Following last Saturday’s Naruto episodes of “Roar and Howl: The Ultimate Tag Team” and “To Each His Own Battle,” Cartoon Network will feature back-to-back premieres of “Fake-out: Shikamaru’s Comeback” and “The Leaf’s Handsome Devil” on December 15.

Read on to find out what’s in store for this week’s episodes.

“Fake-out: Shikamaru’s Comeback!” finds Naruto battling Kimimaro with everything he’s got.  On the other hand, he’s having difficulty landing a hit on him.  Meanwhile, Kiba is preoccupied with hiding from Akon and Ukon in the river.

Shikamaru, who is on his own, is having a hard time stopping Tayuya, especially when the three zombies release ghosts that eat physical energy.  With nine strategically timed attacks, he manages to stop the zombies and attempts to defeat Tayuya. However, he soon finds out that Tayuya isn’t finished yet when she activates the second level of her Cursed Seal.

The action continues in “The Leaf’s Handsome Devil” where Shikamaru and Tayuya put in great efforts to take control of their match as Kiba attempts to restore his health and Akamaru while keeping away from Sakon.

This episode also reveals that Sasuke’s process is finally completed. He runs off, leaving Naruto alone with Kimimaro.  While Naruto is distracted, Kimimaro attempts to attack and finish him off. Fortunately, Naruto is rescued by a surprising source.  Rock Lee has come to help out, and he agrees to keep Kimimaro preoccupied while Naruto goes after Sasuke.

Find out if Rock Lee stands a chance against Kimimaro on Saturday at 9pm on Cartoon Network.

Adapted from the manga series written and illustrated by Masashi Kishimoto, Naruto is an animated series that centers on the adventures of the Naruto Uzumaki, a hyperactive ninja who is constantly searching for recognition and to be acknowledged as a leader and strongest of all ninjas in the village.  The series also features Sasuke, the talented Academy heartthrob, and Sakura, a fierce fighter whose ultimate dream is to become a female ninja.
