Ok, so last episode Naruto found an amnesiac dude and now they're on a quest to the Rice Country for Menma's memories. On the way there, Neji "purposely falls off a branch" and everyone is like 'wtf??' (Sorry no pics for that), and Menma saves him. So Neji comments on how Menma is faster than him. omg better than Neji.
So Neji and Tenten automatically assume that he might be a spy. Anyone who's better than Neji must be ebil!!
They arrived in a village destroyed by thieves. A dude from the village tells them to leave cause they're not welcomed here because they think ninjas are ebil. Neji is all 'yeah let's leave, this is none of our business.'
But Naruto and Menma want to stay to help the villagers. Neji says "Nuu, this is not part of our mission. I can't do anything on my own unless it's a mission from Konoha and I get paid for it."
And Tenten is like: "Yeah, what Neji says. Neji is always right. I always do what he says, even if it involves watching people die like in the previous Star Village fillers. Heaven forbids I should think on my own!"
So Naruto says: "You suck, go back to the village!" But unbeknown to him, they hide in a tree and watch Naruto and Menma building a wall on their own.
And the day passes, and Neji and Tenten remain in their tree
Tenten wakes up, and for once decides that Neji is a jerk for not wanting to help out and makes a decision on her own *gasp!* and goes to help the two without Neji telling her to. OMG
By now, the entire village has decided to help out! Everyone works together to build the wall. But Neji remains in his tree and does absolutely nothing! But suddenly, an enemy attacks!
Neji instantly notices and chases him, meaning he had been keeping watch on them all along. Awww! He uses "Catching him is part of this mission, after all." as an excuse to help them.
Because of Menma's magic ocarina, Naruto and him gain some super magic powers and pull off super magic ninja moves.
But Menma gets injured, so they watch as the village dude performs anesthesia-less operation on him.
Turns out Menma is actually part of the group of thieves attacking the village. Nuuu!
Neji leaves to do Neji-stuff, and Tenten and Naruto fall asleep (aren't they cute!) But Menma escapes!
Tenten gets scolded for letting him escape. Neji sighes at their incompetence. (He really does!) And later the villagers throw rocks at them and they are completely helpless. Rocks. Ninjas' weakness! (No picture for that, but really you should've seen how pathetic they were.)
The thieves attack and they fend them off, Menma confesses that he had his memory all along and sacrifices his life to save the village T_T Naruto stops the leader.
And everyone feels bad they thought Menma was ebil. Except Neji. Or maybe he does, but who can tell? The guy never shows any freaking feelings!!
Naruto eats ramen with Menma's ghost and is happy. The end.
Seriously, I joke about Tenten always doing what Neji says, but really I think she does it only because she has complete faith in him. (But I think still he sucks for not helping the kids in the Star Village just because it would cause trouble. Though it did pain him to do so. That's what I saw, anyways.)
