This has been on my mind for a while and I couldn't help but notice a certain pattern regarding the Mists of pandaria and the Naruto manga/anime series.
To those wo don't know what Naruto is here's a short summary:
Now back to the matters at hand.Naruto is 12 years old ninja and lives in a village called Konohagakure. Because of the villagers’ fear and loathing of the demon who resides in him, sealed by the former leader, the Fourth Hokage, Naruto is determined to become the best and the mightiest ninja in his village. More than that, he is determined to attain leadership status and win the villagers’ respect and love.
A long time ago I started a thread that there are suppose 7 Sha, because of the "Seven Burdens of Shaohao", of course it became victim to some rather stupid ideas of what the 7th missing Sha is, tho the Pride seem to make most sense; until somebody mentioned Naruto comparison.
This part will only be known to those who got exalted with Klaxxi and have completed all non-daly quests with them. After the Empress' invasion to eradicate Klaxxi and put the stop to it, Kil'ruk the Wind Reaver reveals to you the truth about Pandaria of which only the Mantid are aware:
(skip to 16:29 if you want t get to the point)
Basically, much like their cusions of Ahn'Qiraj and Azolj-Nerub, the mantid worshiped the Old God, by the Name of Y'shaarj, a beast with 7 headed heads.
And when the titans came to Azeroth to kill him, just before the end Y'shaarj released his inner shadows across pandaria, and thus the Sha were born. That does not however explain what happend to the Old God's body, because their bodies do not decay with time, nor those of their stringest servants (see the pre-cata comic series).
Now let me switch to the Naruto bit here, dealing with the events before the Naruto series begun (spoilers for those who are interested, but haven't read/watched the series):
Now let's get back to the Breath of the Darkest Shadow quest (aka last quest from 5.1 faction series). Some of you noticed when you started, mite have had a bug which showed you the incarnated Sha's (the big sources not the fragment), they may vary tho, I had Hatred and Despair on my playthrough. Than we see Ishi, Garrosh's blademaster being posessed by diferent parts of Sha as his HP decreades, like fear, anger and hatred.Long time ago in a distant past, there was a monk known as the Sage of the Six Paths, who traveled the world full of war, trying to bring peace. Until one day, a powerful Ten Tailed Demon crossed his path. Upon defeating him, in order to protect the world, the Sage locked the demon inside his body. Several years later, when the monk's like was comming to an end, in order to prevent the Ten Tailed Demon from being released upon the world once again, the Sage used his power to seperated the chakra (inner power/energy) from the demon, and from it created the 9 Tailed Beasts; while leaving the Ten Tailed Demon an empty lifeless husk, a statue, which he sealed on the Moon.
Later, 3 years after the original series, a organisation known as Akatsuki, started collection the 9 Tailed Beasts in order to ressurect the Ten Tailed Demon and unleashing him upon the world.
What am I getting at is that the way things are going and Garrosh determind to master the power of Sha, which Mogu have mastered long time ago; if he goes as far as bringing all the 6 Sha together to the place where Y'shaarj's body lies... well I'm pretty sure you see where I'm getting at.
It's called 7 burdens of Shao Hao, Y'shraaj had 7 heads, yet there are only 6 Sha, instead of 7.
There is a Ten Tailed Demon, yet there are only 9 beasts, instead of 10.
The end result is the that missing one is actually all of the links combined together.
And since we'll be seeing the unknown island where the Thunderking with Zandalari will be staging their invasion on Pandaria, is it possible that the Old God's empty husk lies there?
PLEASE no trolls or OT discussion, stick to the part
