Ok so despite everything I have said people still don’t think Itachi is the strongest. Technically Madara is the strongest but Itachi is easily 4th strongest, only outclassed by Madara, Obito, and Sasuke.
What makes Itachi so powerful is the Sharingan. I’m sure we all know what it does but what people don’t know is that it’s so powerful that nothing can beat it. It was stated numerous times that nothing can beat the Sharingan. And this is just referencing anyone using the Sharingan. Now imagine that same Sharingan being used by an Uchiha, aka the clan the Sharingan was meant for. Already soloing weak shit like Dragon Ball, TTGL, and Saint Seiya.
Let’s take a look at the fight between Kakashi and Zabuza. Zabuza’s sword is special. Take a look at this video:
Listen closely to what he says. He says that “Zabuza Sword cannot be beat”. He didn’t say it can only be beat by superior ninjutsu, can only be beat by the Sharingan or anything of that nature. Fuck he didn’t even say another Zabuza Sword can beat it. It simply cannot be beat. Kakashi, who isn’t even an Uchiha, managed to not only beat this unbeatable weapon with his Sharingan, which is only in ONE EYE by the way, but also not have too much trouble doing it. So if half the power of a basic Sharingan used by a non-Uchiha can beat this unstoppable weapon, imagine a double Mangekyo Sharingan used by one of the most talented Uchiha to ever exist. Now we are stomping even more weak trash like Umineko, To Aru, and Tenchi Muyo!
And the Sharingan, even the half-powered one used by Kakashi, can copy ANYTHING. Yugi summoned Exodia? Sharingan copies. King of Games becomes the King of Lames. Beerus is trying to hit you with Hakai? Sharingan copies. Now you have erased a god of destruction. Kami Tenchi is omnipotent? Sharingan copies. And since only Uchihas can beat Uchihas (this was stated NUMEROUS TIMES), Itachi would be above omnipotent and defeat Kami Tenchi. And this is with a normal single magatama Sharingan.
Oh but the Sharingan isn’t just for offense! It also provides the user with the Susanoo, the ultimate defense. And since it’s been stated numerous times to be the ultimate defense even without going Perfect Susanoo, a normal Susanoo is already above piss-poor defenses like Imagine Breaker, Gold Experience Requiem, Naofumi Iwatani’s shield, Dispel Bound, and Light Hawk Wings. So if you thought “kill him before he copies me”, think again. Can’t get through that defense.
And as I mentioned, it’s been stated numerous times that only Uchihas can beat Uchihas. Also Genjutsu is completely overpowered and can affect anyone with chakra, which is basically anything in existence. Itachi managed to defeat the Living Tribunal with a mere Genjutsu. It wasn’t even a strong one. It was a basic Genjutsu that Uchihas learn in their first week of training. Didn’t even need the Sharingan although it’s implied he used it just for overkill. Itachi has only ever lost once and that was to Sasuke, another Uchiha. Itachi was so overpowered that NO ONE could stop him except for another Uchiha. And since only Uchihas can beat Uchihas it basically means that Itachi is above Nagato, who is stated to be stronger in his true body than when he is using the Six Paths of Pain, which are six omnipotent bodies since they use the Rinnegan, a Dojutsu literally made for a god. Keep in mind that most verses don’t even have a true omnipotent. And ones that do merely have one. Itachi is above someone who is above six true omnipotents.
So while Itachi isn’t the strongest, he is without question the 4th strongest. Madara, Obito, and Sasuke are above him. Any other real and fictional character is so far beneath him.
I hope this clears up some confusion about Itachi’s true power. Any questions please let me know.

Dream: Last anime I will be covering is Gankutsuou: Count of Monte Cristo. Will start watching it tomorrow. Not sure how much longer I can keep myself up at this point.
Feb 7, 2020 5:19:21 GMT
Taka: Depending on my energy, I can watched up to 2 AM. Usually with work, I fall asleep on anime series that don't have a lot of action.

Master Menos: Finally got out of the fast food job. It was a graceful exit, but to be honest, I'll miss some of those guys. Got a sprained ankle from it since September, so I'll finally focus on healing that back at the family home.

HungryWorld: Well if anyone remembers what happened to Pingu in the City, with it being joke 10/10 scored on MAL just to get it into the top 10 anime... well now is Ishuzoku Reviewers' turn. Seems that in response to Funimation's cancel people boosted the score hard.
Feb 11, 2020 2:11:38 GMT
Taka: What? That sounds so weird.
Feb 11, 2020 5:36:23 GMT
Master Menos: It's damn awesome to be honest. It shot to 1st Place!

Dream: On the subject of MAL, it looks like the admin are planning to tweak their scoring system for titles to reduce the likelihood of voters artificially inflating the ranking of certain titles.

Master Menos: My V-Day present will be belated this year because I "Had some trouble with ol' Johnny." (That's your hint.)

Dream: The joys of adulthood. Joking aside, plan to at least attempt to wrap up Gankutsuou sometime early to mid next week so I can get done with my Funi voted titles. Afterward, not doing any more voting for a while considering how long this had been taking.
Feb 15, 2020 16:50:30 GMT
Dream: Done with Gankutsuou. Will be working to get a review up for it by sometime tonight.
Feb 16, 2020 20:57:26 GMT
Taka: Great job, Dream! I should do some reviews, too.
Feb 17, 2020 5:24:39 GMT
Dream: Looks like MAL's currently down due to the site getting hit by a major denial-of-service attack, just as a heads up.
Feb 18, 2020 17:55:23 GMT
Taka: I added 2 polls tonight. Also, I wonder why MAL was down. Crunchyroll also had it, too.
Feb 20, 2020 4:05:24 GMT
Dream: Not sure about Crunchyroll. For MAL, the DoS attacks may have been retaliation by those who dabbled into manipulating the site's scoring system for certain anime titles. The admin on MAL announced they would be overhauling the system to prevent said...

Dream: ...manipulation last week.
