The heroes of the manga anthology Shonen Bounce—Luffy from One Piece, Deku from My Hero Academia, Goku from Dragon Ball Z, Naruto from Naruto, Ichigo from Bleach, and so on., and so on.—aren’t precisely strangers to one another, having appeared in numerous video video games and promotions collectively. However unusually, the manga anthology’s two largest stars (that might be Luffy and Goku) have solely met in animated type as soon as, again in 2013, in a particular that by no means made it to America. Nicely, not till subsequent month, no less than.

The crossover is admittedly an episode of One Piece preceded by an episode of Toriko, one other Shonen Bounce manga/anime that was fashionable on the time, and which was additionally a part of it. With out worrying about how the three utterly unconnected collection had been connecting, the particular featured the equally food-obsessed Luffy, Goku, and Toriko taking part in a meals match with the prize being the extraordinarily uncommon meat referred to as Carat-Sizzled Cattle. The principle casts of all three collection additionally appeared, however by the top, the story boiled all the way down to the three leads concurrently preventing an inevitable huge dangerous.

The episodes aired in Japan in 2013, and there they stayed. However Toei Animation, which makes/made all three collection, has introduced that they’ll each lastly be coming to America because the Toriko x One Piece x Dragon Ball Z Tremendous Crossover Particular, aka One Piece episode #590 (it is smart the specials are being lumped collectively within the ongoing One Piece, as Toriko stopped airing again in 2014). Whereas there’s no phrase on in the event that they’ll come to a streaming service, they’ll air on Grownup Swim’s Toonami block on Saturday, March 4—and with an English dub. Having put that a lot work in it, I’d be very stunned it the particular didn’t additionally make it to streaming or residence video ultimately.
