With the war of Onigashima having finally begun, One Piece finally reveals the release date for its much-awaited 1000th episode.
The One Piece anime is fast approaching the incredible milestone of hitting 1000 episodes later this week. As expected, the studio working on the anime, Toei Animation, has plans to make the episode special for all the fans who have journeyed alongside the Straw Hat Pirates for years now.
One Piece episode 1000 will finally be airing on November 21, 2021.
Along with the release date of the grand episode of the anime, the official account for One Piece also posted a key visual, featuring the war of Onigashima between the Straw Hat Pirates, led by Luffy, and Yonko Kaido's Beasts Pirates. The key visual was partially drawn by the new character designer for One Piece, Midori Matsuda, who took the helm after Toshinori Fukusawa stepped down at the beginning of the Wano Country arc. Along with Matsuda, the Chief Animation Supervisor, Keiichi Ichikawa worked on the other half of the visual, covering the Beasts Pirates.
The anime staff for One Piece is known to have stepped up its efforts lately to deliver the best possible experience to the fans. Given that the anime is just over a week away from its 1000th episode, Toei Animation is expected to deliver quite a decent experience to the fans. The episode is going to cover the Onigashima Raid following the first blood being drawn by the Akazaya Nine on Yonko Kaido. With the Beasts Pirates taken by surprise, the Straw Hat Pirates are likely to soon take the stage the more the story moves closer to the monumental episode.
Earlier this year, the One Piece manga also reached its 1000th chapter and has continued to heat up ever since. Although the war had barely begun in the anime, with a dedicated staff led by series director Tatsuya Nagamine and an incredibly talented staff, fans can rest assured that the anime will deliver, as it has been doing for quite a while now. The staff listing for the 1000th episode of the series hasn't been revealed yet. The One Piece anime has been continuously popular for decades since its debut in 1999. With the war of Wano Country, the story is finally entering its final phase.
According to the creator of One Piece, Eiichiro Oda, the series is finally entering its endgame and Luffy's journey is edging closer to the end with each passing chapter. If Oda's words are to be believed, the manga will wrap up within 5 years, closely followed by the anime. Toei Animation continues to ensure the series goes out in style by delivering top-quality episodes almost every other week.
One Piece episode 1000 is set to premiere on November 21, 2021.
