The battle between Naruto and Sasuke continues. Sasuke remembers the fateful day in which his clan was killed. He remembers why Itachi spared his life, and why Itachi did what he did. Now, in order to gain the same power as his brother, he must kill his closest friend…Naruto!
After the battle, Jiraiya, concerned about Naruto and Sakura’s wellbeing and that they’ll act recklessly, persuades Tsunade to send them on an official mission to the Land of Rice Paddies, hoping to discover Orochimaru’s hideout. With Jiraiya at their side, can they fail to bring Sasuke back? Then, an escape from a maximum security prison brings Naruto a blast from the past! Mizuki, the teacher who long ago betrayed the Leaf, is on the loose, and Iruka once again joins Naruto in pursuit of the renegade ninja!
