Blocked by a hack in March, Toei Animation postponed several episodes of ONE PIECE and blocked its schedule for a month. Fixed the issue for goodthe studio was able to bring the long-awaited animated adaptation of Oda's work back to Japanese broadcasters and streaming services around the world.

This first happened with Episode 1014, which served as a preview of one of the most anticipated episodes of all time. Last week, ONE PIECE 1015 actually aired and was greeted with cheers from the anime audience. In view of this, it could not have been otherwise Luffy and Kaido finally face each other, or rather, the whole new generation faces the old one, ready to unhinge it. However, one blow is not enough to crush the Emperors, and for that a serious fight must be started, which will be temporarily interrupted by a special episode this week.

That ONE PIECE 1016 pendant leaves no doubt: after Luffy, Zoro, Law, Kid and Killer will also come into play. All four can be seen clearly as they prepare for the action, with Zoro and Killer being particularly showcased with their special blades. But there is also room for Sanji with the Mugiwara chef who seems to be waking up from a strange nightmare. What will happen to him? ONE PIECE 1016 will be available on Crunchyroll starting Sunday, May 8th, 2022 and it will be titled "A Battle Between Monsters! The Three Stubborn Captains".
