Episode Summary

The Bewildering Forest

The boat which the group is in falls over the waterfall. Naruto, Gantetsu, and Todoroki escape into the forest, which turns out to be a ninja dropout hideout. Traveling through the forest, they defeat one of the ninja dropout members, and find a group of orphans in the forest. Then Todoroki reveals he plans to kill Gantetsu to avenge his family, and then kill Naruto so no witnesses are left behind.

  • Not much happening here.

    This episode is probably one of the more boring ones. Sure, Naruto uses rasengan a few times here, but it wasn't to exciting. Sakura and Lee still arn't much help to Naruto, ending up chasing after some Ninja kids.

    Gantetsu has sort of gotten an alliance with Naruto, which actually isn't too much of a surprise because of how he was acting throughout this filler so far.

    The kid ninja are very mysterious, though. I'm actually thinking that those kids are probably the kids that Gantetsu saved. (Yeah, I don't think he killed the captain's brother.)

    Overall, this installment doesn't seem all to interesting. While a lot still needs to be filled in so far, this episode goes through doing part of it in a rather boring way.moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (4)

    • The boat falling off of the waterfall would never have caused a fire.

    • When one of the shinobazu made the tributary for the bottom half of the boat to travel down, he tunneled it into a cliff face, but in this episode, the boat does not go into the tunnel, but off a waterfall?

    • The snake that obstructs the way of Naruto's three man party is, in reality, not poisionous at all. It is a king snake, often confused with the actually deadly corral snake. As the rhyme says: "Red touches black, (referring to the stripes) venom lack. Red touches yellow, kill a fellow".

    • When Todoroki is telling Naruto they should kill Gantetsu before the Shinobazu get him, we see him from behind. If you look at his left side, the sheath for his sword is nowhere to be seen.

  • QUOTES (4)

    • (The Shinobazu are closing in on them quickly)
      Naruto: Here they come again. We gotta run! Hey, we gotta get moving.
      Todoroki: I won't allow him to escape. The safest thing is to finish him off right here.
      Naruto: What are you up to? What the heck do you mean finish him off?
      Todoroki: He's certain to be found guilty and sentenced to death anyway. We can save them the trouble. Better that than to let his friends rescue him!
      Naruto: Take it easy! They haven't rescued him yet! Let's go! (Naruto grabs Gantetsu's arm and starts to run) Your mission is the same as mine. We're supposed to guard him, not be his judge and executioner!

    • Shura: My jutsu isn't ninjutsu, it's a murder jutsu.

    • Shura: All right, kid. You'd better get out of there or you're gonna get hurt.
      Naruto: I'm no kid and if you think we're handing him over to you, you're crazy.

    • (Lee Struggling to stay above the surface)
      Lee: Sakura-san!
      (Sakura jumps out of water and uses her chakra to run on top it to drag Lee to shore)
      Sakura: Lee-san, are you okay?
      Lee: Yeah, amazingly enough. More importantly, where is Naruto-kun?
