This year's 18th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine revealed on Monday that Asian Kung-Fu Generation will perform the new opening theme song for the Naruto Shippūden television anime series starting in May. The new theme song is titled "Blood Circulator."
Asian Kung-Fu Generation previously performed the second opening theme song "Haruka Kanata" for the Naruto television anime series, and the ending theme song for the Road to Ninja: Naruto the Movie film. The group has also performed theme songs for Bleach, ERASED, Fullmetal Alchemist, The Tatami Galaxy, and Tekkonkinkreet.
The anime started its airing of the Naruto Shippūden: Itachi Shinden-hen: Hikari to Yami arc on March 3. The arc adapts Takashi Yano's two-volume Naruto spinoff novels Itachi Shinden, which tell the story of Itachi before the start of the manga.
