Yes, I got really excited when I saw that these two officially met, and then I realized that the most likely outcome was that these two would just talk, and that is exactly what happened. I don’t blame them, if I saw a dead person who had a very big effect on my life, I too would ask it a couple of questions. Despite Sasuke’s desperate pleas for Itachi to stop and talk, Itachi decides to keep pushing forward, for he is a very busy man with very little time on his hands. The best part about this discussion is that Itachi tells Sasuke frankly that he is not going down the path he created for his brother; basically that Sasuke is insane.
Things are heating up back in the Madara fight. After finding out that Tsunade was a descendent of Senju, he tells the group that she will be the first to fall. Here he basically insults her for being weak and for being a woman. She basically agrees, but tells him that her power comes from the Will of Fire, which didn’t do much to help Asuma out. It was a very good speech, hell it gave me some goose bumps.
A lot of flashbacks in this chapter with Sasuke, which isn’t too bad, but I felt they could have cut them down a tad bit.
THE VERDICT 3/5
So Itachi isn’t going to stop, so I’m sure both Sasuke and Itachi will them come across Kabuto and they will fight. I’m also sure here Kabuto will tell Sasuke how Tobi lied to him, and thus force Sasuke to attack Tobi, which will bring him to Naruto.
