FEATURE: Rock Out with Every Opening Animation from Naruto


 

If there's one factor each hit shonen motion anime wants, it's a rocking opening theme, and Naruto — the 2002-2007 adaptation primarily based on Masashi Kishimoto's manga — has at all times had some kicking tunes. To have fun this reality, Crunchyroll has compiled a brief video (simply shy of 14 minutes) that includes each opening animation from the Naruto TV anime. The openings embody TV-sized variations of the next songs:

 

"R★O★C★Okay★S" by Hound Canine (from 0:00 – 1:30).
"Haruka Kanata" ("Far Away") by ASIAN KUNG-FU GENERATION (from 1:30 – 3:00).
"Kanashimi wo Yasashisa ni" ("Turning Disappointment into Kindness") by little by little (from 3:01 – 4:30).
"GO!!!" by FLOW (from 4:31 – 6:00).
"Seishun Kyousoukyoku" ("Rhapsody of Youth") by Sambomaster (from 6:01 – 7:31).
"No Boy, No Cry" by STANCE PUNKS (from 7:32 – 9:00).
"Namikaze Satellite tv for pc" ("Strife Satellite tv for pc") by Snowkel (from 9:01 – 10:30)
"Re:member" by FLOW (from 10:31 – 12:01).
"Yurayura" ("Swaying") by Hearts Develop (from 12:02 – 13:31).

 

 

When taken collectively, the opening themes act as a crash course for the 220 episode run of Naruto, chronicling Naruto's journey from a rambunctious loner, to his tutelage beneath Kakashi as a part of Group 7, to his early rivalry with Gaara and the fall-out of the Chunin Exams, in addition to the rise of Orochimaru, Jiraiya taking Naruto as his pupil, the introduction of Itachi and the Akatsuki, and Sasuke's eventual betrayal of Leaf Village.

 

Personally, "Haruka Kanata" is considered one of my all-time favourite anime opening themes, however I even have plenty of time for "GO!!!" and "No Boy, No Cry". What are your favorites from the 9 totally different Naruto opening themes? Tell us within the feedback part beneath, and should you're feeling nostalgic, you should definitely try Naruto, which is at the moment streaming on Crunchyroll.
