Here is some fantastic news for One Piece fans as the anime series has recently released an interesting visual to conclude the Wano Country arc.
Needless to say, that Wano country arc is one of the most awaited story arcs of the series. Why? It’s because it features ultimate fight scenes and some thrilling actions that will keep you hooked to the screens.
Wano Country Arc
Do you know how long the Wano arc has been running? It was released in 2019 and is one of the longest-running arcs.
Let’s discuss the key visual featuring Sanji in red attire while our beloved Zoro holds his three iconic swords. Also, you’ll see Trafalgar D. Water Law and Eustass Kid close to each other. Finally, who is standing in the foreground? You guessed it right; it’s Monkey D. Luffy.
The key visual has stirred up excitement among the fans as it features all their favorite characters. Also, the fanbase appreciates the improved animation quality, so they have set their expectations high regarding the concluding episode.
After the release of the visual, Twitter got flooded with tweets about the Wano arc and their character images. Fans couldn’t resist but go down memory lane, recalling Zoro as a pirate hunter who has now transformed into a skilled swordsman.
The current One Piece episodes aren’t just regular filler episodes; the anime series follows the manga with outstanding visuals. Until now, you have seen Luffy in Gear fourth; however, the fans are anticipating for Luffy to reveal Gear fifth to win the fight against the mighty opponent Kaido.
On the other hand, some fans have shown their displeasure upon Sanji being a part of the key visual alongside Llaw, Luffy, Zoro, and Eustass Kid. It’s because Sanji wasn’t there with the crew members on the roof.
Changes in One Piece Animation
We should credit Chansard Vincent, the animator of One Piece, who has worked on multiple Western projects, such as Castlevania, and The Witcher: Nightmare of the Wolf. Not only that, but the animator has also worked on other anima projects, such as Mob Psycho 100, RWBY, Black Clover, and Boruto: Naruto Next Generations.
On March 18th, 2023, Chansard Vincent tweeted that he’ll be working full-time for One Piece for the next couple of months. He also shared the excitement of working with Toei on One Piece, and he has taken a break from the main work in France to work on One Piece.
The loyal fans who have been watching One Piece for years can vouch for the improved visual quality and exciting direction. Are you ready to witness the conclusion of the Wano Country arc? We bet you are.
Stay tuned; we don’t know how many episodes will be released to conclude the arc. However, one thing is sure the thrilling fight between Luffy and Kaido will conclude within the next couple of episodes.
We understand that the fans don’t want the One Piece Wano arc to end. However, the key visual certainly seems exciting to look forward to the incredible finale of the four-year-long run.
