One Piece Manga Makes History With Guinness World Record

We all thought that if One Piece were to set a World Record, it would be for the most number of episodes or chapters. However, it’s Oda Sensei’s story, and it would be a shame for it to do something that the fans expected.

The story, the popularity, and the cult-like following are just a few reasons why One Piece is the finest manga and anime out there.

One Piece will go down in history and has proved it again by setting a Guinness World Record for the most copies published for a comic by a single author.

[Special News]

“ONE PIECE” has surpassed 500 million copies worldwide!

And updated the Guinness World Record as “the most published comic series by a single author”! I received an official certificate.

Thanks to all of you. I look forward to working with you!

The manga broke the record with 500 million copies published worldwide after releasing its 103rd compiled volume. With 416 million copies in Japan and 100 million in over 60 countries, One Piece is a world record holder once again.

Yes, again, because the manga broke its own record set in 2015 when it published 320 million copies worldwide. All of this happened because Oda simply refused to make any fan theories canon and kept giving us storylines that we could never have anticipated.

Oda gets all the credit for creating One Piece and making it one of THE best shonen manga ever. Not everyone has the power to keep fans engaged for 1000+ chapters, and I think we underestimate how well-written the story is.

The franchise already has a big movie coming out, and the manga has recently completed 25 years of its debut in July 1997. It has been a big year for One Piece, and I can say this for a fact that the fun has just begun.

About One Piece

One Piece is a Japanese manga series written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda. It has been serialized in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump magazine since July 22, 1997.

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.
