‘One Piece’ New Opening Theme announced

On Tuesday, the official One Piece website revealed that Japanese star Nami Amuro will perform a new opening theme song, titled “Hope,” for the long-running anime series.

Here is the preview of the anime’s new theme song

Amuro previously performed “Fight Together,” which was the 14th opening theme song for One Piece. She also provided the ending theme song, “Black Make Up,” for the 2015 two-hour One Piece special One Piece – Adventure of Nebulandia.

The new opening theme song is set to debut with the upcoming one-hour special episode of One Piece.

The teaser announcement was accompanied by a new piece of art for the special episode, which can be seen below.

One Piece One Hour Special

The one-hour special is set ot air on Sunday, October 1, 2017, at 9 a.m. in Japan. One Piece normally airs back-to-back with Dragon Ball Super, which will have its own one-hour special on October 8th. Each of these specials consists of two episodes of their respective series.

The One Piece one-hour special is titled “Sorrowful Duel Luffy vs. Sanji.” As part of the “Whole Cake Island” arc, Luffy finally catches up with his former crewmate Sanji. However, the reunion isn’t as joyful as Luffy has hoped. While away, Sanji was forced into an arranged marriage as has come to embrace his royal lineage. When Sanji speaks poorly of the pirates he used to sail with, Luffy takes it personally and the duel is on.

This saga has played out already in the pages of the One Piece manga, where Luffy refuses to fight back against his friend. The former chef of the Staw Hat Pirates shows no such restraint and sets about pounding on his former captain, which cause Nami to step in.

However, despite the beating, Luffy stays loyal to his friend and awaits Sanji’s return. The show of friendship brings Sanji to tears. Meanwhile, Sanji’s family, the Vinsmoke Family, and the Charlotte Family, led by Big Mom of the Big Mom Pirates, continue to plot away in the background.

    ‘Dragon Ball Super’ & ‘One Piece’ Special Key Art

    Popular Shonen series’ in One Piece and Dragon Ball Super are both getting two one-hour anime specials next month. Both Luffy and Goku are having their own epic adventures with Luffy’s set to air on October 1st at 9 am and Goku’s will be the week after, on the 8th of October.06adba96f6c617b0e25c95a88aa74b0d1503573241-full-1019710

    As a result, Jump magazine has released this new key-art in celebration of the two having their own special one-hour broadcasts. The key-art raised the hopes of fans of both series’, as at first glance you might assume that the two would get a joint crossover episode. However, that is not the case, but fans will still be pleased with the one-hour TV specials.

    The key-art showcases Luffy from One Piece and Goku from Dragon Ball Super looking off into the distance, with them looking as if they are about to take a journey together on the mountains ahead.

    At the moment, fans are watching Luffy and the other Straw Hat Pirates immersed in their latest adventure, during the Whole Cake Island arc. In this one-hour special, fans will watch as things get quite heated indeed, as they try to stop Big Mom. Big Mom is arguably one of the strongest opponents our heroes have ever faced.

    Meanwhile, as for Dragon Ball Super, fans are currently enjoying the Tournament of Power, where eight of the twelve universes lives hang in the balance. In this episode, Goku will be facing his strongest mortal opponent yet in Universe 11’s Jiren. This will also likely be the episode Dragon Ball Super fans get to see Goku’s new transformation in full swing, as Super Saiyan Blue mixed with KaioKen x20, isn’t enough to defeat Jiren. The upcoming one-hour specials will please fans of both series’, as they get more One Piece and more Dragon Ball Super, which they can never get enough of.

      One Piece Hollywood Live Action Tv Series Announced!

      According to new reports from Yahoo! Japan, Eiichiro Oda has confirmed One Piece will be getting a live-action Hollywood adaptation in the form of a TV show.We_Can

      Hiroyuki Nakano, editor-in-chief of publisher Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jumpanthology, appeared at an event at Tokyo Tower on July 21 to commemorate the manga’s 20th anniversary (One Piece’s first chapter was published in Weekly Shonen Jump in July of 1997). While there, Nakano made the shocking announcement that not only is a live-action One Piece TV series in the works, but that it’ll be produced in the U.S. Handling production on the series will be Tomorrow Studios, the production company which counts Marty Adelstein, producer of Prison Break, among its members and which is also working on a live-action adaptation of 1998 anime Cowboy Bebop.

      At the event, a statement from Oda was presented, in which One Piece’s creator said:

      “There have been talks of making a live-action One Piece movie many times over the past 20 years, and we began seriously perusing the idea three years ago. There were many twists and turns along the way, but we’ve found a good partner, coincidentally just as the manga’s 20th anniversary comes. I am very happy.”

      Oda went on to say that he has placed a condition upon the live-action project, specifically that it “absolutely not betray the fans who have supported the franchise for 20 years.”

      A statement from Adelstein was also presented, in which the producer said that he has been a fan of One Piece for 20 years. He also predicted that the live-action One Piece will be the most-expensive TV series ever produced, and that given the worldwide attention he expects the adaptation to receive, such investment will be well justified.

      No details were provided regarding when the series would begin airing, nor which parts of the 872-chapter (and growing) One Piece manga would be adapted.
