Episode 6 - Important Mission! Heading to the Country of the Wave Episode Summary

Episode Summary for Episode 6 - Important Mission! Heading to the Country of the Wave. Written by Sakura
The show opens this time with Sasuke, Sakura, and Naruto checking in with Kakashi via headphones. The three act with military skill and study the situation, their actions are fluid as they work as a team and eventually come to their target. It turns out to be a lost cat, which in turn starts attacking Naruto while the others watch and confirm the success of finding the lost cat with Kakashi. Naruto then yells at Kakashi because all they have been doing are boring missions, and he wants more exiting ones. With the mission a success, the Hokage reads them their next missions, which consist of babysitting, grocery shopping at another town, and helping dig up potatoes. Naruto promptly refuses in grand Japanese style with a big X style arm motion, complaining that he wants to do more exciting missions. Both Sasuke and Sakura agree in their minds. Iruka then gets annoyed and reprimands Naruto for his outbursts. Naruto, still complaining, takes a well placed knock on the head from Kakashi to shut him up.

The Hokage then proceeds to lecture Naruto on what the job of a ninja really is and that jobs range from babysitting to assassinations. He then explains the ranks of the jobs they're in."A" type missions being the most difficult and dangerous, they are left to the Jounin or elite class of ninjas, like the Hokage and Kakashi. "B" type missions are in the mid range and are preformed by the Chuunin or commoner class of ninjas like Iruka. "C" type missions can be done by both Chuunin and Genin or cadets. "D" type missions are the easiest and there for best suited for genin class ninjas. Each class brings a certain cost to the client and is there for revenue for the village". Having finished his rant, Naruto and the others are paying no attention to the Hokage at all and Naruto is talking about what ramen he is going to eat tonight.

The hokage yells, yet undaunted by the verbal thrashing he just received, Naruto stands his ground, saying that he is no longer the child prankster he once was, turning his back holding his breath like a kid. Understanding how he feels, the Hokage decides to give the team a C rank mission. The mission is to escort a certain person. The hokage then tells the person to come in. The door slides open to reveal an old man drinking sake out of the bottle, he make several comments about there age and size and really pisses Naruto off. He then introduces himself as Tazuna, an expert bridge builder and states that the job is to get him safely home and protect him till the bridge he is building is done.

As the next scene opens we see the flash of a figure jump through the trees and run. Then it pans to the large gates outside of the hidden leaf village and the five figures walking out. Taking the lead, Naruto proclaims his excitement, having never been out of the village and Tazuna makes a comment about Naruto's ability. Making naruto mad, he reprimands the old man and states his dream of one day becoming hokage. The scene flashes to once again show a figure running through the forest. Tazuna responds to Naruto's claim with more snide comments and sends naruto into a fit. The five continue on unaware of the eyes that are upon them, as they walk, Sakura starts asking questions about the country where they are heading to. Kakashi fills them all in about the 5 major countries and the hidden ninja villages within each country, and puts to rest Sakura's fears of them having to fight with other ninjas on this mission.

As our friends walk along the scenic path, they pass a small puddle that catches Kakashi's eye for a second. Once past the puddle, a head emerges from it, then a body. One figure is thrown and a chain, trailing from one arm, is wrapped around Kakashi. Taken by surprise, Kakashi body is torn to bloody shreds by the barbed chain that the two attacking ninjas have attached to thier armguards. Shocked by the sudden attack and death of Kakashi, Sakura and Naruto scream out. The two ninjas surround Naruto while he is petrified with fear and go in for the kill, but Sasuke thinking fast, tethers there chain to a tree with a well placed shuriken and kunai combo. He then proceeds to land on there arms and kick both of them, they quickly detach the chain and split up, one attacking Naruto and the other going after Tazuna. Sakura, shaken by all the sudden activity, stands her ground as one of the ninjas bares down on the two.

Sasuke rushes in front and readies for the attack, when out of nowhere the ninja get attacked by Kakashi. Now holding both ninjas, having used the replacement technique to evade any injury. He apologizes to Naruto for not being fast enough to stop him from getting hurt and compliments Sasuke and Sakura on a job well done. Naruto is mad at the fact that he could do nothing while Sasuke did all the work. Sasuke then asks Naruto if he is alright and calls him ”Mr. Scaredy Cat”. Naruto yells at him only to be stopped by Kakashi with the news that the ninjas claws were poisoned. Naruto's wound needs to be leeched or Naruto will die, Kakashi also tells Tazuna he wishes to talk with him.

With the two ninjas securely tied to a tree, Kakashi tells them how he knew they were being followed and why he let the ninjas attack, Kakashi wanted to see who their target was. He then reprimands Tazuna because he lied in the job description just because he could not afford to state what the real problem was. Faced with the new information and an injured Naruto, the group decides to go back to the village. Naruto pulls out a kunai and thrusts it into his hand, releasing a gush of blood. Naruto then states that he will no longer be a burden to the group and that the mission is still on. Kakashi congratulates Naruto on his bravery but then tells him that he will die of blood loss if he does not take care of the wound. Naruto flails around and shows Kakashi his hand, but because of the nine tails demon sealed inside of naruto it is already healed. They patch things up and move on

The final scenes in this episode are in a large dark tree house where we find a vary short man yelling at some ninjas for failing at their job. Then one of the ninjas sitting down with a wrapped mouth and face pulls out a huge decapitating sword. Stating that he will get the job done. We then find out that the two ninjas that were just beaten were called the Demon Brothers. The name of the ninja in the tree house is Momochi Zabuza from the Hidden Mist Village.

Episode Summary for Episode 6 - Important Mission! Heading to the Country of the Wave. Written by Josephine
So team seven has just passed Kakashi's test and are now real ninjas!! You may think this means life or death missions, close shaves and excitement, right? Well, their first mission involves finding a LOST PET CAT! Naruto isn't impressed, and complains to the Hokage about their boring assignments. He explains that they are new ninjas, and are not ready for harder tasks. But, because Naruto whined loud enough, he decides to let them try something harder. Namely, escorting a bridge builder to his own country to complete his latest project. The bridge builder's name is Tazuna, and he doesn't have much confidence in Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura and Kakashi's abilities, and is rather rude to them (he even calls Naruto a midget, causing Naruto to get pissed off. Kakashi has to hold him back, explaining that they must not kill the man they are assigned to protect.). Anyway, you know what this means. Road trip!! And so, Naruto and co. are off to the land of waves. On the road, Sakura questions Kakashi about the possibility that they may run into foreign ninjas, and he explains that in the land of waves, there are no ninjas, so they don't have to worry. He goes on to teach them about the different countries, and the ninjas that reside there. Suddenly, two ninjas with claws and chains that resemble chainsaws emerge from a puddle! They take the bladed chains and wrap them aroud Kakashi,TEARING HIM APART! They then go after Naruto and Tazuna. Naruto gets scratched on the hand by one of their claws. Meanwhile, Sakura attempts to block Tazuna from the other ninja's attack. Sasuke manages to keep one of the ninjas from killing Naruto, and then goes to save Sakura. Then WHAM! the ninjas are stopped in thier tracks by MASTER KAKASHI! He had used the art of substitution to switch his body with blocks of wood when the ninjas attacked him! He explains that he could have stopped the ninjas at any time, but he wanted to see who their target was. He turns to Naruto and tells him to keep still, because the cut he recieved was poisoned. The wound will need to be opened further to wash the poison away. It turns out that Tazuna was the target of the attack. He admits that a man named Gatou wants to kill him to keep him from building his latest bridge. Gatou is in charge of all the ships that get through to the land of waves, and the construction of the bridge would mean he would not recieve as much money. People would use the bridge instead of his ridiculously expensive shipping. So he hired mist ninjas to kill him. Kakashi debates about whether to help Tazuna out, or go back to the village, because this mission is too hard for new ninjas to take on, and Naruto needs medical attention. Naruto feels guilty, and cuts his hand himself, swearing that he will protect Tazuna. Very dramatic, but Kakashi explains to Naruto that the cut he gave himself could make him bleed to death. Naruto freaks out, but as Kakashi inspects his hand, the wound is almost healed! So the agree to go to the land of waves. We also see a scene in which a creepy ninja with a huge blade (his name is Zabuza, as we will later see) talks with Gatou, agreeing to take Tazuna out personally.
