The premiere will include only the 61 episodes corresponding to the “East Blue Saga”, and the statement did not specify whether the series will have dubbing into Latin Spanish. For his part, Eiichiro Oda has published the manga in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine since July 1997. The franchise has inspired multiple adaptations to other media, the main one being the anime that has been broadcast since October 1999 and whose Production has been run by Toei Animation Studios ever since.
Previously, Oda had already reported that serialization would have multiple pauses due to the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic. This also affected the release of the ninety-seventh compilation volume, which will be delayed from September 4 to September 16 this year.
