List of One Piece episodes (season 7)
The seventh season of the One Piece anime series are produced by Toei Animation and directed by Kōnosuke Uda adapted from Eiichiro Oda's manga of the same name. The season was released in Japan as a single chapter, called "Escape! The Naval Fortress & The Foxy Pirate Crew". It deals with the Straw Hat Pirates' infiltration of and escape from a Marine fortress to reclaim their confiscated treasure. The Straw Hats later meet Foxy the Silver Fox and his crew, who challenges them to the Davy Back Fight, a competition involving battles between Foxy's crew and Luffy's crew. Soon after, they encounter Admiral Aokiji, a Marine admiral who is determined to capture Nico Robin, but spares the crew after defeating Luffy.
The season began broadcasting on Fuji Television on June 20, 2004 and ended March 27, 2005, lasting 33 episodes. One Piece began airing in high definition, wide screen format with the premiere of the 207th episode. Despite this, the Japanese DVD release remained in 4:3 fullscreen format until the beginning of the 8th season. The beginning of this season (through to 205) has had an English-language release by Funimation Entertainment. In October 2011, FUNimation announced they had acquired the remaining episodes of this season, along with the entirety of the following season for release as part of their own US "Season Four". The press release stated that the episodes would be featured in 16:9 widescreen starting with episode 207 as had been originally broadcast. The press release also mentioned that the episodes would be released in "HD" hinting at a possible Blu-ray release, but made no direct mention of the high definition disc format. One Piece also made its return to the new Toonami on May 18, 2013, continuing from episode 207.
The episodes use four pieces of theme music throughout the series. The first opening theme, titled "Bon Voyage" by Bon-Bon Blanco, and the ending theme, titled "Dreamship" and performed by Aiko Ikuta continues to be used for the beginning of the season. The second opening and ending themes, used from episode 207 onwards, are "Kokoro no Chizu" (ココロのちず?, lit. Map of the Heart) and "Mirai Koukai" (未来航海?, lit. Future Voyage), respectively performed by Boystyle and Tackey & Tsubasa.
