Welcome to the Hidden Leaf Village. The village where Uzumaki Naruto, star of the TV show "Naruto" makes his home. Every day, countless powerful ninjas carry out missions and train to hone their skills. Our main character is one of these powerful ninjas...but it's not Naruto! It's the ninja who can't use ninjutsu, Rock Lee! In spite of his handicap, Lee has big dreams. He works hard every day to perfect his hand-to-hand combat skills and become a splendid ninja! And to achieve his dream, he puts in more effort than anyone else. Under the hot-blooded tutelage of his teacher Guy, he works alongside his teammates Tenten and Neji. Watch the Beautiful Green Beast Rock Lee train, go on missions, and have all sorts of adventures!

This show was what I looked forward to every Tuesday.

Do you like Naruto? Do you like Naruto Shippuden? (pretty much the same thing, but whatever) Because I like both, and this show was the highlight to my Tuesday whenever I got home from school.

The show just finished yesterday, and honestly, I was gonna cry myself a river because I was so sad it was ending.

Lucky for you, as long as you know the characters in Naruto, you can pick up the show in any episode you want and you would still be able to follow what was going on. It has no definite plot line, read more

I'm not going to pretend this is some 21st century masterpiece. It's just as much of a cash grab as Boruto but at least it's funny as hell. I recommend you watch it subbed bc some of the english voice actors don't line up. Neji, Tenten, and Lee still sound the same so the dub is somewhat passable.

The show is basically just a bunch of Naruto-related comedy sketches of Rock Lee going around Konoha with the consistent side cast being TenTen- resident straight man, and Neji - resident cross dresser. There are some cute and heartwarming moments but it's mostly just for laughs.

Seeing many not-so-praising reviews of this show, I felt compelled to write a review, although it's something I rarely do.

You may call me biased, but I.LOVE.THIS.SHOW. It has, without a doubt, become of my favorite shows. This may be due to the fact that I'm a pretty hardcore Naruto-fan, but none the less, I really do believe this show deserves major credits.

There's no real plot (although Orochimaru continuously tries to crush Konoha), but other than that, it's just Rock Lee (as the main character), hanging out with everyone else in the village.
It's a collection of smaller stories, and each one is absolutely hilarious. If I read more
