    On April 3, the official One Piece website released an interview with the One Piece TV anime staff regarding the Whole Cake Island Arc. The TV anime series officially entered the Whole Cake Island Arc on April 9.

    Please tell us anything in particular that you are giving your utmost care and attention within the Whole Cake Island Arc.

    Fukazawa (Director): With the addition of the Big Mom Pirates and Germa 66, we now have new relationships between characters that further complicate the plot. But at the center of it all there’s the fact that “Luffy needs to bring back Sanji.” We’re being very careful so that the audience is always aware of this core component. We tried to bring this out visually in the poster as well, so we have something slightly different this time without the usual fun vibes.

    Yoshiike (Art Director): And Luffy and Sanji are the main focus.

    Very interesting, I'm also impatient to see Ichikawa at work. Next episode definitely seems promising.

    Such a great interview, the way they described all these characters and their highlighting moment makes it sound like they know what they are doing with this arc. Though i don't think i'll ever trust the quality of OP anime for different reasons, i am kinda excited for this..Much more than Zou i'd say. The anime should really up the quality of this arc due to it's musical/colorful nature which is hard to show in the manga..

    Also we have a new animation director. The one who worked on Heart of Gold and Episode of Sabo? Not sure what that means for the anime but we'll see.

    Cautiously optimistic for this arc in the anime. Except that Big Mom musical. I am way too hyped for that episode.

    Did anyone noticed the last statement which said Luffy will directly fight Kaido in Wano? It is officially said.

    No hype about this here? Or it's just an old news that I didn't know, so I'm the only one excited...
    Whatever. Luffy vs. Kaido onward!

    This is a good change up. Hopefully it will make the arc one for the books in the anime.

    Great interview

    With today's episode, WCI is off to a good start that's for sure. Now the matter of pacing is still an issue, and I hope they have ideas for additional scenes, that add to the manga scenes, and not just 10 sec. still images
