Why didn't Itachi use Izanami on Sasuke?

    Itachi went far enough to give Naruto Shisui's eye so that he could make Sasuke protect Konoha. So why didn't he use Izanami to make Sasuke realize his course of actions wasn't good and that revenge isn't the answer?

    Cause with that the rest of every episode that lead to Sasuke realizing what he had to do would mostly become filler instead ? just a thought...
    Ps: That alone makes me think that there was lazy writing back then. It's like questioning why in Lord Of The Rings they chose to go on land instead of flying, it would turn the movie into a short clip instead and save lots of time which beats the purpose of the movie and the book if there's not a long story to be told.

    :sure

    Pretty sure Izanami only works/is only really useful on a conflicted target

    And Sasuke was never really conflicted until AFTER Itachis second death

    He may have done fucked up shit, but as far as he was concerned he was doing right by his family...And thus...No conflict for Sauce :oldshrug

    If Izanami was used on say Five Kage Summit arc Sauce, or as i like to call him, Darth Sasuke, it wouldnt change anything about him imho and hed bust out nigh instantly. The whole point of Izanami is to force the target to accept oneself, and Darth Sasuke was perfectly fine being the bad guy...So hed wake up in Izanami...And be like "fuck this shit im a real ass goon tho" and then get back to the real world and kick whoever's ass just tried to force an existential crisis on him.

    So...Yeah...My 2 cents on why Kotoamatsukami was chosen over Izanami...Because the latter FORCES the target to abide by a new outlook...The latter is kinda just a guideline that can be ultimately worthless if the target is comfortable being a "villain".

    Several reasons.
    1. He wanted Sasuke to have EMS, and blinding one of his own eyes was counter intuitive to that.
    2. He already had Koto Amatsukami prepared to mind rape Sasuke anyway.
    3. He was the one who put Sasuke on the path of revenge in the first place, so mind-raping him into thinking revenge isn't the answer would make no sense.
    4. Izanami's mechanics don't allow for that in the first place. It only affects people with a very specific sort of denial, and forces them to accept themselves and their fate. Vague as that requirement is, I doubt being revenge obsessed in itself makes one susceptible to it.

    Pre-death Itachi, I agree. Putting Sasuke on the path of revenge was a mean to an end to have Sasuke kill him. Complexity addiction.
    Past that point, Itachi expected Sasuke to get his eyes, awaken EMS and demantle Akatsuki. ( I guess he expected Sasuke to act like he would do himself, which is a wrong assumption. )
    Edo-Itachi, which is past that point, has no real reason to let Sasuke go on the path of a never ending cycle of revenge.

    Although, I agree that Sasuke didn't seemed that much conflicted for it to work.

    Another reson regarding Edo-Itachi is that by that point he had become a follower of the Holy Naruto-Jesus and decided to leave it all to him to sort out.

    Seriously, this is the guy who fully intended to Kotoamatsukami his little brother into protecting the village that ordered the death of his parents/family/clan.

    If Itachi thought Izanami would have worked on Sasuke he would likely have used it.

    He left Sasuke's fate in his hands, but was quick to put him in his place with his messiah tendancies by saying he can't expect to solve everything by himself. And he's bound to fail is he tries.
