3. Kurenai brakes the genjutsu fast enough to dodge & blocks hits from Itachi.
Final: Basically it ended in a stalemate trons.
Its called stupid math. Itachi was considered the 'Genjutsu God', MORE BECAUSE OF HIS SHARINGAN THAN ANYTHING ELSE. Uchiha's were seen as great with regard to genjutsu, but after the Uchiha Massacre there have been only 3 'true' Uchiha's left. So if some other character uses Genjutsu they can't be as good by birth because of the sharingan.
Dumb logic, additionally Kurenai has been around since the beginning of the manga, and wherever she's from, or whatever happened to her clan hasn't been discussed. Say whatever you want about Itachi's exchange with the Jounins, none of them were trying to kill Itachi, they were attempting to capture and detain him, and from the looks on their faces at the giddyup they knew it would be a tall order. They all looked like a Mike Tyson opponent back in the day, shelled before the first bell said ding.
Regardless, Itachi is one thing, Rock Lee though? The same dude that Gaara had to save his life because his lamed ass Jackie Chan Drunk Technique was starting to get him skewered by Kimmimaro?
What this dude ain't even thinking about also is that bijuu can seemingly heal their Jinks, or take tons of damage for them. Every Jink that has fought besides the ones grabbed by the Akatsuki, check them out 'after' the battle, their wounds gone, stamina back, heck Hachibi complained about losing several tentacles, and KB was kicking it.
For Rock Lee, and Gai, those Gates while sexy to some, are death sentences. The higher you go, the closer to death you come, and when the Crackhead moves are completed, if you're opponent is still standing, 'like Gaara', WTF do you do then? Its not even worth posting a panel of Gai after his highest gates to date vs. Kisame, he was carried to the Alliance.
Anime Fan, list all of these Jounins that Rock Lee pwns because of these Gates, and please manga faktz, stop trying to make everyone come to your Fantasy Land. What you're stating Kishi never wrote, ANYWHERE. Your assuming because you like him, definition FANNING.
