    "Hope," the 20th OP theme song for the TV anime One Piece performed by 40-year-old J-Pop singer Namie Amuro, has been digitally available since February 11. At the same time, her official website confirmed that a "special collaboration" between her and the internationally popular franchise was decided, and posted an anime visual featuring her and the members of the Straw Hat Pirates. Her second One Piece OP theme song following "Fight Together" (14th/episode 493-516) has been used since the 807th episode aired in Japan on October 1, 2017.

    Since she has already announced her retirement from the entertainment business as of September 16, 2018, it is expected to be her last collaboration with One Piece. She says, "I am really honored to join a collaboration project with One Piece for which I have provided theme songs. I would be glad if the adventure between me, who dive into the One Piece world, and the members of the Straw Hat Pirates will be a project filled dreams that deliver hopes and courage to you." More details will be provided at a later date.

    Namie Amuro is a living legend, She's literally my childhood, I grew up listening to her songs. (I actually started One Piece just because Namie sang its opening :smuggrin:)

    Along her 25 years of career she has changed japan's music industry and inspired a lot of people. She's had an insane longevity, while all the artists from her era started to flop one after another, she maintained her popularity in a changing music market, today she's the second best selling japanese solo artist of all time.
    Sadly, last year she announced her retirement from the industry ;( I'm very interested to know about that collaboration project.

    Btw, here is a short 20-minute documentary of Namie's career, if anyone is interested.

    Hope has quickly become one of if not my top One Piece opening songs. So I'm very excited.
