>>184721249>The only reason anyone likes Rock Shit is because the fucker barely shows up.
No, the reason people like Rock Lee is because he is the only character that actually represents the message naruto had at the beginning, that effort could beat talent, had Rocky Lee been allowed to fight Neji, he would have destroyed him, proving for once that a ninja did not need to be born with some bloodline bullshit to win and stand out.
Rocky Lee actually managed to give sasuke a beating in the earlier chapters without even opening the gates, showing that he at least was actually training to attain some skill, which makes sense, unlike nardo and sasuke, Rocky lee could not be bailed by some special power any time he fucked up.
And unlike Nardo, sasuke or even Deku, Rocky lee did not get a free out of jail card, he had to train for years to master the gates and still got fucked up against Gaara, got one leg and one arm destroyed, now contrast this with nardo who literally got carried to victory by infinity fox power for no effort against Neji, and of course, later we discovered nardo was the reincarnation of a god destined to greatness, which proved that Neji was right all along, if you are not born with with some special destiny, you might as well kill yourself.
And no, Rocky lee and Deku are not the same, any ninja can learn how to open the gates, why do you think almost no one does it? Because it can kill you and most ninjas can rely on other tools, because you know, they were not born crippled like Rocky lee.
Can All might give One for All for every quirkless kid out there who dreams to be a hero? I dont think so.
