Re: VS Thread [With Manga Spoilers!]
Just like to set some thing straight with the Nidaime vs Kisame arguments. Nidaime in the Manga DOES NOT HAVE THE DARKNESS TECHNIQUE!!!! Reread that episode, in the Manga it was SHODAIME who used the Darkness Technique, and this is the manga section with the manga vs thread, therefore Nidaime using the Darkness Technique in the Anime is completely and totally void.
For the current battle: I have to say Sakura's massive strength would defeat Shizune's poison mist and prepared needle shot by a lot at this point. Actually, looking back it could be either of them to win, since I don't think Sakura can avoid poisonous needles that could easily kill her if only one needle got in, or the poisonous mist Shizune breathes. Overall I think Sakura and Shizune would have some kind of stalemate or tie, without either of them being the clear victor.
