One Piece Teases Massive Buster Call With Social Media Campaign

One Piece is currently experiencing one of the most popular, fast paced moments in the franchise's history with the Wano Arc taking place in both the anime and the manga as well as the fourteenth film of the Pirate franchise, Stampede, releasing into North American theaters later next month. Not satisfied with all of this, it seems that the franchise is looking to drop some even more news beginning on October 4th! Fans have managed to find hints that big changes are coming thanks in part to a Twitter Video as well as a name change for the Eiichiro Staff on the social network!

Both Reddit and Twitter Users discovered that it seems as if Eiichiro Oda and his crew that put together One Piece are hinting at something big dropping early next month, with social media pointing at the tagline of "Buster Call", one of the strongest attacks in the history of the franchise:

The "Buster Call" for those who aren't familiar is the military's most powerful attack in the history of One Piece. It involves several of the marines' ships attacking a target all at once, with the expressed goal of destroying everything in its path, whether that be an entire criminal enterprise or perhaps even an entire island if the need arises!

Luffy and his Straw Hat Pirates have been the only pirates on record to have managed to survive such an assault, with the only two islands that were targeted by such an assault being destroyed in its wake. Both Enies Lobby and Ohara were completely decimated under the military's might and you know that if Oda and his teammates are hinting at another one of these, then something serious is definitely about to take place.

Do you think another Buster Call will be employed for Wano Country? Could you see it happening now that the warlords are no longer in place? Feel free to let us know in the comments or hit me up directly on Twitter @EVComedy to talk all things comics, anime, and the Straw Hat Pirates!


Eiichiro Oda's One Piece first began serialization in Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump in 1997. It has since been collected into over 80 volumes, and has been a critical and commercial success worldwide with many of the volumes breaking printing records in Japan. The manga has even set a Guinness World Record for the most copies published for the same comic book by a single author, and is the best-selling manga series worldwide with over 430 million copies sold. The series still ranked number one in manga sales in 2018, which surprised fans of major new entries.
