Re: Just a Thought THREAD
I think Sasuke would end up being the most popular guy in Konoha and slightly stronger than Naruto if he stayed. Sakura would probably receive training in genjutsu and she could spar in a genjutsu contest against Sasuke in that case. Lee would want to spar taijutsu against Sasuke.
Naruto would need some strong motivation to train as hard, Sasuke would have the motivation in Itachi, Naruto would probably be behind Sasuke in power and skill because Sasuke would receive more sparing matches.
The great off panel war has begun...also called the war of one panel because most fights started and ended in one panel.
