Hello! My name is YoungOtakuNerd, but I prefer to be called Erica (after my Sonic FC, Erica Sakura).
I am a huge Naruto fan. I'd have to say that it is one of my favorite anime shows, if not my absolute favorite. And I was pulled in because of one specific character; a very well-thought, beautiful, and inspirational character, who has become my reason for being a fan and has risen to the ranks of being my all time favorite anime character.
And that character is Rock Lee.
I am not ashamed to admit that I am a Lee fangirl. There's just something so cute and compelling about him! When I was around 12, I picked up a volume of Naruto at the public library, and it just so happened to be the one where they introduce Lee for the first time. My thoughts? "What a weirdo! He's one strange little guy, ain't he?" A couple years later, however, I actually wanted to get into the fandom, so I went and looked it up on YouTube. I ended up seeing a lot of stuff focusing on Lee. I was intrigued by him, I was mesmerized after a certain amount of exposure, I was sure he was my favorite when I learned of his sad past, and I was sold when I saw him in Springtime of Youth. *Squee!* He's so cute as a chibi!!!
Lee is a sweet, sympathetic, lovable, adorable ninja, and I love him so much. He is my favorite anime character of all time; BELIEVE IT!
There you go; upon this endeavor, I have spilled my guts about the character I love. (See what I did there? I used Lee's favorite words in one sentence!)
Erica Sakura, signing off! (P.S. If you're a fan of Sonic the Hedgehog, you can also find me on the Sonic Fanon Wiki.)
