Jiraiya and Naruto’s Funny Moments Pt. 1: Jiraiya’s Smokin’ Something…

Jiraiya and Naruto have got to be the funniest duo next to Kakashi and Gai. I love watching their funny moments, which I did several times just now. It’s like a good song (or really bad pop song) that sticks in your head all day long. Instead, for me, it’s anime scenes.

From Naruto episode 53, here’s part one of Jiraiya and Naruto’s funny moments.

Lost Dreams: Orochimaru & Tsunade

As I watched Naruto Episode 95-96, I noticed I wanted to write about the similar traits characters have in Naruto. When Tsunade hears Orochimaru say the same words as her about becoming the Hokage, Tsunade gives insight on Orochimaru’s character, I believe, since they uttered the exact same words. Sure, people can say the same things but mean differently; however, with the elusiveness around Orochimaru’s character, I believe that Kisimoto did this on purpose. I feel like Kisimoto is playing favoritism here with his characters! Tsk tsk! Just kidding! Anyway, I say that because he’s leaving Orochimaru’s weird and mysterious self and past and bringing more of Orochimaru’s vulnerable side, so to speak, into the series during the Fourth Great Shinobi War, which is way later into the series.

Shikamaru

Shikamaru — he may look like his dad, but he has Asuma’s spirit! While listening and watching Temari’s fight with Shikamaru, I was reminded that I wanted to write a blog post about him, so here it is!

Sasori — Is He Really Such A Bad Guy?

I gotta say, Sasori’s fight with Sakura & Chiyo-baasama was one of my favorites. I also think Sasori’s character is rather interesting for a villain, so I felt like talking about him today. I’m just itching to get a blog post up, so Sasori will be my topic of the day.

Just a bit of background for Sasori: He grew up with loving parents and a grandmother (Chiyo-baasama). However, his parents were killed by Kakashi’s father, Konoha’s White Fang, when Sasori was very young. Chiyo-baasama didn’t know how to tell her grandson that his parents were dead (understandable), so Chiyo-baasama let it go for some time, but in the end, she couldn’t keep lying to him. After knowing his parents were dead, he longed to see them again, which is seen in this scene here when he sees a child being loved by his parents:

Jiraiya’s Women Troubles

Jiraiya is a rather interesting character. From his actions to his slightly obnoxious personality, it sometimes makes me think “How in the world is Jiraiya one of the Legendary Sannin?”. We know that Tsunade contributed with her strength and medical ninjitsu during the war. Orochimaru was naturally a “genius”, so we know that he probably contributed a lot during the war, too. But what did Jiraiya do? We see that he “adopted” the Ame Orphans and trained them in ninjitsu, etc.

Life As A Jinchuuriki

What I find most interesting about the lives of a Jinchuuriki is how Kisimoto presents them. For instance, Killer Bee grew up always rapping, dancing, and being in high spirits. He knew what was happening around him. He knew that people were looking down on him, isolating him. But, he still held his head high, still rapped, and still lived happily. I think it’s due to the Raikage being there for Killer Bee since they became “the ultimate tag team”.
