Naruto #597 - The Secret of Space-Time Ninjutsu
In a Nutshell
Kakashi is able to deduce that his and Tobi's space-time jutsu are connected to the same dimension, explaining why the attacks he sent there were able to affect Tobi despite him being intangible at the moment. Queue "Tobi = Obito" fangirls screaming at the prospect of why these two might have connected ocular abilities.
- More insight about Tobi's abilities.
- Woo hoo, color pages!
- A mini poster with Naruto throughout the ages.
- Raises more questions than it answers.
- More monologues about Tobi's grand plan and how people suck and life is unfair and blah blah blah.
Rants and Raves
The big thing here is that it's getting hard to ignore the Tobi and Obito connection. At worst, the only argument to be made against Tobi being Obito is that Tobi somehow got Obito's eye and then started stalking Kakashi around while plotting to destroy the world, which sounds kinda stupid, although the alternative is that Obito was actually alive all was just chillin' in the cut, secretly stalking Kakashi around all of this time despite the two becoming friends before his "death". The one question that always puzzled me about the Tobito theory, why goody goody Obito turned psycho and decided to wage war against the world, was answered as well.
This chapter was a B+. Lame monologues brought it down from being a solid A for me.
