Konohamaru has formed the Konoha Corps, and recruits Naruto into the fray. He instructs Naruto to find the legendary crimson four-leaf clover, which is rumored to grant anyone a wish. And thus, the gang set off to explore the vast area of Akagahara, where the old chuunin exams were held. Along with Sakura and Sasuke, will they find the item of legend, or will they be thwarted by the mysterious danger that awaits anyone that comes?!
This sweet little story takes place early in the show, and it's nice to go back and be reminded of the beginnings of Naruto (as I just finished the show). The story itself isn't anything major, but I think that's part of why I enjoyed it so much, as Naruto usually gets himself involved with bigger things, and this was a nice change of pace without becoming boring or lame. Also, Kakashi is just the best. He's so nonchallant that it makes me laugh.
This is essentially an extra filler episode and sadly it's not one of those rare few that I actually enjoy. It was good for a chuckle or two but honestly not worth the seventeen minutes of my life I spent watching it. Only neccesary to watch if your one of those hardcore fans who has to see literally every single thing that has anything to do with the Naruto franchise.
Anime in 200 Words: Naruto Special 1: Find the Crimson Four-Leaf Clover! Premise: Konohamaru has a crush and he needs Naruto’s help to find a magical four-leaf clover for her. They get in some good training and bonding time. Characters: Naruto and Konohamaru are on screen the most, and the crush is a filler girl who was never mentioned before, and never shows up again. Poor undeveloped filler girl. Story: Apparently, red clovers grow in the forest around the Leaf Village, and these rare plants are said to have legendary powers. The plot is the same quality level used for filler episodes; in fact, it reminds me quite a bit of a few of them that revolve around Konohamaru’s kindergarten squad. Action: There are not really many battles here, and the special relies on humor to fill the time. You might find an interesting jutsu, but if you’re expecting phenomenal battles that reshape the Land of Fire, this isn’t going to deliver. Overall: Find the Crimson Four-Leaf Clover! is below average for Naruto plots, but while it won’t win any awards, it is moderately entertaining. Unless you’re really committed to watching every Naruto animation, I’d pick something else to watch.
