On the front lines, the Shinobi of Stone have almost defeated Konoha. Despite this, when Konoha’s Yellow Flash appears, the surviving Konoha ninja are confident that the battle is about to turn in their favor. Meanwhile, Obito approaches the place where Rin is being held captive. He is found by Taiseki, but before he can be killed, he is rescued by Kakashi. Taiseki survives and tries to attack Obito again, but Kakashi saves him once more, though his left eye is damaged. Obito awakens his Sharingan and kills Taiseki to protect Kakashi.
