Toei Animation has announced that One Piece Episode 755 will introduce Duke Dogstorm. The new character will be voiced by Takaya Hashi and will make his debut this Sunday.
Hashi has been known for his voice acting roles in anime such as the action series Fist of the North Star as well as the mecha franchises Fafner and The Vision of Escaflowne. The 63-year-old veteran voice actor has been portraying middle-aged and older characters, which might give you an idea regarding Dogstorm’s voice.
According to Fandom Post, Toei has revealed the episode’s preview, which can only be described as absurdly short. Please note that the preview will be removed once the episode premieres, which is not really saying much since the preview is only 15 seconds long.
So what can we expect from character making his debut in One Piece Episode 755? Duke Dogstorm, or Inuarashi (Dog Storm in Japanese) as he is known to the Japanese version, is a canine mink and one of the two rulers of the Mokomo Dukedom.
Dogstorm was once a member of the infamous Whitebeard Pirates as well as the Roger Pirates. He served under Kozuki Oden before becoming the Ruler of Day ruling the Mokomo Dukedom from 6:00 AM to 6:00 PM.
He is a resident of Zou the third island encountered by the Straw Hats in the New World. Dogstorm is also the strongest fighter on the Island and stands twice as tall as Roronoa Zoro.
Possessing incredible physical strength, durability and endurance, he was able to fight on even terms with Jack. He was able to stop the Beasts Pirate’s enormous trunk only being slightly winded in doing so.
Like all minks he can use Electro. He is also armed with a rapier, which he uses to channel the technique. Catch Duke Dogstorm on Sunday’s One Piece Episode 755.
