So let's stop this cherry picking and look at things logically.
On the contrary, I never said anything was confirmed. You're just getting bent out of shape because it was brought up. My exact words were, "And the Obito troll train just keeps on going." It was a reference to my first sentence pertaining to the chapter last week, "Let the trolling Obito campaign begin."
After all this time? If I were suggesting Obito was confirmed as Tobi, there'd be some bragging, gloating, and mocking. Nah, that's just a nod to the fact that Kishi isn't stupid. He's fully aware of what he's doing with this having still kept the revelation of Kakashi's method to obtain MS, Tobi verbally dismissing Kakashi's attempt to use Kamui before it activated, the suggestion of a personal relationship between Tobi/Kakashi/Guy, and now this. Regardless of how he reveals Tobi to be, seems like he's having some fun trolling with the Obito theory.
Also, Preta Path chakra absorption requires contact, either physical or through the barrier.
Souls =/= Chakra
Yeah, just a canopy and a tentacle. Not really the same as absorbing the chakra from a jutsu, is it? We've seen it fight twice and it's never absorbed the chakra from a jutsu or a person on its own. Granted, that doesn't mean that it can't, but I'm taking things as that it can either.
