Toei anime studio got hacked, resulting in One Piece anime going on indefinite break!
According to the official website of One Piece, on March 6, a third party illegally accessed the company’s network and damaged some of its internal systems, which has affected future episodes of One Piece, Digimon Ghost Anime, Dragon Quest: The Adventures of Dai, and Delicious Party Precure anime.
The official website for the One Piece anime stated the staff will announce more details about the show’s schedule starting with the episode that will air on March 20 at a later date.
What Really Happened?
As of now, Toei Studio has not provided any further information about the hacking incident. Due to the hacking incident involving the Toei Website internal servers (website), some animation files were deleted, causing the studio to be weeks behind schedule, resulting in the decision to postpone all their anime projects.
The following are the schedules for other Toei Studio anime other than One Piece:
For Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, episode 73 will not air on Saturday as planned, and episode 31 will air instead. The anime’s staff will reveal at a later date what will air on March 19.
The Twitter account for Digimon Ghost Game stated it will announce at a later date what will air on March 20.
