    Re: Dokonjo Ninden by Jiraiya

    I bought the book and I confirm it's Dokonjo Ninden.

    Kishimoto is the one in charge of the illustrations. Alterno's second picture is Jiraiya's authograph, to give us this just a few weeks after we saw Naruto's, nice one Kishi. Anyway, there isn't must pictures, the cover, Jiraiya's autograph, a sepia picture of Minato, Jiraiya and Kushina, a region map for the story, a simplyfied region map with some mark and Jiraiya's dedicace to Nagato. There's also a reprint of the manga pages we got in the regular chapters.

    As for the story, wherever I look on and in the book, Kishimoto and Higashiyama and credited together as author (著者), Kishimoto clearly did the illustrations but it's not clear to which point is collaboration on the story extend. On the Shueisha's site, they say Higashiyama is the author (著者) and Kishimoto is the original work author and the illustrator (原作・イラスト).

    I can't, my old computer is dead and my new one run on vista. On the other hand, my scanner's driver wasn't updated to vista (probably because it was too cheap to begin with), so my computer don't know how to run it.

    I need a new scanner or to find a way to resurect my old computer. Unless one of you have a alternative driver for a Canon F915900? It's for humanity's greater good, I assure you.

    Ok, in an attempt to not completely waste this post, let me add the main characters list:

    Naruto : jounin from Shuku
    Tsuyu : jounin from Shuku
    Renge : jounin from Shuku
    _______________________________

    Nikaku : shinobi from Shuku
    Shima : shinobi from Kon
    _______________________________

    Kokage : Head of the Shuku village
    Muei : Head of the Kotsu village
    Kaosu : Head of the Kon village

    The last text page bear the number 252. There are five chapters, a prologue and an epilogue. The chapter titles are:

    Prologue: オレの名前は (my name is) -> p. 9
    Chapter 1: 任務 (mission) -> p. 15
    Chapter 2: スリーマンセル? (three man cell?) -> p. 57
    Chapter 3: それぞれの戦い (each one's battle) -> p. 113
    Chapter 4: この世の終わり (the end of this world) -> p. 167
    Chapter 5: 諦めない心 (a heart that doesn't give up) -> p. 211
    Epilogue: いつか、きっと (one day, surely) -> p. 247

    Re: Dokonjo Ninden by Jiraiya

    ¥10,193, but I had the 7th DVD of the Sasuke Arc (for the special DVD) and the latest BEST HIT NARUTO 1st print with the creditless opening DVD.

    So, 10,193 - 3,281, - 2,569, - 743 = ¥3,600 of fees, ¥1,200 per item.

    To stay on topic somehow, let me add Tsuyu and Shima are girls, Renge is a boy.

    The prologue is the novel version of the few pages we had in the regular manga chapters.

    Chapter one have Naruto and Tsuyu (a medic nin) being summun by their teacher, Shuu, to a meeting with the third head of the Shuku village, Kokage. They are given the mission to take back Renge, their former teammate, and eliminate him as a nukenin. Then we have a lot of talk, flashback and history stuff.

    I'll report on the four remaining chapters later.

    Can you post pics of the region maps? Unless they're the same ones as we've already seen. But it sounds like the maps point out where Jiraiya traveled?

    That's why I always order more than one item at a time.

    I can't, my scanner is useless now that my computer run on Vista. As for the Jiraiya's travels, the map dosen't seem to be anything like the Narutoverse world map.

    To sum it up, there are four ninja villages surronding a mountain called Hyakkizan, the mount of the 100 tortules. To the North, the village has 8 houses and a big tower in the middle, it's name is Kotsu (忽), "neglected". To the East, the village has 4 houses and is called Kon (混), "confusion". To the West, the village has 4 houses as well and is called Ton (沌), "chaos". The village to the South is called Shuku (儵), "fast", it's the protagonists' village. It has 8 houses and a kind of castle or temple in the middle. The title of the map read as 儵忽混沌絵図, "the map of the rapid spreading of chaos".

    Both villages of the middle picture and the mountain are inside a commun border and they say in the first chapter that the konton village split into the Kon and Ton villages at the end of the last world war.

    The simpler version of the map has a arrow going from mount Hyakki to the Kon village which has an X on. They say Renge is going to Kon. Which is the sketch of the mission Naruto and Tsuyu are asked to do.
