It looks like he half beat Itachi and Itachi then beat himself. How that makes sense I will never know...
Either way, fuck Itachi and his fangirls, fuck Sasuke and his too, can we get back to what the manga's supposed to be about now? As in the actual character Naruto?
Also, Kishimoto is a twat who can't write for shit. I've read fanfics (non-yaoi) that are making a better fist of his creation than him.
