If he opens the 8th gate he is dead amirite?
for me it is just hax that guy doesnt show any drowback after opening so many gates .
I know he is training every day but still . He could just spamm the gates with no problem.
I can't fight this feeling any longer.
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow.
What started out as friendship,
Has grown stronger.
I only wish I had the strength to let it show.
When you say he opened 6/8 gates, you mean only the sixth one, right?? Cause, that i thought that was Gai's secret for lowering the side effects of opening the gates. I mean,
Lee opened from first to fifth gate (if i'm not wrong), and he ended up really screwed. While Gai opened "only the sixth" and he showed almost no counter effects.
The Afternoon Tiger was a ridiculous explosion! It was almost the size of the island itself lol, imagine in 7th gate Gai firing off a bunch of Tigers and just blowing shit up all around him haha.
But on the last attack I do believe it will be a tortoise type attack, whatever that may be, but it would be nice if he has a revive skill that involves the dragon or maybe combining all the three previous attacks into one combo attack that would be the Dragon attack?
Either way I think Gai is only unaffected by the gates is because he is used to using them while training all his years in Konoha, kinda like his body has muscle memory of it already. Im guessing since Lee only recently learned it when he used it thats why he couldn't handle it, but probably now he can use it with no problems. Can you imagine how hardcore Gai's body must be from all that use of the gates and chakra flowing through him and the strengthening he must have gone through to make his body strong enough to handle the gates?!? Hes like in constant rock-skin mode lol
A pie in the sky?
So far there hasn't been any mention as to where or who/clan etc.. started chakra gate manipulation. Gai is haled as the taijutsu specialist of Konoha, and Gai and Rock lee are the only ones who really use this for combat.
But for some reason it just seems to me this would be a great addition to Byakugan users. Most Byakugan users are taijutsu specialists anyway thanks to the Byakugan and by far have the greatest chakra control of their tenketsu(also due the byukan), which incidentally the chakra gates control the chakra flow to the tenketsu. It sure would be great to see what the Byakugan users can do with the chakra gates.
Yhe I too think that the gates would be a great trade for the byakugan users, tho saying that it's chakra isen't wrong nor right I think. It's as simple as this, Lee can't use chakra but Gai can, the only place where they actually say that it's chakra or comment on the use of chakra in while using this technic is when Gai uses it and I think this only count's for Gai and not Lee.
When it comes too the side effects and the difference in Gai and Lee, there is nothing but logic on Gai having less trouble with them than Lee, for reasons mentioned on what happens and the requirements for releasing the gates, but I also agree that the side effects that Gai gets after releasing so many gates is to low and that he should have more problems recouping after the fight. Tho seeing how he is more fit than lee in all ways(maybe not speed) it should actually not be that to effect, also remember that int eh fight Lee had with Gaara he had never used(or rarely used) the technique, and since I don't remember if he had used it before he had never opened so many gates before nor used it in fight.
