Namie Amuro Performs Theme Song for One Piece ~Adventure of Nevlandia~ Special

posted on by Karen Ressler
Singer also performed 14th opening for TV anime

Anime and manga news source Comic Natalie reported on Friday that Namie Amuro will perform the theme song for the upcoming One Piece ~Adventure of Nevlandia~ special. The theme song will be titled "Black Make Up."

Amuro previously performed the 14th opening theme for the One Piece TV anime. She's also performed theme songs for Inuyasha, Nintama Rantaro, and Pokémon 2000 - The Movie.

The single will be released on December 22 with Amuro's other new single "Red Carpet."

The special will air on December 19 from 9:00 p.m. to 11:10 p.m. on Fuji TV.

The special with a completely original story will take place on a "Devil Fruit blocking" fog island in the New World that keeps Devil Fruit users from being able to use their powers. The crew will also again meet and have a rematch with the Foxy Pirates from the Davy Back Fight arc. Foxy now has three new subordinates: Dōjack, Kanshō, and Kōmei, the latter of whom is a member of a family of genius tacticians.

Kōmei devises a plan where Zoro and Sanji take part in an eating contest, and the two eat a strange "good-for-nothing-only" mushroom that turns them into good-for-nothing men. The two are then locked in a jail cell. When the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates chase after their imprisoned crew, they land on the island of Nevlandia, which features a mysterious fog made from sea water, and it has the same effects as seastone. The Straw Hat Pirates' arrival on Nevlandia is also a part of Kōmei's plan.

Kônosuke Uda (One Piece episodes 1-278, One Piece: Dead End, One Piece: Mega Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle) will direct the special.

The previous TV special, One Piece Episode of Sabo, aired on August 22. The end of the special announced that the 13th anime film in the franchise will open in summer 2016.

Update: The title of the main theme song is "Black Make Up."
