This is an easy one. Since my #1 favourite series of all time is ONE PIECE by Oda Eiichiro (尾田栄一郎), it’s first ever theme song We Are! by Kitadani Hiroshi (北谷 洋) never fails to make me happy.

As I mentioned before in a previous post titled “We Are! The Ultimate ONE PIECE Theme Song”, I consider this song the ONE PIECE theme song. Just play this song, and I’ll immediately shut up and have this goofy grin plastered all over my face. That’s how much this song makes me happy.
What’s more, We Are! has 2 other versions that I absolute adore, as I adore the original version by Kitadani Hiroshi. Below is the Straw Hat Version:

The Straw Hat Version is the one that makes me the happiest among the 3 versions of this song. I love it because it’s sung by the seiyuu of the Mugiwara no Ichimi. I love it! What’s not to love?
The third one is a remix version sung by Korean pop group Tōhōshinki (東方神起), more known as DBSK. They’re also known as TVXQ, which is so confusing for me. . .but anyway, they sang more theme songs for OP in later episodes, in addition to the remix version of We Are!. Good for them.

I like this remix version because those Tōhōshinki or DBSK or TVXQ or whatever they’re called have hot, hot, HOT voices! Don’t you agree? I think that their version appeals greatly to the female and younger demographic of the series’ fan base.
I believe that the ONE PIECE anime just won’t be the same if We Are! isn’t its first theme song. I think that it’s the most appropriate, most fitting, and most perfect theme song for this pirate adventure series.
But if you ask me which of these 3 versions is my favourite. . .well, that’s quite a difficult question. The original version by Kitadani Hiroshi will always have a special place in my heart because it’s the version that I identify as the ultimate ONE PIECE theme song. However, I love, love, LOVE the Straw Hat version because it feels more personal to fans like me who are so emotionally invested in the struggles and triumphs of the Straw Hats. As for the remix version, I like it but I think it’s too idol-ish for me, if you know what I mean.
Now you know that the theme song of ONE PIECE, We are!, is a song that makes me very happy whenever I listen to any of its version. How about you? What song makes you happy?
That’s all for today, folks. Have a great weekend. Cheers!
