This is getting ridiculous
I hate to be Johnny Raincloud here, but this is getting rediculous.
Of course, a genius like Kishi is able to make the storyline work. But as far as I am concerned, he hasn't just been pushing it, he really sent it over the edge.
- Tobi is Obito, who miraculously survived the destruction of half of his body, half of his body consists of white Zetsu, who himself is a low-quality clone of Hashirama, who has been harnessed of a few cells Madara stole from Hashirama during their fight. On top of it, part of Obito's character clearly is influenced by Swirl-Zetsu (or whatever you might call him). That's what I call a strange setup.
- Obito's character-change was triggered by the death of a class-mate. They were not married, they had no children, they didn't even kiss. If it were so easy, I should also be trying to make the moon catch you all in a dream... I know, I know, Kakashi killed poor Rin, and Obito was right on time to witness exactly that. But that doesn't make it any better.
- Madara implanted Hashirama cells, Zetsu is also just a clone, Black Zetsu was virtually created out of nothing (I don't buy the "he is my will"-story), Madara's will is a robot (Black Zetsu always looked like a robot to me), Nagato never had his own Rinnegan-eyes,... Pretty much DNA-manipulation, if you ask me. Well, at least we know that Kabuto's and Orochimaru's DNA-manipulation looks petty compared to what Madara and Obito have been doing. Anyway, the whole you just have to believe in yourself-crap has been rendered pointless by now. All you need is Hashirama-cells. My wish: Don't let Naruto receive Hashirama's DNA to make him stronger. Please don't, Kishi.
I will play along the storyline and will never again point to this strange storyline-setup. Naruto still is a great Manga, but I really have the impression Kishi invented Tobi before he himself knew, who will be behind the mask. And then he made this up to make the story coherent.
Just what I really don't get is: Why did White Zetsu improve when he received Yamato's cells? Shouldn't it be the other way around, Yamato improves be getting Zetsu's cells.
And how could Sasuke destroy the original White Zetsu, if there is more than just one?
Since some of you are true geniuses when it comes to predictions - I wouldn't have foreseen any of this: Do you see any possibility that Yamato is a Senju/Uzumaki? It would make sense, since he is the only Non-Uchiha compatible to Hashirama's DNA.
My prediction: Obito's eyes only work when they are together, and they will rejoin during the current fight. Kakashi will tell Tobi why he had no choice but to kill Rin, and Obito will understand, feel sorry for having started World War IV, be redeemed (I can see why Paulbee is pissed because of all the redemptions), and Madara will be the next villain.
