[TRANS] 120213 Japan’s Favourite “One Piece” Theme Song Ranking

In a blink of an eye, the popular Japanese comic“One Piece” has been with us for 13 years. In this time, many top artists have performed the theme song for this anime.  So, which theme song did the Japanese choose as their favourite? To find out, the Japanese “goo ranking” website ran a poll for “Japan’s favourite ‘One Piece’ theme song”

The survey showed that the 1999 theme song “We Are” by Hiroshi Kitadani is the top song. This song is the first theme song for the anime, and left a deep impression on everyone. Last year, encouraged by the fans, Hiroshi Kitadani was once again reunited with “One Piece” after 12 years, performing the theme song “We Go!”. At number 2 was Folder5’s “Believe”, which was the theme song after “We are” and was used from 2000-2002.

A point to note was the no. 3 and no.  5 song, “Share The World” and “We Are~ One Piece Anime 10th Anniversary Ver.” Both these songs were performed by the Korean idol group Tohoshinki, and their songs were used as the theme of “One Piece” from 2008 through till 2009. Also, including “Asu Wa Kuru Kara” which was at no. 7, Tohoshinki took 3 spots in the top 10, once again proving the influence of the Korean wave in Japan.
