There has been some very interesting changes in the shippuden Opening. If you have watched the raw you will know of wat I speak. But if you just watched the DB version u wont see the changes cause they just cut and paste the opening(subtitled) clip on all the episodes.

Here are some changes that I have noticed: :)

I also noticed something that changed from Episode 11 to Episode 12:


Notice this:



Only Kakashi, Sakura and Naruto

Now Kakashi, Sakura and Naruto as well as Maito Gai's team on the left, and Temari's on the right.

As well if you notice the Dattebayo lyrics have changed slightly from Episode 11 to 12 :P

These and few following posts were merged from another thread

I'm not sure if everyone has noticed this, but the Shippuuden opening has changed since episode 8. These changes are subtle but readily apparent if you pay attention, LanderZ has pointed out one so far.

Silhouette sequence behind Gaara
In episodes 1-7 you can see Gaara during the opening when the rap first kicks in ("hey yo woah you ready to deal with all the risks?"). Beginning with episode 8 you can see the silhouettes of Deidara, Sakura, and Sasori in the background fighting (among others).

Statue behind Akatsuki
When the opening shows Akatsuki's members the first few episodes show a plain background. Now you can see the giant statue.


Has anyone else noticed any other changes? Personally I think it would be pretty nifty if every opening was somehow subtly changed, but that's just me.

There are even changes almost right at the beginning of the intro. When it shows Naruto standing there against the sunset background and the screen pushes left. Before episode 8 it only shows four people, I believe Sakura, Kakashi, Jiraiya and maybe Tsunade, I forget.

On episode 8 it shows the same 4 plus Temari Gaara and Kankurou.

They even changed the part where Naruto first does the whole 'ikuze 3-2-1 Make some Noise'

They changed the color that Naruto is standing infront of and they also kept Kankurou on the Screen longer.

Shep
May 24, 2007, 05:36 PM
right at the start when it first shows naruto, it shows different characters in like a scroll with everyone striking a pose. like it started with just kakashi, sakura, tsuanade and jaiyra (man i hate trying to spell their names ;)), now it includes rock lee, guy, ten-ten, etc etc. I've noticed this changes almost every episode, since i noticed the old woman in there at one point, but the next week she wasn't (i forget her name), then she was again. Maybe that line up has something to do with what "good guy" characters are shown in that week... though i've never seen garaa, so maybe it's only characters naruto has interacted with so far??

but yeah, i've pretty much noticed the changes and have been expecting them, since in past intro's, they have developed the intro as the storyline changes. this is more noticable in the sasukes betrayal arc, but also happens during the chunnin exam intro to a lesser extent. it's good to see they are keeping up this tradition, cos even though i know whats gonna happen, i enjoy seeing the stages change and keep the intro fresh, otherwise when it starts showing sai and yamato in the episodes, it would see weird how they aren't in the intro. I find it weird how they aren't in the intro anyway, since they were in the first episode :/

I love the song.

Fillers here doesn't seem unexpected really, since there's no other place to put them for a very very long time. From what they say over at NF, those that has seen the episodes speculate in that the training-arc will be combined with Team 10 filler fights. Seems plausible, as we'd then get more H/K focus later on. Also, appearantly that temple has some connection to the filler villains? Maybe we'll get some more backstory for Hidan and Kakuzu out of it...

Actually the fillers looks pretty good. Unlike the previous Naruto filler villains,
which ranged from a crazy monk, a giant monkey, a couple of retarded brothers, a phyromaniac, and my favorite "the ultimate weapon" which got distroyed by genin. It parallels the Bleach Bounto filler, which I like better. A set group of villains, with a set goal and since it is a filler no need to drag it out.

I'm hoping, really hoping, Oro and Sasuke will show up during the filler, maybe to take out one of the bad guys, or go on a mission or something. Sasuke is shown in the opening a lot so I infer he may have a small part in the filler.

Here is to hoping for some decent fillers that have potential :amuse

Kusachu
April 03, 2008, 11:02 PM
I sort of hate both the opening and the ending. I miss the old op/ends from the original series. No ending will ever compare to the "Wind" ending though. At least, IMHO. The best opener I think would have to be either the one from the chuunin exams or the one from the sound 4 arc. Ah well, can't all be the best.

Honestly, Haruka Kanata is one of the best OP in the seriers, because it was perfect for the Chunnin Exam Arc.

But sadly... they havent got another song by them in yet. :(

I like the new OP though... Ikamono Gakari are pretty catchy.
I'll go get some more music by them right now!

I love seeing "akatsuki leader" in the opening.

If I'm not wrong we should be able to see him in a few episodes... like in 10 or 12 episodes. I can't tell you for sure that if what I'm going to tell you right now is the real deal, but it seems that the animators are working really hard on opening that will have emphasis on Jiraiya, Naruto and Tsunade with flashback for the episodes where Jiraiya dies, I'm talking in terms of script, not animated. I hope it be true.

This is going to have spoilers being discussed here, dont read this unless you are up to date on the manga.

Im not sure if anyone has thought much on this before so I decided to make a new thread. This has to do with the ending and opening credits of the show.

I was wondering, for a while now if the openings and endings have something to so with what is going to happen in the anime and the manga. Likewise, covers to the manga.

In one of the season openers for the show right before Asuma was killed, the opening of the season was almost the same the part during the fight with the two Akatsuki members. I cant remember if the opening changed immediately after he died but it did change soon after right? This leads me to my next theory.

The current season that the anime is on, at the end of the credits the majority of it anyway is focused on Sakura. We see her walking and running on the beach. During these credits im not sure if any of you pay attention to the detail here but she does write SOMETHING in the sand. Now I cant read japenese but from what I can tell.... I swear to god that at the top of whatever she writes looks like a heart. If anyone can read japenese and know what it is she writes I for one would like to know. :blink

Now in the manga there was a moment where some of the others talked to Sakura and that they need to stop Sasuke to prevent a war. Now after all this entire time she has "it" being brought to her attention. The "it" Im talking about here is that shes been somewhat blind as to Naruto being in love with her.

I was wondering if these two parts of the credits and the manga are related? With this being said, are there any details that can be connected with the intro of the and end credits with the anime and the manga?
:darn

If anyone out there has any other theories Id love to discuss back and forth!

/Discuss

She wrote her and Sasuke's name in the sand.

Kusachu
October 01, 2009, 05:02 PM
The thing at the end says "Sa-Ku-Ra" and "Sa-Su-Ke" it is sort of like "Sakura <3 Sasuke" with Sasuke's name crossed out. Hence, she don't love him no more I guess. And then at the beginning of that one she is drinking "Naruto" water too, so you know, whatever. And yes, there is a correlation in the OP/Ends, but it is really only as valid as any filler info, if even that much.

The opening is really awesome, it showed Madara, Pain, all the Akatsuki, Sasuke, all the Konoha 12, Jiraiya, etc and showed lots of fights like Sasuke VS Itachi and Jiraiya VS Pain etc.

The ending was okay, just Naruto walking on one side and Naruto's version of life with friends pops then later sasuke walks on the right side of sasuke's version of life of his friends and senseis pops on and off.


btw, anyone get a youtube video link of both opening & ending of this one available, onlt the opening and ending, thanks.

They wanna try and block the spoilers that the opening shows by putting clips from the Kishidan ending. Also, some fans think that Itachi vs. Sasuke has more meaning than Jiraiya vs. Pain...ingrates>.>. I'll give you a proper link to both the opening and the ending for all to enjoy if it's OK.

Finally, a Nice quality version I can watch haha. I love the new opening, it's the best one in ages for naruto.

It's a bit sad though because manga readers will be the only ones who understand the significance of what is shown.
No Susano'o which is a shame but we got "Eye Gobbler" Itachi so that was cool.

yeah. and there arent any filler chars in the op
means no retarded yukimaru filler this arc? omg thats awesome.

I've been noticing for awhile that the anime seems to drop minor references to current goings on in the Manga, for example, right when Sage mode was revealed, Naruto was practicing combination jutsu's with frogs in the anime.

About the time Sakura broke down in front of the cloud ninja about Sasuke, that ending with her crossing out his name in the sand started.

It's probably all coincidences in the end but I have noticed it quite a few times.

It might be added later :) Just like Killer Bee and Naruto's sage training most likly will replace the Jiraiya scenes.

I just love this opening, the Naruto manga is finally revived.

I love the new OP, when it was "shalala" i instantly ffwd to the beginning of the ep, ALWAYS. Now I want to watch the OP over and over. I have watery eyes from the moment when Jiraiya taps his feet and gamaken thrusts pein's summon.

In the new ending again, the anime team imply Sakura don't care about Sasuke anymore. Only Naruto stay by Sasuke's side.

You can also watch high quality OPs in yahoo videos. I haven't watched the real episode yet, but from previous youtube links given by you and others about the Openings, these links from yahoo videos comes close to the one I've seen. Links within spoiler tags....

The animation is okay in the opening, but the music is ear gratingly annoying. Worst Shippuden opening music yet. I liked the last opening song and animation much better. Closing doesn't really do anything for me either, I liked the last one better as well.

Well, I'm not gonna say that the new one is perfect, but I definitely think that it exceeds the last one in terms of quality and feeling. Sha La La just got annoying really quickly. If I had to rate all of the songs thus far, then...

Hero's Come Back - 10/10
Distance - 8/10
Blue Bird - 7/10
Closer - 9/10
Sha La La - 6/10
Sign - 9/10

Yeah, Sha la la was not that good...
This one, I didn't quite like it the first time, but now I like it a lot.

Especially with the new order they put in the video (now showing Itachi first and then Jiraiya).
When the song changes, and goes into a more "heroic" tone, and you see Gamaken rising up with Jiraiya.

Pretty epic. :D

For who is curious this is the new italian song for Naruto Shippuuden:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WD_l102oUds&feature=player_embedded

The broadcaster (Italia 1 - free national tv) always use the original video of openings and ending with an italian song.

Text in english:
I believe in me (I believe in me)
Years that we will never forget
passed quickly, but for us
life slips like a movie
...and we are free
to return home in another age
where with our ability
overcome the routine tests
and then we form a team.
My Heart
never tire of loving and repeating to me
to become what you already are
a true warrior.
I believe in me and my courage
that turn lights at every adventure
I still believe all my dreams
finally advance your looks and feel like a new feeling
inside of me but you still don't know
that will begin soon
the new world that will come.
When you will discover that true love exists
and there are still those who resist
shout yet for you
I believe in me.
I believe in me (I believe in me).

Compared to the cool ending we had before this one is kind of a disappointment ^^;

The other one was showcasing Naruto's fighting skills and had something actually going on while the music played. It was a pleasure to watch, I never felt like skipping that ending.

This one on the other hand... Nothing happens at all but Sakura crying and being all emo... Give the girl some character and not just be a crying mess when we see her... I bet you she broke the zipper on her jumper and that's why she's all T.T >.>

I really didn't like the ending. Yeah, grab all the chicks in the series, make them cry and put them on a ending like that. :| It's... almost downgrading, even if most of you will say that it was emotive and/or something like that.

Also, the drawn Naruto was a little random; why him?
It should be something connecting all the women, no? Why are they all crying and poof, Naruto shows up? :|

I like the new OP, that craziness made me smile! I loved the part with
ET's :XD
Also, though just a bit, canon is there as well... I hope they'll change OP a little when we get to canon episodes... I don't believe in it much though.

And the ED I really like, it's like very good AMV (:XD), the EDs are usually simple, and although many people hate it, I'm actually fan of the friendship between Sasuke and Naruto, makes me hope it'll end nice at least in something. And right now I'm rewatching Naruto from the scratch, so I like the recapitulation.
And, ending was actually more canon than opening! Doesn't happen often. Just one picture of MinaKushi though... but from fight with A huh.
and QBmode looks simple but very well.
It was fun listening to the ED though. I wasn't 100% paying attention to words, but I heard NaruSasu and story Jedi somewhere there I swear!! :D

I laughed for five minutes straight after seeing the opening. Not bad, but it totally caught me offguard...I thought the new opening would be quite serious with Kushina/Kyuubi flashback and the war.

Well, the ending is awesome, I like it alot more than the previous ending, it just has a nice feel to it.

Definitely one of the best endings of Shippuuden imo, the last 2 endings weren't that amazing(Utakata Hanabi and U Can Do It were both awesome, though)



The ed I like the song for more than the op, though I wouldnt put it on par with bleach's most recent, not bad. Hopefully back to canon by nov.

That's because Bleach's current ending can not be put on par with anything, it's just that good.:hip

They probably realized that most fans are reading the manga. The anime is slowly losing popularity since the Pain fight. That's why they thought that by showing some cool scenes from future events, they will stop people from leaving the anime and focus only on the manga.
I watch the anime only because I think that it's a waste if I don't watch all of it after watching it all this time.

I don't think that they are only focusing on national popularity. Naruto is a huge project with a huge fan-base. That's why they should and probably are working on the popularity on the international level.
I am not sure how Naruto is doing in Japan, but I guess that when an author takes over his fans minds, it wont matter if the anime is messed up because no one will complain. (this only works on a young audience like Naruto's).

I'm liking the song as well as the animation, but I have to admit that it is pretty strange. Seeing as the story's headed for a war, you'd expect more standard animation for an opening. The Edo Tensei's were pretty funny, and I though the combined seals by Team 7 were awesome, but the dancing I could do without.

The ending is pretty awesome, makes me think they should've swapped the two. Wouldn't be the first time that an ending seemed more suitable as an opening rather than the opening itself (ending 6, ending 9).

By far my least favorite opening of anything........what the hell?! This arc is heading towards events in Naruto that I wouldn't exactly call cheerful.....plus it's just so damn goofy regardless.

THM Nindo
October 16, 2011, 11:33 AM
The OP is really stupid.
I could understand a stupid OP like that during fillers and shit, but it's pretty clear that the canon stuff will be back with this OP.

Seeing how the next arc is one of the most serious one (especially the Kyubbi attack stuff), this just feels totally out of line.

They are also showing too many spoilers, in a very non-epic way! :P



The ED was really good though, way better than the last ones.
