One Piece’s Monkey D. Luffy and friends took over the Las Vegas Exosphere for four hours on June 11, 2024, as part of a weekly-long residency starting from June 10, 2024 to June 16, 2024. 

Luffy and the world of One Piece were featured prominently in a 90-second-long presentation video projected on the Exosphere exterior. The Exosphere takeover is part of the anime series’ 25th anniversary since it first broadcasted in Japan on October 20, 1999. 

Toei Animation also streamed a video titled “25 Years of One Piece” on its newly launched English-language YouTube channel, featuring memorable scenes from the anime (which might contain spoilers for each story arc in chronological order). 

The One Piece franchise has been celebrating the anime’s 25th anniversary all throughout 2024. It has featured several collaborations such as an official café in Las Vegas, a worldwide music concert, and a bobblehead collaboration with the Boston Red Sox
