So Who Is Kashin Koji?
Kashin's background had folks recognizing the similar moves that he wielded that Naruto's mentor, Jiraiya, had once used, and as the latest chapter of the manga reveals, Koji is in fact a clone of the legendary ninja of Konoha. Using tricks such as summoning giant toads and wielding the rasengan, Kashin's cover has been blown though now he has to worry about surviving his brawl against the leader of the Kara Organization, Jigen, who has just reached a new level of power!prevnext

The Orochimaru Connection
Been questioning this one particular character ever since his first appearance in the manga but now it's officially confirmed. Kashin Koji (the one with mask) is a clone of Jiraiya, just like Mitsuki to Orochimaru. pic.twitter.com/7gbtOlXoda— 🏹 (@sadvirgoan) June 18, 2020
A Clone But Different
Kashin Koji might be a clone but he is not a carbon copy of Jiraiya they're personalities are way different from each other. Since when have you ever seen Jiraiya act like this pic.twitter.com/T0LGY1vAWY— Borugod (Otsutsuki tech support) (@Borugod) June 18, 2020
I wanna give my two cents towards the new Boruto chapter. I’m fine with Kashin Koji being a clone. If he was actually Jiraiya that would’ve made me drop this series. Plus, he’s likely gonna die soon anyways, so it doesn’t matter in the long run. Overall, the chapter was enjoyable pic.twitter.com/KEkG9hxlEL— Michael Hart 🍀 (@DarkFoxTeam_) June 18, 2020
A Loss For Words
Boruto Chapter 47 is amazing. I got to say Isshiki true form state is pretty cool looking but Kashin Koji reveal as a clone of Jiraiya has me loss for words, shame Naruto isn’t able to see it. pic.twitter.com/STcYVc5hYq— 𝖗Յ𝖙𝖗𝖔 :the fierce battle project (@Retro_IIXV) June 18, 2020
