The official Twitter account of One Piece brought exciting news for the fans. In addition, major details came along with it. The new opening is titled “PAINT,” and it will be performed by a rock group, “I Dont Like Mondays.” However, not much is known about which episode will feature the track.

Boruto: Naruto Next Generations had already made a few changes in the opening theme, which fans did not fail to notice. The series is finished with the Otsutsuki Awakening arc of the Kawaki Saga and will begin a chapter soon. The new opening theme is a composition that will receive a performance by the rock band FLOW. However, this is not all, and there has been a change in the ending soundtrack too. The ending theme will be the work of Anly. No titles have been finalized yet for intros and outros.
What Arcs Will The Themes Take On?
“PAINT” will be a follow-up of the track, “Dreamin On.” The latter was played during the second phase of the Wano Country arc and stayed for a total of 60 episodes.

The makers are great at keeping the fans hooked, as previously, this arc also featured a remake of the first opening theme.
Boruto has taken a quite new turn in the series of events of the plot. The new episodes might have a fresh new story from the anime. The news first broke out in the Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump. The magazine states the artists behind the new tracks. Plus, the opening themes have gone through various changes during its last arc, so fans are not yet sure how long the new one will stay.
In addition, no information about which story arc will take it up has also been out. As the manga is yet to get to the Code-focused arc, the anime might also not launch anytime soon. Till then, fans can enjoy the tracks, which will release on January 9, 2022. While both the anime have completed decades in the industry, even the smallest details still make up huge news stories. Now, One Piece kicks off this year with a new track, Boruto’s episodes might take a little longer. So, fans might have to wait for its premiere.
