I think Sauske has no chance. My pet theory is that the cursed seal will compromise him at a critcal instant. I remember it once being described (i dont remember where) as a preperation for a body that Orochimaru intends to inhabit. It would make total sense to me that using the cursed seal is the key that opens your body to possesion. It seemed that Oro needed the last host's consent before taking his body. It makes sense to me that the cursed seal would be a more advanced form of possesion where the person's descision to accept power from Oro is the devil's deal that opens them up for serpentine body snatching.

Hm...... Maybe but I doubt it. I mean, Kabuto once offered to allow Orochimaru to use his body but he doesn't have a Cursed Seal (as far as we've seen), which is actually kind of odd, now that I think about it. Orochimaru's most loyal servant without his branding? And besides, I don't remember seeing the mark on the sacrifice Orochimaru last used. It's a possibility but not a very likely one. With the whole flashback thing, this does seem like it means some kind of loss for Orochimaru. Thinking back on the whole Sasori incident, it happened pretty much the same way although I do hope Orochimaru doesn't die completely. I, like many others, have seen him as the main antagonist. Akatsuki is more like the threat that will bring both sides together. They are slowly losing their pizazz as the badass evil Organization they were at the beginning of the Time Jump. Itachi and Kisame still seem badass to me and the Leader is holding his own only because we have yet to see him in action but as for the rest of the group....... They're slowly lowering the standards for S-rank Ninja's. Or maybe the standards were way too high to begin with. I mean, Zabuza was S-rank and he was not all that brilliant. I think any one of the Akatsuki members could have taken him out, alone. Maybe, just as with all other ranks, there are levels within S-rank of strong or weak.
Back on topic, how damn far did Kabuto get when he left Orochimaru because I would have thought him to be there by now! Orochimaru revealing his "true form" in a fight where Sasuke is doing things that not even Orochimaru knew he knew is definately tipping in Sasuke's favor, which sucks. I want to know how being a giant white snake is supposed to be a positive result from some experiment. I mean, I hope it has something to do with some kind of jutsu's (even though he doesn't have any hands!) because I thought that was all Orochimaru experimented on. I don't think the look is all that bad but if the only thing it's there for is flashback purposes and to make Orochimaru look more "snake-like and menacing" (which I thought he had downpacked already) then that sucks. The fight should have dragged on a bit more before Orochimaru revealed all his cards even though, as he said, he still has the curse seal. Which brings up another point; why the hell would Sasuke use the seal if he knows Orochimaru could and would be able to use it??? More contradictions......

orochimaru can't use the curse seal if he gets killed first

I hope Sasuke kill him very fast without those damm flashback.
better yet.. kill him in one panel instead of chapters.

Im glad to see that there is still some good left in Sasuke. His words proves that he's still a hater of pointless killing. He's regained some of my respect.

All signs point to the death of orochimaru. And with the lack of a central main villain, it seems the AL should be revealed quite soon...
@hFreeman, nothing about what sasuke is doing is good. Orochimaru may be evil but sasuke isnt killing him for that, hes merely testing his skills and simultaneously ridding himself of the only threat around him.
I like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends

@R3dKnight:maybe not one panel but one chapter is enough for that filthy orochimaru
no need for flashback for an evil like him.but don't you think sasuke and orochimaru is similar in their wat of thinking?Both of them are idiot...
