Ino Yamanaka / Konohamaru
Shino Aburame (episodes 34+)
Dosu Kinata / Hiashi Hyuuga
Watch Naruto's position while Hinata is being put on a stretcher. When the medics are just about to put her on the stretcher, Naruto is at her feet to her left. When the medics take her away, he is at her head to her right.
While all of the Jounin are holding Neji back, when you look up while Gai's talking ,you can see Kakashi's glove is gone while he's holding Neji's arm.
When Kakashi explains the chakra points, or "tenketsu", to Naruto in the Japanese version, he says that there are 361, but in the dub, he says there are 316.
Neji's postion keeps changing when he stands still. When we see Neji and Hinata from where Naruto, and the others are, on that balconey, we see Neji at least a half a foot to a foot from the edge of the tile. But when we switch to seeing it from behind Hinata, we see Neji on the edge. This can be determined because his shadow falls right below him, and he and his shadow appear right over the line.
Kakashi: (Describing Neji's style of attack) On the chakra network, there are 316 energy centers or chakra points; and each are only about the size of the head of a pin. Hitting one directly can affect chakra flow either halting it or increasing it, depending on how the attacker strikes the chakra points. Theoretically, doing so allows a ninja to gain complete control over an opponent's chakra flow. But these chakra points, they're undetectable even to my Sharingan eye.
Sakura: (Shocked) Ah...
Kakashi: And even beyond his ability to see the chakra points; he is able to target them accurately, even during intense battle.
Lee: (Thinking) How was that, Gai-sensei? (Holds up thumb)
Gai: (Thinking) Good one, Lee! Nice going. (Holds up thumb)
Kurenai: Oh, no! She's going into cardiac arrest! Was he really trying to kill her?
Neji: I wouldn't waste your time glaring at me, when you really should be taking care of her.
Neji: Hey you, loser! I have two pieces of advice for you. First of all, if you intend to call yourself a shinobi, stop that stupid cheering of yours. It's disgraceful! And second, once a failure always a failure. You can't change that!
Gai: Get a hold of yourself! You promised me you wouldn't let this whole Head Family thing get you riled up!
Hinata: You see, I can tell that you're the one...you're suffering much more than I.
Neji: I what?
Hinata: You're the one who's all torn up...about the fate of the main and side branches of the Hyuga clan.
Neji: What do you think you're doing? If you continue to fight, you're going to die.
Gai: It's too bad, but after that blow to the heart...Hinata...is done.
Gai: It looks like Neji's going to win this match. This girl just doesn't have what it takes to bring him down.
Kakashi: I never imagined there would be someone this powerful here. I'm afraid that even as strong as Sasuke is, he's no match for Neji.
Naruto: I had no idea...that Hinata's as tough as she is.
Lee: She's a lot like you.
Sakura: You know, come to think of it...she is always watching you.
Neji: Look, Hinata...I'm completely out of you league and that won't change. This is what separates the elite from the failures.
Kakashi: (Thinking) What's with this kid?
Kurenai: (Thinking) It can't be!
Hokage: So...now I see why he's called the most gifted one to emerge from the Hyuga clan.
Naruto: Hinata, I give you my word...I vow to win!
Hinata: I...never...go back...on my word!
Naruto: (In flashback) I'm not going to run away!
Hinata: Because that too is my nindo. My ninja way!
Neji: There's no point in acting tough. You're barely able to stand up. I can tell with these eyes that you have carries the destiny known as the Hyuuga Family. You cursed your powerlessness, and blamed yourself. But people cannot change. This is destiny. There's no need to suffer. Let yourself go.
Hinata: You're wrong, cousin Neji. Because I can see...that you are suffering more than me.
Hinata: You are the one who is confused and suffering inside the fate of the head and branch families.
The featured battle is Neji vs. Hinata.
