One Piece is gearing up for one hell of a year. This month will mark one of the franchise's biggest releases to date. Netflix will debut its live-action adaptation by the end of August, and the One Piece manga is living large with its final act. Of course, the One Piece anime has more on its plate than ever. The subbed anime is nearing its reveal of Gear 5, and One Piece's dub premiered its 1000th episode last month. And at last, the episode has now made its way to streaming!

Yes, that is right! One Piece episode 1000 is now available to watch online. You can watch the anime milestone for free on Crunchyroll's official YouTube channel. It will be streaming free for fans until August 14th. After that, Crunchyroll will move episode 1000 and 10 other episodes to its subscriber-only catalog.

As you can imagine, One Piece fans are eager to see how One Piece fares as it dub carries forward. After all, One Piece had its dub on hiatus for some years, but the anime has been working hard to catch up with Luffy's adventures. Episode 1000 puts the dub firmly into the thick of Wano's climax. As the One Piece dub speeds through its backlog, the show is becoming more accessible than ever, so you can catch the dub now on Crunchyroll and Funimation.

Years later, still vowing to become the king of the pirates, Luffy sets out on his adventure...one guy alone in a rowboat, in search of the legendary "One Piece," said to be the greatest treasure in the world..."
