Thanks to Funimation, it looks like you can continue to expand your One Piece anime movie/special collections. One Piece fans can watch their movies like Strong World, Z, and specials such as Episode of Skypiea and 3D2Y. However, it seems like even though Funimation holds the rights to One Piece, they haven’t done any English Dub for the other One Piece titles. It could be possible that Toei Animation will be releasing some past One Piece movies through digital outlets. It’s been announced on Twitter that the 9th One Piece movie One Piece: Episode of Chopper: The Miracle Winter Cherry Blossom is available to purchase and watch through the digital outlets iTunes and Windows. This movie is currently subbed and Funimation has not done a dub, nor released the movie in DVD. This is the 9th movie and it is an alternate retelling of the Drum Island arc where Luffy and his friends meet Chopper. However, unlike other the Episodes series, this abridged version is an alternate story telling where Robin and Franky joins the crew first rather having Chopper join before them. This also introduces Wapol’s older brother Musshuru who serves as the movie’s second antagonist.
Are you going to watch it? What other One Piece movies you want Toei Animation to release?

Greetings anime and manga fans! I bring you news for those who have Netflix or is a One Piece fan. It has been revealed by IGN and Crunchyroll that a live-action One Piece series is in production and it will be in Netflix. According to sources, the first season will have up to 10 episodes and the live-action series will be oversees by One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. Steven Maeda, who worked on Lost and The X-Files, will be the show’s showrunner and executive producer. Matt Owens, who worked on Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Luke Cage, will be the writer and executive producer at Netflix and Tomorrow’s Studio, while Netflix handles the physical production.
Here is a translated note made by Oda himself about the project:
If you thought playing as Whitebeard feels like playing as a tank, you are going to be surprised to see what Bandai Namco will be inviting. One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 is going to be the next installment to the Pirate Warriors series and this fourth title will be going all the way to the Wano arc. Besides characters like Katakuri and Germa 66 being playable, One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 will be adding two of the Four Emperors of the Sea; Big Mom and Kaido are expected to be playable. Big Mom is one of the Four Emperors who clashed against Luffy during his mission to save Sanji from her in the Whole Cake Island. Kaido is another powerful Emperor that Luffy and his friends have to deal with. Mentioned before in the story, Luffy and Law formed an alliance in order to make Doflamingo (one of the Seven Warlords of the Sea) and Kaido fight each other. However, change of plans occurred when Luffy decided to get involved and he took down Doflamingo.

I hope you didn’t forget this game, One Piece World Seeker. One Piece World Seeker is a game that Bandai Namco released in July of this year where players can play as the captain of the Straw Hats Monkey D. Luffy and explore the mysterious marine island Prison Island.

Today, Bandai Namco has just revealed a trailer for the last DLC for the season pass. On December 20th, fans will be able to buy and download the ability to play as Trafalgar Law.

Law will team up with a new character named Roule and these two will explore Prison Island. The recent update will also grant players the ability to ride duck companion Karoo.

You may have seen the commercials through Crunchyroll, Nissin has partnered with Shonen series One Piece and promote cup noodles. What makes the commercials unique is that with a different animating team, the One Piece characters appear as high school students in a slice of life world. Even characters like Brook and Chopper appear as humans as oppose to them appearing like a talking skeleton and reindeer. In the past commercials, we seen videos of focusing on Zoro and another one about Nami. Today, Nissin teamed up again but this time, they got the band BUMP OF CHICKEN to do a music video about One Piece and cup noodles. The song is called “Kinen Satsuei”.
In case you missed out on some game news, I got you covered. With these games slowly but surely are coming out on 2020, we’re getting new information each day. Bandai Namco announced some new characters joining in the upcoming One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 and One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows.
In One-Punch Man: A Hero Nobody Knows, two heroes join in the game. We have the Tank Top Army featuring Tank-Top Master and the brothers Tank-Top Blackhole and Tank-Top Tiger. We also have S-rank hero Metal Bat.
In One Piece: Pirate Warriors 4, Basil Hawkins becomes a playable character. He is the user of the straw-straw fruit and with his powers, he can manipulate straws and use voodoo magic on his enemies. Gameplay images also reveals that characters like Sabo, Aokiji (Kuzan) and Blackbeard pirates Marshall and Jesus Burgess will be in the game in a original story in Wano.
We are a couple of months away until we reach 2020 and One Piece is still kicking butt in the anime/manga community. If you been following the games, you might have heard that there is plans of another Pirate Warriors game. One Piece Pirate Warriors 4 will be the fourth game in the Pirate Warrior series where the story will go beyond to the current arc, Wano. It’s been announced today that two new characters will be joining the game as playable characters. If you been following the series, Luffy has an unique ability called Gear 4 where Luffy inflates himself and can use his rubber powers and haki at the same time to increase his strength and speed. In Pirate Warriors 4, get ready to play Luffy’s extended use of Gear 4 called Snakeman (or Snake-Man) Luffy. In this form, Luffy still uses Gear 4, but he appears slim and agile than his regular Bounce-Man form. Also joining in this game is Big Mom’s strongest commanders named Katakuri. Katakuri is a powerful foe who ate the devil fruit Mochi-Mochi Fruit. With his powers, Katakuri fights almost like Luffy’s style but instead of rubber powers, it’s all mochi (a Japanese rice gelatin). In the series, these two fought during the Big Cake Island arc.
Here is the current playable roster for this game:
- Luffy (also including Gear 4: Snake-Man and Bounce-Man)
