16th Entry: Um...

Konoha_cop here!
Um, well...nothing much has happened. The situation is still the same. I am about to go on holiday and well, Kakashi is not back yet either. Again, I apologize. All of our shinobi seem to be either on a mission or on vacation. And I am the only one left here! And it's been crazy! I still have holiday shopping, and I really need a break. Ninja's need breaks too you know? I barely get out, being an office ninja. Kakashi travels everywhere. He LOVES to travel. He comes back with tons of photos from ALL his trips. like this...

(Kakashi on leave earlier this year. Location CLASSIFIED)

He's looks relaxed no? Last place I went to was to the Konoha hot springs, like what 5 years ago? And that's only 10 blocks from the office!!!! But I am not bitter...(cough)
Ahh, A little off topic there, gomen.
Well then since here is nothing to report, I am off to get my shopping done before I set off to visit my folks. Next week is Christmas, I am sure something will happen by next week! ;-)
Seasons Greetings!
over and out!

15th Entry: Speculations and Holiday Greetings

Yes it's Konoha_cop once again!
I know everyone is eagerly waiting for Kakashi. Please bear with me until we can get back word from him.
Their has been much noise coming from the unfinished bridge structure since my last report. Reports of flames, explosions, and a lot of screaming. Which has may authorities concerned, but still fearful of entering the area while the mist is still present. The strange ice-like structure is also still standing, and Naruto was seen entering the area as well.
Not much can be done until the mist clears in order to get a good assessment of the situation.
So this leaves me at a loss of information, and I apologize.
Well, since I don't have much to report and the holidays is fast approaching. I have decided to post something a week early. Kakashi sent out his Christmas card to everyone early,before he headed out to wave country. (So on top of things that guy!)
And he let me know that it would be OK for me to post it on the journal if he doesn't get back in time for the holidays.
So might as well as well do it know, right?
So Happy Holidays! From myself and Kakashi-san!

Farewell till next entry!

14th Entry: This just in.....

Greeting Konoha_cop here with more breaking information.
There still is a strange mist surrounding the uncompleted bridge in the Wave country. Everyone has been told to stay away for their own safety. We know that Kakashi-san and Team Seven are currently present there. Also the renegade ninja Zabuza is there along with the masked boy who has been now been identified as Haku also from the village of the hidden mist.
Now authorities have also just spotted another strange occurrence at the bridge. A strange looking structure that has been described as giant pieces of ice. We have no idea what its purpose is. We can only assume is is part of some unknown justu.
(This pic was taken by a local patrolman on a boat near the bridge.)

In another news Naruto has been spotted leaving the bridge builders home, where Tazuna’s daughter Tsunami was the victim of a failed kidnapping. Two samurai were found tied up. Their son Inari was found unharmed at the scene.

Well, unfortunately that's it for right now. Hopefully thing will clear up soon, and we will hear from Kakashi or someone from team 7.

Over and out!

13th Entry: More Mist in Wave Country

Greetings!!! Konoha_cop back once again!
Shortly after Kakashi's last report and post, Intelligence received some strange messages from Wave country through various sources. There is supposedly some strange commotion going on at the location of the new bridge being built there (Tazuna's Bridge we assume). Local news and eyewitness who have fled from the scene said the their was a massacre, and that two individuals described as ninjas were present. "One with a freaking massive sword and some kid in a mask" according to an eyewitness.
One worker from the bridge who managed to escape told local authorities the two killed all the workers then just vanished. Shortly after that a strange mist appeared in the vicinity of the bridge. Most folks have been to scared to approach for fear of their own lives and now people have been told to stay away all together. Before that, one passer-by managed to take a snapshot of the bridge in it's now misty state.

It is hard to tell from the photo, but we are pretty sure that the people present are Zabuza some other unknown person, Tazuna Sakura, Sasuke, and Kakashi-san. Naruto seems to not be present at this location for some reason. We are currently working with local authorities to see if we can find out more, and possibly send help, but it seems the people of wave country are not very easy to deal with as far and information gathering. So as soon as i can get more information about the state of things, I will let you guys all know!
Thanks for your patience!

12th Entry: Trees and Heros

Well I am feeling a whole lot better now (after taking some meds that Tazuna-san gave me, but I'm about ready to take the camera away from Naruto)... I'm back to full strength and finally free of my crutches today! I have been hobbling around on one crutch the last couple of days and it just feels more bothersome than useful.
Tazuna’s bridge is almost complete. Naruto and Sasuke have finally master climbing trees using their chakra. I must say they have really impressed me with their dedication. My only wish is that Naruto would stop goofing off so much. He gave me a fright when he tried to play a joke on me and Sakura yesterday, by pretending to fall off a high branch. Afterwards from laughing so hard at his own joke, he actually did fall off. Sigh...
Later that night though, I did see a different side to Naruto at the dinner table. Inari was upset and was yelling at Naruto, and well, Naruto snapped and told him off. He said that he should stop being a victim, and quit crying like a baby. It was a bit harsh, but understandable.
So I took the chance and I went to talk to Inari, who had run outside to sulk again... I tried to explain to him, that Naruto was not trying to be mean, but trying to help. I told him how Naruto didn’t have ANY family and never had a single friend growing up. And how I have never seen Naruto complain or cry even once because of it. Naruto is always doing his best to get people to acknowledge him because he probably is sick and tired of crying. And even thought he is young, Naruto understands what it is to be strong. He probably understands how Inari feels, what Naruto said to Inari is probably something he had said to himself many times when he was younger. I hope what I said to Inari helped, and it also made me think more about my role as the leader of this team.

Ah well, it's morning now and it's time to head off to the bridge, Sasuke, Sakura and I will be accompanying Tazuna to the bridge. I gave Naruto the day off, because I think he can't move, using up all of his chakra climbing trees the night before. I couldn't even get him out of bed. Hopefully Naruto will get some rest and all will be well.

Jya' ne!

11th Entry: Kids

Yo~ I'm feeling a lot better today and decided to get up and have dinner, I gotta admit Naruto and Sasuke are doing quite well on their training from what I've seen. They both actually threw up at the table today, sigh... I'd never thought I see the day where Naruto and Sasuke would be on the same level. But I'll admit I think Naruto brings out Sasuke's good side and vice versa. Their competitiveness is actually building up good training discipline but they have to understand barfing will not help strengthen chakra hahaha. Sakura on the other hand has done quite well with her training so I have placed her with Tazuna-san on guard duty. She tells me that Wave Country is really hit bottom and that the people are struggling hard to stay on their feet. Tazuna-san believes that the bridges completion will bring hope back to the people of Wave Country. It seems that there used to be a hero once who lived here and inspired the people his named was Kaiza. He was killed by Gatoh and his henchman, hmmm... In anycase Inari-kun seemed to have lost all his hope and dreams as of most of the people here. I guess I can relate with the kid... Loosing his dad like that, ah.. maybe I'll have a chat with Inari-kun later. Naruto may be of help too, seems he's all out to prove that heros do exist to the kid. Hmm Kids... Well before I go lay down again, here's a pic of the construction site I took while I was out walking today. Oh and that pict on the top was taken by Sakura from the dinner table, sigh, looks like I still need rest...

Jya na~

10th Entry: Recovering...

Jyan, I'm back sorry about being late, we ran into a few complications on the way to Wave Country. Sakura told me she filled everyone in while I was unconscious, so there is no need to repeat myself. (Though I may have to go over filing report procedures with her, keeping it formal and none of the heart stuff, girls of that age... sigh). OK I need to make this brief cause I still feel pretty awful. My head is POUNDING... All I have been able to do is lay here...I couldn't even stop Naruto from taking this embarrassing photo of me in bed. Grr... I gotta get back into training myself... Actually, now that I think about it's a pretty funny shot (so was the one by Sakura). Might as well put it up.

Don't want to discourage Naruto and all, I gotta admit I like the framing. Still though, If I were able to move, I would have 1000 years of pained Naruto good...*sigh* It's been a long time since I have had to use the Sharingan, and I guess I overdid it. I've got be more careful next time. May end up in worse condition or something.

So after all is said and done, I am pretty sure that boy in the mask was not a Hunter-Nin or at least not anymore. He saved Zabuza. Hmmm, I wish I had caught on sooner and finished off Zabuza myself, but in a way it did show that Naruto and Sasuke can work together. Oh well, now I have to make sure that all of us are ready, I have a feeling Zabuza may be back. I may not be able to move much right now, in fact I have been wobbling around on crutches. It's pretty bothersome. But I can at least prepare Saskue, Naruto, and Sakura. I demonstrated to them the importance of good CHAKRA CONTROL, and with a very simple task they have to do. Climb trees, without using their hands! Now if they can master this skill it will be great. They all have amazing potential and will be very valuable shinobi once they get thru this hurdle. So far Sakura has shown the best at controlling chakra and stamina. It's very good this way. It makes it easy for me to make those other two feel shamed for being beaten by a girl, and hopefully motivate them to do better. So Far as expected aside from Sakura, Sasuke got pretty far up, here's a picture of how high he got. Looks like maybe two or three story high... Not to bad.

Though out of the three, I know Naruto has the greatest potential, I just hope he learns to focus better because well, he's been falling on his head all day. Sigh... (good thing he has a hard head). Ok I will end it here because I feel awful and I need to lie down.
I'll report in again later, ugh don't even feel like reading... ZZzz

9th Entry: Confirmation from the Wave Country!

OK, We finally heard back from Team 7! It turns out the bridge builder Tazuna had a hit put out on him, and has been targeted by renegade ninja. Upgrading what should have been a "C Ranked" mission to at least a "B Ranked" one. They were confronted by the "Demon Brothers" (who where dispatched by Kakashi). And then later by none other then "Momochi Zabuza!" It is reported that a battle ensued between Kakashi's Team and Zabuza and ended with assistance from an ANBU (Assassination and Tactics Special Squad or Ansatsu Senjutsu Tokushi Buta in Japanese) from the hidden "Mist Village" who showed up suddenly towards the end of the battle killing Zabuza. The ANBU left with Zabuza's body and shortly thereafter Kakashi collapsed. This information was sent to us by Haruno Sakura member of team 7, (using Kakashi's laptop) who was present for the entire encounter. Attached below is the full report in her own words via E-Mail with pictures.

This is Haruno Sakura reporting for Team Seven!

Kaka-sensei has collapsed and our mission has run into some serious problems. I really do not know what to do!!! Please send help. I am starting to doubt that we are ready to take on this such a mission. Are we really qualified now to do this? We are only genin and now all this has happened. We might not be able to handle this by ourselves...*.*;;

Apologies for the freak out, I'm just really frightened. Let me start from the beginning.

We had just just left home to go on our mission. In the beginning, it was all normal. There were no real enemy encounters, Naruto was being himself (ie: stupid, dramatic, and totally uncool), and the rest of us were just on a semi-low level of alert (which is was appropriate for a C class mission). All of a sudden something crazy happened! Two ninjas attacked us! I ran to Tasuna-san's side in order to protect him. Kaka-sensei started to fight the ninjas but it seemed as if they killed him. The two then moved on to attack Naruto but he froze and <3 Sasuke-kun <3 saved him ^-^ (he is sooo cool)!! I made sure that the old man was safe (so I had no time for pictures, sorry). Mid fight it almost seemed as if it was going to be the end for Tasuna-san, Sasuke-kun, Naruto, and I but Kaka-sensei finally reappeared and captured the ninjas! It was AWESOME! Kaka-sensei is so amazing!

Naruto was poisoned a bit from a cut one of the Ninja's gave him which almost made us turn back to Konoha so that we could treat the wound. But he got all dramatic again (sigh..typical) and said that we should continue on. Luckily, no one else was injured..... but the fight with the two ninjas raised a couple of issues.

On the boat we took toward the Wave Country Kaka-sensei asked Tazuna-san the real reason he decided to have ninja's protect him. It turned out that Tazuna-san was wanted dead by a guy called Gato, who was hiring ninjas to kill him. It now became clear that this was no ordinary C class mission. This was a B-class.. or A-Class rather. Normal genin aren't supposed to be assigned these types of mission. We should have went home after hearing that, but there was no way we could leave the old man stranded. Even though deep inside I felt weird about that decision I went along with it.. at that point I figured that Kaka-sensei knew what he was doing.

We continued our trip to Wave Country by boat, it was kind cool and romantic, I got to sit next to Sasuke-kun ^-^! As we approach land we get to take a look at the unfinished bridge. We then got off the boat and started walking toward the village that Tazuna-san lives. On the way there Naruto starts being stupid throwing kunai's everywhere like the freak he is and almost killed a poor rabbit. That Naruto he's so noisy sometimes! But, sadly Naruto's obnoxious need for attention was the least of our problems. A couple minutes later, there was another attack. This time by a really scary looking guy Kaka-sensei said was Momochi Zabuza, a "missing nin" who was definitely Kaka-sensei's fighting level. We were told not to get ourselves involved with this fight. Kaka-sensei then uncovered his left eye to show what Sasuke-kun called a Sharingan. Zabuza apparently heard of Kakashi before saying that he was the ninja known to have copied over 1000 jutsus using this special eye. I never would have thought that our sensei was that cool!

I felt so helpless during the fight between Kaka-sensei and Momochi Zabuza. I tried to believe in sensei and it seemed as tho he did have complete control of the situation but then Zabuza trapped Sensei in some kind of water bubble. At that point Kaka-sensei told us to run for it, but it was clear to us that that we would just get killed if we did that anyway. I was really scared yet there was nothing I could do. Just when it seemed like all was lost Naruto and Sasuke-kun managed to free Sensei from the water bubble!! Once that was done Sensei used his "Doujutsu" to stop Zabuza. And then just as Sensei regained control of the situation and was about to finish Zabuza off a young Hunter-nin, about the same age as Naruto, Sasuke-kun, and I showed up and killed Zabuza himself. He then took Zabuza's body and disappeared. You would think that this would make us really happy (which it did for me at least) but somehow Naruto was infuriated with the Hunter-nin because he felt weak compared to him. I just don't get that.... sometimes boys can be sooo dumb when it comes to certain things! Anyway just as we started to head out Kaka-sensei froze in his tracks and collapsed right on his face!!!

As of now, Zabuza is gone but so Kaka-sensei (for the meantime). We are still here in Wave Country and there's no way of telling what's to come. There isn't much time to prepare. I don't see us completing this mission with Kaka-sensei out like this. Please send help if you can!

Haruro Sakura, Team Seven

P.S. I was so useless during Kaka-sensei's fight with Zabuza I took some pictures and which are attached it to this e-mail.

---------- End Forwarded message ----------

So there we have it, we are trying to find some back-up for Team 7 but most of the upper level ninja's are already assigned to more important missions. Hopefully Kakashi-san will return to normal soon. Here are the rest of the pictures included in Haruno's E-Mail.

8th Entry: Kakashi The Sharingan User

Greetings again! Konoha_Cop here.
Unfortunately we have yet to hear from Team 7 and their current mission status in the Wave Country.
We can only speculate on whether they have run into any of the "Rouge Ninjas" reported in the vicinity.
Since we have yet to here back from Kakashi-san, I thought it might be interesting to take this opportunity to fill you in a few lesser know facts about him. I was able to declassify a small amount of information on him from the Ninja Registry Office.

Name: Hatake, Kakashi
Ninja registration number: #009720
Country: Fire Country, Hidden Leaf Village
Age: 26 Height: 181 CM Weight: 67.5 KG
Birthday: September 15th
Bloodtype: O
Sign: Virgo
Father: Hatake, Sakumo (AKA: White Fang)

Kakashi graduated from the academy at age 5 and became a Jounin by the age of 16.
He trained under The 4th Hokage (Status: K.I.A.), also known as the "Yellow Flash". Kakashi's three man team included, Uchiha Obito (Status: K.I.A.), and Rin (Status: N/A)

It is said that Kakashi had gained his "Sharingan" eye around that time.
The Sharingan is an ultra rare special ability known to exist only in members of the "Uchiha Clan". The Sharingan, literally meaning "Copy Wheel Eye", its a very special condition of the eye that occurs naturally in some members of the "Uchiha Clan".
The Sharingan's most well known ability is to be able to memorize any technique that it has been a witness to including Nijutsu, Genjutsu and Taijutsu techniques. Other abilities of this very special eye include hypnosis, allowing it's user to suggest actions and thoughts to the opponent. The Sharingan also has the very useful ability to see through any illusionary technique. For more info in the Sharingan CLICK HERE!

How Kakashi obtained the sharingan eye is not known at the present time. But, his use of it has made him an infamous and well-regarded shinobi in the ninja community. It has been said that he has copied more than a thousand techniques with it, making Kakashi's arrays of techniques an exceptionally wide one. Included here is a rare photo of Kakashi with his sharingan in action.

Well hopefully we will here from Team 7 soon...
Thanks again for your patience.

7th Entry: Renegade Ninja's Sighted!!!

Greetings everyone, I'm Konoha_Cop, an Admin on Kakashi's Blog. Since Kakashi is en route to the Wave Country and can't update, I am here to fill everybody in on what's going on. There have been reports from our intelligence that some "Renegade Ninjas have been sighted in the outskirts of Wave Country. Some people are speculating that this might be the "Demon Brothers" or even "Momochi Zabuza" from the Hidden Village of the Mist. Unfortunately, we cannot confirm this at the present time. We are also unable to dispatch any ANBU at the moment to further investigate. Hopefully, this will not cause a problem for Team 7 who are in the nearby vicinity. My one concern is that the Mist Village has listed Kakashi-san a K.O.S. (Kill-On-Sight) Ninja. So I am not sure if it is entirely safe for his team and their client to be out. Then again, Kakashi is an elite ninja and former ANBU member himself, So I am sure he and his team can handle any problem if and when it arises... And until Kakashi arrives at the bridge builders home, we won't know if indeed the rumors are true. Thank you for your time and please feel free to ask me any questions about this journal.

Please Report any sightings of "Momochi Zabuza".
Do not try to apprehend, he is a deadly assassin and you WILL be killed.

6th Entry: The first couple of Missions.

Well what can I say? Team 7 has been holding up well on their first few missions. Simple stuff so far like finding lost pets, doing repairs and sorts, you know normal Genin stuff (gives me plenty of reading time ^.^). But i can see that they are getting frustrated with what they call "menial tasks" for missions, Genins today always wanting to grow up way too fast.

For instance on Tuesday Naruto gave me a tremendous headache by yelling into our PA system with, "WHY CANT WE GET A BETTER MISSION!!!!!" *sigh* That hurt... But, in a way I don't blame them, but still you have to earn you way up and pay your dues right?
Iruka and Hokage had to explain this to everyone again yesterday when Naruto threw a fit at our last assignment meeting.
Hokage calmly explained the breakdowns of A, B, C, and D type missions, and how one moves up in the ranks by experience and completing missions successfully.
Still though Naruto started to ask me about the different kinds of Ramen I have had while this whole talk was gong on (to be honest i was kind of amused heh heh). Even after this indiscretion, surprisingly enough Sandaime felt bad and assigned us a C rank mission. Bodyguarding and Escorting a man to his home in the "Wave Country" where he has been building a bridge.
Seems simple enough, but of course Naruto still is not satisfied and nearly picks a fight with our client...sigh.
So this will probably be my last entry in kohona for a bit, as we depart in the morning for the country of waves. I'll try to update once I get to the "Wave Country".
Oh and by the way, I got this security pic from the 3rd, He thought it was funny and sent it to me... (To tell you the truth so do I ha ha). Well hope you enjoy as much as I did. I gotta go pack, and also pick up the second volume of Icha Icha~ my old one got wet.

5th Entry: "Survival Training"

Well today was the big day. "Survival Training" or rather testing out the three to see if they are fit to be Konoha ninja.
The task? Simple I have 2 bells, and all they have to do is get the bells from me by lunch.
The catch? There are only two bells but three students, which means one of them, or ALL of them can fail... Though they have to realize they need to come at me with intent to kill, otherwise they will fail...

Naruto got over-excited as expected, and jumped the gun trying to get the bells from me even before i yelled start.
This was not good sign, (but he does show spirit...) The others are quite cautious and appear to be good at hiding, one of many good ninja traits. During this exercise I thought it would also be good to go over the three basic shinobi skills "Taijustu", "Genjustu" and "Ninjistu" and most of all catch up with some reading of the latest chapter of Icha Icha Paradise (known as Make-out Paradise in the US.) lol.
It was kind of fun watching while they ran around and did the typical things dumb brats would do, like splitting off and trying to get the bells from me by themselves ha ha. Lunch time came and they failed to see what the exercise was about. TEAMWORK!!!!! *sigh* I thought it was another hopeless year... Naruto foolishly tried to fight me one on one (though the several Shadow Clones he produced proved quite impressive). Sakura passed out immediately when i performed a Genjustu technique (haha girls), and Saskue while he surprised me at being able to perform the "Katon Goukaryuu" Uchiha's Fireball Jutsu at such a young age, still did not fair very well (burying him neck high was a nice bonus haha). So i failed them, and told them they should just quit even attempting to be shinobi... Needless to say they were not happy with what i said.
so i gave them one more chance at lunch time, I left them with some time to think and you know what? They surprised me and finally understood what I was trying to drill into there heads. TEAMWORK is the key to everything! and well, they passed!!
Heh heh, these are the 1st students I have ever passed! They really surprised me and the next few weeks should be quite interestingl. So finally team 7 will start it's missions tomorrow!! Now where was I, chapter 8?

Jya na~

4th Entry: New Students

So my new students are Uzumaki Naruto, Uchiha Saskue, and Haruno Sakura... My first impression? They are pretty much a useless trio. After initial introductions, most of what I had expected of the 3 was pretty much on par. Uzumaki Naruto who is quite loud, is looking for recognition, Uchiha Sasuke is obsessed over the incident of the Uchiha clan and well..., Haruno Sakura is more interested in Sasuke then being a ninja. Sigh...
I'm not sure how this group will work out. Just look at them. Is this the future of shinobi in our village?

We'll see how things fair when I test them out during "Survival Training" tomorrow. Anyways... I want to get through the next chapter of Icha Icha Paradise before morning. Need to find out what happen to Junko in chapter 6 hee hee...

3rd Entry: Milk

Met up with Sandaime Hokage earlier to check out one of my potential student's apartment.

Found this carton of expired milk on his table. Hope he didn't drink any of it...
Hmmm... Makes me curious what the rest are like~

1st Entry: Sorry about being late...

I am posting this late...sorry. I was helping an old woman cross the street.
Um, so I am starting this blog to see if this new semester I actually get a few students who aren't boneheads and not send back to the academy.

Later today, I am meeting with the 3rd to see one of my students living quarters. Should be interesting...
