BEFORE THE MINATO FANBOYS START FLAMING AND SAYING THAT A ADMITTED INFERIORITY READ FIRST !
here A uses v1 lightning amour, notice his hair is all-back.
same thing over here.
Then there is v2 look at the middle of the panel in the scan below
You see his hair spike up, and at this point, raikage's speed increased significantly (combined with shushin of course)
you see his hair is still spiked up because he is in v2 lightning amour, which is significantly faster then v1
But against minato we only saw him use v1 lightning amour
we also see here that minato just in a nick of time escapes A's punch, but with the enhanced speed of v2 would he have landed a hit on minato ? would minato's reflexes save him this time?
It can be said that A in the past did not have v2 which was why he was unable to land a hit but would he be able to if he had v2 ?
this is just my assumption no flaming allowed, *puts on flameproof jacket*
