Uchiha Itachi Konoha Guardian Angel
Uchiha Itachi is ex-Akatsuki and been considered by Konoha as a missing nin... But is he really a bad guy or ?
i personally think that Uchiha Itachi is Konoha Guardian Angel , the reasons are:-
1) Akatsuki only starts attacking on Konoha after Itachi death..
itachi is actually controlling and monitoring the akatsuki movements especially if it involved Konoha.. while he is one of the akatsuki member , the akatsuki can't make any harsh move towards Konoha.. maybe because Itachi is among the strongest ... No one could ever faced him and wins.. even Nagato and obito are weaks when face itachi sharingan..
After his death, obito started his plot to gain 9 tails..
2) He in the first place, weight konoha more than his entire family and clan.. he killed them all that nights is not only to obey the eldest orders but actually to save konoha from internal war.. uchiha clan was a treat to konoha that time.. as the Konoha guardian angel he execute the violence order...
3) he always there to aid konoha especially naruto.. he seems to appear several time to face naruto.. the memorial is when he stop by to give naruto his crow.. even he is akatsuki.. he still did thing that suppose to come handy to aid konoha in the future..
4) even in death he skipped the edo tensei and aid naruto to face Nagato..
a)Akatsuki vs Itachi
it seems that Akatsuki movement towards Konoha was restricted due to Itachi existance. Itachi seems to have the control of akatsuki movements/ plot ever since he joined the group.
eventhough akatsuki is full of powerful ninja but most of them woudnt have the guts to face Itachi.
Nagato eventhough posses Rinnegan but its weak againts genjutsu,
Obito who posses sharingan is also not itachi match because he eyes are weaks .
Others members are no match vs sharingan.
Pain and Obito is just waiting for Itachi death because its the only way for them to get reach 9 tails. so that why obito start his plot so that sasuke and itachi will fight untill last breath. Sasuke is select to replace itachi because sasuke missions is to crush itachi and konoha.
b) Itachi chasing sasuke sharingan.
Itachi seems planning to have sasuke eyes from the beginning . that why he lets his brother lives and make sasuke hates and want to kills him. he also ask sasuke to gain MS before finding him.
i think that itachi realize that in order to protect konoha he must gain the eternal MS first. Without the EMS, his missions will be tough .. to face Nagato without EMS will be difficult.
so he was looking forward the days of his battle with sasuke not just to gain the EMS but if he fails to, he hope that sasuke will took his and continue his missions.
