early post, can't wait to check out the latest chapter :-D
nice to get an explanation...if only i understood it O_o
i got the A and A' part, but the izanagi and izanami bit lost me
^ lol .... *runs off to do the same
Edit: Nice explanation chapter! This chapter did a very good job of explaining the finer points of the last Sharingan techniques, which is going to help heaps in theories of how to beat Tobi.
Lol I really hope Kabuto ends up as Vegeta :D
That was one complex explination. Seems like Kishi has thought about this quite a bit. Anyway, it makes sense to me, at least it's concept does. Seems like this Kabuto thingy will only go on for a couple more chapters, and honestly speaking, I couldn't be happier.
Feels way too slow after a fight that was already pretty slow/dull, with mostly lecturing and flashbacks. Maybe Itachi repeated his lectures so many times to help create a lecture-loop for the Izanami. Not a bad chapter by any means, but it was just really boring considering my expectations for Kabuto's fate and Itachi's message to Sasuke.
same feelings really... it will take quiet some re-reading to fully understand what Izanami n Izanagi is..... but for most of its mechanics we figured it out rightly...!! i mean when it was activated and how it might end (Acknowledging yourself).
Itachi is way above others man..... he learned it the hard way though, all these lessons.... and perhaps is trying to save Sasuke from those hard lessons....!!
He is not talking about the massacre though.... may be we have to wait till the end or perhaps there is nothing more to know in that case :s that would be disappointing in my view
Was this whole excersise just so that Itachi could tell Sasuke that he was not perfect? And It appears Itachi used Koto Amats-something_ (Shisui's eye) to turn Sasuke into a Rogue Ninja?
Hmm, think I'll have to re-read this chapter a couple of times to really get that explanation.
It's not just Izanami and Izanagi, it's a parallell to Sasuke and Itachi as well.
I think it's a fair distinction that Kishimoto's Manga really makes you think. It not all action action action, and it's not all comedy, it uses no sex allusions or other gimmicks. I'll have to re-read this chapter a few times to fully understand what Itachi said.
Like others though, I would love to move the story forward, but at the same time I appreciate the fact that Kishi has made Sasuke's story more compelling than it first appeared to be. I'll be looking forward to reading and finding out just why exactly Itachi had to go to such lengths to try and dominate Sasuke's future.
