Yes.
I firmly believe Deidara would have won anyway. The simple fact is that if they fought outside the desert, Gaara would have much less sand to use.

Kanuro, yes, and Zaku. The guy with air holes in his hands.

Yeah, that battle was awesome. I had thought Neji and Chouji died then. Good times. Part I was just brilliant.

True, but everyone has something which is their specialty. I really liked how he used sound.

Yes, but I am still not satisfied. Something is not smooth.

Honestly, I find that Kishi could have used AL connected to the Uzumaki stuff, thus being more closer to the story with Naruto. Not an Uchiha.

I don't :/
We came to a difference of opinions, for once, lol ;D

Yes, I didn't think of that much. That's true. But his built up goal was crashed. Which I don't like.

It always was. But, now it's just so obviously much more, that it gets ridiculous. Madara even said Sasuke will surpass Itachi by far. Which I hate.

Of course. I simply hate how it turned out.
I am not saying that the whole connections thing in the manga are bad, but some characters were simply disgraced.

Kakuzu had much potential. He was a really good villain. Unlike certain someone.
