"A Shirker's Call to Action: A Layabout No More!" (逃げ腰NO.1 めんどくせーがやろっきゃねえ!!, Nigegoshi Nanbaa Wan Mendokuse~ga Yarukkyanee!!) is episode 70 of the original Naruto anime.
Kakashi orders Sakura to dispel the genjutsu on Naruto and Shikamaru, who is revealed had already done so. He tells them that they have an A-rank mission: to catch up to Sasuke. Pakkun notices that there are nine Oto-nin following them. To distract the opponent, Pakkun tells them to step on their footprints, so that it looked like that their prints had stopped to buy them some time. Knowing an ambush is necessary, Shikamaru volunteers to be the decoy, since his shadow imitation jutsu is designed to restrain people, and Naruto, Sakura and Pakkun continues the mission. Shikamaru's technique stopped working due to his limited chakra from the previous fight and he was clearly outnumbered. However, Asuma arrives to defeat all the enemies without even breaking a sweat. Temari, Kankurō, and Gaara notice that there are more people chasing them. Meanwhile, the fight between the Third Hokage, and the reincarnatedFirst and Second Hokage, controlled by Orochimaru is about to start.
