  • Finally! I was getting tired of that gay theme song. And my mom still thinks she knows more about anime than I do!

    • Lee: I've never been one for skulking around in the shadows. Tenten: Will you shut your trap? You're going to blow our cover.

    • Tenten: Same as ever, huh? Lee: Patience has never been his strong suit, no question.

    • Naruto: Hey, are those friends of yours who got knocked out going to be alright? Sumaru: Don't worry about it, okay. Naruto: Huh? Sumaru: You're outsiders, it's none of your concern. Now quit acting like we're friends. Naruto: That guy's a real piece of work.

    • Akahoshi: What? Someone made off with the star? Sumaru: Yes. There were people training there when it happened, but the enemy knocked them out with some sort of jutsu. Akahoshi: That's pathetic! Naruto: You wouldn't say that if you'd seen the chakra this guy was throwin' around! Lee: Was he truly that impressive a foe then? Naruto: Yeah, he was forming wings and beasts out of chakra. I've never seen anything like it. Akahoshi: Is this true, Sumaru? Sumaru: Yes. Ninja Art: Kujaku, no doubt about it.

    • Shizune: Our records show that particular form of training has been suspended for ten years now. Tsunade: After the Third Hoshikage came to power, he chose to put an end to it. But then, a year ago, he passed away, sadly, and the village lifted the ban. Shizune: It's curious, isn't it? I wonder what moved him to forbid it. Tsunade: Hard to say. Only the Village Hidden in the Stars is privy to that. Although, there have been a few rumors on the wind. Shizune: What do you mean? Tsunade: Well, details are spotty but most of the ninja who underwent the training, died from it.
