Points of Interest
- This episode begins with the last few minutes of the previous episode.
- This episode has a major continuity error in it. In the flashback of Sakura's training under Tsunade, he has her long hair. Sakura hasn't had her hair as long as this since the second part of the Chunin Exams that occurred long before Tsunade came to the village to be the Hokage. This error was also seen in the manga version.
- Much of the Team 9 fighting their doubles was not seen in the original manga. In fact, Tenten's battles have never been seen in the Naruto manga.
- As Neji is using his Rotation technique. His reflection uses his as well, and they move into each other. Naji has never shown to be able to move this technique in any direction once it starts. It's a stationary skill where he spins in place.
- The speed of sound varies in this episode since Team 9 hear the collapse of the Akatsuki cave at drastically different times. Neji is also seeing the past through his Byakugan since he hears the collapse, but then sees it with his Byakugan afterward.
Hidden Leaf Omake:
- In the omake after the credits, Neji Hyuga and Tenten talk about the specialized jutsu from the Nara, Yamanaka, and Akimichi Families.
- This is one of the few after episode omakes that are not humorous but mainly informative.
