Naruto and his comrades find themselves held up by Tobi, whose strange jutsu is more than just a simple genjutsu. To counter the jutsu, the team use Shino’s Parasitic Insects, but its wide-range attack fails to reach the target. Zetsu suddenly arrives at the scene and reports that the battle between Sasuke and Itachi has ended. Tobi and Zetsu then disappear as if to mock the shocked Leaf ninja. Using Hinata’s Byakugan, Naruto and the others pinpoint the battle’s location and hurry toward Sasuke.
