Bad. The tournament sucked on every level, not much was good about it.
Other (post reason)
He was impressed with Bee's movements.
Raikage needed to be saved, so that's his business. I don't think Bee goes around saving Raikage from non-threats.
That isn't necessarily true since Bee could have been aiming for Minato as well for all we know. Judging from the way Minato's body is positioned before and after Bee's tentacle moved in, we can also say that Minato dodge the tentacle from hitting him.
Againt Bee, Minato obviously didn't want to hurt him: heck, he didn't even look at the guy after warping him.
If Minato appears above Bee, then IMO, there's nothing he could've done to save himself in that occasion.
And IMO, Sasuke put the amaterasu shield in anticipation to Raikage's attack, or Kishi screwed up with the reaction of the other characters watching their fight.
He was impressed with his bravery and his holding of something important
Again, for someone that was threatened, he was surprisingly eager to give it another go. I guess he's just suicidal like that. I also think it's common sense to counter an attack (unless you're Hidan), but I guess it's not. Considering that Minato was at the very least a Kage candidate at the time, it's not outside of the realm of reason for Bee to assume that he was readying a powerful attack.Quote:
I suppose Bee could've been attempting an attack at Minato that just happened to strike him after he teleported on top of the Raikage, and just happened to knock the Raikage away from a strike. The main point I was making was that Minato's reaction to the Raikage's attack and his reaction to Bee's counter were different. Reacting to a head-on attack and a blindside attack are different. It's not necessarily really more impressive to counter a straight-on attack than a blindside one, even if the straight-on attack is faster.
Considering its only 2 steps and the fact that Minato noticed him from 1cm and Sasuke from way before Raikage was even close to him (even behind his back) and it things get balanced out.
