"Blaze Away, Byakugan! This is My Ninja Way!" (燃えよ白眼! これが私の忍道よ, Moe yo Byakugan! Kore ga Watashi no Nindō yo) is episode 151 of the original Naruto anime.


Shino, Kiba and Naruto are trapped in the hive of the queen bee where Shino provokes her to use the honey spit trap on them. Now rendered immobile, the three get captured by Suzumebachi's team who interrogates them for information on how to find the hidden bikōchū beetle. Shino is reluctant, but eventually agrees to tell if they take them to Hinata first. They take the three to the river where Hinata was tied, only to find the rope cut apart and Hinata missing. Suzumebachi's group believes Hinata fell into the sewer, which makes Naruto become aggressive with Jibachi despite being stuck in the beeswax. Hinata is suddenly revealed to have escaped when she throws a paper bomb onto the ground where Suzumebachi's team was standing; Suzumebachi's group sends off flying insects to retaliate, but Hinata destroys them with her new technique, thereby forcing them away and saving her companions. Meanwhile, Shino tells Naruto that Hinata has trained really hard since the Chūnin Exams and that she is not the same Hinata he once knew. Shino, Naruto and Kiba then escape the beeswax from the help of Shino's insects and Naruto praises Hinata for rescuing them. Suzumebachi comes at the group one last time with her giant bee, which Naruto easily defeats with his Rasengan; this launches Sasuke's forehead protector underneath a pile of logs. While trying to retrieve the forehead protector, Naruto accidentally farts on the bikōchū, causing it to memorize his scent instead of Sasuke's. Although the mission fails to find a way of locating Sasuke, Hinata appears more confident, and her father seems to respect her more.


  • When the bikōchū searched for Naruto's scent in Konohagakure, Masashi Kishimoto's drawing of himself as a Konoha shinobi can be seen in the background.
