Voting has opened for the remaining five tracks on the album's official website.

The 6 confirmed tracks from Naruto Shippūden are Asian Kung-Fu Generation's "Blood Circulator" (19th OP), Anly's "Kara no Kokoro" (20th OP), Kuroneko Chelsea's "Ao no Lullaby" (37th ED), Huwie Ishizaki's "Pino to Ameri" (38th ED), Ayumikurikamaki's "Tabidachi no Uta" (39th ED), and Swimy's "Zetsu Zetsu" (40th ED).
A limited edition version of the collection will be produced until June 30, 2018, and will include a DVD with no-credit opening and ending videos, special package design, and a booklet.
The original Naruto anime debuted in 2002 and aired for 220 episodes over 5 seasons. Naruto Shippūden aired for 21 seasons, ending on the 500th episode in March 2017. Both were based on the original manga by Masashi Kishimoto and produced by Studio Pierrot.
An anime series revolving around Naruto's son and the next generation of shinobi, Boruto: Naruto Next Generations, is currently airing, and is available for streaming on Hulu and Crunchyroll. The series is based on writer Ukyō Kodachi and artist Mikie Ikemoto's Boruto spinoff manga.
