@Uzumaki Sasuke, I doubt that very much, lol. As far as I was able to discern, Nagato lost because the battle was fought on a three vs. one basis. Not only that, he also had restricted mobility do to the crippling injury he recieved while he was still alive. Kabuto attempted to compensate for this by using the linked fields of vision provided by the Rinnegan, however, Itachi duly noted this, and removed that advantage. It would be unfair to say that Itachi would get crushed by the Six Path's of Pain, however, based upon their individual prowess even the Tendo Pain would likely have been able to defeat him in a 1 vs. 1 battle. Furthermore, Nagato himself, if he did not have restricted mobility would have been liable to tear Itachi apart. And, on top of that, Kabuto may very well shot himself in the foot by fully taking over Nagato's body and not allowing him to decide which moves would have served the situation best.
Please, note that I have the utmost respect for Itachi, and believe that he truly personified the sacrifice of the shinobi. However, to be realistic there is no feasible way he would have been Nagato in a proper 1 vs. 1. However, as noted here, there are rarely fair fights fought in this series as is, although, watching Kakuzu get owned by Naruto and Co. was highly amusing, he had a point when he stated that they were unfairly fighting with the advantage of numbers. I guess that is the benefit of having allies, and Itachi himself noted: "If you try to take it all on yourself, regardless of your level of power, you will inevitably fail".
@rocksanish, do not worry, Kishimoto will likely balance Naruto and Sasuke out, just as he has done before. Sasuke's increased speed will give him an advantage, however, Naruto in his own right is almost equally as fast. I, personally am more concerned about the possibility that Bijuu mode Naruto is more powerful than the Eternal Mangekyou sharingan Sasuke, however, only time will determine the extent of their individual powers.
On another note, Itachiseemed to be a bit slower than usual in this episode, which is to be expected I presume, seeing as, he may have been adjusting to his new body, and also, he may have been slowed down by his resistance to the Edo Tensei. However, it may simply be that the animation, while it was good, was lacking in its representation of Itachi's agility.
@Shica, good job, although, you should try writing the whole comment in proper English next time. Just as a favour to me, could you omitting the misusage of all caps, sentence fragments, jargon, nonsense, and misused symbols?
@adrian24 you won't be the only one who thinks that as i agree it talks about the view of world peace isn't something thats going to be easy but its a view that should never be forgotten cause it is doable
it seems a lot of immature kids like to comment about how the episodes are too short, or dont have enough action and too much talk. always complaining.....if you had some intelligence then you would utilize the chance to learn what you can from the talk there is.... you can learn a lot from what some of the shinobi say in this manga ... take some of that wisdom and apply it into your own life...thats what i do and it really seems to help me out a lot in my life....the naruto manga is my inspiration to making it through hard times in life...i dont know if anyone else can relate to it like i can...but either way...enough of the complaining of the animation quality as well....what truly matters is how the whole story turns out to be in the end...so at least wait till then to cry about it.. if anyone agrees with me please say so and add me as a friend...i have some knowledge in the naruto world..and i would like to hear other peoples opinions and ideas..so if there is anyone else out there that is mature about the naruto series...then let me know ..thanks
to those saying that this was short bi'm sorry to tell you but i went back and read the manga after watching this and what happened in this episode is exactly what happened in the 2 and a half chapters of the manga it was in so the anime is following exactly what is shown (the showing the friends posing stuff i think is because we should have seen the beginning of the fight with the mizukage in this episode but decided to show it in full next week)
the episode was too short but kool the manga was way better this episode WHAT A DRAG ...manga's are way better too than these episodes ..anyway moving on it's about time we see madara that is what i think ..
