- SORT BY:
it is a reveal episode to me.
A girl is gathering herbs in the forest. She recognizes Naruto lying asleep in the forest as the kid that screamed at her for killing Zabuza in the forest (Haku) and reaches over to grab his neck. She reframes and gently wakes him. They talk for awhile, and she learns that Naruto is indeed a ninja. He trains because he must become stronger to become the best ninja in his village.
The woman has a flashback to herself as a kid. She tries to get food, but a dog fights her for it. She then kicks the dog to find two angry pups angry at her as well. Zabuza apparently took pity on her and befriended her. She tells him that when a person has something to protect, that is when he becomes truly strong. As she walks away, she tells him that she is a boy.
Naruto doesn't show up for breakfast the next morning, so Sasuke goes after him. Sakura and Kakashi also head out to the forest. Naruto throws a spear at them to show them how high he can climb but nearly falls off until Sasuke comes to his rescue. Kakashi is quite pleased by both of their progress
Tazuna asks Kakashi why they stuck around when he had lied to them about his project. Kakashi answers that to abandon one's duty is not courageous, and below courageous, there is nothing. Those are the First Hokage's words. Inari has a flashback to his dad and his words not to cry. He breaks down and asks why they would try so hard against Gato. It's pointless. Naruto tells him to shut up. He isn't like Inari. Inari cries even harder and demands to know how Naruto, who is so carefree, can possibly understand anything about him or this country. Naruto tells him that he's just playing the tragic character and that a sissy like him should just keep crying.
Later, Kakashi goes out to the water to talk to Inari and apologize for Naruto. He explains that like him, Naruto also grew up without a father. He has never known his parents or had a single friend, but he doesn't complain or cry. He also does his best to get people to acknowledge him. For that, he'd risk his life. That is why he understands what it is like to be strong. What he told Inari earlier was probably the same thing he told himself many times.
The next morning, the group leaves Naruto to rest and heads over to the bridge. When Naruto learns he overslept, he races to the bridge to meet the others. The others are greeted by several dead or critically injured workers, while two other henchman head over to Tazuna's house. The bridge becomes misty and Kakashi's belief that Zabuza is alive is confirmed. Zabuza attacks with water clone attacks, but Sasuke can see through them and takes the clones down.moreless
Naruto and Sasuke are competing to see who can reach the top of the tree by just using their chakra. Naruto keeps practicing to the point where exhausts himself. As Haku is gathering herbs in the woods, he comes across Naruto who has passed out from exhaustion. He wakes Naruto up and they start talking. Haku has a flashback to the first time he saw Zabuza. Haku leaves and he and Sasuke pass each other in the woods. Sasuke reaches Naruto and they continue their competition to make it to the top of the tree. Meanwhile Zabuza has almost recovered and plans his next move.moreless

This is exactly why I watch this show.This is a great episode and it is great to see Naruto and sasuke working together for a common cause not they don't but they are show that they actually do care about each other and don't always have to compete.Although naruto competes to impress Sakura,Sasuke does it to prove he is better and to restore his clan.So will they be able to defeat Zubuza and Haku or will the fail.What will happen only watching the next episode will tell.Perhaps someone will die or maybe no one will die and everyone will live happily ever after but i doubt it.Someone has to die but who will it bemoreless
Naruto and Sasuke have to finish their training, Zabuza returns and the battle continues as Sakura protects Tazuna, Kakashi fights Zabuza and Sasuke fights Haku...then Naruto comes to try and defeat someone.
This episode was a good one. Sasuke and Naruto mastered chakra control. This part was really a great one because we see Sasuke accomplishing chakra control and yet making Naruto seem like an idiot which he is. The battle does begin. I enjoyed the end of this episode because that is where the battle begins. Sakura is protecting Tazuna, Kakashi fighting Zabuza and Sasuke fighting Haku. At the end Naruto did have to fight some people kidnapping Inari's mother. That was a good fight and I am glad that it happened because Inari is much more happier and is persevering to try and save his village. It was a good episode.moreless
Zabuza returns for Round 2.
In this episode you will see Haku in the forest collecting herbs for her master and spot upon Naruto passed out. But don't worry, he doesn't harm Naruto in any way.
It was kind of shocking for me when Haku turned around before leaving the scene and said that he is no she. Kind of creepy because he sounded and looked like a female rather than a male.
Anyway, Zabuza will return at the end of this episode with Haku on his side. Naruto will be left behind in this one as he spotted some thugs taking on Inari. Watch the next episode to see the solution of Naruto and Inari.moreless

Kakashi's group vs Zabuza and Haku part 2.
This episode of Naruto serves more to the smooth enallage between Naruto's and Sasuke's training and Kakashi's group second confrotation with Zabuza rather than the story's continue. Naruto and Sasuke after training to death finally managed to succeed the tree climbing exercise (while Sakura had already succeeded from the first moment). The next day while Naruto was still asleep (due to the exhausting training he had the previous day) the rest of team Kakashi headed for the bridge along with the architect so that they may complete it. When they arrive at their destination they find all the workers dead or heavily injured and Zabuza along with Haku waiting for them. What will happen?moreless
Naruto didn't come back for dinner that night and Sakura comments that he could be lying dead somewhere, but doesn't sound like she really cares. Sasuke agrees, but doesn't sound like he cares either. Then Naruto is shown lying in a forest. He got so worn out from training he fell asleep. Then a young girl comes up and wakes Naruto. They spend some time talking, Naruto calls her 'sis.' Then the girl leaves and says, "By the way, I'm a boy." Naruto freaks out and yells, "But he's even prettier than Sakura!!!!!" It's not the last time he would see Haku. He would even see Haku die.moreless
This episode of naruto was about an evil villian named Zabuza, who tries get rid of a certain bridge builder, but fails on account of Kakashi.
Now this episode in my opinion was one of the coolest cliffhangers in the animated series naruto. It might not be the coolest but it sure is interesting. But then again what episode isn't, I mean we are talking about naruto here aren't we. I probably sound like a naruto fanatic right now, but let's face it, aren't we all ? I'm just kidding, I know I'm not. Anyway, back to the subject, Zabuza is suppose to be evenly matched with Kakashi but he dies in like the twelth or eleventh episode. I probably shouldn't have said that for the people who haven't seen this episode but oh well.moreless
Just mainly a bunch of talking...
Yeah, even though i gave this episode an 8, I'm pretty sure many people wont agree with that. This episode was informative, but at the same time, nothing really seemed to happen. Basically, Zabuza returned and Naruto and Sasuke finally could get to the top of the tree. Well, i really don't know what to say about this episode except that it was informative.
