Toei To Debut The 1,000th ‘One Piece’ Episode English Dub At Anime Expo

Toei Animation and Crunchyroll are collaborating to release the dubbed version of the 1,000th episode of the hit anime ‘One Piece’ at the Anime Expo. Fans of the series will be able to watch it at a special event held on July 2nd at the Anime Expo 2023 in Los Angeles.

Crunchyroll said on their website, “In addition to the screening of the 1000th dubbed episode, the special occasion will include other fan experiences like an autograph session with Toei Animation animators and dub actors Sonny Strait (Usopp), Patrick Seitz (Franky) and Ian Sinclair (Brook). There will also be a live drawing showcase and Q&A with the One Piece animators, a Luffy and Shanks statue display, demo stations for One Piece Card Game and One Piece Odyssey and more.”

‘One Piece’ is a pirate fantasy based on the long-running manga by Eiichiro Oda. The writer entered the Guinness World Record for “the most copies published for the same comic book series by a single author.” Oda’s works have had 516,566,000 copies released globally.

Toei Animation also released a special promo on their official Twitter:

The One Piece Fandom Wiki describes the anime’s synopsis as follows,

“Gol D. Roger was known as the Pirate King, the strongest and most infamous pirate to have sailed the Grand Line. The capture and death of Roger by the World Government brought a change throughout the world. His last words before his death revealed the location of the greatest treasure in the world, One Piece. It was this revelation that brought about the Grand Age of Pirates, men who dreamed of finding One Piece (which promises an unlimited amount of riches and fame), and quite possibly the most coveted of titles for the person who found it, the title of the Pirate King.

Enter Monkey D. Luffy, a 17-year-old boy that defies one’s standard definition of a pirate. Rather than the popular persona of a wicked, hardened, toothless pirate who ransacks villages for fun, Luffy’s reason for being a pirate is one of pure wonder; the thought of an exciting adventure and meeting new and intriguing people, along with finding One Piece, are his reasons of becoming a pirate. Following in the footsteps of his childhood hero, Shanks, Luffy and his crew travel across the Grand Line, experiencing crazy adventures, unveiling dark mysteries and battling strong enemies, all in order to reach One Piece!”
