One Piece” is not only one of the most successful series of all time, but also one of the longest. Now it has also been announced when the series will reach its thousandth chapter.
With Chapter 1000, “One Piece” reaches a milestone that only the very few mangas can call their own. In the next issue of the Weekly Shounen Jump, which will be released in Japanese trading on January 4, 2021, the announcement is already underway. To celebrate this occasion, the Shounenserie is given a color page in addition to a place on the cover.
Chapter 1000 was originally planned for 2020, but due to Eiichiro Odas’ illness and the resulting two-week break, the project could not be met.
