Director Megumi Ishitani Confirms New Episode of One Piece in the Works


The Egghead arc has several fights that will cause an earthquake in the anime industry

Over the past few years, the quality of anime animation from One Piece has grown exponentially thanks to the arrival of new promises and geniuses in the industry who have captured the essence of Eiichiro Oda’s work on the small screen.

One director who stands out above all others is Megumi Ishitani. The Japanese director has become the jewel of Toei Animation, and every time she returns to her old ways, it is known that the episode will be legendary. Through her Twitter account, the artist has confirmed that she is already working on a new episode of the anime.

“We are working hard to bring you another new episode! Thank you for your support. I will do my best!” Ishitani responded to a fan in gratitude. Although we know that its quality will be similar to what was seen in the legendary chapter 1015, the events that the director will direct are completely unknown.

What we can do is calculate: knowing that it takes between 2 or 3 months to make an episode of this caliber and that next week we will see the confrontation between Blackbeard and Law, it is possible that Ishitani returns for one of the most anticipated fights of the arc: the second round between Monkey D. Luffy against Rob Lucci, both at their maximum power and with Egghead as the scene of the battle.
