Points of Interest

  • This episode marks the first time Sakura is made to realizes that Naruto is in love with her.
  • This episode is one of the few times Sakura has been shown wearing a black-skirt in place of her black-shorts with her pink utility-skirt as she talks to Sai at the beginning of this episode. The shirt she is wearing is similar in design to her normal top, but has short-sleeves.
  • The Dojutsu that Danzo uses is a rare one that doesn't require line of sight. This is a special technique of the ninja Shisui Uchiha, who Danzo took the Sharingan Eye from and replaced it with his own right eye.
  • Ao believes that it was Sasuke Uchiha to defeated Zabuza Momochi and Haku. In reality. Kakashi was the one who killed Haku and disabled Zubaza's arms. Zabuza died of the wounds he was later inflicted by the mass of henchmen hired by Gato. Sasuke was though to be dead during the majority of this battle, and it was Naruto who initially defeated Haku.
