One Piece rounded off the Whole Cake Island arc with the previous episode of the series, and now that Episode 878 started with the Reverie arc of the series, the opening theme sequence has seen a bit of update. While the major overtures remain the same, there have been a few additions teasing parts of the new arc.
Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece first began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997. It has since been collected into over 80 volumes and has been a critical and commercial success worldwide with many of the volumes breaking printing records in Japan. The manga has even set a Guinness World Record for the most copies published for the same comic book by a single author and is the best-selling manga series worldwide with over 430 million copies sold. The series still ranked number one in manga sales in 2018, which surprised fans of major new entries.
The Reverie arc will see the return of many favourites as they get together for a major meeting of the world governments. The latest episode tracks how far Luffy has come since the anime began as it shows a pretty meaty flashback to the series’ first episode in which Shanks save him from a Sea King.
