Like damn you kishi for not having the foresight when first creating the manga that you'd ultimitely butcher the series by introducing ritualistic powerups for the Uchiha. A ton of shit was retconed since the Naruto Bridge arc yet you want to complain about that?
Since Kakashi not using MS can be brushed off as him not knowing he had it or how to use it properly, I don't even bother with that retcon. The only thing bothering me is when exactly Kishi did write down this flashback. I thought he'd have the idea when he made Kakashi Gaiden, but the atrocious writing is of late Part II. I have the feeling this flashback wasn't his original idea and got scrapped as of late and got replaced by this debacle.
