One Piece Debuts Special Vtuber Music Video: Watch

One Piece is currently embracing the power of idol fame, adding a new dynamic to the franchise. The world of idols made its entrance into One Piece with the introduction of Uta in the film One Piece Film: Red. Now, the anime is revisiting its idol roots through an exciting collaboration with a virtual idol named Mori Calliope.

That's correct, another idol has joined the ranks of the Straw Hat crew, and Mori commemorated this collaboration with a special song dedicated to One Piece.


As shown in the aforementioned PV release, a fresh music video has recently graced the world of One Piece, paying homage to the manga's latest volume. The single, titled "Future Island," brings a delightful retro twist to Vegapunk's Egghead Island. Mori's musical composition beautifully complements the visuals, capturing the attention of fans who are undeniably captivated by its animation style.

Mori joins the ranks of numerous musicians who have contributed to the One Piece franchise, including the talented voice actor behind Brook himself! However, it is important to acknowledge Mori's unique background. As a Vtuber and idol affiliated with Hololive, Mori is not your typical conventional performer.

For those unfamiliar with Mori, the idol made her debut in 2020 as part of Hololive's English first generation. She joined the ranks alongside other beloved talents like Gawr Gura, with her music being produced by Universal Music Japan. Referred to as the "Grim Reaper's first apprentice," Mori left behind the world of the afterlife to pursue her dream of becoming an idol, showcasing her edgy appearance. However, beneath her dark attire and punk-rock style lies a gentle and caring soul.

Undoubtedly, this collaboration between One Piece and Hololive demonstrates the immense popularity Vtubers have gained since their inception. Virtual idols have become a significant force, rivaling and even surpassing some real-world singers. One Piece experienced this firsthand with Uta's appearance last year, as fans continue to adore the twin-tailed singer. If you haven't had the chance to watch One Piece Film: Red, you can now find the feature film available on Blu-ray!

For more insights into the hit series One Piece, here's an official synopsis: "As a child, Monkey D. Luffy was inspired to become a pirate by listening to the tales of the buccaneer "Red-Haired" Shanks. But Luffy's life changed when he accidentally ate the Gum-Gum Devil Fruit and gained the power to stretch like the cost of never being able to swim again! Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world..."
