Naruto tries to attack Itachi, but the latter easily stops him. Itachi asks why Naruto is so interested in his brother Sasuke. Naruto replies that he is a bigger brother to Sasuke than Itachi was. Naruto attacks again, but finds himself placed in Itachi’s genjutsu, who repeats that he only wants to talk. In Leaf, over drinks with Tsunade at Bar Sake, Jiraiya informs her that he has figured out the location of the Akatsuki leader, the Village of Hidden Rain. Hidden Rain is consumed by civil war, which is what the leader of this criminal organization is covering up and hiding his actions. Tsunade regrets that being the Hokage she cannot go with him on this investigation, just as, over time, their childhood friend Orochimaru has died. Meanwhile, Itachi leaves Naruto and confronts Sasuke.
