By the way, TruePirateKing, you said before that you hope the next will be Luffy meeting Chopper recap. That was a preview for the 9th movie. Chopperman is an old One Piece short, it's going to be humorous and have nothing to do with the plot though. After that episode the next will be the first episode of Thriller Bark, unfortunately that'll be on January the 7th because there is no One Piece or any anime for that matter Christmas week.
thank you for clearing that up, i wasnt so sure of the next episode. i find it kind of wierd that they wouldnt aire an episode over christmas week. the last time i went to china was for christmas last year, and no one there has any idea what they are celebrating, its just a huge marketing tool over there. its all used for places to make more money
