What to expect (spoilers)

You can see some of my work in the Next-episode-preview for One Piece 1017.1017 will be the most I have EVER contributed to a single episode of anime. I animated & clean up 2 whole minutes & storyboarded the first 1/4 of the episode making it my storyboarding debut on TV anime!

One Piece episode 1017 will continue where the previous episode left off, which teased Luffy, Kid, and Law preparing to attack Kaido and Big Mom. The upcoming installment will see their joint offensive begin, with each of them using their most powerful techniques to combat these incredibly powerful foes.

Episode 1016 chose to forego adapting the entirety of chapter 1001 to include a filler scene showing Sanji attempting to escape Black Maria. As a result, it’s likely that the adaptation for episode 1017 will include the rest of chapter 1001, as well as some sort of anime-only scene.

The most likely option is to continue with the Sanji storyline, perhaps by adapting some canon content and displaying it early in the anime. Another option, sticking with anime-only scenes, could be to show another Straw Hat or group of Straw Hats dealing with a situation in the interim.

It’s also worth noting that only four pages of chapter 1001 were unadapted by episode 1016. As a result, episode 1017 will almost certainly include pages from chapter 1002, in an amount which equates to roughly half of the issue.

This will see Zoro and Killer get further involved in the fight alongside their captains, with the two shining through their contributions.

In summation

One Piece episode 1017 is set to be an incredibly exciting and engaging episode, continuing the highly-anticipated adaptation of Roof Piece. While pacing problems have unfortunately reared their heads once again, this is to be expected of a weekly anime with only a 47-48 chapter gap to the source material.

Additionally, the quality of animation has more than made up for the poor pacing throughout the Wano arc, especially in recent episodes. While it’s still frustrating to see anime-only scenes being included over fully adapted chapters, these decisions are again necessary to maintain the series’ status as a weekly anime.

Be sure to keep up with all One Piece anime, manga, film, and live-action news as 2022 progresses.

Q. Are you happy with Roof Piece’s quality so far?
