Since they need to catch Sasuke at any cost, Neji volunteers to fight Kidomaru. The remaining members of Sasuke’s Returning Team resume their pursuit of the Sound Four. Kidomaru tries to stop them, but Neji neutralizes his web. Concluding that Neji is the strongest member of the team, Kidomaru tries various attacks to figure out Neji’s strengths and weaknesses. Believing that Neji can break the web only by touching it with his hands, Kidomaru ties his hands. But Neji frees himself from the web and prepares to attack Kidomaru.
