The endless and ever-expanding sea adventure of Straw Hat Pirates has kept us going for decades. ‘One Piece’ has a simple plot when you look at it as a young pirate searching for a hidden treasure. The journey is where things become complex over time.
‘One Piece Day’ is an annual event held for the ‘One Piece’ franchise on July 22. The day was acknowledged by the Japan Anniversary Association in 2017.
On Monday, Bandai Namco, Shueisha, and Toei Animation confirmed that they will hold ‘One Piece Day’ once again this year. It will be a two-day event that will take place on July 21 and July 22 at the Tokyo Big Sight convention center. The event will also be live streamed on YouTube.
The announcement video gives a quick overview of the events that will be held. You can apply for a free ticket (electronic ticket), although you would still have to pre-register for the event.
The seats are limited (600 for Day 1 and 7000 for Day 2), and tickets will be allotted by lottery if the applications exceed the capacity.
For Day 1, a special screening of the film ‘Once Piece Film Red’ will be held in the evening. The event will be a ‘cheering screening’, which means that the audience is allowed to shout and cheer.
Day 2 will have multiple events, including a ‘special stage’ with cast members. Fans can expect new announcements and content reveals on this day. A live tournament, called ‘One Piece Bounty Rush’ will also be held where 16 teams will aim for the top.
I am sure this event will not only be exciting but also share some entirely new announcements. We have been waiting for a trailer for the Netflix live-action – What’s better than ‘One Piece Day’ to finally uncover everything about it?
About One Piece
One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.
The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!
Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
