Naruto US OP #2 Haruka Katana by Asain Kung-Fu Generation

As if Naruto didn’t have a cool op to begin with. Their 2nd OP really shifted the show into a new direction. The OP starts off with Squad 7 looking into the distance when suddenly Naruto turns around to throw two shuriken. Then the scene moves on to show each character in dynamic poses.

It really gave emphasis to the Chunin Exams that were beginning in this stage of the show. Each ninja has something to prove during this exam. They will stake their lives for the honor of being called a chunin. The genin from the village who graduated alongside of Naruto finally make a reappearance.

This was a pivotal point in the show where each character dramatically changed, Naruto set out to prove he’s not the loser he was in the academy, Sakura cuts her hair and Sasuke received the curse mark. Which team is the strongest? Team 7 must prove themselves against their fellow ninja along with ninja from all over the world.

Rough Lyrics:

Hit the gas! There’s no need to finagle, oh yeah!
We’ll go all through the night.
I’ll complain at the end, the balance is zero, oh yeah!
We’ll whittle the days away…

When you open your heart a little, and pull someone close to you,
Your feelings will surely reach them deeper, yeah…

Hurry it up! Wring it out!
Though my legs are all tangled, they will surely take me far…
Even if I steal it and manage to grasp it,
If it isn’t you, then what’s the point?

So I’ll go further and further away!

Hit the gas! There’s no need to finagle, oh yeah!
We’ll go all through the night.
I’ll complain at the end, the balance is zero, oh yeah!
We’ll whittle the days away…

When you open your heart a little, and pull someone close to you,
Your feelings will surely reach them deeper, yeah…

Hurry it up! Wring it out!
Though my legs are all tangled, they will surely take me far…
Even if I steal it and manage to grasp it,
If it isn’t you, then what’s the point?

So I’ll go far into the distance…

Your world will become a thing of deceit
painted all in white…

    You don’t know Naruto if you haven’t heard this OP before. Come on the Chunin exams, that’s what made the show.
