For the 20th anniversary of the Naruto anime, Studio Pierrot uploaded an almost 10-minute long video titled “Road of Naruto.” As you may guess from the title of the video, it showcases Naruto’s journey from the beginning of the series to the end. Not only did Studio Pierrot re-animate key scenes and fights from the show, but it also features some iconic opening themes.

It starts with Naruto’s final showdown with Sasuke, before the video delves into a montage from the series. The fight against Haku, for example, uses new animation that was not in the show. Songs that you can hear include “Haruka Kanata” (the second opening), “Go!!!” (the fourth opening), and “Blue Bird” (the third opening of Shippuden).

Naruto originally started in 1999, with the anime starting from 2002. It is one of the best-selling manga series in history and is one of the “Big Three” of anime. The other two are Bleach and One Piece. During the 2000s, these three were some of the most popular anime worldwide, with similarities including their shonen genre and length. Naruto Shippuden ended in 2017, and the sequel about Naruto’s son, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, started airing in the same year.

Naruto and Naruto Shippuden are available on streaming services such as Crunchyroll.
