|Naruto - OAV Special 4
"Clash at Last! Jounin VS Genin!! No Discrimination, Great Melee Grand Exhibition Opening!!"
26 Minute Original Animated Video
What is it? This short 26 minute special was released on DVD alongside Narultimate Hero 3. The short story outlines the beginning of the storymode found in the game, and includes hints on finding the crystals which are hidden in the game.
What-s the story? Tsunade directs a big contest to be held where the goal is to get a crystal from another ninja. Seemingly every Konoha ninja is involved (including dead ones) and the Sand siblings and Baki participate as well. Naruto walks throughout the village and sees various Genin vs. Chuunin/Jounin fights going on. Naruto always manages to miss out and be oblivious to people hiding their crystals, accidentally dropping them, them getting knocked loose, etc. We get glimpses at various match-ups: Gaara vs. Izumo, Lee vs. Gai, Sakura vs. Ino, Neji vs. Asuma, Kankurou vs. Shino.
At the very end Naruto decides to team up with Sasuke to try and get the crystal from Kakashi. Naruto forms Rasengan and Sasuke forms Chidori, they race towards Kakashi but he easily grabs their arms and stops the strikes from connecting. He casually tosses them away and manages to take Naruto-s crystal at the same time.
My rating? The story serves its purpose, providing some interesting match-ups not previously seen in the story, such as Sasuke and Naruto vs. Kakashi, Gaara vs. Izumo, Lee vs. Gai, etc. They give a glimpse at fights which would really never emerge in the main storyline. As such the story should be viewed more for it-s interesting match-ups than good story. Also taking into account the story is largely rushed and unfinished, it may not prove a satisfying watch to some viewers. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 6.
Continuity problems? This story really has no chance of being in continuity. This is because Rasengan and Chidori both being used at the same time, and with the rampant resurrection of dead characters as easter eggs in the background. For this reason it should not be taken too seriously, and should be viewed similarly to the Movie One Konoha Sports Festival short.
