    So Susanoo is actually the armor itself, that is a relief, I guess my worries about this concept were unwarranted. Judging by Itachi's 2 blind eyes it looks like Susanoo is a Mangekyou ability and at the last minute Itachi used it creating this impenetrable armor. I had my doubts about Susanoo being a taijutsu but now that seems to be likely considering the look of it and the fact that Itachi implies that its more than just a shield. I don't really see how the battle could go much farther now though but I am guessing Orochimaru will factor in to what happens next. Sasuke's left eye now looks like Orochimaru's so I am sure there is some significance to that.

    Overall this chapter definitely exceeded my expectations, hopefully the conclusion will be cool. Itachi seems to be blind now but he looks to be doing pretty good otherwise back to being calm and in control. I am not going to call a victory for anyone yet though especially since this has been so back and forth.

    That was a good chapter.

    Susanoo being the armor.

    Itachi still got it, and even going blind to do that.
    I feels a little bit good seeing Sasuke screams out of frustration.

    Well, that snake eye shadow that appeared in one of Sasukeīs eyes has to mean something...

    People donīt seem to realize that heīs using the CS *alot* and nothing good will come out of that.

    About the chapter, it was pretty good, better than i expected, if anything it was good to see Sasuke getting false hope of victory just to be crumbled by Itachiīs calm demeanor.

    It looks like Itachi's MS eyes are destroyed. So if Sasuke wins, does that mean Itachi's eyes are worthless to him?

    Also, why didn't Itachi just take Sasuke's sharingan eyes instead of putting him in Tsukiyomi during the first part of the manga when he pwns him? It's not like Sasuke's sharingan really got upgraded since that time, unless you count the third dot. Also, didn't Madara's brother have MS also before he took them?

    Couldn't he of just taken another Uchiha's fully matured sharingan eyes when he and Madara destroyed the clan? Surely there was somebody else in the clan that had sharingan. Why would he pick a fight with a bad ass mofo like Sasuke for just regular sharingan? Wouldn't it be easier and more beneficial to just kill Kakashi and take his MS? His whole master plan seems to be taking Sasuke's eyes, but it just doesn't seem that well thought out to me, unless I'm missing something or Sasuke really does have MS and I don't know about it.

    I agree with Whatapyro as well on this one. It does worry me a bit though because if Orochimaru does pop out, it will resemble the Kyuubi trump card moment that Naruto had way back in the day...meaning complete annihilation (in most cases) of his enemies. Plot-wise, Sasuke -and- Orochimaru would have succeeded in killing Itachi then...yay for them. I can't get over the feeling that Itachi's comeuppance came a bit too 'easy'. I just suck like that :P

    This opens up a whole new look to the 'Year of Sasuke'...perhaps now it will be a struggle to overcome the Oro in him as well as carry on his hunt for Madara...or Itachi and Madara if the loser decides to interrupt the fight and carry Itachi off. More than likely though...he may just kill Itachi because he's useless now, forcing Sasuke to take an indirect revenge on the killer of his clan's killer.

    Awesome chapter all around.

    Isnt he supposed to get the eyes of his brother in order to have his MS turn permanent? meaning, not just anyone from the clan can be taken, got to be his blood brother. thought it was explained already before.

    as for why itachi didnt take sasuke's eyes, well, he was hoping that sasuke would eventualy gain magenkyo sharingan. and his eye sight wasnt as bad as what it is now, so he could afford not taking sasuke's eyes then.

    The armor is still very unclear, I also think that this already is Susanoo.
    Sasuke is very strong now with Kirin, that one jutsu i d expect from Pain.
    No idea why he didnt use this against Deidara tho, it would have saved him loads of trouble.
    When Sasuke fought Deidara he didn't seem to think he would need this attack once he found out his chidori could neutralize Deidara's bombs. Kirin is quite likely the "other option" he spoke of but if he didn't see the need for it why use it? Also I think this really comes down to keeping his greatest attack hidden, if an opponent knows what moves to expect they can come up with a plan to deal with it in advance. As we have seen in the Naruto world you never know who may be watching, even though the attack might have been able to kill Deidara right off the bat Akatsuki would have likely learned about it and thus Sasuke would loose the element of surprise next time he faced one of them potential costing him his advantage.

    Considering Itachi now seems to be blind, impling that he used the Mangekyou again, I am nearly certain that Susanoo is the armor. Also he says "Behold (look upon) the last weapon in my arsenal, Susanoo." If Susanoo were a move that he had yet to use he probably would have worded that statement differently.

    This chapter, if nothing else, showed off some cool new techniques on both sides. Sasuke's fabled ultimate technique, Kirin, didn't disappoint. I can totally see how that move could have taken out all of Team 7 when they faced him at Orochimaru's hideout. Itachi's Susanoo also seems worthy, to counter such a powerful attack is a feat in and of itself now lets how he uses it from here. I could see it having a lot of potential as a method of attack as well. If the skeletal form has full limbs that can be used to attack it would not only serve as protection and increase damage through the flames but also significantly lengthen his reach as well.

    I must say with Itachi now blind and Sasuke out of chakra it would be funny if the next chapter consisted of Sasuke spinning on his heel and running away while Itachi is talking.

    Kakashi took a sharingan from his buddy and he wasn't even an uchiha; no blood relation. Worst comes to worst, he could still always just kill kakashi and put a single MS in his eye socket the regular way. MS seems so costly that collecting and storing spare sharingans seems to be the way to go.

    ^
    1) Sasukes eyes are incredibly strong compared to obitos, Itachi knows this because he has the same blood and even Madara knows that sasukes eyes are better than itachis. Yes he could have left some other uchiha alive and snagged their eyes, but the eyes he took would be weaker than his.
    2) What Kakashi did wasnt what Madara did. Although we dont know specifically how, its not as if Madara simply plucked out one of his own eyes and put his brothers in, we can tell this based on how his new eye has both sharingan designs merged.
    3) Kakashis eye is deteriorating, and likely at a faster pace considering how its an unnatural thing, taking the eye may give him sight, but its highly unlikely it will do the same thing in giving him permanent sight.
    4) If it were as easy as taking any random uchihas eyes, Madara would have grabbed Itachis eyes the second he gained MS and put it in his other socket to gain ultimate power or some such nonsense.

    The idea of Mandra coming in and killing Itachi now, right in front of Sasuke, would be sweet as hell. All that work for nothing! Good thinking SamDaPsy. The "year of Sasuke" would take a pretty interesting twist.
