"At this point we have seven undead - Sasuke I know you hate the Third, but he is a good fighter - plus at least me, Karin, and Sasuke, and whoever we can pull from the Leaf and Sand teams. Probably at least one medic. Plus, Cam, who is mostly invulnerable and can make arbitrary material objects."
"Akatsuki's got eight members, though one of them's maybe kind of on our side. Ish. One of them - Nagato - has the Rinnegan and is going to be the hardest fight. One of them, Konan, can control paper, and will probably be using that for seals, especially explosive tags. Those two are unlikely to directly take the field. The others are the zombie duo - Hidan and Kakuzu - who are kind of immortal. According to Hashirama, Kakuzu needs to be killed five times to keep him down, but can maybe be bribed. Hidan can survive arbitrary injuries, and if he cuts someone, any injuries that happen to him also happen to them. We should put undead against those two. The next duo is Deidara and Sasori. Sand passed on some stuff about Sasori - he's a puppeteer, can control hundreds of puppets at a time. Probably also a good fight for an undead, since you guys aren't susceptible to poison. Deidara's a bomber. Last duo is Uchiha Itachi and Kisame. Itachi's allegiance is up in the air. Kisame's one of the Seven Swordsmen, and has Samehada."
"If the Akatsuki are split up, we should stick a sensor with each team. Right now, that means Tobirama, Karin, Mito, and me and Kurama."
