"Naruto and Sasuke 2" (ナルトとサスケ②, Naruto to Sasuke 2) is chapter 695 of the original Naruto manga.


Recoiling from the force of their clash, Sasuke quickly launches a fireball at Naruto. As the attack approaches, Naruto reactivates his Six Paths Sage Mode and uses a chakra arm to deflect it. Sasuke then instantly appears behind him and attacks with a Chidori, which knocks Naruto back across the water. Sasuke continues on the offensive and launches three Susanoo arrows, which Naruto neutralises with three Truth-Seeking Balls. Sasuke manifests his Complete Body — Susanoo and charges at Naruto who responds by entering his Kurama avatar. As they struggle, the duo reflect on past memories of similar hardships faced in their youth.

Sasuke claims Naruto will die if he continues to fight at his current pace, but Naruto retorts he doesn't want to kill Sasuke. Sasuke charges a Chidori via his Susanoo, while Naruto forms a Tailed Beast Ball mixed with senjutsu to counter. Naruto notes that he will never leave Sasuke alone as their attacks clash, forming a titanic explosion of energy. Inside the blast, Sasuke comments that he truly understands Naruto's actions and has reciprocal respect for them, before rhetorically asking if Naruto feels the same way.
