  • Just frikkin fight already...

    5.5
    All the genins that survived the preliminaries are standing firmly as the crowd looks forward to exciting matches. The bracket was changed though as Dosu was killed trying to take out Gaara. Naruto nervously looks around the stadium as people are already writing a victory of Neji. The two commence battle as Naruto tries using his shadow replication technique, but nothing gets past Neji's byakugan.



    So the first eight minutes are pointless flashbacks that we didn't need to be reminded of, again, and the fight between Neji and Naruto takes almost two minutes to start while the camera is mostly concentrating on the referees needle he's chewing on, Neji's eyes, or Naruto's teardrop. It reminded me of those horrible Dragonball Z moments where the episode starts, the fight doesn't start yet, and the episode ends, with no fight. Well the fight started here, but still, it took forever to do so.moreless
  • The first match begins.

    Naruto arrives at the arena a little late. Sasuke still has not made it. The third Hokage speaks to the crowd and announces there are eight competitors. Do they know about Dosu? The first match of the finals is Naruto versus Neji. Most of the people in the crowd don't Naruto much of a chance of winning. Naruto is more confident after his talk with Hinata and Neji notices that. The fight begins and Naruto charges at Neji. Neji blocks everything Naruto throws at him and knocks Naruto back. Naruto decides it's time to use his Shadow Clone jutsu and attacks with four clones....moreless

  • Finally some action.

    9.2
    Everyone in this episode was wondering where Sasuke was. Even I was wondering but I know that he will be there. Naruto's and Neji's battle begin because they are the first battle after it was changed after Dosu died. Naruto tries to use taijutsu but it doesn't work so he then uses shadow clones which in my opinion is not a well choice because Neji has the Byakugan although Naruto did put equal Chakra into each shadow clone to make it hard for Naji to get Naruto. Overall, this episode went well. Naruto did use shadow clone jutsu and he did make many shadow clones. I am not surprised.moreless
