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

Opening

The opening starts with Monkey D. Luffy standing in a nondescript location and activating Busoshoku Haki on his right forearm before jumping into action. Kaido 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. 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. Kurozumi Orochi then appears in his Yamata no Orochi form, and Kaido 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.

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. 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 Kaido, and he activated his Busoshoku Haki, which is shown to flow through his body like cherry blossoms flowing in the wind. As Kaido prepares to launch a blast of fire out of his mouth, Luffy projects his Haki from his fist and strikes Kaido 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.
