@321zigzag1: Yes, of course, I did not imply that the correlations between the PTS and the TS were completely off, since you'd wonder if he's aware of what a contradiction is, which would basically make one of his statements lose their value if you would like.
FRS failed, that's what I said, but I claimed cho rasengan, which was my fault, but nevertheless I did not make a mistakes, since he, naruto, never actually killed one of the dogs, but instead, the dogs split and multiplied...
Character statement shouldn't be taken into consideration, considering that we know amaterasu does not have cutting properties, nor was the hachibi engulfed in its flames for while, so the obvious chances of him losing his tail to the amateraasu are way off given the amount of proof that we have; Amaterasu does not have cutting properties. Hachibi cut its own tail in order to escape without signaling to sasuke that he is carrying the fake one, and not the genuine one. It was later revealed that Killer B faked his capture... Considering that amaterasu didn't cut karin, should be enough proof...
Besides, which zigzag is this? I know two zigzags?
Hence why I was talking about focused and nonfocused ones, its the best I can do to try to reconcile it and it does work somewhat in the midst of inconsistencies and that Kishimoto usually sucks at using it.
If you want a better example in Part 2. Itachi's focused amaterasu burned Sasuke's CS2 wing. While left alone ones just burned tree tops. And cursed seal enhances durability.
And yes Amaterasu eliminated the dogs which FRS didn't beforehand. Ironic too that KCM Naruto didn't even react to it, he seemed surprised when they appeared there.
You would be right except he didn't his limbs were "cut off". He said "loss".
Well there is no reason for Hachibi to lie to Killer Bee and we did see Hachibi screaming in pain from Amaterasu (focused by Sasuke) and we did see Sasuke cut only one tail off. That cut off tail was likely the one used to escape. We never say other tails cut off.
Also he said "loss of limbs". Loss is a broad term so. And if you know bijuu durability, their tails are the least durable part.
Sasuke cutting a tail. 3rd Raikage cutting off all Hachibi tails with his finger. BM Naruto Kyuubi losing tails first when tanking Juubi 1st form beam.
Tails. Tails. Tails. Tails. Tails.
And yes Amaterasu lacks cutting but because Hachibi said loss not cut its possible the focused amaterasu burned some of his limbs off and that bijuu tails are less durable for lolkishi reasons.
there are two zigzags? well I did know a dupe called 321zagzig but that was years ago.
Genjutsu and Susanoo are gonna be Itachi's means he'll have to rely on to get past Renji. I believe Renji's faster here (not enough to blitz Itachi, but fast enough to make things difficult for the Uchiha) and has advantage in most attributes for this match. Itachi would have to plan carefully with his abilities and end things quickly since his stamina is not too good thanks to his health. A well-aimed genjutsu or use of Sword of Totsuka would give Itachi victory, though I'm still giving advantage for Renji in this match.
I believe MS Hax overall should give Itachi better advantages over Post Time Skip Renji's superior physical stats and flight. Stamina is really the main issue here but I don't think that assuming hypothetical healthy itachi like for a fight that usually ends within less than half an hour likely in manga at max, I don't think its a big issue. Sick version I agree with you although Erasercannon's tsukiyomi comment comes in for me.
