Eiichiro Oda’s worldwide sensation One Piece adaptation returns after being off air since 2008. Adult Swim’s Toonami will be the one to bring it back this time around, and not from the very beginning like its first run. This will be the second time Toonami picks up the anime as this was the block where the series first premiered. The anime will begin its run on May 18 from episode 207 onwards, and it will air on the 1:00AM time slot. Soul Eater will then follow it at 1:30AM.
The Japanese broadcast is already on episode 591, which means we have plenty of catching up to do. Perhaps this could mean Toonami won’t have a difficult time picking up the translated episodes to date.
