Naruto 597 Spoilers, Shonen Jump 38 Coveron August 11, 2012 at 8:25 AM
Warning: Major manga spoilers ahead
Naruto 596 has been released in Japan, and it sure was an exciting one! Kakashi figured out his Sharingan is somehow connected to Tobi’s as he was able to send his kunai and Naruto’s Rasengan to the same dimension which Tobi warped to. The question is, how are they connected?
Naruto 597 spoilers (for now call them rumors) have surfaced and well, many, of you guessed it – Tobi has Obito’s Sharingan! That doesn’t mean Tobi is Obito, for now it just means he has his Sharingan eye. Tobi mentions he picked it up after the battle at Kannabi Bridge, when Kakashi began to be known as the Copy Ninja.
Naruto 597, part of Shonen Jump magazine issue 38, will hit Japanese newsstands officially on August 20th, although web fanatics can look forward to it hitting the Internet this up-coming week. Expect a few color pages of Naruto 597 along with Shonen Jump 38′s cover featuring our favorite orange-clad ninja!
UPDATE – Sunday, August 12, 2012: With the release of Naruto 597, we can confirm Tobi hints at his Sharingan eye being Obito’s, but he does not explicitly state it. This leaves the door open as to who Tobi’s identity is. To be more exact, Kakashi asks Tobi where he got his eye from. Tobi responds during the past world war, at the fight at Kannabi Bridge, the fight where Kakashi became known as “The Hero with the Sharingan”.
