Maybe orochimaru didnt use full power of the shodai and nidaime vs. sarutobi because he knew they would try to overpower him.
Even Hanzo resisted , not to mention Zabuza and they had Anko's chakra infused on ET...
And why Orochimaru would want just now Hashirama's cells if he planted it on Danzo long before?!
The Village is a fortress against evil and a crucible to forge, prepare, and raise Ninjas who will be the warriors in the battle against evil. The Primary purpose of the Village is to protect the "King" (Asuma and Shikamaru's King), who are the future generations.
Notice how Hashirama kept saying "The World is always at war", in exasperation.
Will The Four Hokage's really be released to join the fight?
We see in this chapter the difference in power between Hashirama (laid back Goku-esque), and Tobirama (assertive, brash Vegeta-like). Hashirama calmly broke free of Oro's restraint. He probably could free the other Kages too. If Tobirama were un-restrained, he'd surely free them from Edo-Tensei.
At this point it has become impossible to guess how the Manga will proceed, but I really want to see Minato with Naruto again.
Rather, I think it was that The Edo Tensei that Oro used last time wasn't as complete a jutsu as the current one. Remember that Kabuto said he'd perfected ET, also remember that when Oro took his chakra from Kabuto he was able to see Kabuto's memories. I think what happened was that the ET performed by Oro the first time was unable to fully replicate Hashirama and Tobirama like this one can.

Currently, Oro is inhabiting a Zetsu, which was grown by Madara from Plant and Hashirama's cells. I'd say that the Zetsu's are better copies of Hashirama than what Danzo had.
Thinking about it, Oro may well be immortal now that he has a Zetsu body, and he could manufacture more Zetsu clones from the one he currently has if he were to need more in the future.
The last few chapters have been great! Really showcasing why I enjoy Naruto so much! Still, I keep expecting more from Minato. Oh well, that might just be the fanboy in me!
Personally i think that the Naruto vs Sasuke fight, will be the last thing to happen in the manga, in a friendly environment, like the fight that Goku and Vegeta wanted in the DBZ ending, due to the fact that alot of things are revolving around Sasuke's redemption and to put the end at the Uchiha "curse".

About the chapter itself, I liked it, although few things advanced, it was nice to see more about the relationship of the kage brothers, and Minatos sensor abilities, cant wait for the chapters when they enter the battlefield.
Next week we will begin to know the truth about the VOTE battle, also a big expectation.
man the 1st is pretty beast, anybody besides me laughing at suigetsu, lol
No Plot hole at all.

● I wonder, is it possible for Minato to use his speed and try something on Orochimaru ? I guess this depends wheter he needs his special kunais for the body flicker or not. If not then I would say he could possibly take Orochimaru by surprise and make some jutsu similiar to the one he performed on Tobi, when he ended his summoning contract, that would end his binding spell.
● Anyway, I think that it was also Tobirama that made such a strong chakra "pressure". Obviously the cracked walls and cieling was Hashiramas doing but I noticed that the wooden floor near Tobirama got skewed just as he pulled his fingers ? I think Tobirama started concetrating chakra in his fingers for a jutsu, even that much was enough to crush the floor behind him. In the end, they are BOTH 100% senju so I guess they should have very similiar chakra capacities, with Hashirama having 1 extra level more then Tobirama.
This chapter further makes me question, how did these two uber-kages die? Tobirama was about to f#ck Saskue up...lmao. He was all like, "what'd you just say about the village?" Is it me or did Saskue actually seem concerned?
Like someone else said, Oro should be content now. He has an artificial body that wont age and can heal wounds. For all intents and purposes, Oro should be immortal now (unless he gets sealed again).
Hashirama showed why he is the "god of shinobi" without even attacking. I want to see Tobirama fight soooo bad, he seems like a beast. However, beastly as he may be, Hashi flexed on him. I loved it and the over the shoulder glare from Hashi was priceless.
Did suigetsu start turning to water because of Tobirama's chakra. Seeing as how Tobirama has an affinity for water. What if the 2nd could make him drown in his own fluids.
Sarutboi and Minato seem out classed standing next to the other 2.
In the Image of Madara vs Hashiram battle,
Seems Hashirama's wood Dragon Swallowed The Kyuubi's BB, then Turned it around and used it JUST Like a Rassengan against Madara's Susanoo.
^^ So, in reality Hashirama was the first person to use a rassengan.
Minato = Hashirama's mini-me
