    At the end of part 1 there was a picture of Akatsuki with members that look nothing like the Akatsuki members that we have met.

    It could be that Kishimoto had not yet decided on exactly what their designs would be.

    well...kakuzu did state that he killed some of his partners.

    Hm yes, Kakuzu doesn't seem that big at all to me actually.
    Look at that page, where Kotetsu strikes at him, they seem to be of the same size.
    There's not that much of a difference in length between Kakuzu and the others in these chapters.
    And who's that guy who's flying above the others? I have my doubts about the one saying: "Itachi you brother..." too.

    from left top right. kisame, kakuzu, blue hair, itachi, deidei, sasori, hidan, AL & zetsu.

    only thing that bothers me is why the hell is kakuzu soo big? maybe hes sitting on something in the bg.

    "look nothing" like the current members? Oh please...Hidan pulled his hair back and Kakuzu got smaller. Besides that they all look the same.

    Kishimoto just wanted to play around with the designs.

    You can explain Kakuzu as the perspective just being weird in that panel. Or, if you like, you can say the difference is because that's not really Kakuzu but a projection of him.

    As for Hidan... his hair is different, and he changed the position of his head protector. Hell, the AL's hair is different, too, but he's still the same character.

    Deidara may have started out as a bat character and ended up as a bird instead, though.

    I'm not sure how you could tell a difference. All i see is shadowed/hazy outlines in Pic 1 and actual characters in Pic 2. Certainly not enough to see any signficant change given the absence of clear profile identifiers in Pic 1.

    I can only associate Kakuzu with the one that says "Itachi... your brother..." or the giant dude.

    Blue hair is obviously that one person who looks like it is looking at the giant guy.

    Leader seems to have gotten his hair fixed (between Zetsu and supposed Kakuzu).

    Deidara is obviously the one hanging off the ceiling. Since everything is dark we can't assume body shape and stuff just by sihlouette.

    Sadly I can't see a Hidan there. Maybe the giant guy and the "Itachi... your brother..." guy (who happens to look like he's wearing a pirate hat) got killed off or left because of Kakuzu.

    Whoops, I forgot about Sasori.

    They don't look completely changed, it's mostly just some spikes and the height, he could have decided slight changes in character design. Other than that, it doesn't look completely different.
