    This is the start of one of the more famous mini-arcs in the series, the Chuunin Exams preliminaries. All of the ninja who qualified for the third round now need to fight each other one-on-one. The winners move on to the actual third round. The losers will have to wait until next time to be considered for chuunin.

    Last time? The truth of the life-or-death competition is bragging rights. Not too surprising.

    We have Ninja Sign!

    Oh, don't forget, Friendship = Fighting!

    Before they can go Street Fighting, they must have... Preliminary Exams!

    Wow, even the anime thought this arc was taking too long, and decided to speed things up.

    You call adding a round speeding things up? I'll never understand anime logic.

    "Sudden Death"? Poor choice of words, dude.

    Dude, Sauske, I'd listen to the Medic.

    "Pathetic!"

    It's incredible that everyone's still standing around with all of this awkwardness.

    I'm gonna skip this episode.

    Kikiyo Pass? Are we going to see Inuyasha anytime soon?

    So... I'm guessing Kabuto is evil?

    You would think they would figure out something is fishy about Kabuto. These people are as inept as the Soul Society.

    And we're back.

    Seesh, Sauske. Sakura is on the verge of tears, and you're just being a jerk.

    Sasuke: "What I am is an Avenger!"

    Pff, you wish you were as cool as Thor.

    And more talking.

    And can you guess what the survey says?

    Finally, they get to a fight. That took forever.

    And in true girly fashion, the mistreatment makes her want him more. Haha.

    Oh they do. There just isn't enough evidence yet to even imply for the superiors what exactly he's up to.

    Sasuke: "You're one of the ones I want to fight the most."

    Aaaaaaand, that's when Naruto's heart skipped a beat out of affection.

    Seriously though, this is important to note since I think this is the first time one of his peers admitted he's worth paying attention to. Some of his peers thought to themselves that he's getting better while one secretly admires him.. But not actually admitted to him out loud.

    So the names are in Japanese this time? I wish they at least had subtitles.

    I agree - any surprise that reveal had just went over the heads of those unable to read Japanese.

    They don't want to keep spectators waiting, and yet the TV audience has all the time in the world.

    "All I can do is watch."
    All you've BEEN doing is mostly watching.

    All because of that hickey on his neck.

    Not the face!

    Is that Blum also voicing the masked ninja too?
