Fans are divided over the newly revealed trailer for One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda’s new Monsters anime adaptation, scheduled to release on Netflix on January 21, 2024.
The release of the new Monsters trailer, seen below, was met with a mixed reception following its recent release. The full cast of the anime has been revealed, with Ryuma played by Yoshimasa Hosoya, along with Flare (Kana Hanazawa), Shirano (Hiroki Tochi), DR (Mitsuaki Madono) and Master (Katsuhito Nomura). Unfortunately, for some fans, the excitement for the series ended there, with the transitions between cuts and the constant color filtering effects considered awkward by fans. However, as one of Oda’s first works and Sunghoo Park’s first directorial effort since the Jujutsu Kaisen series, many are also excited about the upcoming release.

The one-episode Monsters anime will be Park’s first project since founding E&H Production and leaving MAPPA. The clear aim of the new animation studio is to ensure that animators enjoy their world so that viewers can get maximum benefit from watching. Takashi Kojima (Heike Monogatari) is responsible for the character designs for the Monsters, while Hiroaki Tsutsumi is in charge of the soundtrack.
Monsters kicks off a successful year for One Piece in 2024. Fans can expect more information about the series’ anime reboot, titled The One Piece, and the live-action second installment of the year today, while the “Egghead” arc of the current anime series has been a huge hit with fans, becoming the highest-rated episode of the entire series to date. Additionally, in Oda’s New Year’s letter, he teased a big battle in the One Piece manga in 2024. With his teases in previous years, fans can definitely look forward to waiting for a blockbuster movie to be shown.
