Sorry to bear the sad news, but One Piece Episode 1014 has been delayed due to some third-party breach in Toei Animation internal servers, the anime has been put on an indefinite hiatus.
On the One Piece official website, the future of the anime broadcast was discussed and it was announced that all the future episodes have been put on a hold, with no future release date in sight.
This has come as a piece of shocking news for fans since everyone was eagerly waiting for Roofpiece, but now we will have to wait for the fight between Kaido and Luffy.
Toei Animation and all the related franchises will announce the future One Piece Ep 1014 release date on their official website and social media around the end of March.
Many websites are publishing that the One Piece anime has been put on an indefinite hiatus, but we expect Toei Animation to start airing the episodes soon.
We recommend reading One Piece Chapter 1043, while you wait for the anime to return.
One Piece Episode 1014 Release Date
Even before the recent hack on Toei Animation servers, Ep 1014 was supposed to be on a break this week due to special programming.
One Piece Episode 1014 is titled “Marco’s tears! The bond of Whitebeard pirates!” and is expected to air on April 10, 2022, according to Wikipedia.
Even though an indefinite hiatus was announced, there’s a high chance that Ep 1014 might air and then the future episodes will be on hiatus.
The episode will first air in Japan around 6:00 AM JST and will be available to watch on the official anime streaming websites. The English sub episode will air a few hours after the official Japan release and we share the time of release down below.

Toei Animation Hack: Indefinite Hiatus
On March 11, 2022, Toei Animation announced on their website that there has been a breach in their securities. On March 6, the Toei network was illegally accessed by a third party, and thus to minimize the damage, a part of their internal system has been suspended.
Not only One Piece Episode 1014, but animations of other series like Dragon Quest, and Digimon ghost game episode 22 have also been delayed with no future release date in sight.
The hack seems serious, and we are waiting for more updates from the Toei Animation team. There are high chances that the anime might be put on hold for 1-2 months.
The Toei team is working behind the scenes to fix all the breaches and strengthen the security around the network so the same doesn’t happen in the future.
According to some unofficial sources online, One Piece Episode 1014 will air on March 20th, 2022 and the break will start from One Piece Episode 1015.
We will update the article if any latest news regarding the anime is announced online. So stay tuned!
