Naruto’s 587 Manga Chapter explains the background of how both Izanami and Izanagi work. Kabuto still fights to escape the looping illusion which was caused by Itachi. As a consequence Itachi had gone blind on one of his eyes. Kabuto’s brother Urushi wonders when Kabuto will be back as he still waits for him even after such a long time.
Naruto 587 continues from last week’s chapter. Sasuke asks Itachi when he had used it because even Sasuke had not noticed when he used it. Izanami was first initiated during the point when Kabuto had first stabbed with his sword. Sasuke asks how an eye technique can do something like this without using the eyes. Itachi responds by saying that Izanami works using your opponents senses.
The instant you voluntarily decide to act, your memorize the bodily sensation of that instant like an image, but using his eyes. You replicate the same bodily sensation intentionally and memorize that as well like before which creates the same point again. Izanami overlaps the first point and the second point which connects them. By doing this it connects the time that passed between them. In other words, it creates an infinite loop. In exchange for Itachi’s eyesight.
Itachi explains that the Izanami was originally created as a methods to punish and save the users of Izanagi. Izanagi was rumored to be the most perfect Uchiha eye technique, allowing them to change destiny. If what you do is not correct of successful, you can just delete and go back, just like what Danzo did. Its a way to only keep the results that are useful to you.
During an important fight, where Uchiha were not allowed to fail, Izanagi was extremely helpful as it allowed them to correct any mistakes they had made. The risk that was implied about losing their eyesight was just the understatement. The users became arrogant and used it too much for themselves. If one person does it, it’s okay. But if more than one person does it, they ended up fighting over which results were better. Izanami was created to stop this conflict.
It’s a technique invented to save other Uchiha comrades from Arrogance and Procrastination. It stopped people that tried to use the easy way to run away from the results they had created. When the person acknowledge their results and stop trying to run away the jutsu is cancelled. It’s a Jutsu to teach people not to rely on Jutsu but to accept their own destiny. Therefore the Izanami Jutsu became a Kinjutsu.
Itachi explains to Sasuke that he had to use his technique because he had blindly believed that he was able to obtain everything and nothing was impossible for him. Thus he’s afraid of failing and tries to convince himself that he could not possibly fail. Kabuto has deceived himself that other people’s power is his own, he needs to realize that he will have use for them. Itachi states that he needs to realize this before he dies, unlike Itachi did.
Sasuke screams out by saying that he’s doing such a thing for someone like him and that Itachi is perfect. Itachi calms Sasuke down to tell him that he had to go as far as to use an eye technique called Kotoamatsukami to control Sasuke. He treated him like a child, which he wanted to protect, and didn’t realize that Sasuke had the power to protect himself. He tells Sasuke that there is no such thing as perfection and that comparing with other things they can move along nicely.
Just like Izanagi and Izanami. Itachi tells Sasuke that he should find what he didn’t have. Plus he shouldn’t call him perfect because as he explained before, he isn’t. Kabuto inside the loop keeps on fighting and tells himself that he’s perfect. Kabuto starts to remember that all he wants is someone to notice him. He wanted to be acknowledged. Why would that be a mistake.
Itachi carries to tell Sasuke that he should always acknowledge his real self. This way he would not have to tell any lies, not even to himself. There is no trust in lies, you wont get any comrades to rely on Sasuke if that happens. In the Izanami loop, Kabuto keeps on attacking even if his chances seems bleak.
A friends of Kabuto speaks out the words “Already 9″, the time when Kabuto and his friends went to bed. Urushi is helping a friend out as he is being healed. He tells him that he should come to his house to wait for Kabuto to come back and help him heal him. His house is still the orphanage. Itachi now speaks that he will stop the Edo Tensei! Naruto 587 ends here.
What a fantastic chapter! Hopefully Kabuto will realize himself and hopefully stop the Edo Tensei. Or the war will continues on. I hope next week’s Naruto 588 will have some exciting fights and hopefully Kabuto stopping the Izanami somehow and keep on fighting!
