    We see the AL on page 16. Where exactly is he?

    There's just something about the lightning rod like techno towers that makes me want to say "Hidden Cloud" or at least "Lightning Country."

    However I like many other people just really really want to see the above places so it's probably just wishful thinking.

    What it really remind me of however is Akira; Kishi's favourate manga.

    I think he's hanging out in some random, probably deserted city. It's too big and urban-looking to be an Akatsuki-only facility. It's probably not a hidden village unless the leader secretly has an official position in one of them.

    Seems to be the middle of a city, most likely it will remain unknown and we won't ever see him there again. Kishimoto just wanted to throw in some landscape (which he clearly enjoys drawing) into the chapter and makes things a bit more unique/creative instead of just having him in a cave or something.

    But if that turns out to be his evil lair/apartment then he's got a better place then Sai. He may even live in the basement with his mom.

    Akatsuki Mommy: YONDAIME DID YOU TAKE OUT THE GARBAGE YET
    AL: NOT NOW MOM I'M EXTRACTING THE SANBI!
    Akatsuki Mommg: GET OUT OF THAT DAMN ROOM AND DO IT.

    The AL is a punk in his mid 20's.

    I've always wanted the AL to be a kage or the head of a minor ninja village, it could open the possibility of another ninja war. They can't catch Naruto because he's so heavily protected in Konoha, so the AL realizing he'll need to do it himself, rounds up his army + the remaining members of Akatsuki to acquire the last piece needed for whatever the hell he's got planned.

    *eyes narrow at TPN's unguarded back* Of course not... it's not as if the AL would post on this thread just to steal ideas for world domination... *slowly puts the kunai away after determining TPN is no longer a threat* :p

    Actually, you can see the kanji for "nin" on one of the buildings in the background, so I'd say it's probably a hidden village.

    I have no idea where he was. The place could probably be even outside the 5 great countries.

    In the innmediate background, there's a gigantic "nu". I think it might just possibly be the first character in his name, or something to do with the city. You can also see the kanji "hon", although that might just be Kishimoto smearing his name all over everything.
    I honestly can't tell where it is, but I'm pretty sure it's a hidden village. It's by far my favorite one so far, just because of how it looks.

    What, not a poll this time? >.<

    I'm clueless but I guess this could all fit with the theory that the AL is a descendant of Shodai's VotE-opponent. And that is where his grandpa's group settled from Konohagakure.

    first that city looks awesome....second, i'd say it's some kind of an abandoned city akatsuki uses for their own purposes.
