appearance and staring directly at the Sound Trio…

Power" – Back from the brink
of death, Sasuke totally
outclasses the Sound Trio and
even goes as far as wrenching

Gaara with a rain of needles,
Gaara promises to make the
sky rain blood...

Chapter 59: "Tragedy of


Sand" – With his “Desert
Funeral” move, Gaara instantly
crushes the Rain ninjas to
death. Even though he hasn’t

agrees to simply proceed with
the test. The team hidden and
watching them, particularly
Akamaru, are chilled to the
bone by him...

him opening it. But the four
are being watched by an
earlier adversary.

Should Take" – Kabuto

them away. After the team
encounter deja-vu, Kabuto
realises they are in a trap, as
enemies appear from all sides.

– Introduces the Hidden Rain
trio of Oboro, Mubi and Kagari.

Face" – Despite Oboro’s Mist
Clones, Naruto manages to
defeat the opposing team and
claim their scroll, allowing
them to pass. Kabuto rejoins

spy unknown to anyone other
than themselves. Meanwhile,

that risks opening the scrolls
to solve...
