  • Finally Akamaru's true powers are revealed

    10
    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. Neji
  • Naruto's battle

    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.
  • Naruto and Kiba with Akamaru face off for their match.

    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.....
  • Naruto Battle Starts.

    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.

  • Kiba and Akamaru battle Naruto meanwhile people think of Naruto as weak.

    9.1
    The battle of Kiba and Akamaru against Naruto begins. Kiba takes some pills along with Akamaru to double their chakra. Naruto is just fighting them both. This episode showed how close Akamaru and Kiba are. It is like if they were best friends, well they are. It is interesting the transformation that Akamaru takes when he takes the pills. Akamaru and Kiba look very powerful indeed, The episode overall, is great. We see the relationship between Akamaru and Kiba and a move that they make together to defeat a ninja. A quite interesting move. People notice in this episode that Naruto can be smart sometimes and can handle most of his chakra.
  • Naruto VS Kiba & Akamaru

    8.9
    Kiba was underestimating Naruto because in the Ninja Academy, Naruto can't even do a Transformation Jutsu. The battle starts off with Kiba having a huge avantage over Naruto. Kiba charges at Naruto and it was over. That was what everyone thinks accept for Naruto, Kakashi, Sakura, and Hinata. He got up. Kiba threw some smoke bombs at Naruto. In the smoke Kiba and Akamaru attacks him. H egot up once again. Akamaru suddenly bites Kiba. Akamaru was Naruto. He transform into him. Kiba gave Akamaru a food pill and he use the Beast Clone Jutsu. They charges at full speed and attacks Naruto. Naruto once again got up. Who will win? Find out on the next episode.
  • The orange idiot vs. the dog gangster

    Shikamaru and Kin's match is over, and now it's Naruto's turn. Naruto Uzumaki vs. Kiba Inuzuka. Kiba has the upper hand, considering he is alowed to bring his dog, Akamaru, into battle. Luckily, Kiba is way over confident, and Naruto takes advantage of it. Kiba eats a pill that doubles his chakra. (Steroids?) Then Akamaru morphs into Kiba and now there's two of them. They smash Naruto, and it looks as if it's all over for him. As we all know, Naruto will do anything to become Hokage. Naruto gets up and continues fighting. Kiba continues to taunt him, and the episode ends with the match unfinished.
  • Naruto vs. Kiba

    9.0
    The 5th match is over and the wall screen has decided that for the 6th round in the preliminary match, Naruto will go up against Kiba. Though Kiba thinks that it'll be an easy fight against a goof ball like Naruto, Naruto intends to prove everyone that they shouldn't underestimate him.

    Kiba is able to effectively use a number of techniques, all of which pretty much involve acting like a wild beast, to really push Naruto to the corner. However, Naruto is not one to give up, even though it seems clear that Kiba will be the winner. This battle is one of my favorites.
  • Naruto has just begun his match...A review from an Artist.

    10
    Naruto has just started to battle Kiba and Arumaru He was sitting in the stands and wanting to do it now its time. Kiba and Arumaru have just started along with Naruto. Kiba and Arumaru have taken the lead but Naruto starts to counter attack like Kakashi taught him. Kiba and Arumaru start to pull a fast one by making themselves look the same so Naruto doesn't know which one to strike mthen he sneakily makes himself look like them and make them think their senses are lying so they attack the other ones giving him time to try to attempt his secert jutus. This is my masterpeice.
  • Not necessarily a filler episode, but it's frikkin filled with unnecessary filler.

    7.8
    After a bit of trash talking to Naruto, Kiba makes a fierce move that seems to have easily knocked him out. Though it seems like the always underestimated Naruto is, well...underestimated by Kiba. Kiba then uses a combo attack with Akamaru, but then Naruto creates a counterattack using his shadow replication technique. Kiba gets mad, and feeds Akamaru with some food pills that allows him to transform into Kiba. The two fiercely assault Naruto, and get him with their twin fang destroyer attack. Naruto struggles to get up, but he's still able to compete.

    Another episode overloaded with flashbacks. The first half of the episode was unnecessary, since it's filled with flashbacks we've already seen, so it felt like a complete waste. I mean, how stupid is it that after Kiba kicked Naruto, after 9 minutes, he finally frikkin stands up? The only worthwhile flashback moment in this episode was Hinata's, because it portrayed the reason why she has a crush on Naruto, plus it was emotional.
  • Naruto v.s. Kiba and Akamaru. The battle starts out bad for Naruto, but he makes up for it. Kiba and Akamaru have their own tricks.

    10
    When Naruto fights his battle, Sakura realizes she was wrong about Naruto. Hinata has a painful memory of Naruto's past when Naruto almost loses. It's somewhat of a tearjerker. Naruto makes it through by simply standing. In Hinata's flashbacks, she sees how Naruto strives to become Hokage, and then starts rooting for him to win the current battle. Hinata remembers how nobody gave Naruto the attention he deserved, and still does. This show is revealing by showing more about Naruto's past, and how he's changed since then to become Hokage. I give this episode a 10 out of 10. Definitely.
  • not bad

    8.5
    Good episode it is naruto's turn to fight and it's against Kiba. Not a bad battle didn't know Kiba's dog could turn into Kiba that was a surprise. Anyway, Naruto fights against Kiba and his dog and says how he will become hokage so the village will stop disrespecting him. Naruto was very smart in this episode and Kiba's attacks were kinda cool.




    Cool episode but the only thing that bored me was that naruto didn't do that much well that's what i think anyway.




  • Kiba's dog can turn into Kiba?!? An Anime King review.

    10
    In this episode you can tell that Naruro has really grown. He can outwit and defeat Kiba and Akamaru! Kiba talked about Naruto when he was young and not yet a ninja. Naruto told the class he was gonna be the greatest Hokage, that way people will stop treating him like dirt. Kiba laighed in his face and for that Naruto made him the underdog, him and his dog. This has been an Anime King review.
