Points of Interest

  • This episode we hear Sakura call Tsunade "師匠 (ししょう, shishou)". When translated from Japanese, it means "master", and it used in place of Sensei. Shishou is normally used for teacher of special skills such as the martial arts.
  • This episode Team 7 is renamed to Team Kakashi. their status has changed, No longer are they student and teacher, but now equal ninja. Though, Naruto is still on a genin level.
  • In several closeups of Gaara's eyes, his Ai 愛 tattoo is black instead of red.
  • Kakashi talks about a new jutsu he developed. This is most likely the Mangekyo Sharingan that he will use in a battle in the near future.

Hidden Leaf Omake:

  • After the credits, a chibi Sakura hosts a special omake. In it she talks about her past with Team 7 during their first test under Kakashi and his obsession with his favorite book series.
