The Way to Capture…!!

Kidōmaru's webbing sticks Neji to the ground, leaving him unable to perform the Eight Trigrams Palms Revolving Heaven. Neji opts to block the incoming attacks by hand, but is unable to block all of them. Kidōmaru realises that this means Neji's Byakugan has a blindspot, so he concentrates his efforts on pinpointing it. After determining that Neji cannot see things beyond fifty metres and cannot see anything directed at a particular point behind his neck, Kidōmaru believes he has "won the game". He activates level two of his cursed seal and creates a bow and arrow to put an end to his "worthy opponent".
- When this chapter was originally published in Weekly Shonen Jump, the two-page spread that ended the chapter depicted Kidōmaru in a fairly typical archery stance. Masashi Kishimoto's twin brother, Seishi Kishimoto, pestered him that it was boring. Because of this he drew a completely new spread for the volume release, wherein Kidōmaru aims his bow while hanging from a tree. The original page was included as an extra in the volume release.
