We all know that June 9th was on Thursday. But did you guys know that this past Thursday was also Itachi Uchiha’s birthday? Well now you do!
A promise is a promise!
Now, If you’ve seen the Naruto series, you probably know that Itachi-kun has done some questionable things. Like killing his entire clan (with the exception of Sasuke), for example. Or brutally mind-raping his little brother. Basically, he was a bad guy. Or maybe he wasn’t. Here’s three facts that might change your mind about Itachi Uchiha.
He Loved The Leaf Village
Itachi loved the leaf village so much that he was willing to do anything and follow any order to keep the village safe. The Uchiha were planning a coup d’tat against Konoha which would have ended in another war. In order to stop this and protect the village, Itachi murdered his whole clan. Itachi went from being a prodigy who would have rightly earned his place as the Fifth Hokage to a rogue ninja hated by every one. His sacrifices are something we as normal humans are unable to comprehend. Just imagine the pain that his heart must have felt while slaughtering his own clan-mates, his own comrades. He lost his clan, his pride, his love, seeded hatred in his brother, and both his best friends committed suicide (Shishui and Kisame). The extent of the pain Itachi endured and his will to protect the same village which despised him is beyond comprehension.
He Cared For His Little Brother
Okay, so Itachi might not be Brother of the Year, but everything he did to Sasuke, good or bad, was for a reason. Itachi always loved Sasuke in a brotherly way and often showed it when they were younger. When Itachi was forced to massacre the Uchiha clan, he saved his brother’s life. The whole revenge thing was planned so that Sasuke would be the one to kill him in the future and get the glory and techniques to be able to kill Madara. So in a way, while doing everything he did, he was thinking of Sasuke.
He’s An Uchiha
Duh. Come on guys, this one had to be expected. With their awesome powers and that badass sharingan, Itachi and Uchihas in general are a force to be reckoned with.
