As Gaara's fight with the Ultimate weapon ends, Naruto's journey to train with Jiraiya begins. Though it's been a long run the filler arc as well as the first part of the Naruto series is over. The first half of this episode is devoted to the finishing of Garra's battle against the ultimate weapon, showing that he has overpowered Shukaku with his own will. But it seems that once they have all returned to Konoha it's time for Naruto to leave for his training. Feeling she had been useless, Ino decides to become a medical nin, and angered that she was left out, Tenten fights Lee. Knowing that Naruto will become stronger Naruto's frieds vow to also become stronger. As Naruto leaves, he makes one more look to the Hokage Monument with a determined look on his face.
Goodbye Naruto, thanks for the memories and welcome Naruto Shippuuden, Dattebayo!
