How come Kakashi isn't blind from using MS?

    Kakashi said at the beginning of Part 2 that he had only recently created a fabulous new technique.

    Itachi had been using it for going on nine years and possibly non stop. How many times do you think Kakashi pulled his Mangekyo that we haven't seen? Kakashi didn't even pull it when he was about to be killed by Kakuzu. He doesn't need it on non-Akatsuki missions.

    But Sasuke used it several times in a day. The shock to his eye must have been bad.

    Mangekyo Sharingan Techniques use about a third or a fourth of the users chakra in one shot. And that is directed through one eye. I imagine it's like overheating an engine. It's just too much. I think the eye just gets burned out. And the more frequently you use it the worse it is. If you space it out the eye gets to heal, and the strain is less overall so the eye lasts longer. Repeated use in a short timespan just runs the engine harder when it's already at the red line.

    I think if you use it like Sasuke did, or how Kakashi may have during training, he probably had a vision attack like Sasuke did. Which is how he knew. Because Itachi described it as gradual and at first not noticable.
    1.I'm almost certain that Kakashi is speaking from personal experience. On the other hand he knows about Amaterasu and knew about Tsukiyomi. I want to know what Kakashi's source is for Mangekyo knowledge. Did an Uchiha mentor him after he first got it prior to the Massacre? Did he find Nakano Shrine? Did he discover it being on the ANBU detail that monitored the Uchiha?

    2. Kakashi specifically called it out in the Manga when he first pulled it, and it is referred to as such in the databook.
    The EMS requires an Uchiha sibling of equal power. Or at least a very special blood relative. I wonder if the transfer works both ways. If brothers could just swap eyes though? If Madara had swapped eyes before he went blind both he and Izuna could've had the EMS maybe? Ah the mysteries...

    You are kidding right? There's nothing stopping him using it on, say, someone's heart. Or their head. Or their eyes. Or any other part of their body. He could cause some incredible damage with that thing.

    I haven't read what anyone else said but this is what i Think.

    Blindness starts to kick in after a sharingan user deactivates the sharingan after repeated use of MS. Because Kakashi cannot deactivate his sharingan, he doesn't experince blindness.

    I'd go by the 'Kakashi is awesome:gar' It's the most reasonable.

    But If you want explanation:

    1. He didn't use it that much
    2. He's not an Uchiha so maybe that's that
    3. He's not using it that much.
    4. He's not an Uchiha
    5. He's Jesus form what the people say
    6. His dad is in heaven, heating up 'em marshmellows with someone important

    Think about how many times Itachi used it before his vision was failing for 2 eyes, Now think about Kakashi for 1 eye

    ur right, there certainly seems to be alot of questions ... and unfortunately they seem to be the kind of questions kishi will not openly answer in the manga. i cant really see a conversation going like:

    naruto: hey sensei, where did you get your sharingan? :huh

    kakashi: its actually torn out of my old (dead) team mates head. :amuse

    naruto: :hmm ... but what about the MS?

    kakashi: (super secret answer)

    naruto: oh, well that settles that then :) lets eat some ramen.

    My guess was always that Kakashi was blaming himself for Obitos death all this time and so the amount of grief perhaps steadily awakened the MS within Obito's eye.

    Well it was the same with the super saiyan in DBZ. At first it was said that only one guy in 1000 years can become one, then Vegeta got it too and eventually Toriyama had to introduce Brolly and tell everyone that he's the godly motherfucker and the rest of them are just halfbaked fakes.

    I can see how Kishi did a simial thing because of fanserving Kakashi fans and now wonders 'how the fuck do i get out of this one'. I feel a stinky shit coming towards us with the Moon Eye Plan:notrust

    He would eventually go blind but he only had his Mangekyou Sharingan for three years, Itachi had them for ten years, but Itachi uses his Mangekyou more often then Kakashi so it excellerated the process. I would give Kakashi a good four years until MS blindess kicks in.

    Kamui RULES!

    Ultimate troll from Kishi..

    Kakashi messes up Madara's Eye of the Moon plan and instead gets himself a shiny bright new eye with uber ha0x powers.

    Sharingan implants allow for the Eternal Mangekyo Sharingan. That is why Madara took his brother's eyes, so that he could use the Mangekyo Sharingan without going blind. Kakashi's Sharingan eye was already an implant to begin with, having originally belonged to Obito, hence why using Mangekyo Sharingan doesn't cause Kakashi to go blind in his left eye.

    He probably has lost some eyesight, but he doesn't give too much of a shit, since he has that eye covered up most of the time.
