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.
Other (post reason)
In the raw scan, Sasuke states "炎遁" (Enton). That specifically refers to Sasuke's manipulation of existing Amaterasu flames so far, so until further development, it is an enton and not Amaterasu itself. Plus, there are flames on the battlefield for him to manipulate such as on the samurai armor, Ee cutoff arm, and on Gaara's sand when he blocked the first enton. He doesn't need to have it on Susanoo.

Hmm I don't really get the point of the debate, because it is pretty clear that Enton is manipulation of Amaterasu...Enton Kagu Tsuchi was a technique that used the flames from the Susanoo ribs...
Another thing to point out:
The strategy that Jiraiya is using to anticipate Amaterasu involves him looking into Itachi's eyes, which leads him wide open for Tsukuyomi.
Also, IIRC, Amateratsu have always been used and connected on a stationary target or at least one that isn't running around left and right. The only exception to this would be Sasuke who manage to avoid it long enough to use a kawamiri. So even if we were to really ignore all the possibilities of Jiraiya being capable of doing something, why must we assume that Jiraiya needs to stand still to get Amateratsu-ed?
Jiraiya has no prior knowledge to Amaterasu, so you can't assume anything.
In the tournament, jiraiya has no knowledge so it dosen't matter.
Kage bunshin jumps up and Itachi uses the kage bunshin to help him jump higher, even towards a tree. If he reads Jiraiya's handseals, he could predict what Jiraiya will do, especially if JIraiya touches the ground.Quote:
Sasuke knew Amaterasu was coming, though. Plus, he let himself be caught on purpose. Jiraiya wouldn't have the speed that Raikage and Sasuke did to avoid it, not in base mode anyway.
I wonder though, why is saying Itachi was telling the truth about losing to JIraiya allowed, but not saying Itachi is better than Jiraiya due to A >B, B>C, thus A>C? Both are illogical from what we know and have seen, and based on the circumstances.
Moving the hair to block his sight would be pretty hard, since Itachi's prediction ability would make such an attempt know and thus Itachi could act before his sight was actually block. Not to mention blocking Itachi's sight also means that Jiraiya would likely be blocking his own view of Itachi, which would be much more dangerous to do.
