One Piece is celebrating its monumental 25th Anniversary this year, and fans all over the world will be able to tune into a special event this Summer as part of the One Piece Day celebration. Series creator Eiichiro Oda is now in the middle of a break this Summer to help prepare for the final saga of the manga overall, but there are still plenty of reasons to celebrate the franchise as not only will a new feature film be making its way across Japan later this Summer, but there will be a major event celebrating the manga and anime’s run so far.
Previously confirmed to take place on the July 22-23 weekend (which is going to be one of the busiest weekends of the Summer so far), One Piece Day has revealed much of the lineup fans can expect to see for the new event. It will not only be streaming around the world in Japanese, but will offer an English language version as well. To hype up what’s coming our way, you can check out the special trailer for the One Piece Day Summer livestream event below:
