A weekend full of anime announcements from Jump Festa 2024 has brought with it a significant tidbit of news for One Piece fans — a new anime adaptation is on the way!
Produced by WIT Studio (Attack on Titan seasons 1-3, SPY x Family), The One Piece will kick things off from the very beginning with the East Blue saga. Check out the announcement trailer below.
As per the production committee, The One Piece will be distinct from the original anime series, providing viewers with a fresh yet familiar experience that will utilize cutting-edge visual technology to reimagine Luffy’s & co.’s adventures.
One Piece is based on Eiichiro Oda’s ongoing manga series, which first began in 1997 and currently has over 1000 chapters. The anime adaptation premiered in 1999 and is still ongoing as well. The series follows the story of Monkey D. Luffy and his journey to become the King of the Pirates as he and his crew search for a mythical treasure.
Given the success of Netflix’s new One Piece live-action series, it comes as no surprise that the franchise continues to grow. In the meantime, another manga created by Oda when he was 19 years old, Monsters 103 Mercies Dragon Damnation, is set to premiere on Netflix in January.
The One Piece is currently in production and will be streamed worldwide exclusively on Netflix.
