This one was also powerful, both in the manga and in the anime:
The first scene I saw of Sasuke that I really liked was this.
I was like, what? I thought he was going to give up his body to Orochimaru. Because he said neither him or Orochimaru were strong enough to kill Itachi. (I thought some different plot twist would save him from that fate, not that he would attack Orochimaru out of the blue.)

But thank you very much for posting those and reminding me that I'm slow! And have you sen BEAN's avatar/signature combo?? It's from those and it is so pwnage I just can't believe it!!
And the end of the line shot is awesome as well of course. Itachi is practically covered in gore. It shows how intense that battle really was. I luvs it...<3
I've always liked Jiraiya's entrance, not only was it humorous, but it was filled with poses only the great Jiraiya could pull off.
And of course the the super pervert...
After seeing this, you had to know Jiraiya was going to be an awesome character.
And now, my contribution for tonight (this is a looooong effing post ):
And then these:
The visual progression is absolutely amazing. We see the first panel and start thinking OH SHIT! It's real!! It really happened!! We see Itachi's almost expressionless face, and Sasuke clutching his eye in pain, then the shot where it really starts to sink in, when we see the blood hitting the ground (have I mentioned yet that Sasuke has creepy, ugly feet? I think I have, but if I haven't, then yes, his feet are creepy and ugly. lol).
Flip and see Itachi calmly lecturing his little brother...rubbing his error in his face while Sasuke is still too shocked by the pain to have fully realized yet what has happened. This is where the Itachi fans (and Sasuke haters) all cheer uproariously. Take a moment to see a nice overhead of Zetsu's shocked reaction to the fight (note that we only see Zetsu in the panel, not what he sees going on below), and then move down to see Sasuke has removed his hand and yes, he's bleeding profusely from the empty socket. We then see Itachi's bloody index, middle finger, and thumb; his hand lightly clutching what we know is Sasuke's eye. Contrast that with what Sasuke is seeing; his own bloody palm. He's beginning to realize it now.
The next page: The money shot. Oh my god. This is where the the use of sound effects is superb. Two heavy, gasping breaths. You can see, even feel Sasuke's panic as it washes over him.
But it's not over yet. "Now for the other one." Itachi at his most insanely ominous and terrifying. Oh yes. Sasuke scrambles to protect himself with the only available method, the curse. Though slightly surprised, Itachi isn't fazed. He shifts his position to avoid an imminent attack.
Sasuke is rattled, pulling out his 'shield', while Itachi stands some distance away, calmly awaiting whatever Sasuke is going to throw at him. We forgot about the eye for a second, but Itachi didn't. He has come fully prepared. This is where we see the depth of Itachi's cold calculation. Though he didn't know he was about to face his brother that day in a battle for eternal light or darkness, he still had a nice sterile jar at the ready up his sleeve. Damn Itachi. Just damn. I love you so much right now. He drops the eye in and seals the jar, all the while calmly scrutinizing Sasuke. Sasuke watches him, clutching his empty socket once again.
Twist. "This is the gap between our power," he says, scolding, taunting, ultimately distracting Sasuke from realizing he's sneaked up in his blind spot. "And the gap between our eyes," says his clone from behind as he clutches a stunned Sasuke. Sasuke was taken compleatly off guard and doesn't even get to finish his curse before Itachi is on him once again. Shit. He's coming. His bloody fingers once again approach. They even twitch, as though showing Itachi's ultimate anticipation. He's almost got them both...
Sasuke is horror struck as Itachi's fingers inch closer.
Itachi's fingers make contact with Sasuke's eye. Note the sound effect. Poke.
But then, Itachi is surprised. Sasuke uses his last ditch effort to get free, fully activating his curse and releasing snakes to attack Itachi and his clone. He screams. But Itachi still has him. Or does he? The panels start to deteriorate and reality starts to dawn on us.
The world is cracking.
Oh shit, the world collectively thinks. It was a f*cking Tsukuyomi. And as we see Sasuke standing alone, normal, clutching his unharmed eye, we collectively ask ourselves, what the f*ck.
Next page: Two panting breaths, and Sasuke scowling defiantly at us. But he falls, exhausted and out of breath.
Back to Zetsu, who announces Itachi's victory. His other half is still as confused as we are. But as they look down on the scene, smart Zetsu assures stupid Zetsu, and us all, that Sasuke has, "eaten a Tukuyomi," and that he (Zetsu of course) "will be snacking on him in no time." This is where we would have paused to laugh if we did not see Itachi's knee hit the ground in the next panel. OH SHIT! Smart Zesu realizes that he was too quick to judge, and that Itachi is the one who is hurting. And Itachi looks absolutely pissed for the first time we've ever seen. Oh shit.
Sasuke starts to get back up and Itachi just can't quite believe it. Oh man, that smirk. This is where Sasuke returns to the smirking little shit that Sasuke fans just love and Sasuke haters abhor. Pandemonium simultaneously erupts across the planet as Zetsu confirms the scenario. It's Sasuke's turn to look down his nose at his opponent.
And I'll stop right there because this is like the longest. Post! EVER! I really didn't mean to go that far, but I started and had to keep going until there was good break in the tension!! O___O
GEEZ!!! Scenes like that are why I just f*cking LOVE Naruto, and why millions of us drool for it every week. CRACK I TELL YOU!! CRAAAAACK!!!

My favourite has to be that whole page dedicated to the activation of Obito's sharingan. I don't even think Sasuke got a whole page did he?
And nope, Sasuke only got the top of a page.
[spoiler_] xxxxxxx [_/spoiler] -here you go, without _. or click on advance and one of the icons is spoiler
you can post image, [img_] xxxxxxxxxxxx [_/img], without _, and x present text/img
and example, works only if you remove _ from command inside 
and a result
so now if you do that i will remove pics from my post, i dont want to take credit for your idea
Kusachu -you can use my explanation and put it in first post so people who come here and post can put pics directly in spoilers and not links peace and what do you say on my idea
