I know what most fellow Sasuke fans will say
" We haven't seen his EMS in full action" But i am basing my side of the arguments from manga facts.
We've only seen Sasuke use his new powers against the zetus but we can hardly call that a real fight.
Now enough of Sasuke lets talk about Gaara.
Counter to Sasuke's strongest attack.Amatarasu
Counter to Genjutsu:Gaara is a long ranged fighter so Sasuke's Genjutsus are useless unless he gets up close and Gaara already has Intel on how Uchiha's use there Genjutsus so him not looking directly into Sasuke's eyes is a piece of cake especially while having a fighting style like Gaaras.
Counter to Chidori:People use this panel as a excuse for Sasuke to actually land a hit on Gaara.
But Gaaras sand is more than capable f guarding raton moves for example
Endurance against 5 Susanoo's:He took on five Susanoo's and in my opinion took the least damage out of the five,he even had to save Mei while holding off the other 5.
Give me your opinions too guys thnx for reading and please tell me if it was too long since its the first thread i've actually made,thnx again guys.
