    Kakashi has already caught Naruto who fell for the same trap twice and now Sasuke attacks him with some shurikens. The shurikens hit but it was revealed that Kakashi used a replacement jutsu. Sasuke rushed to get out of his position because apparently it was all a trap to see where Sasuke is. He then sets his sights on Sakura....He immediately uses a genjutsu (illusion) on her to make her believe that poor Sasuke is near death. She immediately screams in horror. She then passes out and there is Kakashi commenting that she should have known it was a trick. [While of course reading "come come paradise"].(make out paradise in the English dub) Sasuke hears Sakura's scream, he turns to find Kakashi in front of him still reading and telling him how he so easily defeated Sakura. "Sasuke: But....I'm different from them. Kakashi: Why don't you say that after you get one of the bells?" Kakashi walks towards him, stares down; Sasuke throws everything he has at him in his arsenal. It was a trap, a distraction, Sasuke shoots a kunai at a rope that Kakashi has slide under to only release more weapons. Kakashi dodges them easily but is still surprised that he even tricked him. Kakashi is not even on his feet yet when Sasuke appears behind him performing a mid air roundhouse kick. Kakashi grabs his right leg, Sasuke then throws a left punch but then Kakashi grabs his arm. Sasuke kicks with his left leg and Kakashi blocks it. Sasuke's head is now facing the ground (apparently as planned) and he can now use his left hand to grab at the bells, before it's too late (Sasuke had two fingers on the bell) Kakashi then pushes Sasuke away from him. Meanwhile Sakura awakens, still the young lady is a little embarrassed that her legs were apart while she was knocked out( she has on shorts under her outfit)She remembers what she had seen before she fainted. Sakura: Sasuke!!! Don't Die and Leave me behind!!!! Naruto, still hanging from the tree by one leg, he then lifts his head only to see the two lunches prepared for the people who pass the exam. Kakashi and Sasuke still facing each other stare down. Kakashi does admit that Sasuke is different from the other two. Sasuke is obviously tired of talking and prepares to do his blazing fireball technique. Kakashi stunned (because usually Genins [beginners] can't do that jutsu due to the amount of chakra that is needed) Sasuke fires...but Kakashi is nowhere to be seen. He looks around and ask where is he above behind. Kakashi: BENEATH YOU!!! Kakashi grabs one of Sasuke's' legs and then pulls him underground only leaving his head above the ground, this is called suicidal beheading. Kakashi: how is it? Can't move right? It's obvious that Sasuke is just a little more than perturbed. Elsewhere Naruto is about to dig into the bento boxes when Kakashi appears above him in disbelief and anger and is about to punish him while Naruto tries to explain that it is just a joke. Sasuke is still trapped underground when who should walk by...Sakura. Once again she screams and yells; now it's a severed head. By this time Sasuke has freed himself and is sitting over Sakura to make sure she is alright. She jumps straight up and begins to hug him since he is alright, Sasuke just keeps telling her not to get to close while she has her arms wrapped tightly around him and he is struggling to keep her at calm, even going as far as to grab her by the head. Sasuke then rises and tells Sakura he is going back to try again for the bell. They talk for awhile and the timer rings; it's noon and none of them have a bell. They must go back to the rock to meet with Kakashi. They get back to find Naruto now tied to a post with two bento boxes sitting in front of him, they sit on either side of them while Kakashi comes and gives them the news. Kakashi begins to tell them that none of them need to return to the academy, Sakura asks if it was okay since all she did was faint( inner Sakura...Love prevails over all, Damn IT!!!)Sakura is jumping with Joy, Naruto is squirming with joy, and Sasuke just grins. Kakashi: Yeah you three should quit being ninjas. Silence and frowns come over them. Iruka and Hokage have finished their tea and Iruka is amazed that Kakashi never passed a single student. He is worried about Naruto as well as his team. Hokage does not even know if they should be ninjas. He does agree with the decisions Kakashi made in the past with his previous students. Naruto is in a rage, as much as he can do even though he is still tied to a post. Sasuke charges at Kakashi after he tells them they have no reason and don't deserve to be ninjas; of course we know that Sasuke wants to become a ninja for revenge for the death of his clan. Kakashi grabs Sasuke and sits on him and pins him on the ground with one arm around his back and one foot on Sasuke's head. STUCK!!! Kakashi continues to make his point with Sasuke now as a prime example. Sakura goes on to threaten Kakashi if he hurts Sasuke. Kakashi is beyond being amused at this point. He is very angry. He goes on to explain that the whole point of the exercise was ....TEAMWORK!!! Sakura being the brains of the group wonders why then were there only two bells....Kakashi tells her that someone would need to betray their team or lose in order for two to pass. He then goes on to tell them that if they had even worked together, two of them might have had a chance to pass but now none do. While telling them how important teamwork is, he then pulls out a weapon and places it on Sasuke's throat, he then tells Sakura to kill Naruto or Sasuke will die. It was just an example of what can happen if each person on a team goes for the goal alone. He then walks to a stone carved with numerous names on it; I want my name to be on that stone, yells Naruto before Kakashi tells him that only heroes who died in battle along with some of his friends can be on this monument. The mood turns somber. He then walks away while telling them that only those who want a second chance at the bells should eat lunch and for everyone else to go home. He made a point to also tell them not to feed Naruto...because he tried to eat both lunches earlier. Mind you that Kakashi had told them not to eat breakfast in the previous episode and Sakura did not eat dinner either because of her ....DIET!!! So all are famished by their point. If anyone feeds Naruto they fail. Kakashi: My word is law, Got it? Hokage is telling Iruka not to hold any grudges against Kakashi no matter what he decides, Iruka then agrees. Sasuke and Sakura are now eating, poor Naruto is claiming to be fine, but once they here his stomach growl and see the pitiful face, Sasuke raises his box to Naruto, Sakura is furious, but he tells her that Naruto will be useless unless he eats something. Sakura then offers her food as well. Naruto is moved by the offering especially coming from his crush [Sakura] and then tells her that he can't eat it. She yells at him why and then she sees that he is still tied to the post. Angry, disgusted, embarrassed, and ready to go to war. Sakura tells Naruto that she will only do this once. Naruto smiling says he understands, Sasuke is telling them to hurry before Kakashi returns. Sakura gives him a nice big rice ball. Naruto contently eats it with a large smile on his face. A strong wind comes out of nowhere and the sky darkens. YOU THREE!!!! It's Kakashi who sees them, he performs symbols with his hands and the ground shakes!!!!!! Any Last words!!!! Naruto speaks up as well as Sasuke, Sakura: We three are one!!!Kakashi comes towards them and yells....YOU PASS!!!!!You three are the first, you did what was best for them team rather than listen to me. Kakashi: In the world of ninjas those who break the rules are scum, those who don't help their friends are even worse scum.moreless
  • So-So

    9.3
    This episode kind of copied other series. They just pretend to fail the main characters and they actually pass, or something like that. I was pretty surprised when they actually passed, though. I would have given this episode a perfect score, but it didn't have as much fighting in it, and they weren't actually on a mission, so it wasn't as good as the way later episodes, and I'm making a really long run-on sentence, and I think I should end it, because I'm not really writing that much, and this is kind of annoying, isn't it? Well, I can't stop it, so I think I'm going to click submit. OK? OK.moreless
  • They always do that!

    7.7
    They always do that. They make it seem like a decision that is that important is definite but like many animes they give them an "opportunity" but if you pay attention you see that it's not really an opportunity but a definite decision that they will pass. Like most animes the main characters always succed at the very end well most of them do lol. So pretty much there was a loop-hole in the situation that by anime-law had to be there. Finnaly I liked the way they made an excuse for them to take the pitiful excuse for a test cause it wasn't so corny.moreless
  • Team 7

    8.0
    Naruto, sakura, and sasuke have to pass this test to become official genin. They have to get the two bells, before noon, that are hanging off of Kakashi's pants to pass. It was cool to watch because we learn what team 7 is capable of. We also see what level Sakura, Sasuke, and Naruto are on. Kakashi had a nice way of messing with them. Sakura proved useless, Naruto proved he is very stupid, and Sasuke proved that he's too full of himself. The lesson here kids, Team 7 has some majoir problems to work through. The real lesson is that teamwork is the best. I liked it, as we get to see what Kakashi's character was like.moreless
