THIS IS AN ANIME ONLY DISCUSSION POST. DO NOT DISCUSS THE MANGA BEYOND THIS EPISODE.
----------------------------------------
Amazing episode
I think this showed us how powerful tobi really is.
Also at the end there seeing his new mask was awesome!

The fight between Tobi and Konan was done really great. Though the end was kind of sloppy in terms of animation and the preview looked nice! Looks like fillers are not a threat any more.

Tobi looking badass!

I really loved this episode and was a bit sad because I had my hopes for potential relationship between Konan and Naruto. That would be a good pair of two people who deserve and respect each other.

Can't stand how much this show retreads material. It's like I'm watching a soap opera or something.

Most of the tracks were off this episode....
Animation of the paper sucked, especially since the amazing CGI of last ep.
The fight was good though, the end was nice.
Not a perfect way to end this good arc.
And we shall begin the new lame arc :(

I knew the outcome since I had read the manga, but I'm still wondering three things..

1.)Isn't Konan(paper) like Suigetsu(water) in being resistant to physical damage due to being made of *insert element already mentioned*? Shouldn't stabbing her, like Madara did, not work? Or at the very least, shouldn't she have been able to turn to paper to escape?

2.)Why didn't Madara at least try to use his Susano's?

3.)Madara took Nagato.. Were Tendo Pein's eyes not good enough?

Please avoid giving me tl;dr answers.

Besides that, good ep. I hope they change the opening soon.

1) and 2) I'm guessing maybe they used too much chakra?
I mean Konan was almost collapsing after the huge paper bomb explosion.
As for Madara he seemed to be struggling too, even with his other eye.
This is all just a guess though, probably better answers out there though >~<

3) LOL, lazy? xD I really have no idea. I didn't think about this though aha

And yes, please change the opening, it is time!

..LOL at the frog costumes in the flash back, way too distracting with the plot, I was giggling at them looking all ridiculously cute.

and finally looking forward to the ninja war, bring it on~

I've always assumed that the different paths just copied the the Rinnegan off the original, in this case Nagato, and so when Nagato stops controlling a body they lose the Rinnegan leaving Nagato's the only set that could be taken.

1) le plot holes all over the place?
2) I don't think

3) You mean Yahiko? He doesn't have the Rinnegan, when Nagato uses it, all eyes of the paths that are controlled take the shape of the original(Nagato)'s eyes.
Same when people whose bodies are manipulated by the Sharingan

1.) Konan stated in the ep that her "Sacred Paper Emissary Jutsu" had come undone from such a high chakra usage; i can only assume that jutsu is what manifests her ability to manipulate paper at such a high level.

2.) If Madara can really use a true Izanagi like he stated, then Izanagi is a much more suitable jutsu for the situation he was in compared to Susano.

3.) I'm pretty sure the only reason Tendo Pain( and the other Pains as well) had the Rinnegan is because they were being controlled by Nagato with the Six Paths jutsu, basically just being copies of the true Rinnegan and once the jutsu was released they disappeared.

Konan used a very good tactic but Madara still managed to evade it.
It's almost like Madara is immortal like there is nothing that can kill him yet he does seem to have a few weaknesses.
Which he seems fully aware of.

I liked the Episode. A Fight taking 2 only 2 episodes is rare in Naruto lol... but, it was a good one. Konan was a strong opponent but, not strong enough ;) Good to see an opponent doing 'simulation' before actually fighting lol. Not everyone in there is just going head on in fights.

I liked the Flash Back with Konan and her friend but, could have been shorter. The Toad disguise were a huge WTF O.o'

1) Hum... The Surprise ? I mean. She seemed very surprise he could reach her like that and hit her.
2) Like Bskbob said; He doesn't have it.
3) There was nothing he could actually want from them. His goal was Nagato from the Start. He's the real holder of the Rinnegan no one else really matter.

What I am wondering is... How does he intend to use the Rinnegan... I mean. He already got 2 very powerful eyes. The Left one being the Sharingan. The Right one being another Sharingan but... that one is just for one particular jutsu and is blind. I don't think he's going to give up on either so... what with the 3rd eyes ?...

Gonna 'create' a new eye cavity between the two ? lol WTF Horrible

Good episode. I liked these chapters in the manga and the anime transition didn't disappoint me. Good thing that they decided to cut on the overly exaggerated flash-backs on this one.

The only thing that kind of bothered me is that when Tobi completed Konan's sentence with "...Dead?" he revlead himself in a rather "dull manner" which killed the surprise element. When reading the manga it gave you more of a shock effect by being more sudden, but I guess that it didn't work with the perspective they decided to use in the anime. Meh, this is just me being picky.

Anyways...5/5 for me.

He just used Izanagi, doesn't that mean he has the Mangekyou?
Even his sucking jutsu is mangekyou-related

The only requirements to use Izanagi are having a Sharingan eye and Senju's DNA.

It's so sad that Konan is gone. She was really great..

Madara's face looks weird but cool.

It is absolutely a sin to be an anime fan and not at least experience "Akira" once in your life time.
