  • Okay class, third lesson, retain it!

    Jiraiya takes Naruto onto the third step; retain the formed chakra into a compressed state in order to concentrate its damage into a single point. For Naruto it is the hardest step but unfortunately for him, him and Jiraiya are running low on time in their search for Tsunade. Although Jiraiya and Naruto spent a lot of time asking around, some of the random things they did in this episode were pretty fun to watch, like the gambling for information scene and Naruto making his frog wallet fat again. Though in another location, Orochimaru makes a deadly tradeoff to Tsunade that pierces the heart. Orochimaru is wickedly clever and cruel; the timing of his proposal is psychologically witty taking advantage of Tsunade's broken heart. A well done episode overall.
