The official Twitter account of the One Piece franchise announced on October 8 that Junichi Suwabe will play the character of Admiral Ryokugyu in the 1,079th episode of the One Piece anime this Sunday. Suwabe replaces late voice actor Keiji Fujiwara, who died at the age of 55 after battling cancer in April 2020. Suwabe will voice the character in all future appearances.
An ongoing anime adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga was released in 1999. Crunchyroll describes the anime:
Monkey D. Luffy refuses to let anyone or anything stand in the way of his quest to become the king of all pirates. From a series set for the dangerous waters of the Grand Line and beyond, he is a captain who will not give up until he conquers the world’s greatest treasure: the legendary One Piece!
The Wano Country arc of the anime premiered in July 2019 and is nearing its end.
