The latest episode of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” will be airing this week and it will feature more of its new characters. The latest new character to appear will be Rock Lee’s son, Metal Lee, who will be taking the spotlight next.
Metal Lee Goes On A Rampage
The official synopsis of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations” Episode 3 has been released. As revealed in the preview for the next episode, it is titled “Metal Lee Goes Wild”. It will finally introduce one of the new and main characters in the progressing “Naruto” universe, Metal Lee, who happens to be the son of the well-known taijutsu user, Rock Lee.
According to the synopsis, Metal Lee does not like being the center of attention, which is the total opposite of his father, who was a loud and audacious character. Somehow, Shikadai Nara gets on the wrong side of Metal Lee by offending him. Because of Shikadai’s actions, Metal Lee will be enraged and the two will engage in a fight where their skills will be put into light.
Who Is Metal Lee?
Aside from being Rock Lee’s son, Metal Lee is an excellent taijutsu user just like his father. However, based on the anime series’ preview, Metal Lee clearly did not inherit his father’s carefree and friendly personality. The young Lee seems to be shy and prefers to be alone, as hinted in the first two episodes of “Boruto: Naruto Next Generations”, where he is seen aloof, avoiding conversation with classmates and even watching Boruto and Iwabe’s fight in a safe distance, both from the fight and the crowd.
Despite his aloof personality, Metal Lee is a dedicated student who looks up to his father and Might Guy. Metal Lee also wears the same green jumpsuit as his father and wears a scarf. Though he resembles his dad, he actually has sharper eyes, hinting that he most likely inherited this feature from his mother, whose identity is still unknown but fans are suspecting that it might be Tenten.
