I THINK I figured something out...A question and a theory.
Orochimaru is taking Sasuke to "The one who knows everything", Sasuke is wondering about clan and villiage loyalty, Madara is next to impossible to beat and the White Zetsu Army is still out there... This points to one thing. Orochimaru is taking Sasuke to see Hashirama Senju. Before people say he was sealed and the Edo blah blah can't revive this and that remember these clues. Orochimaru told Sasuke he was taking him somewhere he knows well, and one place that could be is the Akatsuki hideout where Hashirama's "live clone" in the tree is located. That scroll could be a jitsu to revive him. This would not be an ET revival because this thing is alive. If they can pull Orochimaru out of a clump of cells and a curse seal what could they do with a living cell body?
The Question: The "rule" with the Edo T. is you can not revive a person's spirit who have already been sealed in some way, thats why they couldnt revive the first, and Second Hokage during the world war because the 3rd had already sealed them back in the day. Well, when the 9 tails attacked the village Minato sealed himself with the 9 tails Yin chakara using the Reaper Death Seal yet when Orochimaru fought the 3rd back in the day he used E.T. to revive the 1st and 2nd hokage BUT he also started to revive the 4th Hokage but the 3rd stopped him (of course before the coffin opened because the looks would of given away he was Naruto's father too soon). How could he revive him if he was already sealed from before?
No the previous hokages souls are now with the
shikigami(death god) and not in the pure world.
Edo tensei can not revive someone whose soul is
not resting in the pure world.
possible that Oro found a way, probably has a
contract with the Shikigami and as such may be
given the souls the shikigami has in its
I don't know how or
even if Oro was able to repossess his sealed
hands. If it ends up that Oro was able to take his
sealed hands from the shikigami, then it is
possible that he can take Hashirama's soul
But I don't think this is
where Kishi will take the story.
That is true the 4ths spirit was already sealed
within the death gods stomach and Orochimaru
almost summoned him, this may be a plot whole or
an opening for exactly what CBAperson is talking
about, a way to revive the 1st. I sure hope so.
I don't think Orichimuru was reviving the 4th
Hokage at that time, the only person it could have
been was Madara, Kabuto gained most of
Orichimuru's secrets, powers and abilities,
so he had to have gained Madara's DNA from
him too even use ET to revive him. And I think
your may be right about "one of the people
who knows everthing" it has to be Hashirama
and Madara in my opinion. Whenever we get back to
Sasuke I think this will explain why Madara sent a
clone to the battlefield with Obitio, Naruto, and
gang since he had already beat the 5 Kages.
There's probably a reverse summoning scroll
that brings the new revived Madara including with
Hashirama, "remember his face on
Madara's chest", straight to the place
where Orichimuru is taking Sasuke. I think Sasuke
still has a bigger role in Madara's plan and
first Madara had to plant all these seeds just to
get him to this point, all the wars started for
the same exact reason Madara.
Hey guys have we all forgot about the timeline of
this obito/tobi.....the tobi with the long
hair....tobi who attacked 4th...and tobi that
showed his face to kisame (meaning kisame knew the
face)...and tobi who is obito............who gave
eyes to nagato...i know madara and obito both have
said that they have.....but again the timeline
doesnt add up....plus it was ridiculous that 4th
was unable to detect it was obito (if it was
obito) due his chakra and aura, given obito was
his very own student........
The one who knows everything has to be either the
so6p or hashirama....plus that makes sense that
ori has some deal or trick to do with death
god...coz he summoned the 4th, revived his hands,
and now can summon 1st.....or an alter way would
be that, it was NOT 4th who was summoned but
madarra....and now kabuto got madara dna from ori
and improved it.....and also that hashirama
summoning (if it is hashirama) will be not ET
summoning but some other way as discussed
