New Commentator: Kuro Luffy
Hey guys my good friend Kuro Luffy is gonna sporadically write for Yup Man about anime trends and the latest news as well as his own paradigm shifting insights.
===SPOILER ALERT: Naruto manga references ahead!!===
We've warned you. The rest is after the jump.
Hey Naruto-Fans!! Or should I say Naru-tards!
This is Kuro Luffy and today I want to address something that I’ve begun to think about after reading the latest chapter of Naruto by the one and only Masashi Kishimoto! And that something is…<epic suspenseful music>…!!!
IS UCHIHA MADARA REALLY THE SHINOBI ONCE KNOWN AS TOBI?!?!?
Alot of you must be thinking “Of course he is! DUH! Every character in Naruto must have said his name at least once! And he even admitted to being Madara like a ba-zillion times!”
Yes, this may be all true and it probably is. But let’s check out one other possibility that, if true, may blow all our minds away!!!
What if <super epic suspenseful music> Tobi was actually Uchiha Obito! That’s right! Uchiha Obito, Kakashi’s childhood friend who gave his Sharingan to Kakashi right before his crushing death.
Let’s look at some potential evidence to why Obito could possibly be Tobi’s true identity!
Exhibit A: This manga strip was released in the latest chapter of Naruto, finally revealing a part of Tobi’s face! The hair and the eyes look strikingly similar to that of Obito, no?
Exhibit B: Have you ever wondered why Tobi has only one eye-hole in his mask? It’s kinda weird, but we accept it cause it looks cool. BUT! Is it just a coincidence that the eye covered behind the mask is his left eye which just happens to be the same eye that Kakashi has the Sharingan in?!?!?!
Now before all of you go “WHOA!!! WHAT JUST HAPPENED—Kuro you’re SO SMART! AND HANDSOME!”, which I know you’re dying to do. There are 2 potential flaws with this idea:
1) Why would Obito suddenly go crazy (assuming he did survive some how) and try to take revenge on well – the world.
2) It isn’t clear but from the timeline (and from what I remember), Tobi may have appeared in front of Yahiko, Nagato and Konan before Obito’s death (but this is totally debatable =P).
Alright my fellow Naru-tards! Just something to thing about ^-^ Feel free to leave your thoughts in the comments below and tell me who you think Tobi really is!
Till next time,
