Inside the heavy mist, the Leaf ninja manage to rendezvous with Naruto. The team tightens their guard when they learn that the mist surrounding the lake causes illusions.
Naruto enters the mist to seek out Yukimaru. Guren stays alert to protect Yukimaru, whose current situation prevents him from moving.
Reinforcements arrive from the Leaf Village. The new mission from Tsunade: seal the Three-Tailed Beast so it won’t fall into anyone else’s hands and take Yukimaru whose powers are tied to the Tailed Beast into custody.
The Leaf ninja wish to seal the Three-Tailed Beast, and Guren’s team wishes to stop them at any cost.
To protect the Four-Corner Sealing Barrier necessary to seal the Three-Tailed Beast, Kakashi and Naruto wage their deadly battle against Guren.
Kabuto plans on breaking the Leaf’s Four-Corner Sealing Barrier from the inside by using Yukimaru’s power and have the Three-Tailed Beast go on a rampage.
To protect Guren from the raging Three Tails, Yukimaru exerts powers beyond his limits. Moved by his action, Guren now comes to regret her past sin of killing Yukimaru’s mother.
To protect Yukimaru, Naruto and Guren fight alongside each other against the Three-Tailed beast and are swallowed. Inside the beast is an unnatural world filled with limestone.
The Leaf ninja learn that Naruto is inside the Three-Tailed beast. With no other alternative but to trust Yukimaru’s mystical senses, Kakashi and the others follow the boy’s guidance and attempt a rescue mission.
Despite the Leaf ninja rescue attempt, Naruto and Guren do not return. Frustration builds among the group, but as Three Tails wakes from its sleep, the Sealing Team makes a second attempt at the Four Corner Sealing Barrier.
