Anime News: One Piece Foxy special and Akame ga Kill box set preview

One Piece

It is reported from the official site that there will be a One Piece TV special on December 19th. The special will be about the return of the Foxy Pirates and the special is titled “Adventure of Nevlandia” . Here is the plot synopsis:

The special with a completely original story will take place on a “Devil Fruit blocking” fog island in the New World that keeps Devil Fruit users from being able to use their powers. The crew will also again meet and have a rematch with the Foxy Pirates from the Davy Back Fight arc. Foxy now has three new subordinates: Dōjack, Kanshō, and Kōmei, the latter of whom is a member of a family of genius tacticians.

Kōmei devises a plan where Zoro and Sanji take part in an eating contest, and the two eat a strange “good-for-nothing-only” mushroom that turns them into good-for-nothing men. The two are then locked in a jail cell. When the rest of the Straw Hat Pirates chase after their imprisoned crew, they land on the island of Nevlandia, which features a mysterious fog made from sea water, and it has the same effects as seastone. The Straw Hat Pirates’ arrival on Nevlandia is also a part of Kōmei’s plan.

So far it is unknown if it will be streamed at Crunchyroll or FUNimation. The director of this special is Kônosuke Uda, the same person who worked on the movies One Piece: Dead Island and One Piece: Mega Mecha Soldier of Karakuri Castle.
