Neji and Tenten were shown to be practising, and Shino as well. Naruto seemed as though he didn't want to sleep the whole night.
Naruto meets Hinata where Team 7 had their bell test. She concluded that he may defeat Neji. He also said that he liked people like Hinata and also invited her to watch his fight against Neji. He heard some fireworks so he ran away because he would be late to the matches so he hurriedly ran so he could make it in time. On his way, he saw Konohamaru who told Naruto that he knows the shortcut to the stadium. But Konohamaru just brought him into trouble.
Most of the events from this episode do not occur in the manga.
The entrance that Naruto made was ironically related to the time in Pamplona, Spain. This is when people race in to the bullfight on narrow streets and try their best to get into the stadium.
