Minato's teammates, where are they? Still linked to Jiraiya?

I've been puzzled for a long time, but what happened to Minato's teammates? We all know that each of the Sannin had (has) one prodigy student. For instance Orochimaru had Anko, Jiraiya had Minato, and Tsunade has Shizune. But excluding Jiraiya both Orochimaru and Tsunade's prodigy based student was shown alone, that could mean that Orochimaru and Tsunade only had one student under their wing, or the others that were in the squads were deemed unimportant or dead. While during the 3rd Hokage's flashbacks, it shows Jiraiya and his young squad:

Due to the fact that all 3 of them were revealed I have a feeling that Minato's former teammates play some key role in the Naruto series.

Could they be working under cover for Jiraiya? I mean with all of these key details being revealed like Minato being Naruto's father I can't help but wonder when, or if Jiraiya's other students will be mentioned or revealed. They could be dead, but I still believe that they might play some kind of role. Perhaps Jiraiya's encounter with Pein will cause them to come out of hiding, or maybe they will find a way to help Naruto defeat Akatuski, I don't know, but I still think some kind of mystery is lying around some where...

maybe when hanzou gave them titles as legendary sannins... they can only train 1 student they choose from the academy or somewhere! That's not impossible, right?

Re: Minato's teammates, where are they? Still linked to Jiraiya?

I haven't seen too many thoughts on the boy, but the girl is a popular subject of speculation. As you may have heard, it's often speculated that Konan is none other than Minato's teammate. This is mainly based on the hairstyle. If you remove Konan's flower and replace it with a simple clip, her hairstyle almost exactly matches the girl's. Considering how elaborate this hairstyle is by Naruto standards, it stands a good chance of holding true on some level. There's the usual complaint that the anime version has her hair being a different color, but considering the anime depicted Obito in browns and greens when the manga put him in orange and blue...yeah...

Re: Minato's teammates, where are they? Still linked to Jiraiya?

i presume those characters are unimportant and they will not appear again.it's because they are careless wrote .I mean when kishi will make a background character then he looks just like that boy. He hasn't charisma or something that make it looks interesting.I am not sure about that girl but that boy is 100% a background character and will not apear.

Re: Minato's teammates, where are they? Still linked to Jiraiya?

This thread will fill in with pure spectaculation.Those guys are probably dead if you ask me.This is why they haven't mentioned so far but it has been said that Konan is the girl from Jiraiya's students.But it was based only on her hairstyle.Many theories came up from hairstyles like Obito=Tobi,Yondiame=Pein,Yondiame=Naturo 's dad.The only that came true was the last one.

Re: Minato's teammates, where are they? Still linked to Jiraiya?

Ah, someone finally asks that question. Id be surprised to ever hear anything about them. The story is already getting stuffed with new characters, to inroduce them might seem like overstuffing the story. Just seems to me that there is too much going on already for more new characters from the past.

And who in their right mind thinks that Konan is the girl from Jiraiyas team basd on hair? Their hairstyles arent the same in any way. The girl from J's team has her hair tied up like a topknot. Konan has some strange offset bun going on.

Not all jounin lead squads. Shikamaru's, Choji's, any Hyuga jounins, Ino's father, and so on. I think even if asked to lead a squad, Orochumaru would have declined because it would have interfered with his experiments, taking up too much time and having to protect or risk his life for someone else other than Tsunade or Jiraiya when they were growing up isnt his style. But just like Jiraiya personally trained Naruto, Orochumaru personally trained Sasuke, Gai personally trained Rock Lee, Kakashi personally trained Sasuke, Tsunade has Shizune and Sakura and Orochumaru had Anko. Some jounins see potential and choose to let a single stundent train up under them while others choose to be quad captains if qualified. Jiraiya at and old age can still be silly, funny, playful, and a normal guy and not all serious all of the time like many shinobi so you can imagine how he was when he was younger, he made a perfect squad leader for a group of Kids learning to be shinobi. Tsunade and Orochumaru always seem so serious and forceful while Jiraiya is more understanding.

If u look close at the picture of the fourth's partners, the chubby one has eyes something like Sarutobi and his hair line is the same too. His outfit is like the one Sarutobi wore when fighting Orochumaru and he is kinda husky like Asuma just a little bigger, but how you can imagine Asuma looking as a child. I could see why the fourth would want his relative in the fourth's squad. Maybe he is Asuma's older brother and Konohamaru's father. The other one has that same look in his eyes like I have seen in other Uchiha's, he has the dark hair and about the length most of them seem to keep it. He could have been the "like an older brother"/best friend that Itachi killed. Anyway I think that they are both dead. Thats the life for many shinobis, even great ones and Kages.

I would think that one of Sakura's parents would have told her to be nice to Naruto and not to treat him and think of him as everyone else did if that was the case. And it's just what I think but I can see Sasuke's mom not being a shinobi. I can see her being an average woman that Sasuke's father met and fell in love with.
