Secret Songs of the Ninja
- Getting to know Keiji's vision problems: first he goes to shake hands with Naruto and misses. Then he goes to shake hands with Sakura and gropes her. Her response is predictable.
- Sakura can be surprisingly snarky at times:Sakura: <making note of the hundreds of shuriken Keiji is wearing on his body> Really?
- Keiji demonstrates his Deathwind Shuriken by splitting one of the logs used for targets in half. Naruto and Sakura are impressed, until Keiji admits that he was aiming for the one a dozen feet to the left.
- Naruto in classic fashion is so Oblivious to Love that when Hinata asks if she can keep his forehead protector that he loaned her and give him hers instead, he comes to the obvious conclusion... that she wants it because it used to be Iruka's.
- When Sakura offhandedly mentions the Aburame clan and the swarms of insects they host inside their bodies, Naruto finds himself somewhat disturbed by the information.Naruto: You mean for all those years in class, I was sitting next to a guy full of bugs and no-one told me?!
- Akashi Tsuneo's failed attempt at defiance:Tsuneo: Besides, you may not think much of me, but Im a ninja of Iwagakure too. So go ahead and do your worst! There's nothing you can do to make me talk!
Sakura: I'll cut off your balls.
Tsuneo: I'LL TALK!
- It turns out that Keiji of all people is a secret fan of the 'Icha-Icha' series.
- Naruto manages to defeat Tsunade by hitting her with an incomplete rasengan, destroying her obi and forcing her to use her right hand to hold her top shut, forfeiting the fight according to the prearranged terms. Nearly every man and boy present groans in disappointment when she does so instead of allowing her boobs to bounce out.
Melody of the Shinobi
- During Naruto's first shamisen lesson, his Grumpy Old Man teacher assumes Naruto doesn't even know how to tune his instrument. Naruto angrily insists that of course he does, so his teacher instructs him to tune it to honchoushinote so they can get started.Naruto stared at his teacher like he'd just ordered Naruto to build him a new house.
