Episode Summary

EDIT
Kiba alerts Hinata, as he's being taken away, that there are only a few fighters left. He warns her that if she fights Gaara, she has to give up immediately or she could be killed. He also tells her to give up if paired against Neji, because Neji already has issues with her. Just then, the board shows the next fight...Hinata vs. Neji. Just how far will Hinata go to prove herself?moreless

  • Hyuga vs. Hyuga now it's tough

    When Hinata was matched against Neji, then there was some good battle. I knew that Hinata couldn't win against Neji. Neji is too strong. I guess that they hate eachother because of their branches. Hinata had let it all get to her even though she is the Hyuga heir of the main branch. Neji harbored so much resentment that he forced HInata to give up. Well, when the battle started, it was fierce, it was like Hinata had the upper hand but she missed. This battle proved Hinata to grow up a little. Neji had these cool Byakugans that can detect Tenketsu. He defeats her and it's Gaara vs. Rock Lee. The third eye can see everythingmoreless
  • Hyuga vs. Hyuga. Hinata lets it out.

  • It's a match between family members.

    Naruto uses the ointment that Hinata gave him. His wounds heal quickly and Naruto thinks the ointment did it, but Kakashi knows that it's the power of The Nine Tailed Fox in Naruto that heals him so quickly. Hinata goes to give some ointment to Kiba and Akamaru. Kiba tells her not to worry about him, she needs to worry about herself. Kiba tells Hinata that if she or Neji is matched against Gaara, they should forfeit the match. He tells her that Gaara would show no mercy and probably kill them. The next match is announced. It's Hinata versus Neji.....moreless
  • Hinata VS Neji!!

    9.0
    Hinata and Neji fight. Neji keeps on taking Hinata's self-confidence away from her. Hinata is so close to loosing but with Naruto cheering her on she regains her confidence. Naruto was getting tired of Neji talking badly to her. People notice that it is Byakugan vs. Byakugan. Neji and Hinata are cousins. Overall this episode looks good because they are both part of the Hyuga clan and both have the Byakugan. Naruto cheering Hinata was also a good part because it showed how much Naruto is an influence to Hinata's life and how well she performs during any event because she had always admired him.moreless
  • Neji vs Hinata

    9.4
    As Narutos battle ends Kiba warns Hinata to give up if she has to face Gaara or Neji. When the results for the next match come up Hinata has to face off against Neji. Neji is a cousin of Hinata. Neji is from the side branch while Hinata is form the main branch of the Hyuuga clan. As Hinata and Neji begin their battle Neji warns her to resign. Neji tells her the battle will end badly for her. Just when it seems that Hinata is about to give up Naruto yells at her and tells her not to give up. This gives Hinata confidence and she starts the fight with Neji. Hinata gets a hit on Neji. At the end of the episode Neji and Hinata hit each other with one of them doing excessive damage to the other. This episode was informative in the fact that we learn a lot about chakra and the Hyuuga clan.moreless

  • QUOTES (16)

    • Hinata: (Thinking and referring to Naruto) You were right.
      Neji: (Thinking) Annoying little pest. (Looks back at Hinata and sees that she is now determined to fight)
      Hinata: (Thinking) You were right, Naruto. Thank you.

    • Neji: Hinata, you are the pampered offspring of the Hyuga's main branch.
      Hinata: What?
      Neji: People can't change, no matter how hard they try. They can't run away from their true nature.

    • Kurenai: Very well then. I will take Hinata under my wing, but are you sure that's what you want. She is your firstborn and heir to your household. The life of a Genin can be dangerous and brief.
      Hiashi: Do what you will. She is of less worth than her sister five years her junior. The Hyuuga clan has no use for such an heir.

    • Neji: Before we fight, let me warn you about one thing, Hinata-sama. Give-up. You're not suited to become a ninja. You are too kind. You seek harmony and avoid trouble. And you just go along and follow someone else's idea. And... You have no self-confidence. You always feel inferior. That's why you thought it would be fine to remain a Genin. But you cannot register for the Chuunin Exam unless there are three people. You couldn't refuse the offers from Kiba and your teammate...And the truth is that you are taking this exam unwillingly. Am I wrong?

      ~Japanese version

    • Sakura: So it's a fight between relatives. It must be difficult for those two to fight.
      Lee: Yes, but...
      Sakura: What?
      Lee: But I believe that a lot of things happened between the Head Family and the Branch Family in the past...And they are not really on good terms with each other.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: This medicine works so well. Here. Do you want to use it, too, Sakura-chan?
      Kakashi: Your about the only guy whose wounds heal that quickly, Naruto. The power of the Nine-Tails still amazes me.
      Hinata: Um... This is an ointment. Please use it on Kiba-kun and Akamaru.
      Kiba: You should be worrying about yourself and not others.

      ~Japanese version

    • Gai: The Hyuga way is to attack their opponent's internal organs and the chakra network through which the chakra flows.

    • Rock Lee: Of course! It is the Hyuga style. That's why their poses are the same.
      Sakura: The Hyuga Style?
      Rock Lee: It is the most effective type of taijutsu found in our village.

    • Kakashi: (Comparing Sharingan and Byakugan) But for sheer power of insight, the Byakugan is the stronger of the two.

    • Neji: A failure, will always be a failure.

    • Neji: Hinata, listen to me. Withdraw now. You know you were never meant to be a ninja.

    • Kiba: If they put you in with that guy from the Sand Village...you've got to forfeit the match. Same with Neji. Be smart and just walk away...trust me. He'll be merciless. He'll destroy you.

    • Neji: I never thought, that you and I would have to fight each other, Hinata.
      Hinata: Nor I, brother.
      Sakura: What did she call him?!
      Naruto: Brother?! So those two are brother and sister?!
      Kakashi: They're both descendants of the Hyuga Clan. One of the village's strongest clans. Not exactly brother and sister.
      Sakura: Ok. But they're related somehow, right?
      Kakashi: Yes. In the way that a branch is related to it's trunk of a great tree. They're more like cousins.
      Naruto: The trunk of a tree?
      Lee: Yes. Hinata was born into the Hyuga's main household, the head of the clan. While Neji's family is just a side branch of the clan.

    • (After Rock Lee discusses the purpose of the chakra network in the human body)
      Naruto: How'd you get to be so smart, Lee?
      Sakura: (angered) Idiot! How did you ever get to be a Genin!? (She whacks Naruto on the head)
      Naruto: Ow!

    • Neji: It's all futile, Hinata. You are what you are. Whether you admit it, or not, you already know.
      Naruto: That does it! Who are you to tell her who she can or can't be?! Go on, Hinata! Show this guy that he's wrong!
      Hinata: (Thinking) Naruto.
      Sakura: Huh?
      Lee: Huh?
      Kakashi: Hmm.
      Naruto: Hinata!!

    • Hinata: I...
      (Flashback to Naruto)
      Naruto: I won't run away!
      Hinata: I don't want to...
      (Flashback to Naruto)
      Naruto: I'm not going to take back my words. That's my way of the ninja.
      Hinata: .. run away anymore! Byakugan!
