NarutoSD: Rock Lee no Seishun Full-Power Ninden

Are you for real, Japan? I can’t believe you are going to make me say this twice on the same day; what the hell did I just watch? I sat here for roughly twenty minutes as I saw how Naruto (Shippuuden) was mercilessly getting raped by this gay gag anime spinoff. I’m not sure what effect it will have on Naruto Shippuuden, but NarutoSD is out of this world, really.

You can truly tell that it’s a gag anime by how it looks. The artwork looks like it’s specifically made for the younger generation. However, I don’t think that many people will be able to handle twenty minutes of this every week. That five-minutes-per-episode spinoff of Haruhi Suzumiya was pretty difficult to watch, but what about this? I have a bad feeling about this…

And as for the story, well… It’s not special, sorry. We have established that this is a gag anime, which means that they are going to milk us for laughs, cheap laughs at that. I think it might be funny at times, but twenty minutes every week is too much. The first half wasn’t all that interesting and I think that they overused that “poop joke” too much, and it’s only just the first episode.

I’m sorry, but I don’t recommend NarutoSD. They hope to squeeze out a few cheap laughs with dry comedy, hope to appeal to us with “cute” characters, and the episode’s duration is just too much. I really think it’s a shame that they filled the Bleach timeslot with this, instead of a different anime. There are a lot of great manga’s out there that deserve an anime adaption, but this is not one of them. And finally, I don’t think this anime will appeal much to the more mature viewer, but maybe that’s just me.

Plot Summary: A spinoff of “Naruto,” following the exploits of supporting cast-member Rock Lee.
