Uchiha Sasuke! (サスケうちは!!, Uchiha Sasuke!!) is Chapter 19 of the manga.
As they go over the list of missing-nin while in a dango shop, Team Guy comes across Sasuke Uchiha's profile. Remembering their former comrade, Tenten wonder where they could go to find the missing Uchiha before hearing a familiar voice behind them. Turning in shock, they see Sasuke and the rest of his team in the booth behind them. The three later confront him after they leave the dango shop, and Lee beseeches Sasuke to return to the village, telling him that it was taco night. Still refusing, Neji steps forward and tells the Uchiha that he was still shrouded in darkness, and then mentions that there would also be ice-cream for dessert. When this proves futile, the duo prepares to take Sasuke by force when Suigetsu arrives. Upon seeing their opponent turn into water Lee hastily moves in and uses what he refers to as a Lightning Release : Carpet Pad Static Electricity on Suigetsu's head to create static electricity which is super effective against him, much to Tenten's shock. As Karin arrives at the location, misjudging her for a strong-minded woman who didn't need a man, Neji uses his Byakugan to come to the realisation that Karin was actually a tsundere character. With Jūgo 's arrival, he is mistaken as a calm, level-headed individual before he goes berserk and declares that he was going to murder them. However, Lee's mention of Kimimaro calms down the murderous instinct and causes him to question Lee about Kimimaro's final moments. Lee questions Sasuke about how he was so popular with the females and Sasuke confesses he himself has no idea, telling Lee he has no use for him. Lee chides Sasuke, reminding him that he had copied his taijutsu style in the past, much to Suigetsu's disbelief. Sasuke activates his Sharingan and challenges Lee to a taijutsu duel, but as the two sides clash, Team Guy soon realises that they had been trapped in a genjutsu and that their opponents had already left. Later, the two teams comically meet up in another eatery.
