BON VOYAGE: Chase our Dreams Together!

Rating:  😀 😀 😀  (3 out of 5 grins)
BON VOYAGE! is the fourth opening theme song of my favourite anime series ONE PIECE, sung by Bon-Bon Blanco.  This theme song runs from episodes 169 to 206.

This is definitely a ONE PIECE song through and through.  Although Kitadani Hiroshi’s We Are! is still the ultimate OP song, BON VOYAGE! fits the series’ theme.

Lyrics-wise, it’s a great song that focuses on the ONE PIECE theme of chasing one’s dreams courageously, always looking forward.  In extension, it also speaks about leaving the past behind and just focusing on the distant horizon of dreams together.

I also think that it’s catchy.  Whenever I hear the chorus part “Bon Voyage!”, I’m immediately reminded of ONE PIECE.  I’m not too fond of the vocals, but I guess it works for the whole song.  I think that my favourite is the energetic drums.  It really makes you feel excited before you watch the episode.

The animation in the opening sequence is also rather good.  You’ll notice that it focuses on the Straw Hats, as individuals and of course, together as a pirate crew.  I think that’s important because the song speaks about chasing their dreams together.

Overall, I really like BON VOYAGE! by Bon-Bon Blanco.  It’s not the best theme song, but it really fits the theme of ONE PIECE, which is very important to an OP fan like me.

    1. Just checked out the English version of BON VOYAGE. First time hearing it. Yes, I think I prefer it than the original Japanese version just because of the vocals. Anyway, thanks for dropping by. Cheers!
