As Tsunade eats to regain her energy after coming out of a coma, Kakashi thanked her for waking up in time to stop him from becoming Hokage; a position he claimed he wasn't cut out for. He briefed her on the outbreak of war and everything else that happened while she was in her coma. After lamenting that the Uchiha's Curse of Hatred still plagued them even now. She later convenes a war council to discuss how the village will proceed. After being informed by Sakura that Tsunade had woken up, Naruto celebrates Tsunade's recovery at Ramen Ichiraku when he is summoned to Mount Myōboku. Per Jiraiya's instructions, Gerotora stores himself in Naruto effectively giving him the key to the Nine-Tails' seal. Elsewhere, Kabuto, having finally formed a symbiosis with Orochimaru's remains, confronts Tobi. He reincarnates all the members of Akatsuki as incentive for Tobi to accept an alliance.
