Naruto Theme Song
The anime, being a TV show that has lasted many seasons, has many opening and ending themes. These themes have been from original Japanese songs, but they have been edited to fit within a 90 second opening sequence by TV Tokyo. The average usage for openings are around 25 episodes while the endings can be up to 12 episodes with some exceptions: the first two endings for Naruto (Wind and Harmonia) and first for Naruto: Shippūden (Shooting Star Shooting Star). They are shown here in order:
Naruto Theme Song
Naruto may have ended years ago, but these opening songs still play in our minds when we remember the fond memories we had watching each episode. Since the series spanned decades, it had bundles of music for you to blast in your car while studying or sing aloud like you're in a karaoke booth in Japan, albeit in horrible Japanese.
Every Naruto fan (or anime fan in general) knows when an opening is one that will be remembered forever, and we're going to go through each one to decide which will take the top spot for the best Naruto opening, ranked on song as well as the impact it had during the series.
The singer's smooth vocals are nice on the ears, but it isn't the best song to introduce a show about ninjas and action-packed scenes. Also, since most don't know about it besides those who watched it after Naruto aired, it's one of the least-watched openings.
Albeit the song is a little laidback, it fits the atmosphere and mixes nicely with the visuals of the other supporting characters. Though the question remains as to why the boys are in suits, this is later called back in a Naruto Shippuden ending.
It's a shame because the song and visuals are good. The opening mainly focuses on each team and the powers they have, as well as Naruto moving forward on his path to grow stronger and bring Sasuke back to the village. Since the previous openings had a more somber tone, this was a nice change.
"No Boy, No Cry" was sung by Stance Punks and was the opening for episodes 129 to 153. This opening takes place right after Sasuke decided to leave the village and join Orochimaru. The song, which sings of a young boys' frustration with the world, and Naruto's depressed face throughout the opening set the tone for the upcoming arc: Naruto and Sasuke's fight.
"Wind and Waves Sattelite" was sung by Snowkel and was the opening for episodes 154 to 178. Here we have the Konoha 11 (or Konoha 10 because Sasuke isn't there) supporting each other in a time where they need it the most. The accent colors used for each character, especially orange for Naruto and hot pink for Sakura, compliment the opening as well as the song's beat.
The song is pleasant to hear. It isn't that energetic but it also isn't slow. The opening cycles through the memories from the entire 1st season such as Tsunade kissing Naruto's forehead and Naruto and Sasuke's fight. The style coupled with the memories throughout place this opening at #5.
The opening has 2 versions as well: one with Tsunade and one without her. Because of all of the information, as well as the catchy tune and chorus being mainly in English, this opening has captured the hearts of many Naruto fans and remains a beloved theme song sung to this day.
"Far Away" was sung by Asian Kung-Fu Generation and was the opening for episodes 26 to 53. This is the opening everyone can never forget. They scream the lyrics at the top of their lungs. They jam to it in public and in private. Far Away is the Naruto opening that most anime watchers recognize by the first couple of seconds of the song as well as deem the 1st official opening to overseas fans.
It covers the chuunin exams. It introduces the other teams. Most importantly, it gets you excited for what's to come in the story which is the most important thing an opening needs to do. With these details backing it up, Far Away takes the 1# spot for the best Naruto song.
The members of the band are huge fans of the original Naruto manga, and they already contributed their "Silhouette" single as the opening theme of the Naruto Shippūden television anime last October. Masashi Kishimoto, the creator of the original manga and the chief production supervisor of the upcoming film, was impressed with "Silhouette" and insisted on appointing the band for the film's theme.
"Diver" is a rock tune that invokes the nuance of taking a new step forward. The band's 25-year-old vocalist and guitarist Maguro Taniguchi wrote the song's music and lyrics. He said that he loves Naruto, so he was genuinely thrilled with this opportunity. "I can't write a song beyond this!"
The Nikkan Sports newspaper offers a tongue-in-cheek quote from the film's titular character Boruto: "When I think 'Maguro' [tuna], I only think of something delicious, so I was amazed that a 'Maguro' created such an awesome song!"
Taniguchi, 24-year-old guitarist Hayato Koga, 24-year-old bassist Yūma Meshida, and 24-year-old drummer Takahiro Koizumi formed the band in 2008. They began performing in small venues in Osaka's Sakai City. While they were still an indie band, their single "Naimononedari" became a hit. They made their debut on a major label with their single "Shōshahissui no Kotowari, Okotowari" in September 2013. In the following month, their first album Doppel debuted at #3 on the Oricon ranking chart. Their single last month, "Nandemo Nedari," became the theme song for Shiseido's "Anessa" commercial starring model Jun Hasegawa.
As previously reported, Aniplex held an online voting poll to decide the five songs to be included in "NARUTO FINAL BEST," the last theme song compilation album from the Naruto/Naruto Shippuden anime series. The five songs chosen by the fans from a total of 85 entries from the two TV anime series (2002-2017) and 11 films (2004-2015) were announced today for its December 13, 2017 release in Japan.
The album will only be produced for a limited amount of time (until Jun. 30, 2018), so be sure to snap it up as quickly as you can. It retails for 3,200 yen and includes one CD and one DVD that contains textless OP and ED themes, plus a special booklet, special packaging, and a sticker. A new illustration was commissioned just for the album jacket, too!
This will be the second time that Anly has teamed up with the Naruto series, having previously performed the opening theme Kara no Kokoro from Naruto Shippuden. The track has been streamed over 20 million times globally.
