Crunchyroll has added one of the more cutely anticipated shows of the season with Rock Lee & His Ninja Pals, the Naruto spin-off that has gotten a preview through the last few weeks at the end of Naruto: Shippuden episodes. The series takes over the spot previously held by Bleach will start streaming on April 3 at 5:30 am ET.
The series will be available to premium members worldwide outside of Japan closely following its broadcast. Free members can watch the episodes one week later in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, the Netherlands, Norway, and Sweden.
Plot Concept: Based on Kenji Taira’s manga and directed by Naruto Shippuden film director Masahiko Murata, the series follows the bushy-browed Rock Lee and the comedic happenings that surround him in the ninja village. Expect plenty of familiar faces, just in a not-so familiar SD style.
