One Piece has one of the most diverse, if not straight-up bizarre, cast of characters to ever exist in a manga!
From perverted undead skeleton musicians, shape-shifting reindeers to Cyborgs, all of them are so interesting that you could have entire novels written about them, and that is precisely what happened in December 2019 when One Piece announced a new spin-off.
With fans wanting more in-depth character stories but with no place in the manga, we got the One Piece novel, Heroines!
The One Piece official website recently announced that JUMPj BOOKS would release the One Piece novel: Heroines on June 4, 2021. The novel will compile the first four chapters of the serialized novel into one book with newly written content and illustrations.
A collection of short stories filled with the charms of heroines not seen in the main story!
“ONE PIECE novel HEROINES” will be released on June 4th (Friday)!

The final chapter wraps up with a short tale of Perona, Zoro, and Mihawk.
Additionally, One Piece also has a spin-off novel dedicated to Ace dubbed One Piece Novel “A”.

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.
