Gaara arrives to Konohagakure for the next Kage Summit and greets his sister Temari and her and Shikamaru's son Shikadai. Ino, Sai, Chōji and Karui are waiting for their children to finish the Academy so they can train them to become the next Ino–Shika–Chō. Kurenai's daughter pays her respects to her father before meeting Kakashi and Might Guy, both of whom are reflecting on memories elsewhere.

As Naruto arrives to where the current Kage are waiting, they begin their meeting.
