the chapter was great.... especially at the end.... Kabuto sarrounding them with sound 4 n Kimimaru and then Oro was awesome... but you know i think that is clear indication of the end of Kabuto like it or not.... and i don't know why noone talked about it but didn't Itachi used his Tsukuyomi? and by the looks of it he used it on Oro's snake form coming from the stomach of Kabuto...!! i say this is over for Kabuto...!! and yup its seems pretty obvious that Itachi's right eye is gone and not by Kabuto's ripping attack... it can easily be judged if one observe Itachi's paper scattering effect but dark eye hole...!!
so i am 99.9% sure next week Kabuto is wrapped up..!! but one can never count Kishi out!! can we?
What was the point of the sound activated genjutsu and what were the effects exactly? Did it simply immobilize Itachi and Sasuke? They could communicate with one another and cast jutsu, the types of actions genjutsu (or so I thought) was supposed to control or prevent. All I can think is that whatever angle Shisui's genjutsu works, it will always have a foothold in the subject's mind which will allow him or her to carry one the command of the genjutsu (Shisui's). If not for that, I have no idea how Itachi could simply snap out of it and snap Sasuke out of it too, unless of course we find ourselves with yet another case of nothing beats sharingan.
Or maybe it was implied they put each other in genjutsu to escape Kabuto's genjutsu while they instead both cast their genjutsu on Kabuto. Just having a hard time sorting the overlap of 3 (technically 4) genjutsus.
As I said, it's always been Kabuto's plan. Ever since he failed at easily capturing Sasuke and running, he's known that he has to take care of Itachi, and the only way to do that is to re-write Itachi's mind with another tag. Presumably he wouldn't be planning that if it wouldn't work, since he already knows exactly how Itachi broke free in the first place.
