One Piece Hypes Egghead Arc With New Episode Titles

One Piece will be kicking off a new era of the anime in 2024, and now fans have gotten another idea of what to expect from the Egghead Arc with some new episode titles that have surfaced online! One Piece wrapped up the events of the Wano Country arc this year and the final episodes aired in December put the final caps on all of the events that have been taking place while Luffy and the Straw Hats were on the isolated country of Wano. But as the anime returns in January, it’s time to officially move into the Final Saga of Eiichiro Oda’s original manga.

One Piece: Egghead Arc will officially kick off its run in the anime on January 7th, and the anime has revealed what’s coming in Episode 1089 with a special promo teasing the start of the arc. As for what’s next, @ScotchInformer on X has spotted the titles for the next two episodes with Episode 1090 being reportedly titled “New Island! Future Island Egghead” coming on January 14th and Episode 1091 reportedly titled “Full of Future! Adventure in the Land of Science” coming on January 21st. These titles have yet to be confirmed as of the time of this writing, however.
