Thanks to Kotoamatsukami Itachi is now free of Kabuto's Jutsu but I'm calling Itachi's bluff, "I will stop the edo tensei" he says with no doubt because he knows without the initial caster of the Jutsu (that would be Kabuto) he can live forever.
Just an idea but the effects of the edo tensei may not have worn off just the control of it, like if Itachi got sawed in half he'd just reconstruct making him immortal cause he has control of his own body.
<> What is Itachi's true intent in stopping this jutsu himself? <> If Kabuto releases the jutsu will Itachi return to the spirit world? <> Can Itachi Die? <> Does Madara fully know how to use this jutsu or did kabuto keep some > secrets about it?
believe Itachi has to have been at least in his
mid 20s, otherwise he was drawn way too mature
looking in the flashbacks. I could see
someone's appearance not changing all that
much from late teens to mid 20s but not from early
teens to early 20s.
(With the lines he
really looks like he's at least 30).
As for what narutopedia said, most places go off
of what is in the manga, and as I previously
stated, there isn't enough information to get
an actual age. All you can come up with is an
accordion of ages. Whoever was making that page
just wanted to come up with a real number so they
just decided that "this took this long"
without ever having any confirmation on it.
Itachi is very loyal to konoha as shown till date.
Even after his death he planned by implanting
Kotoamatsukami in Naruto to stop Sasuke in order
to protect Konoha and sasuke also.
Itachi is one of the most intelligent ninja we
can say he would be in top 5 list in the
intelligence aspect. He said something means he
really mean it. He said every jutsu has a weak
point and he found some weak point in that Edo
Tensei which we are not aware of.
Itachi cannot be released by Kabuto. It should
be his will or someone else should seal him.
Kabuto would never reveal completely to
Madara. We know he is cunning.
What do you
mean that we are not aware of? Kabuto
straight up told Madara that the sharingan could
easily be used to dispel the jutsu.
Itachi didn't gain control over his own edo
tensai, he only gained control over himself (which
edo tensai never ever ever affected, it was only
the kunai knife that affected that, which is not
part of edo tensai) so unless someone seals him,
the only person that can release him is Kabuto.
Not that he would because I believe he would
be dispelling it for everyone all at once, and not

Thats an interesting
thing to say and probably the only explination for
why kabuto hasn't disspell Itachi's edo
tensai but then again his controll increased and
his attention can be focus on specific people ahhh
more contradictions. Knowing Itachi their battle
would be epic can't wait to see edo
Wait just a fryball minute didn't Itachi say
in 'EP82 Sharingan vs Sharingan' that
only someone with the sharingan and kekegenkai can
defeat him so why in the world would madara be any
different and why would he leave naruto to do the
job? He could have search out madara pretend to
still be under kabuto's controll, look him
dead in the eye then BAM an infine look of
Itachi was talking to Sasuke when he said that so
he was really saying whatever it would take to get
Sasuke to become stronger.
at as a statement solely to Sasuke (and not as a
general statement) it's probably true, since
Sasuke didn't truly defeat Itachi.
If you're talking about Naruto.. well
jinchurikis are the only ones who really stand a
chance at breaking tsukuyomi (Sasuke's
breaking of it didn't count since Itachi was
pulling his punches that fight).
side note: When Nagato absorbed the chakra
from Naruto's attack he regained his original
To me this says two things,
feel free to disagree since it's all just
theory anyway. (expect a rebuttal if you do
Firstly it says that
Nagato's apearance was based on chakra level,
rather than for a more physical reason.
Secondly it says that edo tensai doesn't
repair your soul, it only restores it.
Now I have always kind of maintained that
edo tensai ressurects people to their ideal
version of themselves. Others have stated that edo
tensai resurrects you to the state you were in at
your death, citing Nagato's white hair as
Well Itachi when he died was
very sick and coughed up blood for no reason (at
times anyway, there are references that I
don't feel like looking up), yet I don't
see any evidence of his debilitating sickness in
his edo tensai state.
The facts above
lead me to believe that edo tensai does resurrect
you to a "perfect" (put in quotes,
because perfect doesn't exist) state, but
with the chakra level that you had when you died.
In other words (with the secondary kunai jutsu
included) it restores your body completely, but it
can't restore your soul(chakra level) to more
than it was when it went to the other realm.
This makes a lot of sense to me since the
body and soul really are two separate things
before edo tensai is used. The soul is unchanged,
but the body is not. Makes sense that it could
improve one and not the other.
not restoring the body of a person you are
resurrecting would make the whole jutsu worthless
more or less.
I think this also means
that if say Obito was brought back, he would have
both of his eyes and a full body, even though half
of his body was crushed, and one of his eyes was
removed before he died.
@Almightywood: This doesn't explain why
Nagato still had injuries to his legs when he was
resurrected. If Itachi seems to be completely
healed from his illness which appeared to be
physical, then so should Nagato. There appear to
be some inconsistencies with this jutsu.
@Almightywood: I don't agree, he had to lean
on Itachi from the moment he got resurrected.
Yes, when his chackra was restored he was able to
stand better but, his legs weren't completely
healed. Refer to page 4 of
erequisite-to-become-hokage/ Kabuto himself
said he lacked mobility and thought his shared
field of vision with his summons would make up for
that directly referring to his legs. Additionally,
what would be the significance of having him walk
around barefooted? Wouldn't his prime self be
when he was able to wear shoes? Or are all of the
resurrections wearing their burial garb, or the
clothes they wore at the time of their death?
These both don't make sense because I believe
they were wearing other attire and buried in
different clothes when they died (in the case of
Itachi and Nagato respectively). I think
Kishimoto wanted the fact that he had no shoes to
emphasize the fact that he still had problems with
Also if the jutsu repaired
all physical damage the third Raikage would
probably not have that scar on his chest and would
have probably been younger ( around the age when
he fought the 8 tails,unless he got more powerful
as he got older).
These all lead me to
believe there are inconsistencies with this jutsu.
