After the hacking incident that happened a few weeks ago, Toei Animation has resumed the broadcast of the anime adaptation of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece series. While fans are all hyped up with the release of One Piece Episode 1015, it seems that there will be another delay until we see the resume of the current timeline in the Wano Arc.
As seen in the teaser preview from the previously released episode, the upcoming One Piece Episode 1016 will be another recap filler of the Wano Country Arc. One Piece Episode 1016, titled “A Special Episode to Admire Zoro-senpai and Sanji-senpai! Barto’s Secret Room 2!”, will cover some of the highlights from the previously released episodes of the anime.
One Piece Episode 1016 is scheduled to be released on May 1, 2022. As always, the anime will be available on Crunchyroll and Funimation. Netflix has also started streaming the anime, but the library is still lacking.
As for the resume of the current series, it’s unfortunate to say that there is still no exact release date. However, Toei Animation has announced that they will be releasing a new update once everything is back to normal. In the meantime, fans can still enjoy the next episode as it will refresh all the epic moments during the early days of the Wano Country Arc.
