With continuous new chapter updates, One Piece manga contains 1057+ manga chapters as of August 2022, which are split into 103 tankobon volumes.

Gol D. Roger, the King of the Pirates, made his debut in the opening scene of One Piece. Roger disclosed the existence of the One Piece, the invaluable treasure he had amassed during his time as a pirate, on the execution stand. He stated that the One Piece was for anyone who could find it and was free to be claimed. With his final words, Roger changed the course of history and ushered in a brand-new era that would later come to be known as the Great Pirate Era.
One Piece takes fans of the series on an adventure as they follow the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a teenage pirate who has the ambition to become the most powerful pirate in history and the next King of the Pirates. Sailing around the Grand Line and visiting many islands, Luffy and his formidable pirate crew, the Straw Hat Pirates, encounter a variety of strange and interesting people along the way.
After the publication of its debut chapter, One Piece quickly rose to fame and became a fan favorite, altering the history of the community in which it was set. It soon became one of The Big Three of the manga community and has dominated the market, leaving a negative impact on the sales of other manga series in its wake.
