"Hole" (風穴, Kazaana) is episode 371 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
As he continues defending his comrades from Obito and Madara's various attacks, Naruto begins to tire from micromanaging Kurama's chakra, and Kurama warns him about it. Obito confronts Naruto and ridicules him on his defensive strategy but Naruto replies that the presence of his comrades gives him power and their absence hurts him. Elsewhere, Madara grows increasingly excited at sensing Hashirama's chakra. Obito remarks how the Ten-Tails is beyond suppression as it unleashes the Tenpenchii. Kakashi attempts stopping it with his Kamui before he is intercepted by his former team-mate and the two go to the other dimension and the former puts his trust in Naruto. The Ten-Tails's technique causes massive destruction yet the shinobi survive thanks to Naruto and much to Madara's shock. Unfortunately, the young jinchūriki is worn out and injured, leaving Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and causing the cloaks of the alliance to fade away. The Ten-Tails senses several tailed beasts' chakra within the young ninja and increases it's power. Grateful, Hinata and some shinobi stand as Naruto's defence as Sakura heals him. Landing better, Kakashi gains the upper hand against Obito, having a Lightning Cutter aimed at him. Obito comments on how just like before, Kakashi has a chance to finish him off but hesitates. Kakashi still tries to persuade his old team-mate into reverting to how he was before but is taunted about failing and still believing so. The Uchiha explains that he is able to mock Naruto now because he was once like him. He goes on to reveal that he is aware of the true story of Rin's death being that Kiri-nin planned to use her to unleash the Three-Tails on Konoha and she purposely made herself to die by Kakashi's hand to protect her village. Alas, he uses genjutsu to show his former team-mate that his heart is empty and the Infinite Tsukuyomi can help people to fill the holes in their hearts. Nonetheless, Kakashi argues that Rin is dead from her sacrifice and the dream world is nonsense. Outside, the Ten-Tails begins preparing a large Tailed Beast Ball much to the horror of the Alliance.
