Its the start of the 5th Great Shinobi World War and the five Great Nations are at ends with each other. Supplies is at its all time low and the Kage's are sending every last Shinobi available to aid the village in its fight for survival. Atop of this, the 9 Bijuu have been set free from their hosts and are causing catostrophic damage across the entire Shinobi World. Despite all the chaos, there is betrayel within the villages. Most notable, Shidou's plan to conquer
an entire nation and use it and its Shinobi to restore peace. Once this goal is accomplished he plans to wipe out the Akatsuki and anyone else who stands in his path of killing Takashi.
Although some members joined Akatsuki to further their own goals, all are united in Akatsuki's ultimate goal of gaining world domination. There leader has mentioned a three-step process to work their way towards this goal. First, they plan to obtain a large amount of money to support their organization.Second, they plan to set up a mercenary group loyal only to Akatsuki. To build their reputation, they plan to accept any mission below the usual cost and operate off of the excess funds earned in the first part of their plan. Because there haven't been any wars in some time, the established shinobi villages couldn't afford to charge such low prices, leading the smaller countries to hire Akatsuki over the more expensive shinobi villages. By using the tailed beasts, Akatsuki would start wars and then immediately quell them, solidifying their reputation and convincing every country to depend on them, thus cornering the market in shinobi labor. Without any business, the other shinobi villages would collapse due to the lack of funds. Finally, after Akatsuki is the only major force of shinobi in existence, they can easily conquer the other countries. Members do not automatically learn of the plan upon joining; Takashi didn't find out about it until he had been a member for quite some time.
The tailed-beast, nine gigantic demons of immense power, are the main focus of much of Akatsuki's and the Villages actions. Each Akatsuki member is assigned to capture one of the nine beasts; the villages assigned elite Jounin to capture the beasts before the Akatsuki. As of now, none have been caught and each village has sought them out in an attempt to gain the upper hand in the war. Other small orginizations are also after the beasts, some for peace...some for destruction. Choose your own path in Naruto: Unspoken Memories!
