Heh, I was one of the people riding the fence back then. The resemblance was too uncanny for there not to be some link there, but I didn't want to come out and just say it lol. Adopted the wait and see attitude until it was finally set in stone. And Karin's situation is about the same. Kishi's left himself some plot room for her if he wants to go the "family origins" root with her. So I'll adopt the wait and see attitude for her as well unless more info pops up on her (by way of Ibiki interrogation).
