  • Awkward?

    Although not much action going on, this episode of Naruto has the political game going on. All the flash and glamour of a shounen can only go so far without the behind the scenes drama. At first I thought Tsunade's decision to send Naruto out despite being pursued was shallow built on childish thinking, but when she was arguing with the elders, she gave out a very compelling and convincing argument. It's not like she entirely won too; this mysterious dude Danjo is releasing a strange aura about him that really plays the political game well; you win and lose some at the same time. Kind of exciting to see how this will all go down actually.moreless

    • (During the Special Report)
      (Choji eats all the barbecue)
      Naruto: Come on, Choji! Don't hog it all!
      Choji: You're naive, Naruto. Eating barbecue is a battle!
      Naruto: What did you say?!
      Shikamaru: Calm down, Naruto!

    • Tsunade: Even if we force him to stay in the village, Akatsuki will definitely come after Naruto...the Jinchuriki. Take the recent events in the Sand. They still targeted the Jinchuriki, Gaara, despite the fact that he was supposedly staying in the safest place in their village. There is a strong chance that the same thing will happen to Naruto. And if that happens, the entire Hidden Leaf Village will be in grave danger. As long as Naruto is on the move, they won't be able to pinpoint his location right away.

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: There will be one other new recruit in Team Kakashi, from ANBU's Root division.
      Yamato: From... Root?
      Tsunade: Also...
      Yamato: What is it?
      Tsunade: (Speaks in a lower tone) Keep a close eye on him!
      Yamato: Meaning what?
      Tsunade: This new member was recommended by Danzo. Danzo used to lead a hard-line party who stood in opposition to the Third's policies. He formed his own section of the ANBU called Root, and took the role of its chief. I'm sure you have at least heard his name before. (Yamato nods) Root has been disbanded, and he has already fallen into disgrace. But I've never been able to tell what he's planning, and this time is no different.

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: (Referring to Akatsuki) They won't get Naruto.
      Koharu: And if your belief is wrong? What will you do then?
      Tsunade: If the Hidden Leaf Village and the Fire Country fall into danger because of me, I'll put my life on the line to protect it as the Fifth Hokage!
