Knowing that Itachi and Kisame are after Naruto, Kakashi recalls his last conversation with Jiraiya. Jiraiya informs Kakashi that he will now keep an eye on Naruto, fearing that an organization called Akatsuki may one day come after him because of the Nine-Tail sealed inside him. Knowing that Itachi is part of Akatsuki, Kakashi asks if this is right. Enraged that Kakashi knows about their organization, Itachi instructs Kisame to capture Kakashi. Just as Kisame begins to move to attack, Gai appears and pushes him away. Seeing that the situation is getting too complicated, Itachi leaves with Kisame. Meanwhile, Jiraiya tries to convince Naruto to help him find Tsunade. Naruto shows no interest until he hears that he can learn a technique stronger than Sasuke’s Chidori, at which point he willingly agrees to accompany Jiraiya.
