In exchange for healing his arms, Orochimaru offers to bring back to life Tsunade's younger brother Nawaki and Dan, her sweetheart. Though, Jiraiya appears with another tempting offer. The job of being the Hokage, but Naruto has something to say about that.
"GO!!!" by FLOW
Jiraiya and Naruto discover the castle they were searching for has been destroyed. The panicking crowd running tells them it was caused by a giant snake. Believing it to be the same one that attacked the Hidden Leaf Village, they rush to find Tsunade.
Elsewhere, Orochimaru has tempted Tsunade with reviving her dead brother and her lover. Shizune strongly objects and implores Tsunade to reject such a proposal, but she doesn't respond. Shizune wants to attack and kill both Orochimaru and Kabuto. Orochimaru lifts one of his injured hands and draws blood. Tsunade goes into a panic at the sight of blood and reveals he knows about her intense fear of blood. They leave telling Tsunade she has one week to consider the offer, but will need two human sacrifices to perform the forbidden jutsu.
Later, Jiraiya and Naruto arrive but Tsunade and Shizune have already long since left. They are at a pub and Tsunade is getting drunk off sake. Shizune worrying that Tsunade may entertain the offer Orochimaru made and the price it would mean to the Hidden Leaf Village. By nightfall, they are still looking and go into a pub for food and information. When he glances across the pub, Jiraiya spots Tsunade and she notices him. Looking at her large full breasts, Naruto can't believe she is in her 50s.
As Naruto eats and Jiraiya drinks with Tsunade, she makes mention of seeing a lot of old friends today. Jiraiya asks if it was Orochimaru and what he wanted. Tsunade quickly shoots Shizune a look to not say anything. She pulls out some playing cards. As he shuffles the deck, he comes right out to offer her the position of the Fifth Hokage. Everyone is shocked at this offer, Naruto more so as he starts to choke. Tsunade quickly refuses but Jiraiya laughs it off as what she always told him in the past when he would ask her out. Naruto goes into wild panic of confusion. He thought they were just coming to get her to heal Sasuke and the others. Now, he's learning she's been selected for Hokage and that Orochimaru was the killer of the killer of the Third Hokage. Not only that, but he was once a member of the Hidden Leaf Village and the Three Legendary Shinobi(Densetsu no Sannin). Jiraiya explains to Naruto that Tsunade is the grand daughter of the First Hokage and an expert in medical jutsu. Only she can be Hokage. As Tsunade is wondering who this boy is, Jiraiya introduces him as Naruto Uzumaki.
As Tsunade slowly unfolds her own hand of cards, she comments how Jiraiya's latest pupil isn't as bright or cute as his last one. He replies that not all can be as gifted as the Fourth Hokage. Tsunade mocks the idea of Hokage. How each have just gone to the their death and says the position is for fools. At that, Naruto jumps over the table and lunges at Tsunade, only stopped by Jiraiya grabbing the back of his shirt. Naruto shouts that he'll attack anyone who talks bad of the Third or Fourth Hokage with everything he has. Tsunade puts one foot on the table and gets into Naruto's face. She suggests they take this outside.
In the street outside, Tsunade declares she will only use one finger and the fight will end in under a minute. Naruto rushes in throwing shuriken that miss. He lunges with his kunai, but she uses her index finger to get the kunai away from him and knocks his forehead protector off his head and into the hair. Before he can even fall, she flicks Naruto in the forehead and he flies backward twenty feet. Still in shock from such strength, his kunai and forehead protector land in front of him.
Tsunade ask why Naruto gets so angry about her speaking ill of the Hokage. Naruto tells her that it's because being Hokage is his dream. Tsunade is shocked by this declaration, and she sees both her dead brother and lover in Naruto. Upset by these memories, she glances away. When Naruto notices this opening, he attempts the jutsu Jiraiya has been teaching him and runs in to strike. She sees Naruto rushing and she recognizes the jutsu.
