  • A must watch, the best season 1 episode ever!!

    Personally my favorite episode of the first series, this is the when everyone is put into teams. This is your first inside of what Team7 (Naruto,Sakura,Sasuke) first think of each other.How Sakura and Sasuke feel for each other(it is more like what Sakura feels for him) is the main point of this episode and with Naruto thrown in it is one hell of a funny episode.Sakura has an obvious crush on Sasuke like most girls and Naruto wonders why.This is a must watch episode and can easily be seen more than 5times without getting old.Also, though i don't really like it that much, there are some Sasu-Naru in it;perfect for those fangirls out there who absolutely love it.moreless

    The third episode opens up to Naruto waking up. He wakes up to a breakfast of ramen and milk. He excuses himself from breakfast and puts on his hitai-ate. He then sets out for the next and upcoming level of ninja school. Today is the day of truth for Naruto as he becomes a real ninja. It is the Orientation for all new ninjas at the Ninja Academy.

    On his way to school, he comes in contact with Konohamaru, Naruto's temporary student. Konohamaru attempted to sneak up behind Naruto and attack him. He foolishly tripped on his own cloth instead. Naruto, full of pride, makes his headband distinct to Konohamaru. His headband signifies him as a real ninja.

    Meanwhile, Haruno Sakura is preparing for the Orientation at the Ninja Academy, as well. Her mother calls out to her and she gets annoyed. She thinks that her mother still thinks of her as a baby. While walking to the academy, Sakura encounters someone who could be labeled as her old friend and new rival. This person is identified as Ino. After an exchange of insults, they race each other to their oom. In the oom, Shikamaru sees Naruto. He tells Naruto that he is not supposed to be there because he didn't pass the exam. Naruto shows him his headband which proves that he is a ninja. In the distant, a girl sees Naruto and was happy that he passed. Sakura and Ino arrived in the room. They got into an argument about who arrived first. Sakura then starts to head towards Naruto. Naruto thinks she's there for him but she just pushed him aside because she wants to sit besides Sasuke.

    An argument is ignited to whom should sit next to Sasuke. Every girl in the room starts to get into the argument as well. Uchiha Sasuke is an elite rookie and the only survivor of the Uchiha Clan massacre. Meanwhile, the jounins and the Hokage are having a meeting. The Hokage is showing the rookies to the jounins using his crystal ball.

    Naruto noticed he was not the center of the attention. A jealous Naruto stood up on top of the desk in front of Sasuke, staring down at him. A bystander pushes Naruto, and he falls on top of Sasuke. He accidentally kisses him. Sakura is very mad at Naruto that he stole Sasuke's first kiss, instead of her. Sakura beats Naruto out of jealousy.

    begins when Iruka, the oom's teacher, walks in. He settles down the and tells them that they will be divided into groups of three-man teams to enhance their training. It turns out that Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura become a team. It's obvious that Naruto is happy to be with Sakura and Sakura is happy to be with Sasuke. Sasuke feels that both of his teammates will just get in his way. Hyuuga Hinata, a fellow graduate, is disappointed not to be paired up with her crush, Naruto.

    The scene opens to lunchtime. Sakura insults Naruto and ventures off to find Sasuke. Naruto, looking for revenge, locates Sasuke eating by himself. Shikamaru, Ino, and Chouji see that Naruto is sneaking up behind Sasuke. The two fight and ultimately, Sasuke is victorious. Ino is so happy to see that Sasuke was able to defeat Naruto. He ties Naruto up in the end. After the fight, Sasuke joins Sakura for lunch and questions her feelings about Naruto. She goes on and on about how annoying he is and how she does not understand him.

    There is a flashback to the building where Sasuke tied up Naruto. Instead of Naruto being tied up, it showed Sasuke tied and gagged. Naruto used his Kage Bunshin no Jutsu to overwhelm Sasuke and transform into him. Both the transformed Sasuke and Sakura are in the park alone. Just as they are about to kiss, Sasuke proclaims he has stomach problems and runs off to the bathroom. While the transformed Sasuke is in the bathroom, the real Sasuke walks passed Sakura. He cares nothing for her as he looks for Naruto. He wanted to figure out why Naruto attacked him during lunch. Sasuke sees Naruto as he is coming out of the bathroom. He questions him. As another fight between the two starts, Naruto caught himself in a bad position. He had to relieve himself.moreless
