Well we found that Obito grew up like Naruto. He didn't know his parents, which really kind of threw me for a loop when you consider he still has an entire clan to bond with. Also his relationship with Rin was shown to be much deeper then some one-sided crush, with Rin never really knowing that he existed because she was into Kakashi, which is what I thought it was, similiar to Naruto and Sakura. So I will ask...
- To what extent has your opinion changed of Obito now that we have recieved more information about his background and his realtionship with Rin?
- All the bad story telling issues aside, in what ways does it make more sense to you that he turned to the darkside when you consider his life, relationships, dreams, and the close knit bond he had with Rin, If your opinion of him changed at all?
- Whether you feel the same or you find yourself shifting, give some legitament reasons why.
As for my opinion. IF he really did grow up like Naruto, which is still hard to believe for me, then I would compare his relationship with Rin to the one Naruto had with Iruka. It was intitally the only bond he had, and it meant a lot to him. I would also push and say that it contained a small essance of Naruto's relationship with Sasuke in it, solely because of the strength of the twos' understanding of one another. Not to mention that it makes a lot more sense considering that Rin is a girl and Sasuke is a boy.
With that said, when she died, I can see why he snapped in a way. The only bond he had at the time vanished, and to add insult to injury, he saw it happen with Kakashi, arguably the only other person he was JUST truly putting his trust into, being the one to kill her. Sure, given time, I think Obito would have come to terms with it all. However, with Madara whispering into his ear during such a vulnerable and traumatized state, I'm not suprised that the boy was pushed over the edge.
Oh I can not stress this enough, avoid lowly bashing and simple-minded namecalling. We are all intelligent people here.
