Naruto is one of the most popular and longest running anime shows of all time. Naruto also uses anime symbols throughout the anime and tv broadcasts.

One of the most recognizable Naruto symbols is the Cloud Ataksuki. The Cloud Ataksuki symbol is the identifying characteristic of the Ataksuki clan. The Ataksuki clan is identified by long black robes covered in red clouds, which represent the blood rain the clan created during the wars that brought the justice of their clan. True fans love the fierceness of the clan and their willingness to do anything to achieve their goals. The Cloud Ataksuki symbol will continue to be one of the most popular Anime Symbols. Choosing Cloud Ataksuki jewelry is a safe bet for those that like hidden meanings only true fans will appreciate, as well as those that like more vibrant colors.
The Hidden Leaf Village
A third popular Naruto symbol is the Symbol of the Hidden Leaf Village. The iconic symbol the Hidden Leaf Village is called the Konohagakure, which means the village hidden in the trees. The Village of the Hidden Leaf is also the home of the show’s hero, Naruto Uzumeki and serves as the background for adventures in friendship and conflict as he pursues his quest to become the next Hokage. Choosing jewelry with the symbol of the Village of the Hidden Leaf is a safe investment if you do not know about favorite characters or clans.

Two additional forms of Naruto Anime Symbols are eye jutsus or Dōjutsu- the Sharingan, Byakugan, and Rinnegan. In all three a new symbol completely covers the eye, showing that a new power has been unlocked. In the Uchia Clan, the Sharingan activates when the bearer has a strong emotional connection to another- be it love or hatred. It reveals the heart of the bearer. When engaged, the eye changes into the Sharingan Anime Symbol, the most powerful of the three eye jutsus. It allows the user to copy and predict any observed illusion, magical, or martial art. Our Sharingan Necklace is part of our Naruto Necklace Collection.
The Rinnegan is a revered Dojutsu. It unlocks the ability to manipulate chakras and unlocks 6 new abilities, including the puppeteer technique and the absorption of other’s abilities. Each of these abilities directly relates to Buddism’s 6 worlds. Our Rinnegan Necklace is part of our Naruto Necklace collection.
Another Anime that utilizes Anime Symbols is Full Metal Alchemist. Full Metal Alchemist uses an Anime Symbol to perform Alchemy through transmutation symbols. The drawing of the Alchemist Symbol creates the system of equivalent exchange that fuels the entire show’s plot. In the first episodes of the show, fans watch two boys use Alchemy without understanding the consequences and it almost costs them everything.
The most famous of the Alchemist symbols in the show is the Blood Seal. With it, Edward Aldrich is able to seal his brother’s soul in a metal suit of armor and keep him in the land of the living. It is frequently shown as a way that love conquers all, as well as pointing out that everything comes at a price.
Japanese Symbols, also known as Kanji, also play a prominent role in Anime Symbols. In Japanese, the word Kanji means character, and this character based writing has been used to label and identify important locations, characters, and clans in Anime.
The Dragonball franchise frequently uses Kanji to label important information in both the Manga and TV platforms. For that reason, symbols such as Master Roshi’s and Kame’s symbols. The Z Fighters wear the written symbol of their Master as they progress through challenges and competitions.
The Anime show Dragon Slayer revolutionized jewelry. The characters wear flags that show their tutelage much like in Dragonball, however Tanjiro and others show their affiliation through earrings. Tanjiro began wearing his father’s Hanafuda earrings showing a sun rising. He developed relationships as he trained to protect his sister and become a demon slayer. Hanafuda Earrings frequently show the iconic patterns of different characters. Hanafuda Earrings can be chosen for by their patterns and designs. For example, Shinobu Kochou is identified by the vibrant butterfly design, while Sabito wore a fox face mask.
We have expanded our Hanafuda line. We now have two styles of Hanafuda Earrings and two styles of Hanafuda Necklaces. Click the image to view our Hanafuda Jewelry Collection.
