The original founder of the Akatsuki, Yahiko, entrusted the pursuit of peace to his childhood friend, Nagato. In his grief over his friend’s death, Nagato came to believe that the world would never willingly consent to peace and that the Akatsuki’s previous pacifist approaches were futile. Instead, Nagato concluded that the world needed to experience catastrophic death and destruction so that it could never again stomach the idea of conflict. He then formed the “Six Paths of Pain”, integrating Yahiko’s corpse so that he could symbolically continue leading the Akatsuki.
Quite an impressive cosplay group! I only noticed one minor detail here: Isn’t Konan’s flower supposed to be on the other side of her head? Other than that though, the effects and composition is really good! Thank to Jason for sending this in!
