Japanese title: Sakura no namida (サクラの涙)
Although he has changed almost completely into his animal form and has lost all awareness, Naruto refuses to give up the idea of bringing Sasuke home. Moved by Naruto's condition, Sakura ignores Yamato's restraints and runs to Naruto and is injured by him. Yamato is finally able to use his Wood-Style ninjutsu to halt the Nine-Tailed Fox’s rampage. Meanwhile, Orochimaru reaches his limit and tries to leave the battleground, but is confronted by Sai, who has brought him a message from Danzo.
