Update: Netflix has withdrawn the previously established release date for the “Monsters” anime (via pewpiece). At the moment it is unknown if this implies a delay or if it is simply an error in the platform service.
Original article: “one piece“It is a franchise that already exceeds two decades of activity, and in all this time we have been able to follow the Straw Hat Pirates carrying out all kinds of expeditions through the different seas of the world. However, we know that one of the greats ‘ secrets’ of the “One Piece” universe is found in its past, and precisely We will go to the past of Eiichiro Oda’s work with the “Monsters” anime.
There are only a little more than 10 days left until the Monsters anime premieres
It was today that it was finally made known the release date from the “Monsters” anime, information that comes from Netflix Brazil (via @pewpiece):
- Basically, it has been the Monsters file on Netflix Brazil that has revealed that The anime will finally premiere on January 21, 2024. Until now we had only been certain that the premiere would take place during the month of January, so this is great news for One Piece fans. 😋
- I also remember that the Monsters anime will consist of a single episode of +20 minutes duration. Keep in mind that what this one does is simply adapt one of Eiichiro Oda’s old one-shots, so it’s not like there’s much material to really work with. 🤔
- Another detail to keep in mind is that the Monsters anime will be a studio job HEY. And if it doesn’t sound familiar to you, it’s because it’s a completely new animation studio. Why give a studio like this a project like this? Because Its founder is none other than Sunghoo Park, director of animes such as Jujutsu Kaisen, Jujutsu Kaisen 0 and The God of High School. 🤩
The truth is, even if it’s just one episode, there’s a lot of desire to see how this whole “Monsters” thing goes. Personally because I see it as an opportunity to demonstrate that Eiichiro Oda’s work really has the potential to expand through spin-offs focused on other characters, although logically that would require Oda-sensei to practically multiply at this point. In any case, I think it may be a much more relevant premiere for “One Piece” than it appears.
