  • Finally Akamaru's true powers are revealed

    Well, when Naruto was pushed to his limit by Kiba and Akamaru's surprise attack, Naruto fights back. He finds a move that might stall some time. Who could've known that Naruto had gotten so smart. Naruto transforms into Kiba and then says to Kiba that he insulted Naruto's dream. The transformation was great. Now Kiba can't tell which one's Akamaru. Kiba punched Naruto and then Naruto transforms into Akamaru. That was one smart move. All the arena was shocked. The last move, I give credit to Kiba because he won't give Naruto time. In the end, the fart was so bad and it killed Kiba's smell. The shadow clone was genius. In the end, the next battle was Hinata vs. Nejimoreless

    I remembered my parents yelling at me to turn the TV off when I was watching this episode. However, I didn't listen. Hahahah. At first I also thought Akamaru wasn't allowed like Naruto in battle. Next, then the rules were revealed that dogs are like weapons. When the battle began, it looked like as if Kiba was going to win. Even Kurenai was rooting for Kiba saying Naruto is not good enough. This battle brought a lot of old memories back when Naruto was being made fun of for transformation jutsu as the hokage. Naruto is then almost out of the battle. Watch the next episode.moreless

    Naruto and Kiba with Akamaru face off for their match. Kiba wastes no time and makes the first move knocking Naruto to the ground. He thinks he's won already, but Naruto gets up and tells him he hits like a girl. Then Kiba and Akamaru attack Naruto. Kiba throws a smoke screen and charges in while Akamaru waits outside.. After getting punched a few time, Naruto runs out of the smoke and right into Akamaru. Akamaru attacks and he and Naruto fall back into the smoke. The smoke clears and Naruto is laying on the ground. Akamaru runs to Kiba and then suddenly bites him on the arm.....moreless

    Naruto finally gets to show off his skill when he has to face off against Kiba. Everyone but Kakashi, Sakura, and Hinata think that Kiba is a sure win because Naruto was always weak in class. Kiba tells Naruto that he will beat him in one shot. He then changes into a beast and hit Naruto. Naruto get up and surprises everyone. Kiba than throws smoke bombs and hits Naruto with a few quick hits. When Naruto tries to escape Akamaru is waiting for him and attacks. When the smoke clears Naruto is knocked out and Akamaru goes to Kiba but bites him. It turns out to be Naruto and Akamaru is with the shadow clone Naruto. Everyone starts to see Narutos improvement. Kiba than feeds himself and Akamaru a food pill than increases their speed and strength. With this pill Akamaru knocks out the shadow clone and then turn into a clone of Kiba. They attack Naruto, hit him, and knock him down. Kiba say that if anyone will be Hokage it will be him not Naruto. This makes Naruto mad and he tells Kiba that he is the number one ninja.moreless
