ONE PIECE Life Lesson: I Feel Stronger As Long As We’re Together

Rating:  😀 😀 😀  (3 out of 5 grins)
BEFORE DAWN is the 5th ending theme song of my favourite anime series ONE PIECE, sung by AI-SACHI (アイサチ).  It runs from episodes 82 to 94.

This is a good song by itself, but I don’t think that it’s a distinctive ONE PIECE song.  Of course I know that it’s an OP ending, but I don’t associate it with the series, unlike whenever I hear We Are!.  Nevertheless, I really like this song, although not as much as the other theme songs in the series.

The melody is memorable in its own way, but not very catchy.  The vocals are alright.  I think that what I like the most about this song are the lyrics.  True, the lyrics reflect the series’ theme of “nakama”, but it sounds like it’s more like a love song than about friendship.  That’s what I think, at least.  But I still like the lyrics; they’re inspiring and promotes trust with the people important to you.  It talks about feeling like you can do anything, as long as you’re with your special someone.

As for the animation sequence of this ending theme, it’s not that impressive.  But I like that it focuses on the Straw Hats having fun.  What’s more, it’s the first ending theme song in the series that features Vivi.

Overall, this is an average ONE PIECE song, but I think I’ll rate it higher if it’s not used as an OP theme song.  It’s only because I’m a big OP fan that I have high expectations when it comes to the theme songs used in the series.  So you can say that my judgment is severely bias, but who cares?

What’s your favourite ONE PIECE song?
