Studio Pierrot was commissioned at the time to animate ‘Naruto’ and ‘Naruto Shippuden’ they are currently continuing to fire into the franchise with the sequel, ‘Boruto: Naruto Next Generations’. With all the years they’ve been taking care of the Konoha ninjas, they don’t lack footage and have released a compilation called ‘Road to Naruto’ which is a punch full of nostalgia.
The video includes a multitude of footage from ‘Naruto’ and ‘Naruto Shippuden’, and many of the scenes have been re-animated from scratch with spectacular effects and finishing, with which we can get an idea of what the anime would be like if it were released today. And of course, they couldn’t go without depth either.Some of the most iconic themes of the series.
