Quote from despair666
This is just a drawn out fight that is pretty lame considering what both these sharingan users have shown us before, its so simplistic where they just keep throwing projectiles at a snake that can change its form, nothing epic or grand like we expect from a big fight in Naruto, 60% of why I read nar ...
The boar reference was kishi's way of showing that Itachi and Sasuke have worked together before. As for the sensing thing they had like almost all of their senses rendered useless do to his Sage tech. Also the boar thing they attempted on Kabuto didnt fail their objective was to get back Sasuke's Katana and we also see that Itachi hit Kabuto with his crow genjutsu.
Im guessing next chapter we are gonna see something similar to how Sasuke defeated Danzo's Izanagi.
