This chapter tells us a few things, Orochimaru apparently have no interest in the war itself, and he do still want Sasukes body
So what do you guys think: Sasuke having a massive hand in reanimating the soul of Naruto's father.
Is that it for Sasuke now? Surely no turning back from this one or do you think he may still be able to have a redemption story?
If the Four Hokage are going to become involved in the War, the Alliance now have a full throttled chance against the Juubi, Madara, and Obito.

I don't see how bringing Naruto's father is going to make him angrier and mad at Sasuke, hell, this might be even a good thing for Naruto as it was for Gara.
As for Sasuke, I honestly don't see him anymore as a dangerous person, at the moment. He seems pretty neutral at the time being and I honestly still don't understand what he's after...
But at least Sasuke is now being logical about ALL of this.
Learning the History of the Uchiha and the village from Hashirama and the other Hokage might be the best decision hes ever made, because it'll help him make a well thought out, uncorrupted decision on what to do next.
Destroy the Leaf?
Or leave it be.
But in no way do I think the Leaf will be having Sasuke among its ranks again, dead or alive.
Sidenote: I loved the symbolism between when the Time Skip began, aka Naruto standing atop the same tower Sasuke did this one, and it being bright and day from a right sided angle, and then dark and night from a left sided angle.
I'm kind of thinking Sasuke is trolling all the bad guys and at the very end he'll be like "I was working undercover for the leaf this whole time." Hell, Itachi was. If not, I'd love to see him die, XD.
It's kind of funny that he gathers a group together to help him and doesn't tell them he wants to destroy the leaf village. He only tells Obito that. Which he could have been saying what Obito wanted to hear. Then you have Sasuke just walking out of the village no problem three years ago. How does the Sound Ninja 4 walk in and then them and Sasuke just walk out? I think they were let in and out. Tsunade sends him on an infiltration mission. That's the reason she only sends the small retrieval squad instead of Anbu. So they can do just enough to stop the 4, but not Sasuke. Then Sasuke kills Orochimaru before he switches bodies, mission accomplished? Then goes after Itachi, another rogue ninja. Up untill the Kage summit, he was doing the leaf BIG favors.
But this is all just my own little theory.
Erm i missed something, i kinda jump the manga quite a bit as i prefer watching the anime. didn't orcihmaru die? I realise lots of people were reanimated but i didn't see it happen to orichmaru i don't think?
Did anyone else notice Orochimaru used the body transfer to take over a white zetsu lol? Didn't think those things made good bodies.
Probably 590s, if you consider that recent lol.
If the Hokages join the war, wouldn't that mean it would be the "first time" Minato sees Naruto?
Unless of course the memories of the Chakra imprint that was in Naruto "merged" with the just freed Minato's soul.......
Sorry for basically not looking up this myself, i don't really take in a lot of information from manga, especially since i've missed the last 100 or so episodes.
I saw the latest where the hokages get resurected. Are these going to be controlled? Are they good, bad etc? I thought orocimaru was bad? Or is he on the good side for the moment? xD
As you can see i'm not very upto date at the moment. I guess i could read the wiki.
Edit - Read up a few things but didn't really explain anything.

Orochimaru is working on his own so unknown what will happen.
Dirk123 it's possible that Orochimaru will impart Minato with his own knowledge of Naruto so Minato knows but eh you're right that Minato shouldn't know a thing about Naruto from his chakra thing. I'm sure the author will fuck it up though.
Was pretty cool talking. I mean, the Uchiha darkness thing was cliche as fuck but whatever. I wanna hear 4th speak.
