One Piece started back in 1997 and has been one of the most popular Shonen Jump franchises. Its anime adaptation followed only two years later and continued to grow alongside the series created by Eiichiro Oda. As it continued to catch up with the manga, it introduced various filler arcs to bridge the time. Still, it managed to catch up with the manga once again as we entered the Wano arc. Inspired by Japan’s Edo period, the new storyline sees the conflict between Luffy and Kaido, which seeds were first planted in Punk Hazard. Just like the manga, the anime has also passed the 1,000 mark, and to celebrate, we got a brand new key art teasing their ongoing conflict.
The new key art includes the Tobiroppo and Lead Performers alongside Kaidu. After their conflict started what feels like half an eternity, Luffy is finally gunning for his head. This time around, he is joined by fellow pirates from the Worst Generation and Yamato. The latter might be the most popular new addition to the series, as she’s the daughter of Kaido. Yet, she claims to be Oden and wants to take vengeance upon her own father. Here’s hoping the wait isn’t too long to witness the final push to win the raid on Onigashima.
