The mugiwara will be back next April 17
In mid-March 2022, it was announced that TOEI Animation, the animation studio in charge of anime such as One Piece, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Digimon Ghost Game, Dragon Ball Super, among many others, he had been the victim of a massive hack that had endangered his integrity that made him stop broadcasting his series and movies. In fact, the hack also forced Toei to shut down its online store and take its internal networks offline for several days while it investigated who was behind the incident.
Some of the biggest news in this regard had been that the Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero movie had been postponed indefinitely. However, some anime series like One Piece or Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai will have better luck and in fact thanks to Anime News Networkwe finally have the official list of the TOEI Animation transmission schedule:
- Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai will continue with its 73rd episode on April 16. It will still air a repeat of episode 72 this Saturday, April 9.
- Delicious Party Precure will continue with its sixth episode on April 17. It will still air a repeat of the fifth episode this Sunday, April 10.
- Digimon Ghost Game will continue with its 22nd episode on April 17. It will still air a repeat of episode 13 this Sunday, April 10.
- one piece will also continue with its 1014th episode on April 17. It will still broadcast a recap episode of “Wano Country Best Selection” this Sunday, April 10.
The four animes mentioned above had been broadcasting repeated or recapitulated episodes since the attack on the Toei Animation facilities, a practice that we in Spain and Mexico know very well. Fortunately, they will soon be restored to their weekly schedule.

In this way the hack to Toei Animation affected One Piece and other series
Since Toei Animation announced on March 11 that on March 6, it had been the victim of this cyber attack, it resulted in the shutdown of part of the company’s systems. The company specializing in anime is currently investigating the matter, there are still no culprits to attack. The attack affected the broadcast schedules of the anime One Piece, Dragon Quest: The Adventure of Dai, Delicious Party Precure, and Digimon Ghost Game, as well as the anime film Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero.leading to delays, hiatus and even indefinite pauses.
For example, TV Asahi was originally scheduled to broadcast episode 6 of Delicious Party Precure on March 13, but due to the attack, the channel aired episode 4 of the show. Similarly TV Asahi aired Hugtto! Precure Futari wa Precure All Stars Memories in three parts on March 20, March 27, and April 3 instead of airing new episodes of the anime as planned.
Similarly, Fuji TV aired a rerun of One Piece’s “Special Episode: Barto’s Secret Room” recap special on March 20, and the anime aired more reruns or recap episodes of “Wano Country Best Selection” after. of that. This same station also re-aired the first episode of Digimon Ghost Game on March 20, and since then the channel has been airing more repeat episodes of “Digimon Ghost Game Selection”. For its part, TV Tokyo did not air new episodes of the Dragon Quest: Adventure of Dai anime on March 12, 19, March 26, and April 2 due to the Toei Animation hack.

Something that may disappoint fans of Akira Toriyama’s work is that Dragon Ball Super: Super Hero, the second anime film in the Dragon Ball Super franchise, has been delayed indefinitely from its original premiere on April 22 in Japan.. Unlike other anime productions such as One Piece or Digimon Ghost Game, this one has not received a new release date or window for its premiere. In the following months, Toei Animation may give good news about it.
