Talk about marathon.. hehehe.. just finish ep 48 and at the end of the episode... Naruto with his usual never say die determination gave another speech to Sai, the new member of Team 7, which is also a member of ANBU Roots.
"Back in the day, I couldn't stand Sasuke.
Even though neither of us had families
he was an elite and I was last in the class.
But, it really was a lot of fun when we were together.
He acknowledged me more than anyone else ever did.
Sasuke is my friend.
Someone who I was finally able to form a bond with,
I don't care who I have to fight!
If he rips my arms off, I'll kick him to death.
If he rips my legs off, I'll bite him to death!
If he rips my heads off, I'll stare him to death!
And if he gouges out my eyes,
I'll curse him from beyond the grave!
Even if I'm torn to shredds,
I'm taking Sasuke back from Orochimaru!"
Anyway, it's better for you to watch this episode, to see the dramatic effect of Naruto's speech.. hehehe...!
