Re: Is Konan a gonner???
"Cheat?" According to your logic, Naruto "cheats" every time he uses the Nine-Tailed Fox's power, is that how it is supposed to be? Izanagi was just one of Madara's techniques, and if it was essential to use to ensure his survival, then please point out where he won the fight unfairly. Shinobi use everything to their advantage, so you can't blame them if they have the ability to use powerful techniques, such as Izanagi.

Also, the victory was not a costly one for Madara at all. Madara has a perfect Izanagi (greater than that of Danzo's), so he can use it limitlessly without having to worry about blindness. I realize you might not agree, but this makes basically makes Madara unbeatable. We'll see more in the coming chapters.
