It’s hard to escape One Piece, the massively popular manga and anime created by Eiichiro Oda. Just like Elvis, One Piece is everywhere. Now it’s going to be harder to escape because Bandai Namco Entertainment, Shueisha Inc., and Toei Animation will once again team up to hold “One Piece Day ’24”. The event promises to be the ultimate gathering for fans around the globe celebrating all things One Piece; manga, anime, games, and everything else.
