Naruto Fans Are Conflicted About Jiraiya's Shocking Return
Naruto has been through a lot over the years, but the death of his mentor stings to this day. Fans were not ready to bid farewell to Jiraiya after the hero was killed trying to stop Pain from coming after Naruto and the Hidden Leaf Village. It has been years since the Legendary Sannin died, but his legacy remains with fans. And thanks to the most recent chapter of Boruto, fans know more remains of Jiraiya than just his legacy.
Today is the day that fans of Naruto learned a startling truth about Jiraiya. The most recent chapter of Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has gone live, and it confirmed the identity of Kashin Koji. The suspicious Kara member has rekindled memories of Jiraiya ever since he was introduced, and that was intentional. After all, the man happens to be a clone of the Sannin.
Yes, you read that right. Jiraiya was cloned at some point, and his copied DNA helped Amado build a replica of the ninja. Much in the way Mitsuki is a clone of Orochimaru so is Kashin to Jiraiya. It doesn't seem like the pair share any memories or experiences, but Kashin does have the same abilities as the Sannin. This explains why he has been able to use Justus only used by Jiraiya, and his chakra signature is the same as his too.
As you can see below, Naruto fans have a lot of thoughts about the clone resurrection, and most find it to be a clever way to bring back the ninja without disgracing his sacrifice. But as always, there are those who argue Jiraiya should be left well enough alone and make room for original characters.

Boruto: 5 Reasons Why Jiraiya's Return Is Good (& 5 Why It Is Bad)
Jiraiya was one of the Legendary Sannin of Konohagakure and one of the most influential characters in Masashi Kishimoto's Naruto series. As the master of Naruto Uzumaki, he played a major role in his development and the achievement of his goals as a shinobi.

Although Jiraiya ended up dying at the hands of his own student, Nagato Uzumaki, he appears to be back, although as a clone created by Amado using Scientific Ninja Technology. While some are very happy with his return, it has also raised quite a few eyebrows in the fandom already. Here are 5 reasons why Jiraiya's return in Boruto is good and 5 why it is bad.
10 Good: Naruto And Jiraiya Reunion
Naruto Uzumaki lived most of his life without having a family to look after him. After meeting Jiraiya, he found his home and someone who would eventually go on to look after him until his moment of death.
Losing him all of a sudden definitely broke Naruto, and what filled him with regret was that he didn't get to show Jiraiya any of his accomplishments. With Jiraiya's return as Kashin Koji, that reunion is now possible again and fans can't wait to see the two meet.
9 Bad: Jiraiya's Legacy
Jiraiya was one of the most prominent shinobi throughout the Naruto series and his own journey as a ninja was perfectly handled from start to finish.
Although Jiraiya never got to do things that he wanted, he did pass on the Will of Fire to his student, Naruto Uzumaki, which, in a way, is the embodiment of the series. With his return, the legacy that he created with the fans is now called into question because nobody knows where the character is headed anymore.
8 Good: The Legendary Sannin
Jiraiya was one of the Legendary Sannin, along with Orochimaru and Tsunade Senju. Out of all three, he was the only one to fall in the series, which left a bitter taste in the mouths of some fans.
With his return, the Legendary Sannin can once again stand proud and that's always a fantastic thing to witness.
7 Bad: Death Fakeout
Jiraiya's death was unarguably one of the most game-changing events in the entire Naruto series. Not only did it finally clarify who the child of prophecy was, but it made Naruto grow as a shinobi and even helped him develop his own way of handling problems, that is, choose a path without hatred and violence.
RELATED:Naruto: 10 Amazing Works Of Fan Art That We Love
While that worked perfectly with the Naruto series, his return in Boruto makes the previous events seem like a death fakeout just to make Naruto stronger forcefully.
6 Good: Koji's Handling
As a character, Kashin Koji has been handled pretty well in the Boruto series so far. Although he is technically the same as Jiraiya, it is also likely that he is his own person to an extent.
To put that into perspective, fans can look at Mitsuki and Log. Although both of them are essentially the same person, they've got their own will and separate identities.
5 Bad: Boruto's Story
Throughout the Boruto series, it's been established that this isn't Naruto Uzumaki's story anymore. Times have changed and Naruto has already done what he wanted to do. This is Boruto's story and his own era.
However, time and again, the Boruto series takes elements from Naruto and uses them to gain the attention of the fans. This was first seen with Ao, who was randomly brought back, and now with Jiraiya. It makes one question how much of this truly is going to be Boruto's own story.
4 Good: Scientific Ninja Technology
Whether you like the decision to bring back Jiraiya or not, something that's always been outlined in the Boruto series is the importance of Scientific Ninja Tools.
RELATED:Naruto: 5 Toughest Fights Of Sasuke Uchiha (& 5 Easiest)
The technology has been thoroughly developed over the course of the last few years and at this point, fans know that creating a synthetic human isn't impossible anymore. With that, Boruto is sticking to its roots and promoting the idea that technology will always heavily influence the series.
3 Bad: Changing The Feel Of The Story
With Jiraiya's return, a change in how Naruto's story feels is inevitable. Knowing that the Toad Sage returns, later on, fans may no longer be able to look at his death and be hit by the same emotion anymore.
While it worked well with Naruto as a stand-alone series, knowing that he returns later on definitely diminishes the impact that it had on the fans at first.
2 Good: Boruto's Popularity
Although not the best thing out there, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is doing pretty well as a series. To boost its popularity even further, plot devices such as Ao and Jiraiya have been used. While some may not like it, they will definitely get more people interested in the series because of the nostalgia factor.
Regardless of what people feel about the decision to bring him back, Boruto, as a series, will be the center of attention for quite a while now.
1 Bad: Jiraiya's Future
Jiraiya's return as Kashin Koji is definitely something that will raise more questions as we go forward in the story and one of the biggest ones would be regarding his future.
In Naruto, Jiraiya got a perfect ending that couldn't have been handled any better. With his return, another death seems to be highly unlikely, so then what exactly is his future going to be? Unfortunately, Jiraiya's fate will remain up in the air for quite a while until we finally get to see the story wrap up.

'Boruto' Has a Major Jiraiya Link And Naruto Fans Don't Know How To React
Disclaimer: This article contains spoilers from Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
If you watched Naruto growing up, you'll know that there are certain deaths in the anime that you just can't get over. Jiraiya's death is one of those fictional loses that fans are still dealing with. Jiraiya was Naruto's mentor who dies trying to stop Pain from attacking Naruto and destroying the Hidden Leaf Village. It happened years ago, chapter closed right? Wrong! 'Boruto: Naruto Next Generations', in its ongoing manga, has made repeated Jiraiya references through a new character and in a recent chapter, a shocking piece of information about the Sannin has been revealed.
Naruto fans who are currently following 'Boruto' by the chapter, have been freaking out over a major hint suggesting Jiraiya is alive. Moreover, Kashin Koji, a Kara member has been serving strong Jiraiya vibes for a while now, to a point that it irked readers. And as it turns out, he is indeed a character who shares DNA with the legendary Sannin. The big reveal arrived in Chapter 47 of the manga. But, how is that possible?
Let's back up a moment. You see, Orochimaru has a clone, Mitsuki. The same way, Jiraiya was also presumably cloned somewhere outside the canon revealed to readers and anime-watchers. However, Kashin doesn't seem to have any knowledge of it. So Jiraiya is back? Not quite. Kashin isn’t Jiraiya’s son or Jiraiya reincarnate, but he sure has Jiraiya's abilities down to knowing his jutsus and sharing a similar chakra. Basically, Jiraiya has made a comeback (sorta) to the manga and I must admit, this hits different. Some fans are already crying while others are wishing they'd leave the character alone. It is a mixed bag of emotions for the fandom.
But in the end, its another example of fan speculations proving to be very real plot arcs.

Boruto Finally Reveals Jiraiya's True Relation To Kashin Koji
One of the biggest mysteries in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has been Kashin Koji's identity in relation to Jiraiya. The truth is now revealed.
The truth is finally out regarding Kashin Koji's identity and his connection to Jiraiya in Boruto: Naruto Next Generations. Set during the reign of the Seventh Hokage, Boruto has introduced several long-running storylines that send seismic shock waves through the wider Naruto franchise. From Jigen and Karma to the Boruto vs. Kawaki flash-forward, the sequel manga evidently has little interest in half-measures. One of the most hotly discussed mysteries among Boruto fans, however, has been the true identity of Kashin Koji, and why he's so reminiscent of Jiraiya - Naruto's mentor and the self-styled "pervy sage" from the original series.
Originally introduced as a member of the evil Kara faction, Kashin Koji immediately attracted attention due to his striking visual similarity to Jiraiya. The plot thickened when Kashin Koji began using techniques straight from the Jiraiya playbook, including Toad Summons and the Rasengan. Koji even spoke of Konoha village in familiar terms, and his chakra failed to trigger the security system, suggesting he was once connected to Naruto's hometown. Along with Amado, Boruto revealed Kashin Koji as a double agent, working for Kara but ultimately intending to take down its leader, Isshiki Otsutsuki.

Boruto: Kashin Koji Is A Clone Of Jiraiya
When Kashin Koji finally went head-to-head against Jigen (the vessel of Isshiki Otsutsuki), it was only a matter of time beforeAmado's Jiraiya secret was unraveled and, though Boruto episode 214 is less clear about it, chapter 47 of the manga shockingly confirms that Kashin Koji is a clone of Jiraiya. The character's face is also shown in full for the first time after Jigen destroys Kashin Koji's mask, making the physical similarities to Jiraiya even more obvious. Kashin Koji appears considerably younger than his biological predecessor, but the red eye marks and nose mole are unmistakable, confirming suspicions many fans already had after noting the white mane of hair and fighting style.
When Kashin Koji arrived in Boruto, three main theories arose: he was either Jiraiya's son, Jiraiya himself, or a Jiraiya clone. The final option is definitely the least problematic, and fans will be relieved that Boruto hasn't diluted Jiraiya's story by bringing him back to life or introducing a secret lovechild (which wouldn't exactly be a surprise, but still...). Nevertheless, Boruto's clone reveal does raise some franchise-shaking questions. In the original Naruto story, Jiraiya's death came at the hands of Pain, who promptly tossed the corpse into the ocean. Jiraiya was then one of the very few characters not brought back by Kabuto's Edo Tensei in the Fourth Great Ninja War. In the manga, Kabuto was told resurrecting Jiraiya wasn't necessary, but the anime actually claimed his body was irretrievable, so how and when did Amado's clone come about?
Evidently, Amado has obtained a sample of Jiraiya's DNA somehow, but Boruto hasn't yet confirmed whether the Kara scientist recovered the body in its entirety (no great feat considering what else goes on in the world of Naruto and Boruto), or merely created Kashin Koji from a smaller sample Jiraiya left behind - a strand of hair, stray toenail clipping, etc. Jigen correctly deduces that Amado chose Jiraiya as Kashin Koji's template because of the Sannin's hopeful outlook and resolute belief that peace was possible. Since Amado is heavily inspired by Jiraiya's philosophy in Boruto, is it possible that Jiraiya himself knew about Kashin Koji's creation, and gave his DNA voluntarily?
More important than the method of Kashin Koji's birth is his future in the Boruto story. After being crushed by Jigen, Kashin Koji barely escapes via a well-timed Toad Summoning Technique, but as of Boruto chapter 62, the character is yet to return. With Naruto already noticing Kashin Koji's similarity to Jiraiya, Boruto needs to explore the Seventh Hokage's reaction to seeing a clone of his deceased master, while Kashin Koji must still confront Amado, who cruelly used him as a pawn in the fight against Jigen. Hopefully, Kashin Koji will return to Boruto in the near future, and hasn't fallen victim to the manga's change of direction after Masashi Kishimoto returned as writer.

Alive is jiraiya
Jiraiya is Alive in Boruto: Boruto anime may be filled with fillers and is reaching an anticipated kara arc as of now, but the story in manga is getting along really well and it’s freaking out Naruto fans completely.
Spoilers warning for all the anime watchers...
If you are a Naruto fan you will know there are certain deaths and moments that you still cannot get over and the death of Jiraya was one of them. It was specifically stated by Kishimoto sensei (Creator of Naruto) that our beloved “Pervy Sage” is gone for good as bringing him back will be too emotional for the fandom. His death had a huge impact on the whole Naruto universe and it was the reason that Naruto hired his will of fire after his demise.
Now the mangaka could have easily brought him back to life in the “Edo Tensei” arc of Naruto but he chose otherwise to keep the emotional balance of fans in check. There were separate reasons given for it in both manga and anime. The real reason Jiraiya isn’t reanimated is to guard the integrity of the character’s emotional final scenes. Now that Kishimoto is not the one writing Boruto the writers needed a befitting arc to explain how Jiraya came back to life after all these years and it looks like they have managed to do so.
Kashin Koji is the new Jiraiya?
Since the first appearance of Kashin Koji it was speculated that he is somehow related to Jiraya, the similarities were too obvious to not notice. For once Kashi knows too many techniques of Jiraya, during his first confrontation with team 7 he used toad summoning jutsu that and Jiraya was the one who carried toad summoning contract with him all the time, Fo god sake in hi final battle he was fighting with elder toads alongside him.
Second, Kashin knew how to use perfect Rasengan which was Jiraya’s one of the most fearsome attacks. And for last it was revealed that Kashin had a strong connection with Konoha Village. So, all the fingers were pointed in only one direction and fans were getting more excited with every passing chapter. And now in the 47th chapter of Boruto, it was revealed that Kashin Koji is the clone of Jiraya but how is that possible??
It is opening doors to many new questions and theories. Kashin Koji may very well be related to Orochimaru in some way as he knows how to make clones.But the fact that Jiraya’s corpse has not been shown to us even once in any way (neither dead nor reanimated) and the last time we saw him he was drowning but he was ‘alive’ and Kashin not knowing anything about any of it has opened so many new questions to be answered.
If Kashin is a clone where was he cloned? From where the DNA of Jiraya was found in such an excessive amount that it was enough to make a clone of him? All of these questions will be answered in the upcoming chapters of the manga. But Jiraya is back with us in some way that is for sure. And it is received with mixed emotions throughout the whole fandom.
What does ? Episode #133 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime. The episode is titled “The Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant” and takes place during the Tale of Jiraiya the Gallant arc. It adapts Naruto Manga chapters #380-383. He is slain by the Six Paths of Pain in battle.
Jiraiya was a legendary ninja. He trained Naruto on his most recognizable techniques and helping fight alongside the Hidden Leaf Village in matters far beyond his generation. He’s one of the most loved characters in the show, and his influence still resonates in major characters being developed today.
Using Sage Mode alongside an extra chakra boost from heirs of the Great Toad Sage Fukasaku and Shima, Jiraiya showed a new level of strength in the battle that ultimately proved the end.
What Episode Does Naruto Find Out Jiraiya Died?
Naruto finds out Jiraiya died in episode #152 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime. The episode is titled “Somber News” and takes place during the Pain’s Assault arc. It adapts Naruto Manga chapters #403-405 and #416. He is told by Tsunade in the Hokage’s office.
Does Jiraiya Get Revived?
No, Jiraiya does not get revived. Pain brought all who died during his assault on the Hidden Leaf Village back to life using the Samsara of Heavenly Life Technique, but Jiraiya had died too long ago for Pain’s jutsu to take effect on him.
How Does Jiraiya Die?
Jiraiya dies while on a mission to infiltrate the Rain Village in search of more information about the Akatsuki. Pain detects his entrance into the village and summons the Six Paths of Pain to stop him, overpowering Jiraiya’s sage mode. As he lay dying, he entrusted Fukasaku to relay information to the Hidden Leaf about a realization to defeating Pain.
Is Jiraiya Alive In Boruto 2020?
No, Jiraiya is not alive in Boruto 2020. However, a clone of Jiraiya named Koji Kashin was created by Amado, the head of Kara’ Research & Development division. Jiraiya’s clone appears for the first time in chapter #15 of the Boruto manga.
Does Tsunade Love Jiraiya?
Yes, Tsunade loves Jiraiya, but in a platonic way. The two were on the same ninja team as genin alongside Orochimaru, forming the trio referred to as the Three Legendary Sannin. Tsunade felt a deep sense of concern before Jiraiya’s mission to infiltrate the Hidden Rain village in search of information on Pain, an intuition that was ultimately correct. She grieved for his death and now feels protective over those who remain in her life.

Naruto: 10 Things Jiraiya Would Be Doing If He Were Still Alive
If Jiraiya had not died when he did in Naruto, he would certainly still be playing a big part in the events of the series.
Only a handful of anime series have managed to achieve the level of success and popularity that the Narutofranchise has. It accomplished this by providing fans with great action scenes, but it also told a good overall story filled with interesting and likable characters. One of these characters was Jiraiya, one of Konoha's Legendary Sannin, and despite his light-hearted and somewhat immature nature, he was actually one of the strongest ninjas in history.
RELATED: 10 Ways Naruto Would Be Different If Minato Were The Main Character
Over the course of the series, several of the main characters managed to cheat death, but Jiraiya was not one of them. Jiraiya's death is still considered to be one of the series' saddest and most impactful events, especially since he was not able to say goodbye to those he cared about. Had Jiraiya lived, there is no telling how the story would have unfolded, but one thing is certain - he would not have just sat around doing nothing.
10 He Would Be Writing Another Book
Jiraiya was a powerful shinobi, and like other ninja, he did not rely solely on missions to make money. The legendary Sannin happened to be a writer, and his first book turned out to be a commercial failure, but that did not discourage him.
As an author, he is best known for writing the Icha Icha series of adult novels, and the series happens to be very popular, to the point that even a genius like Kakashi was a fan of them. The book series made Jiraiya a lot of money, and he conducted a lot of "research" while writing them, so he would probably be working on another book if he was alive.
9 He Would Be Living With Tsunade
Tsunade has her fair share of strengths and weaknesses, but no one can deny the fact that she cared for Jiraiya. The pair basically grew up together, and they experienced a lot together, which explains why they were such close friends, but Jiraiya wanted to be more than that.
RELATED: 10 Times Boruto Ignored Everything The Original Naruto Stood For
Jiraiya loved Tsunade up until the day he died, and she knew that too, but she only realized it when it was too late. Shortly after the Fourth Great Ninja War, Tsunade decided to step down as Hokage, and if Jiraiya had not died, there is a good chance that they would have finally ended up together.
8 He Would Be Traveling The World
Jiraiya would have been a great Hokage, but he declined the position multiple times because he believed that he was not worthy of it. Whether he deserved the title or not doesn't matter, because if he did take the position, he would have hated it as it would mean he could not travel anymore.
Jiraiya traveled the entire ninja world in order to gather knowledge that could help his comrades, but he also traveled in order to find the Child of Prophecy that he was destined to train. That child was Naruto, but it is hard to believe that Jiraiya would have simply given up traveling after the Akatsuki threat was defeated.
7 He Would Have Been Investigating Kara Like He Did With The Akatsuki
Jiraiya is one of the strongest shinobi in Konoha's history, and it is also true that he can take on some pretty powerful opponents, but what many fans do not know is the fact that he actually specialized in intelligence gathering. During his travels, the Sannin was able to set up a spy network that ran throughout the Five Great Shinobi Countries.
It was thanks to this network that Jiraiya was able to gather intel on the Akatsuki, but it turns out that the Akatsuki was not the only secret evil organization. Kara is the name of the new organization that appears in Boruto, and if Jiraiya was still alive, he would have certainly been investigating them.
6 He Would Be Advising Naruto
Naruto hasn't been Hokage for very long, but he has already managed to prove that he is the best Hokage in history. The knuckleheaded ninja has come a long way, but like every Kage, he needs to have good advisors around to help him, and as smart as Shikamaru is, he is not enough.
RELATED: Naruto: 10 Ridiculous Mistakes Itachi Uchiha Made & How He Corrected Them
Jiraiya possesses a great deal of experience, and he has learned a great deal about the other nations through his travels and spy network, which means that he can be very helpful. Plus, Naruto is his godson, and he would do anything to help him succeed at his Hokage dream.
5 He Would Be Helping To Stabilize The Rain Village
Jiraiya trained several students over the decades, including Yahiko, Konan, and Nagato, and he was surprised to learn that they were two of the Akatsuki's most prominent members. He battled them when he infiltrated the Rain Village, and it was Nagato who killed him with Six Paths of Pain.
Had things gone differently, and Jiraiya managed to escape, there is no doubt that he would have returned to the Rain Village at some point to help the village transition towards peace. Had Konan lived, he probably would be helping her to lead the village, and if not, he would be protecting it in some other way in honor of his former students.
4 He Would Have Been Embracing His Perverted Nature
When their relationship was still new, Naruto called out Jiraiya and his inappropriate ways quite often, and he even went on to call him, "Pervy Sage." This may sound disrespectful, but it was completely warranted, as Jiraiya was known for peeping in on women.
Jiraiya had been doing things like this for years, and Tsunade almost killed him when she caught him trying to peep on her once. He claimed that he did this in order to gather research for his books, and seeing as he would definitely still be writing if he were alive, it stands to reason that his "research" would continue too.
3 He Would Be Trying To Master Sage Mode
During his battle with Pain, Jiraiya revealed Sage Mode for the first time, and he was nearly able to defeat the former Akatsuki leader with it. Sage Mode involves blending natural energy with one's chakra, and it significantly amplifies the user's abilities, while also giving them access to a variety of new techniques.
Jiraiya may be able to enter Sage Mode, but he hadn't mastered it, which is why he obtains a toad-like appearance with webbed hands and feet. If he had lived, he would have likely continued his training, and with the threat posed by the Akatsuki gone, he would have had plenty of time to do so.
2 He Would Be The One Watching Over Orochimaru
Orochimaru is regarded as one of the strongest shinobi in history, and he is one of only a handful of ninja who are actually stronger than Jiraiya. Jiraiya considered Orochimaru to be his closest friend, and when he defected from Konoha, it was Jiraiya who attempted to bring him back.
RELATED: 10 Anime Characters Who'd Be Better Rivals For Naruto Than Sasuke
By the end of the Fourth Great Ninja War, Orochimaru set his villainous ways aside, and he managed to form a truce with Konoha, but he is under constant surveillance by a team led by Yamato. Given their history, Jiraiya would have offered to be the one to keep an eye on him.
1 He Would Be Involved In Boruto & Himawari's Lives
By the end of the series, Naruto accomplished his dream and became Hokage, but he also got married and had a family of his own. Boruto may not act like his dad, but he certainly looks likes him, and Himawari is a kind soul, just like Hinata.
Jiraiya trained Minato, and he trained and partially raised Naruto, so it makes sense that he would be involved in both Boruto and Himawari's lives, seeing as he would be something like a grandfather to them. He would offer them wisdom and training, and if Boruto wanted, he could probably teach him the art of peeping too.
