One Piece creator Eiichiro Eda said that his beloved manga series has at least 4 to 5 more years left in it. He told this to Japanese megaband Arashi, for their show Arashi Tsu Bo. Oda went on to say that the ending has already been drawn out with editors being informed of how the series will end.
The 97th volume of One Piece will be available in stores in Japan on September 16.
One Piece holds the Guinness World Record for the “most copies of the same manga series written and drawn by a single author.” As of April 2020, more than 470 million copies of One Piece were in circulation in 43 countries around the world, making it the “best selling manga series in history.”
