Sasuke vs. Danzo continued.The vacuum cleaner from hell.Summary:Sasuke pierces Danzo with another arrow but Danzo survives using Izanagi, and Sasuke is having trouble maintaining Susanoo. Watching from the sidelines, Madara thinks about the Izanagi technique. Izanagi is the ultimate illusion that allows the user to control their personal reality for a moment, but it comes at the cost of permanently blindness. With five open Sharingans left on his arm, Danzo decides to take a chance and summons a huge chimera called a baku which tries to vacuum Sasuke into its mouth. Sasuke and his Susanoo are unable to move under the vortex, allowing Danzo to sneak behind. Danzo creates a gap in Susanoo by hitting it with a wind blade attack, but Sasuke manages to take out the baku with a fire blast and then uses Susanoo to punch Danzo away. On the sidelines, Karin has been keeping track of time and realizes that every minute one of the eyes on Danzo's arm closes. Karin tells this to Sasuke, and Sasuke reacts by immediately smashing Danzo with Susanoo, leaving Danzo with three open Sharingans on his arm. The fight continues and Sasuke lets go of Susanoo and forms his chakra into a blade, while Danzo, now with only one open eye on his arm, puts his chakra onto a kunai. The two fighters charge and impale each other with their respective weapons.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~I'm surprised. Looks like Danzo doesn't have any other improbable powers. His only move of note in this chapter (other than Izanagi) was to summon the giant vacuum beast, which exploded when Sasuke fed it hot air. I'm not quite sure why Danzo's Sharingans started closing really quickly near the end of the chapter even though Sasuke didn't land any major blows, but I suppose it could be just Danzo running out of chakra. Danzo probably dodged Sasuke's stab with Izanagi, but Sasuke went nuclear eyes at the end so he may have hit Danzo with Tsukuyomi. Despite ridiculous powers from both Sasuke and Danzo, this has been a pretty entertaining battle, and I'm looking forward to see how it'll end (supposedly next issue). I want to see if Danzo actually dies or not.
