Kakuzu stitches Hidan’s head to his body. Noticing that Shikamaru is exhausted, Asuma tries to retreat with his team, but their path is blocked by Kakuzu. Izumo and Kotetsu make an attack on him while Asuma goes after Hidan, intending to prevent him from reconnecting with them. Hidan strikes with the Three-Blade Scythe. Asuma dodges the attack and reaches Hidan himself, but soon finds that he was too late, and Hidan returned to the area of the Jashin symbol, causing him to share the pain of the wound. Asuma felt double the pain of the scythe strike on Hidan, while Hidan, despite Shikamaru’s attempts to stop him, stabs himself in the heart.
