Are you planning on watching Naruto? The way people are getting hyped about Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, it is inevitable for people who never watched Naruto, to have a craving to watch it once. I know you might be terrified by simply taking a look at the long episode list of five seasons.
Therefore, today I will talk about Sasuke Uchiha and Itachi Uchiha. I hope their story will fill your heart with excitement. And you will be more excited to watch why the Uchiha brothers play such an important role in Naruto’s life.
Relationship between Sasuke and Itachi:
Sasuke and Itachi were brothers. Itachi was the older brother when Sasuke was the younger one. The age gap between these two brothers was around 6 years. But they were really close to each other.
Itachi used to practice different Chakras and combat techniques to become the most fierce ninja of his time because he suffered in his childhood during the Third Shinobi World War. He loved Sasuke dearly and he always kept him close so that nothing could harm him.
Yet, he never taught Sasuke anything but appreciated him because he was very enthusiastic. Itachi always performed the perfect techniques in his exams that made him the first graduate of post war Ninja Academy. Therefore, Sasuke tried to mirror everything his brother used to do.
But Itachi encouraged him to do whatever he wanted to. He even forced their father to appreciate Sasuke so that he never felt neglected.
The Tragedy between Sasuke and Itachi:
Unfortunately, Sasuke’s cheerful childhood didn’t last long. Things went downhill when Itachi killed the whole Uchiha clan. But he couldn’t gather up the courage to kill Sasuke. Instead of killing Sasuke, he confessed about the massacre to his little brother.
Itachi told Sasuke to hate him, become stronger and defeat him. Sasuke followed what his brother had told him and excelled in every Chakra to become the best of team 7. At this stage, he met Naruto. While Sasuke was busy practicing his Great Dragon Fire Jutsu, Naruto used to be jealous of how he used to get all the attention of the whole team.
Therefore, their relationship started as a form of rivalry to become the best ninja. But after being through a lot, Sasuke joined Naruto’s side to save their village.
After a while Itachi came to look for Naruto and he was a member of the terrorist organization Akatsuki. Itachi used to think that Naruto’s clan- Uzumaki was behind the previous war. To take revenge, he tried to defeat Naruto, but Sasuke helped Naruto to fight back.
I will not disclose what happened at the end of the tunnel of ‘Sasuke Uchiha and Itachi Uchiha’ story. All I have mentioned above is just the tip of the iceberg of a legendary story full of emotion, power, and revenge.
Although it wasn’t a happy ending between the two brothers, their flashbacks about their childhood were always full of joy and harmony. And even after his death, Itachi showed his affection for his brother.
