    Alright, I know that the Akatsuki are pretty shady dudes and all, and most of them don't seem to like each other very much, but Kakuzu saw that Hidan was about to get his ass handed to him and he was just like "Nah, sorry, you're fucked."

    What kind of teamwork is that? Don't they have a job to do? Kakuzu better hope they both get out of this situation in tact, or I think the Leader's gonna be royally pissed.

    You mean like how Deidara and Sasori deliberately separated from eachother?

    -_-

    The leader has a choice

    Pick super ninjas who have big egos and hate eachother

    or Weaker ninjas who can cooperate and tolerate eachother

    Obviously, itachi and kisame seem to be the exception here but the other pairs obviously dont really care much about "team work"

    I don't it has much to do with team work. I always thought that it was a shinobi trait to respect the wishes of a ninja who asked to fight a battle by himself (Hidan told Kakuza to stay out about 3 times).

    Plus, it the hole defeat happened in the matter of seconds and I think everyone knew that Hidan was going to get pushed out of the circle, but I his head getting chopped off wasn't very anticipated.

    I have to go back and read it, but I don't remember Shika annoucing, with time to spare (and time for Kakuza to react), that they were going to cut off Hidan's head.

    After Hidan blowing off Kakuzu's warning for the 1000th time and repeatedly telling Kakuzu to stay out of the fight, I think Kakuzu just thought to himself "You know what Hidan? This is what you get. Fucker."

    Maybe now Hidan will be more appreciative of Kakuzu's warnings and fight more seriously.

    This group is dysfunctional to start with. I wouldn't be surprised some more moronic ego plays coming from them.

    Given that the AL's been in command of these assorted psychos and maniacs for at least 9 years, I'd imagine that he's indifferent to the point of having a heart of adamantium, or he turns the other eye anyways.

    Besides, there are always replacements as seen with Tobi.

    I highly doubt they even "care" for each other, given how easily they expend human lives and the kind of atrocities they have previously commited.

    My bet is the only thing holding them together is the common goal of capturing Bijuu. Outside of that, everything is fair game.

    Right, but even that's more acceptable than standing aside and letting your partner get jacked up.

    Kakuzu can move pretty fast. Didn't you see him ninja vanish over there to grab Hidan's head?

    I think the AL needs to start putting the fear of god into his minions here.

    FFS, Kakuzu was just taking the piss and gettin his own back on Hidan.

    He knows Hidan would be fine.

    Nah, I don't think it's so bad. :amuse Kakuzu knows Hidan could handle it. It's probably not the first time something like this has happened. Kakuzu's just teasing with Hidan (like always, I might add). I think they've got better teamwork then we've seen so far.

    Deidara lost an arm. He got it back, no problem.

    Why would Hidan have any problem with getting a new body? Kabuto has lots of dead specimens, of all sorts. Why would Akatsuki have any trouble? Zetsu would listen to AL if he was told not to eat them, and I betcha Kakuzu is Akatsuki's Tsunade, as he seems to have super strenght(like Tsunade) and might be a medic. And they both love money.

    Kakuzu warned Hidan. Hidan didn't listen. So Hidan got fucked up for it.

    You can tell by the way Kakuzu was speaking, he knew Hidan wouldn't die.

    Also, Hidan told him not to interfere.

    Kakuzu is a professional - he wouldn't let Hidan get jacked like that unless he was sure they would still win. He just decided to let Team Asuma teach him a lesson about being cocky first.

    Yep, Kakuzu actually seemed to be enjoying watching how Hidan's head got chopped off.

    It must be hell for someone like Kakuzu with short temper to work with Hidan who constantly tries to rag him off as he knows Kakuzu can't kill him.

    Well, Akatsuki has shown not every pair gets along well, and Kakuzu and Hidan are no exception. As long as the guys get the job done and do it right, I imagine the leader doesn't get on them too much. As for the whole "Help me Kakuzu!" event, well, it's not like he was really in trouble as we see in that chapter. He was still alive after all and Kakuzu just didn't see a point in doing anything, just like his personality.

    I'm starting to doubt the latter. It looks to me like the Akatsuki's most formiddable opponents are the members themselves.

    Excepting Kisame and Itachi, of course. Those two are all business.

    It seems to me Kakuzu is using his ass as cash in. If he walks away next chapter and cashes in his head I will laugh my head off.

    why bother? he knew it was not going to do any serious harm to hidan, so why waste the time?

    I'm sure if he thought hidan was in actual mortal peril, he would have helped out.

    Hmm I thought he was actually going to kill Hidan. Like how greedy he is and like him saying your head is lighter.

    Like others said, Kakuzu might have been (silently) cheering on Asuma as he cut off Hidan's head. He got what he deserved. Hidan could have finished the whole group quickly, but instead fooled around until things got serious.

    As for Kakuzu, he doesn't really care for his partners in general. Two or three chapters ago, he was saying how he killed all his partners before Hidan came along. Plus, he knows Hidan will be fine. Worst case scenario: he will have to come into the battle and finish Asuma's team himself.

    no no, he is more anti-naruto esque dark humor type but still much of a pervert as ero-senin. but i can't wait to see the AL and second in command.
    i wonder if they will be the mom and dad of the group.

    hidan: Dad(AL), kakuzu didn't help me when my head got cut off.

    kakuzu: the money was more important, DAD :)

    deidei: hidan, u are such a fool. let me lecture u about how to be a cool akatsuki member.

    tobi: deidei-chan talks to much DAD and hidan u are soooooo stupid. even more than me, right zetsu?

    zetsu A: yes, hidan is an idiot.
    Zetsu B: tobi is a moron.

    kisame: itachi-san looks like its been another fun and interesting day for all of our other brothers.

    itachi: brother?! i have only one brother and he is a foolish little brother!

    purple hair with flower: now lets get down to business. who caught the jins?

    itachi: yes, down to business....

    everyone else: screw u itachi, we are busy.

    AL: i will kill u all. u should be happy to be in the akatsuki :)

    Which bothers me. That is the thing that has struck me as odd after meeting the last 3 pairs. They like eachother. For some strange reason they do.

    Dude most of the Akatsuki have badass attitudes. The Akatsuki Leader is not going to kick them out just because they aren't gentlemen. And I doubt he is like a God to them anyways.
