    "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.

    Namie Amuro’s Final Tour to Feature One Piece Visuals

    [​IMG]
    One Piece fans are most likely familiar with Namie Amuro. The veteran performer’s music has appeared in the series three times. Her latest single “Hope” serves as the current opening theme to the Whole Cake Island Arc. Released on February 11, “Hope” is already number one on Japan’s distribution charts. The single is part of a special collaboration which features an anime version of Amuro hanging out with the Straw Hat Crew. Those who buy the single by February 28 will receive a downloadable version of the collaboration art.

    This collaboration also extends to Amuro’s current tour where fans will be treated to a special animation that will play during the performance. Check out some scenes from the animation below!

    This is totally what i think too! XD For me she will always be the 20 year old singer with the cool music! And also im shocked to hear, she will retire this year!

    And Namie and One Piece in combination sounds like a dream to me! I need to listen to it as soon as possible!
