Just when you thought there couldn't be any more weird, strange and/or random ninja groups, they come up with Messenger Ninjas. I have to say that I can see the point of cooking ninjas (barely). But messenger ninjas? Isn't that why real ninjas exist? There have been plenty of missions that involve the ninja carrying messages from country to country. Why are messenger ninja needed? It's silly and it make no sense, nor is it entertaining.
That said, I hope I'm not the only one who thought that Jiraiya was a fat out of shape guy. But did you see him when he was in the hot bath? ;)
