The newest episode of One Piece that will centre on a specific character will be entitled Episode of Merry: Mou Hitori no Nakama no Monogatari. The main story will revolve around the beloved first ship of the Mugiwara pirates – the Going Merry and there will also be some entirely new graphics.
The title gets translated as Another friend’s story and will air on 24th August 2013 at 9p.m. local time. As with the previous character-centred special episodes, this one will retell the original canon story but with new animation and probably some new scenes. The plot will start a the famous fist fight between Usopp and Luffy at Usopp’s home town and will also pass through the story of Robin’s disappearance and the discovery of many nakama for both Luffy and the Going Merry. Everything will finish with the tragic, but beautifully depicted end of the ship as the company will need to leave it to continue their search for One Piece, courage and knowledge among other things.
