    So, AL turned out to be a political Hitler wannabe.

    Sasori is dead, and the other members does not appear to be the brightest kind in class. Female Akatsuki is is just a Female and sexist Japan does not believe in the existence of smart womens.

    They are all extremely cocky, arrogant and overconfident unlike Itachi who actually identify the strength of his opponents. A very unique badguy ability.

    All the more reason to believe Itachi will betray Akatsuki and that his goal lies elsewhere.

    No way. Itachi has only battle-smarts from what I've seen. I have yet to see his intelligence elsewhere. However, this Akatsuki Leader managed to get a bunch of angsty ex-ninjas to join his all powerful group... So, he must have something going for him intelligence-wise.

    I don't see how Itachi's goals, being less well defined, make him smarter. The AL just proved he's a calculating and thorough bastard, and an excellent planner. Not knowing what Itachi is up to doesn't make him smarter though. Just quieter. Knowing him and his desire to test his container, he's helping in doing this as an outgrowth of that.

    They're all smart in their own respects. Sasori for example, do you think it is a simple thing to learn how to create immortality and make yourself a puppet? Deidara making that eye and analysing Gaara well (which resulted in him winning), and the leader's plans don't seem dumb at all.

    Overall they're pretty smart... but yeah they could be smarter. I enjoy battles with lots of analyzing.

    anybody thinking itachi doesnt have his own goal for joining aka doesnt know anything about itachi. there are no folowers in aka, they all rank the same and the leader is the leader but doesnt own anybody. besides itachi is probably the strongest aka there is. and he probably isnt the only one with plans of his own. he will be the biggest thread and betrayer of aka, he will kill them the way he killed of his own clan. kisame might get spared though.

    do you actually have itachi's phone number???

    since as far as i know, itachi's intentions(SP) and goals are still unknown......

    on what we got so far... he killed his own clan...wants his brother to kill him (something his own brother, thinks imposible even with the aid of orochimaru) ... so smarts is not something going on with itachi....

    I don´t known. But it´s clear that Tobi and Hidan are fighting for the slot of the "Dumbest Akatsuki".

    We still haven't confirmed that the "female" member actually is female.

    Hmm. Intelligence-wise, I would have to say the AL seems to be smarter than Itachi, based on his moment in this chapter. He proved very knowledgable and observant while we've really only seen Itachi's battle genius at this point. I could be completely off, of course, as for all we know the AL just happens to be an expert at Economics.

    MS < AL's Word No jutsu.

    The AL will just lecture Itachi like he did Hidan, and then Itachi's brain will explode:nod

    I'd guess that Itachi and the Akatsuki Leader are pretty equally smart. The Akatsuki Leader has come up with a quite clever plan for Akatsuki: he's accepted their limitations, and thought of a way to gain power without just going out and attacking the great villages. It's a way that should ensure they can keep that power, too.

    But Itachi... well, it seems like Itachi has been planning something all along, since before he massacred the clan; and that plan still hasn't been finalised. He's waiting for something, or multiple things (Sasuke is probably a factor as well as what Akatsuki are doing). Compared to the other members, he seems to think and plan much more; I think it's fair to say most of them are just looking out for their simplistic, short-term goals ("I want to kill people for my religion", "I want to blow things up!", etc.)... this isn't the case for Itachi, he's after something much more important, and he's been going about it the right way for the past decade or so. So far, I would assume that things are working out as he wanted. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is that compared to the rest of Akatsuki - except for the Leader - Itachi's goals and plans are likely much more long-term and complex, and he seems to be thinking a lot more than anyone else.

    As for who's smarter... well, time will tell. I'm surprised that the Akatsuki Leader isn't suspicious of Itachi, but it could be that he has no reason to be suspicious, depending on what Itachi's plans are... or it could be that he knows exactly what Itachi wants, but is just allowing him to carry on for now for some reason. It's impossible to tell. Heh, could be an interesting battle of wits, actually. :)

    As for "battle smarts" or whatever, it seems like both of them are relatively cautious... there isn't much more to say than that.

    AL is the one with the plan and seems to know his stuff. I wouldn't say Itachi is smarter than him.

    Itachi is intelligent fighting wise and such, but the AL is the real brain of the organization. I can't see Itachi coming up with that type of plan.

    Itachi only seems smart in the middle of a fight otherwise he just seems like another average joe.

    i don't think we can know either way, but it wouldn't be surprising if Itachi has a plan of his own, he definetly is evil enough to be the main villian though I don't think it'll happen. I definetly hope that one akatsuki is killed by another akatsuki, a duke out between orochimaru, AL, and Itachi would be pretty cool, I'm kind of not liking AL as a final bad guy, so I hope he's not. Is there this problem in many manga, not knowing who the main bad guy is?

    EDIT: I don't mean problem, it's kind of cool.
