Points of Interest

  • This episode gives the first glimpse of Sasori's real body as a child through Chiyo's flash back.
  • In this episode, the Riinegan in Pain's eyes is improperly colored. They should be the silver-blue through the whole eye.
  • This is the first episode of the Naruto Shippuden series that Kakuzu speaks.
  • Most of the characters from the Hidden Leaf Village only appear in this episode from the flashback of Naruto comparing his life to Gaara's. Where Temari and Kankuro were during Gaara's childhood has never been explained.
  • Chiyo only learns this episode that Naruto is the Jinchuriki of the Nine-Tailed Fox, and she admits that she was the one who sealed the One-Tailed demon in Gaara.
  • The Sealing Jutsu: Nine Phantom Dragons took three days and three nights to complete.
  • In Japanese culture, it's considered a bad omen for a personal object to suddenly break.
  • This episode shows Rock Lee walking on water. This should be impossible since Lee is suppose to be incapable of molding chakra and this is why he can't use ninjutsu.
  • The kanji on the seal outside the Akatsuki hideout is 禁 (kin), which is a prefix that means "forbidden".

Hidden Leaf Omake:

  • In the omake after the credits, Kakashi talks to the audience about the variety of tools and equipment used by ninja, and Might Guy tries to add his green leotard to the list.
