hueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine’s first 2023 edition reported on Monday that Asian Kung-Fu Generation and Humbreaders will perform the new opening and ending theme songs for the Boruto: Naruto Next Generations anime. Both new themes will be available in January.
The current opening theme song is performed by KANA-BOON, and the current ending theme is performed by Anonymouz.
In August, the anime began the “Kawaki Himawari Ninja Gakk-hen” (Kawaki and Himawari’s Ninja School Arc).
Watch the current theme song here:
Kawaki and Himawari’s school arc focuses on Boruto’s sister, Himawari, who will be attending the Hidden Leaf Village’s Ninja Academy alongside Kawaki, researching topics that haven’t occurred in the manga and are unlikely to occur in the future. Kawaki has matured from his days as a Vessel for the Kara Organization since entering Konoha and the Uzumaki Family, no longer destined to be the body that Jigen would one day take over.
Even though Jigen is no longer alive, the perils that Konoha faced are far from ended, as Jigen’s underling, Code, has determined to reform the organization with new members. Boruto and Kawaki must stand up to the plate in a new way now that Naruto has lost the Nine-Tailed Fox and Sasuke has lost the strength of the Rinnegan.
The anime is based on the Boruto sequel manga by Ukyo Kodachi and Mikie Ikemoto, which debuted in Weekly Shonen Jump in May 2016. In July 2019, the manga was transferred to Shueisha’s V Jump magazine. Masashi Kishimoto took over as writer for Kodachi beginning with the manga’s 52nd chapter in November 2020.
Hulu is simulcasting the series as it airs in Japan, and Crunchyroll is also streaming it. In September 2018, the anime debuted on Adult Swim’s Toonami schedule. The anime will be released on home video by Viz Media.
