    I felt this chapter, in itself, was very well presented. The way it all came about gave a nice sort of sorrowful conclusion to a tragic relationship.

    That aside, I felt in retrospect the whole encounter seems like a major waste. I really don't see how this is going to progress the story or how it adds to either character. So Itachi is dead, he won the battle only to loose the war and Sasuke is denied his revenge but has been freed from the burden of Orochimaru. In itself that has a sort of cool irony to it but at the same time it really kills a lot of potential, as far as the story goes. To me it seems that all those revelations were just to inform the audience and the battle only really served the purpose of separating Orochimaru from Sasuke. It came across as being a big fuss with a weak conclusion, I was hoping for this battle to have a major impact on the future of the series but now it seems virtually insignificant. So Orochimaru has been separated from Sasuke and Sasuke now knows about Madara and why Itachi left him alive, killed the clan, etc, big deal. I was glad to see the hint that Orochimaru appears to have escaped, god knows this series needs at least one villain who has some longevity. Though, I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if he ends up just tracking down Kabuto and takes full control destroying the potential of yet another interesting character.

    I hope the ambiguous question at the end of the chapter means there is something more to all this. I can think of some simple explanations for why this happened, I just don't find them satisfying.

    That could be what he said just to take the piss, cos if i was Sasuke and i was plaining to kill my brother after all this years with my own hands, weapon or jutsu and he just dies with me not being the one to give him the final blow but his own jutsu i would be pissed off. I just like the part were it shows Sasuke walking back with sweat dripping down his face because he's scared, shows that deep down he's still a pu$$y and not the god everyone thinks he is.

    remember a few chapters ago Sasuke said something like "you didn't think i would come here to kill you without preparing first?"

    --few days before--
    Sasuke is writing in the Death Note

    "Uchiha Itachi, fights Uchiha Sasuke, tries to take Uchiha Sasuke's eyes and pokes him on the forehead instead, then dies of a heart attack."

    ----------------------------------

    edit: just replace "Uchiha Sasuke" with "his brother" above. For the sake of avoiding confusion, I'm not gonna change the sentence directly.

    but yeah, the poke was really quite symbolic, and it hints that there may be more to what we saw than just Itachi trying to take Sasuke's eyes. Then again, it could also be that he fell forward a little and his hand touched Sasuke's forhead unintentionally, and ironically just like he used to.

    but like I said, this is perhaps the best ending possible to the battle (the other being Sasuke getting his eyes taken out). Sasuke doesn't get revenge, but Itachi still dies. Itachi wins the battle, but fails to get the eyes. Everyone wins (or in this case, loses).

    ^whoops. then I'll just edit it to read "his brother" instead of Sasuke. I REALLY need to brush up on those rules..

    anyways, isn't that what lots of people wanted?
