I think Zetsu's an Akatsuki squad unto himself. He's likely two different nin, or a nin and some kind of plant monster working in unison. The Akatsuki travel in pairs except for Zetsu which makes me think he is a pair (also considering his speech). I think Zetsu is either going to be a obstacle for some of the cast to fight (ala Sasori) or considering his planty-nature, he may be a double-agent working for Akatsuki and Root at the same time.
what adonai said... = ))
he's just there because every good evil organization needs a scizophrenic cannibalistic cross between a human and a plant.
Well thats true! What kind of evil organization would it be without any members being scizophrenic :/
Well, he's either goin to die hard soon, or have some role in a near future where Akatsuki is gone. And Im really hoping that he's goin to die.
I think Urameshi hit the nail square on the head with this one. After Akatsuki's defeated Zetsu will probably have a 1-2 page spread about what he plans to do now and then will never be seen again...
Zetsu is going to become an antique salesman is London and kick anyone out of his store who even mentions the name Akatsuki^^
Just like the dude who played rocky in rocky horror picture show^^
zetsu is their vacum cleaner and destroying evidence of akatsuki crimes.maybe he's gonna be madara's sub leader after pein died.
Zetsu's role in Akatsuki is Surveillance obviously.
Zetsu is going to find a nice garden to grow in.
