• Kakashi as Kage doesn't bother me in the slightest. In fact, I expected it. However, that is because I would assume Naruto would rather not be Hokage yet, thinking it too stifling to a young man who likes to be really active and involved. Kakashi as Kage gives Naruto a chance to matrue and be mentored into the position. It also give him someone to fall back on in case things go wrong, as Kakashi's quite a bit younger than Tsunade. Yet none of this scenario is even hinted at in the manga. As Nate said, instead of Karachi stepping up to help his student make the transition, it is implied that Kakashi is doing it in Obito's stead. And I hate that as readers we're forced to accept Obito's redemption over and over again, when he is the biggest, most horrendous villain of the series. He directly caused the deaths of so many people, in such horrible ways and for such personal reasons, that he puts Kaguya, the puppet-villain, to shame.
Bolded: The funny thing about this is is that Obito didn't feel he deserved redemption. He didn't do thing because he wanted redemption, he did things because he didn't want to die a monster. He felt he didn't deserve to be happy or rewarded in anyway. Which to me, kind of speaks more than people really look in to.
This is counter to Sasuke's redemption who never wanted, never tried to make up for it at all, and got everything on a silver platter. At least Obito did SOME good in his final moments.
That last line though..."He directly caused the deaths of so many people, in such horrible ways and for such personal reasons, that he puts Kaguya, the puppet-villain, to shame. " I think Kishimoto beats Obito on that one.
