Points of Interest

  • The mark on the book Tsunade is working from while tending to Choji is the symbol of the Nara Clan.
  • Choji Akimichi has no spoken lines in this episode.
  • The kanji on the back of the nurse and doctor uniforms is 医(i), which means medicine; and is the first kanji in the word 医者(isha), which means doctor.
  • The episode is the last canon appearance of Sasuke Uchiha until the first episode of Naruto Shippuden, and that scene is out of the main manga's continuity.
  • In the canon-manga story, Sakura leaves the room after Naruto's declared promise saying that next time they'll do it together. The manga skipped three months for Naruto's recovery, then leaves with Jiraiya.
  • The name of the giant toad that Jiraiya summons is unknown.
  • In this episode, the Riinegan in Pain's eyes is improperly colored. They should be the silver-blue through the whole eye.
  • Though all the members of the Akatsuki are shown this episode, not all are voiced.
  • In the English dub of Naruto produced by VIZ Media, many of the voices used for the Akatsuki members only appear in this episode and are later replaced. Pain (Deva Path) is voiced by Dave Wittenberg. Deidara Zetsu is voice by two actors, Michael Sorich (Black Side) Brian Beacock (White Side).
