    Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura have made it to the temple with the Heaven and Earth scrolls. They read a sign posted on the wall and figure out that they must open the scrolls now. Nauto and Sakura open the scrolls and a summoning jutsu is released. Iruka senei appears. Iruka congratulates Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura for completing the second chunin exam. Sakura asks Iruka about the sign on the wall and he explains what it means. If a ninja is lacking knowledge he should study harder and if a ninja is physically weak they should train that much harder every day. Now all the genin are to assemble in a room to hear instructions from the third Hokage....moreless
  • Kinda Boring.

    This episode is the last one for The Chunin Exams arc: Phase Two, what the point of the scrolls were and the concern of which Iruka still has for Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura. This was a good way to end an arc. The explanation that the 3rd Hokage gave for the preliminary round was informative and it made sense. This episode also showed the concern in which Sakura had for Sasuke. Sakura needs to learn not to get into anyone's business. I know she cares about Sasuke but she just needs to learn not to be so nosy. The episode was informative about the exam.moreless

  • The rookies are back together again.

    The episode started out with Iruka discribing what the scolls meant. Meanwhile, Kabuto was helping Orochimaru. Yup, he works for Orochimaru. He's a spy for Orochimaru. Guess what? The nine rookies are back together again. The sand and sounds made it too. So did Team 9. Anko and the examinators was talking about Orochimaru and how the ANBU cannot defeat him. Anyways, it's time to start battle. There was so many candidates left that they have to do a preliminary round. The 3rd Hokage explained the rules. Who will battle who? Find out on the next episode of Naruto .moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • In one of the scenes where The Hokage is explaining about the Third Exam, Sakura's hair is long. A few scenes later, she has her current short hair.

    • When Iruka is telling Team 7 that they had found out the secret of the scrolls, the symbol on Sasuke's shirt disappears. However, a few seconds later, it is back.

  • QUOTES (6)

    • Hokage: The third exam is a fight for life with the pride of your village and your own dreams at stake.

    • Iruka: If a scroll was opened, we were ordered to knock out whoever opened it...some ninja found that out the hard way.
      Sasuke: Heh! It's a good thing you didn't open up yours...huh, Naruto?
      Naruto: I owe you one! Thanks a million, Kabuto!
      Inner Sakura: Cha! That was a close one!

    • Lee: (Thinking) Guy-Sensei is just the coolest teacher ever. I mean, he is so cool, he practically glows with cool. (out-loud) You watch, Guy-Sensei! Someday I'll make you proud of me! (Lee flashes back to how he tried to protect Sakura, then thinks how he saw Sakura cry) I do not want to see tears from anyone close to me ever again. That is why, I am never going to lose again Guy-Sensei! Never!

    • Tenten: (Thinking) So, that's Guy-Sensei's old rival, huh? Well, if I had to judge them on looks alone, I'd say Guy-Sensei would lose.

    • Gai: I see your team didn't do too bad, Kakashi. They must've gotten real lucky. Of course, with my team still around, your team is doomed to failure. And after all, what matters on the next test is ability, and we've got you far outclassed. Well, I guess part of growing up is learning to deal with heartbreak. Huh, Kakashi?
      Kakashi: Hmm? Did you say something?
      Gai: AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! (Thinking) All right, Kakashi, you win this round! Boy, that drives me nuts when you act so cool! There's no way I'm gonna let you get the best of me!

    • Third Hokage's Message:

      (Read By: Sakura)

      If qualities of Heaven are what you desire,
      Train your mind to academics higher.
      If Earthly skills are what you lack,
      Train your body in the field of attack.
      When Heaven and Earth are opened together,
      The path of rightousness will never leave your grasp forever.
      This " " is the secret way,
      That leads us to this place today.
