After a one-week hiatus, the popular anime series Boruto: Naruto Next Generations is back with new episodes as Boruto and his friends with kinetic, new opening and closing credit sequences.
As Boruto and his ninja buddies prepare for a fresh round of fights, the remaining members of Kara -- the secret society founded by Isshiki Otsutsuki -- are revealed. As the threat to the ninja order enters the fray, led by Isshiki possessing the monk Jigen's body as his new vessel, the mysterious Kawaki appears. Viz Media has shared the opening theme "Baku" by Ikimonogakari and the more tranquil closing theme "Answers" by mol-74 are below.

Kawaki's full introduction to the anime last year set up the new "Vessel" story arc, with the man intended to become the next host for Isshiki's soul. This sets him on a collision course with Boruto and his father Naruto which is poised to shake the ninja family to its core.
Filled with cool, colorful action, the opening and closing sequences are set to run with Episodes 181-205 for the anime series, hinting at the opening battles for the heroes and shocking twists and turns as the fight against the Kara intensifies. No longer the mischievous ninja, the new arc will test Boruto and his friends in the ultimate crucible.
Boruto: Naruto Next Generations releases new episodes on Sundays on Hulu and Crunchyroll.
