One Piece - Egghead Arc

Uniqlo to mark One Piece Day 2024 with t-shirts, contest

Traditionally, One Piece Day is held on July 22nd, the date when the manga was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump back in 1997. This year is the 25th anniversary of the One Piece anime, a milestone so big, its being celebrated the weekend of August 10th and 11th, 2024 at the Makuhari Messe convention centre in Chiba, Japan.

The two-day event will have concerts, exhibitions, merchandise, games and more! Some content will be streamed for free on YouTube, while the concerts are only accessible with tickets purchased through Stagecrowd. Live streaming tickets are priced at ¥6,800 JPY (approximately $57 CAD) for both days, or ¥3,800 JPY (approximately $32 CAD) for a single day, either Saturday or Sunday.

In addition, Straw Hat fans here in Canada won’t have to miss out on the action thanks to Uniqlo. The Canadian branch of the Japanese fast-fashion retailer will hold a contest to gain free access to the Stagecrowd live-stream and snag an event exclusive Dr. Vegapunk t-shirt. The shirt features a design with characters appearing in the Egghead arc (pictured at top) surrounded by a circle of “ONE PIECE DAY’24“, with the One Piece and 25th anniversary logos underneath.

Uniqlo will also have other shirts in adult and kid sizes available for general purchase online and in-store across Canada starting Monday, July 22nd, 2024. Adult sizes (pictured below) are priced at $29.90 CAD while the kids sizes will go for $19.90 CAD.

Written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda, One Piece is among the most popular anime and manga series of all time. Since its debut in 1997, the manga is serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump magazine and available translated into English for North American readers from Viz Media, while the anime is currently simulcast on Crunchyroll in subbed and dubbed formats.
