  • Shikamaru with another brilliant battle.

    I just love watching smart battles like these, you just never know what to expect, you can try to predict three steps ahead but you can just never guess what else was coming. Shikamaru went from looking like he was going to get destroyed to completely turning the tables in a matter of minutes, his battle planning is just brilliant, how he controlled Tayuya's summons was brilliant and how he broke his own finger to get out of Tayuya's illusion just left me in awe. In addition I think this might be the first time we've seen Shikamaru do anything physical like when he punched Tayuya in the gut.
