yea, agreed^. And the reason he wanted sasuke to have the same eyes is so that when itachi and him fought, and he died from his sickness he could have his eyes passed to sasuke, he hints at that in the fight when he says " we are each others spare, thats the bond between uchiha brothers"
The thing i'm curious about is whether the "kill your best friend" clause is actually a requirment to have it or whether its just something that the sharingan reacts to.
Like its "heightened emotions or stress" is what activates it initially, maybe it reacts to the feelings of loss, or guilt.
Which would explain why kakishi activated his so late. (that he didn't PHYSICALLY kill his best friend, but that he feels at fault for it) And also why it was important that madara told sasuke the sob story of itachi, so sasuke felt guilty, and the extreme loss of his loving brother, rather than the guy he hates, and cared nothing about after he killed him.
I'm also curious why madara wanted itachi's body, if it was just the eyes he could have just plucked them and stucked them into little jars to give to sasuke later. But thats a different thread.
