The One Piece anime is getting to close to the climax of the Whole Cake Island arc, and as speculated before by me, the anime is indeed getting a one-hour special! You should all be hyped for this because we’re going to get a one-hour anime special that will most likely wrap up the fight between Luffy and Katakuri. Their fight has been going on for quite a while now.
I have loved every moment of Luffy vs. Katakuri, but the best is definitely yet to come. This reminds me of the Luffy vs. Sanji fight that we got last year, and that was incredibly well-done. Toei put so much effort into the special, and it stood out for me as one of the best episodes in the entire history of One Piece. Surely, this one-hour special is going to be on a similar level, or maybe even better.
One Piece Anime One-Hour Special
From what we know so far, One Piece Episode 868 and Episode 869 will be the ones that will be a part of this special. As we all know, Episode 864 was delayed because of the Dragon Ball Super special, so this is a way to make up for that. Luffy and Katakuri’s fight has now entered its final stage. Luffy has started to gain the power of seeing into the future.
Meanwhile, Katakuri is starting to see the potential in Luffy, and he is recognizing the potential that the guy in the Strawhat is carrying. The new opening for the anime also teased a new Gear Fourth form, and I’m sure this is going to be the perfect stage for Luffy to unveil his new form.
All things considered, this may just be the best that One Piece has ever looked, and I’m so excited because some of Toei’s best animators are going to be working on this special. The staff details aren’t clear yet, but hopefully, we’ll get them as we move closer to One Piece Episode 868.
