Nice thread! It's too bad... the sexual tension between those two was intense! Both of them put up false fronts to mask their inner selves and both overplayed their hands. Say what you will of plot fillers, lame storyline... My favorite aspect of Naruto has been watching the maturity and growth of several of the main characters as well as supporting ones. Who here wouldn't have gotten a kick out of seeing Jiraiya and Tsunade waking up in bed with sake bottles scattered about and his face buried in her chest? Oh! The drama!!
