    I'm in denial.....sigh.

    I think Kakashi just said that phrase to emphasize his growth of ability to Itachi, not to actually say that Itachi = blindness

    Aaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhfjghfjghfgjfhgjfhgjfghfjghfjghfjksdjskdjskdjweiwieuiufhmnmanmnsdmnjekwjksjf

    But, haha, I have an argument:

    Itachi's father has been using sharingan for over 20-30 years, and HE still has PERFECT vision. You claim that sharingan stresses the eyes, but he seems to have no eye deterioration what-so-ever, even after that many years of use. Why is that? Or is it just a Kishimoto slip?

    =( you break my heart

    But he didn't keep it activated all-day like Itachi, you see xD People using it not abusively can still have a nice vision after all.
    So that adds up to the Mangekyou which Fugaku didn't have. :wink

    Again, people, I'm not stating anything... he may or not be blind, it's just how it would work if it really deteriorated like Kakashi said. :spaz

    Okay, sorry for being annoying, but I think I'll argue one more point

    If he was going blind, then after he was escaping the frog stomach and turned his sharingan OFF, then he shouldn't have been able to see his surroundings too clearly. Why didn't he crash into a gate, which he might've presumed to be a tree?

    Spoiler: ababab

    Persistance is key

    i think the amaterasu comes out from the mouth (similar to other Katon or fire jutsus) it's that it's the most powerful Katon Jutsu IMO

    XD It's ok. You're right in this point.
    Whoever, I think he can feel Kisame's presence, and the sharky can still guide him.
    At that time, we didn't have any slim idea of him going blind XD Maybe the true symptoms appeared after the 2.5 years? :laugh

    I think Itachi can sorta sense his surroundings or maybe people. He knew Sasuke was in the hall behind him without even looking.

    good theory :p , very little speculation and backed up well.
    itachi mentions that kakakshi cannot use the sharingan to it's fullest because he is not part of their clan. kakashi knows that (as implied in the manga), also he cannot switch off his sharingan. as a measure against the erosion of the eyesight, do you think he keeps his one hidden under the forehead protector and only uses it when needed?

    Noo. Gaara can't die! Dyroness! Prove that Gaara is alive! I command it! :p


    As for your ideas: Sounds good to me. I think God of the Sun comes from the mouth though. In the The container of "Suzaku": Uchiha Sasuke thread, someone was going against the phoenix theory by saying the Uchiha just choose to specialize in fire techniques, but don't have any real natural fire abilities. That's when I mentioned God of the Sun, a technique that dumbfounded Jiraiya the Sannin, as being proof that the Uchiha clan does have natural fire abilities within them. I mention this in this thread just as evidence that God of the Sun is not part of Itachi's eye abilities and is therefore not a possible cause of eyesight deterioration. Yes, fire hurts eyes, but sorry, you can't use that excuse! :p

    Cool thread! I liked the scientific stuff, it makes it sound very realistic that Itachi is losing his eyesight. But Kishimoto will probably come up with some lame reason >__>

    Well, good job :glomp I don't think I need to rep you, cause you are Celestial already :oh :p

    Very good theory but I disagree with this part. The reason is that I don't think its possible the human eye to take in too much. It has it's limit and you can't exceed that.
    Also I think the normal sharingan would deteriorate eye sight but not to the degree that one would notice it in his/her lifetime. I think it would take like maybe over 100 years of having the sharingan and using it frequently to notice any eyesight loss.

    I still think Amaterasu is an eye technique. We haven't really seen him use it but it is linked with Tsukuyomi through the names and the myth.

    well, i think this theory is plausible - we can't have everything without losing something!
    so for itachi's awesome sharingan power, he trades his vison for it - that's fair enough

    i think kishi wants to balance out the play field a bit; so that even the most powerful char must have a weakness or handicap of some sort :tem

    Yeah, I mean seeing afterimages all the time can't be good for you. Kind of like watching T.V. 3 inches from the screen. Good work!

    just wanted to say that he doesnt see afterimages, an after image would be the image left after the movement, what he sees is energy prediction images, i guess that would best describe it.

    also, Kakashi didnt exactly say his eye sight was deteriorating, he asked how his eye sight was, so its possible it could have meant something else, but I doubt it.

    I dont think the constant use of sharingan causes damage, its just the mangekyou, remember that you cant measure the eye and strain of an uchiha with sharingan like you would a normal eye, thats why they are the ones who use the limit successfully, because they have the blood that supports the eye and the strain caused by it, but mangekyou on the other hand is something that is very rare in a sharingan user and the blood wouldnt help out much in that area, other than keeping you concious after using it. If I was an uchiha with sharingan, I would use it all the time too, especially if I was an s rank criminal.
