Naruto soon discovers that popping the balloon is easier if he uses both of his hands, and progresses to the second step. The second step is fairly similar to the first, only this time Naruto must pop a rubber ball, something that will require much more power. After Naruto struggles with this step, Jiraiya helps him by drawing a leaf on his palm to give him a point to concentrate his efforts on. With some additional practice, Naruto is able to complete this stage as well. Elsewhere, Tsunade, an avid and extremely unlucky gambler, hits a winning streak, leading her to believe something bad is about to happen. As she tries to leave the city, she is met by Orochimaru and Kabuto.
