Re: The Genius FC
I agree about the fight. I thought that since it was an Akatsuki vs. Jiraiya, it'd be awesome. But it turned out that both were boring with their summons, Pein's constant "We are Pein", and Jiraiya's attempts to figure out what happened. Plus, Jiraiya's Toad form was...umm, not the prettiest or coolest. Ma and Pa rocked, though.
If it weren't for his Rinnegan and godly abilities, then I would say no, he is not a genius. But if he were younger, and didn't have those abilities, I'd think he'd be an awesome hardworker kind of genius, since all he wanted to do was to protect Konan and Yahiko.
