From what I recall, Hidan's head was buried deep inside a hole in the Konoha Forbidden Jungle.

Does it mean that Hidan is still alive after all this year? Is it possible for someone to rescue him and bring him back if he is still alive?

According to the Wiki

Though believed dead by Akatsuki, Hidan is in fact alive but is dying slowly from a lack of nutrition.

When Kakuzu was reincarnated during the Fourth Shinobi World War, he took Hidan's absence as proof that he was still alive.

  • So we can conclude that Hidan is dead, since nobody going to rescue him, we already know that. Plus, Hidan's main advantage is his inability to die from virtually all causes, with the exception of malnutrition. – 3.1415926535897932384626433832 Jan 20 '15 at 7:23
  • but the toll for beeing immortal is that he serves his god jashin and present him sacrifice. so since he isn't able to do this, his power of immortality shoudl vanish and he will die then – Mintri Mar 19 '15 at 9:50

Although it's mostly based on speculation and it isn't really mentioned in the series that that he is definitely alive, when Kakuzu was reincarnated during the Fourth Shinobi World War, he took Hidan's absence as proof that he was still alive (Chapter 530, page 3).

    Its not speculation. They said he's an effective immortal and he would be buried there forever with Shikimaru's clan's forest watching over it. – Quikstryke Jan 19 '15 at 16:32
  • @Quikstryke Please do not forget that Kakuzu specifically said there is no such thing an immortal when he talked with Shikamaru when they met (I think for the second time). – Hashirama Senju Jan 19 '15 at 17:18
  • but Hidan is well and truly immortal thats why Shikamaru had to bury him alive or else a smart cookie like Shikamaru would've figured a way to kill him – Vegeta Jan 19 '15 at 21:35
  • @HashiramaSenju from the link you provided quote "Though believed dead by Akatsuki,[42] Hidan is in fact alive but is dying slowly from a lack of nutrition.[10]" – 3.1415926535897932384626433832 Jan 20 '15 at 0:13
  • But take note that you need the DNA of Hidan in order to reanimate his body. His absence doesn't really mean that he is still alive. Maybe there are just no DNA sample present. – Nara Shikamaru Jan 24 '15 at 10:09

I think he is dead as Kabuto reanimated him during the Power arc which is a filler in Naruto Shippuden.
