Superb! I liked every part of the tournament. It was flawless.
Good. I liked almost every part of the tournament.
Above average. There were more positives than negatives.
Below average. There were many bad moments although some good.
Bad. The tournament sucked on every level, not much was good about it.

If you actually believe that Bee can react to Minato teleporting to attack Raikage, it's not that farfetch to think that he was actually aiming Minato at the same time since the tentacle is thick enough to push both guy. Even if that's your point, it is still different for Sasuke since Raikage actually moved behind him while Bee was already behind Minato.

Not necessarily since Sasuke had extra time to react with those 2 steps(if it is actually two steps) and Raikage's chop wasn't necessarily done as fast as the punch.
I'm not sure if you're implying that it's not believable that Bee reacted to Minato's teleportation, but considering that he did it again, I don't see how it's not believable.Quote:
We saw how close Sasuke was to the Raikage, right? And we saw how close the Raikage was to Minato, right? The distance that the Raikage moved to get to Minato is probably comparable to the distance he moved to get behind Sasuke, considering how close they were. Heck, it wouldn't be unreasonable for him to have traveled still less of a distance, since they were so close. It's sorta fuzzy when you're talking about speeds the likes of which these guys are showing, but he's damn close to Sasuke in the beginning, and he moves fast enough that Sasuke loses sight of him. I don't see how the reaction times aren't at least comparable, considering he moved in a straight line (so there's nowhere else for Minato to have to react to), and he started out farther from Minato than he did from Sasuke.Quote:
Basically, yes, the two situations are different, but Minato's reaction doesn't shit on Sasuke's, considering how close the Raikage got to him, despite the distance they initially were from each other, and how quickly Sasuke coats Susanoo with Amaterasu after losing sight of the Raikage.
Edit: For the reaction argument. Imagine that instead of covering Susanoo with Amaterasu, Sasuke has Hiraishin and instead uses Hiraishin. This is basically the argument that xXan is expressing. Sasuke did indeed show impressive reaction times, he just doesn't have Hiraishin. If instead of covering Susanoo with Amaterasu, he uses Hiraishin, what do you think happens to the Raikage?

Raikage was initially that close to Minato due to Minato being unprepared. The next time when he already experienced Raikage's speed, he reacted even faster than he initially did. Like you said both situations are different and there's no implication that Raikage's chop is as fast as his fastest punch. Not to mention that Sasuke used part of the time where Raikage disappeared from sight to prepare his defense. If Raikage had charged straight in, Sasuke wouldn't even have that time.
