Naruto is joined on a rescue mission by Shikamaru, Choji, Kiba, and Neji to save Sasuke who has been sealed in a drum-like coffin. Their pursuit is halted by the most fearsome of the Sound ninja with an uncompromising loyalty to Orochimaru and a hair-raising Kekkai Genkai!
But the Leaf Village has sent another able bodied ninja to assist in the fight, the newly recovered Rock Lee! Three familiar ninja from the Sand Village also come to the rescue and together they employ fantastic jutsu, especially when Gaara battles Kimimaro, who creates weapons from his own bones!
While the Leaf genin continue their battles against the Sound, Naruto finally catches up to Sasuke at the Final Valley, the legendary site at the border of the Land of Fire. There, Sasuke and Naruto must face each … in battle!
- Cat. No.
