The first arc in the anime’s final saga finally has a start date. Recently, it was revealed that the One Piece anime will begin the Egghead arc in January 2024, meaning fans only need to wait for a bit over a month to see the Straw Hat Crew’s next big adventure.

As the Wano Country arc is the series’ longest arc yet, the anime has been covering this part of the story for nearly five years now. Thus, this new arc is one that many fans can’t wait to see animated.

Spoiler Warning: There are spoilers for the One Piece anime in this article.

Wano Country was an epic arc that featured Luffy’s strongest power-up to date, solidifying himself as one of the strongest pirates in the world of One Piece.

Instead of jumping straight into another action-packed arc, Egghead offers something a bit different. Based on what happened in the arc so far in the manga, it promises to be an exciting story arc for anime fans.

As its name implies, the Egghead arc will see the Straw Hat Crew visit Egghead Island, the home of the world-renowned scientist, Dr. Vegapunk.

Make no mistake, this arc will feature its fair share of exciting action, but the highlight here will be the various big reveals about the series’ world.

Without getting into spoiler territory, this arc will give fans more insight into the history of the world. Not to mention that it will also put the spotlight on other important characters throughout the series.
