"Kakashi's EXP" (カカシの経験値, Kakashi no Keikenchi, Viz: Kakashi Comes Through) is chapter 257 of the original Naruto manga.


Knowing how skilled with genjutsu Itachi is, Kakashi warns Team 7 not to make eye contact with him. Chiyo points out that they are superior in numbers, but Kakashi explains that they cannot compete with Itachi's Mangekyō Sharingan. He then asks how much Itachi's eyes have deteriorated, surprising Itachi. Team 7 prepares for a joint assault. Meanwhile, Team Guy continues to fight Kisame. In order to focus his attention on Guy, Kisame catches the rest of the team in a prison of water.
