Fans of Naruto thought long ago that they broke their hearts. While Boruto pieces are tragic, they do not equate to Naruto Shippuden’s absolute heartbreak. All sorts of fan favourites died in the series, and the recent episode in Boruto recalled one lost ninja in the worst way.
After all, saying goodbye to a friend is never easy, and it is even harder if that friend is your parishioner as well. Only ask Naruto, because of Jiraiya he knows everything about it.
Boruto recently went live with a new episode and fans met Jiraiya. After fearing Sasuke, the mentor still teaches Naruto how to sync his chakra with Boruto. Your session interrupted when Urashiki appeared again, and it didn’t go as planned by Jiraiya.
Fans panicked as Urashiki killed Jiraiya, as you can see in the slides above. Urashiki was able to carry all chakras away from Jiraiya and remove them from the world, thanks to antagonist blue Rinnegan. Jiraiya left without resources to the horror of all for death. The Legendary Sannin remains alive until now and tradition orders the ninja to continue like this. Nonetheless, the sudden attack brought Jiraiya’s actual end by Pain back painful thoughts, and fans will need some time to recover from the trauma.

Established initially as Shueisha’s Shonen Jumper Weekly by Masashi Kishimoto in 1999, Naruto follows a young ninja who seeks to become the ruler of his home village and a hidden devil inside him. The series covered 700 chapters and was adapted by Studio Pierrot and Aniplex from 2002 to 2017 to form an anime series. The show was sufficiently successful in justifying Boruto: Naruto next generation that has surrounded many of its key figures, such as Naruto and Hinata, years since the events of the original Naruto story.
