Taro graduated from the Konohagakure Ninja Academy as a Genin and was placed in Kakashi’s team alongside his brothers. Kakashi wanted to test their teamwork, and that’s why before accepting them to his team, he gave them a task where all three had to take the bell from him.
Taro and his brothers failed to take the bells, and because of that, Kakashi tied Taro's big brother Jiro and told the other brothers not to feed him lunch. Kakashi wanted to see if they would break the rules he set for their comrades or not, because Kakashi believed that leaving your comrades makes you bigger scum than breaking the rule. Taro and his brother tried to feed Jiro their lunch, but Jiro denied it and told them to stick with the rule, and because of that, Kakashi failed them and sent them back to the Ninja Academy again.
Later, Taro and his brothers met Kakashi again in the village and thanked him for sending them back to the Ninja Academy, because they learned about their weaknesses and team spirit, which made Kakashi happy and surprised.
Taro is kind and obedient to his big brother Jiro. He also seemed to be caring yet not confident in himself.
Taro has brown hair and wears a no-collar blue T-shirt and an embedded Konoha head protector on top of the t-shirt. He wears green trousers and blue shinobi sandals. He keeps his Kunai and other ninja weapons in a small blue bag strapped around his right leg.
Taro is a genin. He might know all the basic Jutsu, like Shadow clone jutsu, Substitution jutsu, and Shuriken Technique.
