He didn't care If she went through with killing Karin. He just wanted both of them died In the end! Was hilariously dark. What sucked me back into this series again.
As for mt favorite character, I like Jiraya. Sure he was introduced as an old man pervert. But deep down he was a shinobi who wanted the best for everyone he cared for. He carried a deep regret of always failing in his life. Admits it in his dieing thoughts. To find him, an anime character, be so human and deal with how life can be sometimes was truly something I admired. He was a fun character along with being deep. It was needed for him to die, but he will be missed dearly.
Some of his insanity was cool. I also enjoyed Karin getting wrecked way more than I should have. It also made sense when he tried to kill Team 7. My main reason for disliking him was how willing he was to destroy something for no reason. And even when he found out what really happened with Itachi to the point where they said "It was Danzo. It wasn't anyone else but Danzo" Sasuke still wants to wreck things.
Your Jiraiya post made me think about one of my other favorites. Danzo. He never wanted anything but to protect the village but I feel as though he drew the short straw with everything.
