While Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga is getting more intense, it seems that the anime adaptation of the series has bumped into a big stone. For those who are still not aware, Toei Animation, the studio behind the production of the One Piece anime series, has announced that there’s a system failure due to unauthorized access to their network. This hacking results in the suspension of some internal systems, resulting in the delayed release of some anime series, including the One Piece anime.

One Piece Episode 1014 titled “Marco’s Tears! The Bond of the Whitebeard Pirates!” was supposed to air today, March 13, 2021. However, due to the hacking of the Toei Animation network, the studio has decided to temporarily postpone the airing of the said episode.

So, when will we see the return of the new episode? Unfortunately, Toei Animation did not reveal the exact resume date of the One Piece anime. However, fans should mark their calendars on March 20th, as Toei Animation said on their social media accounts that they will be revealing more details about the hacking.

Apart from the One Piece anime, the schedules of Dragon Quest Dai no Daibouken, Delicious Party Pretty Cure, and Digimon Ghost Game are also affected. Similar to the One Piece anime, Toei will also reveal more details about the airing of the mentioned anime.
