A long time ago, I made a thread about how itachi has had the least impressive showing out of all akatsuki so far. I now recall that statement. hidan is turining out to be nothnig short of completly LAME. for one thing, immortality does NOT=invincibility, as we have seen in the latest chapter. dismemberment seems to be quite effective at stopping hidan, even if it does not kill him. also, the blood thnig? cool idea, but POINTLESS unless in a one-on-one fight. if your willing to sacrafice the bonded nin, this jutsu does nothnig at all to help hidan. so far, members have had SOME way to protect themselves form ahrm, be it skill or some jutsu or another. since hidan is immortal, he seems to just igonore most attacks on him, even letting 3 chunin catch and impale him. dude just ain't careful(because he thinls he does not have to be) seriously, he had BETTER show somethnig else, or I am going to be dissapointed in kishimoto. I remember another immortal guy in a manga series, elder toguro. anyone remember what happened to him? thats right, his immortality allowed him to be put into various, humiliating conditions, since nothnig killed him. I fear that hidan is going to become a joke. hypothetical post by someone latter on in the series: LOL, look at him!! I can't belive they did that to him, thats just emmbarassing!!
