  • There are too many genin. Now the genin must face each other in battle to reduce the amount of candidates.

    Seven teams, twenty one genin, have made it through the second exam. The third Hokage feels that it is necessary to have a preliminary round of fights in order to reduce the amount of genin candidates. The proctor asks if there is any genin that is not physically able to handle the round of fights to please step out. Sakura wants Sasuke to bow out, but he refuses. Kabuto, however, does drop out much to the surprise of Naruto. Sasuke is to fight one of Kabuta's teammates in the first match. Before the match starts, Kakashi tells Sasuke that if the curse mark starts to become a problem, he will stop the fight....moreless
  • A Good fight here.

    The preliminary round begins with Kabuto dropping out and Sakura getting into Sasuke's business about the cursed seal that Orochimaru had given to him. I know Sakura just wants to help but she is really annoying. She needs to know that it is Sasuke's business only, not hers. I would have probably given told him my concern but she just had to get even more deep then she ever was. She was going to tell them about the curse mark. I agree with Sasuke, she is annoying. At the end of this episode Sasuke has to fight Yoroi who is one of Orochimaru's subordinates just like Kabuto. I wanted to see what will happen but that was the end of the episode. This episode is still awesome.moreless

  • Curse that Yoroi!!!!! He was mean to Sasuke!!!!!

    The 3rd Round Preliminaries end up being hand to hand combat. Hayate tells the Genin if any of them want to back now, they better do it or forever hold their pee. (That didn't really happen. Just some of my humor. :P) Kabuto backs out instantly. Naruto freaks out and gets mad, but Kabuto tells him he had an injury earlier in the test. As Kabuto walks away, he thinks to himself that if he had gone through with it, "The Old Kabuto" might have come out. The Sound Trio's Jonin is also revealed to be Orochimaru in disguise. Hayate activates a board that will decide who battle who and when. 1st up is Sasuke Uchiha vs. Yoroi Akado. Yoroi is on Kabuto's team.moreless
  • Sasuke's new move!!

    With so many participants still left, the groups are told that they will be pitted against each other in preliminary matches. Kabuto leaves, claiming he is too injured to go on. In truth he's reporting back to Orochimaru. His history is discussed among the Jounins. Then Sasuke is told he has to fight. They know that Sasuke was given the cursed seal and if it takes over they will stop him. He cannot use his sharingan. But Sasuke just uses his ninja fighting skills to fight. He uses the Lion Barrage to beat the shinobi, but was very weak after that.moreless
