After a period of seventeen long years, One Piece anime has debuted a new ending theme song with the release of the much-awaited episode 1071, which featured Luffy’s Gear 5, on Aug 6, 2023.
Chilli Beans performed the brand new ending theme song, titled “Raise”.
The official Twitter account of One Piece revealed the creditless version of the theme song. Check it out below:
The last episode of One Piece that featured an ending theme song was episode 278, titled “Say You Want to Live! We Are Your Friends!”.
Moreover, the release of Luffy’s Gear 5 episode caused a massive surge in the traffic on anime streaming sites globally, resulting in server crashes even before the episode aired.
