The One Piece anime continues this weekend, kicking off a busy month in August. For the month of August, we will see five episodes in a month for the anime, so at the end of the month; We will have a lot of action that we have received.
It’s rare for the One Piece anime to take breaks, and even the Olympics didn’t affect the premiere of new episodes. While other anime like Boruto went on hiatus last week due to conflict between the premiere schedule and the Olympics, the One Piece anime was unaffected and continued with the premiere of a new episode.
So we’re also looking forward to a busy schedule for August, with One Piece episode 985 due out in a few hours. That’s when we’ll see the chaos begin on set, as Luffy and Zoro are finally fed up with the Gifters wasting food and badmouthing those left behind in Okobore Town. The preview for the next episode hinted at Apoo’s arrival on set, so it looks like things will finally speed up.
The anime has just started the Onigashima raid in the subsequent episodes, so it will be a while before we see the showdown with the Beast Pirate elites. For now, Big Mom would also be present and prepare to meet Kaïdou and his subordinates.
Meanwhile, Kaïdou calls Tobiroppo because it seems like he has important things to discuss with him. While all of this is going on, the samurai and Law’s group quietly sneak out of the castle while Luffy and Zoro wreak havoc on the living floor, making it a huge distraction on the samurai’s side.
One Piece Episode Calendar for August 2021
We will have five August episodes for the corresponding five Sundays of the month starting this weekend. The One Piece anime episode schedule for August currently looks like this:
One Piece episode 985 on August 01, 2021
One Piece Episode 986 August 8, 2021
One Piece episode 987 on August 15, 2021
Episode 988 of August 22, 2021 (One Piece)
Episode 989 of August 29, 2021.
The next few episodes will cover the end of One Piece Chapter 980. Lately, the anime has been progressing at a rate of chapter and a half per episode. The previous episode took us to the end of One Piece chapter 979, so by August, with five episodes already, they should get us through at least seven chapters.
The next episode, One Piece, Episode 986, will take us through Chapter 980 and part of Chapter 981, covering the chaos that started when Luffy blew up his cover. Zoro tries to warn him, but after realizing why Luffy is furious, he joins in and tries to punish donors who waste food.
This event caught the attention of both Kid and Killer, and with their now torn blanket, Queen noticed them, and it looks like that’s where the fights will start. The next few episodes will be packed with a lot of action as we get to see what the Strawhats are capable of on the field.
The first Beast Pirate members to be involved were headliner Apoo, and later, when Queen noticed that several of the Worst Generation Pirates were on set, they encouraged other gifted ones to attack them. From there, it became clear that something was up and Queen offered a reward to whoever took them down.
He spoke of a plan he had that included the elimination of a member of the Flying Six. The Who’s Who has talked about the same thing too, so it should be interesting to finally see how all the action in the manga unfolds. This will be for the first few episodes in August, so by the time the anime reaches the end of the month, a lot more action will have developed.
For streaming, the One Piece anime is currently streaming online on Crunchyroll, Funimation, Hulu, and animelab. If you are looking for ways to watch the latest episodes online for free, you can get the latest episodes online on Crunchyroll with a free account.
