Naruto Special The Cross Roads (2009)
(OVA 5) This is a computer-generated OVA focused on the character of Sasuke Uchiha during the time he was in team 7. It takes place during the time between the Land of Waves arc and the Chunin Exams arc. Team 7 is on a mission to rescue a man lost in the forest. Kakashi leaves his Genin to go check out where he thinks the man is. While he is away, a ninja shows up and kidnaps Sakura. The boys travel to pursue them until they come to a cave, where they work together in order to save her. Using a clever technique involving a smokescreen, chakra threads and some fire, Sasuke dispatches the enemy. However, the ninja is used to convey a message to Sasuke, after which the ninja's body moves no more. As Kakashi arrives on the scene, a little white snake is seen wriggling out of the body to Orochimaru. The OVA ends 3 years post incident, with an older Sasuke and Tobi. This suggests that the OVA was only a reflection of his past.
