Boruto: Naruto Next Generations has revealed the first details for the next opening and ending themes for the anime! The latest string of episodes have seen the anime continue making its way through original adventures for the anime series, and with them are further distancing the anime from the events of the Otsutsuki Awakening arc of the Kawaki saga. It’s unclear where the anime will be going from here, but it’s become clear that the series will be needing to make an impact for the new year. Now fans have been clued into its next opening and ending themes.
The newest issue of Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine has revealed that the first set of opening and ending themes for Boruto: Naruto Next Generations in 2022 will feature an opening performed by FLOW, and a new ending theme performed by Anly. Unfortunately these first details don’t reveal the title of either song, nor do they confirm which episode will feature the new theme songs, but it has been announced that the new themes will premiere in January 2022. Here’s the announcement from FLOW’s official Twitter account:
?BORUTO-???- NARUTO NEXT GENERATIONS?

This will mark the tenth opening theme sequence and 19th ending theme sequence for the anime overall. The newest opening theme for the series has undergone a number of changes since it first debuted at the start of the Otsutsuki Awakening saga, but now that the anime is moving far beyond it, the new opening is going to need to shake things up. Unfortunately for fans, most of these openings are stylized looks at what’s to come yet don’t exactly align with future events. But because this new theme will be with the anime’s original content, that likely won’t be an issue.
The anime will be moving into quite the uncertain 2022 as the manga still has yet to advance that far into its current Code focused arc. This means it’s going to be even longer before the anime returns to the manga’s events. So while these new opening and ending themes are going to be a great shake up for the anime, it’s also going to mark quite a while before there’s “canonical” materials. But what do you think? Excited to see Boruto get a new set of opening and ending themes soon? Let us know all of your thoughts about it in the comments!
