I was just curious as to what many of you think about Soke's leaving out 3 of the 9 lineages in this book. As far as I can tell there is no mention of the 3 following schools: Gikan Ryu Koppojutsu; Gyokushin Ninjutsu; Kumogakure Ryu Ninjutsu. Maybe we might see another disappearing act similar to Fujita Seiko's Wada-ha?

I think it's entirely possible. Let's face it, how many of us think we've done well enough with the 6 ryu-ha we've got so far and can handle a few more? He may think the world isn't ready for those 3, and just let them die off.

Or he may have decided to handle those ryu totally ninja-like and entrusted them to someone who will keep them secret. :)

2 main thots: it's his ryu, I'm happy with what he's opened up to the world so far, so I've got no complaints.

2nd: I get enough motivation for training just by looking at what he's already shown. I still don't think I've truly understood Gyokko Ryu and Koto ryu. I might freak out if the mystery 3 are officially part of the syllabus and grading requirements! :)
