  • Hilarious episode.

    8.5
    This episode was just flat out funny with Jiraiya and Naruto delivering the same comedy goodness, but Sasuke had some great moments himself too, such as when he describes Naruto as a blond haired kid with a stupid face. And then thinking he found his room, it was another kid with blond hair with an old man with white hair. Other than that, Naruto and Jiraiya are starting to form good chemistry with each other; relationships and small talk are probably the most underappreciated things in anime. What also delivered is Jiraiya's flashback of when Sarutobi was still his teacher. Flashbacks when they aren't excessive are a very nice treat to watch.moreless
  • Jiraiya takes Naruto with him to train him as they look for Tsunade.

    Jiraiya takes Naruto with him to an outpost town to look for Tsunade. On the way there Naruto learns that Jiraiya taught the Fourth Hokage and Jiraiya learned from the Third Hokage. It seems that Jiraiya, Tsunade, and Orochimaru were all students of the Third Hokage. Jiraiya fell for the same traps that Naruto did when he took the bell test. As they head into town, Sasuke is looking for Kakashi. He goes to Kakashi's room and find Gai, Asuma, and Kurenai standing around Kakshi who is passed out in bed. Sasuke asks what's going on and Gai tries to come up with something when a ninja bursts in adn says something about Itachi. Rage fills Sasuke's eyes and he takes off....moreless
  • Naruto and Jiraiya are on their way to find Tsunade even though Jiraiya doesn't focus much on getting Tsunade but more on stalking women. Itachi finds Naruto while Sasuke tries to find Naruto.moreless

    Jiraiya and Naruto try to find Tsunade but Jiraiya seems to more interested in being the pervert that he is, finding women and leaving Naruto alone to train by himself. I wasn't surprised that Jiraiya would do such a thing. Sasuke finds out that Itachi is in town and is trying to find Naruto to take the nine-tailed fox demon inside Naruto. Sasuke tries to find Naruto but Itachi finds Naruto first ending the episode. The ending of the episode was good. It leaves people wondering what will happen next and it showed also how desperate Sasuke was to find Naruto and somehow beat him.moreless
  • Great episode

    9.5
    This episode of Naruto is the third episode of the Return of Itachi story arc. What happens is Guy, Asuma, and Kurenai take an unconscious Kakashi home to rest, where they decide Sasuke should not know of Itachi's return. Despite their wishes, Sasuke finds out, and also learns that Itachi is after Naruto. Determined to kill Itachi for murdering the Uchiha clan, Sasuke rushes out to find Naruto, though discovers that Naruto has already left the village with Jiraiya. In another town, Naruto sits in a hotel room while Jiraiya tries to pick up women. Soon after his arrival in the room, someone knocks on the door, and when answering it Naruto finds Itachi to be there. Overall great episode, but not the best one of the story arc.moreless
  • Jiraiya's such a perv.....

    Good episode. ^_^ Their needs to be more. Anyway, Itachi knocked Kakashi out solid and Kurenai, Asuma, and Guy have to drag him home. They all decide that Sasuke should never find out about Itachi's return. Sasuke comes into Kakashi's room, while Guy, Asuma, and Kurenai are still there. Sasuke wants to know why Kakashi is unconcious. Some random Jonin bursts into the room asking if the rumors about Itachi Uchiha returning to Konoha are true. Well, the secret's out now. Sasuke also learns that Itachi and Kisame are after Naruto. Sasuke wants nothing more than to kill Itachi for murdering their parents. He runs off to find Naruto, only to discover that he left with Jiraiya earlier. In another town, Naruto is tagging along with the Pervy Sage who is trying to pick up women. Naruto is sitting in the hotel room he shares with Jiraiya, when someone knocks on the door. He opens it, only to find none other than the infamous Itachi Uchiha.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (5)

  • QUOTES (15)

    • Naruto: (Going to answer a knock at the door) What now? Are you telling me she dumped you already?

    • Jiraiya: Here's the room key. I want you to go right up to the room, train for a little, work on your chakra, and then go to bed. Okay? Ha ha!
      Naruto: What?! So I suppose you're going to tell me it's time for the grownups to play now. Is that the vibe here, you big perv?

    • Kisame: I'm pretty sure you could go toe to toe with him, but I'm not sure I could. He's on a whole 'nother level.
      Itachi: Yeah, if we faced each other, both of us would get killed. A rather unappealing outcome.

    • Sasuke: Naruto just keeps getting stronger and stronger. Compared to him, I...

    • Sasuke: Naruto fought tooth and nail to save you, Sakura. He displayed a kind of strength he'd never shown before.
      Sakura: Naruto...rescued me?

    • Naruto: Gah, no! I just stepped in dog doo!

    • Naruto: Come on, come on, come on! Why did you choose me?
      Jiraiya: Well the truth is, kid, a long time ago the Fourth Hokage used to be a disciple of mine.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Jiraiya: And you bear such a striking resemblance to the Fourth that it's almost laughable. That's the only reason.

    • Naruto: Hey, hey! Wait a second, Pervy Sage!
      Jiraiya: Look, kid, I told you already, it's Jiraiya. Come on.

    • Jiraiya: The Toad Sage is only my cover. Allow me to reveal my true identity. From the north to the south, from the east to the west, not even the spirits can defeat this Sannin. The White Maned Toad Charmer, a red hot ninja who strikes fear in the hearts of men, Master Jiraiya. Yes, I'm speaking of none other but myself. (Laughs)
      Naruto: (Sarcastically) Uh huh.

    • (after Jiraiya fails the bell test)
      Young Tsunade: Well, Jiraiya. It seems I've won our little wager! (acting smugged) Enjoy your time on the stump.
      Young Jiraiya: (groans annoyingly) Oh, shut up! You annoying little troll!
      Young Tsunade: (grabs him by his shirt; enraged) What'd you say!? You smarmy little dork!!
      (starts beating at him)
      Sarutobi: Okay, that's enough, Tsunade!

    • Jiraiya: I wish you would stop calling me "Pervy Sage". I'm really amazing.
      Naruto: What? An amazing perv?

    • Sarutobi: I don't even want to know where you are with your transparency jutsu.
      Young Jiraiya: I haven't been caught peeping yet! The transparency jutsu is flawless! I swear!
      Sarutobi: All right then. If you're so sure of yourself... (Glances elsewhere) Then I should probably tag along next time...
      Young Jiraiya: (Pauses a moment) Wow, Sarutobi-sensei... You're a perv!

    • Jiraiya: Stop calling me Peverted Hermit! You have no idea what a great person I am.
      Naruto: What? A great Peverted Hermit?

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: Why's Kakashi asleep? And why are all of the jounins gathered here? What happened?
      Gai: Nothing much happened.
      (Another ninja enters the room.)
      Ninja: Is it true that the Itachi came back? And that he's after Naruto?
      (Sasuke's eyes widen in rage)
      Kurenai: Idiot!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sasuke: It wasn't me. Naruto was the one that saved you from the Sand.
      Sakura: Oh Sasuke, you're being modest...
      Sasuke: He did. He fought with all of his heart and strength to save you.

      ~Japanese version

  • NOTES (7)

    • YTV Airdate: June 1, 2007

    • Original Airdate: May 12, 2004

    • Original Episode Title: OH NO! Jiraiya's Joke and Naruto's Misfortune
      Romaji Episode Title: Oo, Noo~! Jiraiya no Jonan, Naruto no Sainan
      Kanji Episode Title: おお、のォ~っ!自来也の女難、ナルトの災難

    • In this episode, the infamous "crow" makes its debut during the awkward silence after Jiraiya informs Naruto about how he is a Legendary Sannin. This crow will make several more appearances in future episodes.

    • In this episode, we learn from Jiraiya's stories that Orochimaru, Jiraiya, and Tsunade were trained by the Third Hokage, and that Jiraiya trained the Fourth Hokage. We also learn, by looking at the quick pan over shot of Kakashi's room and looking at the quick glimpse at the pictures, that Kakashi was trained by the Fourth Hokage. This also explaines how the "training with the bells" got passed down to Kakashi.

    • In the manga, Sakura says afterward that Sasuke must've been the one that saved her because only the Chidori would be strong enough to beat Gaara. But in the anime she doesn't say anything and appears to believe him.

    • Sakura learns from Sasuke that it was Naruto who saved her from Gaara.

  • ALLUSIONS (1)

    • Young Tsunade's temper over Young Jiraiya mirrors that of another Viz Media dubbed anime series, Zatch Bell!, where Tia always throws a fit if Zatch insults her by accident, or on purpose.
