while trying to protect their friends?
- My best guess is that they felt as if they were losing their friends, and the love they had for said friends turned into hatred for the person trying to take them away. The Mangekyo part however is consistant with Tobirama’s statement.
- This is my question, answer if you can. Danzo mirrored Tobirama ideals, yet Tobirama chose did not choose him as Hokage, instead he went for the old man whom reflected his brother’s ideals more?
- So this wraps up my first ever review, I enjoyed doing it and I hope you guys like it. But please, give me some feed back on how I can improve.
- I know I missed some points, but you see how long this post is already?
