Re: Itachi's status development..
Some of the hype surrounding him has lessened... which is actually a good thing, imo. >.>
But the downfall is exactly what Mikey said... Itachi is now far more expendable than he was before. So I can see why fans of his character are upset.
Personally, I've been waiting for him to reveal his masterplan, not a joint-plan... but eh, I'd like to find out what their plan is exactly before I make my decision on it.
And actually, him having a mentor and idolizing Madara does add a new dimension to his personality. Just depends on if you like this new dimension. lol
I don't really care myself.... =X
After all... he killed Mikoto. <.<
Yeah... I'm biased. xD
