[side text: Jiraiya and Pein... once master and pupil, now their battle begins!!]
Jiraiya: You've really changed, Nagato.
[TN: Summoning Technique]
Jiraiya: !

#374: Ascendance To Divinity
[insert text: Pein's teacher...!!]
Jiraiya: Whoa there... // (Bubbles?)

Jiraiya: (Since he's my student, it's to be expected... he's going straight for my weak point. // He wants to wash away my oil.)
Pein: Konan, you fall back.
Jiraiya: !

Jiraiya: Ranjishigami no Jutsu!!
[TN: Raging Lion's Mane Technique]

Pein: !

Jiraiya: Nagato... / There are a lot of things I'd like to ask you. // What happened to Yahiko?

Nagato: Yeah... // I remember that guy.
Jiraiya: ?!
Pein: That guy... he died a while back.
Jiraiya: Nagato... You...
Flashback!Nagato: I just want to protect the two of them. // No matter how much pain it brings me to do that.
Jiraiya: What the hell happened to you? // Back then, you...

Pein: Nothing... // I have merely been engaging in battle. // Too many people die in this place. // Their pain was what caused me to grow up.
Jiraiya: What are you talking about...?
Pein: Even an ignorant and foolish child... / ...can grow up into a man once he knows pain. // One's words and one's thoughts will change accordingly.
Jiraiya: Are you trying to say that casting aside your feelings for your friends is just a part of growing up?!

Pein: Sensei... you are still merely a man. // But within that endless life of pain... / I grew still further, and ceased to be a man.
Jiraiya: ...What?
Pein: Yes... the man... // ...became a God.
Jiraiya: .........

Pein: Now that I am a God, my words and my thoughts are those of a God. // Sensei... you are still merely a man... / I cannot expect you to comprehend that which I say.
Jiraiya: You have fallen so far...
Pein: Things that I could not see when I was still a man are clear to me as a God. // And since I am a God, I can do things that would be impossible for any human. // To put it simply, this is evolution.
Jiraiya: What exactly are you planning to do?
Pein: I shall put an end to this pitiful world where men do nothing but fight. // That is the work of a God.

Jiraiya: If that is your aim, what need do you have for the Bijuu?
Pein: You are going to die, at any rate. / So I shall allow you the privilege of hearing my true objective.
Jiraiya: ......?
Pein: I intend to use the Bijuu to create a new Kinjutsu.
[TN: Kinjutsu = Forbidden Technique]
Pein: That jutsu will be able to lay waste to an entire great country with a single usage... // This Kinjutsu will be a weapon of unprecedented power and magnitude.
Jiraiya: How do you intend to use that to put an end to conflict? // Surely such a weapon would only cause the fighting to escalate?

Pein: The nations fight amongst themselves... // What is the quickest and simplest way to put an end to this...... Jiraiya-sensei?
Jiraiya: That's what I'm asking you! / Answer my question!
Pein: The answer is simply to grant the warring countries this Kinjutsu weapon. // Once they have the weapon, somebody is bound to use it.
Jiraiya: What are you talking about?
Pein: Hundreds of millions of people shall be wiped out in an instant. / And then the masses shall live in terror! // People, countries, the world... // They shall all know pain!!

Pein: The fear shall act as a deterrent... // The conflict will end. // One might say that this world is on the path to stability... that the world is "growing up". // Pain will force the world to mature. / In the same way as my own younger self. // The hand of God is necessary to guide the world, to set it on the path to maturity. // This world is still as a child.
Jiraiya: You intend to teach the world of pain to force it to mature... / That's your so-called duty?
Pein: Indeed... / I am a God who believes in the principle of peace.
Jiraiya: That's some sense of humour you've got yourself... Nagato.

Jiraiya: ?!
Pein: Over here, Sensei.
Jiraiya: ...So that's what you summoned with the Kuchiyose?

Pein: From where I stand, you are a miniscule existence, one who has failed to mature.
Jiraiya: GAHAHAHAHAHAH!! // Kuchiyose no Jutsu!! // A kid like you treating me as if I was the kid! // I was never a "man" to begin with!! // Tears of blood, brimming up through wrath! / Sennin of the legendary Sannin! // Toad Demon of Myouboku Mountain!! / I am... Jiraiya-sama~~~! // Ugh...!

Pein: Truly, you have been unable to mature... // You are as much a fool as you always were.

Jiraiya: Oi, watch it!! // Gamaken-san! Don't shake the ground when I'm striking my pose!!
Gamaken: You're the one who's a clumsy oaf...
[side text: A reliable nakama?! Ken-san makes his appearance!!]
[bottom text: Furious combat! Where will this summoning battle lead...?! Next issue, "A True Monster"!!]
