Sai visits the library to learn about how to make friends. After reading material about nicknames, Sai tries to put the concept into practice by calling Sakura “scary. He and Naruto, who tries to keep his distance from Sakura, get beaten up by her anger. Trinity meets Kakashi at the hospital and tells him about his encounter with Sasuke. Because Sasuke has become so much stronger than they are, Naruto worries that they won’t be able to get him back again next time. Kakashi responds to this concern by saying that Naruto just needs to get stronger, and suggests a method of training that only Naruto can endure.
