With the final round of the Chunin Exam only a month away, Naruto receives some special training from Jiraiya, one of the three legendary Sannin, to summon and master the chakra of the Nine-Tailed Fox Spirit within him. Can Naruto turn this dangerous force into a strength and overcome the odds, against the formidable Neji?! Meanwhile, a dark plan that affects the fate of the Hidden Leaf Village begins to reveal itself as the much-anticipated match between Sasuke and Gaara draws near!

The Chunin Exams enter their final round as the popular fantasy-adventure Naruto continues. The arrival of Jiraiya, the lecherous arch-ninja known as The Sage of Toad-Mountain interrupts Naruto's intensive training regimen. Jiraiya wants to ogle the local girls, but Naruto wheedles and fusses until the Sage agrees to teach him the powerful jutsu used to summon a monster toad. His first efforts are unimpressive: All he can conjure is a tadpole. But Jiraiya's instruction enables Naruto to tap into the extraordinary spiritual power of the Nine-Tailed Fox Demon imprisoned within his body. Drawing on this energy, Naruto defeats Neiji, avenging his cruel treatment of the gentle Hinata. But more serious matters overshadow Naruto's match: Sasuke vanishes from the hospital and everyone fears Orochimaru may be involved. Or is Sasuke's disappearance linked to a plot by the leaders of the Sand and Wind Villages to break the peace treaty among ninja and destroy the Hidden Leaf Village? At the center of this intrigue is the highly anticipated face-off between Sasuke and Gaara, the murderous psychotic who fights with enchanted sand. Sasuke arrives just as the match is slated to begin, and the collection ends on a cliff-hanger. The filmmakers also provide plenty of slapstick, ramen dinners, jutsu, and cartoony tantrums that Naruto fans expect. (Rated T+ Older Teen, suitable for ages 12 and older: violence, toilet humor, brief nudity, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

The difference between Naruto Uncut Boxed Set, Volume 5 (Special Edition) and Naruto Uncut Boxed Set, Volume 5 is a Gamabunta figurine in the special edition. Other than that, they are the same.

This is a big volume in the Naruto series... Starting off with a few comedic episodes as Naruto trains for the finals of the chunin exams and his big fight against the genius Neji Hyuga. Featuring one of the funniest characters in the show, the famous pervy sage AKA Jiraiya. This is possibly the biggest pervert in anime history... you can't help but laugh at him and his antics.

Though after the training is up the series does a 180 as the finals begin... and we're treated with a brilliantly animated fight between Neji and Naruto. Although Naruto is the lead character and is constantly being beaten on by Neji... not once do you despise the young genius as he tells his sad story while pounding on the nine-tailed fox child. With antagonists you can't help but love, this is where the series truly shines through with it's awesome character development.

Then, after this breathtakingly exciting fight we're treated to something special. Shikamaru's true breakout episode. He finally gains purpose and something that makes him unique in the series. Not since Rock Lee fighting his heart out against Gaara has a secondary character been so compelling. Shikamaru will steal your imagainations... and if you're anything like my girlfriend, your hearts too.

Though, throughout the entire episode the main event is constantly teased... Gaara VS Sasuke. You'd think they were maineventing Wrestlemania how they talk it up. And let me tell you... it works! I can't wait for volume 6 to see this clash of power.

Naruto just gets better and better.
If you still haven't caught on, go back, catch up, and enjoy!

I found it weird when i saw that America is selling the Naruto seasons in two separate volumes. Thats so cheap. Why not sell the complete seasons in one 6 disc set. For anyone who wasn't aware vols 1&2 are season 1, vols 3&4 are season 2 and vols 5&6 are season 3. Also I was hoping to buy from the U.S. to jump ahead of where I'm at just having watched season two on TV and i have to say I'm disappointed that i have to pay just for 13 episodes. Thats like nothing in these long running Anime series'. Id have to get the next two vols and then wait because They're releasing the DVDs way too slowly. This is an outrage that not even Naruto believes it.

Now for some of the PROS that come with Naruto. If you have the money then season three is the season to own on DVD. It's way better than all other seasons in the Naruto arch. It has the most plot and is pivotal in the entire story. It does end with a cliff hanger though. If you weren't a fan of the first season but thought the second season was getting better this season should blow you away. You will want to keep watching all the way until the filler episodes in season 6. I'm now (due to awesome websites) up to Naruto Shippuden and can't wait to see if these stories are better than the third season.

-----------DISC 3: Special Features-------------
-Storyboard Booklet over episode 58
-Production Art
-English Credits
-Volume 6 Preview
-Advertisements for some other shows
-Option for Japanese with English subtitles, or the option to watch in English

Alright that's what is on all the discs. As I generally do, I liked the graphics on the fold open container for the discs-nice pictures. As I already said, you can watch in English or Japanese with subtitles.

This picks up right where the last box left off, starting with Naruto beginning to train withthe Toad Sage Jiraiya. By episode 57, his training with the Sage is done--for now--and it spends an episode at the hospital with the previously injured ninja--such as Lee--. Then episode 59 has Naruto rushing to get to the arena on time because the final rounds are about to start and his match against Neji is first. Needless to say-of course he gets there-and the next 3 episodes cover his fight with Neji-I won't tell you who wins, just watch and find out.

I havent watched the content of this set yet, as I watch Naruto as it is broadcast in Japan. If it is where I think it is though, this is the part where the action REALLY heats up, and takes Naruto to the next level. It's presents the entire world of Naruto, not just the 4 man team the series starts with. And it only gets bigger from there.

The Uncut Box Set once again does a good job of giving the hardcore fan all the content they could hope for along with the original Japanese audio and dialog. A very nice and solid box that fits with the rest of the series, and another amazing storyboard booklet.
