Everyone’s favorite show’s new episode is about to release soon. In One Piece Episode 960, the Wano Country Arc resumes. In this latest episode, viewers will also see Roger’s storyline returning to the present time. One Piece is based on the manga of the same name that is written by Eiichiro Oda and published by Shueisha. The readers widely accepted this Manga, and it’s success made the studio Toei Animation think about turning this into an anime series. The anime is currently written by Shōji Yonemura and directed by Aya Komaki.

The Story of One Piece is based upon a pirate named Gol D. Roger. Roger obtained all the wealth, fame, and power to earn to become Pirate King’s title. But Roger was captured once and was about to be executed. But just before that, he revealed the place where his treasure called One Piece was hidden. He said that the treasure is hidden somewhere at the Grand Line.

On hearing this, everyone set out to search and find the One Piece treasure. Unfortunately, no one was able to find the location of Gol D. Roger’s treasure. Other than that, Grand Line was a too dangerous place. After almost Twenty-two years of Gol D. Roger’s death, a boy named Monkey D. Luffy decided to find the missing treasure and become the next Pirate King.

In the last episode, Orochi visits the island of Onigashima to be part of the Fire Festival. In the meantime, among the nine Red Scabbards, seven of them reach Port Tokage. But they were welcomed by nothing but ruins only. All of them started to get panic, but Inuarashi somehow manages to find an intact boat. He decides to sail towards Onigashima even if he is all alone.

Orochi orders his men to destroy all the bridges, days before the Fire Festival. This move was to prevent the Kozuki alliance members from assembling. On the contrary, the Scabbards select to stay with their invasion plans to fulfill Oden’s wishes. Oden told them that only when Wano’s borders are opened will the world’s tides change.
