The Sannin are back to academy by Umaken The Sannin are back to academy by Umaken
This is a picture, made for Club-Sannin September contest "Back to school". I don't know why, but I saw this as a kind of field practice. There was a filler in anime, where genins where supposed to teach academy students survival skills. So I resumed that pedagogical practice was a common thing in Konoha. And this picture came to my mind at once.

That's what could happen if Sarutobi told his apprentices to give some lectures to youngest students...

The Sannin here are not older than 18.
The book Orochimaru's reading titeled "The Preservation of corpses, ch.2" (I made too small letters..)
I think that Jiraiya has skipped from azimuth calculating to something more heroical pretty soon. Looks like now he is very close to Onbaa story...

(And - yes, you may enjoy trying to identify some of future Konoha ninjas ;)

Oro doesn't want to be part of it.  Tsunade minds her business.  But yet, Jiraiya is the only one that cares.

OMG! So cute! Okay, let's see here, from left to right: Kiba, Shikamaru, Ino, Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Shino. Did I get that right?

Also, love Jiraiya in this.

Alright, there's Shikamaru with his ponytail, then Naruto, then Sakura, and I think that's Sasuke with the Uchiha fan (but his hair is too flat so maybe that's someone else)... And I forgot what their ages are supposed to be, So I COULD be trying to identify the wrong generation...
BLARGH I CAN'T IDENTIFY THEM PLEASE TELL ME WHO THE KIDDIES ARE

In addition to the correct answers, I think the kids are:

Shikaku, Minato, Ino's mom, Chouza, Kakashi's mother (since we don't know what she looks like and we know he looks after his father), Sasuke's father, and Shino's father.

The only exception is Kakashi's mother - she has to be about the same age as the sannin :)

Nah, it wasn't your description, it was the one I read on Wikipedia. :O Plus, I read it sort of late at night, and I wasn't functioning correctly :XD: Plus, it was like a high school level description, and I'm only in Middle School ;P

But your English was fine, really good actually considering that it probably wasn't your original language :)
:? Right? I mean if I tried to write in Japanese or Hawaiian right now, my writing would be (a LOT ^^;) worse! (No kidding) =P

I love the look on their various faces,
it captures their personalities so perfectly.
I could totally see Jiraiya just telling the kids outrageous stories while the other two just ignored the world.
Wonderful!
