Canon

The Past: The Hidden Leaf Village

Iruka sits at a bench, exasperated over what to do about Naruto. A voice calls to him and he looks up to see Kakashi reading in the tree. He apologizes for bothering him, but Kakashi jumps down and tells him he was about to leave anyway. He starts to walk away but instead turns and asks Iruka what's wrong. He sits beside Iruka, waiting for him to talk. Iruka tells him that he's just become Naruto's homeroom teacher, and he doesn't know how to handle him.

Kakashi reflects on how during their first mission together, Iruka's eyes were full of life, and now they're very dead inside. Iruka tells Kakashi that nine-tails that killed his parents, is inside Naruto, and even though Naruto isn't to blame, it's hard to separate the two. Kakashi tells Iruka that he's the only one who can get through to Naruto, and it's an ordeal he'll have to go through. He tells Iruka he'll find a way and leaves the teacher to think about his words.

Kakashi finds Shikamaru and Choji out of school. They tell him that Iruka went after Naruto in the woods so they have a free period. Kakashi tells them to go back to the academy and goes after Iruka and Naruto.

Iruka carries Naruto as they try to get away from enemy ninja, who are about to hit them, but the attack is blocked by Kakashi. He asks Iruka if he and Naruto are alright, Iruka immediately asking why Kakashi is here. Kakashi informs him that his students told him and he became concerned. The enemy ninja are about to attack, and Kakashi yells to move. He is able to defeat the ninja and Iruka thanks him for saving himself and Naruto. Kakashi tells him that Iruka would have protected Naruto even if he hadn't come. Iruka tells him that he now gets how to understand Naruto and the two go back to the village.
