i would have to say that tsyukomi is great, tho it has a great side effect. they cannot keep focusing tsyukomi for more then a few seconds. altho within those few seconds the user who is trap in it can feel like eternity.
Itachi is a great man, and i am sure to defeat his enemies he wouldnt have the need to go into MS.
ok so no way to avoid the technique, but that doesnt mean it cant be broken
btw, your threads are pretty awesome to read.
It was stated that Tsyukomi CANNOT be broken... By a Non Sharingan user.
Even Kakashi, with one Sharingan, and his experience, was helpless against it.
Sasuke deflected it, with some help from the Cursed Seal.
But I think it's impossible once caught, to break it, unless you are another Sharingan user.
Wait wait: If it was used on Orochimaru, wouldn't he then be able to regenerate from it using the white snake powers?
Just a question.. *Goes to investigate*
Base Sharingan Genjutsu, a Jin could use their Biiju to help them escape, much like Killerbee did with Sasuke.
But with Tsyukomi, it's different.
Since it happens in a second, there would be no time for the Jin to use his Biiju. It would just happen and it'd be over.
