@notcensored: The point was that Shin is garbage, and he is. Dude weak as hell to really be doing anything to Naruto or Sasuke. This same guy who has 30 MS could barely hold his own against a base form Sakura.
That whole encounter was full of antifeats. Naruto shouldn't have ever gotten hit. Sasuke shouldn't have either, and even if he did he wouldn't be put down by like 6 kunai. Shit is just crazy, they wrote the fight to make it seem like anybody can stab Naruto with a kitchen knife.
