Naruto 393 – Itachi is DEAD! Sasuke had taken his revenge!
Posted March 15, 2008on:
The chapter begins with Itachi telling Sasuke that his eyes belong to him now, and that he would take them slowly as he wanted to savor that moment.
All of a sudden, Itachi coughed out blood and Sasuke took advantage of the situation and threw kunais at him. However, they were deflected by Susanoo. Itachi began to walk towards Sasuke and Sasuke took out a scroll and summoned lots of kunais with explosive tags on them and he aimed them all at Itachi. Still, it was a futile attempt.
Zetsu explained that that shield was another supernatural item and it’s called Yata’s Mirror. It’s basically a shield that can deflect any physical attacks. Combined with the Sword of Totsuka for offense, Itachi’s completely invincible.
Sasuke made one last attempt to kill Itachi using his sword. Still, it was useless and he was driven to a corner and had nowhere to run. Itachi was about to pluck off his eyes when SUDDENLY, he had no strength left and he just fell to the ground. Sasuke had won the fight, by sheer luck.
Susanoo sure carries lots of risk…
Sasuke took advantage of the situation.
Not once but twice
But he failed in all attempts.
Having nowhere to run…
His eyes were about to be taken by his brother…
When all of a sudden…
Itachi just dropped dead.
Oh my, I REALLY hate this conclusion to the Uchiha brothers’ fight. The ending was predictable – Sasuke will not die since he’s one of the main characters. Itachi would be the one to die or better still, both will survive. So the ending is that Itachi died. It’s not that I hate this ending, but the way this is shown is really shitty.
Itachi was SO close in achieving his aim when all of a sudden, due to intense fatigue or the side-effects of Susanoo, he simply dropped dead. I’d expected the ending to be much cooler, like Sasuke defeating Itachi with a cool new technique he formulated himself. Well, we’ve seen that with Kirin but it had disappointed us. Now, Sasuke is declared the winner just because Itachi can’t carry on. This is SO UNCOOL AND SO UNFAIR TO ITACHI.
Well, I hope the next fight between Tobi and the Konoha ninjas would not be as shitty as this. Also, I hope Masashi won’t show Kisame’s fight first. That’s the last fight which I would want to see…
So Akatsuki is left with Tobi, Pain, Konan, Zetsu, and Kisame. I suppose Naruto will end very soon with the main antagonists dropping dead one after another at such a rapid rate…
