    Why didn't Kabuto summon Jiraiya with the rest of the "notable" ninjas?

    I thought it was weird that Kabuto didn't summon Jiraiya when he summoned the 'skilled ninjas that have made a name for themself'. He summoned Azuma and Haku and Zabuza....but no Jiraiya? It is possible he just hasn't summoned him yet.

    I see two options with this:
    1. Jiraiya hasn't been summoned yet, and will be summoned the next time Kabuto runs into Naruto.
    2. Jiraiya is not dead so he can't be summoned. BOOM! and yes I did go there.

    I really hope it's not #2 because I just want someone that died to actually be dead in this manga. BUT, we all know it's very possible that Jiraiya could be [magically] alive somehow with some unknown jutsu or something.

    I guess I assumed that Jiraiya was one of the most notable ninjas in all naruto-verse so Kabuto would use him right away...before I even read ch. 515. We've never heard anything about Dan beside that he was Tsunade's lover...and I see the obvious reason Kabuto summoned Dan...being the dead lover and all. But Jiraiya could easily have cause a similar emotional stir with Tsunade and beaten her and then the summoned Jiraiya could have fought Naruto and told him that he killed the current Hokage (Tsunade) to stir up more emotions in Naruto.

    Any other reason why kabuto didn't summon him off the bat to show that he can? I wouldn't like it, but this situation points out that it is very possible that he isn't dead.

    I dunno...what do you guys think?

    Re: Why didn't Kabuto summon Jiraiya with the rest of the "notable" ninjas?

    He did summon them...
    Kishi just didn't want to ruin everything...

    We can certainly expect the return of Jiraiya and Danzou, at the very least...

    Plus, there's still this special zombie that frigthen Madara that we still don't know.


    True love will conquer everything
    The question now is : which of those two loves, is the true one?!

    i think he has summoned him,we could see someone else behind the people.For Danzo,Kisame,Konan i think he can't summoned them because they have just died,maybe for the EDO-tensei it has to make a contract with the dead people.and Kabuto would take more time for do that

    Maybe kabuto is not aware jiraiya died? Anyways, I do think jiraiya will be summoned in time. Kabuto has to have a few surprises for later. There has to be some emotional turmoil for naruto when he finally joins the way. It's also plausible orochimaru and kisame will be summoned in due time too. It'd be interesting if rin is summoned too, kakashi would be pissed about that.

    what do you mean by putting deidaras´s pieces together, edo tensei doesnt use the REAL body of the summoned person, it is mud or something similar
    excuse my poor english

    True!

    If he wanted to mess with Kakashi's head like he's messing with the others, he should ressurect Obito and Rin...
    If he didn't, maybe it means something else...

    *Cough* Maybe Madara is Obito and the special summon in the casket is Rin!! *Cough*

    Re: Why didn't Kabuto summon Jiraiya with the rest of the "notable" ninjas?

    I think Jiraiya might appear in the future, but I think it's just wishful thinking. Though it really seems odd that he wasn't among the notable ninjas, since Sannin are legends, and besides that there was a man who rivaled the Sannin in strength: White Fang. So he should appear as well, considering the definition of the last group Kabuto summoned. Well hope dies last, but I think this is where we bump into to mechanics and the way one prepares Edo Tensei, for which there's another thread.

    Not summoning Jirayia is somewhat stupid. He is one of the strongest nins ever. So wtf is up with summoning Azuma, Haku and Zabuza but not Jirayia ? If we compare them to J man they are just some lossers.

    God i whant J man back ffs. If he is alive it will be the best think to happen to this manga (from my point if view).

    He showed someone in 516 that he didn't show in 515. I'm thinking Kabuto is still keeping some aces up his sleeve.

    he might havr summoned jiraiya and if he did he should be shown only when narutos in battle so his appearence will be a cliffhanger with the last page being naruto with a shocking/sad/ maybe even abit of happy face and jirayas face in the next chapter with an epic entrance =)

    I think Kishi didn't make Kabuto summon J-man simply because seeing J-man used like that would disturb not only Naruto characters but readers as well

    on a serious note though, I think its just a matter of time. Summoning of Kisame, Danzo, Konan and Sakumo is an absolute MUST too!

    It's likely that Orochi-Kabuto will summon White Fang to fight Kakashi and Jiraiya to fight Naruto at some point.

    Problem with Jiraiya ressurection: how will he enter sagemode? I doubt Ma and Pa would be willing to fuse with Zombiyara.
