Attention: Spoilers for the Egghead arc of the One Piece manga
In recent years, the quality of anime animation in One Piece has significantly improved, thanks to the emergence of new talents in the industry who have successfully captured the essence of Eiichiro Oda’s work on the small screen.
One standout individual in this regard is Megumi Ishitani. The Japanese director has become a prized asset at Toei Animation, and whenever she takes the helm, fans can expect a legendary episode. 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. While the specific details of the episode she is directing remain unknown, fans can anticipate a level of quality similar to the legendary chapter 1015.
Considering that it takes between 2 to 3 months to produce an episode of this caliber, and with the upcoming confrontation between Blackbeard and Law, it’s plausible that Ishitani may return for one of the most anticipated fights of the arc: the second round between Monkey D. Luffy and Rob Lucci, both at their peak strength, with Egghead as the battleground.
