Japanese publisher Shueisha is announcing that the weekly Naruto SD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden anime will premiere on TV Tokyo on Tuesday, April 3 at 6:00 p.m. That timeslot is currently held by the Bleach anime. Shueisha is also noting that, like the main Naruto series, the Rock Lee spin-off anime will be animated by Pierrot.
The "SD" in the title stands for "Sugoi Doryoku," or "Super Determined." ("SD" traditionally means "super-deformed.")
