Considering the show taking over Bleach's timeslot in Japan is a Naruto spin-off don't count on it being cancelled any time soon.
(I love Rock Lee. He's WAY better than Naruto. xP)
It was bound to happen. It's rating sucked and the manga isn't doing as well as it used to.
I'm fully aware of this and still don't care.You guys do realize that the Rock Lee spin-off is an adaption of the SD gag manga, right? It's all chibified. So don't expect deep stories focusing around Lee and Gai. This makes it the second anime adaption of a manga released in Saikyo Jump (the first being Dragon Ball: Episode of Bardock).
