The thing i like best in this chapter is, that it promises an end.. finally.
Very smart chapter, also. Manipulating lightning, i think, would atleast cost SOME chakra. hm.
I've always thought that the cursed seal costed chakra to maintain, since it seemed to dissapear when the person with the cursed seal got a beatdown.
But anyway, i hope that Itachi's phantom skeletal armor thing got a good explanation, because i can't seem to find one, as he was out of chakra.
Itachi still got it in him. He can use advanced MS jutsus, be beaten up, and still have chakra/strength left to summon an armor, and a final jutsu.
/end of fanboyism.
The chapter was better then I exspected. but since Sasuke used his Ace, and it didn't work, Im guesssing he will be forced into using taj-jutsu on Itachi, since it will require less chakra.
Would't the lightning just power-up Naruto's jutsu just like how Naruto's would power-up Sasuke's fire jutsu's, kinder meaning there compatible with each other no matter what way you look at it.

actually, after reading the chapter again, it does seem like susano is the armor thingy... did itachi summon it?
also, does it seem like both his eyes are blind now? normally they're all big and black right? now they have tiny pupils and are white...so i think we can say this fight will be effectively over in a chapter or two.
and i don't think sasuke gets more power from CS2 now, he's all dry...
edit: i'm not too sure if it actually powers up the element before it, i thought that was just to show that if you pit wind against fire, you'd end up making it bigger. i know that this helps sasuke, but i'm not sure if it applies with other elements.
and my problem is not that naruto can't get a boost from sasuke, it's the fact that after all the hype about naruto's new awesome jutsu, we just see sasuke pull another one out of nowhere, plus it wouldn't cost any (or maybe just a little) chakra to use (assuming there's already lightning).

^sasuke's new technique must be an answer to naruto's near-chakraless rasengan
Yeah, Itachi is pretty much, if not toally blind now. I dont think its even possible for him to activate his sharingan now. As for the battle being over, in a chap or two. dont think so, we dont even now what powers this Sunano has, if Sasuke is able to penatrate it at all....
So no one else thinks that Orochimaru is going to make an appearance?
I'm tired of there always being one last jutsu. Otherwise good chapter
wind is strong against lightning, lightning is weak against wind.
lightning is strong against earth, earth is weak against lighting.
earth is strong against water, water is weak against earth.
water is strong against fire, fire is weak against water.
fire is strong against wind, wind is weak against fire.
... and here you go again in a circle.
Dont understand how I missed that even after you pointed out the whole eye thing. It does hold together pretty well, especially since theres really no point in using curse seal when you have no chakra left. It seems to me he didnt voluntarily activate it but more lost control due to anger and he cant suppress it with chakra or force of will or whatever.
