Bandai Namco Entertainment, Shueisha, and Toei Animation have confirmed that that they will once again hold “One Piece Day,” a two day event commemorating the anniversary of the debut of Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece manga. The event will take place at the Tokyo Big Sight convention center on July 21 and 22, 2023, with a live stream on YouTube worldwide.

The event will feature a “cheering” screening of the One Piece Film Red anime film on the first day, when shouting and cheering will be allowed. The second day will have a stage event featuring cast members, and announcements on One Piece merchandise, as well as other activities.

Since 2017, the Japan Anniversary Association has acknowledged July 22 as “One Piece Day,” commemorating the anniversary of the manga’s debut (although the manga actually launched on July 19, 1997, it was advertised as launching on July 22). “One Piece Day” was held last year on July 22-23, 2022, with an accompanying YouTube livestream.
