  • Sasuke gets jealous of Naruto?

    The fight between Sasuke and Naruto was surprisingly intense; both of them actually fighting to their full strength and revealing their best ninja techniques such as Naruto's mass shadow replications and Sasuke's flame throwers. It ends in an exciting note with Sasuke using his chidori and Naruto his rasengan with Sakura trying to jump into the middle. What people will almost always overlook in this episode is the segment with Chouji and Shikamaru. These two have a pretty great and ongoing developing relationship with each other it is a treat to see every time we see them together. What hampers this episode down though is the overuse of flashbacks but it isn't as bad as in previous episodes.
