One Piece has just reached the 1000th chapter of its manga and celebrations are still going on. Both the series are progressing beautifully and seeing One Piece characters in Dr Stone’s art style is a treat for fans.

The official Twitter account of Shonen Jump has revealed a new illustration by Boichi, the illustrator of the Dr Stone manga.

Senku (Dr Stone) and Ace (One Piece) come together to showcase their awesomeness in this gorgeous illustration.

Chapter 181 of Dr Stone features the illustration after its cover page. The artwork shows Luffy and Akainu peeking out from a time machine device in the background.

The characters have crossed different timelines and history arcs to meet.

Would the fates of Senku and Ace have been different if they actually existed in each other’s worlds?

Chapter 181 of Dr Stone explores some more mysteries behind Medusa, the petrification device. Will Senku eventually have to invent a time machine in order to know why humanity was turned into a procession of stones?

This is not the first time that Boichi has drawn a One Piece character. His connection with Ace goes a long way back as he had illustrated a new spinoff series of One Piece called One Piece Episode A. It focused on Ace, Luffy’s brother.

Boichi has also previously drawn the fight between Zoro and Mihawk in the East Blue Saga with his unique touch to it.

Are more collaboration projects on their way? Will Boichi release another One Piece spinoff? Or will Eichiro Oda surprise us with a Dr Stone reference?
