    One thing about Akatsuki is that they don't really care who dies or who lives. The reason they had Kukazu was because he was very strong. That and he was good for collecting money, part of their goals required money.

    I was under the impression that Hidan was recruited not mainly because of his strength, which wasn't much in comparison with the other members, but because of his immortality. He was the only one who could be Kukazu's teammate when Kukazu went berserk.

    I think those two are the exception. The other members are very powerful. One unique thing about Akatsuki is that each of their members is expendable. They aren't friends, they don't try to get along, because they know that they aren't completely nessissary to AL's plans.
    I brainstorm with my multiple personalities.

    i think that the whole purpose to sasori's match was not only to show sakura's growth, but to show that in a fictional world, even the badass, l33t ninja make mistakes. but i think that was a really nice fight.

    I agree. I loved that fight. Sasori was also matched up against a perfect counter to his style. Sakura had already developed counters to his poison which made up 90% of his attack and Granny could counter his puppets and his insane amount of weapons. Even then Sasori nearly killed them both. Against 90% of the nin with no counter for his poisons or puppets, Sasori wins, hands down. That's what I love about Naruto. It's not power that dictates fights, it's styles.

    Sasori lost to his grandmother because she knew him well and was an elite ninja herself even though she was old. Sakura just brought the guns and some brains.

    I expected Hidan to get his ass kicked because he really wasn't very special outside of his "WHEE I CANT DIE SO ILL JUST MESS AROUND UNTIL SOMEONE KICKS MY ASS".

    Kakuzu was a disappointment though. He was A) cool B) cool C) SO deserving of being a recurring villain especially since he was supposed to be hard to kill. Dude... if you lose 4/5 of your backups in 4 minutes, how do you think the battle is going to end? He was supposed to be all experienced and stuff, but he was just... weak... Nooooo Kakuzu... whyyyy

    i agree with you, sasori shouldn't have died too early in the manga, he is fighting an old hag, and a girl who just started getting good at using her abilities which is utter bull shit. but if you think of the plot this way, the good guys will have to take out the weaker ones in akatsuki before they start to take on the stronger ones.. and if a main character were to die before they reached the upper strength of akatsuki then..there would be no plot.
    hidan was a complete idiot thinking he was invunlerable to any type of attack. well your facing shikamaru who is a ninja with alot of traps and plotting ability . he was going to die sooner or later but kazuku should have more wits given the fact that he lived at least 300+ years or so. he was cornered by 5 ninjas and he pulled out his trump card. he thought he had won but had no idea the power of the rasengan shuriken.

    i dont agree at all about sasori fight just being a "good matchup" and that the matchup is what dictates the fight...point being...that black sand. thats all he needed. period. he had them, but chose the big geometric shapes of doom instead.
