One Piece TV anime has been getting consistently better with the delivery of the episodes lately, and it looks like we’re going to get even better episodes once we get to Wano. For now, the anime is in the Reverie arc and if you’re watching that, you probably know how bad it is.
Well, the reason why the Reverie arc is so bad in the anime is because of the pacing. The anime is catching up to the manga and there needs to be a consistent gap between the two. To maintain that, and to make sure that Wano Country arc is better than everything else that we’ve seen so far, these measures are being taken. Unfortunately, we have to sacrifice Reverie for Wano, but that’s something that I think we all should be willing to do.
Behind the scenes, work is being done to make Wano the greatest One Piece arc to date. We’ve already seen so many developments in the One Piece anime lately, and I think Whole Cake Island proved that. In my opinion, Whole Cake Island was handled better in the anime than it was in the manga. Most of that was thanks to the new series Director Toshinori and the Chief Animation Director Keiichi Ichikawa.
For Wano, we have a big change on the way. The Series Director Toshinori Fukuzawa is being replaced by the famed Tatsuya Nagamine.
Fukuzawa is going to be directing episodes now, in my opinion. This is a great change because Nagamine is so great with filters and playing with colors and I think that Wano truly needs that. Along with that, his sense of direction is very interesting, as is evident from his work on One Piece: Film Z and Dragon Ball Super: Broly.
Nagamine will take over once the anime enters the Wano Country arc. This isn’t the only major change in the One Piece anime that we’ll see. There are things going on behind the scenes that will definitely make Wano the best-adapted arc in One Piece history. We hope it lives up to the expectations.
