Naruto's Counterattack: Never Give In! (ナルト反撃!逃げねーんだってばよ!, Naruto Hangeki! Nigenēndattebayo!) is episode 29 of the original Naruto anime.


Despite Naruto's timely appearance, Sasuke decides to relinquish their scroll to Shiore to ensure their team's survival. However, refusing to accept Sasuke's mindset, Naruto takes the scroll from him. Naruto begins fighting Shiore ninja and his snakes, tapping into the Nine-Tails' chakra in the process. The ninja, recognising Naruto as the Nine-Tails' container, uses a seal to block the boy's access to the fox's chakra, rendering him unconscious. Naruto's efforts, however, rejuvenate Sasuke with determination, and he prepares to battle the Kusa shinobi. However, as the events occurred, Anko finds the real Shiore, dead and faceless like his team as she recongised it to be the work of someone she knows.
