One Piece will be celebrating the 20th anniversary with a special episode and the usual timeline of Wano Arc Act 1 will be skipped for one week. The special episode will be called One Piece: Romance Dawn and it will be somewhat based on the video game of the same name.

It will be based on much a different version of the One Piece story as even all the characters including Luffy looks entirely different. It is based on Oda’s early work and what shaped to become the anime show called One Piece much later. Here is the trailer, release date and information on original timeline One Piece Episode 908 returning with the Wano arc.
One Piece Special Episode: Romance Dawn
The anime special called One Piece: Romance Dawn was also released earlier in 2013 and now the second iteration is coming out. The second version of the prototype is more refined and based on the trailer the fans can easily recognize most of the One Piece characters.
Luffy’s blue-haired partner is named Ann, which shares a lot of similarities with Nami but still a bit different. There are many characters which never made it to the final cut of the current One Piece anime and fans will be delighted to have the alternate universe sort of thing.
One Piece Episode 908 Release Date
One Piece: Romance Dawn will be released as part of Episode 907 and the original series will be resumed from next week. One Piece Episode 908 which will continue the Wano arc will be released on October 28, 2019. It will be the one where the original timeline will take over and anything before that won’t be considered as canon.

Most of the non-Japanese fans of One Piece anime has been confused by all the new trailer. There is no need to worry, you can watch the One Piece: Romance Dawn special as a separate fun movie and continue watching the anime after the next week of its premiere.
