Episode 127-128: Tales of the Gutsy Ninja: Jiraiya Ninja Scroll Parts 1 and 2

~ Another one of my favorite chapters in the manga. This explains a lot about Jiraiya's character and this also serves as an introductory part for more information regarding Akatsuki. ~

This is like a simple biography of he encountered the toads and how his life up to the present has been focused in molding the lives of different people. It is interesting to see that in his life, he has met a lot of people and these people have become a big character when they grow old.

Jiraiya as a kid is much similar to Naruto. He has no purpose in life and so he lacks the motivation in performing well in their trainings. He got his motivation after the their teacher, the third hokage, offered him the summoning jutsu if he will aim to achieve it. Since he like Naruto, always acting on impulse, he accidentally went to the Mt. Myobukuzan where he met the toads.

Jiraiya is the child of the prophecy. The Elder Toad had a dream that one boy would come across their world and it was Jiraiya. Jiraiya trained hard to master the Sage mode and he became strong and formidable. Now take note of this guys, Jiraiya's prophecy is that he would be the teacher of ninja who would revolutionized the world of ninjas. With this Jiraiya set on his journey in search for the revolutionary journey.

Journey after journey, he set out to the world but he didn't found his revolutionary ninja. Until he found Nagato, Konan and Yahiko. Three orphans caused by the war between nations. The three children wanted to protect the people that they love and besides, Nagato has the Rinnegan. The Rinnegan is similar to the Sharingan, a bloodline limit and is a powerful ninjutsu. So Jiraiya felt that he already found his student and he trained them until the three of them can stand on their own. But unfortunately, he got news later on that the three of them died, thus Nagato is not the chosen child.

Jiraiya stops once in a while in his journey as he do his job as a Konoha ninja together with Tsunade and Orochimaru. But later on, he had a new student....the 4th Hokage, the Yondaime who was so talented and he led Konoha to their victory in the war. And sooner or later, Jiraiya didn't know that he would train for his son who was named after the main character in Jiraiya's first novel, Tales of the Gutsy Ninja and perhaps, he might be the revolutionary boy that he is looking for.

This is a bit spoilery but here are the picture of Naruto's parents:
