Naruto’s latest manga, Naruto 576, is fantastic as the result of last week’s guessing stops. Sasuke spots a figure above who is jumping from branch to branch, he looks very familiar to his brother, Itachi. Furthermore, Madara mocks Tsunade for being a weakling even when she’s from the Senju family.
We start this week’s chapter as Sasuke quickly opens his Sharingan to see closer who this person is. He flashes back and sees that both this character and Itachi both look very familiar.
Sasuke quickly runs after him and asks Itachi to wait, at this point Itachi has nothing more to say so he just keeps running. Sasuke questions him if he’s Itachi, and again there is no response. Sasuke then opens his Susanoo to get hold of Itachi, but at this quick moment, Itachi himself opens his and quickly dodges Sasuke’s Susanoo.
This proves to Sasuke that it is Itachi after all. Impressed Itachi says that he’s impressed by the progress Sasuke has made as he’s been able to master the Susanoo. Sasuke questions Itachi why he’s still alive, Itachi replies with Kabuto’s “Edo Tensei” technique, or Impure World Resurrection.
At this point Itachi wont be able to stop since he has “important” things to do, like defeating and stopping the Impure World Resurrection (Edo Tensei), as well as many other things which aren’t clear right now.
At this point, Sasuke tells Itachi that he has a ton of questions that he has to ask him. Sasuke shouts at Itachi to ask him if he feels guilty because of his lies to him. Sasuke then reveals that he already knows everything about Itachi as Tobi had already told him this.
Itachi tells Sasuke that he’s already told him everything. Sasuke then reveals that he can see through his genjutsu as he has his eyes. Itachi then flashes to Naruto and thinks that Sasuke can only understand Naruto’s Suffering and Determination.
Itachi then reveals that Sasuke has changed over the time he was gone, Sasuke replies with that information being wrong, but instead Itachi himself had changed Sasuke’s past and future. Sasuke then thinks of the time where all of his peers had died, and tells himself that he should have also died instead of being kept alive.
Tobi now speaks for Itachi’s side as he states that Itachi’s decided to bear the weights of his comrades on his shoulders while killing the Uchiha Clan. It was all because of the discrimination that Uchiha Clan had. Therefore the pupils do not blame him for such a decision.
Sasuke questions why he was left alive at this time. Itachi answers with such a caring comment, as Sasuke didn’t know anything about what was happening at the time. He also did not know anything about the Uchiha Clan’s foolish ideas, thus he deserved to live.
Itachi also mentions that he needed someone from the Uchiha clan to judge Itachi for his crimes that he had committed, and Sasuke was the perfect person to do so. Itachi had used the hatred within Sasuke to help him judge Itachi, but this plan had failed since Sasuke has now developed the idea that Konoha should be destroyed for their wrong doing, as well as turning Sasuke into a criminal.
Itachi had wished Sasuke to take the right path, but unfortunately, Sasuke had taken the wrong path. Itachi hoped that after his death Sasuke would turn into the correct path but the lies and efforts Itachi had placed on Sasuke’s path.
At this moment, Itachi smiles and thinks of Naruto, he says that the things he had done guide you to the wrong path, it meant that Naruto had also effected Itachi’s path has he wants to bring him back.
We move to where Madara is. He points to Tsunade who is the Medic Ninja within The Ultimate Team. He asks her if she’s the descendant of Hashirama Senju. Madara then threatens Tsunade that she’ll be the first one to die as she is the descendant of Hashirama, as well as not being able to use Mokuton, also that she’s weak and on top of that he says she’s a weak ugly Senju.
Tsunade replies that she might not be able to use Mokuton, but what she inherited from Hashirama wasn’t strength but something which continues flowing through the ages. She states that this power is her Will Of Fire!
