One Piece anime announced that Mori Calliope, one of the VTuber talents of Hololive English, will be performing the theme song for the release of the manga’s 106th volume. The theme song is titled “Future Island”, and will be performed live first on July 3 at the Yunika Vision in Shinjuku.
“Future Island” is composed by Kenmochi Hidefumi, a Japanese musician, DJ, and a member of the music group Wednesday Campanella. Both Hidefumi and Calliope have worked on the song’s lyrics.
The new music project for One Piece by Mori Calliope comes weeks after she teased a new EP titled JIGOKU 6, which will be released on August 8 this year. It should be recalled that she signed a music deal with Universal Music Japan in August 2022, where she debuted her EP called SHINIGAMI NOTE. She then debuted her major label album titled SINDERELLA in December 2022.
One Piece manga will return on July 17 after a four-week-long break due to Eiichiro Oda’s eye surgery. It will resume in Shonen Jump’s 33rd issue. It also ranked fifth in the ranking of best-selling manga titles for the first half of 2023, according to Oricon.
