Hello everyone and welcome to the special Rock Lee report. Since I can't comment on the Rock Lee Discussion thread, it looks I have to do some reports to remind the community about the hilarious misadventures of Rock Lee and His Ninja Pals. After episode 9, I had to copy down Crunchyroll Synopsis. I fell behind in the wiki work.

Ep. 9: Hinata is Neji's Cousin / Hinata's Weak Point is Naruto

It's all about Hinata
It's all about Hinata

Neji takes on a serious role in this story where he trains Hinata to be the best and eliminate others who dare harm his cousin. In the second story, Rock Lee becomes the love guru for Hinata and helps her win Naruto's heart by following four principles. Will Hinata be able overcome her bashfulness with Naruto around?

Highlights: It has some serious moments in Neji's flashbacks, and Hinata finally appear. Neji seems to have some kind of sisterly complex with Hinata, and Hinata faints whenever she sees Naruto.

Ep. 10: Teamwork Symbolizes Youth / The Culprit is Among Us!

Jet Lee!

After seeing Shikamaru and Chouji in action, Lee attempts to strengthen his friendship with Neji and perfect their own combo moves. The Leaf ninja are scheduled to take an IQ test, but on the way to the exam, Lee's team discovers Guy-sensei collapsed on the ground! They'll have to push their brains to the limit to solve this mystery.

By Crunchyroll

Highlights: The cool thing about this episode is that how they compared Shikamaru and Choji's childhood bond to Rock Lee and Neji's rivalry in a test of teamwork. Shikamaru is such a smart ass in this episode.

Ep. 11: A Field Trip to the Old Capital! / Girls' Rooms and Candy Boxes

Let go guys! To the Girls' room!
Let go guys! To the Girls' room!

Lee and Naruto are both vying to be on Sakura's team for a research trip to the old capitol city. But when they're stuck with Neji instead, they settle for tailing her. Evening falls and Lee wants to slip away from the senseis to go hang out with the girls. He sends Konohamaru in to do some recon, While the young ninja is caught, he manages to leave behind a single scrap of paper.

By Crunchyroll

Highlights: Besides the awesome school version of Rock Lee's show, Rock Lee and his gang are facing against Kakashi and Might Guy in order to get in with the ladies. I like how the Might Guy and Kakashi got them in the end.

Ep. 12: The No-Ninjutsu Lifestyle! / I Want to Share an Umbrella with Sakura

Fed up with their pupils using their ninja skills for the simplest of tasks, Guy and Kakashi set out to teach them some appreciation. Lee is training in the train without an umbrella, when he sees Sakura getting soaked as well. Naruto appears with an umbrella to save the day, and a jealous Lee has to choose between training and love.

By Crunchyroll

Highlights: Despite that we don't get a reason why Rock Lee is infatuated with Sakura, it's nice to see Kakashi getting in the comedic business while Rock Lee's pals cheer up poor Rock Lee.

Ep. 13: Student vs. Master! Rock Lee vs. Might Guy! / I will Surpass Guy Sensei!

The ninjas of the Hidden Leaf are being tested on their combat skills, and Team Guy must win a match against their sensei in order to pass. Neji and Tenten succeed using their special moves, but how will Lee stand up to Guy-sensei's Morning Peacock.

By Crunchyroll

Highlights: The zany relationship between Might Guy and Rock Lee is tested when Might Guy finds Naruto surpassing Kakashi. This episode was great and the humor is bit bizarre as hell.

Ep. 14: I'll Restore the Reputation of Ninjas! / Death!

Rasen-Fart!
Rasen-Fart!

Fewer children in the Hidden Leaf Village are choosing to become ninjas. Lee goes to talk to Guy-sensei about the issue, only to overhear his idol say "Ninjutsu is the most important part of being a ninja! On his way to visit a hospitalized Guy-sensei, Lee hears Tsunade say he "doesn't have much time left." Can Lee whip up a curry dish that's spicy enough to save his teacher's life?

By Crunchyroll

Highlights: Naruto and Shikamaru do a good job in wowing the kids; Rock Lee tries using flatulence to wow the children which is nasty but works. There is a big curry demand. For Naruto, it's ramen; for Rock Lee, it's curry. There are some anime references that are unknown for some folks like me.

Feel free to share your favorite Rock Lee moments or bad ones here or in the discussion thread. Though, I hope we can do it in the discussion thread since Tom Pinchuk and I are behind in Rock Lee.
