Who in the world is Tobi?
With the Edo Tensei Jutsu just about over, Tobi decides to take things up a notch and execute his plan. His revelation that he can summon the ten tails with only a touch of the eight tails and nine tails chakra shocks all participants. Would the Infinite Tsukuyomi Genjutsu come into action right now?!
For fans of the non-malicious and malignant Nine Tailed Demon Fox, his appearance and lines are sure pleasing. If you’ve been watching the anime, then you’ll know that what Kurama explains was covered more than thoroughly in episodes 268 - 270. Essentially, he goes over how the nine tails chakra was recovered from the two legendary warriors, who ate a piece of him a long time ago and were both captured in the present time by Darui. He continues that in the end, the Masked Man gained both of their chakra.
With this information, Naruto, Bee, Kakashi, and Guy launch an assault against Tobi. What is most interesting is that it seems that Tobi knows or at least has spent signification time with Kakashi to make such a friendly comment about Kakashi’s habits. Could it be that Tobi is someone that has been involved in Kakashi’s life before? Could this be an indication that Tobi is in fact a future Sasuke that has come back in time?!
The action is back in the series, the Infinite Tsukuyomi plan is creeping into the plot, and we are given hints regarding Tobi’s identity. Summarizing this as a not-so-good chapter would be a terrible mistake. This was quite good, in all that it revealed.
