  • What the hell...

    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.
  • Naruto vs. Neji a battle first

    Wow, Naruto is indeed late. Wow, Naruto obviously Naruto woke up late and then thank god he just made it on time to the stadium. He looked nervous. The new round sheet was changed. Dosu's death led Shikamaru to fight Temari. Well first off, Hiashi tells HInabi that Neji is even stronger than her. The round starts off Neji vs. Naruto. The battle starts off with Naruto throwing Kunais at Neji and Neji blocking them. He at least earned Kiba's respect. Neji was quick and blocked all Naruto's attacks. When Naruto used Shadow Clone, the jonins and proctors were all so proud and surprised. But Neji comes through like Tenten said. His defense is useful.

    Naruto walks back to his room to get some sleep before the final competition tomorrow. Shikamaru tries to get his dad to go home with him, but his dad has had too much saki and wants to stay and party. Naruto goes to bed, but cannot get any sleep. He gets up the next morning and starts to doubt himself. He goes out to the training field where he trained as a genin. He runs into Hinata there and they start to talk. Naruto lets her know that he is doubting himself and she gives him a pep talk to brighten his spirits...
  • This was terrible rofl.

    Naruto woke up late the day of the chunin exams. He scurries out of his him and gets racing. On the way he meets up with Konohamaru, Naruto was almost there it was only like 100 yards and he was straight in front of it. But konohamaru said he could get him there faster by going through a shortcut, but it turned out the shortcut was sealed, konohamaru then took him to another shortcut. Which caused them to be even father away. Now was a place with a buch of bulls near by. So Naruto hopped on and they got mad at him and they chased him to the stadium. They throw him in and its over. So it just showed him making unnecessary steps to get to the stadium.
  • Naruto rushes to the battle arena and meets up with Hinata who gives him a little confidence and he also meets uo with Konohamaru who makes short cuts that takes even more time.

    Naruto wakes up late, I am not surprised. He has to rush to the battle arena to get there on time. He meets up with Hinata who gives him a little confidence. Naruto wasn't feeling so well because Neji was very skillful but Hinata just gave him more confidence and so he was on his way. It was nice to see this moment because it was like seeing Hinata doing a big favor for Naruto after the preliminary round. Naruto also meets up with Konohamaru. He seems even more annoying than before. He tries to make even more shortcuts for Naruto to get to the arena but they are so time consuming. Naruto had a better chance by just running to the arena then using Konohamaru's advise to get there quicker. Overall this episode went well but to see that Sasuke wasn't at the arena was really terrible but he'll be there.
  • Naruto tries to get to the final rounds, but Konohamaru keeps getting him lost.

    Dun da da dun dun!!!!! The final rounds have arrived!!!!! Naruto runs to the stadium as fast as he can. He stops be th training grounds, he is met by Hinata Hyuga. They talk for a while. Naruto has some dougts, and asks how strong Neji actually is, considering they're cousins and Hinata had to fight him in the preliminaries. Hinata tells him that Neji is strong, but Naruto must never give up. She tells Naruto that she believes in him. Naruto stares in awe and thinks, "Is this that same shy little Hinata?" Then he thanks her and goes on his way. Naruto is almost late. He's almost there, when little Konohamaru shows up and tells him of a shortcut. Naruto agrees, and they end up falling down a hole that lands in the hot spring, which actually farther away from the battle arena. Then the honorable grandson shows him how to ride a bull to the final ronds. It bucks him off, then spots the red swirl on Naruto's orange jumpsuit. It and a herd of other bulls chase him to the stadium, and Naruto ends up being on time after all.
  • it was dragged out too long.

  • Naruto getting chased by bulls was really funny lol.

    Well once again Naruto is alte for his match, he's late for everything though lol. But this time he gts there by getting chased by bulls which is really funny. And awww Naruto has an admirer. She is so cute and so cool and really looks up to Naruto and believes in him. I like her. And this is the episode where the final matches are set to begin. And then there is the element Konohamaru who almost makes Naruto late and is the one who gets bulls after him. What will Naruto do with him?? lol. I realy liked this episode as it leads up to some good battles. Cna't wait.

  • Not that great

    6.4
    Naruto is going to the finals and gets ready. So he is going and Hinata come to him. Hinata was about to express who she feels about Naruto but her timidness comes in. So Naruto calls her timid, weird, and well you get the point. so he continues to go but it is about to starta=. Naruto finds Konahamaru and Konahamaru just makes it almose worse but Naruto goes with the little kid. He go to a hotspring and see the feudal lords bulls. It becomes attractted to the red symbol on naruto's back. The bulls chase Naruto and Naruto makes into the place. I didn't like the idea of it.
  • Great, but not in the manga.

    9.0
    This episode just became one of my favorites. I liked it when Naruto got chased after by those bulls and also when his shadow clones tried split up parts of the bulls. I also liked it when Naruto took that second shortcut and ended up at the bath house. I wonder what would have happened if Naruto had to forfiet? He'd probbably go to ramen noodle shop and then go every day and get fat and feel depressed that he did'nt get picked to be Hokage of the village and then probbably kill himself. That would have been the end of the series for sure.
  • wow that was good i really like that hinata and naruto part....

    9.2
    i also think it was a good set up episode. it was about the day befor the big fight of naruto vs. neji and hinata gives naruto a talk to cheer him up. so it was really good the japan naruto and american naruto are really differnt they show stuff that was not even in the japan naruto. oh ya my spelling just got 10 times better and let me know if you agree or disagree ckeck my reviews on naruto i am trying to write one for every episode if you dont all ready know over all naruto rocks
  • Naruto rushes to the arena

    10
    So the episode is mainly about Naruto's rush to the arena, because he's late, as usual. But anyways, the episode starts off with the competitors preparing themselves for their fights tomorrow. Then the second half of the episode, like stated, is about Naruto trying to get to the arena in time. But along the way he meets Konoharmaru, who attempts to help Naruto by giving him "shortcuts." But they lead Naruto astray and delaying him. Though in the end Naruto does make, with a little help from some bulls. I thought this episode was really funny and cool with some first appearances. Two of the funny things were Konoharmaru call the feudal lord's bulls "Super Bulls", which sounds like "Super Bowl," and when the bull is about to chase Naruto, it starts reving up like a car. The cool thing was the first appearance of Shikamaru's, Ino's, and Choiji's dad, and Shikamaru's dad didn't even know his son was in the finals.
  • The final match begins!

    10
    Its the first beginning of the final.Naruto is having his roman noodles.The people working in the roman noodle shop wondered where Naruto was.As he explained that he was in the hospital.The next day is the match.Naruto is unsure he could win.As he walked he noticed Hinata.But Hinata was surprise to see him there.Hinata tells Naruto,that he might be still be able to beat him and she tells him that he could do it and gave him the encouragement.Naruto begin to see that he was going to be late for the match.Komahamru begin to help NAruto to get to the arena quickly.The match is about to begin.Apparently Sasuke and Naruto are missing.Altough Naruto finally makes his grand enterance.

    This is an funny episode of course.We see Chouji,Ino,and Shikamaru parents in the resterunt.Yes first time we see their father's.
  • what a weird episode...An Anime King review.

    10
    This episode was as weird as weird gets. Naruto listens to Konahamaru's so called fool proof plans. All of then failed horribly. Nobody fought in this episode. It was really just about Naruto finding a way to the main matches. But I wonder... where is Sasuke, he didn't show up at the matches and they're about to begin! This has been an Anime King review.
