The new chapter is to be here soon.
So some trustable spoilers have appeeared.
Madara’s pretty much done with his story. And most of it is stuff people would have guessed. No real surprise and nothing worth noting.
For more details, spoilers, pictures and thoughts…
Summary: (Translated by stream @ NF)
Itachi entered Anbu as a spy, but as he leaked information to the village side, he was a double spy
Because Itachi experienced a war when he was 4, he thought that the stability of the village came first
So he had no choice but obliterating the clan
The Third tried to compromise, but there was no time before that night
Becoming a missing-nin was also his instructions
But Itachi made one mistake
He didn’t kill his brother
He asked the Third to protect Sasuke, threatened Danzou to lay off Sasuke, and left.
It seems that from the beginning, Itachi intended to die and leave his powers to Sasuke
The one who came up with this strategy was probably Danzou. That’s why, before leaving the village, he told Danzou that if he laid a finger on Sasuke, he would tell other countries about this, and they would destroy Konoha
As for Madara, far from leading the revenge, he gave the condition that they would be anihilated (NOT sure about this sentence)
The leader of the coup d’état was Sasuke’s father
That’s about it
Yeah, basically confirms everyone’s thoughts that Itachi was good and all that. Everything does seem very unrealistic though. At least Naruto’s villians all have reasonings to doing stuff now… Sort of? As in Madara hates Konoha even more because of the whole clan kill thing.
I just don’t get where all those other Akatsuki members (Pein and stuff) fit in with the whole revenge on Konoha thing. Itachi went to become a missing-nin with Akatsuki, which was founded by Pein to take over the world… But then Pein was really working for Tobi/Madara…? So what now?
And once again, where is team Hebi?!
Blah, next time.
