Re: TOP 5 deaths
1: Itachi, I was so frustrated the first time he died and hated ''Madara'' for telling the truth AFTER Itachi died. Its truly a sad story, and still the best plot twist....However EDO Itachi fixed a bit, they will never go back to the way they were but atleast they said goodbye to each other.
2: Jman, this dude lost so much, he lost his student, his friend, he never got the girl and if that wasn't enough he was killed by his student.
3: Minato & Kushina, Imagine having a kid and dying few min later and leaving your new born baby behind. (My former 3 was Obito, his death was beautiful writen but since he is alive cant count him)
honorable mention: Hiruzen, Asuma, Haku, Yahiko,T Kisame, Tsunade :D
Neji death was to random, if he had a talk with his EDO father than his death would mean something.
