but guys,we still don't know if Lee can use his gates now,nor if he is able to open more than 5. we know almost nothing of him now that he is chunin,but I don't think he(as he is now) can defeat the 3 who fought against kimimaro in volume 24: Naruto powered by 9-tails,lee himself with a gate and gaara. even with 5 gates he could nothing in front of gaara,and there gaara was stronger.nevertheless,Kimi won against them 3. FACE IT,KIMI WINS!
Well, lee did manage to use his gates when he fought kimimaru before but in turn he only used one. I would think he is still perfectly capable of using at least the 5 gates he could use before. I still don't think that is quite enough to win against kimimaru. Kimimaru showed he was just too lethal and resistant. Even when he was having trouble against drunk lee he easily dealt with it by having bones could out of his body. Kimimaru was overwhelmingly fast back in the day to the point where keeping up with lee was not an issue, I doubt even now speed would be an issue for kimimaru. Once kimimaru gets his taijutsu running there is not reason for lee to be able to hurt him significantly either and even attacking should actually hurt lee as it is unlikely that he won't meet spiky bones halfway through a punch or kick. Kimimaru has every advantage here....
It could one of the Sound 4 commenting on it. Or Orochimaru talking to Kabuto about it. It could be anything but fact is it wasn't mentioned that he slowed down.
Which shows that he wasn't that much faster than Lee. And this is a badly injured Lee who have shown to have slowed down as opposed to Kimimaro.

He only activated cursed seal partially against drunken Lee and a few moments afterwards Lee was basically beaten. It wasn't until Gaara got Kimimaro with his Desert Coffin before Kimimaro has gone full SC1 Mode.
This is what SC1 Kimi looks like:
Also, look at what Gai said:
From what he's saying on this page I come to the conclusion that Drunken Lee managed to knock out Gai in this restaurant... so its entirely possible that drunken Lee is actually equal or stronger then Gates Lee.

Hard to say but I doubt drunken lee is faster or stronger in a sense when compared to his Gates. His movements are probably slight faster and stronger but I would say that it's the unpredictable part that makes it dangerous. But overall, I doubt that it is even close to what 5 Gates Lee can accomplish.
drunk lee can't be predicted thats what gave Kimmi problems drunk lee was not capable of hurting him but was just being anonying so he used a bit of curse seal to increase his speed a tiny bit so he would be able to hit him
the curse seal actully hurts the body as well so the seal was not helping Kimmi's condition
Kimmimaro was not supposed to be able to move its a fact Kabuto and Kimmimaro said he was not supposed to be capable of moving yet he was his body was easily weaker
yet Kabuto was quite sure that Kimmimaro could handle anyone the life sent and he did
honestly your grasping at straws here Lee with 5 gates could not break Gaara's defence and Kimmi's defence is stronger
Orochimaru said that no physical attack can destory Kimmi's skeleton and Orochimaru is almost never wrong
but think about it: chunin Lee(as he is now) with 5 gates must be incredible strong,but Kimimaro > fox's chakra-Naruto
+ Lee 1 gate and drunk + gaara. that gaara was stronger than how he was when he defeated 5 gates Lee. then this new Lee would have to be stronger than someone who was stronger than how he was when he had defeated 5 gates lee. even if lee can defeat these 3,he can't win against kimi,who owned them.
When was it ever shown that CS actually harms the body? The only time such a thing was shown when Sasuke forced a Chidori.
That still doesn't show that he slowed down or anything. Because like I said, he showed nothing that suggest he was slower than he normally was.
Proof that Gaara's defense is weaker and you have your point.
Almost never wrong = he can't still be wrong.

The difference in speed is definitely there and it is in Lee's favour IMO...but does that count if Lee's power will not penetrate Kimi's bone armor? Because if Lee will use the gates and he fails to kill Kimi, then the game is over...we've seen that Kimi can pull a jutsu ou of nowhere, and at a pretty high scale, so his stamina and chakra levels are pretty nice
As much as I like Lee, I cant see him win in any scenario.
His only power is Taijutsu yet it is nullified by Kimi's Kekkai Genkai. Even opening the gates won't have any effect, sure it will make lee faster and stonger but to what avail? On the other hand Kimi is a letal close, mid and long ranges.
Kimi takes this.
Kimi went CS1 against Gaara, not Lee.Quote:
Naruto is hardly a medical journal, if Kishi even acknowledged the existence of concussions/brain trauma in this manga everyone would be dead. Gaara didn't have any sort cranial injury after Lee Hidden Lotused him. We have yet to see who's bodily defense is stronger Gaara or Kimi so until them I'm going to assume they're equal. Kimi has shown to be able to create a complete layer of virtually indestructible bone under his skin, that would surely protect his brain from injury from almost, if not, everything Lee can throw at him especially a regular kick to the noggin.Quote:

Who's to say that Lee won't open the gates and then get buzzed? Hmmm, maybe he won't. If he's drunk out of his mind he won't give a rat's ass about opening all 8 gates. Although I doubt Lee knows how to open them all. If he's not only drunk, but opens up to the 7th gate in that stupor, just as the biblical allegory, opening the 7th gate = all hell breaks loose. An unpredictable Lee with the power of 7 chakra gates opened equals on dead Kimimaro.
