Re: Obito was not scared of Itachi
Arrrrrgggh I must have explained this so many times on other threads now. But here we go....

People act like Itachi can just say "izanami", lose an eye and bang, the technique's done. Not true.
Why won't Izanami work against Obito?
- The repetition of contact is near impossible with Obito's intangibility. In a battle which will probably be at high speed. Itachi may not be able to fully analyze it in time. Hell, it took Konan a long time to figure out the 5 minute intangibility flaw.
- Even if Obito is caught in Izanami, you have effectively captured a shinobi with one of the strongest resolves in the manga (although i still think the whole Rin thing is a bit pathetic). Obito's not like Kabuto and has accepted himself. He pretty much hates everything and that won't change (at least until he gets TNJ'd by Naruto)
- ASSUMPTION - After being taught Izanagi by the leader of the Uchiha Clan, we can assume that Obito has intel on the inner workings of its counterpart, Izanami. And no, there is no manga proof of it, but admit it is a fair assumption that you know a hell of a lot about the Uchiha if Madara is your teacher.
