One Piece Celebrates the 25th Anniversary of Anime

Even though Eiichiro Oda’s original manga for One Piece premiered in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine 25 years ago, the series is currently preparing to mark the 25th anniversary of its anime with some significant projects in the works. The anime adaptation of One Piece first launched in Japan in October 1999, and it has since gone to great heights. There are some huge plans for the future as the anime gets prepared to enter its next stage with Luffy and the Straw Hats ready to leave the Land of Wano.

One Piece has announced a new 25th Anniversary celebration, beginning with a new stream of episodes that will be broadcast at all times, a new tournament for its official trading card game, and eight more initiatives to be disclosed at a later date. The anime is nearing completion of the Final Saga of Eiichiro Oda’s original manga (which is currently nearing the end of its first major arc for Luffy and the others), thus it will be an important anniversary.

How to Watch One Piece

The Wano Country arc of One Piece is finally nearing the ending in the anime, but no new arcs from the Final Saga have been teased. That also means there’s plenty of time to catch up before Luffy and the others depart Wano, and you can watch the full series so far on Crunchyroll (along with an English dub, specials, and movies). They tease the One Piece anime in this way:

“Monkey D. Luffy will not let anyone or anything stand in his way of becoming the king of all pirates.” With a course set towards the dangerous seas of the Grand Line and beyond, this is one captain who will not rest until he has claimed the greatest treasure on Earth: the Legendary One Piece!” In terms of the One Piece manga, the three most recent chapters are free (while the rest of the series requires a paid subscription) through Viz Media’s digital Shonen Jump collection.
