Orochimaru, why won’t you just stay dead? It’s been a while since his death, right? because I can’t even remember how he died or the circumstances under which he was killed by Sasuke. But I do feel sorry for him when I think of how he went from being one of the Great Three of Konoha to the enemy of the entire village.
At this point, with Madara still alive and in full control over his body, it really does seem hopeless. It wouldn’t make sense for the Five Kages to suddenly pull something and beat Madara. He’s too powerful to go down that way. I’m really expecting for the Five Kages to lose or at least receive some type of reinforcement because there’s no way determination and the will to beat Madara will get them through. They could barely even put a scratch on Madara while they’re all beaten up and barely hanging on there.
Or I could be wrong and the strength of their determination will overcome all odds allowing them to create the ultimate plan to defeat Madara with just the five of them on the brink of death. It’s plausible in the world of shonen manga.
