Review of Naruto Shippuden 258: Chuunin exam is under way and Naruto is getting surprissingly strong.
Sasuke advised Naruto that if he never wants to owe anything to Sasuke, he better catch up to him. Naruto promised to surpass Sasuke in strength and skill. It's Chuunin exam time and Sasuke is surprised just how powerful Naruto got in such a short time. The title of next Naruto Shippuden 258 is "The Rivals". Let's see how quickly Naruto picks things up and catches up to Sasuke. Hop in our Naruto Forum for discussions.
In the restricted grounds chuunin exam takes place, Heaven Scroll and the Earth Scroll are the prizes. There are 78 contestants in 26 teams. Each team has one of the two scrolls. The objective is to make it back to the tower as team with both the scrolls. Naruto is determined to pay Sasuke back.
[GoogleAd]Sasuke gets attacked by a giant snake. Things go from bad to worse when Naruto shows up wanting to help and of course to even the score with Sasuke. Sasuke realized Naruto needs to be protected so he decided to give away his scroll. Naruto went berserk when he found out. He took this Sasuke guy for an impostor and punched him. Sasuke would never give up a scroll, would he?
Naruto attacked the Snake guy but as he got closer, Summoning Jutsu was signed and Naruto was thrown about. He kept coming back though and did stop the snake just in front of Sasuke. "Hey, are you hurt, scaredy cat?" he asked. Sasuke didn't want to risk his life for a scroll, he did after all have more noble things in mind... namely killing his older brother, but then he realized that if he cannot defeat this snake guy, he'd stand no chance with Itachi Uchiha.
Next attack came from many illusions created by Genjutsu. Naruto could not attack them, but clones were attacking for real. Kabuto got slashed. The enemy must be hiding close by using his Genjutsu Shinobi to attack from save distance. Naruto attacked with his Shadow Clones and was effective. He even created clone jutsus of Sakura, Sasuke and Kabuto to protect the, while the real ones went into hiding. Naruto seemed tired but would not let Sasuke take over. He just needed Sasuke to see that he can match up to him.
The Forest of Death was conquered. Third Day of Chuunin exam is being explained by Lord hokage. Sakura asked Sasuke to stop fighting as she was afraid for him. Sasuke reminded her that he is an avenger and this exam is very important to him, because he is fighting the strongest. Then he turned to Naruto and told him that he also wants to fight him.
Sasuke asks Kakashi to make him stronger. Kakashi liked Sasuke's determination. Kakashi explained the Change in Chakra Nature and that superior shinobi know how to change more than two chakra natures. Sasuke now posseses fire nature. Kakashi has Lightning style and he could teach that to Sasuke. He called it one-of-a-kind jutsu of Kakashi the Copy Ninja.
Sasuke made a late appearance with Kakashi at the Chuunin exam. He had missed Naruto's fight with Orochimaru and other opponents. Naruto must have gotten much stronger, or adopted a new jutsu to win these fights. The title of next Naruto episode of Naruto Shippuden 259 is "Rift". Watch it with us right here at Tailedfox this Thursday April 19th.
