    Believe it or not, Japan considers this to be the end of Naruto season 1. Episodes 36-83 are considered to be "Naruto 2nd Stage" for whatever reason, though this is not reflected in the opening or ending themes, just the Japanese DVD releases.

    IMO, this episode begins the weakest part of the Forest of Death section.

    Yeah, if memory serves correctly, the plot of this one could have been told in four minutes.

    And Naruto goes Ripped Shirt Kirk on us.

    And Sakura can't even start a fire without anyone to help her. Yet another strike.

    Here's our fantasy action heroes! Sitting around and eating...

    Naruto comes up some clever stuff sometimes.

    Grumbly Sakura sounds like Talho there.

    Are ninjas know for the forging skills?

    Kinda like the opening to Star Trek V. Though I'd take Naruto over that any day.

    They turned into mushrooms?! Oh, no they didn't.

    So, apparently .... you die instantly if you open up the scroll?

    JYB is still alive? Or is that another character?

    Well they did encourage cheating in the first test, so it is worth a shot. Naruto is such a role model for the kids.

    And we're back...

    What the heck? Were did that ninja show up from?!

    Oh, I get it - the scrolls are protected by Ninja ICE*

    * ICE = Intrusions Countermeasures Electronics

    Sasuke: Shut Up, Sakura.

    So these Collectors are these shadowy, glowing eyed, clearly evil bunch of folks going by these images.

    Behold, Minas Morgul!

    I think they just walked into a game Centipede here.

    Those "collectors" seriously look too old to be partaking in the chuunin exams.

    And one of them looks like Zabuza. Not really a spoiler, but

    Don't pull a Black Star, Naruto (even though, technically, you're the original).

    And Naruto gets stuck in vines. Our Hero, everyone.

    Oh snap! New guy just got arrowed!

    You know what would be funny? That Naruto and Sakura really opened the scroll, and this whole episode was just a dream.

    The name of the game is subterfuge.

    Uh oh. Either the Ewoks have militarized themselves, or...

    As the army of Sam Fishers come out of the literal wood work.

    Naruto... unless you're Megas XLR, 40 to 4 odds against you are not good.

    Those mushrooms used to scare the hell out of me, for some reason. O_O
