"Homecoming " (帰郷, Kikyō) is episode 1 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.

Summary

Team Ebisu is scampering out of a forest in Konoha, chasing a cat. Konohamaru runs into Teuchi, the owner of Ramen Ichiraku. Naruto arrives back in Konoha with Jiraiya, and finds out that it hasn't changed much since he left for training with Jiraiya, except that Tsunade's face has now been added to the Hokage monument. Sakura and the others soon spot him, and while Sakura notes Naruto's physical change, Naruto blatantly tells her that she hasn't changed one bit. Konohamaru meets up with them, performing the Sexy Technique in front of all of them, but Naruto reveals his better version, causing Sakura to realise that Naruto hasn't changed a bit. Naruto later catches up with Tsunade, who wishes to see how much he's learned by putting him up against a certain opponent.

Trivia

  • It was first aired along with episode 2 as an hour-long premiere special.
  • The first half of the episode shows Naruto's first post-timeskip reunion with Sasuke, something that does not actually occur until Naruto: Shippūden episode 51.
  • Konohamaru and his team's capture of Tora is identical to a mission Team 7 went on in the first Naruto anime.
  • The way Naruto and Jiraiya come back to Konoha after the time skip in Naruto Shippūden: Ultimate Ninja 4 was more similar to that of the manga than the anime. The first person he saw was Kakashi, instead of Team Ebisu and Sakura.
