After an exhausting and very difficult fight Gaara finally is able to defeat Seimei using all of his will power and chakra to release an ultimate attack, but keeping Shukaku under his control, because he could trust on his friends and stood up for them by his own, thanks to what he had learned from Naruto in their past. After the fight, he and Naurto, who was also in very bad conditions, are taken to the Kohona hospital. As Naruto wakes up he is surprised by maste Jiraiya, who finally decides to take him for training. Also Ino goes after Sakura to ask her to talk for her to master Tsunade, because she wants to become a medical ninja, just like Sakura, after being unable to help on their previous mission and feeling useless. At the end of the episode Naruto and master Jiraiya leave the village to become even stronger than before, and everybody else agrees to keep training for the next time they get to see each other again.
