Oda’s One Piece manga in progress debuted in Shueisha’s Weekly Shōnen Jump in 1997, and the series has produced over 1,000 chapters to date. The story follows the quirky adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young pirate captain who dreams of becoming the next Pirate King, as he and his colorful crew sail through the Grand. Line to search for hidden treasures. With an astounding 516 million copies sold worldwide, One Piece is the best-selling manga series of all time. Additionally, Toei Animation’s anime adaptation won the Best In Progress Film category at this year’s Crunchyroll Anime Awards, beating Attack on Titan: The Final Season and Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaiba.
One Piece’s active fandom
Members of the One Piece fandom don’t just create impressive cosplays; They also speculate about the story’s future and lore, creating imaginative and sometimes wild fan theories. For example, one prominent and hotly debated theory asserts that none other than the former Sea King Crocodile is Luffy’s mother. The theory uses evidence such as the mafia boss’s connection to Emporio Ivankov – the leader of the Okama Kingdom whose Devil Fruit allows him to control hormones – and Oda’s artwork showing what Crocodile looks like when young to support his claim.
Fans also help the mangaka keep track of every detail about One Piece’s vast world. According to a reputable Twitter news account about the series, Oda uses fan-made websites to double-check elements of the story such as Luffy’s attacks and abilities.
