If you ask any otaku about their favorite mangas, I’m sure that One Piece and Demon Slayer will be on their list. While One Piece has a legacy of 1000+ chapters, Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba ended with 205 chapters.
However, both these series have left a deep impact on the world. I don’t think any elaboration is needed on how the film, Mugen Train, took the world by storm. One Piece’s fame is also widespread.
Kohei Onishi, the editor-in-charge of Weekly Shonen Jump manga, opened up in the recent “Sono Neta, Neta no Shite li desuka” interview and talked about upcoming plans regarding One Piece and Demon Slayer’s mangakas.
According to Onishi, One Piece’s manga will continue for another four to five years. This means that fans can still enjoy 20 to 30 more volumes of Luffy and his adventures before the manga comes to an end.
Previously, Toei Animation’s producer, Shinji Shimizu, had stated that the end of One Piece will be more surprising and influential than the death of fire-fist Ace. In his interview, he expressed his belief that the ending of the series will be very touching.
Since the anime will continue even after the manga’s end, fans don’t have to worry about it for quite some time.
Onishi has also stated that Kyoharu Gotoge, the creator of Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba, has not made any plans for starting a new manga yet.
The manga ended in May 2020 with chapter 205, but that was just the beginning of its path to fame. Demon Slayer: Mugen Train, the movie, has broken countless records after its release, and the manga has even received the Special Osamu Tezuka Award.
After the enormous attention that Demon Slayer has received, Gotoge’s next series is also expected to gain popularity all over the world.
One Piece has also recently released its 1000th chapter with numerous celebrations by Weekly Shonen Jump. The fates of both the amazing series are worth looking forward to.

The man who had acquired everything in this world, the Pirate King, is Gol D. Roger. The final words he said at the execution tower were “My treasures? If you want it, I’ll let you have it. Look for it; I left all of it at that place.” These words sent many to the seas, chasing their dreams, headed toward the Grand Line, in search of One Piece. Thus began a new age!
Seeking to be the greatest pirate in the world, young Monkey D. Luffy also heads toward the Grand Line in search of One Piece. His diverse crew is joining him along the way, consisting of a swordsman, marksman, navigator, cook, doctor, archaeologist, and cyborg-shipwright, this will be one memorable adventure.
