Deprived of eternal sleep. Loneliness.

Rating: 7.5/10

Team Kakashi heads out to complete the Fire Temple mission. Along the way, Naruto is trying out his new wind ability which confuses the rest of the teammates. They thinks that he is scared to do the mission due to the previous night discussion about dead people and graves. Sai, who is still an amateur in making friends, always make the wrong decisions towards his relationship with his pals.

The team is supposed to meet with the people from the Fire Temple. However, they have not arrived after a long time. Yamato is worried and wonders if they have gone to the wrong rendezvous point. Thus, the team splits into two. Yamato and Sakura will search for the Fire Temple people while Sai and Naruto stay behind in case the people actually come. Unfortunately, an embarrassing incident happen between Sai and Naruto that makes both of them separated. After being chased by a wild boar, Naruto finds a hidden grave. He also finds a guy named Sora entering the grave. Sora is skilled at wind element and both of them duel each other.

The battle is stopped by Yamato and the temple people. Apparently, Naruto and Sora are supposed to be allies in completing the mission. After some introduction, they all head to the Fire Temple where Naruto feels a déjà vu about being there in his dream.

While in the temple, the monk leader explains everything about the problem and the loyal bodyguards of Fire Country’s feudal lord. Team Kakashi also has a chance to view the monk training too. Naruto, realizing that Sora is not serious in practicing, provokes him to a fight again. During the fight, Naruto realizes the other monks are starring at Sora as if they are despised at him. The battle ends and Sora flees to a mountain. Naruto visits him and has a private chat with him. As they return to the temple, another tomb is being robbed. The episodes end with the temple robbers surfing away on a wooden coffin.

Wind

Kakashi sensei is back on his feet now and he is set to start Naruto’s special training. He knows that at the current state Naruto is now, it is quite difficult for him to save Sasuke. Therefore, Naruto must have this arduous and crash course on creating his own jutsu. Naruto is so anxious about it and cannot wait to start. Kakashi mentions that the training is very special because only the person who has a lot of chakra can do this. Thanks to the Kyuubi inside Naruto, Naruto has satisfied the requirement. Even Kakashi is not able to undergo this training. Besides Kakashi, Yamato also helps Naruto in his training.

In this episode, we learn that Naruto’s element is wind. The method to find out is by using a special kind of paper that can detect the slightest chakra in a person. To me, it is something like a litmus paper. So, a person can be a fire, water, earth, lightning or wind type. A ninja can have two types of element. For example, Yamato is a water and earth type. With his skills, he can actually combine these elements to form a new element which is the wood type. It is very interesting to know, yes. Besides that, there is also a mention of the dark and light type. But, Kakashi decides to save the explanation of those elements later in the series.

Title. Nightmare

Rating: 8.5/10

Another hour special of Naruto! This time, the 2 in 1 episode is awesome. The first half is about a summary of the Rescue Sasuke Arc and it is also the ending episode of the arc. A lot of flashbacks of the arc commented by Jiraya. Despite failing in the mission, team Kakashi goes back to their village to give full report to Tsunade. After listening to the report, Tsunade quickly orders all the confidential information of the Leaf Village to be reassessed. Danzou is endangering the village security by revealing classified information of its agents. Meanwhilem, Sai asks permission from Danzou to let him stay with team Kakashi. Danzou reluctantly agrees and leaves him a warning of the possible outcome for having a close connections with others.

The part two is the beginning of the new arc. The show also has a new opening and ending clips. A lot of characters are returning for this arc. Kakashi is still stuck in the hospital and he has big plans for Naruto. With Naturo’s current skill, he believes that Naruto can never save Sasuke. Therefore, Naruto will probably get a new skill of ninja technique in the next episode. Sai also has funny scenes with the other comrades as he tries to befriend with many of the people he meet in the village. Unfortunately, he is quite ignorant in such matter. He even goes to the library to learn about methods of making friends. Boy, he needs to learn a lot of life. Nevertheless, I really like the Sai’s scenes the most in this 1 hour special. So, this is a pretty good episode, IMO.

Reunion. The Power of Uchiha

Rating: 7.5/10

How lucky! Once again we are served with another 1 hour special of Naruto. This 1 hour long show is mainly about the reunion between old friends Naruto, Sakura and Sasuke. Basically, the main character for this episode is Sasuke. Of course, there are a pinch of Naruto, Sakura and Sai here and there. As usual, when friends are reunited after a long time, there will definitely be loads and loads of flashbacks. So, if you have recently started watching Naruto for the first time, you will learn the relationships that are created between the original members of team Kakashi. If you have been following Naruto since the very first episode, you will get bored. It is so because the scenes that are used in the episode are being overused.

Besides that, after watching this episode, I realize that the first part, “Reunion”, cannot stand on its own as an episode. It is pretty slow. There is not much action in it. The first part is basically about Sai’s resolution to help Naruto bring back Sasuke to Konoha. However, team Kakashi, after reading his Bingo book, thinks that he is going to kill Sasuke for the sake of their village – which can be a good thing.

Now, the second part of the episode, “The Power of Uchiha”, is about the awesomeness of Sasuke. He practically owes everyone in their encounters easily. Team Kakashi cannot even lay a finger on him (maybe because they are trying their best not to hurt him). I am pretty sure that Naruto will want to bring back Sasuke in one piece too. So no point going all out on him. Funny thing happen in this episode, Naruto is supposed to come and save Sasuke but instead, Sasuke is the one who saves Naruto.

The mission continues for team Kakashi. The base infiltration is in progress but so far no Sasuke found. Apparently, Naruto is still hurt from using his Kyuubi. Because of that, he easily get exhausted running around the whole base. Sai realizes that after Naruto falls down. Therefore, he suggests that both of them take a rest for a while.

While resting, Sai tells Naruto about his brother. So this is an opportunity for revealing the character ‘s background. This time, it is Sai’s turn to have a flash back. We got to see Sai’s brother and their relationship in the past. Well, Naruto is thankful that Sai is being more open to him and share his stories. Suddenly, Orochimaru appears and attacks them. Naruto tells Sai to go find Sasuke while Naruto stay behind and fight with the slithering ninja. So this is the round two fight between them in this season. Never fear though, Sakura and Yamato come to the rescue just in time.

Sai is alone now and Orochimaru changes his plan from dueling with the three to hunt down Sai. With Sai’s rats, he manages to find Sasuke. There is a twist here. Sai still has a different agenda. Yamato finds another book in Sai’s bag that is left behind. To our surprise, it is a bingo book and Sasuke is also Sai’s target.
