Naruto 6 Akatsuki Edition

This blog has the most information I've ever seen on a blog, so if your not into reading a lot then I suggest you try somewhere else.

This blog is about the criminal organization called the Akatsuki, the purpose of this group of S-ranked criminals is to extract Bijuu from Jinchuuriki. Bijuu (Demonic creatures with tails) Jinchuuriki (People who have a Bijuu sealed within them).Their overall goal is to acheive world domination. They usually work in teams of two, the teams are Itachi and Kisame, Hidan and Kakuzu, Deidara and Tobi, but some of the members are not known to be on a team such as the unamed member, Zetsu and the leader. Each of them wear a ring that pocesses a certain meaning, unique to the person that wears it. Some of them have their headbands crossed out, and all of them wear black cloaks with red clouds.

Akatsuki Leader
Ring Meaning: Nothing
Ring Placement: Right thumb
Partner: None or not introduced yet

Characteristics: The Akatsuki Leader is a very mysterious figure, none of the members refer to him by name, instead calling him "leader", his face is rarely shown and he has the respect of his subordinates except Hidan. While the leader has remained mostly anonymous, the cover of chapter 317 depicts him with auburn hair and a glimpse of his lower face shows what appears to be either tattoos or piercings on either side of his nose. He is seen sitting on an odd statue with many tubes winding through it, commenting that Hidan and Kakuzu are always causing trouble. The statue is located in a city much more modern than is common for the series, and has tubes similar to those in the statue winding through its various buildings.

Gender: Male, sometimes he is confused as being a female
Ring Meaning: Blue or green
Ring Placement: Right index finger
Partner: Tobi, but it was Sasori until he died

Characteristics: Deidara is a missing-nin from Iwagakure and the partner of Tobi. A fancy and skillful fighter, Deidara uses special mouths in the palm of each hand to create Exploding Clay known as (Kibaku Nendo). Deidara can make the clay exlpode by saying the command "Katsu".By infusing the clay which chakra and molding it into various form, Deidara can create living explosives to sneak up on opponents, Deidara can even create clones from the clay.

Deidara is assigned to capture the one-tailed beast (Shukaka), which requires capturing Gaara. While he succeeds in this task, Gaara is able to crush one of his arms before being defeated. After the beast is extracted from Gaara's body and a rescue team attempts to retrieve him, Deidara has his second arm severed, though makes sure to find it after he manages to escape. Both of his arms are repaired by Kakuzu, allowing him to return to battle-readiness. After Sasori's death, Tobi is assigned as Deidara's new partner. Deidara gets impatient with Tobi fairly easily, since Tobi rarely pays attention to what he is saying. Tobi also tends to take credit for their work, despite whatever Deidara did.

Itachi Uchiha
Ring Meaning: Scarlet or bloody
Ring Placement: Right ring finger
Partner: Kisame Hoshigaki

Characteristics: Itachi mastered the highest level of sharingan (Mangekyo Sharingan), and he mastered all of the fire jutsus of the Uchiha clan. Itachi Uchiha, a missing-nin from The Leaf Village, he is the partner of Kisame Hoshigaki and the first Akatsuki member to be introduced. Itachi is one of the last remaining members of the Uchiha Clan, the other his brother Sasuke Uchiha. He has caused many events in the series, such as killing the Uchiha Clan single handedly and revealing to Konoha the presence of Akatsuki. Itachi is a master of ninjutsu and genjutsu. As of the moment, Itachi Uchiha is being chased, unknown to him, by Naruto Uzumaki and Sasuke Uchiha later in the manga. Itachi wants his brother Sasuke Uchiha, to kill him when he has enough "hatred".

Kisame Hosigaki
Age: 29
Height: "6,4"
Weight: 182 pounds
Birthday: March 18th
Ring Meaning: South
Ring Placement: Left ring finger
Partner: Itachi Uchiha

Characteristics: Kisame has a shark-like appearance, with sharp triangular teeth, pale blue skin and gill-like facial structures. Kisame is a missing nin from The Mist Village. Kisaame was a member of the Seven Swordsmen of the Mist, Zabuza Momochi and Raiga Kurosuki are the other known members of the group. Kisame and Itachi were assigned to retrieve the Nine Tailed Fox, by getting Naruto. But they failed because Jiraiya stopped them. His name means Demon Shark. Despite his rather brutish appearance and his apparent love for battle, Kisame speaks in a calm and polite manner compared to most of the other members of Akatsuki. Kisame weilds a sword called Samehada (sentient, chakra-absorbing sword), it is a large unique sword that is covered in large scales that shave instead of cut, much like a shark's skin. It also has the ability to absorb any chakra around it, allowing Kisame to literally cut through his opponent's chakra. The amount of chakra Kisame possesses is apparently very large, even by Akatsuki's standards, Neji using the Byakugan says the Kisames chakra is almost as large as The Nine Tailed Fox.

Ring Meaning: Jewel, ball, jade and the king of shogi
Ring Placement: Left thumb
Partner: Deidara

Characteristics: Tobi wears a orange mask with one eye hole on it, in a swirl pattern. He was Zetsu's subordinate until Sasori's death, then he became a full member. Tobi now wears the same ring as Sasori. Tobi's attacks are unknown so far except the fact the he can use a recovering jutsu after a fatal blow. Tobi is reffered to as young, Zetsu called him a "good boy". Tobi's personality is more carefree and goofy much like Naruto. Tobi sometimes annoys Deidara and it ends up as Deidara attacking Tobi in a funny way.

Unamed member
Ring Meaning: White
Ring Placement: Right middle finger
Partner: None or not introduced yet

Characteristics: This member has blue hair with some sort of flower-like accessory in it, but beyond that this member remains a mystery. This member has yet to play a part in the actual storyline as anything other than a shadowy apparition during the sealing ritual, and the only physical appearance of this member is on the cover of chapter 317 of the manga, which shows a distant view of his or her back.

Ring Meaning: Three (refering to the three bladed scythe)
Ring Placement: Left index finger
Partner: Kakuzu (who is killed by Kakashi)

Characteristics: Hidan is a missing-nin from an unknown village and is the second-newest member of Akatsuki, Tobi being the newest. Unlike the other members of Akatsuki, the Akatsuki leader does not seem to have Hidan's respect. Hidan belongs to the Jashin religion, a religion that worships a deity named Jashin and that condemns anything short of slaughter. Because of this, Hidan greatly dislikes needing to capture opponents alive, and makes sure to pray before battles where he cannot kill. As a part of his religion, Hidan owns a charm with an upside-down triangle inscribed inside a circle (the symbol is sometimes drawn right-side up) that he carries on a chain of beads. Hidan prays to this charm before battles and asks that he get nothing short of a kill.

Once a battle has begun, Hidan dislikes being interrupted or being forced to stop the fight, and it takes a great deal of persuasion to get him to comply. After battles, should he have time, Hidan performs a thirty-minute ritual in accordance with his religion, which seems to culminate by stabbing himself in the chest and lying upon the ground.

Although he is a member of Akatsuki, Hidan dislikes many of the formalities reacquired for the allegiance, particularly being partnered with Kakuzu. Most specifically, he dislikes the fact that Kakuzu fights solely for money. Kakuzu also dislikes their partnership, and has little patience for Hidan's time-consuming battle style and rituals. Despite this, the two remain paired together as each is able to use the other's abilities to their advantage. Additionally, Hidan doesn't seem to like the Akatsuki leader and openly disrespects him in front of others. In fact, he doesn't seem to like anyone, and has not been seen showing any respect to anyone except Jashin. He also seems to use incredibly vulgar language at most any time, while always acting in an either very confident or very agitated manner.

Hidan is apparently immortal, having been fatally wounded a number of times and even surviving decapitations while still retaining the ability to speak. Although he can survive dismemberment, Hidan needs to be connected to his body in order to control it. Despite the fact that he cannot die, Hidan openly states before battle that he wishes his opponents will be able to kill him.

Hidan's immortality is the reason for his partnership with Kakuzu, as Kakuzu has killed all of his past partners in fits of rage. Because Hidan cannot die, Kakuzu can attack Hidan all he wants without worrying about finding a new partner. This also allows for a combination of efforts between the two, as Hidan can distract enemies while Kakuzu attacks them from a distance without worrying about Hidan's safety. Kakuzu's partnership also serves as a way for Hidan to be repaired in battle, as Kakuzu's threads can sew any part of Hidan's body back into place, allowing the wounds to heal with time.

In battle, Hidan wields a three-bladed scythe that he uses as a projectile while controlling it with a rope wrapped around his wrist. Although he is capable of striking even the most talented of ninja with it, Hidan claims that the scythe makes him the slowest-attacking member of Akatsuki. The three blades on his scythe are not meant to increase the damage of his attacks, but rather to increase his chances of drawing his opponent's blood. Should the scythe become inconvenient or unavailable for this purpose, Hidan can also use a retractable pike to injure the opponent.

After acquiring some of an opponent's blood and consuming it, Hidan uses his own blood to draw the symbol on his charm on the ground. Once done, Hidan enters the symbol and undergoes a transformation, turning most of his skin black and creating white lines in roughly the same locations as his bones. Combined with his scythe, this transformation gives him the appearance of a Grim Reaper.

Later in the anime Hidan is buried alive by Shikamaru Nara.

Hidan in Grim Reaper form

Ring Meaning: Boar
Ring Placement: Right pinky
Partner: None or not introduced yet

Characteristics: Zetsu is a mysterious missing-nin. Not much is known about him, other than his allegiance to Akatsuki and his function as a spy. His head appears to be enveloped in a large venus flytrap, which can also envelop the rest of his body. The right side of his face and body is black in color while his left side is white in color. To go with this, Zetsu seems to have a split personality, as the black half of his face speaks only in Katakana while the white side uses Kanji and Kana. The two halves also seem to converse with each other, and occasionally differ in opinion, such as whether to allow Tobi to fill Sasori's place in Akatsuki. His eyes are yellow and pupil-less.

Zetsu frequently uses Leech All Creation: Attack Prevention Technique (Hiru Bansh˘: B˘ka no Jutsu?), allowing him to merge with the ground, trees, and other plants to travel long distances fairly quickly. He has also shown the ability to move his body during the sealing ritual, which no other Akatsuki member is capable of. As such, he serves as a lookout during the ritual. In addition to his role as a spy, Zetsu appears to function as Akatsuki's hunter-nin. He is sent to dispose of the corpses of those used for the leader's Shapeshifting Technique, as well as recover the rings of Sasori and Deidara. He performs the former function by devouring the corpses, which fits with his "venus flytrap" theme.

Ring Meaning: North
Ring Placement: Left middle finger
Partner: Hidan

Characteristics: Kakuzu is a missing-nin from Takigakure and Hidan's partner. He and Hidan display the most animosity towards each other out of all members of Akatsuki, neither being very fond of the other's interests. The two often trade barbs with one-another, Kakuzu's usually being better timed than Hidan's. He at one point identified himself as the Treasurer of Akatsuki and he often turns in bounties, even during his missions. Kakuzu is the longest-lived known character in the series, having lived at least since the time of the First Hokage, whom Kakuzu mentions having fought at one point (he does not elaborate on the outcome). Kakuzu uses very unusual techniques in battle. Kakuzu is defeated by Naruto Uzumaki and finished off by Kakashi Hatake. His partner, Hidan, is considered dead by the Leader.

Ring: Jewel, ball, jade and also the king of shogi
Ring position: Left thumb
Partner: Formerly Deidara, Orochimaru before that

Characteristics: Sasori was Deidara's first partner in Akatsuki. A powerful ninja puppeteer, he was a missing-nin from Sunagakure. In the Rescue Gaara arc, he assisted Deidara in his mission to capture Gaara from Sunagakure. While there, he fought against Kankuro, nearly killing him and easily destroying Kankuro's puppets in the process. After Gaara was delivered to the Akatsuki lair, he acted as a rear-guard for the rest of Akatsuki, fighting Sakura and his grandmother Chiyo. This battle turned out to be his last, as he was eliminated by two puppets he designed himself, "Mother" and "Father" (his actual mother and father converted into puppets), which Chiyo had taken possession of after Sasori left the village.

Sasori possessed double agents for Akatsuki in at least two other organizations. He had planted Yura as a spy in the Sunagakure council and Kabuto Yakushi in Orochimaru's retinue, both of which had memory-control jutsu placed on them. Orochimaru undid Sasori's control over Kabuto's memories. At the time of his death, Sasori had not yet captured his demon, and may have not yet known which one he was assigned to. His position was assumed by Tobi. People call him Sasori of the red sands.
