The Straw Hat Pirates Take Over U.K.


The Straw Hat Pirates Take Over U.K.

Toei Animation and Manga Entertainment have entered into a partnership in order to bring the popular anime series One Piece to fans in the U.K. Eiichiro Oda’s hit manga/anime franchise will be making its way to the UK as a packaged DVD box set, according to an announcement made by Toei Animation Europe managing director Ryuji Kochi and Manga Entertainment head of marketing and acquisition Jerome Mazandarani. The two companies are also partners in bringing Dragonbal Z to the UK.

“We are excited to see the release of One Piece to fans in the UK and are delighted to continue our partnership with Manga Entertainment,” said Kochi. “One Piece’s embrace outside of Japan is a testament to our talented team of writers and animators who brought this vibrant series to life through years of dedication.”

One Piece follows the adventures of a naive, well-meaning, and ambitious pirate named Monkey D. Luffy, and his crew of equally ambitious pirates, the Straw Hats. Luffy is on a quest to find the legendary “One Piece” treasure hidden by the former pirate king Gol D. Roger, and become the next pirate king.
