When Naruto and his team open the two scrolls after reaching the tower, Iruka suddenly appears. Iruka notifies the three that they have passed the second exam. After hearing this news, Naruto is overwhelmed with joy, but along with the news of the passing, Iruka is here to talk about another thing. He starts lecturing on the spirit of the "Chunin" (middle rank) ninja to the students of the Ninja Academy. By now, Iruka has plenty of confidence in Naruto and his teammates as they overcame the difficult second exam. Meanwhile, Anko reports to the Hokage on the appearance of Orochimaru. Even though the Hokage learns that Orochimaru is targeting Sasuke, he decides to continue the Chunin Test. Finally, the twenty-one qualifiers of the second exam are decided.
