I think Jiraiya will be better prepared than we expect because he noticed that someone had noticed him, but I don't think that will prevent a confrontation between him and AL or one of AL's minions. Think about it: If someone infiltrated your "hidden" base, wouldn't you try to stop the guy pretty immediately?
One thing I'm wondering about is WHY THE HELL DID JIRAIYA GET DRUNK BEFORE INVADING THE AKATSUKI base?

that's a good point urameshi-sama. it was pretty retarded to get drunked up when he's about to have the fight of his life

To me, Jiraiya and Tsunade's conversation answered a question i have pondering about since i started reading this manga. however, it also raised a lot of other questions.
although i understand the discussion about naruto's possible family members interesting, the thing i want to know most about is why naruto's lineage seems to have been kept secret from the village and naruto himself. I would also be interested to learn how many other leaf ninja know about this.
does kakkashi? root? that asshole ebisu?
maybe becasue it was a time of war and naruto's parents were from diffrent villages their love was forbiden and jiraiya only knows because of his close relationship with the
i assume his lineage is unknown to the villaage because i don't believe he would have been treated like crap if he was recognized as the fourths son, kyuubi or nor.
this is my first post... be gentle

ahaha, so i finally decided to read the last 2 chapters of naruto and good. Finally decided to explain naruto's past, though i wish it was more dramatic than the two just chattering away, but i mean it makes plenty of sense for those two to discuss it.
Hm....a lot is going on right now and i dont know where i stand on this. Akatsuki seem to be dropping like flies and if this continues like that, then where will the story go? I want to assume that Itachi and Pein will die, but theoretically Tobi shouldn't let either of them die since they are strong assets to him...but naruto (the manga) has always been "good guys always win" so we can safely assume they'll die.
well...here's my predictions anyways....
- jiraiya will probably die and kill pein/hurt pein enough for someone else to pick him off.
- itachi will die, sasuke gets MS during the process.
jiraiya dying gives more room for naruto's growth imo, so imo it's likely that he'll die.

If anybody with a spiral is from the Whirlpool country does that mean that Tobi, with his whirlpool mask, is from the whirlpool country too?

Sadly, Jiraiya is gonna die. He'll take out Pein and his partner but get blindsided by Madara. He'll get mortally wounded but be able to escape to Konoha or send a frog back with the info that Madara is around to Tsunada. Also, he'll tell Naruto of his past in a letter or with his last words if he makes it back to the village and say how proud of him he is and all that, thus making Naruto into Super-Naruto.
Happily, we should see him actually get a multi-chapter if not a full volume super ninja battle with him not being weakened by a drug and where the enemy will stand and fight. I look forward to it. And obviously, it will go back and forth with the Sasuke/Itachi battle.
Since Jiraiya is concerned enough with Root to directly warn Tsunada, it would be funny if Root was actually working with/for/or is part of Akatsuki. It would make some sense if you consider that Madara/Tobi is a former Leaf and he would have ties with the village. It would be cool if there actually was some sort of Leaf civil war and some of our favorite jounin turned out to be "bad" guys sort of like how Kabuto was.

Kabuto was bad all the way though..But yeah, It seems like Jiraiya is headin for some serious trouble, and is probaly gonna die..unless there is gonna be a major plot twist and Jiraiya turn out to be an informer for Akatsuki, hence he didn't wanted to be a Hokage..I feel that both things can happen..Either he's goin to die, or theres gonna be some plot twist..
But like kira^2 said, its nice to see him in action again, loooong time since he fought Orochimaru, now we can see him unfold his powers..

Jiraiya can either die or be neutralized so he'll no longer be a threat... hopefully none of that happens and Gamabunta dies instead so Gamakichi becomes the new boss. ^^

Jiraiya in my opinion was the strongest of all the sanin because even Itachi didn't fuck with him and this is after orochimaru confronted Itachi and lost terribly. He was suppose to be the successor of sandaime. If Jiraiya dies then I will forever rid myself of this manga. And how will this give room for naruto's growth if his teachers die, how can he learn anything new.
08-26-2007, 04:46 AM
Naruto have allmost allready learn as much as he can, He's pretty strong now. I don't think Jiraiya have much to learn him..Naruto can easily learn on his own now, he's way smarter then before..
