nice sig jericho uzimaki
Of course he's dead - EDO TENSEI! He's been dead for many many chapters. :-P
I'm betting on for Izanami to work, Itachi has to die. He can't keep kicking around this manga. He's always been a man of sacrifice and will continue to be so. Plus, every sharingan tech has had some draw back or catch. MS - have to kill someone important to you to activate, causes blindness to use. EMS - need to transplant eyes of someone of equal strength with MS, preferably a family member, which is pretty much the end of them. Izangami - sacrifice an eye to the technique, forever.
Izanami, if Kishi is consistent, should be no different. I won't be surprised if it requires both the eye and a life - perhaps even the life of the caster, which would make it hilarious silly for anyone to ever use. (not to mention it requires a death of someone to change one's destiny... well, that's a no brainer, really). But, be that as it may, I think there is a good chance that Itachi let Kabuto hit him and is about to be done in this manga, potentially the action that activates Izanami, pushing Sasuke to the fore once more.
There - crazy theory for you. It's been a very slow day at work.
