Ok it seems that evry1 has been wondering which techniques came first lately sharingan or byakugan.
it dose make sense y byakugan wud have come first especially wen kakashi made it out to be so great
I wud have thought with all the advance things the byakugan can do the hyuga would have been 1 of the strongest clans along with uchiha and senju.
it also seemed funny that itachi didnt just take like a squad of hyuga clan members to help him out instead of finding madara. and i dont think he sought out madara so he cud truly master the MS sharingan im sure it wouldve been mentioned if that was one of the reasons.
so were wer the hyuga hiding up until now well wat i thought was after the uchiha clan annihilation konoha wouldve been i a weak state so they needed a replacement clan with just as advance dojutsu. and thats were the hyuga come in im not completley sure how but wat i think is that after uchiha bit the dust konoha created some secret experiments in order to creat a even more advance or as strong dojutsu to replace the sharingan.
and all the secrets that the hyuga are trying to protect so badly is the way they came about it wud make sense 4 them to try so hard to protect how thier byakugan came about if it was through some experiments it wud proberbly disgrace thier clan or sumthin. and this leads me to think only the elders of the hyugas main brach the first members to be used as test mice 4 this new dojutsu techniques wud no about all these things.im sure the konoha elders and danzou and maybe the 3rd wud have been invovled aswell.
My only stumbling block is that y wud people think hyuga hav been round so long if they only came about after the uchiha clan saw the light.
my guess is people just keep quite about it i mean the new generation aka naruto and gang had no clue about the hyuga.
