Tsunade stops Team 10 from leaving, telling them that, despite their desire to avenge Asuma, they are ill-suited for a rematch with Akatsuki. Kakashi appears and volunteers to help, saying he can give no additional help with Naruto's training, so Tsunade allows them to go. While Akatsuki is finishing the sealing of the Three-Tails, Shikamaru integrates Kakashi into their plan. Tsunade also considers sending backup for Kakashi and the others, but will only send Team 7 if Naruto can complete his training within twenty-four hours.
