2 brand new scans from Jump confirm canon time-skip episodes of One Piece! This is the New World arc, which takes place 2 years in the future from the end of the exciting events at Marineford! As you can see in the scans, which are thumbnail format, Luffy and crew’s new looks are shown off. The third image, which is shown in a bigger larger format, is a poster promoting the New World arc. One Piece: The New World arc is set to air in anime form on October 2nd, around 45 chapters behind the manga and a year after mangaka Eiichiro Oda first introduced it.
PS: The anime is still called One Piece. The arc is called New World. As far as we know, FUNimation will simulcast Saturday, October 1 at 10:00 PM on http://www.onepieceofficial.com
