Boruto Anime Opening by KANA-BOON and Ending Theme Announced

The Boruto anime, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, is making its way to Japanese airwaves on April 5, 2017. The up-coming issue of Shuiesha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has announced the opening and ending theme for the new series.

The opening, titled “Baton Road”, will be performed by Japanese band KANA-BOON. Naruto fans are very familiar with KANA-BOON as they are the very same group handpicked by Naruto creator Masashi Kishimoto to perform the official theme song (“Driver”) for Boruto: Naruto the Movie. KANA-BOON has also performed Naruto Shippuden Opening 16 (“Silhouette”) and the opening for the video game Naruto Shippuden: Ultimate Ninja Storm 4 (“Spiral”).

The ending, titled “Dreamy Journey”, will be performed by The Peggies, a Japanese girl group. This will be the first time they have lent their talents to a Naruto-related series.

More information for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is expected in the coming weeks and we at Saiyan Island hope to have it for you right here! For now, take a look at the scan announcing the opening and ending for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations along with KANA-BOON’s past Naruto works.

  • OminouS

    The best option when it comes to opening and ending from the start of anime! I’m waiting for Asian Kung-Fu Generation!

  • Di

    why not FLOW thou? pierrot is kissing kana boon’s azz too much

  • Exkirion

    Opening 1s tend to suck for shounens hough…
    Naruto op 1 was pretty bad, Shippuden op 1 was okay at best, Hitman reborn op 1 is the weakest of the bunch, Bleach op 1 sucks etc. etc. etc.

    Also Kana Boon is pretty hit and miss. Spiral is pretty good, but I’m not a big fan of silhouette and Diver is so-so.

  • dbz

    the opening and ending looks cool

  • Flash ✓ᵛᵉʳᶦᶠᶦᵉᵈ ᵃᶜᶜᵒᵘᶰᵗ

    Hope the anime doesn’t suck.

  • Edward

    I thought the first opening for Naruto was pretty good. I love Silhouette too so personally I’m pretty psyched. Bleach’s first opening was pretty awesome too lmao. But I respect your opinion.

  • SilentSaiyan

    I have to disagree, Bleach Opening 1 was unique and pretty decent imo. The english version of Naruto OP 1 I never want to talk about lmao.

  • ayami

    the opening sounds ok but it seems more fit for a ending and not an opening. I would of rather had a really up beat song for the first opening. Maybe the 2nd opening will be better whenever that happens. ya narutos first opening wasnt the best. shippudens was ok. but maybe once we see the actual opening when the anime airs it will be good.

  • Alex Calhoun

    “Silhouette” is one of my favorite openings so this is good news for me

  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    You say that when FLOW already has four songs in the Naruto series

  • Ronin

    I dont know Kana boon is becoming the “Naruto” Series music guys cause they even had a song in the game.Im sure flow will come back for another opening later on.

  • Di

    they have 3 and the last one was used like 7 years ago

  • Di

    I hope so cause kana boon aint that good

  • Anthony_weaver86


  • Mr. Turnip-Head

    Songs by FLOW that have been an opening or ending for the Naruto series including Shippuden
    Rainbow’s Sky
    The last one debuted two years ago in July

  • TMose

    “Bleach op 1 sucks”

    Some opinions are different from mine and I respect that but this one is just factually wrong going by the laws of nature.

  • Meytyry ^^

    I really enjoyed the first Bleach opening… But it’s just my opinion XD

  • Meytyry ^^

    I think that FLOW did the best work. Their songs sticks in head and have a really deep meaning…

  • Meytyry ^^

    Same bro…

  • Meytyry ^^

    I like KANA-BOON. They have some good songs, so now I don’t worry about the opening. But I am waiting for FLOW of course… They’re the best ^^

  • Meytyry ^^

    Yea! I agree in 100000% ^^

  • Di

    I forgot the ending

  • HD34

    It should be cancelled

  • HD34

    Sorry but it should be cancelled and let bleach be animated instead.

  • yogensha

    I just wanna know if Boruto will be simulcast through Crunchyroll and/or Hulu

  • Only When Vince McMahon Dies™

    Hopefully its more like Part 1 Naruto and less like Shippuden with the exception of the battles Naruto and Sasuke take part in

  • Madaras Rape Face

    Eh, not excited. With the way the manga supposedly goes regarding Sasuke and Naruto and the “Future” … I just don’t like Boruto as a series. The movie, was excellent, it was the best experience I had in a movie in a very long time … but the plot points I’m hearing about make me really dislike the Boruto manga.

    Not to mention the artstyle, which thankfully will be more Kishimoto-esque in the actual TV series.

    Why are they milking that garbage still? Can’t they just let it die?

  • nigght

    You could check out the newest chapter of the manga as a sneak peak of what’s to come. It’s probably going to be a mix of both late part 1 and part 2, with different elements added to it.

  • nigght

    Well budgets were tight back then, naruto/hitman/bleach were probably on a trial run to see if people liked it before the company started heavily funding the show. Since Naruto has been popular for a long time and it seems a lot of people are interested in the manga, they’re probably going to go full out for OP 1 of this new series. Got to make a good impression so they can milk more out of the naruto franchise.

  • Gray Fullbuster

    I hope the opening will be good but … i don’t know about the ending

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    Ugh, high pitch’d dude again. Not that I can’t enjoy these type of voices, some of the songs are really well done with them, like Tokyo Ghoul’s opening, but recently they are overused in Anime industry. It’s almost as if they were Japan’s another fetish…

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    That being said, I still think it will be a better spin off than Super.

  • HD34

    No. Super is better than boruto. Boruto has nothing. It should be cancelled for good and let bleach be animated instead.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    lol, how do you know – it didn’t even air yet! And it already is beating Super. You know in which way? It’ll have smilar art and animation style, unlike Super. Plus, characters will actually act like they should, most likely. And here’s no such a big gap between Naruto Manga’s end and Boruto. Not to mention that Kishimoto is better at remembering things than Toriyama, so plot holes will appear much less frequently.

  • Paul Watson

    We Haven’t Heard About Any Real Plot Points For Boruto Yet. We Just Know Leaf Gets Destroyed Sometime In The Future And Naruto Possibly Dies.

  • Paul Watson

    Super’s Different Art And Animation Are Due To The Large Gap In Years Between The Series’ Creation, And The Advancement Of Technology Since Then.

  • Enturax/Turbotrup

    I’m not talking about the quality of the lines, I’m talking about the overall style of art and colors. Art was really shitty before the new arc appeared, but from what I see, on the other hand the current arc has a washed out/dark colors. As of animation – I barely ever get any DBZ vibe while watching the fights.
