"Jōnin Leader" (担当上忍, Tantō Jōnin) is episode 360 of the Naruto: Shippūden anime.
Now relieved from his Anbu duties, Kakashi starts his day as jōnin and instructor to genin. He recalls his past mistakes on his training days with his former sensei Minato Namikaze and tries to make his own way in instructing his candidates, primarily team-work and not blindly following the rules. Hiruzen notices the "darkness" still embedded in Kakashi's heart when Kakashi fails his genin teams in the bell test. Meanwhile, Guy trains Lee, Neji and Tenten and the young shinobi successfully excel in their training. As they rest, they talk about Kakashi's way of training and this makes Guy worry. At the Dango Shop, Guy talks to Asuma and Kurenai about Kakashi and suddenly Hiruzen joins them. After Kakashi continuously ignores Guy, he is stormed by his former students and thanked him for the lessons he taught from the bell test. Hiruzen finally reveals the next genin team to be assigned to Kakashi: Sakura Haruno, Sasuke Uchiha, and Naruto Uzumaki.
- When Hiruzen presents the data of Team 7, it is been stated that Sakura's birthday is on March 26 which contradicts what is mentioned in the databooks that her birthday was actually on March 28.
