It would be nice for Pierrot to just focus on the main series and keep the animation quality abit more consistent but i guess the SD spinoff deffo needs to be a thing again cause it's not like the main show has some major events that would require more resources or anything.

Seriously though, i guess the kids need something more to their tastes since it's pretty intimidating to get into the main show now so SD spinoff it is.

Rock Lee does need his own series. But not a purely gag one.

He's definitely a better character than any of the Naruto mains.

But......why? I barely lasted 26 episodes, then I just had to stop watching. It wasn't even remotely funny by that point.

>_> no surprise something with Naruto's name on it will do better than Bleach

Show was pretty funny too and its the only time Tenten aka best girl will be relevant in the series.

To all the naysayers: Rolling Eyes Whatevs! I thoroughly enjoyed the show and one can hardly describe me as a "kid". (Well, unless you're an octogenarian... ) So this news is very welcome indeed! Anime hyper

This is great, defo looking forwards to it!

I'd want something not homo-esque with drastic fangirls and hysteric fandom (serz 2013 anime is nothing but over dramatic fanservice and im a slight fujoshi at heart too) and since i have no idea where the Naruto manga is heading with all the shizz-bizz I'd rather watch a show about Rock Lee at best.

At least we get to see more Neji ;')

Sorry to disappoint, but this is not a new anime. This is just a rerun of old episodes, they clarified this on their twitter
