    This episode marks the end of the Introduction Arc. Next week, we begin the famous Land of Waves arc. But there's still some business to attend to before we get to that famed arc. After all, Naruto, Sasuke, and Sakura have to pass first. And , , , Kakashi, as you can see, is not going to make it easy.

    Finally got done with work early enough to catch this episode! :)

    At last, some real ninja action going on! And Sakura has long hair, nice. And did Sauske actually have another emotion than Emo?

    Oh Naruto. Always thinking with your stomach.

    Ah, our first glimpse of......

    In the manga, he wasn't that blunt, but still pretty much meant the same thing. He only said

    Sasuke: I'm an avenger!

    Oh Sasuke, you wish you were half as cool as Thor.

    So Kakashi is going to drop his whole group? Man, the series went by fast. See ya everyone! :p

    Edit: I love the speed lines just for Naruto screaming in frustration.

    So far Sakura has been proven totally useless. Does that ever change?

    Sasuke preferred to go it alone, without the help of the other two.

    Sakura was concerned over Sasuke's well-being but didn't give a fig about Naruto.

    And Naruto...is just a buffoon.

    With ninja like these, who needs pirates?

    He pretty much named the same fault for both Naruto and Sasuke.

    Kakashi is the coolest character in this series.

    Uhhh...you're kind of going against the whole teamwork thing by leaving Naruto there...

    All this talk of teamwork and they just leave Naruto there to die. End of series.

    Ah, the power of teamwork. Now we just need a Motivational Poster, and the episode will be all set.

    I actually liked this episode, even going In Media Res. The action was nice, there was a lot of emotions going through all three characters, and we got some good character development.

    It seems interesting that they took some time to note the monument, that all the ninja listed there were killed in action. It not only highlights how dangerous their job is going to be (so they should stop being so childish and get serious), but also introduces the theme of sacrifice. It links back to Teamwork, in which the one must give up the self to serve the whole. Hopefully the theme of Self-sacrifice will continue.

    Ah, the good ol' days, back when I actually liked Kakashi and Sasuke.

    Sakura is more-or-less the same though.

    It was great to see the scenes where Sakura made a fool of herself (Naruto as well). Sasuke may be self-centered, but at least early on, he isn't a fool, and his "ugh" reactions to Sakura were good.

    I would have said Anko, but Kakashi is a close second.

    Sakura: "Oh no! Sasuke is in trouble! I need to do something!" *faints*
    She does that at least twice in this episode. At least Naruto and Sasuke confronted Kakashi to try to get the bells. What does Sakura do? Nothing.

    Naruto "believe it" counter: This episode: 4
    Total: 24
