On July 21 and 22, Tokyo Big Sight will be the site of One Piece Day’23, the latest in a series of annual events that celebrate the manga’s start on July 22, 1997. 

One Piece Day’23’s first day will have a special evening screening of 2022’s highly popular One Piece Film Red anime movie (Bandai Namco’s press release says that it has made over 31.9 billion yen/~US$234.5 million worldwide) where fans can cheer out loud during the movie. The second day will have more events and attractions, including a stage event featuring cast members and news reveals, a “Special Exhibition,” a One Piece Bounty Rush tournament, and an area for merchandise and exhibits. More details about the Day 2 lineup will be released later.

Fans who hope to attend One Piece Day’23 can apply for a free ticket online. If the number of applicants exceeds capacity (the planned number of attendees is 600 for Day 1 and 7000 for Day 2), a lottery will determine who obtains the tickets. The event will also be livestreamed on YouTube.

More information can be found on the One Piece Day’23 website’s FAQ page.

Melvyn originally wanted to write about video games, and he did so for a few years, starting from his college days. He still writes about video games sometimes, but now focuses on anime-related news content and the occasional review. Some of his free time is spent self-learning Japanese, both out of interest in the language and because English-translated light novels and manga are expensive. Every anime season, Melvyn looks forward to discovering new standout episodes and OP/ED animation sequences, as well as learning about the storyboard artists and directors behind them.
