[Manga] Hidan's sycthe

Alright, here's what I don't get. For Hidan to perform his ritual, does the blood absolutely have to come from his sycthe? Looking at the fight Kakashi was just in, from chapter 334, there has to be some of his blood laying around somewhere. He could just use that instead. All he needs is a drop.

No, so far there's nothing indicating that the blood must come off of hiden's Sycthe... however, while kakashi did recieve some damage it doesn't look like it's the type of damage that would spill blood... not to mention the fact that their is no way to distinguish between whose blood is on the ground... hiden could end up picking up some of partner... not to mention he may kinda have to drop his guard a bit to scrape the blood off the ground... or maybe, he just thinks that's disgusting =P

Though i do question why Hiden uses a three bladed sycthe... i mean, i know the reason it has three blades is to increase the chance of a hit, but if it's main purpose is to simply cut the enemy then why doesn't hiden use a simplier weapon like a spiked whip... It would have similar range, be much faster and since the thing is covered in spikes, their is a much higher chances of it causing a cut... it doesn't have to be the whip though, i'm sure their are some other weapons that we can think of that would be faster and have a better chanse of drawing some blood...

on second thought though, he could always plan to use his ritual as a back up... So the reason he uses a sycthe is because when he attacks he plans on killing you with it, but if he manages to score a hit, but not a decieve one, he can fall back on his ritual to finish off his opponent instead... even if it does mean working with a slower weapon... kind of a trade off i guess....

(not to mention a sycthe betters fits the whole grim reaper thing he's going for)

Hidan seems to be the type of person who likes Style, or stuff thats not needed and over the top... Like Deidra and his(lol almost typed her) art in the style sense. Hidan's ritual has that flashy act thing going on. You have been judged, ect ect...

Seems he's able to make his scythe alot bigger anyway like for range n stuff he could hit a target that was alot bigger or further away.

Maybe it wouldn't be so good close range? >.<

The fact that it's long and has 3 spikes means nothing but that his skill level is so low he would never be able to cut someone short range. But even if he could, it's all just to improve chance of cutting someone...which is basically all he needs.
The point is, without his religion, he doesn't seem capable of shit. He relies on a huge scyte, immortality and mediocre battle skills to be able to catch them off guard (I mean who the hell gives a shit about a cut?..before they know what he's capable of) and start the curse.

I think that the only reason why Hidan has a scythe as a weapon is because Kishi wanted to show his similarities to the Grim Reaper.

Actually Hidan's Taijutsu skills are very high. He completely outskilled Asuma who was primarily a close combat fighter and can fight toe to toe with Kakashi despites the Sharingan.
Hidan would be incredibly dangerous -well more than he already is- if he wasn't brain-dead.

You are smoking stuff again. Hidan is extremly skilled, Asuma lost to him and Kakashi only barely match this speed despite Sharingan. Of course Hidan wouldn't be as great if he didn't have his religion and ability, just like Jiraiya wouldn't be fearsome without frogs. That's fairly obvious.

Who gives a shit about a kunai before they know it's capable of teleport? I guess that Yondaime isn't so great. :P

Being not as fast as guys like Itachi and Deidara isn't really slow.

Don't knock hidan's taijutsu. For the slowest member in akatsuki, he's pretty darn quick. Remember how during the first initial ambush by asuma's squad, he managed to dodge everything they threw at him until shika's shadow bind got him. He also managed to cut asuma during close combat and tag kakashi once or twice in his latest encounter. Hidan is pretty fast indeed and the fact that he can make his scythe and the rope holding it freakishly large and freakishly long somehow only makes him more dangerous.

One of the things I've wondered about hidan is that after he cuts someone, he runs to that circle in the ground and transforms. Is that circle predrawn? Where does it come from? How does it get there?

That still doesn't make him slow in comparison to other shinobi... Akatsuki are all superskilled shinobi.

He summons the circle using his sumoning jutsu.

He drew/draws the circle with blood using his foot. I think it was his blood he uses/used.

Hidan is one of the best Akatsuki. I think he will survive this fight and escape. Kakuzu will die.

True, but that still doesn't change the fact that Hidan has the I. Q. of a tomato. I think what Hidan meant was, he has about jonin speed. Where as Akatsuki in general has kage speed. Though I'm sure when your hanging around shinobi monsters all the time, you'd feel a bit slow too. Heres the way I see it as far as Hidan's over all skills go:

1. Speed- Jonin
2. Strength-Jonin
3. Ninja skills- Kage
4. Intelligence- *fart noise*
