With that said, THE NEXT GENERATION OF NARUTO BEGINS! Today, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations made it’s Japanese television and worldwide streaming debut. This anime stars the son of Naruto and Hinata, Boruto. The journey for this protagonist will be much different than his father’s legendary story. What future lies for our new hero? We’ll have to experience the new generations, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, to find out! Take a look at the anime’s first opening below.
The opening, titled “Baton Road”, is 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”).
