In the Hokage Office
"Ah, this year's academy class looks good. Got me a Uchiha, a Nara, and a Hyuga. This will be interesting. I should just fuck around and put them in the same team, make a super team... Oh.. and there is my son. He managed to graduate too..." A figure sitting in the executive chair that has its back turned to the door sighs slightly.

A knock can be heard...

"Come in." The Hokage said, turning his chair so he would face the entrance to his office to greet his visitor. "Sir, the graduating class is ready for you. Should I have them come to you or will you go to meet them?" "Eh. Have them come in. I will be assigning teams and perhaps their first missions as well... That reminds me..." He turned his attention to a few dossiers on the table. "I also need to pick their team leaders as well. I might...." "Is there anything else you would like me to tell them?" "Nah. Don't freak them out too much. Just have them come through." "Very good, please excuse me" The Hokage offered the ninja a respectful nod as the ninja exited.

"So...how should I split the teams... Perhaps I'll just come up with it on the spot... after all, I've never even met these kids.. Gods be good they're competent. I don't want to write any letters to any families informing that one of theirs have died..." Taking a sip from the cup on his table, he leaned back into his chair and waited for the arrival of the freshly promoted Genins.

Tsukai Uchiha




I stood looking around at all the faces of the other genin that just graduated with him, Some younger faces, that no one knew were there and some older faces that everyone knew. He was one of the last ones to stroll into the waiting area, it was kind of crowded, So he started pushing his way through the kids his age. Being one of the shortest makes it difficult to find your friends through the mass of bodies. Eventually I start recognizing some of the kids from my class, The easiest two to spot are Shikkaru and Kuroda, Their heads stick up above the rest and Shikkaru's hair points him out like a beacon. The blond and black contrasting one another. I decided I didn't need to make myself look any shorter than I already was, so I defiantly wasn't going to stand next to either of them while I waited. Pushing my way further to the front of the pack I noticed a familiar dark haired girl. The one that always carried the sword, Her name was escaping me at the moment, so I decided not to make a fool of myself and call her by the wrong name. I was already just about to the front of all the kids, still with no one to stand with, I was getting desperate. Finally, I noticed someone I could approach.

"Mai! Hey, what's u-"

Before I could grab her attention and make my way over a jonin came out of the hokage's office and started addressing the kids, by now I was standing directly in front of him. He told us all to form a line and get ready to meet the hokage and receive our teams. Since I was already standing right in front of him I turned to face him as kids started lining up behind me. I followed the jonin back into the hokage's office. Once I entered the room I took my place off to the right of the desk to let other kids funnel in behind me.

"Should I introduce myself? Does he already know who I am?"

After all the kids that could come in did and as the noise started to fade I hesitated for just a split second before-

"My names Tsukai, Im honored to meet you Lord Hokage."

Shikkaru Nara




So this was it, the time had finally come. Shikkaru would be lying if he said he wasn't nervous about today, even though today was something he had been looking forward to for years. He was finally a full-fledged shinobi! Granted, he was a genin, the lowest rank, but his plans were finally coming to fruition. Standing in the waiting room, Shikka was choking on adrenaline, practically bouncing on the balls of his feet. The whole room was filled with energy, as the newly appointed genin sat there waiting for further orders. Realizing it might take a while for the adults to sort everyone out, Shikkaru took a moment to calm himself. Taking in a deep breath, he held the tension in his body, then let it go on the exhale.

Looking around for familiar faces, Shikka was able to pick a few of his acquaintances out of the crowd of kids in the room. It was nice being taller than most kids his age, made it easier to see the important stuff. Right as he spotted Tsukai, one of his academy friends, and moved to call out to him, a jonin entered the room and ordered everyone to file in to the Hokage's office. Noticing Tsukai was taking the lead, Shikkaru grunted and started pushing his way after him, no way was he going to let him take all of the spotlight!

Shikka managed to file in right behind Tsukai and made sure to give him a light punch on the shoulder.

"What's up squirt?" He whispered to Tsukai's back.

Normally, when he made fun of Tsukai's height, it lead to a friendly wrestling match or a light smack on the head, which he probably deserved. But in the presence of the Hokage, Tsukai wouldn't have that luxury, so Shikkaru made sure to send him a sly grin before bowing in acknowledgement of the Hokage. Since his friend introduced himself, Shikka figured he might as well too.

"It's an honor to be here sir, my name is Nara Shikkaru."

Mai Hyuuga




I stood in halls with other genin that just graduated with me and to be honest, I don't remember anyone names but that doesn't matter since i'm going to be teams with one of them. I look around from a sea of young genin and spotted some genin that I kinda know, there was a guy with black hair with blond dye, I think he a Nara and with those shadow techniques, it would help our team in some sticky situation. A other genin was the hokage son and from what I hear, his grades are not the best. There was also some another two genin, one with black pigtails with a sword and a another genin is just a big mystery.

As I was done looking around to all the genin and play with hair a little bit, a jonin came out of the hokage office and extracted everyone to head in the room so he can receive our teams. Once I entered the room, there was someone that I know all too well and that was Tsukai. He would always get to fights with other kids back from the academy and he would obnoxious loud in classes, I'm kinda surprise that he knows my name.

After Tsukai and the Nara was done introducing themself to the hokage, I stand up and walk toward the desk. "Hello Lord Hokage. i'm name is Mai Hyuuga, it very nice to meet you"

Shimura Kanzaki


Kanzaki stood quietly in the hall while the rest of her classmates milled about, dealing with the post-graduation emotions in various ways. Some talked amongst themselves, others shuffled about nervously, at least one person did a little dance, surprisingly not Mai, and were those two over there playing Jankenpon? She shook her head slowly. Not that it mattered much to her. Everybody had their own means of coping, and as long as they worked who was she to deride them?

Soon enough they were all being led into the Hokage's office, and one by one the various students presented themselves. Tsukai started off, followed shortly by Shikkaru and them Mai, bowing and introducing themselves one by one. She was next, she realized as Mai was wrapping up. Breathe Kanzaki, she thought to herself, It's no different than introducing yourself to anybody else of authority. You have nothing to worry about.

"Greetings my Lord," she said smoothly with a bow, "My name is Kanmura Shizak-"

She froze mid-sentence. She misspoke her own name! Ruby embarrassment flooded her cheeks, and she heard at least one of her classmates chuckle at her expense.

"Err, that is, Shimura Kanzaki. My apologies, Lord Hokage."

Okay, so she had something to worry about NOW.

Keizo Arata
敬三 あらた





Keizo waited patiently in one of the corners of the waiting room, leaning against one the walls with his hood up and hands in his pockets, he went into a bit of a day dreaming state as he tried to ignore the others that were around. Although he didn't really like crowds, this crowd was somewhat tolerable as he had been in class with them many times. This was not to be mistaken for any form of liking however, he really did not care for these people and although he knew it was harsh it didn't bother him one bit. Why get attached to a bunch of people who're excited to get into a world on the verge of war? They'll probably only die.

Keizo may have been young but even he knew what his purpose would be here...it'd be to kill other humans and die on the battlefield for their country. Honestly he couldn't understand who'd be excited to do this line of work, it made no sense...regardless...time would tell if they had the guts to make it in this line of work...although not even he knew what he'd see out there. Perhaps even he wouldn't make it in this line of work. All he knew was that this was just about the only thing that interested him, although that was only so he could become strong.

Keizo then snapped out of his dreaming state when a Jonin walked into the waiting room and called everyone in. He watched as the usual people who were giddy about this stuff got in first, before he knew it, it was just him and the Hokage's son left in the waiting room...which seemed odd as he'd figured the Hokage's son would be first in there to see his own father. Keizo then pushed himself off the wall with his shoulders and walked into the Hokage's office, watching and listening as everyone introduced themselves, he even noticed one of the taller boys lightly punch the shorter boy in the shoulder, he then noticed the girl he was stood next to mess up her own name...which could of fooled him seeing as he didn't even remember her name...and probably still wouldn't, which went for the rest also. He didn't remember any of their names, just their faces.

Keizo then let out a light sigh as it came to him to introduce himself, however there was no way he was going to bow...that was just embarrassing. He looked the Hokage in the eyes then spoke "Keizo Arata..." Honestly he couldn't understand why everyone was so nervous, this man was just that...another man, albeit a strong man he was still just a man at his core. Regardless he hoped that this would all be over quickly, it was starting to feel a little crowded in the Hokage's office and he just wanted to get out and train, maybe relax a bit before he had to return home.

Kuroda Jōichirō ( 黒田 城一郎 )




Why......




Jōichirō arrived with the rest of the crowd, being sort of standoffish. He scanned around the waiting room, noticing the same few people that he graduated the academy with. Most importantly, none of these people ever really paid him much mind. He has overheard his father speaking about having to put them into separate squads. Letting out a small sigh, he wondered why that is. He gets that teamwork is important, but he has never worked with these kids before, let alone go to war with them...

As the group filed into the Hokage's office as they were beckoned by the nameless Jonin, him and that one quiet kid were the last ones left. He was hesitant to make the first move. He did not want to seem eager. Yes, his father is the Hokage. Yes, he has been called a potential heir when he was born. Yes, he has been ridiculed ever since. So no, he was not too excited about the fact that he has to be in the same room with his father with strangers also present.

As the thoughts passed through his mind, he went into state of daydream, thinking of different jutsus and how to make the hand seals. When he snapped back to reality, he was the only one left in the waiting room. Standing up, sighing once more, he straightened himself out and entered the room, hoping to get the situation over with. After all, he had to see this man at dinner anyways...

Stepping through the office doors, he sees that the rest of the kids have already introduced themselves. He might as well do the same, even though he is certain his father knows who he is. Or so he hoped. "My name is Kuorda Jōichirō". His voice trailed off at the end, waiting to hear the incessant whispers that typically follows...

Kuroda Tesshin




New leaves are springing.




Sitting rather straight in his chair, the Hokage had a slight scowl on his face as the genins entered the room. Mentally taking notes about the newest recruits...

"The Uchiha kid... doesn't seem to have that...certain feel about him...Hm.. The Nara kid. Fuckin' hell he is on the tall side. I wonder who is taller between him and Jōichirō... A girl from the Hyuuga clan. The signature white eyes. She seems a little nervous... For fuck sakes, messing up your own name, just how menacing am I... Oh and the quiet one. He seems... unusually quiet.. I suppose..."


As he was quietly making notes about the kids, he notices that his own son sauntered into the office last. Giving him a small nod, he cleared his throat. Pushing back from his desk with his left arm and standing up, the action cause a very slight breeze to course around him, lifting his loose fitting haori. If one was looking hard enough, they can see a concave scar where his right shoulder should be. "Tsukai-kun, Shikkaru-kun, Mai-chan, Kanzaki-chan, Keizo-kun, and Jōichirō. It was very nice to meet you all. My name is Kuroda Tesshin. You may call me whatever you'd like." He said with a silly smile. "It has been brought to my attention that you have all recently graduated from the academy. My congratulations. You're now in my world now. This world is brutal, it is unforgiving, and it will beat you down constantly. But, it is not without its colors, and other wonders for you to behold." Lightly flipping open a ornate box on his desk, he moved from behind his desk to the front, facing the children. "This here, do you know the significance of what I now hold in my hand? " In his hand, he held a forehead protector engrave with the symbol of their village. "This represents our pride in Hokohagakure, and your dedication to it." With a small nod to Tsukai, the first one in line, he personally handed each children one headband, making sure to wink in the most cheesy way to his own son.

Clearing his throat once more, he looked to his personal assistant and gave a almost imperceptible nod to him, asking him to retrieve someone. "You may wear that protector as you see fit. I keep mine tied to my waist, but the decision rests on you. Now, as you know, we work in squads of three. Being that there are six of you, there will be two squads. I will be leading one squad while the other squad will get one of our best to lead them as well. He should be here shortly, but in terms of my squad, Keizo-kun, Kanzaki-chan, and Shikkaru-kun, you're with me." Give the three a small smile, he leaned back and sat slightly against his desk. "Oh and you guys can relax for now. After all, you all will be going on your first missions after we're done here. Would anyone like some tea? Or anything to drink?"

Hisaki Matsuo

ひさき 松尾





Hisaki was crouched on a tree branch deep in a forest far outside the Konoha, he was currently scouting out a very small village to gather some information on the whereabouts of a wanted Shinobi "Where the hell is this guy? This was the last place he was reported to be hiding out...tch...I can't waste anymore time here, my shifts up anyway...Pretty sure I had something to do anyway...something important" Before he could think further on the matter he was alerted to the presence of his replacement for the shift, the other Shinobi went to speak but was cut off by Hisaki "Shit! Graduation day!" with that Hisaki vanished from sight.

Almost instantly Hisaki appeared on the top of the Hokage's building, pulling the custom Kunai out the ground and spinning it on his index finger from his right hand he whistled before speaking out loud to himself "Phew! So glad I left this here in case I needed to get back, can't believe I forgot this was today" Hisaki made his way into the Hokage's building and towards the Hokage's office, walking in just in time to catch the Hokage smiling at the kids weirdly and offering them a drink. This made Hisaki chuckle as walked to the right side of the Hokage's desk, taking a quick glance at the kids that'd graduated then turning his attention to the Hokage before speaking

"You really shouldn't offer kids something to drink Hokage, their parents will be furious with you. tsk. tsk. you and your bad habits." Hisaki then took a quick glance at the paper on the Hokage's desk to try make out who was going where, he knew he'd be leading a Squad...just not of who since the Hokage usually left things like this to the last second. He then nodded to himself then looked towards the children "Seems I've got an Uchiha, A Hyuga and the Hokage's son on my team...my my, that's one hell of a team you're putting me in charge of" Hisaki then began rubbing the back of his head with his right hand, just realising he hadn't even introduced himself "OH! How rude of me! I totally forgot to introduce myself! I'm Hisaki Matsuo! It's a pleasure to meet you all" Hisaki decided to give the children a light bow, hoping none of them knew of his past and had only just heard of him...after all he'd gone to great lengths to try scrub out that past from even being mentioned

Tsukai Uchiha




Tsukai was just seconds from wringing Shikkaru's neck because of his snide comment in front of the jonin and Hokage. But all he could do was crack a hidden grin and pretend to ignore him. Once the rest of the kids came in they all started introducing themselves following suit. This made Tsukai smile, he liked when others followed his lead, then it occurred to him that they would have introduced themselves regardless of if he had or not which was kind of a buzzkill. He Watched Shikkaru and Mai introduce themselves, once it was Shimura's turn, she actually mispronounced her own name. Tsukai gave an audible laugh but then immediately silencing himself. That was both rude and unprofessional. He scolded himself under his breath.

"Well Im going to have to sincerely apologize later..."

While still semi-distracted he almost missed the next introduction, The kid that is always distant, come to think of it he didn't even remember seeing him on his way in. Looks like he graduated after all. Once hearing his introduction Tsukai had a hard time not turning around and staring at him in disbelief. He couldn't fathom someone being so rude while addressing the Hokage. Tsukai defiantly wasn't on good terms with that kid. However hearing the Hokage's son introduce himself to his own father was enough to ease Tsukai back into a happier mood.

With all the introductions be over with the Hokage stood suddenly and addressed them all, blowing Tsukai away with informality.

"Call him whatever we want? Someone is going to make him eat those words..."

He congratulated all of them on graduating which in response Tsukai bowed his head. Then listened intently to the rest of what the Hokage had to say. It was as if he was trying to scare them, But Tsukai had no fear. He was born ready for this. He had always wanted to be a great powerful ninja that no one could oppose. But before getting sucked into a day dream about what he would become the Hokage flipped open a small box on his desk that exposed the Leaf Shinobi Signature Headbands. Tsukai's eyes lit up, He stared without regret, He had wanted his headband for as long as he could remember. He must have looked kind of silly if it was even noticeable, But he didn't care. The Hokage walked to him first and offered the headband with an extended arm. Tsukai took the offering with a small bow and proceeded to hold the headband in almost shock. Once everyone had gotten one they were told they could wear them however they chose. Tsukai immediately tied his around his forehead. Right after, they were already onto putting the kids into squads. Shikkaru, Shimura, and that kid Tsukai was now committed to disliking were all on the Hokage's team. Tsukai was a bit peeved hearing that Keizo would be working with the Hokage and not himself, but he didn't let it bother him too much. With that team being announced that left himself, Mai, and None other than the Hokage's kid in a squad. He grouped up with them and introduced himself politely, Sharing a few words of greeting before turning to the Hokage.

"Excuse me, Lord Hokage, I must have missed my Squad number~ Could you tell us what it was again?"

His question went unattended because shortly after it had left his mouth another jonin walking into the room, joking with the Hokage about his kindness offering the kids refreshments. He stood there looking at the three of them rubbing his neck making a comment about how we would be 'Such a team' which made Tsukai's pride swell. After having him introduce himself Tsukai approached him and stood as tall as he could.

"Its a pleasure to meet you Matsuo Sensei. Im Tsukai Uchiha."

Shikkaru Nara




Shikkaru wondered if the architects of this building were rolling in their graves because of how many people were being cramped into the Hokage's office. He wondered if they all jumped in unison if it would be enough to bring the whole place down. Now, that would be one hell of an inauguration! Having introduced himself, he stood at attention as the other genin took their turns doing the same thing. He had to suppress a chuckle as Kanzaki stumbled over her words and almost said her name backwards. To be honest, any of them could have done that, he was sure they were all equally nervous, except for maybe Tsukai and that really quiet kid in his class, Keizo.

Shikka watched as Keizo ignored all formality as he talked to the Hokage, and felt a slight itch of irritation rise up within himself. He wanted to give the boy the benefit of doubt, mostly because he never showed much enthusiasm anyways. But seriously, if Keizo wasn't excited to be a shinobi, why was he even there? Shikkaru forced himself to let it go, it wasn't his place to judge other genin, that privilege was reserved for those of a higher rank.

Speaking of a higher rank, when the Hokage finally addressed them, Shikkaru was surprised by the man's informality. Normally it was disrespectful to address someone of such a high rank by their real name. Tesshin's bluntness also stood out to Shikka, which he kind of appreciated. Everyone in the room knew that their lives were about to become a lot more brutal. In times like this, it was either kill or be killed. In the end, what mattered was that he was willing to do anything for his village. After all, he knew exactly what he was signing up for.

Holding his forehead protector in his hands was a surreal moment for Shikkaru. And the full weight of this day finally settled down upon his shoulders, and for the first time, he realized he wasn't scared. He wouldn't allow himself to fear the future and what it may hold. Instead, he felt excitement and ambition rise up within him. He also felt surprise bubble up too, when it was announced that the Hokage himself was going to be training one of the teams of genin. Right as he was tying his headband around his left bicep, Tesshin declared that Shikkaru, Kanzaki, and Keizo were to be in his squad.

Shikka looked over at his two newly appointed squadmates and smiled. He wasn't sure how to feel about his assignment yet, mostly because he didn't know much about his new teammates. Sure, he had been cordial towards them in the academy, but hadn't really found the time to get to know either of them. And if he were to be honest, he was slightly bummed that he and Tsukai weren't assigned to the same team. But he also got fired up when he realized that they would have more opportunities to settle their friendly rivalry this way. Kanzaki seemed nice enough, if a bit anxious. And Keizo, well hopefully they would be able to warm up to each other, because Shikka had yet to see much emotion from the boy.

Regardless, he waved them both over, after hearing they were going to go on their first mission after this briefing. Everything was happening so fast! Maybe that was the point of all this, to keep them on their toes.

"Well this should be fun, eh? I know we all haven't talked much but I hope to get to know both of you better!"

He then turned the Hokage.

"Tesshin-sensei, since we're waiting, I'll take you up on that offer for tea." Calling the Hokage by his new title felt foreign, but he could get used to it in some time.

Mai Hyuuga




After everyone was done introducing themself to the hokage, he handed us some forehead protectors. As everyone was putting on their forehead protectors, I quietly walk out of the office and walk toward the girls bathroom, I peek in through the door and i sigh in relief that nobody was in here. I enter the bathroom and walk toward a mirror to see my reflection, as I stand in front of the mirror, I look down at my forehead protector in my hand and grip on it. Even though I manage pass the academy, I still can't believe I made this far, this is time I show them that me and branch house are much important, I wanted this, my sister wanted this...My brother would wanted this. I removed the bandages off my forehead to hide my....curse mark and tied my forehead protector around my forehead, I exit the bathroom and head back to the office.

When I headed back to the office, everyone have already team up with each other. I look to see that Nara, pigtails and mystery are on a team and their jonin is the Hokage, not to say that i'm jealous but...yeah ok i'm kinda jealous. I look around to see who is on my team, I guess I got Kuroda and....Oh Great, I got Tsukai, I guess it doesn't matter since we are going to be on the same team, I guess we have to get a along. I walk toward my team and wave at them, after I wave at my team, a jonin walk in the office and introduce himself, I walk toward him after Tsukai was done introducing himself to him. "...And i'm Mai Hyuuga, it nice you meet you Matsuo Sensei"

Yarin Hayashi
林ヤリン

'Shoot-shoot-SHOOT!'

Due to all of the excitement of Graduation day finally being here, Yarin spent a considerable amount of time trying to get to sleep the previous night. Eventually she managed to calm the butterflies of nerves and excitement dancing within her stomach to finally enter the village of slumber, however this lead to her oversleeping, causing her to wake up much later than intended...

Bolting through the respective building, Yarin's light but quick steps softly echoed throughout the hallways as she travelled as fast as she possibly could to the waiting room she was meant to have been in less than an hour ago.

'Heh, well I'm not off to a good start today, but atleast I'll get to meet the Hokage hopefully! If I'm not too late..' Despite the circumstances, Yarin's lips curled into a smile of admiration and excitement. She had worked extremely hard through the academy in order to graduate and show that she held potential, being late wasn't enough to dampen her mood on such an important day, especially since she knew she'd make it up to her superiors.

Halting once she reached her destination, Yarin quietly panted for a moment as she caught her breath. Listening intensely, muffled words came from behind the closed door to the Hokage's office, signalling that the meeting she was supposed to attend was still in progress. 'Yes! They're still here!' Her teeth took gentle hold of her bottom lip as she thought for a second about what she should do next. The best course of action for the moment would be to wait until the meeting was adjourned, hopefully she'll be able to catch the Hokage and sincerely apologise for her unpunctual arrival. Standing in the middle of the room with both hands clasped together and eyes glued to the doorway, Yarin patiently waited for movement, her warm smile still etched comfortably on her face ready to greet whoever would come out of the room first despite being intended for the Hokage.

Shimura Kanzaki






Kanzaki stood there along with the rest of her classmates as the ceremony concluded. Lord Kuroda responded to them, then came down the line handing each of them their Konoha headband- the symbol of the village shinobi. It had an odd weight to it, or perhaps it only felt that way because she knew what it was. It was both a symbol of merit to be treasured... and a burden to be carried, even unto injury or death. In a way it was similar to her sword, or at least how Suzaku-sensei had instructed her to view her sword. That made it easier to handle. She did not smile as she accepted it, like some others. Instead she bowed dutifully, thanked the Hokage, then tied it loosely about her throat like a necklace.

A short while later she learned she'd be studying under the Hokage himself in the three-man teams they all had known were coming. It was a bit shocking, discovering that the best shinobi in the village would be her instructor, but it was also sure to be a one-of-a-kind opportunity. She'd be paired with Shikkaru... and with Keizo. That would make things interesting. Truth be told, she'd barely interacted with either boy in the academy. Shikkaru because she'd never really had a chance to, but Keizo she'd actively avoided. He always seemed upset about something, and it always appeared that speaking to him was asking to have all of it shifted onto the speaker for no reason. But, she reasoned, there was no helping it now. She'd have to do as her sensei always said; surmount it, move past it, put it behind her. Just like her slip of the tongue on her name.

"I'm looking forward to it, Shikkaru-kun. Just some water for me please, Kuroda-sensei."

Keizo Arata
敬三 あらた





Keizo listened as the Hokage spoke, however he couldn't help but feel somewhat distracted and irritated by some of the dirty looks he was clearly getting just because he didn't bow and use formalities. This made his right hand twitch a little as he then cracked his index finger with his thumb, the crack was somewhat audible but only the keen listeners would have probably caught it. Honestly he couldn't wait for this to be all over, yet it was going to be a long day unfortunately as he had to go on a mission. He then accepted the headband from the Hokage and just stared at it for awhile, this seemed like such a pain to have...the one thing he really couldn't decide on was where to wear it.

Keizo continued to think about where to wear his headband...although the it was called a headband he really didn't want to wear it around his head so for the time being he just put it into his hoodies right pocket, he'd decide on where to wear it later on as he knew it'd be required of him. He then noticed...Shik-something waving him over, it was probably about time he actually maybe tried to at least learn the names of the people on his team...not that he wanted to but he was now going to be put into awkward situations with these people which he'd have to at least try make a little less awkward for himself. Keizo sighed a little then walked over to stand next to his squad.

As Keizo waited with his Squad he noticed a Jonin enter the room, the other teams leader presumably. Keizo studied the man for a moment, his high energy was a bit annoying yet he couldn't help but get an odd feeling from the man, however he decided not to stare for much longer as the man really didn't matter to him, he was to do with the other Squad. Still...Keizo couldn't believe he ended up on the Hokage's Squad...realistically that's like hitting the jackpot for most, yet he didn't feel much excitement from it...maybe just a touch as he'd be getting taught by what he figured would be the strongest Shinobi in the country...this of course meant he could potentially learn a lot and become strong himself.

Kuroda Jōichirō ( 黒田 城一郎 )




Well here we go....




Jōichirō waited his turn and listed to his father make the short speech about the world of the Shinobi. A world perhaps he knows more than his peers. His mother did not have too many stories to tell him about his father in his youth. What she did tell him was the graphic details of how his father was treated while taken as a prisoner in a foreign land. His father made sure she told him, and her objections fell on deaf ears.

The world of Shinobi, if someone was to ask Jōichirō, would sound like a place where friendships often end too soon, allegiances change in a heartbeat and deaths were as common and numerous as there are ants in the fields. If caught by a rival village, one is as good as dead to those they loved and those who love them back. One can even say it might be in their best interest to not have friends or get into anything too serious in terms of relationships...

Jōichirō was stuck in a small daydream while his father was handing out the forehead protectors. When it was his turn, he jolted very slightly, and accepted the item from his father without much of a bow or any actions showing gratitude. After all, he has been playing with the same protector that belonged to his father ever since he could lift it by himself.

As his father did a small roll call for those who would be in his squad, Jōichirō felt something. He didn't know if it was relief, annoyance, or what, that he did not end up in his father's squad. Oh well. He sees this man enough anyways... The Jonin his father had chosen to lead the squad he would be in arrived soon after. Hisaki Matsuo. Can't say he is surprise to see that his father chose him to lead the other squad. He did not know much about the man, other than the fact that he is definitely capable. " Hello Matsuo-San..." He said in a slightly shaky, but confidence voice. He glanced at the Uchiha kid. There was no way in hell he was going to let him show him up, in any way. Mentally and physically, he readied himself for whatever mission he was about to undertake with his new squad, that happened to contain presumed heirs to two of the most ancient families in Konoha...

Perhaps it was that Uchiha - Senju rivalry that has been in his blood for hundreds of years...

Kuroda Tesshin




Let's roll.




Taking in the drink orders of the two Genin, Tesshin filled two half-sized field canteens. One with tea that was flavored with a little honey and contained herbs like ginseng and mint, and the other with some clean spring water and handed them to the two that had asked for them.

The quiet one was still quiet.

Nodding slightly, he looked to Hisaki "Oi, young man. Here." He nonchalantly flipped him a scroll. But, the force behind it could be felt as a slight breeze. "Thats for you and yours. Enjoy~" His voice trailed off at the 'y' . "Now, for us. Kanzaki-Chan, I hope your good with your swords. Keep them near by, you might need them. The rest of you, stay frosty. We're in the real world now. No instructor will come by and stop the class if you're hurt. No time-outs. No take-backs. Keizo-Kun, when we come back, ramen is on me. We need to have a talk. Shikkaru-Kun, I look forward to seeing your shadow techniques in action." With a small smile, he continued, "Alright Team.... Team.... Ahhh I don't have a team name. For now, its Team One. A gold star for the one that comes up with a name we all like. Anyways, Lets move out. We've got a mission to do..."

With that, Tesshin headed out of his office, moving briskly into the waiting room. Spotting another graduate. "Ah. Yarin-Chan. I was wondering where you were. Come, we're leaving for a mission." Flicking his left wrist, another headband seemingly appeared in his hand out of thin air. The truth is, he had a wire attached to it, and pulled it to himself with it as he stepped out of the office. A subliminal move, but one that he pulled off with flawless execution. Handing the headband to the late Genin, he continued to move briskly out of the building.

@Kurisa You're up next

Hisaki Matsuo

ひさき 松尾

~Team 2~
@Tsukai @sassy1085 @Killbox





Hisaki stood quite proudly as the Shinobi selected for his team introduced themselves, it was a good moment for him! Not even a few years ago would he have imagined he'd be able to ever lead a team, let alone the next generation! "Ah Tsukai, Mai and Jōichirō. This seems like it could be a fine team! We'll be Team 2 for the time being" Hisaki knew how important this chance was that he'd gotten and to add to that, he'd been given a pretty important team of people who had the potential to be one of the greatest teams to ever come out of this village. As Hisaki stood there thinking about how good this team was, he was nearly caught off guard by the scroll coming his way, thankfully he snapped out of his train of thought and managed to react and catch the scroll, looking towards the Hokage as he did "Thanks! I'm sure it'll be something they will enjoy!"

Hisaki then turned his attention back to his team, noticing that the Hokage was now heading on out with his team, Hisaki opened up the scroll to see what the mission was, reading over it he tried not to let his face go grim...this...was not entirely what he'd imagined but he knew it'd teach important skills just...well..."Ah-ahaha well then! w-we best be on our way!" he laughed nervously as he began to rub the back of his head with his right hand and put the scroll away in a pouch in his jacket with his left hand "These kids are going to be so bored! I should've guessed this would be the type of thing we'd end up doing at the start...even I didn't have to do this sort of stuff!"

Hisaki took a deep breath then motioned for this kids to follow him as he opened the window "You're all good traversing building tops right? Let's get out of here like real Shinobi!" He then leapt out the window and made his way swiftly to a nearby rooftop and waited for his team. In truth he just didn't want to get stuck behind the Hokage's team but figured that they'd be able to handle this...if not then it'd be seen as some kind of training





(We will of course stick to the order of how things have gone so far. So it'll go Tsukai next, Sassy after him and Killbox after her and then myself, just to reaffirm)

Tsukai Uchiha




Tsukai waited patiently as the other two introduced themselves, However Joichiro didn't. He just greeted the jonin like he'd been a long time family friend. Which Tsukai couldn't disprove so he didn't give Joichiro too dirty of a look but he defiantly threw a sharp look his direction. To Tsukai it didn't matter if you'd known him before, all that mattered was that he was now the jonin in charge and you act like it. When he looked over to administer the look of disapproval he caught Joichiro already giving him a look. Tsukai reacted with a bit of surprise but then twisted his face back to seriousness. Just after, a scroll was sent across the room, caught by Matsuo. Due to the interaction between the Hokage and Matsuo it was bound to be their first mission.

As soon as Matuso Sensei opened the scroll Tsukai noticed a bit of disappointment flash across his face. Which gave Tsukai a nervous feeling, either we were given something so easy it will be boring, or we were given something so difficult that its possible Matsuo will only have a team for a day. They wouldn't give us Genin something so dangerous right? Tsukai's thoughts were coming through clearly in his facial expressions as he thought. As soon as he noticed he went back to his stoic usual, committing to do his best at whatever it was.

Matsuo Sensei announced their departure and with a deep sigh motioned for his team to follow. He threw open the window, briefly asking if the squad was used to traversing rooftops.

"Of course Sensei!" Tsukai called after Matsuo as he jumped to a nearby rooftop.

Tsukai moved towards the window first, noticing Joichiro was also trying to go first, Tsukai beat him to the window and climbed out, taking a leap and easily landing on the buildings top.

"So, Sensei? Whats our first mission?"

Mai Hyuuga




Before the Hokage and his team leave for their mission, he handed Matuso Sensei a scroll which I guess have our first mission objectives on it. When Matuso Sensei read the scroll however, his face look rather grim, I just hope that means we get a bored mission then the dangerous one where we all die on our first mission. Then Matsuo open a window and leapt out the window to meet us at the rooftops, before I could say anything, Tsukai excitedly leapt out the window as well which of course he did. After both of them leapt out the window and to the rooftops and left me and Kuroda at the office, I think to myself, I could use the stairs and save up my energy....But on the other hand, it look fun leaping out the window. I look at Kuroda while stretching to get ready to jump out of the window "Well, we can't keep them waiting up there all day. Come on." I say to Kuroda with a smile on my face as I leapt out the window and to the rooftops.

When I made it to rooftop where Tsukai and Matsuo are, Tsukai ask Matsuo about their first mission. "Yeah, is it a easy one or deadly one?" I ask Matsuo

Kuroda Jōichirō ( 黒田 城一郎 )




Tsk.

@Kurisa@Tsukai@sassy1085




Jōichirō's face remained stern, no matter what face the Uchiha gave him. As if a little stare down would phase him. "That Uchiha bastard..." Jōichirō thought as Tsukai beat him to leaping out of the window after their team leader. No matter, he should be able to catch up in no time, having spent a good deal of time on the rooftops running about.

"Sure, let's catch up to them." Kuroda said, in a normal tone, devoid of excess excitement or emotion.

Jōichirō ran after, and caught up with the group. The mission, true be told, did not pass his mind. Regardless, they're just Genin. What were they going to do? Some simple reconnaissance ? Help someone with some mundane tasks? Tsk. All these questions about what the mission is going to be. What does it matter? They have a task, they have to complete it. Thats all. Difficulty should only be a second thought, perhaps even third or fourth.

A devious idea sprouted in his mind.

When he caught up with the group, he got close to Tsukai. Perhaps a bit too close for comfort. But that is exactly where he had intended to be. When they would inevitably begin to move, Jōichirō would stick out his feet ever so slightly in front of the eager Tsukai in an effort to trip him.

Shikkaru beamed at Kanzaki, she actually seemed pretty nice! At least he knew one of his teammates could show emotion and communicate. Speaking of anti-social, Keizo slunk over to the group and maintained his stoic, quiet demeanor. Figuring that he couldn't force the guy to talk, Shikka just shook off his thoughts and graciously accepted the canteen that Tesshin-sensei gave him. Shikkaru watched as the Hokage tossed a scroll to Hisaki, Tsukai's new mentor, and raptly paid attention as Tesshin began to speak. It seemed as though it was time for their first mission. Shikkaru felt more energized than anxious, he had been training for this very moment for years. It would be embarrassing if he caved now, after all his hard work. He also noted that Tesshin-sensei implied he would most likely need to use ninjutsu during the mission.

Team One, eh? Has a nice ring to it, but Shikarru was sure he could come up with something better in time. On their way out, Tesshin-sensei a genin he hadn't noticed earlier to join their group. He remembered her name was Yarin right as the Hokage told her to come along. Shikka figured it wouldn't hurt to have an extra set of hands for the mission.

As he fell in step behind Tesshin-sensei, he took a pull from the canteen. "Mm, green tea is a favorite of mine... Is this Matcha?" Shikkaru gave the canteen an inquisitive look and then took another sip, enjoying the taste.

"So, Tesshin-sensei, what's our mission?" He asked curiously. A part of him hoped it would involve some ammount of teamwork between his new squad mates. It would give them a chance to work together and see if they had any sort of innate chemistry. Shikka was aware that sometimes his teamwork wasn't the best but it was something he wanted to work on, and what better time to do that then now?
