Rock Lee is a youth from the Hidden Leaf Village who strives to become a worthwhile ninja - despite the fact that he is unable to use ninjutsu! Alongside fellow teammates Neji and Tenten, Lee must overcome this obstacle while completing a variety of absurd training routines, protecting the village from the always-scheming Orochimaru, and somehow finding time to win over the heart of his beloved Sakura, who rejects his every advance. However, this matters not to the eternally cheerful and energetic boy, who seems to be undeterred by failure of any sort. Whether competing at the annual sports meet, acting as bodyguard for the Hokage, or battling against his friend and rival Naruto, Lee always gives 110% effort, determined to live out his springtime of youth to the fullest!

If you really enjoy those chibi shorts that are at the end of some of the Naruto Shippuuden episodes then you'll really like this anime. The anime is two ten minute chibi episodes centered around Rock Lee and his two teammates Neji and Ten-Ten with the occasional appearance of Naruto, Sakura, and other familar faces (in chibi form, of course). Since I thought the chibi shorts were funny I started watching this anime expecting the same, and was not disappointed. Naruto SD: Rock Lee No Seishun Full-Power Ninden does not promise to be another Naruto, but rather a silly and fun comedic anime that is fun for kids, teens, and adults who, like me, are just an overgrown kid on the inside. Dont expect the animation to be anything spectacular because its not, but it suits the anime quite well. As for the story, it's really just a bunch of random episodes with no real theme other than Lee getting himself and his team into some rather amusing situations (I am particularly fond of when Lee somehow gets Neji to dress like a girl for his random skits). As for characters ... if you love Naruto then you'll see a great many of your favorite characters in chibi form (I particularly love seeing Yamoto in chibi form ... he's in the backround quite a bit and I enjoy looking for him, its kinda like where's waldo except it's where's Yamato instead lol). Anyway if you are a fan of the chibi shorts in Naruto, you'll enjoy this anime but if you are not a fan of them then this anime is clearly not for you. and ... voila!  *For deideiblueeyez*
