"Call Naruto Home!!" (ナルトを呼び戻せ!!, Naruto o Yobimodose!!, Viz: Recall Naruto!!) is chapter 421 of the original Naruto manga.


Konoha's forces begin to mobilise, engaging the Six Paths of Pain in battle and protecting the fleeing villagers from harm. Kakashi continues to have trouble fighting the Deva Path, something that is not made any easier by the Asura Path joining the battle. Tsunade calls for Naruto's return to help in the fight with Pain, but the Konoha Council orders her not to, believing it would be best for Naruto, Pain's objective, to stay far away. Tsunade demands they have more faith in her judgement and Naruto's abilities, so they relent. Kōsuke is instructed to go to Mount Myōboku to tell Naruto about the village's crisis. He is killed by Danzō before he can leave, who intends to keep Naruto from getting involved.
