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*
If you love the lighthearted moments in Naruto and Shippuden you'll enjoy this show. Personally I have always had a soft spot for Lee so I enjoy watching him and his squad's exploits. I really like getting a less serious look at Neji's character as well. I'm currently plowing through shippuden and watching episode after episode can kind of turn you off of an anime so it's good to break it up. I think it's great if you feel like you need a break but don't want to leave the Naruto universe (why would you ever want to?) It's super cute overall and made me giggle. It's a great mindless way to spend a few minutes while eating breakfast or cleaning.
Story Isn’t really an overriding one. The anime is made up of 2 half storylines per episode. Only very occasionally do these halves have any effect on another. There wasn't really supposed to be a story line. It is just a bit of fun. Each episode is quite funny in its own right, but if you like your anime to have point and go towards that, then this isn't for you. Animation Childish, but suitable to tone of the show. It is not really the action anime that it was spawned from. It is meerly a source of humour. The animation may put some off at first but you won't really notice after a while. Sound In keeping music alongside a very good comedic vocal performance. Overall the sound is very inkeeping with the anime's aims Characters Very nice twist on familiar characters. The characters all become self-aware stereotypes form most comedy shows. There is some development, but only in the comedic sense and not in a way that will have any sway on how the characters will really act. Overall Excellent, good fun. If you enjoyed Naruto and enjoy silly humour then I would recommend this
