    Another episode of the battle being terribly drawn out, though this time the off scenes aren't just random conversations. The collaboration with the sound and sand villages have taken positions and are just waiting for their signal. It seemed that Gaara was going to foil that plan for his own desires because he was facing a powerful opponent in Sasuke. The revealing of the history of the Chidori compensates somewhat for the dragged out battle and it makes it even more interesting that it is Kakashi's only original move. The plan seems to be in full motion now that Kabuto and Kazekage have made their move in their respective regions, it actually makes the future episodes something to look forward to.moreless
  • Sasuke technique is revealed!

    Gaara has formed the sand into an impenetrable ball around himself. Sasuke tries to attack several times and each time the sand forms spikes where he attacks and drives SAsuke back. Naruto is worried that Sasuke isn't strong enough to defeat Gaara, but Kakashi tells him to be quiet and watch. Sasuke runs up the wall of the arena and performs some hand signs. He runs down the wall gathering momentum and he performs Kakashi's Chidori as he builds up speed. He hit's Gaara's sand shield and breaks through into it and wounds Gaara to everyone's amazement. But something is terribly wrong.....moreless
  • CHIDORI!

    9.5
    Because Garra had been in the dome for quite some time and the dome is dangerous, Sasuke decides to use the Chidori. I was glad to see the move that Kakashi had taught Sasuke. Sasuke successfully injured Garra while inside the dome. Garra, screaming in pain and was begining to transform into the demon sealed inside him. Sasuke had seen just a part of the demon. Kabuto uses genjutsu to make the people in the audience to sleep signaling the invasion of Konoha to begin. Overall this episode went well, actually it was a great episode. I got to see Sasuke use the Chidori which is one of my favorite parts.moreless

  • 4th Match! Gaara VS Sasuke

    Okay this episode starts right when Naruto and Shikamaru return from the stairs and are confronting Kakashi, telling him to stop the mtahc because... Gaara could actually kill Sasuke! Gaara is a killing beast. But Kakashi tells them not to worry because he taught Sasuke some special training. Back on the battlefield, Sasuke and Gaara are still battling. Sasuke throws some kunei at the sand shield, and keeps attacking it phsyically from the outside. Menwhile outisde the ANBU are planning something. Then in the battlefield, Sasuke is about to use the ultimate move that Kakashi taught him. Kakashi did have a reason for being late. Konkurou and Temari are worrying that Gaara has forgotten the plan, Konkurou even thinks they should leave before things gets messy. They don't relieze that Shino is eaves dropping on their conversation about the "plan." Outside Sound nin are making a cirlce in the ground for some reason, probably for the "plan." Then Sasuke's ultimate move is unveiled, the Chidori! Kakashi finally explains why and how he trained Sasuke. Sasuke is like him and he needed Sasuke to get to a certain level of speed first. Gai explains what the move can do while Sasuke runs down the wall of the stadium with the Chidori jb in his hand and rams right into Gaara's sand wall. The attack goes right through the wall and wounds Gaara! Lee tells himself how Sasuke's attack worked and that he couldn't even do it. Naruto on the other hand is now jealous of Sasuke because he could do that move, as Shikamaru points out. Now Naruto doubts he can defeat Sasuke even with th new Summoning Jutsu he has. On the stadium field Gaara fight back by unleashing the Shukaku's arm to counter attack sasuke. Sasuke jumps back and dodges the shukaku's moves. Konkurou and Temari point out how devasting that thing is and that Konkurou couldn't even eat for a week after seeing it the first time. Then Gaara's sand wall goes down, he holds his wound covered in blood, which he sees for the first time. Then Kabuto begins his planned attack by using a Sleeping Genjutsu technique. The invasion begins and all Sand and Sound Shinobi are READY!moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • When Gai admonishes Kakashi for teaching Sasuke Chidori, Kakashi is standing behind Gai and a step above him and therefore two steps above Lee. Yet when Kakashi then talks to Lee in the next frame, he is beside Gai, only one step above Lee.

    • In the very beginning of the episode, when they pan past Choji, the mark on his cheek is missing.

  • QUOTES (13)

    • Gaara: (Inside his shell) What is this...? It's so warm... What? Mother, what is it? (Blood drops on Gaara's hand, scene switches to outside the stadium) AAAAHHH!!! BLOOD! IT'S MY BLOOD!!!
      Kankuro: Wha...? What's happening? (Sasuke tries to pull his Chidori out of Gaara's shell. Sasuke screams)
      Temari: (Thinking) Impossible! Gaara in pain? (Sasuke pulls out his arm, and pulls out giant sand hand from Gaara's shell)

    • Baki, Temari, and Kankuro: The operation has begun!

    • Kankuro: Is that thing taking over again?
      Temari: I don't know! This has never happened before! I think he's hurt.

    • Temari: Is it possible? Gaara's in pain?

    • Shikamaru: (Thinking) Hmph, look at him. A minute ago he thought Sasuke wasn't strong enough, now he thinks he's too strong and he's jealous.

    • Gai: Chidori! Also known as the Lightning Blade.
      Sakura: Why is that?
      Gai: It got that name because Kakashi once used it to cut a lightning bolt in half before it could touch the ground.
      Sakura: (Thinking) Wow, cutting lightning in half!
      Ino: (Thinking) Yeah right, these old guys and their war stories.
      Choji: (Thinking) Whoa!

    • Kakashi: If you've wondered why I've insisted on training Sasuke myself, it's because he's a lot like me.

    • Kankuro: What's that lunatic think he's doing? How long is he going to stay in that thing?
      Temari: I don't know, but he's not following the plan. He's no good to us like that.
      Shino: (Overhears the conversation) Plan?

    • Kakashi: Keep your eye on Sasuke; he's about to surprise you.

    • Kakashi: You know Sasuke and I weren't just goofing around, there was a reason we were late getting here.

    • Naruto: This isn't the time to talk!
      Kakashi: Exactly, so shut up and watch!

    • Gaara: What is this warm liquid? Mother, what happened? It's blood! MY BLOOD!!!

      ~Japanese version

    • Gai: (After describing Chidori, he looks back at Kakashi) But, you've taught him a reckless move.
      Kakashi: (Gives Gai a very annoyed look) I don't want to hear that from you. (Looks at Lee) Right, Lee? (Lee looks at Kakashi askance)
