Because translating spoilers just isn't enough! :p
367: Itachi and Sasuke.
Sasuke and Itachi… hatred and malice. Steeped in darkness, their battle begins!
A sudden, shocking reunion!
Itachi: You’re taller…or is it just me?
Sasuke: And you’re exactly the same… right down to the cold stare…
Itachi: I see you’ve outgrown the urge to charge at me, yelling like a madman…
Sasuke: You don’t know the first thing about me…
Sasuke: Just *how* much hatred drives me… just *how* strong it’s made me…
Sasuke: You know absolutely nothing…
Jiraiya: God, you get worse when you drink than I do.
Jiraiya: How ‘bout we sit down for a bit?
Tsunade: Akatsuki… we’re talking about the guy bossing those monsters around.
Tsunade: There’s no telling how strong he is… plus, you’d only be sneaking into the waiting arms of the enemy.
Jiraiya: Alright then…time to get goin’!
Tsunade: I want you back here alive, you hear.
Tsunade: If you were to die on me too… I’d…
Jiraiya: Cry over me? I’m flattered!
Jiraiya: But I bet you won’t be cryin’ as much as when Dan died!
Tsunade: You moron…
Jiraiya: Right, so how ‘bout we make the most of those gambling abilities of yours… You bet on my death…
Jiraiya: You’re guaranteed to lose, of course.
Jiraiya: And if I win, ‘soon as I’m back here alive and well, we ….
Tsunade: Wha - ?
Jiraiya: Hahaha! I’m kidding! I’m kidding!
Jiraiya: I’m actually grateful, you know.
Jiraiya: Men grow stronger by being dumped!
Jiraiya: In other words, you’re not a real man until you’ve been dumped so many times it’s funny! Enough times to *write a book* about it!
Tsunade: So you’re not a real man until you’re strong enough, eh?
Jiraiya: Well…something like that. Plus, real men don’t go around *looking* for happiness and stability.
Tsunade: Oh, puh-lease. You guys can’t even get dumped by yourselves.
Jiraiya: Haha! touche!
Tsunade: If anything goes wrong, you send word to me by one of your toads. I’ll be there in a second!
Jiraiya: Oh, no you *won’t*. You’re not setting foot outside this village.
Jiraiya: Konoha can’t do without you right now.
Tsunade: We got more than enough Hokage candidates here.
Jiraiya: You can’t change elder every other year and expect the village to be stable.
Jiraiya: And there’s no one better suited to the task than you right now!
Tsunade: There’s Kakashi, right? And don’t forget Naruto, who’s always been waiting in the wings.
Jiraiya: Can’t argue about Kakashi…
Jiraiya: But Naruto, he may have your famous necklace, but he’s still got a long way to go.
Tsunade: Well, you sure invested in him! I’m hearing this from the guy who taught him Rasengan!
Jiraiya: Oh, nostalgia got the better of me, that’s all…
Jiraiya: ‘felt like I was teaching Minato all over again…
Tsunade: Namikaze Minato…*
Minato means, among other things, "port." I have no idea if it's meant to have another meaning here, since it's written in Katakana. Namikaze is "waves and wind", or "waves produced by strong winds."
Tsuande: Yeah, they’re alike, alright…
Jiraiya: Oh, no, Minato had talent like you only see once in a generation… the world doesn’t see geniuses of his caliber often.
Jiraiya: Kind and compassionate, but nerves of steel.
Jiraiya: In the blink of an eye he was already Hokage.
Jiraiya: Never had kids of my own, so I don’t know what it’s like being a parent, but…
Jiraiya: If he’d been my boy, I’d ‘ve been damned proud!
Tsunade: Hahah! Well, now that you mention it…
Tsunade: Maybe they’re not *that* much alike…
Tsunade: When you get right down to it, it’s his *mom* he takes after, of course.
Jiraiya: Ah, the Whirlpool Country born Kunoichi*…
*I don't come up with these names. "Uzu" = whirlpool. "Uzu no Kuni" = Whirlpool Country.
Tsunade: Right. His personality and Ninjutsu…
Tsunade: Are just like Uzumaki Kushina’s.
Jiraiya: Oh, yeah! That’s what her name was!
Jiraiya: Red haired, a tomboy, couldn’t shut up… if you didn’t know better you’d think she was a real boy!
Tsunade: Kushina grew up to be a real beauty, but it’s his father Naruto got his looks from.
Jiraiya: Which is why I could just see him in Naruto.
Jiraiya: To me, it’s like I was looking at my own grandson.
Jiraiya: Alright, I’d better get going…
Jiraiya: Oh yeah, before I go, one more thing…
Jiraiya: Be on your guard against “Ne*”…
Tsunade: Yeah… I know.
Jiraiya: Right. That’s all I’m asking.
Jiraiya: Well, I’ll be seein’ ya!
Itachi: You’ve grown strong…
Itachi: Come alone to the Uchiha Hideout.
Itachi: You can have your revenge there.
Jiraiya: Alright, I’ve made it in!
Jiraiya: A bit too easily, I might add.
Jiraiya: Now let’s see what we got here…
Girl: What is it?
Pain: Someone’s standing in my rain… this Chakra… it’s quite the strong intruder we have here.
Sidebar: Sasuke and Itachi head for their final confrontation! Meanwhile, Jiraiya infiltrates Amegakure, where he's greeted by ominous rainfall! Next issue: Contact!
How will Pain deal with Jiraiya’s intrusion!? Next time: “The legendary SanNin!”
