After their success with the mission of defending a nearby farm against invading bandits, it seems that whoever handles the missions are growing more confident in Hiroshi's abilities to handle these types of missions, though this new one seemed to be a different one altogether. They were assigned to handle reconnaissance of a even larger bandit ring that's been terrorising locals and citizens alike who make their way towards Konohagakure. Individual Chuunin had already been assigned to try and sort this mess out, but even they were having trouble with the bandits which meant they weren't the average bandits, they knew what they were doing and are actually powerful. All they can do now is just simply find their base of operations and set up a countermeasure from there.
In the case that things go south, it's why Akihiro is assigned with Hiroshi for this mission, a capable Jounin to ensure their escape should they be discovered. Hiroshi already took the initiative to not even wait at the gates and instead, he already found himself at the last reported sight of their attacking... a caravan with most of it's cargo looted with kunai, shurikens and different weapons all over the caravan showing clear signs of attack. The area of this forest seemed especially more dense then any other part of the forest so it's hard to tell if there's even somebody hiding in the trees or in the scenery, the bandits picked their spot well and knew what they were doing.
