"Bringing Back Reality" (取り戻した現実, Torimodoshita Genjitsu) is episode 214 of the original Naruto anime.


Naruto and Menma are sent on a mission with Neji and Tenten. Tsunade begins believing that Menma is an Otogakure ninja due to his skills, and Neji begins suspecting the same thing when Menma moves even faster than he does. The group enters a town that has been largely destroyed by bandits, and Menma convinces Naruto's unit to help rebuild it to guard against another potential attack.


  • When Neji is talking to the girl and her child about the influence of Orochimaru, his forehead protector symbol is an actual leaf instead of the Konoha symbol.
