    So its coming closer and closer, weve almost seen every member of the Akatsuki, so most likely the AL will be revealed soon.

    Just want to see what the majority of ppl think.

  2. If you want majority, make a poll:
    Who is AL?
    -Completely new to the story
    -Already mentioned in story


    If you want the truth, continue to read:
    The Akatsuki Leader is someone we (the audience)
    have already been affiliated with either by his
    named aforementioned and/or characteristics.

    How do I know it is so?
    Spoiler:
    Because it's pointless to slowly reveal a character
    who the audience wouldn't know anyways. It's like
    disecting the the new Kazekage after timeskip. If
    we didn't know him or and it wasn't expected to be
    anyone else then showing us Gaara's face would be
    redundant to say the least. Moronic to say the worst,
    seeing as this writer (Masashi Kishimoto) just messed
    up on a chance to reveal something shocking to us, the
    audience, similiar to when we saw Gaara being Kazekage.

    My guess: We see his whole face, and then we see the
    Sharingan which leads us to believe that it is Uchiha
    Madara, and on a nearby panel or page, they (Hidan
    & Kakuzo) or Itachi refer to him as Madara. Now that
    is going to be nice. But it sucks for me because i'm
    so smart that I already foretold it. So after I write this
    sentence I'm going to decide to wrap this whole thing
    in one Spoiler tag.


    EDIT: When I started making this you didn't have a poll up.

    Kishi never brings back old characters for new ones, they are always original people with original storylines.

    ... I was half ready to go on something about Uchia Madara isn't AL, but So Smart's sig of AL's potential face is just too cool. That, and I thought for a moment that if the Uchia Madara previous Kyubi container theory is right then that would explain his non-Uchiha color hair... he ended up with Fur colored hair instead of Whiskers as his physical sign of Kyubi possesion....

    Total bullocks though, I hope.

    Unprovable speculation aside, So Smart has made a very smart comment despite what his trend appears to be from his reputation bar. Kishimoto, while does make mistakes, puts a lot of thought into this work. He would know all this mystery is pointless unless AL was an existing character that is somewhat known already.

    Unless, he pulls a Sai. He'll turn up as a new character hiding within some village. He'll be a new character, but he won't fully be revealed yet as AL till after he is freshly revealed. Maybe.... just seems strange we are slowly seeing him compared to all the Akatasuki where they are either blacked out or revealed all at once.

    Kishimoto is most probably entirely aware of the speculation surrounding this person. In fact, his intent with this "gradual" revelations might be to smash each of these "AL = X" theories one by one, but slowly.

    There's also another detail to take into account. Observe how much we've seen of AL:
    1: His eyes
    2: His mouth, nose
    3: His silhouette

    We ALMOST know his entire appearance except... His forehead protector.

    A "dramatical revelation" of a forehead protector can be either of these:

    1: He's revealed to be from Konoha. With Tsunade, Jiraiya or any konoha jounin present at the revelation we can hear an explanation of who he is.

    2: He's from an entirely knew village. This can be explained, just like point 1, by a present jounin who can tell them that the village is in fact new or something other. Maybe Konoha has heard rumours about a new hidden village.

    3: He's from another village and through some channel of information we can be told that "Village X has been destroed... So it was him after all"

    it'll probably show formerly thought of strong guys that AL wiped out.

    we'll hear he wiped out kirigakure or something.

    but the character will be totally new, freak genius.:)

    AL is new...It would be cool if he wasn't, but Kishi never "reveals" the Akatsuki members faces unless they actually get into a battle, so there goes the theory of "IT MUST BE SOMEONE WE KNOW B/C OTHERWISE THERE'D BE NO REASON TO HIDE HIS FACE!" thatt gets tossed around so much.

    cant really say. im leaning towards a completely new person but that little teaser at the end of 327 is a little suspicious. Even though from what we see, he looks very unfamiliar but on the otherhand why would kishi give us a sneak peek just like that all of a sudden.
