Where will “One Piece” end? Present on television for more than 20 years, the series will exceptionally see its 1000th episode be broadcast in several French cinemas, the day after its release in Japan. An exceptional event for a French series.
One Piece : We are !
When talking about the greatest Japanese manga and anime of all time, we often tend to talk about Dragon Ball. However, which work possesses such longevity and regularity as those of One Piece ? Posted since July 22, 1997 by the mangaka Eiichirō Oda, and broadcast on TV since October 20, 1999, the series is not only the worthy heir to the DB ofAkira Toriyama.
One Piece is above all this work which, despite its innumerable episodes, always contains an astonishing freshness, whether in the charisma of its characters, the multiplicity of its intrigues and the quality of its drawing. For 22 years now, the series still manages to amaze us, surprise us, make us laugh and move us. A rare thing for such a long series.
As a reminder, the series follows the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young boy who has the ability to expand his body like rubber. His only desire: to become the King of the Pirates. To do so, he then forms a formidable crew to sail the seas and go in search of the “One Piece”, an immense treasure left by Gol D. Roger, the former King of the Pirates.
Today, it has become a popular franchise in Japan and internationally (a live adaptation by Netflix is in preparation), the series will soon offer its 1000th episode. An extraordinary event that France does not intend to let slip, the series is so popular in France.
A highly anticipated 1000th episode
To celebrate the 22 years of the show as well as its 1000th episode, Toei Animation Europe, in association with Kinepolis and CGR Events, has set up an exceptional system since 120 cinemas will offer a special evening One Piece November 21. Entitled Marathon One Piece 1000 Logs, the event will therefore offer a program that should delight fans.
So, in the first place, will be broadcast One Piece : Strong World, a legendary animated film in the franchise, which generated $ 61 million worldwide when it was released in 2009. Subsequently, spectators will be treated to an exclusive portrait of the hero Monkey D. Luffy. Finally, the highlight of the show will obviously be the broadcast of the 1000th episode of the series. However, other surprises could arise during the evening.
As saying that the system put in place is quite surprising. Indeed, although japanimation has been popular in France in recent years, it is quite rare that animated films devoted to river series such as One Piece are entitled to such festivities in so many French venues.
If you wish to attend the Marathon One Piece 1000 Logs, you will have to hurry because reservations have been taken by storm since the announcement of this event, even crashing the servers. Therefore, it is better not to delay if you have a cinema near you that will be willing to celebrate this 1000th episode.
Le Marathon One Piece 1000 Logs will take place on November 21 at the cinema.
