Itachi Uchiha.

Much to my distress, Itachi was not an automatic interest of mine. But that is mostly due to the nature of the series he is from. Naruto prides itself on its suprise plot twists and stunning reveals. Itachi was mentioned early but fans didn't meet him face to face until later. From there on it was a matter of shallowness on my part. He was pretty. I am not proud (but come on I'm using my blog to objectify fictional men, there's nothing new in shallow here.)


~Fanart = Fanservice~

After his intro, his apparent motives and past are revealed and it became hard NOT to like him (from my perspective at least.) He's cold, but there is so much strength and mystique in him that makes up for his lack of affection.



From a young age, Itachi was identified as a prodigy. At age 7 he made Chuunin (think high school senior) and by 13 he was an ANBU leader (special ninja black ops. Like working FBI and CIA together.) Still, at that age he did show a form of fondness for his little brother, Sasuke Uchiha, and had a best friend also within the Uchiha Clan.


~From the Manga~

There really isn't alot I can say about Itachi without blowing some of the biggest (and most fun to read) secrets in the Narutoverse. Though this is a tell-all blog, I loved learning about Itachi-kun so much that I refuse to ruin his arcs. Suffice it to say that Itachi is an intriguing and surprising character. To put it another way...one of my criteria may not truly fit him. And no, it's not the hair, it really is long. He keeps it in a ponytail but hides it with the high collar of his Akatsuki cloak.
