It's been six years since Kiri dragged itself out of its civil war and into something vaguely resembling a unified nation. Things have been getting better, in fits and starts. More of the splinter factions have been folded back in - or taken care of - and Terumi Mei has solidified her hold on the Land of Water, apparently entirely without the outside world even noticing the once great nation is still inhabited, let alone getting its act together.
Shinrei's proud. Sadness here isn't productive, so - just pride, at how far they've come.
Far enough Mei told her to stop skulking about or fretting over diplomacy and war and go take a team. Teach. Turn her constant philosophizing on someone who cares (she's pretty sure that last bit was said fondly). The timing was helped by her daughter qualifying for genin this year, as well as two other students Shinrei is hopefully well positioned to help.
So Kaguya Elaise, Amajina of no clan worth noting (by the girl's own words), and Asano Sayuri are told, once their paperwork is filed and their position as genin of Kirigakure no Sato confirmed, to report the next morning to one of the outlying training fields, a rocky expance overlooking the ocean, for their preliminary team meeting.
