there are several threads about the outcome of the jiraya-pein fight...but i didn't want to post this in any of them since it is based on one outcome ONLY...jiraya's death
no hard feelings,i am not among those who want jiraya's death,he's one of my favourite,so i'll get to the point
so far,Kishi is aware(i am pretty sure) that a lot of fans (not all) are getting pissed(maybe bored) of the path naruto has followed in the second part of the plot...obssession,failure and many other aspects are clearely visible in naruto's growth and personality.the most frustrating is the loss of dignity by chasing someone who doesn't even care(if he does he's not showing a hint of it)...
but then again,the recovery of sasuke is the BIG idea of the second part(if not the beginning of it)...so it's a bit LATE to make naruto say : sasuke can go ahead for all i care,he is far more obssessed than me...i'll just have to wait for himO_o
and here is where jiraya's death intervenes,by making the secrets around this event the top priority of naruto...this way,the idea of dropping the chase after sasuke will be GREATLY justified,and the fans will accept it(even love it)
by doing so,we can assisst to a great fight between the brothers and a big one between naruto and what remains of akatsuki while keeping those who are getting a bit annoyed by the current progress of the plot attached and excited
i am not in a position to discuss this with KISHI in person ,so i'll discuss it with the mangashare community...if you see anything weird(not clear),let me know
