Episode 71 - Absolutely Incomparable! A Hokage-Level Battle Episode Summary

Episode Summary for Episode 71 - Absolutely Incomparable! A Hokage-Level Battle. Written by Kawaii Kenni
After Sakura, Naruto and Pakkun have a brief joke about Pakkun and Sakura sharing the same shampoo (Floral Green), we are greeted by Temari, Kankuro and Gaara being confronted by Sasuke. Temari attempts to hold Sasuke off, but after a few Uchiha Katon Jutsus, Temari is beaten. However, Kankuro, with the unconscious Gaara, has left.

Meanwhile, back on the Chuunin fight stadium roof, Orochimaru has revealed, after taking off his face like a plastic mask, that he has a young girl's body and face. Sarutobi questions Orochimaru to if he completed THAT Kinjutsu, to which Orochimaru agrees and laughs maniacally. Enma has a flashback of how Sarutobi let Orochimaru go after telling of his plans to stay immortal and learn all Jutsus. "The man who blended blue and yellow together called the new colour green. I plan to be like that man by blending my Jutsus."

Orochimaru taunts Sarutobi on aging again, and explains that he'll take a new body after killing him. It is Sasuke that he's after. He changes his face back to the Orochimaru face. "You like this face better, right?"

After being trapped in a Moku no Jutsu from the First Hokage body, Sarutobi laments on how he let Orochimaru go. However, Enma has protected him, and snaps Sarutobi back into action.

Orochimaru sends the two Hokages after Sarutobi, who uses Kage Bunshin no Jutsu. The main Sarutobi uses the hand seal sequence of Snake, Boar, Ram, Rabbit, Dog, Rat, Bird, Horse, Snake, before clapping his hands together. Blue pieces of Chakra surround him. He calls the shape formed the "Shiki Kami", or "Death God". Orochimaru is sure it's too late to do anything. Konoha will perish!

Sarutobi claims that Konoha is his home, and he will protect it. The Nidaime Hokage, or the Second, uses a Genjutsu, Kokuangyou no Jutsu, or the Absolute Darkness Technique, making everything dark for Sarutobi. Orochimaru taunts Sarutobi on how Konoha is merely an organisation, while hits from the dark strike.

To a musical montage, showing how everyone in Konoha is connected to one another in some way, Sarutobi explains that everyone in Konoha is his family and he will protect all of them.

Before the theme song of "ALIVE" comes in at the end, Sarutobi claims that he has the will of Konoha, the First and Second Hokages. He's the Third Hokage! He will use a technique that even Orochimaru doesn't know. "Kurae! Fuuinjutsu! Shiki Fuujin!" or "Take this! Sealing Technique! Death Seal!" He shouts at, clapping his hands, before we are greeted with "Dareda-atte" from the ending theme song.
