  • Finally, they are calling Sakura out.

    I have long known that Sakura was a completely worthless Shinobi... it's about time that they finally addressed it. It was nice that it was her coming to terms with her own lack of abilities, though. I mean, she has excellent chakra control, but she doesn't use it for anything. Seeing as how Inner Sakura doesn't really surface anymore, she really has nothing, and I always wondered why she was on Squad 7.

    It's nice to finally hear someone in the show voice how worthless she is as a shinobi. Sure, she may be a key character to Naruto and Sasuke's characters, because they try to impress her and protect her and everything, but she really has no jutsu of her own. Sasuke has his Sharingan and Chidori, as well as the Cursed Mark... Naruto has Shadow Clones, Rasengan and the Nine-Tailed Fox... And then, you have Sakura... as far as I recall, the only thing I've seen her actually DO is break a genjutsu when the Sand/Sound Villages attacked the Leaf Village.

    As far as the episode is concerned, it's pretty much the same old Naruto episode... Naruto calls Jiraiya "Pervy Sage," Jiraiya protests, then takes Naruto's money to go scam on chicks. Nothing really new or impressive, story-wise.moreless
  • Decent

    Although this could be described as one of Naruto's downfalls because of all the damn filler, at least this episode was pretty decent. Its transition from post rescue Sasuke arc to finding Sasuke went pretty well for a filler, although all the nonsense that went on afterwards will make you go wtf. Jiraiya, like when he went off to find Tsunade, prefers to go partying with girls instead of actually focusing on his mission, and some of the scenes in this episode seemed like it was made from amateur flash users. What I liked though is that Sakura's character was developed a little bit. For about the entirety of the anime, Sakura has never been assertive of herself, but that changes quite a bit in this episode.moreless
  • Naruto, Jiraiya, and Sakura go on a mission to find the Village Hidden in the Sound.

    Naruto sneaks out of the hospital to get his daily fix of ramen. He gets caught and is dragged back to the hospital. They pass by Sakura and she reflects on how Naruto took it on himself to bring Sasuke back. She feels that she has to do something. She packs her backpack and goes to see Naruto in the hospital. Naruto figures out what Sakura is about to do and breaks out of the hospital again. He confronts Sakura as she is leaving town, but instead of stopping her he insists that he go along. Just then Jiraiya shows up to tell them...moreless

  • May the Fillers start with Sakura and Naruto leaveing the Leaf Village!

    This episode is not in the manga, meaning that this is a FILLER! YAY! This is the first of meny fillers in the season. Well any way, the episode starts with Nartuo at the ramen bar after sneaking out of the hospital and Shinzune comes and takes Naruto back. She ties him to the bed that most ninja can't even get out of. Sskura descides that she needs to send things into her own matter of saveing Sauske and descides to go find the Hidden Sound Village. Before she leaves though, Jariya talked to Tsunade into sending him, Naruto, and Sakura to find the Hidden Sound Village as a mission. Sakura is almost at the gate out of the village but Naruto shows up ready to go to. He was able to break out of his room again but then Jariya comes and tells them if they leave the village not on a mission, they would be rouge ninja. So Jariya tells them he has to take them to the Land of Rice Patties. Is Jariya really gonna help them, or just be up to his old tricks?moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Shizune was scolding Naruto, his head reached the height of her shoulder. How could he have done that if he was tied down to the bed?

  • QUOTES (9)

    • Jiraiya: They're fools, but they're determined fools. They'll go anyway. There's nothing that we can say that will stop them. The result will be that we will lose the services of two of our most valuable Genin. You can't let it happen! You can save them by giving them an official mission to investigate the Village Hidden in the Sound.
      Tsunade: Do I have any choice? Only on one condition, make sure both of them get back alive. Understood?
      Jiraiya: Don't worry. They will even if I don't.

    • Sakura: I know what you're thinking... That I'm being foolish, that I don't have a chance of rescuing Sasuke on my own. But I... I couldn't live with my self if I didn't try. All this time I've let others do everything and I've been nothing but a burden. I haven't done one thing well, not a single thing. Don't try and stop me!
      Naruto: Who says I want to? You do what you gotta do, but as long as you don't mind me tagging along.

    • Jiraiya: (Eating from Naruto's fruit basket) So, I hear you snuck out. You want to start training that bad, huh?
      Naruto: When did you get here? Hey! Pervy Sage, that's mine!
      Jiraiya: Atta boy. You're recovering nicely. We can start training anytime now.

    • Naruto: I'm still going to keep my promise no matter what.
      Sakura: No, Naruto, it's okay.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Sakura: Up 'til now, all I've done is rely on you. I see now that was a mistake.
      Naruto: I don't get it, Sakura. Are you mad at me or something?
      Sakura: No, far from it. In fact, just seeing you makes me more than I was before.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Sakura: It's time I started carrying my weight.

    • Sakura: (Thinking) Was that the best I could do? Cry and beg? I just gave up, put it all on Naruto, and Naruto didn't flinch. He risked everything to bring Sasuke back. He put his life on the line. Now it's time I finally did something for Sasuke. Time I put my life on the line.

    • Naruto: This Ichiraku ramen is all I need to get me back on my feet.

    • Naruto: So, what now, Pervy Sage?
      Jiraiya: Will you please stop calling me that?!
      Sakura: That's right, he's one of the legendary Sannin. Show some respect.
      Naruto: (Whispers) Trust me, when you get to know him, you'll see he's just a lazy, old pervert, that's all.
      Jiraiya: What did he just say?!

    • Jiraiya: If I had wanted to sneak a peek, it wouldn't be at an old lady.
      Tsunade: Excuse me?!
      Jiraiya: No, wait! That didn't come out right!

    • Tavern Lady: Well, they say a fool and his money are soon parted.
