Jiraiya is a rehashed Instructions so he's cool. Sage Training is meh. It can be like a Jiraiya's Hermit Dance from Set 20 but I'd rather play JHD over it most of the time.
Why would you play JHD over Sage Training. They are the same entrace cost same hand cost the only difference is you don't need a ninja for the effect and you can get stuff from chakra.
They could have weakened his injured stats instead of him losing his usual 7 combat.
I have to say as long as Jiraiya doesn't have a jutsu for me to really use with him I won't be playing him there are easier ways to get jutsu back.
