  • An awesome episode.

    This episode was great especially how Neji found that leader of the Star Village maybe is hiding something that sounds really exciting. Naruto as always has a BIG mouth and talks alot which is really cool about him. The best about this episode was when Naruto came into there training room and the girl started to attack him. She later said that she fell on her butt that was really funny she also squished the jelly snacks that was funny also and I liked too. This episode was great and I enjoyed it ALOT and it was also excitins and it deserves a perfect 10/10.moreless
  • Finally! I was getting tired of that gay theme song. And my mom still thinks she knows more about anime than I do!

    My mom thinks she's an anime expert, but the only anime she ever watches is Avatar and Hamtaro. So I'm sitting on the couch in the dark in the sunroom watching this episode of Naruto, when I'm supposed to be packing for our vacation tomorrow, and she walks in and says, "Oh, Death Note!" I think she assumed that because I make a big deal about only watching Death Note in the dark. So I looked at her and said, "No, Naruto." Mom's seen Naruto before! She knows who he, Sasuke, Kiba, and Sakura are, but other than that, she's pretty clueless. So then she starts going on about Death Note, which she's never even seen, save for the characters on my T-shirt. So I just tuned her out and kept watching. ... I don't really know what to say about this episode. It's sort of like the one with the ghost, but with different people in a different village. Well, catch ya later! ;)moreless
  • Oh man...

    *sigh* looks like this arc is on another downward spiral into mediocrity like all the other filler arcs in this long and dreaded filler season. It just bewilders me how people can actually grow to like stuff like this. It is just so terrible! Nothing makes sense and the stories are just so fragmented with flaws and holes that you'd think the storyboard is headed by a bunch of elementary school kids. It just makes no sense how the star village hires shinobi from the leaf village and then are doing their best to get rid of them. And whatever little fighting there was in this episode sucked. Please be done by next episode!moreless
  • The star is stolen.

    The thief gets away with the star, but Sumaru recognizes the jutsu that the thief uses. They report what happened to the substitute Hoshikage. He seems alarmed at first by what Sumaru tells him. Neji notices something is amiss. After the meeting Neji tells Tenten and Lee to follow the Hoshikage around while he scouts around the village. Naruto asks what he should do and Neji tells him to follow Sumaru. Naruto follow Sumaru until he tells Naruto to go check on the other Star ninja that were ambushed when the star was stolen. When Naruto enters the building he is attacked by...moreless

Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


  • TRIVIA (1)

    • The song that is played when Rock Lee and Tenten are under the barrel, "Fooling Mode", was only played in Konoha until this episode.

  • QUOTES (32)

    • Lee: I've never been one for skulking around in the shadows.
      Tenten: Will you shut your trap? You're going to blow our cover.

    • Tenten: Same as ever, huh?
      Lee: Patience has never been his strong suit, no question.

    • Naruto: Hey, are those friends of yours who got knocked out going to be alright?
      Sumaru: Don't worry about it, okay.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Sumaru: You're outsiders, it's none of your concern. Now quit acting like we're friends.
      Naruto: That guy's a real piece of work.

    • Akahoshi: What? Someone made off with the star?
      Sumaru: Yes. There were people training there when it happened, but the enemy knocked them out with some sort of jutsu.
      Akahoshi: That's pathetic!
      Naruto: You wouldn't say that if you'd seen the chakra this guy was throwin' around!
      Lee: Was he truly that impressive a foe then?
      Naruto: Yeah, he was forming wings and beasts out of chakra. I've never seen anything like it.
      Akahoshi: Is this true, Sumaru?
      Sumaru: Yes. Ninja Art: Kujaku, no doubt about it.

    • Shizune: Our records show that particular form of training has been suspended for ten years now.
      Tsunade: After the Third Hoshikage came to power, he chose to put an end to it. But then, a year ago, he passed away, sadly, and the village lifted the ban.
      Shizune: It's curious, isn't it? I wonder what moved him to forbid it.
      Tsunade: Hard to say. Only the Village Hidden in the Stars is privy to that. Although, there have been a few rumors on the wind.
      Shizune: What do you mean?
      Tsunade: Well, details are spotty but most of the ninja who underwent the training, died from it.

    • Shizune: So the star their village was founded on, this says it's actually a meteorite?
      Tsunade: That's right. It dates back to the First Hoshikage who established the village. He discovered that by training in close proximity to the star, his chakra was strengthened. Ever since then, they've held a unique position among the hidden villages.

    • Neji: Naruto was correct.
      Lee: Using chakra to take to the air? That is a formidable shinobi!
      Tenten: Wow, so it was true.
      Naruto: Well, of course it was true. What are you saying, that you didn't believe me?
      Tenten: Pretty much.
      Naruto: Wha?! Huh?! Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence, Tenten.

    • Lee: There was a distress call from the training room. What in the world happened out here?
      Naruto: Bad news guys, the star was stolen. It was a ninja and he flew off using chakra somehow.
      Lee: You actually saw this?
      Tenten: Yeah, but shinobi can't fly, not that I've ever heard.

    • Sumaru's Lullaby:

      Natsuhiboshi, why are you so red?
      Because I had a sad dream last night.
      My eyes are red, from the tears I shed,
      Swollen as I cried.

      Natsuhiboshi, why've you lost your way?
      I'm searching for a child whose gone afar.
      He can't be found though I searched all day,
      My sad dreams come once more.

    • Lee: Creeping, creeping.
      Tenten: Will you stop saying that?!

    • Neji: Calm yourself! That canyon is full of poisonous gas.
      Naruto: Okay... Maybe you got a point.

    • Tenten: You ding-dong! We're on a surveillance mission here.

    • Naruto: Now that's good! Go on, dig in. The food's not going to eat itself.

    • Akahoshi: Hold up... First things first. We need to to distract these annoying little flies.

    • Naruto: Man, that guy is about as warn as a iceberg.

    • Naruto: I'll be on Sumaru like fleas on a dog.

    • Lee: Well, where there is smoke, there is fire. An inside job then?

    • Naruto: Let go! Let go I say!
      Neji: Calm down!

      ~Japanese version

    • Lee: It seems that this village has a secret.
      Tenten: It seems that way.

      ~Japanese version

    • Tenten: Follow me obediently.
      Lee: But!
      Tenten: That's an order

      ~Japanese version

    • Hokuto: I'm sorry, I got ahead of myself.
      Naruto: Other villages... Man, you guys are really cold.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: He's cold-hearted as usual...

      ~Japanese version

    • Tenten: Same as always.
      Lee: Naruto's always impatient, isn't he?

      ~Japanese version

    • Sumaru: You guys are outsiders. You're not comrades or anything like that.
      Naruto: What's with him?

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Are the ones taken out by that ninja all right?
      Sumaru: That's none of your concern.

      ~Japanese version

    • Neji: We will definitely retrieve the star.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: That ninja's chakra was amazing!

      Naruto: Yeah! Turning chakra into smoke and feathers, it was the first time I've seen something like that!

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: Due to the unknown nature of the star, it forcibly strengthens one's chakra. It probably causes negative effects on their bodies.

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: I said it was true! You mean you didn't believe me?
      Tenten: Guess not.
      Naruto: What's with that? Am I that untrustworthy?

      ~Japanese version

    • Lee: But, it seems like this is going against my ninja arts.
      Tenten: Don't complain.
      Lee: Sneakily.
      Tenten: Enough with sneakily!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sumaru's Lullaby:

      Why is the summer star red?
      Last night, I had a sad dream.
      I was crying and talking, with red eyes.

      Why has the summer star lost its way?
      I know such childish stories.
      That's why I have such sad dreams.

      ~Japanese version

    • Tenten: Somehow he pisses you off, doesn't he?

      ~Japanese version
