To set the stage for the performance, the background has Monkey D. Luffy’s Straw Hat on top of a treasure chest and some crates. After Kitadani’s initial exclamation, the full band kicks up and he begins singing.

Here is the full performance of “We Are” from One Piece:

The First Take is a YouTube channel on which singers perform some especially notable songs or tracks in a single take. Anime theme songs often appear on it. For example, FLOW performed the Naruto Shippuden track “Sign” on the channel. Man with a Mission and milet appeared to sing “Kizuna no Kiseki” from the Demon Slayer anime

In 2023, there was also a first on The First Take involving Hoshimachi Suisei. The Cover performer was the first Vtuber to perform on the channel. She performed “Stellar Stellar” there in January 2023. Then in February 2023, she returned to the channel to sing “Michizure.” 

The One Piece anime is streaming on Crunchyroll, and the Egghead arc has begun. The manga is handled outside Japan by Viz Media. A new The One Piece anime adaptation is coming to Netflix. Also, the live-action adaptation is on Netflix, with a second season on the way.
