Summary

Rock Lee is a Ninja Who Can't Use Ninjutsu

In the Konohagakure a girl is being chased by a gang of tax collectors. However Rock Lee, a shinobi who can't use ninjutsu or genjutsu, appears to help save the girl from the gang. He then manages to make the tax collectors retreat. Lee's team-mates, Neji Hyūga and Tenten, then appear who are mad that Lee has left them behind. The girl then asked for the duo's help in defending her from the tax collectors who are trying to force her to pay or they threaten to destroy her house. The duo agrees to this request and are then taken to the girls house who's utility is cut off. She asked for Lee's assistants by heating up the kettle so she can make them tea. Lee then explains that he is a shinobi who can't use ninjutsu or genjutsu. This disappoints the girl and have the duo leave the premises without giving Lee time to explain. The tax collectors then return along with their boss to kidnap the girl, however Lee returns to protect the girl. Lee unleashes a barrage of attacks upon the three tax collectors and then faced the boss in battle. The girl believes that it is impossible for Lee to defeat the boss without ninjutsu, however Neji and Tenten stepped in explaining to the girl that Lee doesn't need the basis skills of a ninja, but his will to fight. Lee then charges towards the boss and uses the Elimination By Depantsification once more. This technique proved effective and the tax collectors retreat, promising to never come back. Lee then explains to the girl that he plans on becoming a great shinobi with or without using ninjutsu. The girl believes Lee and runs forward to hug him, but Lee sees dog excrement on the dog and tries to avoid it and as a result, Lee accidently pulls down the girls' pants down. This leaves the girl enrage and injures Lee.

Rock Lee's Rival is Naruto

Neji, Lee and Tenten accept a mission to obtain a baumkuchen, a popular food with limited stocks. Lee goes to acquire the voucher, but finds that Naruto Uzumaki desires it as well. Both need the voucher for a mission, but each attempts to give the voucher to the other. To solve the problem, the two tie the voucher to the top of a tree and race to get it. Lee, in the lead, reaches for the voucher, but Naruto beats him by a hairs length and snatches it. Saddened, Lee nearly gives up, but refuses to do so after thinking of the outcome if he did. He reveals the race to be a heart-warming skit and moves Naruto to tears. Naruto hands Lee the voucher and Lee and his teammates go to get the baumkuchen, only to find that it had been sold due to no one taking the order when the number was called.
