Well, the confirmation that the 10-tails isn't some omnipotent beast that lived beside humans, but in truth is GOD, something that created all and thus humans as well, is quite important. It is the beginning as well as the end and one of the reasons why I posted that image, since that thing had similar names to what 10-tails was called (although in it's case, it was a being between monkey and human, one that directed the course of evolution).

He does not do it like that with everyone. In this case, i repeat, he offers statement of familiarity with kakashi but immediately dissociates with gai. That is not "oh that's just tobi, He does that to everybody". That dialogue is attached to serious sequence of panels initiating a staredown. I personalty don't think tobi is obito but IM not going to deny that this chapter is is offering pieces of support to that theory using long established techniques, especially comic book/manga techniques in the artwork.

This week I think there should be another chapter related to the Naruto movie...
- Gendou Mazu is the 10 tails vessel No surprise ...
- An incomplete revival No surprise...
- Tobi's words to Kakashi made me think about the old Obito theory....lol ( still dont buy it )
- Then of course his words to Gai makes it seem like he knows a bit about them personally.
- This history of the 10 tails seems like there could be more to it...
- KB has a fetish for middle aged women's breasts lol
- The Fan seems to diffuse chakra .... I had a similar idea.
KB should use a Bijuu bomb and just hit it.
Actually something Kisame said way back may reveal something. He said there is delicate balancing order and if the tailed beasts are not sealed properly then statue will crumble.
I've spanned too much today, I'll stop but its important to keep in mind that this weeks chapter came with two translations that when compared; contain discrepancies that significantly impact two theories.
"Vessel" and "body" are not necessarily the same exact thing.
Tobi remarks in familiarity with both kakashi and gain in one translation but in the other translation his remark of familiarity with kakashi remains, even moreso intimate in tone but completely dissociates with gai in a way that half proactively confirms that tobi did have more than a walk in part during kakashi's past.
1) Tobi =\= Obito, and Tobi =\= Shisui for the same reasons.
When Tobi faught with Yondaime, Neither Obito nor Shisui would have been Old enough. The size and physical maturity does not match.
2) Tobi could be using Obito's eye. It is logical to assume that Tobi had Zetsu keeping an eye out and spying on Yondaime. If so. Akatsuki would have known about Obito's Eyes and their potential. It would be a very simple matter for Zetsu to retrieve the right eye.
3) Again I say, Tobi has no interest in reviving the Juubi along with its body. The Body would just be a nuisance. Tobi wants to become the Jinchuuriki of the 10Tails, why would he want to put it back in its body? I am going with The Geddou being a Vessel, and not the actual body.
Tsunade has that effect on people

That would be another let down after Orochimarus cheap revival.
Personally, I doubt its Obito simply bcs of the time-line - Tobi predates Obito, he was around even before Nagato was born, how else would he masterminded Nagato having rinnegan and creation of Akatsuki ?
The thing is, someone capable of freely moving through space, perhaps can even move through time as well... yep that's manga world for you ;P.

Well, I can guess another person that might fit, perhaps that person even helped Kakashi in mastering his Sharingan and thus would know both of them, but Kakashi more... yes you know who I'm referring to, the Uchiha that was in the 3rd's genin group.
Time Space jutsu? That's a way all of this could make sense. But anyway, I actually like PaulBee's theory about it just being obito's eye inside tobi, allowing him similiar space time jutsus, and also why he has "seen" kakashi before. I still say oro helped with the surgery though... just saying

I'd be mad too if I was left to rot in a cave. At first i'd think, "they'll send someone to help me soon". Then I'd start to think, "damn they not gonna even try to retrieve my corpse?". Then i'd think, "Once i get out of here i'm going to kill everyone".
