One Piece: the anime will stop because of the Coronavirus?
According to what is popular in a blog (accessible here), the historical voice of the japanese Monkey D. Luffy, Mayumi Tanaka, stated that the recording sessions of the dubbing of the episodes of One Piece, the animated series inspired by the manga of the same name written and illustrated by the genius of Eiichirō Oda and that airs continuously each week since 1999, it would be frozen because of the health emergency generated by the pandemic COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
The decision to stop the sessions would be taken, as might be expected, in order to preserve the health and safety of the staff at Toei Animation and citizens.
There is still no official confirmation, but apparently the staff of dubbing has suspended the work, therefore, it is plausible that the animated series is a stop in the long run due to lack of material complete and ready to be transmitted.
Usually the episodes yet to be dubbed, they are not strictly “close” to those already ready for transmission, then a possible pause should not come immediately... at least not between this month and the first weeks of may as they have already been revealed, the first confirmed advances (up to episode 932 of may 10).

One Piece has seemingly temporarily ceased recording to protect the voice actors during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Recording is usually a few episodes ahead, but this will likely end up causing a broadcast delay of two time. https://t.co/3CDFI9QZjV
