Re: Can/Will Pain Take Jiraiya's Body?
For a body collector it doesn't sound impossible for him to take jiraya's. After all he gets his hands on a very useful and powerful body (a sannin). Damn him. But if he doesn't have a way to stick that arm back (which I don't know for sure), than it's not really worth for him to take it. Plus the throat...
But it's certain he doesn't have this in mind right now while they're fighting. I mean Pain's not fighting him now thinking he'll take his body after he defeats him. Or else he wouldn't damage him that bad. No arm, pierced shoulder, weird throat... and the list will continue in the next chapter.
