Well, we know Kabuto was in the area during the Pain fight (Anko/Yamato were searching for him in the forests around the time Naruto went 6-tails). It's possible he collected some DNA from Nagato's nearby hideout after the fight. The guy was hacking up blood for like 15 chapters.
Kabuto also made an appearance right before the Sasuke/Itachi fight, in the woods while Naruto & Co. were searching for Itachi. It's possible he visited Sasuke/Itachi's battlefield afterwards. Same deal, Itachi coughed up like six gallons of blood, and that's not counting the tears of blood or the cut to his leg.
1) Kishimoto contradicting himself with this new definition of EDO Tensei
2) This a Translational artifact
3) This ET with DNA is Kabuto's Version of ET
What do you guys say?
I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise
Growing Old Gracefully is an Oxymoron ... Mostly Moron !
I personally dont think getting the DNA was as complicated as everyone is making it seem. When Naruto was fighting Nagato (real body). Nagato was bleeding from the mouth, thats DNA right there. Diedora might have blown hisself up, but that doesnt mean all of his body was incinerated. When I think of something or someone exploding I imagine chunks of them flying everywhere. We see Kabuto was able to reincarnate Manda with just a few cells.
Beware of the Kyubii
Stev3child - The biggest pussy of them all is rokudaime sennin though. If he was a real man, he wouldn't have relied on hax god-given powers to seal the Jyubi. He would have suplexed that bitch and ripped each tail from the beast one by one with his bare hands.
This reminds me of Dragonball Z, remember the red army was collecting DNA from all strong warriors using fly drones. Kabuto or Orochimaru must have collected DNA samples in similar ways. You just need DNA to reconstruct flesh... look at Manda and the First Hokage.
Once they have the right amount of flesh, they could now use it for Edo Tensie.
Kabuto is such an enigmatic character. What's his real goal? his origin? His motives? I'm sure there will be a set of chapters dealing about him. Is he really an antagonist? Or is he the 'Gin' of Naruto?
