Episode Summary

EDIT
Sasuke is still stuck in his trance and even Sakura's pleas can't get him back to normal. After remembering what his brother said, Sasuke begins to fight the Grass ninja again. Meanwhile, Anko searches for the Grass ninja fake. Sasuke falls behind in his fight with the Grass ninja but catches them off guard and ties them to a tree. Sasuke then uses his Katon: Ryuuka no Jutsu (Fire Element: Dragon Flame Jutsu) and it seems he has defeated the ninja. However, is the ninja truly defeated, or is there more to them than meets the eye?moreless

    Naruto has been knocked out and now Sasuke must face Orochimaru himself. Sasuke finds the courage to fight and activates his sharingan. He begins his attack and puts Orochimaru on the defensive. Sasuke is able to grab Orochimaru at one point and drive him headfirst into a large branch, but it wasn't really Orochimaru. He used a substitution jutsu and now attacks Sasuke. Sasuke is able to turn the tables and traps Orochimaru and uses his Dragon Flame Jutsu against Orochimaru. Sakura thinks he has defeated Orochimaru, but Orochimaru breaks free and gives Sasuke a curse mark. Orochimaru disappears and Sasuke cries out in pain until he passes out....moreless
  • This was very good.

    One of the best episodes ever. A rare gem in the long line up of Naruto episodes that offer nothing but stupid comedy and boring side stories.Excellent camera work. The animation style changed to a more bland and rag doll looking but it was dynamic overall.Its was simplistic, yet entertaining. I truely enjoyed watching it over and over. The episode had a clear focus, which was the struggle between Saskue and Orochimaru,as well as Sasuke's desire to prove himself, and he did just that.It had suspense, intrigue, plot development, a little character development, without any boring recap or prolonged explanation to distract you.If more episodes were made this way I would be glued to the tv forever.moreless
  • Sasuke fights the grass ninja (Orochimaru) and gets the cursed seal mark from Orochimaru.

    This was an awesome episode. Sasuke fights Orochimaru who is the grass ninja. Anko is also trying to find him. In the fight Sasuke sends a fireball at Orochimaru's face. His face looks melted off when Orochimaru's true face is seen underneath but just a part. I was really freaked out when I saw this. Then, Orochimaru stretches his neck and bites close to Sasuke's neck giving him a cursed seal. It gave so much pain to Sasuke. Sakura finally did something and took Naruto and Sasuke and cared for them. I liked this episode. Sasuke fought a great battle. Sasuke is very skillful and clever.moreless
  • Poor Sasuke!!!!!

    Sasuke finally realizes if he's gonna take Itachi down someday, he'll have to take Orochimaru first. Sasuke uses a bunch of fire justu and damages him and melts his face. (Ick!) Oro stop the fight and says he's seen enough and then makes his neck go like a giraffe and stretch out and he bits Sasuke on the neck like some kind of vampire type thingy. Meanwhile, Anko is busy doing Ankoish things and she stops and realizes that the Grass ninja from before was really her former teacher, Orochimaru. ('Bout time!) She runs the forest and finds him. They fight, she loses, and he bites her too. The episode ends with Sasuke and Naruto unconcious and the Sound Trio planning their attack.moreless

      ~Japanese version

      ~Japanese version

    • Dosu: Found you...All right, just as Orochimaru ordered, we strike at daybreak...and remember our target is the Uchiha.
      Zaku: Yeah, but if the other two gets in our way it's okay if we take them out, right?
      Dosu: Of course.

    • Anko: It's a paralysis jutsu!
      Anbu member #1: So there you are, Anko.
      Anko: Man, you Anbu goons took your time getting here, didn't you?
      Anbu member #2: Well, there's no need to get snippy.

    • Orochimaru: Bare this in mind, if anything happens to deprive me of my fun...it means the end of the Leaf Village.

    • Sakura: Sasuke...You! What have you done to Sasuke?
      Orochimaru: I just gave him a little parting gift. Very soon, Sasuke will seek me out. He'll desire my power. In the meantime, I enjoyed the demonstration of the powers you already possess.

    • Orochimaru: What a disappointment you turned out to be. Your ancestors weep...the Uchiha clan should thank me for killing you. Silly little worm.
      (explosion)
      Orochimaru: Incredible! A Sharingan windmill triple attack!
      Sasuke: (thinking) Fire style! Dragon Flame Jutsu!
      Orochimaru: Aaaahhh!
      Sakura: He did it! Sasuke! You did it! You okay? Don't worry...it's all over.
      Sasuke: Uh-uh! No...
      Orochimaru: Such mastery of the sharingan at so young an age...you're a true Uchiha after all...Yes, you'll do nicely! You are definitely his brother if anything, your eyes are keener than Itachi's

    • Orochimaru: You're good...you anticipate my attacks and your aim is true...you can see my moves, can't you?

    • Orochimaru: I knew it. It's finally happened. His Uchiha blood has come to a boil. I think I'll play with him a little and learn the full extent of his powers.

    • Lee: (Preview for the next episode) It is I, Rock Lee. Handsome devil of the Hidden Leaf Village. Everything is going just as I planned, Guy-Sensei! What better way to win the lovely Sakura's heart, than by recusing her!

    • (After Orochimaru puts his mark on Sasuke)
      Sakura: Naruto, Sasuke's hurt I need you. Naruto? I don't...I don't know what I'm supposed to do.

    • Sasuke: I've been such a fool, but I see it now. Naruto! Sakura! If I can't fight my own battles, then I won't stand a chance against him!

    • Anko: Don't tell me you came here to assassinate Lord Hokage?!
      Orochimaru: No, not yet...I still don't have enough followers for that. However, I heard such good things about this village, that I wanted to make it mine!

    • Anko: Did you come here to assassinate the Hokage?
      Orochimaru: No, no...I still don't have enough men to do that, but I was planning on reserving some outstanding ones from the village.

    • Orochimaru: I'm going to enjoy this. However, if you take away my joy...the whole village of Konoha will suffer!
