When raikage use his raige bomb on sasuke, sasuke was already activated his riblet. is that what you called a reaction time.? or it was just a counter on raikage's technique.?
Eh, his reaction to the second attack wasn't worlds apart from his initial reaction. He expected the attack and knew his speed, so he used Hiraishin maybe a little earlier, but the Raikage was still pretty much on him. And again, he started out further from Minato than he did from Sasuke.Quote:
Also, the reaction point is that Sasuke reacted to the movement. Once the Raikage got out of his field of vision, he covered Susanoo with Amaterasu. If he had Hiraishin and kunai spread out, he would have used Hiraishin and moved to another kunai to counter him instead.

You can have a reaction that isn't a counter, but I'm pretty sure you can't counter without reacting, lol
Edit: And come on man, I just expressed my love for you! You don't have to sound like a douche!
Stated by Karin herself. A is insanely fast and Sasuke can't keep up with him.
Granted, he came up with a way to counter A, but it was a defensive counter. He didn't take A's mind into consideration. A was freakin' insane and attacked Sasuke anyway. Sasuke severely underestimated A and got his ass handed to him and would've died had Gaara not intervened. This is not opinion. It's manga fact.

Sasuke was down due to Susanoo's effect, which wouldn't have been an issue had he not used Susanoo. Karin was in the same area of attack and she had no trouble dodging. So Sasuke who is faster and could see where it was coming wouldn't have had any trouble. And again, moments before Sasuke had no trouble dodging Mei's attack even through he couldn't see it. So for him to have trouble actually witnessing it, that makes no sense.
Eyesight isn't muscle movement or reaction. Eyesight is a sense that is as fast as light to every organism with an eyeball. You see something because light reflects off it and enters your eye. Sasuke looking at the bones inches from his face in order to ignite them in Amaterasu is not a feat of speed, agility, or reflexes. Just because he was able to ignite Susano'o in time doesn't mean he's literally faster than A. If he were faster, he would've done an offensive counter instead of a defensive counter. If Sasuke were as fast as claimed, why not whip out his katana, infuse it with lightning, and impale A when he was charging at him? Why not dodge A's attack altogether? Hell, why not just look at A in the eyes and get him in Tsukoyomi? Because he couldn't.
Also, is anyone saying that Sasuke is faster than A?
Thank you all for participating in the tournament and making it a great success in terms of post activity and debate.
