Boruto Anime Ropes In Asian Kung-Fu Generation To Perform New Opening

New ending theme artist also revealed.


The official website of Naruto anime revealed that alternative rock band ‘Asian Kung-Fu Generation’ will be performing the new opening theme of the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime.

The band is no stranger to the Narutoverse, having performed opening themes for both Naruto (Haruka-kanata) and Naruto Shippuden (Blood Circulation).


I hope that there will be a bright future for Boruto and Kawaki beyond the one I read about at the beginning of the first volume. I wrote this song with the feeling that we are running through the present together.

Additionally, the new ending theme song for Boruto anime will be performed by Humbreaders.

When I was in elementary school, the first CD my parents bought for me was Naruto’s best hits collection. I’m sure that was the source of my music, so I made a song with the feeling of giving back. I hope that Naruto and Boruto fans will enjoy it.

Both the theme songs will debut in episode 282 of the anime, which will release on Jan 8, 2022. Title and other details of the theme songs are yet to be revealed. Boruto anime airs on TV Tokyo every Sunday at 5:30 p.m. JST.

The anime is currently airing the Kawaki and Himawari focused arc, which began in August this year. The arc is an anime original arc and will center on Kawaki and Himawari and their Ninja School adventures.

Kana Boon and Anonymouz are performing the opening theme and ending theme song respectively for this arc.

It is rumored that Boruto anime will adapt the Code arc at the beginning of 2023. The Code arc is currently ongoing in the manga.

BorutoNaruto Next Generations manga was previously written by Ukyo Kodachi and illustrated by Mikeo Ikemoto, with Masashi Kishimoto serving as an editorial supervisor. Kishimoto later took over the writing duties from Kodachi in November 2020.

The manga began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016 and was transferred to Shueisha’s monthly magazine, V Jump, in July 2019.

An anime television series adaptation by Studio Pierrot started airing on TV Tokyo on 5 April 2017. Unlike the manga, which began as a retelling of the Boruto film, the anime begins as a prequel set before Boruto and his friends become ninjas in a later story arc.

A series of light novels have also been written for Boruto.
