Before I turn in I better get this up for those who will be awake when this airs. Yes, it’s yet another tie-in to Z (I think), this time featuring Luffy’s backstory…again!
Title: ”Episode of Luffy: Adventure on Hand Island”
New Characters: Diego, Regis (not the one you’re probably thinking of), and Commodore Birch (two-faced snake hand-puppet wacko)
Animation Director: Hiroshi Shimizu (new, but did do some work on the old 90s OVA)
Time: 7:00AM EST
The story of the Hand Island no Bouken special is set a little before the activities of One Item Movie Z and represents a significant “Hand Island” occurrence during the New Globe story. The tale is set at “Cannon Town” where a mother or father and a kid perform as craftspeople. The occurrence moves around them and a commodore of a sea platform. The unique will also have a flashback landscape to the tale in the first section of the manga, but with new movement.
A new ad began airing in Japan for One Piece Episode of Luffy: Hand Island no Bōken (One Piece Episode of Luffy: The Hand Island Adventure), the television anime special that will premiere on Saturday, December 15 at 9:00 p.m. (The One Piece television anime series normally airs on Sunday mornings.)
