  • Looks like I have to wait one more episode...

    I thought that immediately after Sasuke's flashback that the no bars fight between Sasuke vs. Naruto would finally show. Looks like it is next episode. Meanwhile we are treated with this episode that continues on the emo, pouting, and mostly crying. I feel bad for Naruto that he grew up with no parents--which raises the question how he was able to raise himself, or who--but I can't keep on feeling sorry for him when it is always being reminded to me. Naruto is presented as a strong character who doesn't look back, with all of these flashbacks of Naruto's past it is sort of negating the effects.moreless

    Kakashi has just returned from his mission and learns from Tsunade that she sent out Genin to retreive Sasuke. Kakashi decides that he must go after Naruto and Sasuke. He uses his summaning juutsu and a pack of dogs appear. He tells them to spread out and search for Naruto and Sasuke. Meanwhile Sasuke has started his Chidori and charges for Naruto. Naruto uses his Rasengan and the two meet head on causing an explosion that knocks both of them back. As Naruto is floating on the water, he has a flashback to when they were younger and how he wanted to be just like Sasuke.moreless

  • Finaly battle. For Now!

    The final battle between Naruto and Sasuke is almost to its end, they begin to fight seriously. Naruto remembers when they were younger, about Sasuke being his inspiration, and making him feel happy that they were the same. I like this episode cause it focuses on Naruto memories and feelings about Sasuke when they were younger, and how now they have to fight each other, so that Naruto can prevent him from going to Orochimaru and being completely taken over by darkness. But Sasuke needs to defeat him to get the Sharingan that Itachi posesses. This episode will continue until one of the is down, and i will write a review and summary for the following episode as well, when the battle finally comes to an end. that is the battle everyone is waiting for, that's when their real feelings come out.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Sasuke is making the Chidori on the waterfall and Naruto is looking up at him, Naruto's necklace is gone.

    • It is once again expressed that Naruto wasn't as alone as previously anticipated, as we can see from Naruto's flashback, that he was playing and talking with Shikamaru, Choji, and Kiba, in a Konaha playground, at a much younger age.

  • QUOTES (12)

    • Naruto (Using the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra) Sasuke! I'm not letting Orochimaru take you away, do you understand me?! I'll break every single bone in your body if that's what it takes to stop you! You're not going anywhere!

    • Naruto: (Thinking) Maybe I was the only one who thought...thought we were friends. (Begins to use the Nine-Tailed Fox's chakra)
      Sasuke: (Seeing the chakra) I told you, it's too late, Naruto! (Hits Naruto with his Chidori)
      Naruto: (Thinking) If that's the case, then how stupid am I Sasuke? I can't help it but... I don't know why... I don't know why, but... But I just can't bear the thought of seeing you taken away by someone like Orochimaru.

    • Sasuke: You know what they say, don't you, Naruto? When two shinobi are powerful enough, they are able to read each other's thoughts simply by an exchange of fists, without ever uttering a single word. Get it? You've always been naive, Naruto. Tell me, do you know my thoughts? Can you tell what's on my mind?

    • Naruto: I'll beat you into oblivion if that's what it takes to bring you back home!

    • Sasuke: I know I've said this already, but be honest with yourself, you've been waiting for this moment too. Kakashi and Sakura aren't here now. Nobody's going to stop us like the last time.
      Naruto: You lousy... (Sees Sasuke get a kunai out of his pack)
      Sasuke: This time we settle this once and for all. It will be the end of you!

    • Kakashi: (Thinking) I was too naive. Those two could end up killing each other.

    • Naruto: (Thinking) The truth is, you and I are friends.

    • Naruto: (Thinking) That's it, there's no mistaking it now. You're dead serious about this, aren't you?

    • Naruto: Sasuke! I will not let Orochimaru have you!

      ~Japanese version

    • Kakashi: (Thinking about how to make Sakura feel better) Well, considering that she saw them fight, it seems pointless to say "don't worry".

      ~Japanese version

    • Kakashi: I was a fool, they really were trying to kill each other.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Sasuke, I always wanted to talk to you. I knew you were all alone, and I was happy that somebody else was too. But I didn't talk to you. You were perfect at everything, and popular with everybody. So, I wanted to surpass you and made you my rival. I wanted to be just like you, you were my inspiration. That's that time...when you acknowledged me, I was happy. That was the first time you said that to me. Although I would never admit it, that's how you and I became friends.

      ~Japanese version
