What was Itachi going to do with Naruto?

    When Itachi and Kissame went to Konoha in part one, looking for Naruto... what was he going to do with him?! i mean, at the time, it seemed obvious that Itachi was going to take Naruto to the Akatsuki, and have Kurama pulled out of him... killing Naruto in the process, like they did with Gaara, and the other jinchuruki.

    However, this is confusing and conflicting for TWO reasons...

    1. Itachi was fanatically in love with Konoha! He loved the leaf village, and was willing to do absolutely ANYTHING to protect it, so then... WHY take away one of Konoha's most powerful assets, and capable defender?! Especially when... at that time... the Akatsuki had NOT YET even began collecting Jinchuruki, and wouldn't for another THREE MORE YEARS beginning with Gaara! It seems very out of character that Itachi would have been so willing to take out Naruto, and seal away Kurama, knowing that his life's goal was to protect the leaf village, above all else. This is especially strange if you consider that the Akatsuki as a group had not yet even began collecting jinchuriki, AND that Itachi wasn't even really working for the Akatsuki in the first place, but was instead a double-agent collecting Intel from them! For a guy that loves his village, and wants to protect it, why pre-emptively take out your own village's jinchuruki, offsetting the balance of power against your own village, in favor of all the other villages by comparison... when the organization your working for, isn't even ready to start taking out jinchuruki for another 3 years?!

    2. When Itachi learned that Deidara and Sasori were going to go up against Naruto, he seemed noticeably upset by that; which is highly unusual for Itachi to show any emotion at all. Then, immediately afterwards, when he and Kissame returned to their bodies, Kissame asked Itachi... if Itachi was okay with them taking Naruto instead, as if he knew that Itachi was not comfortable with that! It seemed like the show was implying that Itachi was very uncomfortable with that, and even Kissame knew. However, it shouldn't matter in the slightest if Itachi really wanted them to capture Naruto, kill him, and seal away Kurama! And, if he didn't want that... then, why did he go looking for him three years prior???

    Any thoughts???

    Itachi faked a BS reason to get away and not capture Naruto after Jiraiya arrived. He would have stopped Kisame with another BS reason to spare Naruto.

    Interesting, so you think Itachi NEVER really intended to capture Naruto at all!?

    Why do you think Itachi and/or Kissame went after Naruto three years before any Akatsuki members went after any other jinchuruki???

    Akatsuki wanted to capture Naruto, it would have been weird for Itachi to be the only one saying "No ! Don't wanna".

    Itachi just faked going along with the ride. Kisame though, probably followed the order to a T.

    Yeah! I totally get that part! But, why do you think the Akatsuki wanted to capture Naruto, three years before trying to capture any of the other jinchuruki?!

    We don't know what kind of orders Pain gave. Probably just to assert the situtation and capture Naruto if useful.

    Itachi went to Konoha to let Danzo know that he was still around after Hiruzen's death, so it was likely his own decision to enter into Konoha. Perhaps he suggested that it was a reconnaissance mission to feel out the whereabouts of the Kyuubi, and to capture Naruto if practicable. Of course he never intended of going along with the mission to the end.

    Jiraiya was the main reason the Akatsuki strayed away from Naruto.

    The three year gap for the Akatsuki was time for gathering money and building power. It's also possible that some of the Bijuu had died and there was a wait period for their spirits to return. On the side, they also were concerned with Orochimaru's defect.

    The only reason Itachi went to Konoha 3 years prior to Shippuden was because he wanted to let Danzo feel his presence after Hiruzen, the Sandaime Hokage, had died.

    This is a good theory, and is given weight when you consider that Isobu was not tied to a Jinchuriki when the Akatsuki captured it, and I'm not sure we're aware of the exact time period where Yagura died? Ao apparently 'saw through' the genjutsu that was controlling Yagura, and that could have been immediately prior to the end of Part 1.

    He wanted to capture Naruto... Nothing else about it... Probably keep the fox away from danzo even if it was good giving it to pain. He doesn't care about Naruto.... If Gama San didn't arrive... No way was Itachi gonna save Nardo at that point against Kisame if the fanfic theory of him bluffing is true... Not at that point. He bailed because the fight with Jiraiya would come with its risks and he already had Ninja Aids.....

    Actually this is untrue. They had already been conducting their hunts before Gaara.

    Its possible Itachi was always in cahoots with Jiraiya and that the toad sage coming to save the day was always part of the plan.

    I think its Tobi who has more to explain. Why didn't he warp into Konoha when Naruto was just a 12 year old weakling, kidnap him and drag out the nine Tails?

    Maybe, Akatsuki did not have all the numbers, required by the ritual. Or Orochimaru kept them too busy. And again, there were Jiraya and Sarutobi both. Plus he had ninetails, maybe ninetails causes trouble even during the ritual with its power.

    It was eventually revealed that Itachi visiting Konoha was him giving Danzo a message, that Itachi is still on high alert and that Sasuke needs to live or whatever. Basically a warning.

    But yeah it doesn't really add up if you look at the actual chapters, and Itachi needlessly torturing Sasuke again with mindrape just to "git gud" and him and Kisami toying around with Naruto almost made him lose a leg too.

    It was understandable that facing Jiraiya in a fullout war would have leveled half of Konoha and put Itachi and Kisami at too much risk, but blah.

    All what these topics do is making me realise that Naruto's plot was a steaming mess from the very first chapter. But hey, it still stole all our hearts anyways.

    He may always have intended to put everyone on higher alert. He outright tells Kakashi what he's looking for, ie Naruto. So making an attempt at grabbing Naruto, only to fail, would cause Konoha to pay more attention and prepare themselves for the Akatsuki.

    Plot no jtusu.

    There is no logical explanation for Tobi not being able to kidnap Naruto. He had a million chances to do it. We even see him teleport beside Naruto while he's sleeping during the Kage Summit.

    Kishimoto didn't think it through, that's all.
