I actually like the song Kaze wo Sagashite. There's a lot of negativity to the song that I don't think it really deserves. I agree that it didn't totally fit the mood of Impel Down, but it wasn't bad music like many people are saying. As for the current opening, I enjoy it, but I think it's a bit long. I'm not sure if they'll trim it some in the future, but a 3 minute opening song is a bit much.
Then again One Piece normally has it's 5 minute recap time, so if the opening cuts into that I can't complain.
