A possible translation error in a post from the official One Piece account is going viral after being read as a threat in English.
The post, found on X (formerly Twitter), likely aimed to promote the upcoming One Piece “Egghead” arc release date by writing: “You can watch the latest episodes on Netflix on January 13.” However, instead it says: “You will watch the latest episodes on Netflix on January 13.” Additionally, the One Piece marketing team eventually lost patience with the fan base and resorted to force. On the contrary, fans quoted the post with humorous responses to the sudden demanding tone. While some feigned offense, many responded with enthusiastic obedience.
New One Piece OP “The Omen” Death doesn’t even appear in the Manga
One Piece fans believe that the new opening song is a preview of the new Devil Fruit for Vivi, spelling the death of a character never even seen in the manga.
One Piece, a manga and anime series created by Eiichiro Oda, tells the story of Monkey D. Luffy, an energetic and ambitious young pirate whose goal is to become the Pirate King by finding the treasure. The legendary treasure is called One Piece. Luffy gained the ability to stretch his body like rubber after accidentally eating a Devil Fruit. During his journey, he assembles a diverse and eccentric crew, each with their own dreams and abilities. The crew sails the Grand Line, a dangerous and mysterious sea, and must face powerful enemies, the World Government and other pirates.
The “Egghead Island” arc, also known as the “Future Island” arc, is the 32nd story arc in One Piece and the first arc of the Final Saga. It begins with the Straw Hat pirates following the Log Pose compass to Egghead, a mysterious futuristic island home to the brilliant Dr. Vegapunk. They eventually become deeply involved in a conspiracy involving the World Government. This plot sets the stage for many characters to enter their final stages of development and creates tension surrounding the upcoming war.
Why doesn’t Eiichiro Oda do death scenes in One Piece
One Piece author Eiichiro Oda explains why he refused to illustrate death scenes in the popular Shonen Jump manga.
Threat or no threat, the “Egghead” arc has been highly anticipated by the One Piece fan community and many will surely tune in on January 13 to watch the latest episodes on the streaming platform as soon as they come out. Netflix also recently released the hugely popular “Marineford” season, meaning fans can now watch the entire anime series there as well as on Crunchyroll (though the latter streaming platform premiered the first episode preview of the new “Egghead” on January 7).
All previous seasons of the One Piece anime are available to watch on Netflix, Crunchyroll, Hulu, and Prime Video. Viz Media handles the English distribution of the ongoing manga.
