Naruto is troubled by Gamakichi’s words about having to die, but Fukasaku assures him that it was a terrible comparison. In order to become one with nature and thus master senjutsu, Naruto must learn to be completely still and absorb nature’s energy. A special oil can help him do this, but it comes with the risk of turning first into a toad and then into a statue if he’s not careful. Naruto intends to go through with it, aiming to become as cool as Jiraiya. Meanwhile, Taka fights Killer B, the jinchuuriki of Eight Tails. When Suigetsu and Jugo show that they are no match for him, Sasuke intervenes.
