The story arc of Wano Country has been one of the most action packed, nail biting sagas in the history of One Piece, and an upcoming interview from creator Eiichiro Oda is promising some new tid bits when it comes to the latest adventure of Monkey D. Luffy and the Straw Hat Pirates. Within the isolated nation, ruled by the corrupt Shogun Orochi and the leader of the Beast Pirates in Kaido, the manga and anime are currently knee deep in the adventure that has numerous swashbucklers and warriors alike attempting to fulfill the dreams of Kazuki Oden and open the borders for Wano!
Eiichiro Oda, in the upcoming interview for television, has the creator hinting at the fact that he has been waiting to dive into the Wano Country Arc since the beginning of the anime series which has easily become one of the biggest within the Shonen genre. As Monkey and his pals have been given new makeovers to help blend into the samurai aesthetic of the isolated country, the Straw Hat Pirates have finally been able to reunite following a time skip that saw them all training for two years to grow far stronger than they once were. Luffy and company will need all the strength they can muster to defeat the combined forces of Wano!
