Kakuzu – Sea King Studio
Kakuzu – Sea King Studio: Kakuzu is a character in the Japanese manga “Naruto” and its derivative works, one of the elite members of the original Hidden Mist Village, and a member of “Akatsuki.” He is a partner of Hidan and possesses the secret technique “Jashin Ritual,” which allows him to use black tendrils released from his body to seize the hearts of others.
Including his own heart, he can store up to five hearts in his body and extend his lifespan by replacing them, earning him the title of “Immortal.” Each heart can transform into a monstrous entity formed by the Jashin Ritual and use the jutsu of the original heart’s owner.
One of his hearts was destroyed by Kakashi’s Raikiri, one by Shikamaru’s strategy, two by Naruto’s Wind Release: Rasenshuriken, and the last one was destroyed by Kakashi’s Raikiri.
During the Fourth Great Ninja War, he was resurrected using Edo Tensei by Kabuto Yakushi. After a fierce battle, he was eventually subdued by the combined forces of the Ninja Alliance, and Itachi Uchiha released him from the Edo Tensei, allowing his soul to ascend.
Kakuzu’s journey through time began at the founding of the ninja villages in various countries. As an elite of the Hidden Mist Village, Kakuzu was assigned the mission to assassinate the First Hokage but was defeated by the Wood Release jutsu.
Despite facing a life-threatening crisis, he awaited in the village with the stigma of mission failure and severe punishment. This was a cruel fate for a ninja who had risked his life for the village. Filled with intense hatred, Kakuzu escaped, stealing the village’s prized forbidden jutsu and the hearts of all its superiors.
Each heart Kakuzu acquired possessed a different chakra nature, allowing him to freely manipulate the properties of all five chakra natures and maximize the power of each nature. The mask monsters created through the Jashin Ritual could release these jutsu individually or combine them to unleash enhanced jutsu.
Overall, it’s a very well-done character. If you’re a fan, take action on this figure now!
