was itachi 11 when he joined the akatsuki because when he joins orochimaru soon later trys to take his body and thats when he leaves and in the anime the akatsuki members say its been 10 years since he left so was he 11 or is itachis age in the info box wrong?spar_fighter he was still at the hidden leaf village when he was 13 kakashi said so in itachis debut he was anbu leader

He was eleven years old and this question would have been better asked on Itachi's talkpage. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 22:17, September 6, 2009 (UTC)
There is so many floors to itachis age because its true that orochimaru left akatsuki because of his failed attempt to take itachi's body, which was ment to be 10 years ago. But kakashi also said when fighting itachi that he was made head off ANBU black ops at 13 so how does that work out?
He stayed in Konoha for about two years after he joined Akatsuki?
It all fits, really: Itachi enters the ANBU when he's eleven years old. He gets the mission to assassinate the Uchiha clan, so he looks for Madara and joins Akatsuki. He kills Shisui and gains the Mangekyou, but the Third Hokage postpones the mission in favour of diplomacy. While in Akatsuki, Itachi meets Orochimaru and defeats him, causing Orochimaru to leave Akatsuki. Two years later the negotiations with the Uchiha clan have failed and Itachi massacres the clan, leaves the village, and joins Akatsuki full-time. --ShounenSuki (talk | contribs) 01:02, September 13, 2009 (UTC)
To add on to that: he is at some point given an extra, slashed headband to wear for Akatsuki affairs. ~SnapperTo 02:44, September 13, 2009 (UTC)

Guys you are wrong, sorry to say that. During Uchiha massacre Sasuke was 7 years old. And Itachi is older than him some 5-6 years. And he killed his clan shortly after he joined ANBU, so its 13 most likely. He left the Leaf after that and joined Akatsuki ...—This unsigned comment was made by HitsujiV (talkcontribs) .

No Itachi was 13 when he massacred his clan. He is 5 years older than Sasuke and at that time Sasuke was only 8.
