Re: stop with these goddamned "third raikage is best" threads
the man deserves some credit, taking on the eight tails alone and walking away with just that scrach (apparently a great shame for him) any other shinoby could only dream about that.
and fighting 10.000 men for 3 days without pause, come on, even if they were taking numbers and fighting him one on one (probably not happening this way) it's still a remarkable feat, 3 days of continues fighting, not even a sleep, lunch or bathroombreak :p , and who knows what tech he faced, I'm sure it wasn't 10.000 whimps, he must have faced all forms of combat, taijutsu, ninjutsu and genjutsu and who knows what special tech, and he still managed 3 days ... He's the man
and yeah, he is an edo now, this gives him a little bit more advantages, regenerating body's and such. but think about this, when an edo gets seriously hit he seems to stop while he is reforming, and they can seal him at that moment (thinking about kakashi vs zabuza and haku) the reforming gave the sealing team the time they needed to get the job done. now in the case of the raikage, to be honnest, I don't see much reforming going on after being hit with FRS, that has to mean something.
i'm also against this overhyping of "this weeks badass badguy" but the raikage is one that I feel deserves the praise. the only one to withstand FRS befor was Kakuzu, he managed to save one of his harts against this attack, the rest was totaly shreaded and he couldn't move anymore but he still lived. the raikage takes it a step further, he doesn't seem to have received much damage at all from the attack. he takes the FRS and then comes out all fingers blazing with his strongest attack like the FRS never happend.
