The destruction of the Hidden Leaf Village has been averted, but at great cost. While the village mourns, a new menace arrives in the form of Sasuke’s brother, Itachi Uchiha—but why is he after Naruto? Then Jiraiya whisks Naruto away on a training journey to find the legendary kunoichi Tsunade, who’s been selected to become the new Hokage. But they’d better hurry, because Orochimaru is looking for her as well!

This particular volume covers many different arcs because so many different things are happening at the same time.
The first arc is the introduction of Jiraiya and his training Naruto in summoning a toad. I will admit, as wonderful as Jiraiya's character is, this part is a little slow at first but it does pick up speed towards the end.
The next arc is the Third Part of the Chunin Exams: The Final Rounds. We have Naruto vs. Neji, and Shikamaru vs. Temari, two excellent matches. And then the beginning of the long waited Sasuke vs. Gaara match up...
...which carries over into the next arc where Orochimaru and the Sand and Sound Ninja attack the Leaf Village. This is where everything breaks off into many different stories. We have the Orochimaru fighting The Third Hokage , Sasuke chasing after Gaara, Kankuro and Temari, Naruto & co. chasing after them as well, and the beginning of the Naruto vs. Gaara fight. Strangely enough, this volume does not cover the entire arc. This volume ends with Orochimaru and the Third Hokage still struggling against each other, and Naruto still taking on Gaara and the Shukaku sand spirit. I found it strange that this arc was not compiled together in its entirety in this box set, but it is a long arc so I guess it couldn't be helped.
Again, this is a good buy for the person that is just looking to buy the episodes for cheap. I highly recommend this set if you don't already have the dvds.
This is a "bare bones" release; there are no booklets or inserts included. When it comes to the actual discs in this set, they are the exact same discs from Naruto Uncut Box Set 7 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 8.
The first bonus feature on the third disc is labeled as "Production Art." This consists of ten pages of model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. The next feature is a preview for Naruto Uncut Box Set 8. This is followed by "From Sketch to Screen Episode 85," which is eight pages of storyboards. For each storyboard, you can choose to see the clip that the storyboard is for. In the extras, you can also see the English credits. A link in the extras menu labeled as "Trailers" takes you to four trailers. Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled as "Manga," which takes you to advertisements for Shonen Jump Magazine, and advertisements for the Naruto and other Shonen Jump manga titles. The final selection in the menu is labeled as "Sneak Peek"; it turns out that this selection takes you to a trailer promoting Viz Media's release of the Buso Renkin anime series.
The first bonus feature on the sixth disc is "Production Art," which includes ten more pages of model sketches of some of the Naruto characters. The next feature is a preview for Naruto Uncut Box Set 9. After that is "From Sketch to Screen Episode 93." Like the "From Sketch to Screen" on the third disc, this feature has eight pages of storyboards, and you can choose to see the clip that the storyboard is for. You can also see the English credits on this disc. A link in the extras menu labeled as "Trailers" takes you to a set of six trailers. Next in the extras menu is a selection labeled as "Manga," which takes you to advertisements for Shonen Jump Magazine, the Naruto manga, and other Shonen Jump manga titles.
If you enjoy Naruto and haven't already bought the Naruto Uncut sets, this would be an economical way to get the episodes on DVD. You get double the amount of content of the original sets, but pay about the same amount as you would have for those original sets. However, if you do purchase this set, just be warned that the only effort Viz Media went to when combining Naruto Uncut Box Set 7 and Naruto Uncut Box Set 8 was to make changes to the labels on the physical discs included in the set.
I wrote this review after watching a copy of this DVD box set that I purchased.
