    What do you think of it? As far as I understood, and taking the quote of vered into account, its something similar like Amaterasu, but still different.
    Your thoughts?

    Spoiler:

    " the 炎 in 炎遁, or En in Enton, is a kanji made up of two 火 (fire) stacked on top of each other and in everyday use would mean the act (verb) of ignition, or setting afire. I think the closest english translation in this case would be Inferno Release, or something to the effect. In asian culture/lore (and some western ones too) there are legends of indistinguishable fires like the "三昧眞火" (True Samādhi Fire) from "Journey to the West". Amaterasu was clearly based off of these kinds of mythology, and Enton probably is too.

    Edit/Note: It's not that "Flame Release" is grammatically wrong in the purely dictionary sense. It's just that the feeling conveyed by "Flame Release" doesn't emphasize Enton's obvious power increase over an ordinary "Fire Release", at least IMO. "

    It seems that Amaterasu and Kagutsuchi are both Enton jutsu. Amaterasu creates the Enton and Kagutsuchi manipulates them.

    That sounds reasonable! So Kagutsuchi is used by the right eye, and Amaterasu by the left?

    Sleepyfans' translation is not trustworthy here, since Sasuke was clearly using his right eye.

    Don't take onemanga translation too seriously.

    Right in the chapter we can see Sasuke was using his right eye to control the flames.

    The original text says right, not left, so the right definitely controls the flames.

    Yeah, but Sasuke confuses the issue when he covers an eye. Makes it seem like he just used that one.

    ah well, probably a mistranslation.

    Sasuke's Amaterasu

    It is said Amaterasu is inextinguishable flames that burns for a week but the flames Sasuke put in Susano'o ribcage were disappearing when his eye hurt.

    Notice the 3 painels in the right:[ ]

    His right MS hurts and Amaterasu begins to fade.
    Is just me who thinks it is strange? :oh

    I don't think it was fading, just gathering at the tip of the bones to form that next attack.

    I have a question .. is the ton at the end of the Enton the same ton used for Katon , Suiton and Raiton etc. ?

    Because it sounds like a Kekkei Genkai .. like the Ranton used in this chapter.

    well since sasuke can manipulate the enton and has a full control over it,and from the scan it seems similar to garras sand control.he might create more shapes with it later.like Enton sword.or Enton shield like he did earlier against the raikage.

    yea it was fading.

    he then used the right eye to manipulate the existing flames to make spike flames.

    as shown with the picture of the right eyes and the flames no longer being on the bones and were drawn towards the open area.

    No..

    Sasuke was just moving flames upwards to Raikage.

    Otherwise flames on Samurais and Raikage would fade too..

    maybe.after he was hurt in the eye the flame did went down a bit.but afterwards he used his right eye to manipulate it.
    but it dosent supposed to be connected to sasuke health.its supposed to burn from itself.so we can conclude sasuke lowered the flames on purpose.or if it was connected to his health than thats a very interesting development that shows the deep connection and control that sasuke has over amaterasu.

    He probably put them out for his own safety.

    Well. But this chapter confirms that Amaterasu has the heat of a normal Katon. You just can't get rid of it though.

    I now strongly think Sasukes and Itachi's Amaterasu are slightly different (like their Susanoos and MS Genjutsus). Itachis obviously caused a lot more damage (hole in the wall, Sasukes destroyed Bunshin), but was WAY less flexible than Sasuke's.

    Thats his right eye.... He is using the flames that were already on the tip bones. Sasuke uses his left to cast Amaterasu and right to control/manipulate it.

    Sasuke putting his hand on his eye because is hurting?
    The way I read that page was:
    His MS hurts, for some reason his Amaterasu becomes to fade and before it disappears he uses Kagu Tsuchi to create a barrier with the rest of Amaterasu.
    lol I said the wrong eye.
    But shouldn't Amaterasu only move after appear him using his right eye?

    What? Amaterasu as already there, burning on the bones. He used his right eye to control that and use it against Raikage.

    You can see here he is using it to stretch for Raikage's leg. You can also see that he is gathering the flames from Susano's bones.

    I thought it is an Enton because was manipulating Amaterasu, something that is supposed beyond Katon.
    Enton is a stronger Katon.

    I think its the name for this type of fire attacks...As vered stated, like Katons, only much stronger. The Kagu Tsuchi is the possbility to change the shape of Amaterasu, which seems to be an unique skill since it has an own name.

    Enton is amaterasu flames.sasuke named the amaterasu flames as Enton.i guess since he can control it like an element by itself.
