Well at least he now has Itachi's power in addittion to his own, as he has said.
I am not perfect and I defy you to prove otherwise
Growing Old Gracefully is an Oxymoron ... Mostly Moron !
thats most likely highly exaggerated but ofc his power is increased from that, but i dont think that it is precise to say that he has his own and itachi's powers.
By Itachi's powers they don't mean that Sasuke+Itachi=Sasachi. But rather that he now have all the same ability's and have his eyes. I think that we will see some increased Genjutsu from from gay-boy-Sasuke, for those that think that Naruto now is on way higher lvl do to all the power ups he have been given, this might as well be what's going to tip the scale since Naruto is weak against genjutsu.
I still think that if EMS Sasuke and MS Itachi were to have a t-yomi face-off, that Itachi would still own Sasukes ass. Sasukes upgrade in MS power doesnt alter the fact that his skills are shameful compared to Itachi.
Not necessarily true as the EMS itself is considered a new eye power. It's likely that it doesn't bestow upon the user a 4th separate MS technique.Originally Posted by EliteKage
Quite possible, but I don't know if I'd be willing to call it a "huge" boost though (so far). A significant boost nonetheless though, I guessOriginally Posted by EliteKage
Just about everyone's skills are "shameful" when put next to Itachi, it seems. So that's a bad adjective to apply only to Sasuke here. I prefer to say "pales in comparison to" Itachi. Cut Sasuke just a little slack at least.Originally Posted by EliteKage
from what i can gather, there is no really HUGE power boost, i dont even think his normal MS powers will get a boost, all the EMS does compared to the MS is remove the physical restraints of the powers, meaning that he wont get blind anymore and powers like susanoo wont weaken him physically, other than that there really isnt any change, except possibly making their old MS powers more powerful.
2. In one chapter it specifically stated that a new jutsu is awakened along with the EMS, but that could be a translation problem i guess.
3. Significant, Huge, same basic idea
4. True that most pale in comparison to Itachi, but what im saying is Sasuke was never really skilled in genjutsu. The only reason he has genjutsu abilities at all is due to the sharingan. I'd like to see him use a genjutsu with his finger like Itachi.
The nature of the line itself in Japanese is ambiguous (was actually discussed on another forum) because in the Narutoverse, the Sharingan, Byakugan and Rinnegan are considered eye techniques. And in the Sharingan's case, along with being considered and eye technique, the MS itself is considered an advanced eye technique, and the 3 techniques it bestows upon the wielder (Amaterasu, Tsukuyomi, Susano) are themselves considered eye techniques. So knowing that, the newly acquired EMS is also considered as such. So, as for myself, I'm still holding back on saying that there will be yet one more technique in the same vein as Amaterasu to come about from the EMS.Originally Posted by EliteKage
Sort of. I just rather use significant as it implies a noticeable increase regardless of the magnitude.Originally Posted by EliteKage
Well, in terms of his Tsukuyomi, that certainly isn't like Itachi's. But I think most people have come to understand that, while being decent with genjutsu, it isn't his strong point. Really, it just isn't his style. Sasuke using genjutsu like Itachi? It's not gonna happen. I mean, Itachi casts genjutsu just by breathing (slight over-exaggeration maybe).Originally Posted by EliteKage
