  • Everyone is hard at work training for their matches.

    Naruto is still having trouble summoning a frog that isn't a tadpole, though Naruto isn't the only one training hard. Sakura and Ino decided to bring flowers to Sasuke, but he appears to have disappeared. Later he is found on top of a cliff, training with Kakashi who himself is training for the unexpected. Shikamaru and Neji are also honing their skills, but despite being knocked out the preliminaries with severe injuries, Rock Lee is training as well.



    The first episode that actually had me interested and didn't make me yawn in a while. The thing I love the most about shounens is training sequences. There is just something so hotblooded about watching people train, Rocky fans could probably relate. The past couple episodes was just Naruto failing constantly but here we have some serious training scenes from multiple ninja. Even if it was just for brief instances, it was somehow interesting.moreless

    Naruto continues to try the summoning jutsu and keeps summoning tadpoles, much to Jiraiya's dismay. Sakura decides that she needs to go see how Sasuke is doing. She decides to bring him a flower and goes to the flower shop. She goes in and Ino is running the store. Ino decides to go with Sakura because she doesn't want to let Sakura see Sasuke first. When they get to Sasuke's room he isn't there. The nurse frantically tries to find him and goes to tell the doctor. Then they go to see Rock Lee and he too is missing from his room.....moreless
  • eh kinda good i guess

    Sakura goes to the Hospital to see how Sasuke and Rock Lee are doing. I don't blame her. They both did get injured, Sasuke not so much but Rock Lee definitely had some bad injuries that almost ended his ninja career. Sasuke had left and Rock Lee had no chance of being a ninja anymore but he still tried to train but the pain was too much that he collapsed. I know that Rock Lee fans had been hurt to see Rock Lee in that condition. Naruto finally summons something a little bit better but still terribly unsuccessful. He summons a tadpole again but this time with hind-legs. It was a big accomplishment for him. Overall this episode went smoothly and it was also good to see how Rock Lee was doing in the hospital.moreless

    One day, Sakura decides to go visit the hospital to see Sasuke. She stops by the flower shop owned by the Yamanakas, only to find Ino running the cash register. Sakura buys two daffodils. One for Sasuke and one for Lee, who is also in the hospital. Ino decides to go with Sakura, and brings a rose for Sasuke. The nurse takes the two girls to Sasuke's room, though he is no where to be found. So then they go to Lee's room. He is gone too. The nurse look out the window and sees the bone head doing push ups. She tries to get him to go inside, but he refuses, and collapses. Elsewhere, the other finalists continue their training. Naruto finally manages to summon a tadpole with legs.moreless
