  • Da-iCE Perform One Piece’s New Opening Theme ‘DREAMIN’ ON’

    16.July.2020 | ANIME&GAME / MUSIC

    Japanese dance and vocal group Da-ICE are set to release six new songs over the next six months. It has been announced that the first of the consecutive singles, titled DREAMIN’ ON, will be the newest and 23rd opening theme for the anime series ONE PIECE.

    One Piece is a shonen manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It began serialisation in Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997, and it’s anime adaptation began broadcasting in 1999. The story follows Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates as they set off on the seas in search of the One Piece.

    The new opening theme DREAMIN’ ON by Da-iCE will hit the anime series on August 2, 2020. It’s a fast-paced rock song about friends, dreams, and having the courage to take a step forward.

     

    The Da-iCE members themselves are known as fans of One Piece. Sōta Hanamura, who wrote the lyrics, said: “Getting to sing an opening theme for One Piece, which I’ve never stopped loving for over 20 years, really feels me with happiness and emotion. One Piece was also the first time in my life that a series in Weekly Shonen Jump made me cry. When writing the lyrics, I remembered how the series is about the importance of running towards your dreams, and I was conscious of how it also uses words and phrases that are easy to understand for kids. The series also has the ‘Wano Country,’ so I added a sense of Japanese-ness in there too.”

     

    Da-iCE member and group performer Tōru Iwaoka said: “I really can’t believe I’m in charge of the opening theme for an anime series—and a manga series—which I have always and still do watch and read to this day. Even now I still think it’s a prank <laughs>.” The other band members also expressed their disbelief of this opportunity, and said they won’t believe it until they hear the song on air on August 2.

     

    DREAMIN’ ON will be released on August 26, 2020, and will also feature a cover by Da-iCE of the first ever One Piece opening theme We Are! Limited edition copies of the single will be coupled with a DVD that features over 2 hours of visual content.

     

    The single marks Da-iCE’s first release since moving to the music label Avex. The band will also be the first to perform an online 3DCG virtual live tour, entitled “Da-iCE×ABEMA ONLINE LIVE TOUR 2020 -THE Da-iCE-,” for ABEMA’s virtual stage “ABEMA Arena.”
