EDIT
The group struggles to find a Bikochu, but seems to fail at every turn. Naruto messes up a few times, nearly getting them eaten by a giant Bikochumo bug in the process, while the group continues to be watched. However, when it starts raining, they only have one more chance to find it. Thanks to Hinata's Byakugan, they succeed in finding one. Their celebrations are short lived though, because Hinata's kidnapping forces them to make a critical decision.moreless

  • Funny how Naruto is always the pick dog no matter what squad he's in.

    This episode? Well, not much happened in this episode. It was an amusing search for the scent bug, but other than that, what happened? I was hoping that this arc would have concentrated on Hinata and Shino, and while Hinata is getting a lot of attention, Shino still largely remains as an unknown. Even in this episode though we didn't get to see much of Hinata; most of it was just the group trying to find the scent bug. Naruto finding the wrong bugs and claiming he got it right were humourous moments though. While the bridge to this episode to the next was decently transitioned, not really looking forward to it with how the antagonists were portrayed.moreless
  • Our group goes in search of the beetle.

    Naruto, Shino, Kiba, and Hinata reach the area where the Bikochu beetle should be. It is a forest that is surrounded by a steep cliff all around it. Everyone starts to search for the Bikochu beetle. Shino, Kiba and Hinata notice that they are being followed by three mysterious people and decide that they won't take any action unless the others do something to provoke a response. Naruto, of course, is totally oblivious to the situation and continues to search for the Bikochu beetle. Naruto finds two different beetles, but they are not the right ones. Hinata decides to focus her Byakugan and...moreless

  • Naruto finds Bikochu and Hinata gets kidnapped

    LOL, Naruto's such an idiot!!! While he's off looking for bugs that look nothing like the Bikochu, Shino, Kiba, and Hinata realize they're being followed. They all agree not to tell Naruto, for they know he will act foolishly. Unfortunatley, the Bikochu will hatch and be gone soon. The group senses rain, and Bikochu bugs grow up the day after it rains. So the group begins an intense search, Naruto working the hardest of them all. Hinata begins to worry that she is slowing the team down, and remembers her father telling her not to get in the way. Shino tells her that in the rain, it is easier to sense animals, or something along those lines. So she tries her Byakugan, and spies a Bikochu. Naruto captures it. Mission accomplished. Naruto is so thrilled, her hugs Hinata, embarrassing her once again. She goes down to the river to wash up, and is kidnapped by the three rival ninja. They send a ransom to Kiba, Shino, and Naruto, demanding the Bikochu for Hinata's safe return.moreless
  • The great bug hunt.

    9.1
    This episode is mainly about Naruto, Hinata, and Shino trying to find the Bikochuu. But Naruto was bad at it. He found beetles instead of the Bikochuu. They looked and looked but found nothing. Then Hinata activated her Byakugon. She searched and she found the Bikocuu. Naruto was like hugging her. She did prove her father wrong, that she's not in everybody's way and that she can help. Anyways, there's a group of people looking for that bug too. They kidnapped Hinata. The deal was to trade Hinata for the Bikochuu. Find out what happens in the next episode of Naruto.moreless

FILTER BY TYPE

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • In the scene when Naruto screams that he found Bikouchuu, and runs at Shino, Kiba, and Hinata, Shino takes with his right hand a photo of the bug out of his pocket. But on the close-up, when Naruto attentively watches and confirms that this is the bug (to be exact, it was the giant bug) they're looking for, Shino has the photo in his left hand.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Hinata: (Thinking) The mission was my idea, I'm responsible. If Naruto hasn't given up yet, then I can't give up either.

    • Naruto: (Running from giant beetle) Shino, didn't you say there were no dangerous insects here?!
      Shino: I said there were almost none, not zero!

    • Naruto: See, I knew I'd found the right one this time.
      Hinata: But... Um... Naruto...
      Kiba: I'm pretty sure this is a different insect.
      Naruto: Huh? What makes you say that?
      Shino: It's way too big to be our bug! How would you ever get this one to sniff out scents, you dummy?!

    • Naruto: Hey, Shino! Shino! I found one! I found one! I'm tellin' ya I found a Bikochu!
      (Kamizuru clan is in hiding)
      Jibachi: He found one already!
      Suzumebachi: Impossible!
      Kurobachi: When we spent ten days searching and couldn't find one? No way!
      Hinata: Oh, Naruto. You did it!
      Kiba: Are you positive? The last time...
      Shino: I want to see it.
      Naruto: (Shows bug to Shino) Well this is the bug right? See, it's exactly like that photo you showed us. Guess I must be some sort of insect hunting genius.
      Shino: (Shows Naruto the photo again) Does it look the same to you? The one you have is a Goliath Beetle.
      Naruto: Ah! It's not the same thing?

    • Naruto: Aw man, all these insects look totally alike.

    • Shino: (Shows picture) This is the female Bikochu. Remember it down to the smallest detail.
      Kiba: No problem.
      Hinata: Okay, got it.
      Naruto: Hey, ya know, I've seen one before.
      Kiba: You've seen it? Are you sure?
      Hinata: Where did you see one, Naruto?
      Naruto: Well... Uh... One time I accidentally left some food out and they started comin' outta nowhere, whole bunch of 'em, everywhere. So those were Bikochu. Those things should be easy for us to catch.
      Kiba: You're kidding me?
      Hinata: Um, Naruto...
      Shino: No, those were just cockroaches.

    • Kurobachi: You think they're after the Bikochu just like we are, huh, Jibachi?
      Jibachi: Well if someone wanted the Bikochu, they would have to come to this exact place at this time of year.
      Suzumebachi: Remember, the fate of the whole Kamizuru clan rests on the outcome of our mission. No matter who stands in our way, we must get that Bikochu.

    • Tsunade: Ah! This is so relaxing. Peacetime is such a wonderful thing. I can sit here eating and lounging all day long.
      (Shizune bursts in)
      Shizune: This is not the time for you to be lounging around in a bath! It's so rare when the village is at peace. You should use this time to do your paperwork.
      Tsunade: Oh, why does it seem like no matter how much paper work I do, there's always more?
      Shizune: Because you never see a single item through to completion, Lady Tsunade!

    • Shino: Almost none of these insects can harm humans, but, just in case, I have the Aburame clan secret repellent.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Shino: Though I would prefer not to use it since it would also repel the Bikochu.
      Naruto: Great, then what was the point of even bringing it along?

    • Naruto: I found the Bikouchuu!
      Hinata: That's great Naruto-kun!
      Kiba: Are you sure, Naruto?
      Shino: Let's see it.
      (Naruto holds out a beetle)
      Naruto: See, this is it, right? It's the same as the picture! I'm a genius when it comes to finding bugs!
      Shino: That's a helmet beetle.
      Naruto: What?! It's not the same?!

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: Hinata, it's all thanks to you!
      (Naruto hugs Hinata in a tight embrace and jumps up and down shaking her)
      Hinata: (Thinking) Naruto is... He's...(Hinata turns bright pink) Naruto... I can't believe he was so close to me.
