The anime “One Piece” will reach 1,000 episodes with the broadcast on November 21, 2021. A specially produced “Anime Broadcast 1000 Episode Commemorative Visual” was released in commemoration, and comments arrived from Fuji TV organization department Matsuki Ghana and Toei Animation Hiroaki Shibata.
“One Piece” started broadcasting on October 20, 1999. The original manga has just reached the release of 100 volumes of comics the other day, but anime will also reach a significant milestone at the same time. It is unusual for an anime based on a manga that is still being serialized to be continuously broadcast for such a long time.
The “Anime Broadcast 1000 Episode Commemorative Visual” released this time will appear as the first-anniversary plan to reach 1,000 episodes. It is a masterpiece that depicts 10 Straw Hat Pirates, including Luffy, and the members of the Beasts Pirates, including Kaido, in a form facing them. From October 24, several people will broadcast this visual in a countdown system every week toward 1,000 episodes at the end of the anime “One Piece.”
In addition, “One Piece” will continue to prepare various anniversary plans to reach 1,000 episodes. I look forward to future announcements.
It has been 22 years since the first episode was broadcast. We were able to come this far with the “intention to be inherited” by the anime staff who have been involved and the passion of the viewers who supported us. We want to take this opportunity to thank you. The times have changed, but the goodness of “ONE PIECE” hasn’t changed … The anime “One Piece,” which has reached a turning point, will become more and more exciting in the future, so please continue to support us!
The anime “One Piece,” which started broadcasting in October 1999, has finally reached 1000 episodes! We want to thank all the viewers who have watched over and supported Luffy’s adventures so far.
