One Piece Anime to Enter New World Arc on October 2

Toei's TV series to follow arc change that Eiichiro Oda's manga made last October

The October issue of Shueisha's V Jump magazine is confirming on Saturday that Toei Animation's One Piece pirate  anime will enter the New World arc on Sunday, October 2. Eiichiro Oda's original manga had entered the new stage in the storyline last October after Oda took an unprecedented four-week break.

Shueisha compiled the first chapters in the New World arc in the 61st  book volume in February, and it printed 3.8 million copies, a record that One Piece itself broke in the 63rd volume. The 61st volume became the first book to sell over 2 million copies in just three days (since Oricon began reporting its book ranking charts in 2008).

Cool, that means I can catch completely up on the anime at the end of September.  I stopped watching at around episode 490 because I prefer watching entire arcs at once.
