Gamabunta shows up and prevents Naruto from crashing, but he is also very unhappy that the boy ended up on his head. He suspects Jiraiya of this, but Naruto reports that he was the one who was able to summon the head of the toad clan. Gamabunta refuses to believe that the child was able to summon him and bursts into laughter, to which Naruto demands that he recognize him as his master. This insolence makes Gamabunta threaten the boy with reprisal, tempering Naruto’s ardor. While Gamabunta was checking the entries in the draft contract, convinced of the veracity of Naruto’s words, the boy collapsed without strength. Gamabunta carries him to the hospital and disappears.
When Naruto regains consciousness, he sees Shikamaru. He informs him that Naruto has been out for three days and offers to eat the fruit that was prepared for Chouji together, but he can’t eat anything yet. At this time Gaara walks into Rock Lee’s room, intending to kill him. However, Naruto and Shikamaru manage to stop him.
