Personally, I don't really like how Kishimoto did the Deud Ex Machina with Madara telling Sasuke everything. However, I have a newfound respect for Itatchi.
Before he was just your stereotypical power-hungry bad guy with a little extra jerk added.
Yet, in reality, assuming what Madara said is true, Itatchi is an excellently designed tragic hero, stepping up there with Oedipus.
However, I'd like to see (not neccessarily now...because I want the storyline to advance) Itatchi's past a little. Assuming all this is true, it'd be nice to get some glimpse's into what was going on in Itatchi's mind.
Its funny, I used to really like him even after we learned about what happened. But the more I think about it the more POed I become, and now I want nothing more than to see Konoha fall for what they did!:mad:
seems revenge has totally conumed sasuke kakshi was right it would destroy him inside. kakashi has lost everyone close to him but u don't see him acting like a wuss like sasuke was doing. now sasuke is urinating on his brothers memory by destroying the very place he gave up so much to protect by destroying it. why should a whole village be massacred because of what soem elders did. the third seemed to try and avoid war but danzo and those other elders seemed threated by the uchia clan its true what haku said once villages fear bloodline limits. now sasuke is nothing but being minipulated by maddra. his judgement obsured by hate and revenge.
yes im sure everyone has established that sasuke is a cry baby, but hopefully naruto or sumone else can slap sum sense into him.
ps... have u eva wondered if sasuke is nw tryna follow in itachi's footsteps by tryin to deceive madara now having know how smart he is (having avoided itachi's amaretsu), maybe sasuke has sumthing up his sleeve. neva judge a cry baby by its tears lol
I have been reviewing the Anime about Itachi. And you actually see a distinct difference in him compared to the other villains in Naruto. He never wanted to harm anybody except Sasuke (Remeber when Kisame asked him to cut of Naruto's leg, he didnt answer) to show him that he is not strong enough, to get him to become better. He avoided battles wherever possible (When Kakashi pitched, and when the Jman pitch) .
I think we were all intrigued by Itachi's behaviour one way or another.. personally I always thought there's something more about him because like you pointed out he's not like the other villains, he was (sadly) always calm and didn't want to fight unless he had to
