One Piece's official portal site One Piece.com announced today on July 7 that Fuji TV will air a new TV special One Piece "3D2Y" Ace no Shi wo Koete! Luffy Nakama tono Chikai (Overcoming the death of Ace! Luffy, the oath with his party) in its "Premium Saturday" block at 9:00pm on August 30, to commemorate the anime series' 15th anniversary. Previously three One Piece TV anime specials were aired in the two-hour block: Episode of Nami in August 2012, Episode of Luffy in December 2012, and Episode of Merry in August 2013.
The new TV special tells the two years of Luffy's training with Silvers Rayleigh in Rusukaina Island after the Battle of Marineford and the death of his older brother Ace, which has never been told in the manga or TV anime. It also features a new villain named Burndy World who is known as "The Destroyer of the World" and has the power of the MoaMoa Fruit (its ability is still unknown). Luffy has to protect Boa Hancock
from the new enemy who escaped from the level 6 of Impel Down. He is newly designed by the original
creator of the manga, Eiichiro Oda.
