One Piece Episode of Sabo Special's Story, Full Title, Visual Unveiled

posted on by Egan Loo
3 brothers' childhood revisited with new footage of how Sabo came to Dressrosa

The story summary, full title, and visual for this summer's new One Piece television special debuted on Tuesday. One Piece Episode of Sabo ~3-Kyōdai no Kizuna Kiseki no Saikai to Uketsugareru Ishi~ (One Piece Episode of Sabo: The Three Brothers' Bond - The Miraculous Reunion and the Inherited Resolve) will revisit the childhood past of the three sworn brothers Luffy, Ace, and Sabo, when they all dreamed of becoming pirates. In addition, it will depict how Sabo originally came into the kingdom of Dressrosa (which was not depicted in Eiichiro Oda's original manga or the television anime), as well as his reunion with Luffy from his point of view.

The special will air on Fuji TV on Saturday, August 22 from 9:00 to 11:10 p.m. (The One Piece television anime series normally airs on Sunday mornings.)

The One Piece "3D2Y" Ace no Shi wo Koete! Luffy Nakama to no Chikai special celebrated the 15th anniversary of the television anime last August, and it ended with a shot of Sabo standing at a place pivotal to the story.

One Piece Episode of Merry: Mō Hitori no Nakama no Monogatari (One Piece Episode of Merry: The Tale of One More Friend) aired on August 24, 2013. Before that, the One Piece Episode of Luffy: Hand Island no Bōken special and One Piece Episode of Nami: Kōkaishi no Namida to Nakama no Kizuna special also aired on Saturday evenings in 2012.
