1 Sign by Flow - Shippuden #6

This song... Oh my god! It's amazing! Fantastic! The graphics are really good, the song itself is incredibly catchy, and the lyrics... They mean so much to me. I'm always singing this song every day and I find that the placement of the song and lyrics linking with Sasuke vs Itachi... So emotional too... The feels! Inventive graphics again and a creative and amazing spin on Naruto. There is so much more I want to say but I'd probably end up repeating myself. I LOVE THIS SONG!

The best anime opening theme maybe ever. The song has amazing graphics with very emotional lyrics. This arc (which is my favorite) easily became the peak of Intensity within Naruto. I almost start crying whenever I hear this song. The nostalgia is REAL.

The song lyrics are so good that first time it filled me with warmth in my bottom heart.

Like flow, english version is good, but I like the opening.

2 Silhouette by KANA-BOON - Naruto Shippuden #16

I LOVE the part where naruto is running through the battle chasing after sasuke and growing into a total boss

Everything from the visuals to the actual song is amazing, and the way they mesh the visuals and the audio is incredible, it basically shows the entire story up until that point in a minute and a half.

KANA BOON is the best song ever! I agree about the part when naruto grows from time to time and becomes his ultimate form. I also like the song and that it's so catchy..

Is the best because the animation,music everything is good about it - Manganime

4 DIVER by NICO Touches The Walls - Shippuden #8

Best Naruto Opening song with the best meaning of what Naruto is all about! A child falling into darkness, then saved by friends and loved ones and once saved he gets ready and goes back to this darkness to save one friend! Definitely the Best!

I ally like diver because it remind me of many things also it shows no matter what when Naruto will loose hope his friends will always be there for him and will help him not to fall in the darkness like sasuke

I love this opening - HollowArrow

Best Opening in my opinion


10 Lovers by 7!!! Oops - Shippuden #9

While there definitely are some better openings on this list, I feel like this one is incredibly underrated. Seriously surprised it isn't higher up

So much in the song and visuals this song needs to be higher on this list

This song should we way higher on this list!

This song should be way higher up, it's so catchy and it's the perfect Introduction, of "Meet the Kages! " and their assistants

11 Niwaka Ame Nimo Makezu by NICO Touches the Wall - Naruto Shippuden #13

Both visually stunning and musically appealing! Telling us to "seize the moment for yourself," this embodies Naruto as a whole.

This song Rocks! For me is the best opening of all time for Naruto.

The best Naruto opening.

12 Yurayura - Hearts Grow

Only reason this isn't number 1 is cause most people didn't watch the original series til the end.

It's the most underrated out of all the intros.

Agreed, love this song

I agree it’s subtle but so good compared to all the rest

13 Tomei Datta Sekai by Motohiro Hata - Shippuden #7

Best one! Best opening ever! It's the first and only one that made me get so excited that I would start dancing and singing along with it every time.
Its build is phenomenal: from Jaraiya writing to Naruto clashing with Pain, everything gets intensified.

Paia. Favourite


This opening is just so awesome! It gets me hyped for the episode and it also reminds me of Jiraya

The best song ever and truly the only reason to watch all those filler episodes that were on during this opening.

Very underrated, I see. - irismatidia

Beautiful... Beautiful... Just Beautiful

18 Wavering - OP 9

Great song, great visuals and amazing arc. This is where the anime is started to first heat up for the war

19 Hotaru no Hikari by Ikimono-gakari - Shippuden #5

This is my favorite by far now

The song is really catchy.

This is my favorite

Sha la la...

20 Kara No Kokoro - Anly #20

Best opening song. It is awesome song.

This should be all the way at the top or at least second

Perfect for the happy ending

A nice ending to end the legend :D

21 Kanashimi Wo Yasashisa Ni - Naruto #3

The opening note to this one strikes your soul like a spear and is filled with so much emotion

24 Size of the Moon - Shipped #14

It's the best other than blue bird and silhouette

25 Guren - Does Shippuden #15

My favourite one! I love the way how it shows Naruto/Sasuke, Kakashi/Obito and Hashirama/Madara. God, the feelings...

This one is the real best of all

Best song

26 Rise Tsuyosa by Jeremy Sweet - Naruto #1

The original.

I mean... who actually skipped this theme song.

The best


27 Wind - Akeboshi

I love this song, honestly I think it embodies a lot of what Naruto is about and the music just matches the deeper side of the show.

This is a beautiful ending, in my opinion. It shows all of Naruto's struggles and has a lot of meaning behind it. The melody is very peaceful and sad, yet its very pleasing to listen to. IMAO it should be in at least top 15, but that's just me.

Eventhough this an ending, it embodies a lot of meaning, and shows the deeper side of naruto, when he is presented as a cheerful kid(beginning). The best ending, so good that it's even in an opening list...seriously underrated! (; ̄ー ̄A

28 Glow of a Firefly - Ikimono Gakari

This song is amazing! I honestly thought this would be number 1. If you haven't heard this yet, I suggest you do it and change your vote!

29 Wave Wind Satellite - OP 7
30 Karano Kokoro - Naruto Shippuden #20

Not only is the song catchy and smooth, but being the last ever opener of Naruto, it also catches the hearts of all the viewers. The animation of brings us through the now-adult versions of the characters who we grew up with. The music begins slow and soft, giving us the feeling of closure and melancholy, but hits us with a sudden fast and upbeat soundtrack that reminds us of the amazing story that is Naruto. The animation ends with the photo of Naruto, Sasuke, Sakura, and Kakashi from the begining.

31 Newsong - Tacica Naruto: Shippūden opening 10


32 ROCKS by Hound Dog - Naruto #1

I mean its like the basic opening so I didn't like the musi so much but still amzing

33 Baton Road - KANA BOON Boruto opening #1

Just putting it out there now that the Boruto series is out. In case if you people are living under a rock, it's basically about naruto's son, boruto
