One Piece Wiki

"DREAMIN' ON" is the 23rd opening of the One Piece anime and the 9th opening of the second half of the series.[1]


The opening starts with Monkey D. Luffy standing in a nondescript location and activating Busoshoku Haki on his right forearm before jumping into action. Kaidou then appears in his dragon form and confronts Luffy along with the other members of the Straw Hat Pirates. The Straw Hats each jump toward the screen in order, with Luffy jumping up last and throwing a punch toward the screen, and the One Piece logo then appears over a background of a sky and fluttering cherry blossoms.

A wave then comes crashing toward the screen, and immediately following its landing we see Kozuki Oden, followed by shots of Momonosuke and Hiyori over a background of the burning Oden Castle. This is followed by two shots of the Nine Red Scabbards: the first one shows Inuarashi, Nekomamushi, Kikunojo, Raizo, and Kanjuro, while the second one shows Kin'emon, Ashura Doji, Kawamatsu (silhouetted until Episode 948), and Denjiro (silhouetted until Episode 977). These shots respectively end with Kanjuro and Kin'emon jumping up and performing a sword strike in the viewer's direction. Kyoshiro then appears, and when he turns around, we see a background of him shedding tears (starting on Episode 977 he appears in his former appearance with his glasses). Kurozumi Orochi then appears in his Yamata no Orochi form, and Kaidou and Big Mom appear in the background of his shot when it zooms out.

The opening then cuts to a shot of Luffy, Eustass Kid, and Trafalgar Law in Wano, with each of them forcibly trying to pull ahead of the others. The opening then shows shots of Jinbe performing Fish-Man Karate, Portgas D. Ace, Sabo, and a young Shanks and Buggy jumping out. A young Marshall D. Teach is then seen dropping to the ground on a jungle island before performing a slash with his claw weapon. The next shot shows Koby and X Drake separated by a diagonal line; the line then flips around as a shot of Sakazuki and Fujitora is shown. Following this, the opening shows a clash between Gol D. Roger and Edward Newgate that happened many years ago, followed by a shot of Roger, Whitebeard, and Oden. Starting with Episode 976, the images from Sabo onwards were replaced with Nekomamushi and Izou at the back entrance to the the Skull Dome, Marco activating his powers, the Tobiroppo in room inside Kaidou's Castle before their close-ups appear on screen, and Yamato (silhouetted with eyes glowing until Episode 992) with his mask flying off and staring at the screen with Oden, Roger, and Newgate in the background.

The opening then cuts to Luffy standing with an underwater background as he shows flashes of his Kenbunshoku and Busoshoku Haki. Another wave then comes crashing down, and in between the falling water scenes from the episode are shown. The wave then fully comes down, and the Straw Hats are seen in midair attack poses (with Jinbe starting Episode 981). The opening then cuts to the Straw Hats running across a clearing to confront Big Mom, Queen, and King, with the latter two being in their brachiosaurus and pteranodon forms respectively. The shot zooms in on Big Mom, showing her swinging Napoleon in his sword form. The opening then shows shots of Nami and Usopp attacking with their weapons, Robin using her Devil Fruit powers to grab members of the Beasts Pirates, Chopper standing on General Franky, Brook slashing a Beast Pirate with Soul Solid, King and Queen charging to attack, and Sanji and Zoro fighting off Beasts Pirates. Luffy is then seen leaping up to take on Kaidou, and he activated his Busoshoku Haki, which is shown to flow through his body like cherry blossoms flowing in the wind. As Kaidou prepares to launch a blast of fire out of his mouth, Luffy projects his Haki from his fist and strikes Kaidou on the head. Finally, the opening cuts to a shot of a clear blue sky, and an apple flies up to the top of the screen. As it reflects light, the Straw Hats then leap up and do a pose.

  • This opening shows the following before they appear in the anime and changed some character color schemes, either corrections to align them with manga colors or changes that contradicted the manga:
  • Due to the Funimation dub having access to these revised shots early into their adaptation of the Wano Country Saga, the aforementioned color corrections were incorporated several episodes prior to their simulcast debut starting at Episode 941 (barring a brief reversion in Episode 948).
  • This opening is the first to not feature Luffy's Gear 4 since Hard Knock Days.
  • The beginning of the song's music video has a piece from their cover version of We Are! before the song starts.
  • At 69 episodes, DREAMIN' ON, along with PAINT, are the second longest running opening overall, behind We Go! at 72 episodes.
