Summary :- Obito overhears a couple shinobi complaining about completing missions with Kakashi and asks them about it. They tell him Kakashi is ignoring his teammates to complete missions no matter what, which conflicts with what Obito remembers Kakashi saying. They advise him to beware of being assigned missions with Kakashi. Leaving the Academy, Obito asks Rin about Kakashi, and shares his concerns with her. Obito comes across Kakashi and tries to strike up a conversation with him, only for Kakashi to dryly tell him not to worry about him and leave. Obito trains in the rain to catch up to Kakashi, but Rin distracts him for a moment and falls down, and she encourages to keep training. Hiruzen asks Minato to teach Kakashi some humanity. Rin berates Obito for being late to his own graduation ceremony and takes him inside to re-enact the graduation. She gives him his certificate and tells him they were assigned to the same team. Team Minato gathers for the first time, and Minato applies the bell test. The team passes and Minato informs them they’ll start with simple, odd-job missions. Obito finds lost objects and pets by asking around the elderly people he often aids and Minato appreciates Obito’s kindness towards others. Team Minato completes all available D-rank missions, so they’re assigned a C-rank mission, escorting a group of foreign shinobi carrying a message. During the mission, Minato notices they’re being surrounded by enemies, and orders Rin and Kakashi to go on ahead, while he and Obito fall back to take care of the enemies. Obito and Minato engage in battle, with Obito being saved from an attack by Minato. Another group of pursuers catch up to Rin and Kakashi’s group. Kakashi tells him Rin to go on ahead while he stalls the enemies, but one of their escorts is hit and falls off the bridge into a river. Reaching near their destination, one of the escorts thanks Rin and Kakashi, but the other two reveal themselves as traitors and attack him. Knowing that Minato will reach them too late, the traitors prepare to attack Rin and Kakashi.
