New One Piece Film Z Commercial, One Piece 577 Preview

Posted on December 8, 2012

A brand new commercial for One Piece Film Z has been revealed! This is the sixth one we’ve seen so far and features Avril Lavigne performing “How You Remind Me” in the background.

Just as a quick note, the first few seconds of the commercial features One Piece Episode of Luffy: The Hand Island Adventure.

Also, the preview for One Piece 577, “Z’s Ambition Arc: A Big and Desperate Escape Strategy” has been revealed. It airs next week on December 16th in Japan (December 15th in USA on onepieceofficial.com) and as the title indicates, this is a tie-in arc to One Piece Film Z. The last episode of the arc (One Piece 578 “Z’s Ambition Arc: Luffy vs Shuzo!”) airs in two week.

One Piece Film Z is the 12th movie in the One Piece series. It will be released in Japanese theaters on December 15, 2012. The movie will be the first to take place in the New World, pitting the Straw Hat Pirates against their strongest enemy yet – a man named Z. Drawings and commentary by Oda-sensei indicate he is a human with cyborg enhancements and unreal power. One Piece Film Z is being marketed as a movie that will “surpass Strong World” and contain a “heroic battle” between Luffy and Z.
