  • In this episode, Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura try to see Kakashi-sensei's true face with hilarious results.

    This is one of the best wackiest episodes of Naruto. Naruto sure does a good job in the begining of the episode of enticing Sakura and even Sasuke to the challenge.

    I don't know for sure but I think Kakashi was already on alert(or it could have been his ninja skills). Also, those guys who trying to get back on him really had the worst of luck. Kakashi manages to get away with each of their tricks.

    This episode, in my opinion, is so far the best because it also shows the funny side of Sasuke, a nice change from his usual cold attitude. My regards to the who thought of this episode.moreless
  • An amazing episode, a great laugh for Kakashi lovers through out the world.

    After watching all the naruto episodes that are out i kept on coming back to this one. The title is all you need to know to understand that this is going to be an amazing episode. I mean seriously all who watch this series should have seen this coming. Who doesnt want to know what Kakashi really looks like behind that mysterious mask, we already know about the reason for the forehead protector over his eye but the mask just keeps you wondering and loving Kakashi even more. Basically if you love Kakashi and good laugh this is the perfect episode to watch.moreless
  • Not to say I don't like fillers, this was half assed.

    Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke's mission? To find out what Kakashi looks underneath his mask. The premise of this seems like a lot of funny and hilarious situations could be made out, but instead there was a bunch of running and repetitive gags and just some very unfunny, if that is even a word, scenes. The second half executed a bit better with the introduction of those mysterious ninja, their ridiculous drugs to end Kakashi's life, like laughing to death, hiccuping to death, and crying to death, they could have came up with a more traditional drug, or poison, but they were still fairly amusing. It still wasn't enough to really save this episode from mediocrity, but their presence alone prevented this episode from becoming completely unbearable.moreless
  • One of the funniest episode ever! Naruto,Sasuke and Sakura trying to find out what in behind that mask...what Kakashi is hiding will our hero will see their Elite ninja sensei? Is it impossible 3 genins against a jonin?moreless

    So? It all start with Naruto's idea he was wonderintg what behind that mask. Sakura was not interest it and Sasuke..unntil Naruto with a crazy plan..he was saying what sensei has a blimp mouth..and their goes Sakura and Sasuke with the attention..they decided to find the sensei's face.

Their mission to help the the end of the day.Naruto siad "what on the mask Kakashi-sensei?" he was like "oh? well shouldn't ask!"

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • Soon after the part where the Moyo brothers exclaim, "Our clothes are gone!", Sasuke is shown with an upside-down forehead protector. The next time Sasuke is shown close-up, his forehead protector is back to normal.

    • If you look closely at the ninjas after Kakashi ties them up, you can see that the symbol on their headbands has disappeared.

    • The Moya brothers have headbands which depict a symbol for the Hidden Smoke Village. This symbol has never been seen outside of this episode.

    • If you look closely during the public bath scene, Sasuke does not have the cursed seal that Orochimaru put on his neck.

  • QUOTES (25)

    • Kakashi: What's the matter with you guys? No one's picked up their chopsticks.
      Sakura: Oh, it's nothing. Don't wait on us Kakashi-sensei, you go ahead and eat.
      Kakashi: Actually, I'm kind of on a diet right now.
      Naruto: (Thinking) So that's how he wants to play it, huh?! Well I don't care what it takes, that mask is coming off! (Speaking aloud) Oh no, my hand slipped. (Throws kettle of hot tea at Kakashi and Kakashi moves in a blur using the table to stop the kettle) Gah!
      Sakura: Are you out of your mind?!
      Kakashi: Sorry about that, my hand just slipped.
      Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura: What do you mean it slipped?!

    • Moya Brother: Our boss says he has something to talk to you about.
      Young Woman: Your boss?
      Boss: I love you. Marry me, I beg of you.
      Moya Brothers: Wow, boss, you're the man!
      Young Woman: Eww.
      Boss: Don't be shy now. Embrace your emotions my flower and fly to my bosom... Wha!! (Falls out of swing)
      Young Woman: No thanks.

    • Kakashi: What's with you guys today? You act like you're ready for anything.
      Naruto and Sakura: Oh, we're ready all right!
      Sasuke: Hmph.
      Kakashi: Alrighty then, good to hear.

    • Naruto: How did he figure out we were tailing him?
      Sakura: Maybe there were too many of us.
      Naruto: Oh please. If you know how to hide, it doesn't matter how many people there are. Don't tell me you've forgotten all your jutsu, Sakura.
      Sakura: (Hits Naruto in the head) You're the one who forgets!

    • Sakura: Hey, he's on the move.
      Sasuke: Let's go before we lose him.
      Naruto: Yeah, right.
      (They jump down into the alley to find it empty)
      Sakura: He's gone!
      Sasuke: Oh great, he got away.
      Naruto: Are you kidding? Where did he vanish off to?
      (Kakashi appears behind them)

      Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura: Ah, no, not really.
      Kakashi: Hmmm...

    • Sakura: You got any ideas?
      Naruto: Don't you worry... (Speaking in an eerie tone) We'll see it one way or another.
      Sakura: (Hits Naruto in the head) I'm asking how, you stupid little troll!
      Naruto: All right, smarty-pants, how do you propose we do it?
      Sakura: Well we...
      Sasuke: We'll just have to tail him around for the day. He'll have to take off the mask eventually.
      Sakura: Oh, Sasuke, I swear you are so smart.
      Naruto: Oh, whatever, Good plan, captain obvious.
      Sakura: (Angry) I'm sorry, what was that?!
      Naruto: Uh, never mind.

    • Naruto: That's it! Nothing is going to stop me from seeing that face!

    • Kakashi: The three of you treating me to lunch? You're not going to drop a big pile of snow on me are you? (Takes defensive position) Or something like that? (Braces for exploding ramen) No, I'm just being silly. (Gets hit with giant boxing glove)
      Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, Teuchi, and Ayama: He fell for it!

    • Kakashi: The three of you treating me to lunch? I wouldn't be surprised if it snowed on me... (Takes a defensive position) Or something.

      Naruto: (Thinking) Just one more little push. (Speaking aloud) Or maybe buck teeth?
      (Sasuke starts to shake even more)

      Sasuke: For what?
      Naruto: Come on, you know what I'm talking about... (Speaking in an eerie tone) Kakashi-sensei's real face.
      Sakura: Yahhh! (Sakura hits Naruto on the head) What's the matter with you?!
      Sasuke: Please, this is lame.

    • Kakashi: I'm not sure I really get what's going on around here...but, whatever!

    • (Naruto and Sakura are drinking tea; Sasuke comes back from tracking Kakashi)
      Sakura: Sasuke, how'd it go?
      Sasuke: I got tired of shadowing.
      (All sigh)

    • Kakashi: (Turns and sees the ad for the Make-Out Paradise movie) Wait! My favorite book is going to be a movie? I'd better order ticket in advance! (Runs off)

      Sasuke: Why are you such an idiot?

    • Sasuke: He's on to us!
      Sakura: Naruto, you idiot, you blew our cover!
      Naruto: Why the heck is it my fault?

    • Kakashi: Behind this mask...
      Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke: (Thinking) Behind that mask...
      Kakashi: another mask! Pretty cool, huh?
      Naruto: What the heck?! What kind of ending is that?!

    • Naruto: Maybe he has thick lips!
      (Sasuke starts to wobble)

      Kakashi: Ah, thank you for the meal. It was delicious.
      Naruto and Sasuke: That was quick!
      Kakashi: Eh? What's wrong?
      (Sakura is constraining Ino, while Naruto and Sasuke constrain Choji. Shikamaru stares in curiosity.)
      Sakura: No, it's nothing.
      Naruto: Huh?
      (The Ramen Workers, being the only ones to have seen Kakashi's face, stare at him dreamily)
      Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke: Now I'm even more curious!

      ~Japanese version

    • Ramen Man: Here you go. (serves Kakashi Ramen)
      Kakashi: This is unusual for you three to treat me to a meal. Maybe it's going to snow... now! Or... are you up to something?! (reaches for some chopsticks with caution) Or not.
      (Kakashi is hit by a giant boxing glove and hits a nearby fence)
