I don't think it will have major effect on Naruto even if Jiraiya were resurrected. The act might just have the opposite reaction, infuriating him. Although I am interested if it does happen since it opens new plot settings;flashbacks, and gives Naruto a sense of closure, being able to give his final goodbyes.
Acceptance from the Waterfall of Truth, Revelation of his heritage and Konoha's recognition. Mentally and emotionally: Naruto is well prepared.
I am more interested about the Uzumaki Clans destruction and hopes it will be revealed in this war. Although I won't be surprised if the Uchiha had something to do with the Genocide.
I wouldn't be surprised if Nagato, Tobi or Madara killed them all to find out their sealing technques which were then used to seal the Biju in the demon statue.
hit Sasuke in the face, and didn't set his head on fire? That's about as believable as Sasuke having the time and chakra to summon Manda, take control of him, hop in his mouth, and cancel the summon milliseconds before an enormous explosion.

Well we don't know if that hand actualy broke trough Susano and i really don't belive it had. They probably had some Susano whatever between the hand and Sasuke's face and that Susano bones or whatever hit Sasuke in the face.
1 thing is for sure, there is no clear hit in the face:
Karin getting hit by a tentacle was set on fire:
I do belive Sasuke never received a DIRECT hit. The force was propagated trough Susano.
Raikage alone was never shown to have broken through any Susanoo, be it Sasuke's or Madara's. The most he could do is break one or two ribs, and that's already stretching the limits of his strength, since he was shown to be weaker than Tsunade.
So Raikage breaking through Sasuke's Susanoo completely and hitting him with full force is as unlikely as Lee performing a ninjutsu.

Considering that we see shards of Susanoo flying places, I'd say that he broke through. We already know that the Liger bomb cracked the ribs, So the chop was what was needed to break them. Lets Say he didn't hit him in the face, I still believe he did, that's a neck shot at the very least. So Sasuke would have been more preoccupied with putting the flame out on his high colar than manipulation of the flames to protect himself, because of the fact that the flame would have been ridiculously close to his face.

I'm pretty sure that while he can burn from his own Amaterasu, he probably wouldn't burn that badly from Enton (shape manipulated jutsu are usually weaker than their inital forms, proven with Chidorigatana compared to Chidori). Just like how he doesn't electrocute himself every time he uses Chidori, or blow his lungs to smithereens every time he uses Goukakyuu, an attack created from his chakra likely wouldn't do too much damage too him in certain stages. As for why his face didn't burn away from Raikage's hand hitting his neck... maybe the shards of bone that broke off and were burning, burned away before they could touch hijm and catch him on fire.
Not to mention, it didn't touch his hair and probably only a bit of his clothing. For a flame to continue to burn something it needs time to ignite it in the first place. Amaterasu has to ignite something before it can burn it away, right?
As far as the bolded part goes, that seems very farfetched.
So if Raikage actualy made contact with sasuke's body, it should have ignited imediately... This probably means he never landed a direct hit on sasuke, something like Lee against gaara, he thought he had touched him, but he still had a layer of sand beneath...
sasuke says no.
Well after watching the latest episode of shippuden, I had this thinking why didn't Kishimoto just make Haku a girl instead of a tranny. I then came to realize that it could be a huge huge hint Kishi gave to his readers - Naruto is gay.
He probably likes pretty boys like Haku and Sasuke. Probably that is the reason for all the forgiveness and "friendship" he had for Sasuke lol..
may well be the case
naruto's obsession with sasuke has been uncanny and incredible in any platonic sense of the word 'friendship'
i've always joked about how naruto might have feelings for sasuke, and i have always seriously thought the joke might be true
it's kishi's weak plot trying to equate naruto v sasuke with hashirama v madara and uchiha ancestor v senju ancestor that's the problem, he's not making naruto's inclination to ultimately fight sasuke believable
the only explanation that works, should we ignore kishi's weak plots and try to make sense of the storyline, would be naruto having closet homosexuality
I don't think it means Naruto is gay, it just makes the manga looks unbelievable fake. No one would go through such great lengths to save a friend.
