The blades of vengeances have fallen swiftly. The shinobi are no more as 'Absolute Justice' has returned...now, it is the Samurai that rule the Five Major Nations!
But at what cost? Have they become the very thing that they despised the most...? Heroes and villains seem to change roles every day, but one thing is for certain - we yearn for our freedom, for days gone by where we flew the skies unhindered.
A checkpoint consisting of a bright red awning, a banner, and a table with 2 workers and boxes and stacks of paper sits 10 meters in front of a large stage with a microphone. After handing registration papers, qualified participants are ushered into a roped in area just in front of the stage to separate them from the spectators.
Behind the stage , a wooden pathway leads to a door to the arena, however, what awaits contestants is a mystery. It is to be noted that once participants enter, their profiles are considered ‘locked’ and they may not use anything added after they post in this thread. The fiery haired proctor is nowhere to be seen. . . yet. However, she will appear to address players after the last minute preparations are made.
Tanzaku Gai was definitely another breath of fresh air, and was different to both Kusagakure and Mizu no Miyako. Tanzaku Gai was a bustling city, unlike any Ujiyasu had ever seene would likely be considered a Missing-Nin and hunted, he would have visited this city more often.
After a brief stop at a local restaurant, and after getting directions from some helpful townsfolk, the young Kusa Genin made his way to the place where the registration for the Chuunin Exams would take place. A quick look told him that the place was bare... for now. Now doubt that people would begin to flock to the place soon enough. Genin generally aspire to become Chuunin, and the Kage do seem to like their bragging rights with their rookies. It'd be a huge surprise if Ujiyasu was the only one who registered by the time they start.
A man clothed in a beige gown of sorts spotted the boy and approached him, taking note of the headband.
"Ahh, you must be here for the Exams, right?"
"Yes, I take it this is the place?"
"Indeed. I just need you to fill out this form, and then we'll take you to the waiting zone."
Ujiyasu accepted the paper the balding man gave him and filled out the required fields, before handing the form back.
"Thank you... Ujiyasu. If you would please come this way."
The wild-haired Kusa Genin walked behind the guide as he led the boy to the roped off area, close to the stage. guess I could take a nap before things start... if they start.
"Alright, please wait here until the Exams are ready. We're just preparing things now but your proctor shall arrive when it's time."
Ujiyasu bowed at the man and entered the bordered off area, where he picked a spot to the left of the centre, and sat down. He began to think about what to expect, and to plan ahead.
Name: Nakamura, Ujiyasu Village: Kusagakure Mission Count: 14 Missions. 6 D, 7 C and 1 B EXP: 3,530. 2,980 if the EXP in Takumi don't count.
Being woken up from his nap by the voice of the proctor, the same fiery-haired woman who originally was going to proctor the last exams he went to, he noted that no-one else was in the roped off zone.
No-one else had registered.
The deadline seemed to have passed as the kunoichi on the stage announced that he had been promoted to Chuunin... simply by turning up. While some could apply some stigma to this circumstance, the note did say that punctuality and adhering to instructions was one thing expected of Chuunin, not just critical thinking and combat prowess.
The proctor disappeared, leaving the area as is, no doubt for the next exams. After all, they didn't get used. As for Ujiyasu, he picked himself off the ground, dusted himself off and had a quick look around Tanzaku Gai again. He wasn't going to waste the trip, not that the result was wasted anyway.
After a few hours of taking in the sights of the city, Ujiyasu left Tanzaku Gai and prepared to leave for Kusa no Kuni.
