A One Piece animator has said that 2023 is going to be the biggest year for the series EVER. As a big fan of the show, this is huge news and we cannot wait for what's to come.

"2023 is arguably gonna be the best year for the ONE PIECE anime in its 25-year history. From anime-only viewers wondering how Wano will end ... to manga readers desperately waiting to go see that scene adapted (or that one or that other one...) fans will get it all in 2023."
