  • Gamatatsu, coolest anime animal ever!

    The episode began with probably the best sequence of two animals talking, Gamichiki and his brother Gamatatsu. Their conversation was just the most amusing, adorable, and funniest I've seen so far in this anime. Gamatatsu's behaviour alone could make a great spin-off comedy. Unfortunately what dragged down Gamatatsu's awesome first appearance is Tsunade's phobia for blood and reminiscing. To see her get trounced on by Kabuto without even reacting to it and how she slapped his arm away like a helpless woman cornered in an alley, looked kind of pathetic. Plus that whole time all she thought about was the only two people she ever thinks of. Too much of that there.moreless
  • Jiraiya battles Orochimaru. Naruto and $hizune battle Kabuto. Naruto sends a Rasengan to Kabuto's stomach.

    Jiraiya battles Orochimaru but he can't control his chakra well by what Tsunade had done to him the day before with his drink. Naruto and $hizune battle Kabuto but he easily finishes fighting them. I thought that $hizune would have beaten Kabuto and Naruto wouldn't have to do a thing but it took both of them to try to defeat Kabuto. Kabuto was then going after Tsunade but Naruto then delivered a Rasengan to Kabuto's stomach. That was good considering that it was mastered in a few days or weeks when it took the fourth Hokage 3 years. Naruto finally using the Rasengan at the end of the episode was a good way to end this one.moreless
  • Naruto continues to suprise everyone!!!!!!!

    The episode begins with a flashback to the last one with Tsunade freaked out that Kabuto had spilled blood on her. He knocks her into her assistant and Naruto questions why Kabuto would be fighting Tsunade. Jaraiya points out Kabuto's headband which proves that Kabuto is working for Orochimaru. Naruto attacks Kabuto but is beaten back. Kabuto stands with Orochimaru and the real fight begins. Jaraiya tells Tsunade's assistant that she will fight Kabuto and he will face off against Orochimaru. The fact that Tsunade had slipped something into Jaraiya's drink the night before puts him at a disadvantage. Kabuto knocks out the assistant and Naruto then steps in to challenge him. Naruto forms the Rasengan and attacks Kabuto, but he easily dodges it and hits Naruto and knocks him down. Naruto takes several hits, but never gives up. He makes a shadow clone and Kabuto attacks again. This time Naruto catches Kabuto's weapon hand and holds him while his clone forms the Rasengan. Naruto hits Kabuto in the chest with the Rasengan and the episode ends.moreless
  • Naruto shows everyone that he is the next to become hokage. Way to master the rasengan in a week and win the bet.

    Tsunade is still paralyze by her fear of blood, naruto must protect her. After he stops Kabuto from beating up on Tsunade he gets his but kick by Kabuto. When he got tired of that he dicides to show everyone how he is going to win the beat with Tsunade. First he sommons a clone. Then stops Kabuto form moving by sticking his hand though Kabuto's kuni and grabs his hand. Then he gets his clone to gather his chakra in his right hand and puts all his force into attacking Kabuto in the chest. During all this Tsunade is surprised at how much of a genius naruto is. Although Kabuto tears Naruto's heart up, naruto manages to survive. Kabuto was smart though to start healing before the attack, but it still was not enough to stop himself form becoming to weak to fight. Naruto owned Kabuto.moreless

    Dun dun dun dun dun!!!!! The fight continues!!!!! Naruto and S h i z u n e and Jiraiya show up to help Tsunade beat Orochimaru and Kabuto, but she doesn't want there help, and continues to fight Four Eyes. Kabuto figures out her weakness and goes all Emo and cuts his wrists. His blood sprays Tsunade, and she freezes, due to her fear of blood. S h i z u n e takes her aside and joins Naruto to fight Kabuto, while Jiraiya fights Orochimaru. But since Tsunade gave him that drug, Jiraiya isn't up to his full power. But it's OK, because Orochimaru's arms are still sealed from his fight with Lord Hokage. Kabuto beats the snot out of S h i z u n e and Naruto, and goes for Tsunade. Naruto gets up and uses the Rasengan on him, with the help of a shadow clone.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the Japanese version they showed blood coming from Naruto's hand as he was catching Kabuto's kunai. In the English dub version the blood was removed, but when Kabuto was shown after that, trying to free his hand, the blood is there.

  • QUOTES (8)

    • Orochimaru: (Thinking) That's the Nine-Tails brat from the Chunin Exam. (Speaking aloud) I guess I should have killed him when I had the opportunity. For the sake of the Akatsuki and their cause, I let the boy slip by, but the only ones ever capable of breaking the five point seal were the Third Hokage and we, the Legendary Sannin.
      Kabuto: That may be, but Jiraiya has trained the boy.
      Orochimaru: You could be right. If he's learned to wield the power of the Nine-Tails, it's not impossible. (The smoke clears from Naruto's summoning attempt revealing Gamatasu) But that doesn't appear to be the case.

    • Orochimaru: That brat of yours could never beat Uchiha, born as he was into the shinobi art of Sharingan. Without Sharingan, poor Naruto hasn't a chance of surpassing him. A shinobi strength rests upon his ability to obtain and master all the jutsu of this world. The very reason we are called ninja is because of the ninjutsu arts that we wield.
      Jiraiya: Hmph, you're wrong. That's not what makes a shinobi. You never did get it. A real ninja is one who endures whatever gets thrown at him.
      Orochimaru: A difference of opinion, I suppose.
      Jiraiya: Let me explain something to you. There's only one thing that matters if you're a shinobi, and it isn't the number of jutsu that you posses. All you do need is the guts to never give up.

    • Kabuto: (Referring to Tsunade) What a tragedy... I only had the utmost respect for you as a fellow medical ninja.

    • Orochimaru: (Charging at Jiraiya on his snake) You are mine, old friend!

    • Gamatatsu: Hi, everybody! Hey friend, how are you?
      Gamakichi: Hey, Gamatatsu, why did you pop out? Where's the old man?
      Gamatatsu: Aah, Gamakichi. What's going on? This is the first time anyone has summoned me. I'm finally getting a chance to shine.
      Gamakichi: You dummy, get some munchies and find a place to hide, will ya?!

    • Orochimaru: (After Jiraiya summons Gamakichi) Well, Jiraiya, still playing the fool I see. You always were ridiculous, but this time you've outdone yourself.

    • Jiraiya: I can handle our friend, Orochimaru. There's just one thing, I need Tsunade to do something about my body before we get started here.
      Shizune: It may be a while before the full effects of that drug leave your body. I'm very sorry, but it can't be helped, Master Jiraiya.
      Jiraiya: What?! You've gotta be kidding! Oh well, what can you do right? I'll just have to face him as I am.

    • Naruto: Let's see you try and dodge me this time!
