Naruto meets up with Nagato, who tries to grab him one last time, but in his haggard form he can’t top Naruto. Naruto says that although he cannot forgive Nagato for his crimes, he wants to talk to him before he decides what to do next. Since they were both students of Jiraiya, Naruto asks Nagato why he has completely abandoned Jiraiya’s views on the world. Interested in how much Naruto’s views differ from his own, Nagato tells how the Hidden Leaf shinobi killed his defenseless parents when he was a child. Overwhelmed with grief, Nagato awakened his Rinnegan to seek revenge.
