As lame as that sounds, I think you might be close to the truth.
There I thought Oro turned into some kind of bijuu...
But as it turns out, he lived to get pawned another day. By big brother, no less... Such a bad entrance, and a bad exit.
Wait! I got it now... Kishi's pulling off a Bleach thing...
With the burden of Oro now gone, Sasuke can now go... RELEASE THE LIMIT!!!

Well, that and also maintaining mythologic consistency, since Susanoo the god defeated Yamata no Orochi with Tohsaka no tsurugi and took his Kusanagi sword after that.Originally Posted by dubol

I agree with the idea that now Sasuke has a bit of chakra from letting go of Orochimaru that he can use to fight Itachi with now, as lame as that is.
Or, the point of bringing Orochimaru back and having him die so fast was to show that Itachi still rocked balls and could kick the shit out of Sasuke any time he wanted to.
That was a little weird...Orochimaru got two separate anti-climactic deaths. Now that I've thought about it, I kind of like it. It almost seems like a parody of Naruto's earlier habit of having his ass saved by the kyubi. A monster of incredible power erupts when it seems like all hope is lost and wham! it doesn't do any good. Pretty funny.
I'm no Sasuke hater, but I hope he really does lose his eye this time. All the people who bitched about Sasuke becoming too strong are probably laughing their asses off. It seems like the point was to explicitly show how screwed Sasuke is. Even the long-shot Oro ressurection couldn't save him.
I think Sasuke will squeek by with a win and get the mangekyo. Then Naruto will get the other half of the kyubi chakra and there will be a huge fight between super powered characters. That sounds disturbingly like DBZ so I hope I'm wrong.
Firstly did Itachi release the sword from what looks to be a small gourd?
Secondly is it just me or does Sasuke look a bit like jiraiya with his hair like that?
I don't think sasuke purposely let orochimaru out just so he could use whatever chakra was holding him back, nah i dont think thats it.
Right before he's released, Sasuke is like slappin his shoulder or whatever. So even then, he was trying to hold him back. He should be absolutely depleted of chakra now.
