Typical do a Uchiha fangirl. But if I said "itachi can beat anyone in a second with genjutsu because its impossible to counter and Itachi has magic moon rock powers" you'll understand that.
And this my dear friend,.. is a huge DING DONG!
Please look @ the picture in my post above and be honest; if Minato even looked INTO Itachi's direction like that, he would be having a hard time standing on his feets.. and the weapons attached on Itachi's Susanoo, isn't FREE, as you call it. Itachi himself made his Susanoo to be one of the most offensive / defensive jutsu in Naruto Manga.
And again; you do know that we're talking about Minato facing Itachi, without even knowing something of eachother, right? When they faces eachother with killer instict ( same situation like Tobi - Minato ), then it would be very deadly for Minato for even stare into his direction, like he did against Madara. Minato CAN'T WIN against Itachi with only speed :S:S:S
Imagine Raikage facing Itachi, with the same attitude ? Raikage wouldn't be talking hot shot like he did against Sasuke. Remember that Itachi is a fckin diffirent level then baby Sasuke.. Just like Madara did against Minato, Raikage looked to Sasuke's face many times and that would be enough for Itachi for finishing a match, even if he was prepared or not. Yes, he was prepared to fight a " Sharingan user " , but you can never prepare yourself with such an attitude if you're facing Itachi Uchiha.
Isn't it enough proof that a boy at age of 8, had fully control over his sharingan? A boy at age of 13, became ANBU ROOT CAPTAIN, murdered one of the strongest, feared clan in Naruto Manga + made the most badass villain feared for not making a move against Konoha + Sasuke? Madara waited soo long for going further with his plan, all because Itachi was alive. Itachi being Kage material at age of 13??
You're talking about Itachi, like he's a regular sharingan user :S He's " THE GENIUS " of the latest sharingan bloodline, so yea; Minato won't defeat Itachi with only speed.
You guys still going on about this Minato vs Itachi crap my goodness let it go already they both dead.
BTW I think almost every character in Naruto sucks. Especially the Uchiha.
That's the difference, Minato is 100% alive!!! In my heart :)
as for the reason why minato was called yellow flash: it could be either or both
i'm just glad we all came to the conclusion that itachi would win against minato, heh.. :D
