  • Sakura finally shows her true colors. A very speical episode.

    This is a great episode where Sakura finally reveals the fact that she isn't a burden to Team 7. At the beggining of the episode, Lee is finished by Dosu. Sakura is the only one left in her squad, Naruto and Sasuke are both disabled. As she trys to stop them, Kin grabs her hair and stops her. Sakura then remembers how her teammates had always been protecting her, and how she had always been in the back, even Lee who wasn't in her squad saved her. After in this flashback, she makes a desperate attempt of freedom, cutting her hair with a kunai. Ino, who is watching this with her squad, also has a flashback. She remembers how Sakura used to be a crybaby and how people mocked her because of her big forhead. In the flashback younger Ino gives younger Sakura a red ribbon as a symbol of friendship. After this, Sakura uses the substitution jutsu to get near Zaku and stabs a kunai into his arm while biting him. She is bleeding...a lot. As she is hit off, Ino realizes that she must save her friend and her and her team jump into save her. I thought this was a really great episode and Sakura showed her bravery and how she has improved from when she was a child. A great episode.
