Ever since One Piece hit the big 1,000 in terms of chapter count back in January, it has not let up on the gas pedal in the least revealing even more new powers for Luffy, and more action than you can shake a stick at!

One Piece has been running since July 1997 in Weekly Shonen Jump and has become one of the most enduringly popular manga series of all time. In fact, in 2020, the Japanese network Asahi launched a national poll asking over 150,000 residents of Japan what the best manga of all time is… One Piece won the poll handily despite some very strong competition from other, more recent, series including Demon Slayer: Kimetsu no Yaibu. The series has been compiled into 98 volumes and currently holds the world record for most issues of a comic book from the same author ever.

In the series, the main character is Luffy D. Monkey who, after being inspired by his hero the powerful pirate "Red Haired" Shanks, leaves his home in the East Blue Sea to begin a journey to find the fabled treasure and declare himself the King of the Pirates. As you might have guessed, he's yet to actually find that treasure, but author Eiichiro Oda says that the series will end someday.

The gang is dealing with a deadly virus, which Chopper finally finds a solution to, and launches his "good virus" into the room as a gas that heals everyone who breathes it in. Those subordinates who were originally told that they were expendable have now turned on their master. In another part of the story, Momonosuke, Yamato, and Shinobu all have a heartfelt talk.

One Piece has been going strong for literally decades now and while some fans believe that, it's never going to end, some of us believe in Oda to do the right thing and give fans the genuine conclusion that they've been craving.
