The inaugural monthly issue of Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine is announcing on Saturday that an anime adaptation of Kenji Taira's Naruto spinoff manga Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden is launching. The gag comedy manga centers around the secondary Naruto character Rock Lee.
Shueisha already published the first of four seasonal issues of Saikyō Jump last December, but the magazine is becoming a monthly periodical as of this Saturday. Taira launched Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden in that first seasonal issue last December.
