Character that has already been introduced in the Manga
New character going to be introduced
Jiraiya started training Yahiko, Konan and Nagato on the way back from the fight with Hanzo, the rain guy, with Tsunade and Orochimaru. He trained them for three years.
I don't know when exactly he did his travels, but once he was a Jounin he started his Genin team (The fourth, and two other characters).
naruto that the great sage was talking about anyways.
also does anybody have an opinion about the second part of my original post. to me it makes sense but i want to know if anyone agrees or disagrees.
i think jiraiya met those 6 ninja bodies of pain before in his life as fate, like as if he was prophesized to meet them, and nagato happend to control those same 6 bodies. justa wild theory lol
I think Nagato's it or maybe he merged with Yahiko or something. Any how I believe the Yahiko body has the greatest significance, while obviously Nagato's eyes are very important as well.
Hey what about the fact that he remember that he was told he would write a book about his travels which I doubt is the ichaicha series, maybe he wrote a book about the strongest ninja he met and Pain found it and use it as a cathalog for his bodies.
