Volume Twenty-Four Manga Summary
Naruto: VOLUME 24
Title: Pinchi•Pinchi•Pinchi!! ~ Pinch•Pinch•Pinch!!


Hyuuga Hinata

Chapter 209: "Reinforcements on the Scene!!" – Shikamaru continues to struggle to successfully complete the Kage Shibari and choke Tayuya. The Sound Ninja refuses to give in; cursing at Shikamaru she extends an overpowering amount of chakra to push Shikamaru's shadow back down her body. Back in the field, Sasuke's canister continues to steam. Naruto's Kage Bunshin clones continue their assault on Kimimaro and he dispatches them with ease. Soon only Naruto himself is left. The two men stand apart and the canister finally bursts! Rising from the debris is a longhaired Sasuke. Naruto asks Sasuke to return but he merely laughs and then sprints away. As Naruto grows angry Kimimaro quickly moves to strike Naruto in his unprotected back. Before his bone sword can connect he is kicked away by a sudden attack! Standing before Naruto to help is none other than Leaf's azure beast Rock Lee!...


Yamanaka Ino

Chapter 210: "Lee's Secret!!" – Naruto tells Lee to be careful but Lee tells him to move on after Sasuke. Naruto made a promise to Sakura with his nice guy pose, so Lee does the same telling Naruto he will handle Kimimaro. Back in Konoha Genma and Raidou are recovering, Tsunade states sending Genin was unavoidable but she has taken steps to lend them support. Suddenly Guy bursts in, he rushed back to hear of Lee's surgery. Tsunade says it was a success and Guy is relieved. An attendant bursts in to tell them Lee is gone. They rush back to Lee's room to see he had left during the night. Tsunade notices the absent-minded Lee picked up her sake bottle by mistake instead of his medicine. This worries Guy... Back at the fight Lee attempts to land another hit on Kimimaro, he pauses for a moment to tell his opponent he needs to take his medicine. He withdraws the bottle and takes a bitter gulp. Guy tells Tsunade that the last time Lee accidentally consumed liqour he got drunk and destroyed a building. Other than not being able to hold his liquor, Lee also happens to be a natural user of the Suiken, the drunk fist style of fighting!


Uzumaki Naruto

Chapter 211: "Unpredictable...!!" – Kiba and Akamaru emerge from the stream and move onto dry land, and Kiba tries to attend to his wounds. Lee begins his assault on Kimimaro, a fast and random freewheeling offensive style that is hard for Kimimaro to predict. Kimimaro uses the Dance of the Camellia but Lee manages to avoid his strikes. Lee finally connects and knocks Kimimaro backwards. Seeing no other choice, Kimimaro lowers his tunic and raises his left arm. Activating his cursed seal his radius and ulna multiply and emerge from his forearm. He charges to attack and Lee moves to avoid a strike, but not before Kimimaro extends his ribs out of his chest to barely graze Lee's cheek. Lee is surprised and knocked back to the ground. Standing over his opponent, Kimimaro boasts that this is his unpredictable bloodline limit...

Uchiha Sasuke

Chapter 212: "Pinch, Pinch, Pinch!!" – All around the area, the Leaf Genin are struggling... Kimimaro tells Lee that he can control the density and amount of bones in his body. On the stream a level two Sakon walks towards Kiba's location. Shikamaru continues his struggle with Tayuya. Lee understands he has to keep Kimimaro occupied for as long as possible, so he attempts Omote Renge. Kimimaro sends bones out of his chest and reduces Lee's upward kick to nothing. He then reaches in to strike Lee's face... Shikamaru tries to calm himself to think of a way to overcome his opponent. Elsewhere Kiba is surprised by Ukon, who hid his scent with Kiba's coat to get in close. Ukon removes a kunai and goes in to strike Kiba... Shikamaru's shadow falters and Tayuya readies a kunai to strike... but Tayuya is suddenly blasted away by a gust of wind! Ukon's kunai has connected with a dark robbed figure... Before Kimimaro's bone can strike Lee, an explosion of sand protects Lee and sends him backwards. Coming to the rescue of the Leaf Genin are the siblings of the Sand! Gaara, Kankurou and Temari have arrived!


Kankurou, Gaara and Temari

Chapter 213: "A Large Debt...!!" – Kimimaro makes the first move and fires the bones of his fingers like bullets. Gaara's sand rises and stops them easily. Lee asks Gaara why he is here, and the Sand Genin replies he has a debt to the Leaf. Elsewhere Shikamaru states he can't stand being protected by a woman, but Temari dismisses his talk. Shikamaru warns her that their opponent can create illusions. Temari understands and she unleashes a huge sickling wind. Tayuya tries to find cover. At Kiba's location, Kankurou controls Karasu and goes after Ukon. Kiba then notices Sakon lunging from behind Kankurou. The Sand Genin can't defend himself in time. Sakon had his hand on Kankurou's face to insert himself, but Kankurou's face falls away! Underneath lies a second puppet! The puppet wraps its bladed arms around Sakon and squeezes!

Chapter 214: "Retreat for the Time Being...!!" – The puppet casts aside Sakon and goes after Ukon. As Sakon's body lands, Ukon rushes to his brother’s aid and absorbs him into his body. Kiba yells for Kankurou not to underestimate the two men. Kankurou says the same should be said of him. He uses Karasu to attack the two men, as the Sound ninja backs away from the attack they unknowingly land right into Kankurou's second puppet Kuroari! It closes its chest, locking them inside! Karasu's limbs come off to reveal poison tipped blades. Kankurou brings the blades down into slots in Kuroari. Blood and a scream come out from the puppet, the fight is over, and Kankurou has won. Elsewhere Shikamaru tells Temari of their opponent’s powers but the Sand kunoichi says not to underestimate her power as well. Wiping her blood on her fan she swings it, summoning a weasel with a huge sickle! The gust of wind and weasel cut a huge swath of destruction, leveling the surrounding forest. When the dust settles, Tayuya is unconscious, crushed underneath large hewn tree trunks. Temari asks Shikamaru how it looks; he can only look on in bemused surprise, thinking to himself that though she is a pushy person, maybe he'll have to thank her this time around.

Chapter 215: "Gaara of the Desert" – In the field, Gaara see Lee's wounds and states he'll take Kimimaro. When Lee ignores Gaara, the Sand Genin trips Lee to prevent him from being hurt further. Kimimaro fires off another round of bullets and Gaara sends tendrils of Sand after him. Kimimaro avoids the attacks and says Gaara is pitiful, limited by the sand in his gourd. Gaara looks on and uses a rain of sand shower to distract Kimimaro. Tendrils of sand wrap around his feet and then begin to clump around Kimimaro. Gaara states he can do anything with sand, even crush the rock in the ground itself to create more like he is doing now. Gaara uses his Sabaku Sousou to crush Kimimaro, the technique fails and Kimimaro emerges from the sand, he has uses his bloodline to create an internal armor to prevent his crushing. Kimimaro says he took Gaara too lightly but it won't happen again. Gaara disagrees and causes a huge wave of sand to rise and fall over Kimimaro; slamming his hands to the ground Gaara constricts the sand to crush him. This fails as well; rising from the sand comes Kimimaro with a spiked tail!?...


Gaara

Chapter 216: "Spear and the Shield...!!" – Rising from the ground, Kimimaro begins to charge towards the two Genin, bursting through even another Sabaku Kyuu. Kimimaro has activated his level two form! No stand barrier can stop him and he gets close enough to knock Gaara back. He mocks Gaara's absolute defense. Lee takes action and tries to land strikes in Kimimaro, when he raises his tail to strike the Genin, sand bursts forth between them to launch Lee backwards to safety. Seeking to end the fight, Kimimaro reaches to the back of his neck and withdraws his spine into a long vine whip! Using his fourth dance, he wraps the tendril around Gaara and creates a large bone flower on his left arm. Sand gathers between the two men and forms a mini Shukaku shield! At Orochimaru's compound, Orochimaru and Kabuto discuss the Kaguya clan’s sad history of bloodshed and war. When they challenge their host Water country Hidden Mist wiped them out, and only Kimimaro remained. In the field, Kimimaro raises his unbreakable flower spear and strikes the belly of the impenetrable Shukaku!


Uchiha Sasuke

Chapter 217: "For Precious People" – As the Shukaku shield holds, Kimimaro's bone flower spear fails. Kimimaro tells Gaara that he is the last of his clan, and the Sand Genin mocks the Sound ninja for his dedication to a man who is just using him. Seeing the chance to finally end the fight, Gaara turns the ground below Kimimaro to sand and sinks him deep into the earth. Using the last of his dances, Kimimaro causes a forest of bone spikes to emerge from the ground. Gaara uses his sand to levitate himself and Lee above their deadly reach. Thinking themselves safe, Kimimaro emerges from one of the bone shafts and rages that they could not understand his dedication to Orochimaru. However, at that instant his body finally fails him. Kimimaro's body dies and he is frozen like a statue. Gaara and Lee then reflect on his passing and the importance of precious people. We then move to the Valley of the End. Two huge statues stand on either side of a huge waterfall. Naruto has finally caught up to Sasuke...
