Luffy has some extra time on his hands to take on the new receptionist job, as the One piece The anime is currently on hiatus. The next new episode of the series was delayed indefinitely following a hacking incident at the Toei Animation studio on March 6; an unauthorized third party accessed the company’s online infrastructure, leading to the shutdown of the studio’s private networks and substantial production delays on several of its most popular properties. In addition to shows like One piece and Digimon: Ghost Gamethe hack has also delayed the release of Dragon Ball Super: Superherowhich was originally planned to open in Japan this April, with a North American release to follow this summer.

The Toei Animation hack does not seem to have affected the production of One Piece Film: Red, the last animated film in the franchise. The producers of the series recently unveiled a first look at the new extra pirate costumes that the Straw Hat team will wear during the new movie, which is scheduled to open on August 6 in Japan. In the movie, Luffy and his friends travel to a new island to participate in a music festival.
