The official YouTube channel for One Piece uploaded the opening and ending themes of the Egghead arc anime adaptation on Jan 7, 2024, featuring new characters like the mysterious Vegapunk, apart from the main cast.

The opening theme, “A~su!”is sung by Hiroshi Kitadani. The most impressive thing about this OP is that it’s directed by fan favorite episode director Megumi Ishitani and I must say, she never disappoints in whatever she works on and continues to produce banger after banger.

The ending theme, “Dear Sunrise” by Maki Otsuki is a nostalgia ride for One Piece as the visuals display some of the most iconic scenes of the straw hat crew.
