Episode Summary

The Race Is On! Trouble on the High Seas!
Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke continue to follow Idate while fending off attacks by three shinobi sent by Wagarasi. They find out that if Idate does not win the race, the Feudal Lord Gokaro will make sure the Wasabi clan is disbanded. After fighting their way out of some tough spots, the four finally reach the sea where Idate tells the three why he did not get in the boat before. They borrow an old man's boat but are attacked by the same shinobi while out at sea. Can Naruto, Sakura, and Sasuke protect Idate in such a confined area?moreless

  • meh

    Truly uninspiring filled with too many holes and dull moments. One even though it was implied that Idate noticed that the weather was going to change only 5 seconds before the race started, he is able to get a boat as if he planned it 5 days ago. Okay? Two, that flashback between Idate and Jirochou was pretty bland, something about it just seemed so boring. Three, those ninjas that are trying to kill Idate, Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke just need to die. We go from super badass enemies like Neji, Gaara, to these low level ninja that couldn't even make it to the preliminaries. So uninspiring.moreless
  • Old rivals return

    Idate takes a detour with Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura in pursuit. As they go along Idate explains why he did not get in the boat to cross, it seams there was a storm coming and he decided to go around to a northern port to avoid the storm. Unknown to them, they are being followed by three Hidden Rain shinobi. These shinobi are the same ones that Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kabuto fought in the Forest of Death. Naruto and Idate fall into a trap, but Sasuke and Sakura see it and warn Naruto who saves Idate in the nick of time. They make it to the sea shore where Idate gets a boat from an old man and they set off. Once out to sea, they are ambushed by the Hidden Rain Shinobi....moreless
  • Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura and Idate try to sail to the island but the ninja from the mist that Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura fought in the Chunin exams are back. Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Idate swim toward the island.moreless

    Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Idate sail to the island when the ninja from the mist that Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura fought in the Chunin exams are back and try to destroy them along with Idate. It wasn't a surprise that the ninja from the mist were back because of the preview for this episode but if it hadn't been for the preview it would have been a surprise. Idate is finally learning to trust Naruto, Sasuke and Sakura in this episode which is really a good thing. So at the end Sasuke, Naruto, Sakura and Idate swim to the shore of the island when Idate is then confronted by Aoi and the ninja's are still swimming to shore. This was a good episode because of the surprise ninja and the fight that happened.moreless
  • yay...go Idate....

    Well now that Idate is running off in the wrong direction of the boat he's supposed to get on to get to the shrine, Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura must chase after him. He reveals that he was planning to take a different boat on another shore because the wind was blowing in the opposite on the original. They decide to trust him after he reveals why he wants to win: If he loses the Wasabi family will be disbanded. After he reveals this, their ship is attacked by the same Rain-genin they stole the scroll from in the Chunin Exams. Will they be able to stop them?moreless
