Kankurō attacks Shino with Crow, but Shino avoids the attack thanks to his kikaichū. Crow follows up with a poisonous gas attack. Shino just barely evades it, but in doing so walks into another attack. Meanwhile, Sarutobi continues to struggle to remove Orochimaru's soul. At the same time his likeness on the Hokage Monument cracks, worrying the ninja who see it. Shino is able to swarm Crow with kikaichū but Kankurō still manages to get off another attack. The attack falls short, Shino having finally managed to guide his kikaichū to Kankurō's location. The kikaichū consume Kankurō's chakra and Shino passes out from the gas he earlier inhaled, trusting the rest of the battle to Sasuke.
