Don't own Naruto- enjoy the next segment of Zanpakuto of Kyuubi. I am literally one chapter away from catching up to the original story line. Ok... two. But who is counting?
*Edited* I had typed Umino Iruka. That was an error. he's thirteen. In this fic, his parents did not die, so... I will let you figure out what occurred and what is going to occur.
The letter currently being read in the person's hand seemed to be slowly burning into a crisp.
At least that was what the ANBU Captain of Unit A felt like telling the Hokage as he watched the paper currently being held in the hands of Tsunade.
Tracking down the Slug Sannin was an extremely tough task as she was constantly moving from place to place, day to day,she never stayed in the same spot for more than two days, leaving no trace of them ever being there. In fact, if it weren't for the fact that Sarutobi had a garment with her scent on it, and they happened to have a Inuzuka in the Unit, finding Tsunade would have been an entire month instead of the three weeks it took.
They were currently deep in Fire Country outside of a bar, where they finally caught Tsunade just as she was making her leave. Thankfully she was not heavily drunk, meaning she was not in a violent mood and did not rip the captain's head off his shoulders the minute she laid her brown eyes on the Konoha emblem.
Though she was really tempted to do so in all honestly. But after reading that letter, she knew without a doubt she would need to come back immediately.
'Sensei has A LOT of explaining to do when I see him,' Thought Tsunade viciously.
After what seemed like five minutes. Tsunade crushed the paper in her hand excruciatingly slow before she threw the dusty remains of the paper into the air before glaring at the Unit, the paper fading into the wind to be gone forever.
The ANBU squad tensed up at this movement. Preparation for this situation was one of the many options they had discussed. With Tsunade, it was common knowledge she did NOT want ANYTHING to do with Konoha.
But their preparation tactics were all for naught as Tsunade looked at her apprentice, Shizune and said nothing but six words.
"Shizune, We are going to Konoha."
Unit B breathed a sigh of relief as after a nerve wracking amount of time watching Jiraiya read the note, the Toad Sage instantly nodded in affirmation of whether he would be going to Konoha with them.
But they currently wished they had chosen the method in returning back to Konoha. The reason you ask?
The huge toad they were currently struggling to stay on was slowly making even the hardest and toughest veterans of the Unit B squad…
Nothing but the sound of the toad jumping and the wind could be heard as the members of Squad B watched Wolf calmly wipe regurgitated waste off of his mask courtesy of the ANBU member in front of him.
"Slug, that was downright disgusting. I am going to physically discombobulate you into an unrecognizable bloody pulp, I am seriously contemplating whether or not you did that on purpose. I am sure you knew that the wind would shift your vomit to land directly in my face. In conclusion, prepare yourself once we reach Konoha," Replied the currently vomit covered ANBU squad member in a monotone voice that promised death and a lot of pain and suffering.
Jiraiya would have chuckled at the situation if he did not have so much on his mind concerning Naruto, Kushina and the new found knowledge on his old teammate.
"I think I'm going to throw up again..."
On second thought… the toad was just getting Slug of the unit rather sick…and this was a rather funny situation.
"SLUG! YOU MOTHER…"
Hiruzen sighed as he made his next change. By now, Jiraiya and hopefully, Tsunade would be well on their way back to Konoha. As such, he had to do what needed to be done with the Council. It was time to make things known to them who exactly was boss and who was not.
Making his way to the Conference room, Hiruzen breathed in one time before exhaling sharply.
"It's time," he said to the anonymous person next to him.
"But of course…sensei," Replied the person as they handed Hiruzen the papers in their hands before they faded into nothingness, not one sign of ever being there.
Hiruzen smirked. But it was not one of those grandfatherly smirks he usually held, no. It was a vicious smirk, a smirk not ever seen on his face.
If anyone was to see this smile, they would instantly fear the coming storm of the Sarutobi.
But as no one was there to see this smile, Hiruzen was left alone and unbothered, free to cause wreck and utterly mess stuff up the only way an experience Hokage could.
Blackmail. Just like a Shinobi would.
It seemed people forget that Sarutobi was a Shinobi before a Hokage. A good one at that.
'The council has no idea what they are in for,' Thought Hiruzen as he opened the door.
The council at this moment was a bit confused. Where exactly were the Hokage's advisors? Usually they would be right behind him strolling in with a bit of elderly grace and confidence.
It seemed Hiruzen was reading their minds at this moment as he spoke.
"I bet you are wondering where are my advisors, in which the answer to that is rather simple," Said Hiruzen as he sat down and put his foot up on the table, bringing shock to many.
"They have been laid off," Said Hiruzen as if he was discussing the weather.
" YOU DID WHAT?" yelled out a civilian council member as he rose out of his seat in apparent shock at the statement made by Hiruzen.
"I believe I am the old man who should be asking what, but seeing as how you are also approaching the elderly range of age, which results in loss of hearing, among other things, I will repeat. After that, I will be pulling out more tricks from my Hokage hat. Now, Masahiro, I believe I said they have been laid off, the reason is rather simple, I have decided I have no need for advisers around the same age as me, especially when their services in their respective fields would be better used being taught to my ninja. As such, they will be the brand new teachers for a special course that is mandatory for every Shinobi and Kunoichi the rank Chunin and up. They will be educating my ninja in the world of politics, after all, who better then my ex-advisers, who knew the inner running and outer running of Konoha and more? Now, if you ever scream at me again, Civilian or not, you will find you will not have a box to channel your voice through, do not disrespect me. KNOW YOUR PLACE!" barked Hiruzen, who throughout the entire dialogue, moved from his relaxed, feet up on table position, to directly in front of the civilian, channeling a bit of KI to make Masahiro pale in fear.
"Now, I want quiet as I do what Minato, Tobirama and I should have done years ago but have not had the chance to, I choose now to do so."
Turning towards the window which showed a spectacular view of Hokage, Hiruzen smiled, unseen to anyone but the Hyuga Clan head.
"Tell me Shikaku, what kind of a village is this predominantly?" Asked Hiruzen.
"A Ninja village," replied Nara lazily, his analytic mind creating possible options as to where Hiruzen would be going with this question.
"Precisely, now, who fights the battle whenever we face war?" Asked Hiruzen again.
"Who teach the classes at the Academy?"
"Who goes out on the mission and brings in an astounding Seventy-five percent of the village's earning?"
"Great answers Nara. Now someone tell me…"
At this Hiruzen spun around and pointed to the left side, which currently had seven civilian council members.
" Why do I have SEVEN council members putting their ideas, views and thoughts into how MY village is run?" Said Hiruzen quickly.
"Who gave these people jurisdiction to take the earnings of my ninja and raise the village trade prices? Who gave these people permission to take fourteen percent of the money used to fund my ANBU and place it in treasury? Who told Shizuka she can live in a huge mansion sitting directly across from the Clan members when my ninja have been stuck in horrible lead infested houses, some struggling to pay rent?" Fired off Hiruzen as his anger peaked to another level as he took the hat off of his head and placed it directly onto the lap of Masahiro.
"Why has he been sitting in my seat when I am not here? Do you want to be the Fire Lord of Konoha Masahiro? If so let me know now, we can go out to the stadium and do battle for title of Fire Lord, I'll go easy on you too, shall I bring the bananas you said I should eat, how about I do to the banana what you said you would do when you thought I was not here? You don't look too well Masahiro. Are you ok?"
Hiruzen leaned down until he was nose to nose with Masahiro and smiled. Placing the folder he walked in with on the table and calmly opening it, showing pictures of Masahiro and Shiziuka in some...compromising positions, and began talking again.
"Do you need… perhaps… some more medicine from Shizuka that you got last night, I thought you were married but perhaps not, my apologies," Said Hiruzen as he slowly stood up and took his hat away, the Ninja of the Shinobi council all shocked and extremely close to laughing at the hilarity of this moment, Tsume Inuzuka even going as far as biting her arm to stop from howling in laughter and the Uchiha clan head, Fukagu Uchiha even coughing to cover up his laugh.
"Today. Today, this will all change. As of now, with the power granted by the Daimyo of Konoha, I Hiruzen Sarutobi disassembles the Citizen council. As of now, Hiroshima Shinji will be the spokesperson for the civilians, you have any issues you discuss it amongst yourself, and you bring it to him. Now, I want my money back in my shinobi's hand by midnight, or so help me Kami I will personally walk into each and every one of your houses and take my money by force, do I make myself clear?" Asked Hiruzen sharply.
The civilians were too petrified to even speak as this moment, everyone but Hiroshima Shinji, who smiled in amusement and bowed to Hiruzen.
"Crystal clear Hokage-sama," replied Shinji.
Hiruzen nodded in approval of his comment.
"You civilians may now take your leave, the continuing matters are for the ninja only, Shinji, I shall see you tomorrow to go over finances, continue to do the good and honest work you have been doing for years, you seven are dismissed," Said Hiruzen simply as he sat back down.
The minute the civilians left, which was rather speedy in all honesty, Tsume, Choza, and even Aburame Shibi howled, laughed or chuckled in laughter at the situation.
"I have been waiting for years to see you do such a thing Hokage-sama," Replied Chouza, a small smirk on his face.
"I too have been waiting for such a thing to occur. But the mannerism in which you completed such an expulsion was unexpected yet sufficiently satisfying," Said Shibi in his monotone voice, though if you really focused, you could hear the mirth in his voice.
"I am glad you all enjoyed the show, now comes the serious part," Said Hiruzen as he set his hands on the table and the atmosphere became extremely serious and businesslike, this was how the council should have been run. It would remain this way for years to come.
"First thing first, the academy regiment will be undergoing changes, in approximately three days we will have the new curriculum. This will be the new schedule for years to come. Secondly, I have requested the return of all Hunter Nin, Undercover nin and more for the new classes I have previously spoke of. Finally, I have called for the return of the Sannin," Said Hiruzen in conclusion.
The range of facial expressions was quite amusing for Hiruzen to see, from surprise, to approval, to confusion, to surprise and then finally shock, even Choza dropping chips and Nara looking rather awake from the announcements.
After a few seconds of silence, Hiruzen chuckled.
"In fact, one has been listening to the entire conversation from the start. Isn't that right?" Asked Hiruzen.
"Why yes, yes it is correct," said a voice from the shadows of the room. In a quick 'whoosh' sound, the person landing on the table in front of everyone, bringing outrage to the council.
"YOU!" screamed Tsume in a rage, ready to jump and attack the person.
The Kazekage read the letter sent by the Hokage days ago and let out a sigh of relief. If there was any reason to be happy of the current alliance between Konoha and Suna, now would be a great time to be thankful. The letter sent from Sarutobi stating they have receive word of their current mission deficiency and have begun taking measures to stabilize the flow and fairness of who missions went to between the two villages.
Patting the baby currently being held in the Kage's arms, a tear escaped the eye of Karura Subaku. The Godaime of Suna after the death of her husband, the fourth Kazekage who sacrifice his life to seal the one tailed demon into her child.
Another part of the letter spoke of how in a couple years, she should make a visit to Konoha to get her child's seal checked for any deficiencies as another sign of good faith, to which she herself agreed should be done.
Things were finally looking up for Suna.
The Mizukage stared at the full squad of MIST (Maximum Intelligence Squad of Termination) with a face of apathy.
"Exterminate anyone of any sort of bloodline. No mercy, I want them all exterminated. Rid the world of such demons, Go!"
In a second all three hundred members were gone.
Yagura, Mizukage of Kiri and Three-Tailed Jinchuuriki turned around to stare at the dark hall.
"I have done your will my master,"
"A good deed you have done my servant, go and rest my sweet," Said a silky voice to Yagura as he nodded and left the premises.
"Soon...revenge will be mine..." Said a voice as chuckles faded into the night.
Red eyes blinked once before becoming nothing.
Red Sharingan eyes.
In the room, which was heavily protected by the best ANBU and Trackers Konoha had, Kushina Uzumaki slept, unaware of the current state of Konoha or the things that were going to happen to her son, Naruto Uzumaki, or to her in the next few minutes.
The door silently opened up, revealing a figure, whose hands glowed an eerie green light, signifying medical jutsu being applied. By the person's feet were the unconscious bodies of the ANBU and trackers.
"Time to check up on this patient," Said the person, their glasses shining under the sheen of the midnight light.
(Konoha Conference Room)
"Whoa! Whoa! No need to be so hasty to kill me! I told you I was sorry about peeking on you all those years ago" Said Jiraiya, who stood behind Hiruzen as Chouza and Iniochi tried to hold back the irate Tsume.
"I am going to enjoy neutering you when I get the chance!" growled Tsume who forcibly took her arms out of the grasp of the people holding her and sat down with a huff.
Hiruzen sweat dropped before continuing.
"Now that we have Jiraiya here, we must wait for the other one, as no doubt, the other will arrive in…"
At that moment, the door smashed open and smoked filled the room as a figure was seen through the smoke standing there, and unconscious Nin in their hand. Softly tossing the Nin like paper, to which they rolled and slid across the Conference room table to stop directly at Hiruzen's hand, to which he simply patted the unconscious nin on the head and whispered a job well done, even if the nin could not hear him.
After a while of silence, the person spoke.
"Tsunade, what a joy to see you again," said Hiruzen with a smile at his student's eccentric entrance.
"Cut all the formalities; are you serious about what you put in that letter?" Tsunade asked skeptically.
"Extremely," Said Hiruzen.
"What is she referring to, if you don't mind me asking Hokage-sama?" Asked Fugaku Uchiha, his interest peaked as to what was occurring.
"Yes, Sensei, why don't you tell the group why HE is here in this room?" growled Jiraiya, his carefree expression vanishing, showing how fast he can become all business when the situation called for it.
"So be it, I must ask that everyone hear me out at this moment and do not interrupt me. I have specifically sent out Shinobi to handle secret missions as they are the best at what they do. Currently, Nin that you have viewed as dead, traitors and more, are in fact, still loyal Shinobi and Kunoichi of Konoha. Such as Rin, Rokusho Aoi, and more Shinobi to be named at a later date. One of those still loyal to us, despite the reports and information gathered on what he has been doing, is the final member to the Sannin. The only people who knew of this information are me, him and…"
Heads turned to the area in which the voice was heard from to gasp in shock and surprise as in strolled in the Daimyo of Fire Country. Next to him being the man Hiruzen had been discussing.
Twelve guardian ninja badge directly on his left arm.
"Orochimaru, one of my deepest undercover Shinobi for the past few years. Also personal bodyguard of our Daimyo," Said Hiruzen with a cocky grin.
'Yep, I still got it. They should know better than to question me and why I do things. After all, in the jungle they should know who runs all the monkey business.'
(One Year Later)
"How …is... he… doing. This?" Kakashi asked in shock watching the situation unfold in front of him.
"Well, think of his family and the answer should be pretty apparent," replied Rin as she held her hands out for the running one year old boy to come to her in laughter.
" Rhen, rhen, rhen!" Said Naruto in laughter, attempting to say Rin's name.
"Aww, he's so cute, I can tell you're going to be a stunner when you get older," said Rin as she held the laughing one year old boy.
Kakashi shook his head in amusement. One years old and already running and jumping, Naruto was truly the child of Minato as he began standing up at seven months and walking at nine. Like it or not, Naruto had the genes of Shinobi in him, if this amount of development was anything to go by, he'd be a powerhouse by sixteen.
Suddenly Kakashi turned to his left to see an ANBU personnel walk towards Kakashi. After handing him a paper, a swift shunshin and he was gone from the area, leaving Kakashi to read the note and see what the matter was. After skimming through it, Kakashi looked towards Rin and Naruto, who was also looking at Kakashi and smiled as Kakashi smiled at her.
"It's time to see the Hokage," Kakashi simply said.
"This mission must be carried out swiftly and secretly, we must evacuate anyone who wants to be evacuated. Leave no person behind, Do not get caught. If you are found out, I will not acknowledge that you took this mission or that I even assigned it. Do you understand?" Said Hiruzen.
"HAI!" Choroused the inhabitants of the room.
"Godspeed then to you all, get back safe and healthy," Said Hiruzen as Unit A through C headed out towards Kiri for their special assignment.
Heading out of the office, Sarutobi made his way to his office as he had a bunch of meetings today that had to be taken care of. Especially the recent news he had received from Konoha Hospital about…
Entering the office, Hiruzen had to pause a moment at the amount of pandemonium all over his office.
Books laid out amongst the floor, juice on his desk, ripped paper, loud laughing and four guardians looking on in mirth and amusement.
Yes. This would be the LAST time he ever arranged a meeting with the Uchiha Mikoto with Sasuke, Kakashi and Rin with Naruto and Hyuga Hiashi with Hinata.
"Kids…" said Hiruzen as a drop of orange juice landed on his head, making the three kids laugh.
"So, Hokage-sama, what is this meeting about?" Asked Mikoto as she picked up her son,Sasuke, who seemed to take well to little Naruto as the two had made the mess in the office, the only innocent one being Hinata. It was rather spectacular the rate of development for babies of Nin, Hiruzen thought to himself. Finally getting into business mode, Hiruzen made his way to his seat, in which even more paper was seen shredded, making it known one of the two had been sitting there.
As Naruto walked over the midnight hair colored girl, the three being left to their own devices, Hiruzen sat down with the four guardians.
"To get straight to the point, I have come across a bit of good news I figured you four would be the first to know, seeing as how the person has been a great factor in your lives and to my knowledge, you were the closest to her," Said Hiruzen.
Anticipation began to build in Mikoto and Rin while the tensing of the jaws of Hiashi and Kakashi were the only thing that could be seen in their features.
"To get straight to the point, Kushina Uzumaki…"
"GET OUT OF MY WAY!" yelled a voice from outside. Everybodies head turned to the door to see a bunch of commotion come from the other side before the door was opened and in came Tsunade carting in on a wheelchair, a pale looking woman with long red hair and blue eyes that seemed to change colors periodically. Looking at the kids for a bit, her eyes widened as she laid eyes on the one year old blonde haired child who was currently walking towards her.
The atmosphere was silent as the two looked at one another, one in curiosity and the other in rising joy at finally seeing her son, the dagger chain wrapped around his neck glowing bright red before dulling again.
After what seemed like minutes, which was really seconds, Naruto put his arms up in the air, as a signal for her to pick him up. With watery eyes, Kushina scooped up Naruto, albeit a bit slowly as her strength was not all there and began laying pecks to her son's cheeks.
"wed haire!" Said Naruto as he grabbed a fistful of hair and giggled.
"Yes, red hair Naruto, Red hair," whispered Kushina as she cried while holding her son for the first time,"
Tsunade and everyone else in the room smiled at the reunion between mother and son.
For that one second, all seemed to be right with the world.
But in the life of Ninja, one second was all that could be salvaged before everything left is disaster.
Screams and the sounds of battle could be heard in this cold village as the mother hid her child in the room, hoping for a savior from her deranged husband.
Just as the man picked up a knife and raised it to end her life, a kunai stuck into the man's throat, instantly killing him. As he crumpled over in death, an ANBU with a Cat mask walked up to the lady and offered his hand.
"If you want to be free from hiding for the rest of your life, take my hand and come with me," Said the man as he held his hand out for her to take.
After a while, she shakily took her hand,turning around to look for her child only to find her in the arms of another ANBU with a bear mask.
"We must leave now,"
Nodding his head, the two ANBU left the premises, leaving behind the melted ice sculpture of the room in which the child was held in, the Kekkai Genkai unknowingly activating in fear.
The Captain of the ANBU stared down the head of the clan of the Kaguya clan.
"You do not have to fight this battle, you can come with us and live to fight another battle another day," said the ANBU captain with a Rabbit mask.
The clan head nodded.
"I know. My pride will never let me leave a battle, I live for the moment to fight, I will die fighting, there is no such thing as a retreat for me. However, take the children of my clan, they do not deserve to die for something they have no knowledge of. Now you can move and let me die in battle or you shall be the one I battle. Choose your next movement wisely," Said the clan head as a huge stake made of bone came out of his hand.
After a silent staredown, the ANBU stepped to the side and let the clan members who wanted to fight to the death head off to do battle.
"Take the children, load them up and let us return to Konoha," said the captain, as the group found all the children and teens left behind, the captain saw a child locked in a cage of bone staring directly at him blankly.
Shocked at such barbarity, the captain walked towards the child and opened the cage.
"Do you want a new life?" Asked the captain.
The child simply stared at him blankly before simply nodding his head.
"Yes," The child replied, to which he was quickly scooped up and taken to the rest of his clan members for a new life and chance to make his own path in life.
Kimimaro Kaguya would be a name never forgotten. This small change in scenery would also be a change in the history of Konoha itself.
(Sarutobi Backyard - 3:00 Am)
Hiruzen sat down and calmly sipped his tea as he awaited the onslaught of questions to pour out of the two in front of him.
He was not dissapointed.
"How... What... When... and Why... did you neglect to tell US about the fact that HE," At this Jiraiya pointed at the equally calm Orochimaru also at the table with the three.
"Was actually a double agent working undercover and was actually scouting out the other villages for you and not a traitor to the village," growled Jiraiya in anger, Tsunade equally mad.
"Simple, I would rather you mad at me then you aware of the mission I assigned. Tsunade had her own troubles after the untimely passing of Nawaki and Dan, and you were occupied with the training of your students, why would I put that information, that vital information onto either of you. What if Tsunade got drunk and babbled away at that fact, what if you actually decided to seek Orochimaru out when he was on one of his dangerous scouts? IN fact, if you think about it, Orochimaru becoming 'traitor' was the best idea ever, especially when you supplied me with all of the information about his recent movements when he could not relay messages to me," Said Hiruzen with a smirk on his face, watching Jiraiya's face turned from anger to contemplation and finally begrudgingly Jiraiya nodded.
"You always were three steps ahead of us," Said Jiraiya.
"Make that five, I have ridded my advisers and requested for you three to return immediately for a reason," Said Hiruzen, his eyes becoming a bit unfocused in thought before he looked at them one by one.
"I had a dream, a very scary dream of how things would become like had I not done things immediately, it all came down to the fact that if things continued on, unchanged and looked into, Konoha would fall. Never to recover for decades, I simply had no plans of seeing my village get raped and pillaged, so I decided it was time to change. But I need people I trust, and unfortunately, you three are all I got. As such, I am going to ask that you three stay in Konoha. Tsunade, your dream of raising Medical ninja and having them on three-man teams, I have begun making changes to allow you to have that achieved, in the new curriculum, I want your apprentice, Shizune, to teach a medic class, from there you can choose the most potentially fit student and train them. Orochimaru, I want you to run Interrogation and Experimental Discovery for Konoha, your knowledge is exceptional and what we need to exceed expectations. Jiraiya, I want you to train my Hunter Nin in espionage and hunting, there is none more proficient then you in this matter. Finally I want you three to find three others with potential as you will train them," Said Hiruzen as he took another sip of tea.
"Train them to do what?" Asked Tsunade.
"To take up the mantle of Sannin of this generation," said Hiruzen, making Jiraiya choke on his tea, Tsunade smirk and Orochimaru raise an eyebrow.
"There is more... is there not Sensei?" Asked Orochimaru suddenly. Hiruzen chuckled, he knew he had chosed the correct person for interrogation immediately from that simple question.
"I want you three to take up a new job now open,"
Jiraiya sighed, already figuring out what his sensei wanted.
"As my advisers,"
The field was silent other then the sounds of the cricket in the garden and the sound of water flowing throughout the backyard.
After a while, Orochimaru put his cup down and looked at his sensei.
Tsunade seemed to be at odds with herself, battling with the decision before finally sighing.
"What's the worst that can come of this, I accept," She mumbled.
Finaly Jiraiya stood up and put his hands in his pocket, turning around, he silently walked off before turning around and looking at his sensei.
"You've got my acceptance, as long as Tsunade shows up in meetings with a bikini on," Said Jiraiya, perverted gleam in his eye.
Only to get cracked upside his skull with the thrown teacup courtesy of Tsunade.
"All these years and you're still a perverted toad," Said Tsunade, though Hiruzen and Orochimaru noticed, the sentence had no malice or anger.
It had a hint of happiness.
After years and years of being away, Team Sarutobi had reunited like they never left.
(Konoha Stadium - One Week Later)
Hiruzen stood up from his seat to address every single Konoha Shinobi under his reign. He had a few things on his mind that needed to be said and as Hokage, he would for the benefit of his village and underlings.
"Kuniochi and Shinobi of Konoha, as Hokage of this village, I feel it is only right that I inform you all of the recent changes the Village will be going under. This is all for the focus of maintaining this village as one of the most powerful ninja villages in the elemental country," Hiruzen continued.
"The civilian council is no more, we will have one representative from the Civilian council in meetings at all times concerning the village matters. However, all matter dealing with the Shinobi will be between the members of the Shinobi Council, with any news worth knowing being told to the representative of the Civilians. Any ninja, Chunin and up, will be partaking in a class on Politics taught by my former advisers Homura Mitokado and Koharu Utatane. In one week, all Chunin Shinobi and Kunoichi will be asked to come back to this stadium for a one-week course in proper political resources, knowledge and etiquette. This is not debatable, any Chunin found not to attend will be demoted to Genin effective immediately. You will be notified as to the time of the lesson. The week after will be Jounin, then Hunter Nin. Next, The Academy lesson plan has been changed to further edify our young and turn them into soldiers. The curriculum has been modified as such," Pulling out a scroll and unfurling it, Hiruzen continued with his speech.
"Children aged three to four of major clans or any family wanting their children to be ninja, will be entered into pre-school. This will teach the children the importance of group interaction, and how to cooperate with other children the same age, in addition to young and proper etiquette. From there they will enter what I call secondary pre-school from age five to six, where they will begin to pick up on the history of Konoha, which takes away the need for most of the lessons taught in the old academy curriculum. They will also be introduced to the beginning of identifying Hiragana ( a basic component of Japanese writing system) in addition to many other lesosns monumental to the development of out Shinobi."
"From then on they will enter Kindergarten, preparing them for the life of a Shinobi, after kindergarten will be an entrance test to balance out and learn what exactly the student should be taking once they actually reach the academy. From there, the academy will be split into eight classes taught by eight teachers in the following:
Genjutsu teaching taught by Karuma Clan members
Medical training. The teacher will be announced at a later date.
Kenjutsu teaching taught by Hayate Gekkou
Taijutsu teaching taught by Maito Gai
Ninjutsu teaching taught by Shushi Uchiha
History of the Hokages taught by Umino Ichigo
Chakra theory taught by Ebisu, and gym (otherwise known as field training/D-rank missions and endurance training) taught by Inuzuka clan members," Hiruzen read.
"As such, D-Rank Missions for Genin are hereby terminated. As the final year of academy will be spent making their own money as they are called to do so. With this new curriculum, I higher range of missions will be available for Genin, Chunin and Jounin. We will begin this curriculum the upcoming semester to see how effective it is," Stated Hiruzen.
So far, the entire group shinobi were going through emotions such as shock, to amazement, to awe, to satisfied, to proud and finally joyful. Things were finally starting to look and become great for Konoha.
But now was time for the finale to the meeting, and one that would surely shock the group.
"My final announcement is that I have recalled many of our ninja both in hiding and both out handling secret missions for me. As such, returning to Konoha for the time being are students trained personally by me. You will see them around the village, either in the hospital, in our research and interrogation rooms or our sealing chambers, so please do not be alarmed," Hiruzen stepped back and put his hand down towards the stadium floor, where at the moment nobody was seen.
Suddenly three figures were seen landing in the middle, with long black cloaks. One by one they removed their robe hoods to reveal white, black and blonde hair repsectively.
The Shinobi in the stadium seats gasped in surprise at the apperance of the three. Some out of knowledge of what they had done in the Third Shinobi war, some from the gossip heard about them and others at seeing them in the same area at the same time.
" I present to you all the return of The Sannin," At this Hiruzen smirked again, ready to drop another bomb.
"Also my brand new advisors,"
About half of the Shinobi and Kunoichi fainted in shock.
Nothing like schooling the Konoha Shinobi in surprises.
Seems sufficient enough for this chapter no? let me know pronto any errors I have made so I may come back and change them as needed.
A few more changes to Konoha and then we will finally introduce our favorite blonde hero and he shall take the story away as promised.
