Manga Musings: Sasuke vs Itachi in Masashi Kishimoto’s Naruto

One of the most iconic fight scenes in the manga medium is the one that takes place between Sasuke Uchiha and Itachi Uchiha. There is so much angst and tragedy that surrounds these two brothers that when their time came to settle their issues with their fists and awesome ninja badassry, I was exceedingly excited, more so because Itachi is one of my favourite characters in the series. Yet, once the fight arrived and unfolded upon the coarse little pages of the volume, I found myself feeling disappointed and somewhat unsatisfied by their battle. At least at first.
