-----------DISC 3: Special Features-------------
-Storyboard Booklet over episode 58
-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. Then the remaining 3 episodes cover the matches of the other finalist, leading up to Sasuke's match with Garra.
It leaves you wishing you had the next box--unless you've already seen the episodes somewhere else. But you'll hvae to wait for box 6 to come out, unless you want to read about hem or watch them over the internet. Or, if it is playing on tv currently wherever you live, as it is where I live-though it is already way past this-, then you can watch what happens next on tv. There are plenty of places to watch for free, or read episode summaries, or to read the manga on which the show is based.
If you would like recommendations on where to go, leave a comment and I'll try to make sure I check it regularly to reply back.
As I always say, there are lots of episodes. Currently out--in Japan anyways, though I've been watching with subs over the internet--there are 256 episodes, and the manga is a good ways past that. I'm pretty sure the episodes will definitely hit the 300 mark and keep going from there, so we are looking at a LOT of boxed sets. There was an average of 13 episodes to a box, though the last two have had 14. But that is over 20 boxes, either way. So I highly recommend you buy them when they are on sale, and not at full price. Because you're looking at dishing out a lot of cash. Over time, yes. But still a lot."
Naruto VS Neji... PLUS Shikamaru's breakthrough!
B. S. Windon | Gold Coast, QLD, Aus | 03/06/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)
"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!"
Naruto third stage!
Sandie Grilli Beauvais | montreal, Qc | 01/08/2008

"OH MAN!! This is another box set that i loooove watching again and all over again! PERVY SAGE IS TOO FUNNY!!! and it feels good to have that little glance of humour after such a long adventure with the second stage of the chunin exam! But much more is coming up ahead of them as they need to finish the third stage and that wont be that easy to accomplish! Naruto is just amazing! Full of power and strength!
Here s what box set 5 says in the back as a resume:
"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-TALE FOX SPIRIT WITHIN HIM. CAN NARUTO TURN THIS DANGEROUS FORCE INTO A STRENGTH AND OVERCOME THE ODDS AGAINST 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!"
There is 3 discs with about 4 episodes each. and here they are:
53.Long time no see: Jirraya returns
54.The summoning jutsu: wisdom of the toad sage!
55.A feeling of yearning, a flower full of hope
56.Live or die: risk it all to win it all
57.He flies! jumps! he lurks! chief toad appears!
58.Hospital besieged: the evil hand revealed!
59.The final rounds: rush to the battle arena
60.Byakugan vs. shadow clone jutsu
61.Ultimate defense:zero blind spot
62.A failure true power
63.Hit it or quit it: the final rounds get complicated
64.Zero motivation: the guy with cloud envy!
65.Dancing leaf, squirming sand
Like i said in my other reviews of box set 1-2-3-4
buy them two at the times because if you get excited just like me every time there is a fight or good action, you might notice that they always cut it at the end of the third disc for you to buy the next season!!! BOX SET 6 IS OUT!!! GET IT!!!
Hope the review helped you!!! If You like Japanese animations, YOU WILL LOVE THIS ONE!! ship"

"Naruto is awsome, I can't wait for Volume 6! The only problem I had wasn't with the product but with the packaging and shipping, it was poorly packaged which led to the product box to be excessively creased on the sides, not damaging the discs but ruining the collectible box itself."
