  • Secret of the Mystery Girl

    (For Episodes 202-204)

    As a start for the new season, we get a new opening and ending. Both excellent as we see the crew in suits and stuff as if they were in high school or something. Gaara and Kankurou's especially. Naruto fights Lee and Neji in the opening credits too.

    Kurenai has decided that she has to leave behind Squad 8 to take care of a personal matter that now has become an issue for her. Naruto meets a talented artist that foretold the lightning strike of the Hokage Mansion. What is behind these acts? Who is this girl? Naruto gets in trouble with ANBU for sneaking, hehe, silly Naruto. Do not mess with these guys fox boy.

    Sakura also gets a mission too, she helps Team 8 along with Gai as a medic. Yay! And because this is a Genjutsu-based Arc, she's useful here as Naruto never learned to deal with this stuff and being Taijutsu-centric, hilarity ensues when he gets into trouble with Kurenai only to be woken by Akamaru ;) Good boy Akamaru x3 By the second and third episode, we learn about the girl Yakumo Kurama, who is a very talented genjutsu-user as we hear, but is sealed by Kurenai for what she says she was envious of her. But, can that really be true?

    Yakumo also gets attacked by her own clan members who were thought to be underground and dissipated. What can all this mean? What kind of ability does Yakumo have hidden within her? Why seal it? We won't find out until next weekmoreless
  • Yakumo...

    Yakumo... She's really something, isn't she? I realize this review is really late, forgive me. Inuyasha records every night and Naruto does only once a week, and I need the space on my DVR. So I only got around to watching it yesterday. Anyway, Naruto repeadetly gets knocked out by the ANBU and Kurenai because he doesn't know when to keep his big nose out of it! And then there's the scoldings by Sakura... I kind ahad to make innuendos because my mom kept running the vaccuum the whole time I was watching this... Tsunade throws a squad together to go recapture the "kidnapped" Yakumo, I think...moreless
  • The compound where is held comes under seige.

    Naruto gets caught trying to enter the compound where Yakumo is being held and sedated. He wakes up in the Leaf Village hospital and Sakura has been watching over him. He remembers what happened at the compound and takes off to find Kurenai to ask her more questions. He gets to her apartment and finds out that she has already left. Guy is there and tells him that she left a while ago. Naruto heads off to find her. Meanwhile, the compound where Yakumo is being held is come under attack. The ANBU and the medical ninja are captured, but one of the ninja are able to get a messenger pigeon off...moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

    • When Gai, Kiba, Hinata, Shino, and Sakura were running down the path Sakura was running close to the left side of it, but she tripped over Naruto whose feet which were barely sticking out of the right side of the path.

  • QUOTES (11)

    • Naruto: (Thinking) Kurenai-sensei, what have you gotten yourself into? Tell us what's going on!

    • Sakura: Can you believe that guy? That jerk could have at least thanked me for sitting by his bedside all night long. (A bird flies over Sakura and leaves a dropping on her face) AAAAAAHHHH!!!!

    • Kurenai: I did use a sealing jutsu on her. I took away my own students power.
      Naruto: I don't get it, how could you do that?
      Kurenai: It all happened a little over a year ago. With my own hands, I crushed her dream of becoming a shinobi. Up until then, I had been giving her one-on-one unlock her hidden genjutsu.
      Naruto: You're kidding me?!
      Kurenai: But I failed her. I can't be trusted with the lives of the Squad Eight ninja.
      Naruto: But why did you do it?
      Kurenai: This discussion is over.

    • Naruto: (Banging on Kurenai's door) Open up, will ya?!
      Guy: Don't waste your time. She already left.
      Naruto: Eh?
      Guy: Hey, since you're up so early anyway, whadda you say you join me for an early morning marathon?
      Naruto: This ain't exactly the best time.
      Guy: Early morning marathons are great. All that healthy marathon sweat purges the impurities in your body that might build up after a night of sleep.

    • (Sakura bangs on a pot to wake Naruto up)
      Naruto: Oh, hey Sakura. Umm... Question: Where am I? And how the heck did I wind up lying in bed? Wait, I know! Kurenai-sensei got stabbed and my heart was pulled out of my chest! Nah, that's not it. Where's that girl? You know, Yakumo.
      Sakura: (Sighs) You don't remember any of it, do you? You got caught breaking into a safe house in the mountains, you idiot!

    • (Naruto is having a dream while he is unconcious)
      Yakumo: Tell me why I'm not good enough! I want to become a ninja more than anything in my life! I just have to become one!
      Kurenai: I already told you, you should give up.
      Yakumo: But I can't!
      Kurenai: Then I'll have to perform a sealing jutsu; if I seal your power, you can't keep going.

    • Sakura: Damn that Naruto! He didn't even thank me for watching over him all night long!
      (Bird sent by Medical ninja at the cottage poops on Sakura's face)
      Tsunade: Isn't it about time we took a tea break?
      Shizune: We will after you've finished up this paperwork.

      ~Japanese version

    • (Sakura pulls sleeping Naruto out from a bush)
      Hinata: Naruto-kun!
      Kiba: I can't believe he fell asleep in a place like this! (Akamaru pees on Naruto's face and Kiba laughs) That's great, Akamaru!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sakura: This mission gives me the chance to show everyone just how much I've improved as a medical ninja! (Trips and falls flat on her face) That hurt!

      ~Japanese version

    • Gai: Okay! Leave this to me! I won't let a maiden shed tears! The Fierce Beast of Konoha, Maito Gai, will save her!

      ~Japanese version

    • Sakura: What are you blabbering about? If you don't snap out of it, I'll give you a injection of something to wake you up.

      ~Japanese version
