'One Piece' Ushers in Its 1,000th Chapter

One Piece is ushering in its 1,000th chapter, a new milestone for Japan’s longest-running manga and anime series after 23 years. The new chapter happens to coincide with the end of 2020, turning a new page for the year and the show.

The series’ creator Eiichiro Oda issued a public statement thanking readers for their continued support throughout the years. To celebrate the milestone, One Piece will be releasing 100 volumes of a story that’s centered around “the man with the red hair,” most likely Shanks, and around the events that take place just before the Dressrosa Arc. Eiichiro Oda also wrote a letter of 1,000 words as a nod to the milestone, while describing some spoilers for the upcoming episode since he believes those “eager” can’t bear to wait. The episode will be the climax of the Wano Country Chapter, where Luffy, Zoro, Trafalgar D. Water Law, Eustass Kid and Killer, face off against the Kaido and Big Mom. It’s a big turning point for the plot as Luffy is returning from his last defeat against Kaido while declaring war.
