Very true but now I am waiting for Sasuke vs Kakashi, another anticipated fight. I think since chapter 177 they havent meet each other, that´s long time. Their encounter will be awesome. I am waiting for it.
I think the most anticipated fight would have to be Sasuke vs. Itachi, or Sasuke vs. Naruto.
meh Naruto vs. Sasuke has lost its appeal because Naruto is pretty meh right now. Though Kakashi vs. Sasuke is probably on the top of my list, I want Kakashi to diss Sasuke so badly, he really needs someone to put him in his place. And we all know Naruto isn't going to do it
I second that. Naruto vs Sasuke is IMO the most antecipated figth ever
Back in the day, Goku vs. Freiza had one hell of a build-up to it. But as of right now, without a doubt Naruto and Sasuke take the cake.
These have already happened in Naruto but I'd still like to see them:
Hashirama vs Madara (I just wanna see how Madara, the pinnacle of a Uchiha's arsehole, was ripped and it'll provide us with a rough template on how these shenanigan users can be defeated. It'll also silence doubters)
Hanzo vs Pain (Hopefully Hanzo took down AT LEAST one body, maybe more. Must have been a hell of a battle)
As for other mangas/animes:
Kenshiro vs Raoh
Kenshin vs Saito
Kenshin vs Shishio
Goku vs Friezer
Naruto V Sasuke does have a lot of buildup, but i can think of other series that match its buildup. Kishi has done a poor job with both chars since the Hidan/Kakuzu Arc so some of its appeals were lost.
TBH, I personally want to see them team up more. Their friendship was the most beautiful part about the series for me and it was done decently well. Ever since Bonds, I've wanted to see them reunite.
Some of its competitors are/were:
Luffy V Shanks/Blackbeard (One Piece)
Ichigo V Aizen (Bleach)
Goku V Piccolo, Frieza (DragonBall and Dragonball Z respectively)
Kenshin V Shishio (Rourouni Kenshin)
Gon V Killua (HunterXHunter)
Light V L, Near (DeathNote)
Actually, there are a lot of readers, including me who don't anticipate this fight at all ...
They don't want to see the fight, they want the fight to be over, so that Naruto can finally move on because that shit has been dragged way too much already.
That was before Kishi said the Sasunaru fight would be the last of the manga and that Naruto would never move on though
I wanted a Kakashi VS Sasuke for awhile but now, i believe that Sasuke is too strong for him. I would like to see a rematch of Sasuke VS Killer bee
I'd have to agree with those who said Goku vs Freiza, although Cell vs Gohan was pretty badass, especially once SSJ2 kicked in.
As for Naruto...I'm really hoping for a Kakashi vs Someone strong fight. Kakashi needs some more development, and some more wins. What was the last major fight he actually won, after Zabuza, anyway?
In Naruto. Naruto v Sasuke. But there are so many others that I wud like to see, like, Madara v hashirama, Hanzou v Pein
In Bleach. Aizen v anyone else. As long as Aizen pawns the shit out his opponent.
Akiyama vs Yokoya in Liar Game is much more intense, in my opinion. So far they clashed twice, and
Kenshin V Shishio is definitely better than Naruto vs Sasuke in matters of buildup.
But who knows? There is still time for a buildup!
I really want to see a sharingan Vs byakugan fight. Kish put so much into the sharingan and rinnegan that the byakugan looks awful.
I don't think Naruto vs Sasuke has been that big really. It's been anticipated for some time now, but it's not the most anticipated fight ever I guess, it's not enough real build up around it imo. Itachi vs Sasuke was pretty sick though, people were screaming for it ever since Sasuke revealed his ambition.
