17 Chapter 17. Jiraiya Has the Final Say.

Listening to the group's serious blather, Jiraiya was shocked.

'No way, no way.'

'I couldn't be killed by my own student!"

'So miserable?'

'I wonder if Tsunade and I would be together at that time...'

Jiraiya looked back at Uchiha Obito again, and seeing his miserable face full of blood, he nodded in despair and rubbed his chin, "It seems like, well... it's possible."

At that moment, Pain's inquiring voice rang out, "Uzumaki Naruto? Who is that?"

'Uzumaki Naruto?'

'I don't know who that is!'

Jiraiya was about to say so, but suddenly. 'This name ...'

'It couldn't be that kid, could it?'

Someone with the same name as the protagonist of his own 'Tale of the Utterly Gutsy Shinobi', the son of the Fourth Hokage?

Jiraiya's mind recalled a certain golden-haired guy, looking tenderly at the Red Hot-Blooded Habanero's big belly, 'Teacher, I want my child to use the same as the protagonist of your novel. '

"Uzumaki Naruto!"

Jiraiya stroked his prickly stubble and hesitated.

That boy should be in Konohagakure now. He would be about 8 or 9 years old at this time and should be graduating from ninja school soon.

A light flashed in Jiraya's head. The Third Hokage sent a message to him the other day, asking him to return before the Konoha Chūnin exam.

'Is it for this boy?'

The more Jiraiya pondered about it, the more he thought it was possible.

After the death of the Fourth Hokage, the Third Hokage took back the seat. He was the student of the Third Hokage and the sensei of the Fourth. It was reasonable for him to train the child of the Fourth Hokage.

'I wonder what kind of person that boy would be.'

'Uzumaki Kushina belonged to the Uzumaki clan, and his name was Uzumaki Naruto. Maybe he had red hair?'

Jiraiya smiled as a red-haired Namikaze Minato appeared in his mind.

"I don't think it's him. He's still a kid right now."

Jiraiya shook his head and said, "As far as I know, he hasn't graduated from Ninja School yet. It takes about a few decades of practice to beat me."

Having said that, Jiraya couldn't help smiling to himself.

It's not that he was boasting. He was titled the Toad Sage Jiraiya, the only powerful ninja in the shinobi world who has practiced Sage Techniques.

'Am I that miserable? Killed, just because they say I would be killed...?'

Jiraiya's eyes looked at several names in the answer list. He was prepared. When he finds out the correct answer, he was going to clean the person up!

He was going to make the person understand what it means to "respect your teacher"!

'Putting their teacher to shame!'


"Sure enough, the young man with Rinnegan is Jiraiya's student."

Ōnoki, who was floating in mid-air, sneered at the broadcast screen. His wise eyes had long seen through everything.

What Akatsuki, what about the Fourth Shinobi War?! This was just a means for Konoha to show off their strength.

He understood this point as early as the first question.

Now, he was even more sure.

Look at these four students of Jiraiya. 'What bullshit is this!'

Ōnoki angrily took a puff on his pipe.

He was jealous!

He was dying of envy!

'Why is Konoha always full of talent? Was it the only cradle for talent in the shinobi world?'

Ōnoki deeply sighed. Although he didn't want to admit it, he had to.

No matter which generation, there was a huge gap between Konohagakure and Iwagakure.

'No, there was a huge gap between Konoha and every other shinobi village!'

When he thought about it, his Iwagakure wasn't any worse off than the other shinobi villages!

But it was poor enough!

In his own generation, though Iwagakure had him, Konoha had "the Professor", Sarutobi Hiruzen, and the advisor, Danzō.

In the next generation, there were only a few Jōnins in Iwagakure ... But what about Konoha?

It was like an amazing fluke; they had the Sannin!

Not to mention Konoha's White Fang, who died early.

Until the generation after ...


Ōnoki sighed again. Looking at the several names on the screen, he began to wonder about them for a while.

In the First Shinobi World War, the two supreme shinobis were from Konoha, subduing an entire generation.

In the Second Shinobi World War, the Sannin came out of nowhere to oppose the demigod.

In the Third Shinobi World War, the Yellow Flash roared and dominated the battlefield.

'I wonder what monsters Konoha would spawn in the Fourth Shinobi World War.'

"Damn it!"

Ōnoki looked at the names above for a moment. Namikaze Minato and Uzumaki Naruto aside, according to the questions, Uzumaki Nagato and Uchiha Obito seemed to have something to do with the Fourth Shinobi World War.

Ōnoki briefly recalled. According to the analysis from the exam space, Uzumaki Nagato died before the Fourth Shinobi World War, and Uchiha Obito also defected in the Fourth Shinobi World War.

In that case, there should only be a few from Konoha in the Fourth Shinobi World War.

Thinking that far, Ōnoki slowly felt relieved.

After the shinobi world united to defeat the enemy, power distribution must have become even more intense. It would be terrible if Konoha still had shinobis that could conquer the Fourth Shinobi World War.

The entire shinobi world could become Konoha's.

"I'm really overthinking this."

Ōnoki shook his head and wiped away the hint of discomfort in his heart.

As for the guy named Uzumaki Naruto, he wasn't too concerned.

As the Kage of a village, he naturally knew a few things about powerhouses at the level of Sannin.

Especially for prodigals like Jiraiya and those who spend a lot of time in public like Tsunade.

Jiraiya hadn't accepted any disciples yet.

Meaning this guy named Uzumaki Naruto hadn't been accepted yet.

'Well, that's a relief!'

Ōnoki guessed that the Shinobi World War in the future would only be a few dozen years from now.

If it's ten years, this guy named Uzumaki Naruto may still be a Genin.

'If he could grow from a teenager to a shinobi that could survive the Fourth War in such a short time, then this person's talent would be unbelievable!'

'Besides, if this guy could really survive the Fourth War, why would Jiraiya go out and investigate this and that?'

'Wouldn't it be better for him to stay in Konohagakure and teach his student?'

Ōnoki couldn't help but smack his lips when he thought of Namikaze Minato's poise, Uchiha Obito's madness, and Nagato's eccentricity.

'If this Uzumaki Naruto also participated in the Fourth Shinobi World War ...'

'Jiraiya fought in the Second World War, his students fought in the Third World War, and then took a student to fight in the Fourth World War when he was that old?'

'Indeed, whether the shinobi world is chaotic or not, he, Jiraiya, has the final say!'

'If that's the case, I'll eat my ...'

Cough cough!

'That must be impossible.'

'If Jiraiya could teach so many unbelievable people, he wouldn't need to investigate any such shit!'

'If he taught these people well, the shinobi world would have been peaceful.'

'But ...'

Ōnoki laughed.

If his imagination came true, wouldn't Jiraiya be beaten to death by Sarutobi Hiruzen?
