    Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump magazine is going to reveal on Monday that the One Piece anime will get a new 2 hour special episode named Episode of East Blue: Luffy to 4-nin no Nakama no Daibōken (Luffy and His 4 Crewmates' Big Adventure) on August 26!

    This key visual features Luffy, Zoro, Usopp, Nami and Sanji. It reveals that the episode will be a completely new work and feature reanimated scenes since the beginning of the series until the Straw Hat Pirates entered the Grand Line!

    Takashi Otsuka is directing the special, and Tomohiro Nakayama is writing the script. Masayuki Sato is the character designer and chief animation director. The special is commemorating the 20th anniversary of the One Piece manga, and it will also feature anime versions of some manga chapter cover stories, although it's not known which ones.

    "We Are!" will also get a special edition for the commemoration of the 20th anniversary in this episode!

    I hope they do such episodes more often, since some friends would start with One Piece, but don't want to watch 800+ episodes (á ~20min)

    And that way they are able to compress the latest episodes in which "nothing" happens

    I will be looking forward to this. I always wonder why they never animate the majority of these cover stories though.

    I just hope that the cover stories that will be featured will not be the first 2 cover stories and the Straw Hat's Separation Serial.

    Too bad, cover stories being animated is a hoax.

    Anyway, maybe next time we'll see "Episode of Grand Line: Part 1 - Adventures in Paradise" or "Episode of Brook" or "Episode of Sanji".
