I think we have luxury that no the manga nor anime have:lack of audience to please.
And this issue gotten harder in this decade. Many popular mangas of thr past wouldn't have survived the short amount of attention people are willing to give to new shows, so they have to jump the story forward.
My ides was to use an actual D and C rank missions, while Futility-San in the background conspire.
If I have learned anything from shows like MLP, the question how Pinkie is dealing with the secret(gasp) her friends are hiding from her(surprise party) is more intense, from how many metetors will Madara throw at countless of characters we don't care about.
So for now, more for Harry Potter's style?
It also, parts of the ninja world, that it will be hard to scale back to, when we get out to the wide world.
So for now like.. 2-3 D missions, and then another encounter w8th futilitt san, just to get C rank mission which actually get them out, while the threat of Futility guy hang in the air.
For the C rank, I imagined Uchiaha guy, who tempt weaker ninjas with unique abilities to challenge him, so he could copy them.
That what I have for now in general.
Slow burn, but I think it work well in 1 on 1
How does it sound?
