DID YOU KNOW?
Yes, we all know that One Piece manga is truly one of the longest shonen manga series ever, and we mean of all time. Yet did you know that One Piece will end soon? Well, not too soon, but a few years from now. We hate to be the bearer of sad news but you read that right. The creator of the successful manga Eiichiro Oda has revealed in an exclusive house tour that the adventure anime and fantasy manga will have "just over 100 volumes" in total. Of course, avid readers of the manga did not receive the news well. Since its inception in 1997, the title, as well as the Straw Hat Crew, has long captured the young hearts.
Interestingly, illustrator and writer Eiichiro Oda originally planned a five-year run for the whole title. He even opened up about getting up at 5 am, grind all day, and pulling off an all-nighter till 2am. Imagine the 3-hr sleep he used to get just to continue the anime series. Not to mention that he did not take any day off or vacation! Much as we want to tell you some lesser-known facts about the title, we know that a true One Piece fan will always be one step ahead of us. Die-hard ones will even watch One Piece online for hours and hours! But just in case you are just starting to catch up on the series, here's a small treat for you all.
