One Piece Episode 930
WATCH ONE PIECE EPISODE 930
Fans of One Piece have been impatiently looking forward to the 930th episode of One Piece. Unfortunately, the episode has been delayed indefinitely due to the Covid-19 outbreak, much to the dismay of fans worldwide.
There has been no release date given so far but a one-week delay is speculated. Toei Animation, the studio behind the anime adaption of One Piece will be following the necessary precautions of social distancing and that has caused a slowdown in production.
One Piece is not the only anime series to suffer from Covid-19 based restrictions, with other shows such as Pokemon and Food Wars facing delays among others as well. All Japanese anime studios have eventually implemented work-from-home practices, to ensure the safety of every employee and artist.
New Update on Twitter
However, not all hope is lost as Sanda, one of the key animators of One Piece Episode 937, has shared one of his sketches for the episode on Twitter. This proves that the production of the anime is still on-going.
One Piece is one of the largest anime and manga franchises to come from Japan, having a diehard fanbase that has been following the series despite its intimidatingly long length. Even though it has been going on for years, One Piece still has one of the highest viewership, ratings, and merchandise sales.
The 930th episode of One Piece is titled “A Lead Performer! Queen the Plague Emerges”, and will pick up right after Episode 929.
From the looks of the preview and the development of the previous episode, this will be very action-packed.

One Piece Episode 930 Preview
We have an official preview for One Piece Episode 930, which shows us that Luffy has picked a fight against the guards of the Udon prison for their injustices towards the inmates, especially the old man with the food tickets.
Meanwhile, a gigantic person with Queen flags seems to be going to Udon and we do not know their identity yet but it is very likely that the ‘Queen’ part of the episode’s title is dedicated to this character and would challenge Luffy’s friends sooner or later.
There is also speculation that the old man Luffy helped is Boss Hyogoro, as they seem very similar. If that is true, then he will be a much more important character to the episodes ahead of us than originally anticipated. All in all, the episode has fans all over the world excited and the upcoming fight and potential revelations will be game-changing for the Wano Arc.
