Re: Naruto Manga Chapter 582 Discussion and 583 Predictions
If you go back and look at every single time he's ever used Amaterasu, there are times when it causes him to bleed, and times when it doesn't. I have no idea what the difference tends to be, but I do know that against the Zetsu clones, he was using Susanoo to cast and manipulate Amaterasu, while against Kabuto, he wasn't using Susanoo at all.

very dissapointed in this chapter, i want to see izanami, not a flashback of orochimarus *****.
I don't think that whether or not it's 'safe' for Itachi to die, is an important factor at all. In this case, I think they were both caught by surprise with that particular technique, and Itachi is basically trying to wait for the best opportunity to use Izanami, while still trying to protect his little Bro.
Well, a couple of people mentioned that the Edo Tensei made it safe for Itachi to die. This isn't true, not really. Clearly, when Itachi is incapacitated, Kabuto has a chance to overwrite the Genjutsu with his own seal. Itachi is playing a dangerous game with odds stacked against him. I'm surprised that he took such a major risk despite his paranoia. It goes to show that he trusts Sasuke to protect him in turn. What makes me more curious is that he didn't form the Susano'o around himself while using it's hand to protect Sasuke. I'm not sure there is any precedent for this kind of thing, but it seems within the realm of believability. Thoughts, anyone?
P.S.: This is a shameless plug for my old post! I have a large posts with a few theories/ideas that I'd love for people to support or take apart. I'd be much obliged and I would greatly appreciate it if someone takes a look and lets me know if anyone relates to my ideas.
It's conceivable that he fully intended to get hit in order to draw Kabuto Closer, tricking him into thinking he had the upper hand for a moment. It could be part of Izanami. I can say for sure at this point, that if it were possible for Kabuto to unsummon Itachi using Edo Tensei, he would have done so already.
It's already been shown that he can summon each soul independently with Edo Tensei (he summoned Madara long after the fighting began with all the other Edos), so it only stands to reason that he could unsummon them all independently as well.
If that's the case, why would he even bother fighting against Itachi? At this point I'm sure he's realized that Itachi is going to be a major obstacle in his plans if he doesn't do something about him now.
