  • Meheh, Guy looks like a drunk hippie...

    Wow, there have been a lot of stupid fillers, but this was takes the cake! XD OK, so apparently Lee opened up his own dojo or something and is waiting for someone to challenge him. Guy finds out about it, takes pity on Lee, and forms a disguise of an afro and mustache. What the hell? He's a ninja! Couldn't he have just made a transformation jutsu or something?!? Well anyway, before he can battle Lee, he has to go on another mission so a village outsider decides to masquerade as Guy. Lee finds him and beats the snot out of him and... Oh, I'm not very good at explaining things. Go watch it for yourself.moreless
  • A funny comedy episode that has fun with the characters.

    A very funny episode. It's great when it gets away from the storyline and all this serious ninja business for once, and just have some fun with the characters. It's funny to watch - especially some guy constantly running into more trouble and getting beaten up ^^. AAAAAAAANNNNND

    some reason the fillers make the characters look weaker than they are, but this actually keeps the characters at their skill with Rock Lee and his amazing taijutsu and Naruto and his sneaky attacks with his shadow clones. All in all a funny and good filler. And really fun to watch as well.moreless
  • Lee builds his own Dojo in order to challenge an opponent.

    Naruto returns to the village after delivering a letter for Lady Tsunade. He sees some signs pointing somewhere and decides to follow them. They lead him to a building and when he goes inside Lee challenges him to a fight. Naruto tries to explain that he is not there to fight when Lee kicks him through the wall. Naruto tells Lee that he has to report to Tsunade before he gets into trouble with her. On the way he runs into Gai-sensei. Naruto tells Gai what Lee is doing and that no one has shown up yet. Gai comees up with a plan to...moreless
  • i'm almost positive they have this storyline once before?...

    Ya they did i think it was like episode 161 or something, well anyway in the other episode Gai and Lee go on a mission so 2 brothers dress up like them to get information from the village and naruto was stupid enough to believe the disguise (couldn't the guys have just used transformation like the guy in this episode did) but nobody else really saw the other Gai, and in both episodes the imposters get beaten up by Gai and Rock Lee. Exept in this episode everyone was transforming... Gai got a costume the imposter transformed into Gai Naruto transformed into Gai then into Sakura then the imposter transformed into Lee. Major transformation ^_^ !moreless
  • Mix up episode.

    Ah, an episode about Lee. Although, the first time the main character of a filler was Lee I was sure that I would give the episode like a 0 but still, this episode was very nice. Very, very nice, haha. The mix ups and turn arounds were amazing, and it was laced up with some humour. Lee doing a dojo, then another guy pretending to be Guy, mixing it with a clueless Naruto, him fighting Lee, Naruto fighting Lee as Guy, Guy fighting the clone as Lee, gah! So it was a nice episode, as I thought it would be pretty bad.moreless

  • TRIVIA (1)

  • QUOTES (19)

    • Gai: (Drops an unconscious Nanafushi in Tsunade's office) Well then, we'll be on our way.
      Tsunade: Hey! Don't just leave him on my floor.
      Shizune: Wait Gai, hold on!
      Tsunade: I demand an explanation! Gai... Lee... Hey! Naruto!

    • Gai: Shikamaru, you must have had a rough time.
      Shikamaru: Right back at ya, the way you're lookin'. What the heck happened?
      Gai: Huh? What do you mean? What's wrong with how I look?
      Ino: (Pulls out mirror) Here.
      Gai: Oh, that's right! I don't have time to sit here and chat. I have to get back to Lee's dojo. (Takes off) Wait for me, Lee!
      (Shikamaru, Ino, and Choji are dumbfounded)

    • Ino: It's all your fault for taking so much junk food in the first place!
      Choji: But these were available for only a limited time and only in the Land of Tea. Green tea-flavored pork chips are rare. When a connoisseur of snacks find a limited offer like this one, it would be a crime for him not to take as much as he can.
      Ino: And how is that my problem?!
      Choji: What did you say?!
      Ino: You heard me!

    • Gai: What? You were only being attacked by monkeys?
      Shikamaru: They managed to grab all the snacks Choji was carrying, but at least the cargo is safe. That's something.
      Choji: (Dejected) All my snacks...stolen.
      Shikamaru: Anyway, Ino mistook it for a real enemy attack, so she panicked and sent out a distress message.
      Ino: Don't blame me! It happened so fast!

    • Kotetsu: (Referring to Gai in disguise) Did he seem weird to you?
      Izumo: No weirder than usual.

    • Lee: Naruto, he is not here. So instead I would like to spar against you!
      Naruto: What? (Thinking) No, not again! (Aloud) Uh, hold on. Let me just go look for him! (Takes off)
      Lee: Naruto! Let us work up a vigorous sweat in battle!
      (Naruto keeps running)

    • Guy: So, while I was away on my mission, Lee was so desperate for practice he decided to open his own dojo in order to train himself. I have taught my pupil well. I, Might Guy, am both moved and impressed.
      Naruto: The problem is not a single challenger from a rival dojo has shown up to fight him.
      Guy: Huh? How dare the other dojos treat him like this! Lee's hopes and dreams unrealized! I'll hunt down all those cowards and I won't go easy on them!
      Naruto: But... Uh... If you do, won't that leave even fewer folks to spar with him?
      Guy: Huh? Gosh darn it, you're right! What do I do?

    • Naruto: Darn it! I spent too much time at that dumb dojo and now Grandma Tsunade is gonna tear me to shreds! Oh man, I'd better steer clear of Bushy-Brow's Dojo until he calms down.
      Gai: What? Lee's dojo?
      Naruto: Huh? Bushier-Brow-sensei?
      Gai: Naruto, did I hear what I thought I heard?

    • Naruto: Come to think of it, I totally forgot to report in to Grandma Tsunade. I'd better book it over there. See ya around! (Takes off)
      Lee: Naruto! Please be my first challenger! (Naruto keeps running)

    • Lee: Have some tea. So you only came to look? (Naruto nods his head) Well, if you had told me so in the first place, you could have avoided getting kicked.
      Naruto: Sorry, but it was kinda hard to talk to you. You were too busy slamming me through a wall.
      Lee: Oh yes, I do apologize for that.

    • Lee: So my first dojo challenger will be you, Naruto? I could not wish for a better challenge.
      Naruto: Huh?
      Lee: I will fight with all my heart.
      Naruto: Fight?! Hey, wait just a min... Gah! (Dodges kick)
      Lee: Leaf Hurricane! (Kicks Naruto through the wall)

    • Naruto: (Reading sign) "Welcome to Hot-Blooded Dojo". Who the heck would build a dojo out here? (Leans on door and falls in)
      Lee: I have been waiting.
      Naruto: Wha-?
      Lee: You have accepted my challenge? Good, you may attack me from any direction.
      Naruto: Huh? Uh... Bushy-Brow...
      Lee: No move? Then I will come at you!
      Naruto: Huh? Hey! What the heck? Bushy-Brow, it's me!

    • Naruto: I have no idea what any of that means, but you can call that mission complete.

    • Lee: There are so many Sakuras. Oh happy day!

    • Lee: Naruto-kun! Let's sweat our youth's sweats together!

      ~Japanese version

    • Tsunade: Is there any meaning to that weird outfit?
      Sakura: Who knows?

      ~Japanese version

    • Naruto: But why a dojo?
      Lee: All for the sake of training.
      Naruto: Training?

      ~Japanese version

    • Lee: Naruto-kun! Please be my first!

      ~Japanese version

    • Lee: Is this also a clone?
      Naruto in disguise: (comes out from under the floorboard) I got you! I'm coming once more!
      Lee: Is this another shadow replication?
      Naruto in disguise: No!
      (Naruto uses his shadow clone jutsu to turn into many Sakuras.)
      Sakura Clones: Stop it,Lee!
      Lee: Sakura!
      Sakura Clones: Excuse me. I'll be interrupting. Hello!
      Lee: There are so many Sakuras? Gai-Sensei! Success! Since the day I was born, I've never been happier!
