On this episode of The One Piece Podcast, we have Stephen, Ed, and Zach on to talk about Volume 68 and a Manga Recap for Chapter 686. Then we have some Anime Recap for Episode 572, News with Ed, and Piece Together!
On this episode we have a special interview with Brian Ige, Vice President of Animation at VIZ Media. We talk about Neon Alley, VIZ’s new start-up console-based anime network. We discuss One Piece’s ratings and popularity on the network, as well as some general questions about the rewards and challenges of the channel.
Big thanks to Stephen for sifting through Volume 68 for our mega-sized recap, and for sticking with us for the Manga Recap. Next week, Steve brings us a Youmacon interview with Sonny Strait, voice of Usopp in FUNimation’s One Piece.
