Determined to prove that he is better than Naruto and Sakura, Sasuke attacks Kakashi. Unlike those two, Kakashi has difficulty against Sasuke, causing him to close the Icha Icha book he was reading in order to dodge his attacks. When Sasuke uses the Element of Fire: Great Fireball Technique on him, Kakashi has to stop toying with him and immobilizing him. Meanwhile, Naruto frees himself from Kakashi’s trap and tries to steal lunch. However, Kakashi catches him red-handed doing so. Kakashi gathers all of Team 7 together and notes that there is no need for them to return to the Academy, but advises them to give up their ninja careers altogether.
