Well i hope it fucking flops. There are way more better manga that needs an anime. This is just a money cow. I doubt this be half as funny as beezlebub.

Next they should cancel the horrible anime called One Piece and replace it with "Tonton and friends".

What the heck..The only anime serie running should be Naruto! 500 different versions of it! <3

Anime and Manga is Awesome!
Naruto is beyond Awesome!

I don't what the hate is about, maybe cause it's related to Naruto.
MOTHERFUCKING ROCK LEE

^On the contrary.

To those of you who have yet to read the manga, it's surprisingly funny and is better than current Naruto. In fact, I'd say this is the real Naruto, as it captures the spirit of Part 1, when the story was actually good and Kishi wasn't bored and tired of his manga. And, guess what? Tenten actually exists.

Even better - and this goes without saying - it stars the best character: Rock Lee.
Who's Tenten?
Some new character?

We don't need it. I just want to never hear Naruto ever again.

The manga has Tenten and Neji as main charas so of course I'm gonna watch it.

It probably can't be filler episodes because it's not by the same person, and the fact that this manga is drawn very differently from Naruto. It wouldn't be as funny if it was drawn like the original Naruto. Feel free to correct me, I don't know much about these kinds of things.

might check out only because rock lee was one of the only characters in naruto i gave a crap about.
