According to translators, the advert shares new information about One Piece’s upcoming episodes. The anime confirmed its voice actors for Oven, Steusen, and Daifukua.

Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece first began serialization in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997. It has been collected into 87 volumes, with a few chapters yet to be included. It has been a critical and commercial success worldwide with many of the volumes breaking printing records in Japan.
A live-action One Piece series is also being developed in the US, and it shared some new updates recently. It revealed that the series will portray the Straw Hats’ adventures from the very beginning, and will take place in the East Blue.
