As the Fourth Great Ninja War quickly approaches, Sunagakure hosts a special Chunin exam to strengthen the troops of the Allied Shinobi Forces. Among the participants are Konohamaru Sarutobi, an ambitious rookie, and Naruto Uzumaki, who has become a renowned ninja. Despite the significant disparity in skill, Konohamaru is excited at the prospect of proving himself in a competition against Naruto—the one person he both admires and sees as his rival.

It was pretty fun to watch but it's a shame naruto didn't get to fight someone else. Also I think the rule at the end sucks.

Naruto: Honoo no Chuunin Shiken! Naruto vs. Konohamaru!! is a short film/special that accompanies the fifth Naruto Shippuden movie. Unlike most of the specials, who always focus on silly comedy, Naruto vs. Konohamaru is about a serious issue: the Chunin exams.

Located just before the beginning of the Fourth Shinobi World War, the chunin exams are taking place in the hidden village of the sand. While Konohamaru and his team have lot of trouble with the second part of the test (survival in the desert), Naruto Uzumaki, Konoha hero and series protagonist, don't even sweat. So, with only ten people classified, read more

I felt I had to write this review (albeit years late and out of no where) for 2 reasons

We all had those speculatory question, why Naruto never re-applied for the Shunin exam again, how would it go if he did, well, pretty much none of us saw him and Konohamaru participating in the same year coming.
Konohamaru has always looked up to Naruto, but here, he is forced to face him in a man vs. man fight in front of all of the village, we all know how it SHOULD go, but oh boy did the directors of this short movie have another plan for it.

It's been a long while since I saw Naruto, looking at this is both eye-opening and turning off. The read more
