And don't know if it's canon or not, but did anyone notice that on the first page with the old Obito and young Obito, that Iruka had the scar on his nose in the young picture. Funny how that scar didn't happen until the attack of the kyuubi on Konoha.
true you are correct but I am sure the pages purpose was most likely to show the growth of Obito's generation..not only that but all of who was apart of his era. The path they took that brought them to where they are now in the manga...totally correct though.....
