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.
It was first aired along with episode 2 as an hour-long premiere special.
