This has got to be my favourite episode in the series so far (I'm currently halfway through the 2nd season). It's just plain eye candy. For guys, the battle sequence is a sure crowd pleaser. For girls? Come on, it's Kakashi, only about the coolest, sexiest male anime character ever!
In this episode, we get to see just what the sharingan is capable of, and yet the mystery is still not fully revealed until "The Sharingan Shatters" a few episodes later. How was he foreseeing Zabuza's moves? I was so curious that I had to look it up online!
Anyway, to make a long story short, no one should give up on this series before seeing this episode. Trust me, it changes everything!
But will we ever see the man behind the mask . . .
