After two and a half years of training, Naruto returns to the Hidden Leaf. Kakashi greets him shortly after he appears and hands him the book Tactics Icha Icha as a gift. This is the only book Jiraiya has had time to write in the last few years. Jiraiya turns Naruto over to Kakashi for further training, while he himself takes a vacation dedicated to gathering information about Akatsuki. Upon his return, Naruto encounters Sakura and Konohamaru. Konohamaru demonstrates his Seduction Technique, which Naruto was not impressed with, claiming he had invented an even more perverted technique. Sakura displays the monstrous strength gained from her training with Tsunade and annoyedly stabs Naruto. Naruto and Sakura form Team 7, led by Kakashi, who suggests they take a bell test, exactly the same one they took when the team was first formed years earlier.
