    For a while it looked like the third episode could have scored a 9 for the third consecutive time. Sakura and Naruto strategically making every move count in order to grab the bells from Kakashi while also displaying their growth physically--Sakura's strength wow--and mentally. Seeing Naruto not screw up as much as before was a pretty nice sight. And then we also have the confrontation between Gaara and a member of Akatsuki. That orchestra music that plays whenever we first see an Akatsuki really sets the mood. The reason why it isn't a 9 though is because of the constant use of flashbacks. Man did they come in excess. It's nice to parallel the parallel changes in Sakura and Naruto compared to when they were younger, but it was just too much. It doesn't seem like it should be much of a bother, but it interrupted flow in the worst way.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In this episode, Naruto surrounds Kakashi with over a hundred clones. If you look at the scene after all the clones have appeared, except for Iruka not being there, it is exactly the same as when Naruto did the same thing in front of Mizuki in episode 1 of Naruto.

    • Special Report: Tsunade gives a report on the current information known about Akatsuki.

  • QUOTES (1)

    • Kakashi: (After finishing off Naruto's Shadow Clones) So, where's the real one?
      Naruto: I'm over here! (Runs toward Kakashi) Hidden Taijutsu Master Technique! A Thousand Years of Pain! (Kakashi jumps) Damn it! I missed!
      Kakashi: That was dangerous too. In a different way.
