The official X staff account for One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda announced a new live stream for the official One Piece YouTube Channel, titled Anytime One Piece (stylized ANYTIME ONE PIECE). The official statement says that the live stream will show all the episodes from the first episode to the latest and will be available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. The service goes live on October 29. It’s currently unclear whether there are plans for Anytime One Piece to be accessible outside of Japan.
The announcement of Anytime One Piece comes as part of the anime’s 25th-anniversary celebrations. In those 25 years, One Piece has spanned 1080 episodes and 15 theatrical films. The latest One Piece Film: Red is the most successful of the franchise, grossing over $200mn worldwide. To celebrate One Piece‘s iconic tenure, a special commercial was aired during episode 1080, bringing together those involved in the One Piece franchise, including the star of the One Piece live-action, Mackenyu (Zoro). Further announcements and projects will follow.
As fans in Japan will soon get the option of watching One Piece from the very beginning, it’s worth noting that the manga is entering its final saga with the Egghead arc that immediately follows the Wano arc, currently ongoing in the anime. The manga’s Volume 107 which covers the Egghead arc’s chapters 1077 to 1088 goes on sale November 2 and a first look at the new cover can be seen here.
Fans can catch up with the Wano arc before then via Crunchyroll, which describes the arc:
Wano Country is under the control of Kurozumi Orochi, Kaido of the Yonko, and his crew the Beasts Pirates. The Straw Hats form an alliance with the Heart Pirates, the Mink Tribe, and the Kozuki Family to liberate the Land of Wano, but when an old foe reappears their mission is made much more difficult.
Luffy, after facing defeat at the hands of Kaido, is locked in Udon Prison where a surprising member of the Worst Generation is also being kept! Meanwhile, Robin gets an opportunity to go undercover and spy on Wano’s Shogun Orochi as the rest of the Straw Hats and their allies begin working toward the coup they plan to stage on the night of the Fire Festival.
Luffy’s journey takes him and his group to the ruins of Oden Castle where Kin’emon tells them about the past and his plans to battle at Onigashima. The Straw Hats search for allies in Wano Country, but Kaido isn’t going to let them operate freely under his watchful gaze.
