No, there are only 10 rings and Oro still has one of them, so there can only be 9 members.

Anyway, anyone have that pic at the end of pt1 to compare to this pic (cover). Did kishi imagine akatsuki differently after his break from pt1 to pt2?

I recall the sillouhettes were quite different in shapes...
Ch. 238:
Spoiler:


From left to right:

Kisame - Obvious
Kakuzu - Now that we've seen all of them, it's clear that nobody is quite this tall. I think Kakuzu is the closest match.
"Purple" - I'm guessing based on the protustion that could be his/her flower.
Deidara(above) - Obvious from his speech pattern
Itachi(below) - Matches his profile in the next panel
Sasori - Obvious from his hair and stature
Hidan - Process of elimination. His hairstyle isn't right but it's close enough.
Leader - The only one whose hair fits.
Zetsu - Based on his "evil" speech and shape

I donít think it was said Wind was the strongest Offensively, rather is the best at mid range attack. Meaning Is not good for Close range, this will suit very well Naruto given that he only has Close Range Attacks at his disposal.

its been a some time since I feel that Naruto will do some improvement in his skills, and I greetaful for this.
I'm somewhat surprised that Wind, of all the elements, is not the long-range attack one.

About the Naruto/Kyuubi chakra thing, I remember some random factoid about Wolverine from the X-men:

Wolverine has a healing factor as well as an adamantium skeleton, which helps him absorb impact as well as increase his offensive abilities (metal claws).

When the skeleton was forcibly removed, his healing factor boosted something like a hundredfold.

It was revealed that he was actually suffering from adamantium poisioning, which forced the healing factor to constantly work.

We've also established that the Kyuubi chakra, when uncontrolled, can overload and potentially kill Naruto.

So, Naruto's chakra is actively and consistently working in place of/in conjuction with the seal to stop the two energies from overmixing.

Thoughts?

Errr, Let me see If i got that, Maybe Naruto true chakra potential can't suffice because his constantly using portion of it to help his body reject/protect himself from Kyuby?

I don't think the tail goes that deep with Naruto, but it could be a possibility that the seal or/and body protecting Naruto from Kyubys Chakra have an negative effect on Naruto overall growth or maybe something like Gaara, that suffered From Imsonia.

Like a theory I got- Been a container of Shukaku Gaara suffered from insomnia, so maybe Been a Container of Kyuby causes, Dumbness (Of course Naruto fans this is a joke)

off-topic: I loved that Wolverine crossover, and I would love maybe someday we could talked a little about american Comic books, my PM is always open

I might have missed this part of the discussion but who does everyone think is on the team Tsunade has formed to combat Akatsuki?

People like:
Asuma
Neji
Gai
Jihrya (sorry about the spelling, i drank some wine tonight)
Kakashi
Danzou

All these characters are ones that I think might be potential members of this squad. Who would you say are the biggest baddest toughest ninjas that Tsunade has assembled.?

edit. Hell, maybe it is even the thing that Asuma wanted to talk to Kakashi about but didn't because Kurenai appeared. Maybe she wasn't selected to be part of the group and couldn't hear about it.

1. But Kakashi can

2. But Jiraya can

3. Ok I'll give you that one

4. Please no more new characters at this point, especially not 20 at a time. We've barely seen what the old favorites can do.

But as Rurik pointed out, the "supersquad" thing has been done, and those guys got thrashed pretty hard after a brief introduction. If there are 20 new monks, I expect it to go down in a similar fashion.

We don't know how much Asuma is capable of doing. The last encounter was a bit of a surprise act and not much happened. He is the Jounin son of Sandaime. It is highly possible that he was affected by the (grand)father/son strength relationship as well. At least, he should be capable of becoming really strong. He had a dark (or unknown) past, maybe, in addition to his lying back attitude, that was one of the reasons that originally held him back. It is even possible that since the death of Sandaime, he completely overcame his issues (if he has) and improved himself quite a bit. And lastly, he is a wind type that seems to have an advantage over the water type (assuming Kisame is water-type).

Now that the assumption of yondaime being the akatsuki leader has been disproven, I think I know who the leader is; Nawaki.

what do you guys think? Don't say Ichigo, he has yellow hair also.

The other unknown person next to the leader is (probably) the girl with blue hair right....could it be Dan (Tsunade's old boy friend's) sister? Other then Dan we havent seen anyone with blue hair. And i think the hair colours even match...

If Kishi really makes that leader dude (Ichigo) then it would really really shock me ..

how can u tell his other arm is still there?

No wonder Deidara Did not mind whe his Arms where blown off.

I think he only has his right arm at the moment

his left arm got completely crushed by gaaras desert coffin.

His right arm (the one with the ring) only got blown off by kakashi which tobi found later on

So his left arm (if hes still has one) should not have a mouth at the palm (or maybe not)

maybe zetsu has a collection of bodies (like kabuto), and he just gave one to Deidara, though i dont think you need a tsunade caliber medical nin to heal/attach a arm

Deidara's Found his Arm, So I think thatís probably his real arm, also I said this:

I don't know in Naruto how difficult it is to Do this type of medical healing, but knowing Akatsuki, this medic (if its exist) could be as good as Tsunade.

Practically what Iím saying that I don't think that Akatsuki would have sub-par medic-nin.

It looks like there is a kunoichi in Akatsuki, she must be pretty strong seeing how she's not paired up with anybody. Unless she's AL's personal assistant.

I don't think Akatsuki has a medical ninja although I could be wrong because Sasori gave Kabuto to Orochimaru and Kabuto's skills are only best by Tsunade who spent a life time mastering her craft (and even then she isn't that much better).

I think the reason why Deidara has back his arms are either:

- Some regeneration jutsu based on his genes and such. Remember this is a guy who has mouth for hands and junk.

- The MS. Remember that MS manipulates time and space and it won't be too surprising if there is a MS jutsu that can somehow get a Deidara of the past as the present one. Very complex and farstretch though.

- The leader. We know that the leader is a master of all sort of clone techniques so maybe he has something similiar to Orochimaru mind transfer jutsu and the one where Itachi/Kisame was swapped in another body except it is permanent.

i just read chp 317 and it was interesting. by the looks of things it looks like tobi is a little coward. doesnt that personality belong to obito, because in the kakashi story it kinda looked like he was a chicken. just speculating

The tobi = obito theory has been around since tobi first appeared, imo it is more possible than the yondaime = akatsuki leader
