    Well, there's another opportunity Kishimoto can use to give us a backstory to the Akatsuki members and tell us where Hidan was from. Too bad he probably won't take it.

    This thought crossed my mind too but it would slow the down the action and be pretty unnecessary as much as I would like to know where Hidan is from.

    The book only purpose would be to give detailed abilities and identies of each of the members.

    I wouldn't mind it as long as it doesn't take away from the action.

    Ontopic.

    I hope Kishi does this. But I think not Kishi wants to end Naruto as fast as he can. (sadly but true. :cry )

    I'd be happy if he would just use a page or two to devote a panel to each member, with a picture of them and one or text bubbles saying "so and so from ----gakure no Sato, responsible for so and so crimes, a user of ----". Is that too much to ask? Sounds like something Oda would do, but Kishimoto wouldn't give two shits about.

    I'd like to know the Tobi back story. It could either shoot down or cement the Tobito theory.

    looks like we can find out who the leader is much sooner than we think or kishi might still make us wait for the fun of it.

    Yeah, I don't think we'll get to learn anything about old characters, because we already know some things sbout them. But, the book might let us (them) know a lot about the new ones.

    When it does come out... it will most likely have information on the akatsuki. Maybe a little more background. BUt some may stil be in the manga as flashbacks so dont count taht out as an option yet.

    He won't be talked about by them until he actually makes an appearance. Some hints could be dropped though. Something like:

    *Tsunade receives the book*
    Tsunade: The leader of Akatsuki... it's that man. But how is he still alive?
    Jiraiya: Now you understand what we're up against.
    Kakashi: The other villages will need to be warned soon. This battle won't end well for any of us.
    Naruto: Who is he?
    Yamato: The greatest terror in shinobi history.

    *scene changes to a high cliff overlooking a demolished city and a figure standing there*

    *panel of right thumb showing "zero" ring*

    Unknown: Uzumaki Naruto, huh? Guess I should take matters into my own hands.

    *panel of a grinning mouth*

    Unknown: This world will see a dawn (Akatsuki) of a new world power. Prepare yourselves, hehehe.

    *pans out*

    full body pose of Akatsuki Leader

    Sidetext: A terror that has not been silenced for generations, the leader of Akatsuki. Who is this man?

    Next chapter: "Omnipotent Lord of Malice"

    Except he won't look like Yondaime so you won't know that it's Yondaime if it is indeed Yondaime because Yondaime would have henge'd and gone through a facial reconstruction if he looks so vastly different from the Yondaime we know, but then it could just be Yondaime tricking us into thinking that it's not him and that we're to believe that the Yondaime theory is false and that we won't be expecting Yondaime to reveal his real self until the moment a Yondaime connection is made because he would have to revert back to Yondaime form to prove that he's Yondaime in front of people who know, if he is Yondaime at all.

    It can also be a way to further hype AL, and the rest of akatsuki by proving that the ones that have died already are far weaker than the remaining members.

    Thats what I thought as well. So when Blue Hair shows up we can have Hinata reading from Kabuto's databook. It's the perfect plot device to hype up the unknown members.

    If it reveals the true faces and identity of AL and Tobi then I sure hope so.

    I don't think we're going to learn AL, Blue-haired's identities from that book Kabuto gave Naruto. If Kishi is smart, then he would show us their faces in person instead on a page from that book.

    If Kishi can put us thru a whole chapter looking at some BULLSHIT FIRST GRADE LEVEL DRAWINGS he better give us a chapter showing Details on EVERYMEMBER!

    I would loove a chapter starting off with Naruto and party opening the book. Then each page in the chapter would pretty much be a page out of the book giving all the specs on the members. Then on the last page of the chapter we see them turn to the leaders info and every1 makes this scared look and we have to wait till next chapter.

    Action won't be going nowhere. I could care less about random match up Deidara vs. Sasuke. We all know Sasuke is walking away alive.

    It would really be a good opportunity to get to know all the Akatsuki members better overall, but the question is, will Kishi take that route? I somehow doubt that or at least he won't do it for each member or will just give us shortcuts out of the book.

    Interesting... Making Kakashi understand Tobi a bit more is always good if Tobi really turns out to be Obito later.
    Probly just some basic info.

    Besides, even though Naruto is the main character, it doesn't mean we the readers will know everything he knows. Konoha can start mobilizing w/o ever showing readers the info, or all the info. Just like the scroll about Uchiha secret that Sasuke read. We know Sasuke read the content. But we have no idea what's written on it.

    If it had stuff like:

    "Itachi killed his own Clan."
    "Hidan is immortal."
    "Sasori killed the Sandaime Kazekage"

    Then I'll be pissed.

    IF it's more along the lines of:

    "Hidan is immortal via the means of....."
    "Kakuzu took the hearts of his enemies via a special Kekkei Genkai called....."
    "For his initiation in to Akatsuki Itachi had to...."

    Then that could prove interesting.
