Sasuke with the help from his brother Itachi are now going at it against the snake man himself, Kabuto. Yes, the two who we never thought would fight on the same team are fighting against the one who we never thought would have so much power. If I went back in time and told myself this was going to happen, I probably wouldn’t believe myself. But here we are... Let’s find out who will be victorious.
This chapter seemed rather short. Instead of attacking them physically, Kabuto tries to separate the brothers due to their weak alliance. Kabuto gives Sasuke the usual bad guy speech--we are fighting for the same reasons, we are not too different ourselves, we both have the same end goals. However, as we all know, Sasuke has his own reasons, and really sticks to his guns no matter what anyone says.
Itachi then has to say something, so he agrees with Kabuto that the leaf has its own faults, but he is still a leaf ninja and will die (again) a leaf ninja. However, he wants to tell Sasuke something, but he can’t until Kabuto is taking care of, so if Sasuke wants to hear this secret, then they better get busy. Itachi then tells Sasuke that there is another power they can use to help them in this situation, the power of izanami. I can only imagine how broken that power is.
Short chapter is short, and I feel that they could have cut out a lot from this chapter, making it a little more action oriented.
THE VERDICT 2/5
I’m excited to see this new move, but I suspect it will force Itachi to loose his eyesight because of it. I hope this battle will be concluded in the next chapter, or that something crazy will happen, like Sasuke loosing his head, or Naruto appearing out of nowhere to help Sasuke.
