'One Piece's New Opening Will Make You Very Emotional

One Piece has released a new opening, with it surely being one to make fans shed a tear. The entire video showcases all the Straw Hat pirates, with them looking just as epic as ever, however; it will sadden fans to see the way Sanji is shown. From the beginning it looks as if Luffy is desperately running out to something, with that something or someone, being his former cook in Sanji.

The video later goes on to show all the Straw Hats together, looking as happy as ever on Sunny. The pirates all look as if they are heading on their next adventure; however, Sanji is separated and looks to be on a mission of his own. Both Sanji and Luffy are prominent members of this video, with Sanji running away and Luffy desperately chasing after him.

The video also briefly teases some of the epic battles that are likely to come in the upcoming episodes as well, which includes a Gear 4 Luffy attacking Big Mom. However, despite Sanji running away, it looks as if at the end of the clip he returns and comes out of Sunny holding a basket of food for his friends.

In the most recent episode of One Piece, fans watched as Sanji and Luffy went head-to-head, with many of theme saddened by Sanji abandoning the Straw Hat’s. In addition, this battle was highlighted in the video, as was a number of new characters and blackened out pirates who are yet to be seen in the anime. Although, in the end of the intro everyone seemed well, with all the Straw Hat’s being reunited and happy on their beloved Sunny.
