Akatsuki: The Dawn of Naruto

Akatsuki (暁, literally: “Dawn” or “Dawn”) is a group of shinobi that exists outside the conventional system of hidden villages. Over the past few decades, Akatsuki takes on different forms and is led by different individuals. Although each iteration is seen as a subversive or criminal, all seek to make the world a better place through their own means. Each Akatsuki tends to have multiple niches around the world, inaccessible due to their remoteness or the various security measures that protect them.

The original concept of Akatsuki was devised by Black Zetsu as part of a plan to revive its mother, though it pretended that the idea came from Madara Uchiha, whom Black Zetsu tricked into was an expression of will. mine. Akatsuki was originally founded by Yahiko during the Third Shinobi World War along with her childhood friends, Nagato and Konan. As orphaned Amegakure citizens during the Second Shinobi World War, the three created Akatsuki as a way to bring peace to their homeland, which was frequently entangled in numerous conflicts of The Five Great Shinobi Countries. At the same time, the three were approached by Tobi, who introduced himself as Madara Uchiha. Tobi claims Nagato is the reincarnation of the Six Paths of the Sage and offers to teach him how to control the Rinnegan’s powers, though Yahiko does not trust him and causes Nagato to decline his offer. However, Tobi later stated that it was he who encouraged Yahiko to form Akatsuki without Konan knowing.

Akatsuki’s desire to end the war drew many of his fellow Ame ninjas towards their goal and overtime, words of their deeds began to extend beyond Amegakure’s borders. Akatsuki’s early popularity was largely attributed to Yahiko’s leadership abilities and his natural charisma, which kept the group united and motivated them to persevere despite difficulties for their goals. . Yahiko, however, considers herself merely the support for Nagato, who will ultimately be the true source of world peace because of his Rinnegan. Ame’s leader, Hanzō, also became aware of the Akatsuki and viewed them as a threat to his rule, a belief encouraged by Danzō Shimura in the anime. Hanzō approaches Akatsuki offering to help them mediate peace between Konoha, Iwagakure, and Sunagakure. However, when Yahiko, Nagato, and Konan arrived to meet him, they were ambushed by Hanzō’s men and members of the Danzō’s Root, who held Konan hostage and forced Yahiko to commit suicide to save her. Angered at Yahiko’s death, Nagato summoned the Phantom of the Outer Path and used it to slaughter their attackers, even though Hanzō himself had escaped.

In the anime, the other members of Akatsuki obeyed Hanzō’s plan and tried to support Yahiko and the others. Tobi and Zetsu intercepted them and after a long battle, Tobi killed the rest of the party.
