"Sakura's Decision!!" (サクラの決意!!, Sakura no Ketsui!!, Viz: Sakura's Resolve!!) is chapter 459 of the original Naruto manga.


At the Kage Summit, the Fourth Raikage protests Danzō's nomination. Mifune gives his arguments. Ao becomes suspicious and uses his Byakugan. In the Konoha, the members of Team 8, Team 10, and Team Guy decide that Sasuke's recent actions will only drag the village into a war. On behalf of the group, Shikamaru approaches Team 7 with plans to eliminate Sasuke before he can become more of a burden. This, combined with Sai's claims that making Sakura happy causes Naruto more pain than Sasuke does, causes Sakura to agree. Back at the Summit, thanks to his Byakugan, which comes from a defeated member of the Hyūga clan, Ao reveals that Danzō is using his Sharingan, which originally belonged to Shisui Uchiha, to manipulate Mifune. Before Danzō can be questioned about this, Zetsu, on Tobi's order, infiltrates the Summit and tells the Kage that Sasuke is nearby.
