Team Shibire was one of the many genin teams from Konohagakure that participated in the Chūnin Exams. They made it to the second stage, but didn't pass due to Minoji and Shibire opening their scroll early on while Tanzō was absent, resulting in them being knocked out by summoned Konoha shinobi.
In the anime, the three genin participated in the joint Chūnin Exams between Konohagakure and Sunagakure. With the help of Neji Hyūga, they figured out how to solve the first problem of the written test. They also managed to solve the second problem by turning in a blank paper (which means "not to abandon their comrades"), leading them to pass the first round. However, they were not among the first 30 teams to arrive at the Suna checkpoint, immediately disqualified and ordered to return to Konoha by Asuma Sarutobi and Kurenai Yūhi.
