The livestream will be hosted by popular YouTuber RogersBase, who also hosted the cooking chowdown event. The livestream will be broadcast globally on Funimation’s and Toei Animation’s official YouTube channels, as well as the One Piece official Facebook page.
One Piece Celebration
Besides the latest livestream, ONE PIECE commemorated the 100th volume which released on September 3rd and the upcoming anime episode 1000 (confirmed for November 21) with several other projects. One of them was the “TWILIGHT” song by RADWIMPS, which has an awesome music video:
They used it in the recent “WE ARE ONE” video collection, which featured 5 episodes of mixed live-action and with some older anime scenes re-animated into modern animation. You can check them all out (titled by the animated parts):
- Zoro and Sanji in Davy Back Fight
- Powerful women characters of One Piece
- Law, Corazon and Doflamingo backstory
- Straw Hats farewell to Vivi
- Straw Hats joining the crew moments
Hayami Saori joined the cast as Yamato this year, and she talked in an interview about how excited she is for the role and to work with Luffy’s voice actress Tanaka Mayumi. We also got a special one-shot by Nisekoi author, covering Vivi’s farewell chapter. Then we got a voiced manga version of Ryuma’s canon prequel story, who we know as the legendary Wano samuray from whom Zoro got Shusui.
A Hollywood live-action series is also coming, which recently revealed the main cast. Eiichiro Oda left a message for the fans with the release of volume 100. One Piece has had a huge year, and the 22nd anniversary for the anime will certainly be special. As we anticipate the next episode and chapter, we can only appreciate Oda-sensei and everything he gave us so far.
