    Hmm...
[00:13] ---
    Excuse me!
[00:14] ---
    Hmm...
[00:17] ---
    I'm here to give you my mission report.
[00:19] ---
    Hmm...?
[00:22] ---
    What's the matter, Lord Seventh?
[00:25] ---
    It's Evil Jammer Kagemasa.
[00:29] ---
    Huh?
[00:30] ---
    It's a very popular shinobi movie.
[00:32] ---
    I know that, but what does that
    have to do with Lord Seventh?
[00:36] ---
    I was asked if I could
    make a guest appearance
[00:40] ---
    as the Hokage in the movie.
[00:42] ---
    Wow, you were, Lord Seventh?!
[00:44] ---
    I'm looking forward to it!
[00:45] ---
    I'll definitely go see that!
[00:47] ---
    The thing is...
[00:50] ---
    Himawari won a vacation
    to a hot spring in a raffle.
[00:54] ---
    A vacation to a hot spring?
[00:55] ---
    I took some days off to go with my family...
[01:00] ---
    but I'd completely forgotten about this.
[01:03] ---
    Well, you have no choice
    but to make an appearance.
[01:06] ---
    The movie apparently ends with a Rasengan.
[01:10] ---
    The director insists on it.
[01:13] ---
    Guess it can't be helped...
[01:15] ---
    Guess I'll have to apologize to Himawari.
[01:17] ---
    Though she might end up
    hitting my Chakra Points again...
[01:24] ---
    In that case, why don't I appear
    in your place, Lord Seventh!?
[01:28] ---
    Huh?
[01:29] ---
    I can use the Rasengan too!
[01:31] ---
    I'll handle the role,
[01:33] ---
    so please go enjoy your hot spring vacation!
[01:37] ---
    Konohamaru!
[01:39] ---
    Seriously, you're a lifesaver, ya know!
[01:41] ---
    Thanks.
[01:43] ---
    You don't need to take it seriously.
[01:44] ---
    Just enjoy yourself.
[01:46] ---
    Hey, if I'm doing this...
[01:48] ---
    I want to do my very best
    to play the part of the Hokage!
[01:54] ---
    Hey, c'mon...
[01:56] ---
    Your blade's all chipped.
[01:58] ---
    What?!
[01:58] ---
    I think you might be slacking a little...
[02:01] ---
    It's gonna be a problem
    if anything happens.
[02:04] ---
    I-I'll be all right.

[03:53] ---
    This movie was so cool.
[03:57] ---
    I've come as the stand-in for Lord Seventh!
[03:59] ---
    My name is Konohamaru Sarutobi!
[04:01] ---
    Pleased to meet you!
[04:03] ---
    Oh, it's a pleasure.
[04:04] ---
    I'm so glad you could make it!
[04:06] ---
    Wow! Your dignified demeanor
[04:08] ---
    is just perfect for playing the Hokage!
[04:11] ---
    Oh no, I can't hold a candle to Lord Seventh.
[04:15] ---
    But you can count on me for the Rasengan!
[04:17] ---
    Oh, we can figure that out,
    so don't worry about it.
[04:21] ---
    As long as we can
    get the Hokage to certify later
[04:23] ---
    that he supervised you,
[04:25] ---
    we'll be okay!
[04:26] ---
    Oh...
[04:28] ---
    You'll have a battle scene with me.
[04:30] ---
    Good to work with you.
[04:32] ---
    You're Mr. Gongoro Kamakura,
    who plays Kagemasa!
[04:36] ---
    I love your movies and I've seen them all!
[04:40] ---
    Thank you very mu—
[04:43] ---
    Are you all right?
[04:45] ---
    Well, I hurt my back during the shoot.
[04:49] ---
    I don't have to do
    anything else today, right?
[04:52] ---
    No, thank you!
[04:54] ---
    Anyway, I'd like to meet and discuss
[04:56] ---
    what we'll be doing tomorrow.
[04:57] ---
    Ow...
[04:59] ---
    We don't need to meet.
[05:01] ---
    I'm fine with playing it by ear.
[05:03] ---
    Well, thanks for today!
[05:06] ---
    I guess when you're a star,
    you don't need to have meetings...!

    Well, we don't have time to waste,
    so let's get to shooting!
[05:25] ---
    Hold on...
[05:26] ---
    I haven't read the script yet!
[05:29] ---
    You'll be fine!
[05:30] ---
    It's an easy scene!
[05:32] ---
    Right, Director?!
[05:34] ---
    Yeah.
[05:35] ---
    What?!
[05:39] ---
    Are you sure this is good enough?
[05:41] ---
    I can transform into Lord Seventh, you know?
[05:43] ---
    Oh, there's no need for that.
[05:46] ---
    All right, time for makeup!
[05:49] ---
    Now stay still.
[05:51] ---
    Huh?
[05:52] ---
    What?!
[06:00] ---
    There's nothing on set?
[06:02] ---
    We'll add it in later on.
[06:04] ---
    Okay, action!
[06:06] ---
    Huh?
[06:07] ---
    What?!
[06:12] ---
    Together, Kagemasa and I will put
    an end to this evil without fail,
[06:16] ---
    in the name of the Hokage, hey!
[06:18] ---
    Oh no! The thing I always say!
[06:20] ---
    We're good!
[06:21] ---
    What?! You're okay with that?!
[06:23] ---
    Was it too bland?
[06:25] ---
    That's not it!
[06:26] ---
    That was spot on!
[06:28] ---
    Also, it might be good if we add
    some explosions over there!
[06:30] ---
    Is this gonna be all right?
[06:31] ---
    Hm? Okay...
[06:36] ---
    The guy playing Shikamaru...
[06:39] ---
    Man, that Kagemasa
    is such a big drag... for sure!
[06:44] ---
    Totally not like him!
[06:46] ---
    'Kay, we're good.
[06:48] ---
    Let's take a break!
[06:52] ---
    Do you want to see what we just filmed?
[06:54] ---
    I can see it already?
[06:56] ---
    Yes.
[06:58] ---
    In the name of the Hokage!
[07:00] ---
    The line was fixed?!
[07:08] ---
    How should I say this...?
[07:13] ---
    It's quite flashy, isn't it?
[07:14] ---
    Nowadays, we can fix
    whatever we want just like this.
[07:19] ---
    Until recently,
[07:21] ---
    the director used to jump into
    explosions himself with a camera,
[07:25] ---
    and Mr. Gongoro used to take on
    dangerous stunts during the shoot...
[07:30] ---
    You've been around since the first movie?
[07:32] ---
    That's right.
[07:33] ---
    I was impressed by how the director
    risked his life to make movies,
[07:37] ---
    so I wanted to become a director like him!
[07:40] ---
    I see...
[07:42] ---
    But today's shoot kind of...
[07:46] ---
    seemed like assembly-line work.
[07:49] ---
    Well, that's...
[07:51] ---
    Is there a reason for that?
[07:53] ---
    Ever since that producer came on board,
[07:55] ---
    we haven't been fully utilizing
    our talented staff and actors.
[07:57] ---
    And we've shifted to relying on
    CGI and graphic effects
[08:00] ---
    for our flashier shots.
[08:01] ---
    The director and the others
    were opposed to this.

[08:04] ---
    But once everyone got used to it,
[08:06] ---
    they started to feel like
[08:08] ---
    they didn't need to try hard anymore...
[08:10] ---
    That explains things.
[08:12] ---
    But deep down, I think they
[08:17] ---
    want to do a shoot on location,
    just like we used to do back then.
[08:23] ---
    Tomorrow's shoot...
[08:25] ---
    Hm?
[08:26] ---
    I'm doing a battle scene
    with Kagemasa, right?
[08:28] ---
    Yes, that's the plan.
[08:31] ---
    I want to show how amazing Lord Seventh is
SIGN    KAGEMASA OF THE DEAD
[08:34] ---
    by making that scene
    as cool as possible.
[08:38] ---
    Would you be able to do that?
[08:40] ---
    Mr. Konohamaru...
[08:43] ---
    I have an idea. Leave it to me!
[08:46] ---
    All right, since that's decided,
    let's put an end to this!
[08:50] ---
    Man, that Kagemasa
    is such a big drag... for sure!

[09:00] ---
    Where's the key to the studio?!
[09:02] ---
    The thing is, we can't find it anywhere!
[09:05] ---
    That means we have no choice
    but to shoot outdoors!
[09:08] ---
    Huh?
[09:09] ---
    Then there's no way we can
    get shooting right away!
[09:21] ---
    I can't believe there's no one around.
[09:24] ---
    What's going on here?
[09:26] ---
    With Mr. Konohamaru's help,
[09:28] ---
    we were able to get permission
    to shoot in the city.
[09:31] ---
    Let's go all out!
[09:33] ---
    Well, since we can't use the studio,
[09:35] ---
    we have no choice.
[09:36] ---
    We'll just have to shoot here.
[09:38] ---
    Well, that's true.
[09:40] ---
    Since we can't fix this with CGI,
[09:42] ---
    I'll need to do your makeup properly.
[09:44] ---
    It's been a while since
    we've had a shoot like this.
[09:46] ---
    Let's go all out!
[09:48] ---
    All right!
[09:50] ---
    Everyone, let's get ready!
[09:52] ---
    Okay!
[09:52] ---
    Okay!
[10:09] ---
    Cut! We're good!
[10:12] ---
    We managed to get everything.
[10:14] ---
    Yeah.
[10:15] ---
    You were both great!
[10:17] ---
    Thank you very much.
[10:18] ---
    Ow...
[10:20] ---
    Are you all right?
[10:22] ---
    I'm fine!
[10:24] ---
    This is nothing if it means
    we can make a great movie.
[10:28] ---
    Right, Director?
[10:29] ---
    Yeah, that's right.
[10:33] ---
    A great movie, huh?
[10:36] ---
    Why are you doing things
    without my permission?!
[10:39] ---
    I-I'm sorry!
[10:41] ---
    But we got some amazing shots,
    so it won't affect our schedule—
[10:45] ---
    That's not the issue!
[10:48] ---
    I can't have you doing things on your own!
[10:51] ---
    I'm sorry we did this
    without your permission.
[10:53] ---
    But if you just take a look at it,
    you'll understand.
[10:57] ---
    We got some really nice shots—
[10:58] ---
    I don't care about any of that!
[11:02] ---
    You bastard!
[11:03] ---
    Our cameras mean everything to us!
[11:09] ---
    What the hell are you doing?!
[11:10] ---
    You're all fired!
[11:12] ---
    It doesn't matter who works on this.
[11:14] ---
    As long as Kagemasa appears,
[11:15] ---
    we'll get seats filled in the theater!
[11:16] ---
    I'm swapping out all the core staff!
[11:20] ---
    Hold on a second! That's just too—
[11:22] ---
    You will show up for filming per usual.
[11:26] ---
    Bye.

[11:33] ---
    I'm sorry.
[11:35] ---
    This is all my fault for asking too much.
[11:37] ---
    You have my thanks.
[11:40] ---
    What?
[11:40] ---
    It's been a while since we shot on location.
[11:43] ---
    It was fun.
[11:45] ---
    All this time, we've worked
    exclusively with Gongoro,
[11:49] ---
    but this is the first time I've seen him
[11:51] ---
    so fired up in a while.
[11:53] ---
    I'm glad we were able to have
    a satisfying shoot in the end.
[11:56] ---
    Everyone...!
[11:58] ---
    But—!
[12:00] ---
    I can't believe he fired us!
[12:02] ---
    All right, let's continue filming
    using my savings!
[12:07] ---
    I'll go to the bank and
    take some money out tomorrow!
[12:09] ---
    Hold on, I think you've had
    too much to drink!
[12:12] ---
    I mean...
[12:14] ---
    the reason why the Kagemasa series
    has stayed so popular
[12:18] ---
    is because of all of you!
[12:22] ---
    I can't forgive him for this!
[12:27] ---
    Honestly, isn't there anything we can do?
[12:31] ---
    The first time I saw a Kagemasa movie,
[12:33] ---
    I was so moved by how
    unbelievably cool it was.
[12:36] ---
    I thought that the people
    who'd made these movies
[12:39] ---
    would definitely be able to show everyone
[12:41] ---
    how amazing Lord Seventh really is!
[12:43] ---
    You're...
[12:47] ---
    But if you're all fired,
[12:50] ---
    I'm dropping out too!
[12:51] ---
    If you do that, the movie won't get finished.
[12:56] ---
    What?
[12:57] ---
    Gongoro has stuck by
    the likes of us, all this time.
[13:02] ---
    Could you show up to the shoot for his sake?
[13:06] ---
    Director!
[13:11] ---
    Now way. Seriously?
[13:13] ---
    This is pretty bad, don't you think?

    We couldn't stand around
    doing nothing, so we came.

    I see...

    Let's get this, Director.
[14:41] ---
    What?
[14:41] ---
    I'm sure that's what he wants.
[14:44] ---
    See the look in his eyes.
[14:48] ---
    That kid...
[14:50] ---
    He's gone and matured into
    a full-fledged director!
[14:54] ---
    We can't let his spirit
    and determination go to waste!
[14:58] ---
    Let's get this footage!
[14:59] ---
    – Yes, sir!
    – Yes, sir!
[15:00] ---
    That said, since we don't have a camera,
[15:03] ---
    there's nothing we can do.
[15:06] ---
    Were you able to get that?
[15:07] ---
    I can't get anything
    with this camera at this distance.

    Come on! This is a big scoop!

    The wind has carried the cries of the weak...
[17:40] ---
    My eyes ache, telling me
    to defend the powerless...
[17:44] ---
    Who the hell are you?!
[17:47] ---
    I'm the ninja, Evil Jammer Kagemasa!
[17:50] ---
    Kagemasa!
[17:51] ---
    Huh?
[17:53] ---
    This is my only chance!
[17:58] ---
    I didn't cut through it?
[18:01] ---
    It's gonna be a problem if anything happens.
[18:05] ---
    You bastard!
SIGN    EXPLODE
[18:07] ---
    It's over...
[18:16] ---
    Kagemasa?!
[18:19] ---
    I activated the Paper Bomb.
[18:21] ---
    All that's left is to wait for it to explode.
[18:25] ---
    It's all... over now.
[18:28] ---
    We need to get away from here
    as soon as possible!
[18:31] ---
    Should I take the two injured
    and get out of here?

[18:34] ---
    It's no good. I won't make it in time.
[18:36] ---
    Are you going to give up?
[18:37] ---
    Huh?
[18:39] ---
    Are you going to give up, Hokage?
[18:44] ---
    That's right!
[18:45] ---
    I'm taking on the title of Hokage
    in place of Lord Seventh right now.

[18:52] ---
    Remember!
[18:54] ---
    The Hokage I know!
[18:57] ---
    The kind of Hokage I want to be!
[19:01] ---
    The Hokage I look up to...
[19:04] ---
    ...would never give up!
[19:15] ---
    You're going to suppress the explosion
[19:17] ---
    by hitting it with the Rasengan, eh, Hokage?
[19:20] ---
    Rasengan!
[19:25] ---
    Keep that camera rolling, no matter what!
[19:27] ---
    Yes, sir!
[19:41] ---
    That was such a big drag for sure...
[19:44] ---
    But the case is closed, for sure!
[19:49] ---
    Totally not like him!
[19:51] ---
    Cut!
[19:53] ---
    Director?!
[19:55] ---
    Seeing you, made me remember.
[19:58] ---
    When I was filming the first Kagemasa...
[20:02] ---
    I had no budget or equipment,
[20:04] ---
    but still I wanted to make something fun.
[20:06] ---
    I wanted to film amazing scenes!
[20:08] ---
    My desire was stronger than anyone!
[20:11] ---
    As I told myself that, I did
    whatever I could to shoot my movie.
[20:14] ---
    The way I felt back then...
[20:17] ---
    Director!
[20:20] ---
    Director, we shot the movie
    we wanted to shoot!
SIGN    LEAF MOVIE STUDIOS
[20:26] ---
    Amazing!
[20:28] ---
    The footage from yesterday was the best!
[20:31] ---
    Well, thanks.
[20:33] ---
    Oh, you're filming outside today, right?
[20:34] ---
    I see everyone's back.
[20:35] ---
    I'll get the equipment ready pronto!
[20:36] ---
    Yes.
[20:37] ---
    When our sponsors saw the news footage,
[20:39] ---
    they were so moved...
[20:41] ---
    that they wanted to see Kagemasa
[20:44] ---
    shot by the director as soon as possible.
[20:46] ---
    Upon hearing that, the producer panicked
[20:46] ---
    Keep going at that pace
    and finish up the rest.
[20:48] ---
    and withdrew his decision to fire us.
[20:52] ---
    Hey! Producer!
[20:56] ---
    I want to make the ending
    especially flashy...
[20:58] ---
    I'm counting on you to get
    the CGI staff ready!
[21:02] ---
    You can count on me!
[21:04] ---
    Is that all right, Director?
[21:06] ---
    I remembered that the means and methods
    aren't the only things that matter.
[21:12] ---
    Anyway, you're starting to get
    a good eye for things.
[21:17] ---
    Let's make a great movie!
[21:19] ---
    Of course we will!
[21:21] ---
    All right, everyone!
[21:23] ---
    Let's put some spirit into this shoot!
[21:26] ---
    Yes, sir!
[21:26] ---
    Yes, sir!
[21:33] ---
    The latest in the Kagemasa series
    is an unprecedented hit!

[21:37] ---
    To uncover its secrets,
    I'm here at the Leaf movie theater...

[21:43] ---
    "Don't forget where you came from," huh?
[21:48] ---
    Hey, I guess I need to make sure
    I don't forget that.
[23:26] ---
    Isn't this wonderful?
[23:27] ---
    I'm so glad we're able to
    take a trip together!
[23:29] ---
    Yeah, that's for sure!
[23:30] ---
    Anyway, what an old inn!
[23:32] ---
    I think a ghost might appear...
[23:34] ---
    You believe in ghosts?
[23:36] ---
    Hey, Kawaki, don't you know that
[23:38] ---
    people who say such things
    tend to be scared of ghosts?
[23:41] ---
    That's not true!
