Ok I started watching naruto from the first episode again and I notice iruka tells mizuki that all the graduates need to be able to perform a clone jutsu to gradual. With that being said any ideas on how Lee graduated from the academy if he can't do ninjutsu.
Maybe,it's a qualification stage just for
Naruto and his friends academic year...and Rock
Lee academic year maybe have a different
qualification stage...Maybe,it's different
from one year to another year...to be a
shinobi,it's not all about
ninjutsu...there's taijutsu and genjutsu
too...obviously,Rock Lee qualification stage to be
a Genin is all about taijutsu,maybe...
Rock lee's situation is a special case. He
doesn't have the aptitude for ninjutsu and
genjutsu at all, so it wasn't like he was
slacking. Naruto on the other hand has the
aptitude but was not putting in the needed effort
to learn it.
@ Quajo its not that he didnt try with effort its
just he didnt have a teacher/parent to learn from
just trying learning to ride a bike with no
training wheels on when youre a young kid its hard
as fuck i know because i taught myself so epic
situation just got to think of what the author is
trying to say in this case naruto with no parents
