Since Naruto's teacher has been knocked out, Naruto demands that the stranger become his teacher instead, but he has other plans. Naruto's Sexy Jutsu may be just the thing to get this pervert's attention.moreless

  • A day in training with a legendary ninja.

    With Ebisu KO'd, Naruto demands that Jiraiya supervise his training. After long periods of push and pull between the two, Jiraiya is convinced after Naruto reveals his sexy technique, the same technique that defeated Ebisu as well. During the training, Jiraiya notices a seal that makes Naruto's chakra inconsistent. He removes it and Naruto is suddenly able to walk on water flawlessly. Ebisu approaches Jiraiya, who reveals him as one of the legendary Sannin.

    Like before there is nothing really special about this episode. There just wasn't that much excitement at all, kind of just adding to the lessons of chakra science, although there were some brief instances of interesting moments, overall it just felt pretty bland. Though how the episode ended added some excitement with the revealing of Jiraiya as a person who is considered on the same level as Orochimaru.moreless
  • Naruto meets Jiraiya. One of the 3 legendary sanin.

    Naruto's training with Ebisu is interrupted by the appearance of a stranger. Ebisu spots him peeking into a women's bathhouse and goes to try and stop him. The stranger summons a large toad who uses its tongue to wrap around Ebisu and knock him to the ground. With Ebisu knocked out Naruto demands that the stranger, who we find out is Jiraiya, train him. Jiraiya refuses to do so because he wants to do research for his next book. Naruto calls him a "pervy sage" making Jiraiya dislike him more. Jiraiya takes off to do more research and Naruto follows him...moreless
  • This episode was just too funny.

    I loved this episode because it was so funny and how Naruto mentions that he already had beaten Ebisu once already with Naruto's secret silly jutsu. I really liked the end of the episode how Jiraiya at the end takes Naruto from Ebisu and how he summoned the toad and how it knokced Ebisu out of the way. Earlier in the episode Naruto and Ebisu had a competition that he could run away from but Naruto looses the challenge and Ebisu must train and along the way I saw this episode a long time and there were alot of funny parts that I can't remember really well.moreless
  • Rofl The Pervy Sage hahaha

    Eibsu has just been knocked out by an old man spying on the ladies' bath house. Now, poor Naruto is without a trainer. Naruto begs the old man to be his trainer who, by the way, is one of the Legendary Sanin, Jiraiya. Jiraiya refuses and runs away. Naruto eventually chases him down and makes him train him due to Naruto's Sexy Jutsu. Jiraiya realizes after a while that Naruto is the Demon Fox. He spots the seal Orochimaru put on Naruto during the Chunin Exam, and releases it. The block on Naruto's chakra is gone, and he finds that he can easily walk on water now. Then Jiraiya lectures Naruto on chakras.moreless
  • The worst episode ever.

    This episode isnt nessesary but I hate it.Narutos jutsu makes me mad.They should not make more episodes like this.Pure ungenius.Naruto should not use his you know what jutsu more often.It makes him look so not alive.This episode is mostly about a pervert named jaraiyha who wants to look at women.But Naruto wants Jaraihya to train him.Jaraiyha dosent want to train Naruto turns into the you know what jutsu and peruades Jaraiyah to train him.Its good that narutos you know what jutsu has clouds.So now Jaraiyah will train naruto.Man Jaraiyah is so perverty .Naruto didnt like what he did but he had to do it.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the U.S. on Cartoon Network, on some of the shows on the bottom half of the tv, it says the new episode of Naruto comes on tonight and it also says, "Jiraiyah Returns!", meaning Jiraiya's name was spelled wrong.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Jiraiya: Did you fall on your head when you were a baby? Is that what makes you this way?

    • (Naruto jumps on a log to find a stuffed animal instead of Jiraiya)
      Naruto: A Substitution Jutsu huh. Not bad old man. (Runs off)
      (Stuffed animal transforms into Jaraiya)
      Jiraiya: That was close. Little squirt, he'll have to be a lot smarter than that to outfox the Toad Mountain Sage.
      Naruto: (Pops out from behind the log) Oh yeah, how am I doing now?

    • (Jiraiya takes off in a whirlwind)
      Naruto: That was cool! I don't care if he is a dirty old man, that guy's the real deal.

    • Naruto: Where's your sense of responsibility? You've gotta train me.
      Jiraiya: Not on your life! I can't work with someone who has no respect for a true artist.
      Naruto: Uhhhh...
      Jiraiya: Besides, I don't like kids.

    • Naruto: (To Ebisu) awake? One way to find out, Hidden Finger Jutsu, 1,000 Years of Death.
      (Pokes him in the bum)

    • Jiraiya: You see, I'm a novelist. I am a writer of great this!
      (Jiraiya pulls out Make-out Paradise)
      Naruto: Huh? WHAT?! YOU WROTE THAT?!
      Jiraiya: Yes! I see you know it! (Thinking) Heh heh, I'm famous and it's not even out in paperback yet!

    • Naruto: I was right! You are pathetic. You're nothing but a lousy little pervert!
      Jiraiya: I am not a little pervert.
      Naruto: Oh yeah? Then tell me, what are you?!
      Jiraiya: I'm a big one.
      Naruto: (Eyes twitching) Oh great...that makes all the difference.

    • Jiraiya: Stop calling me perverted hermit! I'm a great man, you know!
      Naruto: A great perverted hermit?

      ~Japanese version

    • Jiraiya: You Passed!
      Naruto: This guy is an idiot.

      ~Japanese version

    • Jiraiya: (Upon seeing the Sexy no Jutsu) What do you call this technique?
      Naruto: Um...Sexy no Jutsu...
      Jiraiya: Brilliant! You're a genius!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: I'm starting to think this technique is only effective against adults.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Hey! You are just a pervert, you perverted hermit!
      Jiraiya: No, I am no ordinary pervert!
      Naruto: What? Don't play dumb with me!
      Jiraiya: I'm a super pervert!
      Naruto: Damn, he openly admitted it!

      ~Japanese version

  • NOTES (15)


    • Jiraiya is named after the character of the same name from Jiraiya Goketsu Monogatari (Ž™—'–ç'Œ†•¨Œê, "The Tale of the Gallant Jiraiya"). The Jiraiya in this story excelled in summoning a giant toad and toad magic. In that story, Jiraiya and Tsunade were a married couple.

    • Jiraiya acts just like Master Roshi, a character from the Dragon Ball series. Master Roshi was also crazy about girls, only Jiraiya is way more crazier about girls than he is. This may be because Masashi Kishimoto was inspired by the Dragon Ball series and Akira Toriyama.
