One Piece Season 21: Will There Be Another Season to the One Piece Universe?
The anime series, that’s been on the air since 1999 and is presently in its 20th season, is among the lengthiest, best-selling, and also most successful animanga franchises ever. This series has broadcast a total of 20 seasons, however, the structure of these seasons is quite uneven, with seasons ranging from 14 to 118 episodes.
Every season revolves around the protagonists in a specific locale and is concentrated on a specific story arc.
The upcoming season, such as the rest of the show, follows Monkey D. Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates on various travels. Its primary story arc, dubbed “Wano Country,” incorporates information from the 90th volume and forward.
It follows a pirate, samurai, and mink alliance to free Wano Country from the shogun, who now has joined forces well with Beast Pirates led by Kaido. Episodes 895 and 896 feature an original story arc called “Carbonic Acid King,” which is based upon the movie One Piece: Stampede.
Although commentators disagree over whether One Piece is indeed the greatest anime in terms of performance, it really is unquestionably the best in terms of commercial success, especially when the anime’s success is linked to the manga’s popularity. So, here’s all we know about One Piece Season 21 so far.
One Piece Season 21: When Is the New Season Coming?
One Piece season 21 has yet to be officially renewed by Fuji TV. There really is no release date set for the said new season as of May 2022. It is in no way implies that the show has been canceled. This anime could be on hold, and no date for One Piece season 21 has indeed been set. It is really difficult to even predict the release date of season 21 because season 20 itself got many breaks and postponements.
On July 7, 2019, Fuji Television began showing the 20th season in Japan. Toei Animation announced on April 19, 2020, that the anime would be postponed owing to the continuing COVID-19 epidemic.
The series was later set to return on June 28, 2020, however, on March 10, 2022, this was revealed that now the series would be postponed until further notice owing to Toei Animation’s entire hacking issue and that it would return on on April 17, 2022.
But, for all the fans who want a little hope for season 21, the anime may get released in early 2023, if we look at the earlier season’s cycle.
One Piece Season 21: What’s the Storyline of the New Season?
Monkey D. Luffy is a rubbery young fellow who, motivated by his childhood hero, the mighty pirate Red-Haired Shanks, embarks on a quest first from East Blue Sea to collect the legendary fortune known as the One Piece to declare himself King of the Pirates. Luffy saves and recruits a pirate hunter and swordsman called Roronoa Zoro in order to assemble his new crew, called the Straw Hat Pirates.
As they set out in pursuit of the namesake treasure. Nami, a money-obsessed robber and navigator, Usopp, a sharpshooter, and habitual liar, plus Sanji, a perverse yet heroic cook, accompany them on their adventure.
Guys obtain a ship, the Going Merry, then engage in battles with East Blue pirates. Everyone else, such as Tony Tony Chopper, a similar humans reindeer doctor, Nico Robin, an archaeologist as well as veteran Baroque Works assassin, Franky, a cyborg shipwright, Brook, a skeleton performer, and a swordsman, and Jimbei, a fish-man helmsman and longtime former man of the Seven Warlords of the Sea, join the crew later in the anime.
Franky constructs the Straw Hat Pirates a new ship called the Thousand Sunny after the Going Merry is wrecked past restoration. The pirates meet additional pirates, bounty hunters, criminal groups, revolutionaries, undercover agents, troops of the corrupted World Government, and a variety of other friends and opponents along the journey to their dreams.
The One Piece Season 21 will continue the Wano Arc only. When sailing to Wano, Luffy’s crew read about the Levely. Nami found an article concerning Kaidou and Big Mom, however, she couldn’t read it since Sanji and Chopper had ripped out the photographs. The group soon came to a turbulent location that looked like Wano and faced a school of huge carp when they sailed through it.
They eventually arrived just at bottom of a gigantic waterfall, where Luffy clutched two of the leaping carp and pulled himself up. There had been a whirlpool just at top of a cliff, and Luffy made Sanji carry the others to safety. As he tried to pursue them, he was pushed back by an octopus who already had aboard the Sunny, leading him to fall into the whirlpool.
Zoro’s crew has blended in with the locals in Wano Country. Usopp is trading toad oil as Usohachi, while Robin is studying to become a geisha as O-Robi will perform just before shogun. Zoro, dressed like a ronin named Zoro-juurou, steps out onto the street as darkness comes. A masked figure cuts down another man using his blade from afar.
As Zoro comes on the scene and smelled blood on the person, he realizes what is going on and confronts him. He then witnesses cops rush to the site in an attempt to catch the slasher, who flees. Zoro tries to direct the police to him, but he is mistaken for the slasher and jailed.
Zoro tries to direct them to him, but he is mistaken for the slasher and jailed. Zoro tries to fight back at first, but then remembers Kin’emon’s commands to stay in his duty. Kin’emon told them when they arrived in Wano that now the shogun, Kurozumi Orochi, had Kaidou’s support, thus harming himself or his subordinates would result in the Emperor’s anger.
As a result, they were entrusted with blending in with the general public.
This was just a glimpse of what is going on in Wano Arc, the One Piece Season 21 will definitely be on this work, but quite further and deeper in the story. This is just speculation because there is no information announced yet by the creators.
