The main matches are finally going to start, and Naruto is fighting the very first match. He takes a little detour to the training area that made him a Genin and encounters the shy Hinata. The two have a little conversation that leaves Hinata happy, but Naruto late for the entrance ceremony! He needs a quick way to get to the stadium fast and collaborates with Konohamaru on different methods in doing so. All of them fail, but he eventually gets to the stadium in one piece.
Boring, flat out boring. It was murder to my eyes and ears seeing Hinata struggling to spit out her words without blushing and looking down with a voice so low that only Piccolo can hear. That sequence just felt like a total waste of time. If its purpose was to get Naruto and Hinata closer, it did a bad job. The second half was even worse. Can't even call it comic relief, it was just a waste of time seeing Naruto running around looking for faster ways to get to the stadium. Meh, at least the main matches are going to start.
