When did One Piece manga start?

One Piece is a manga series that made its debut in the manga community with the publication of its first chapter, “Romance Dawn: The Dawn of Adventure”, in July 1997, serialized in Shueisha’s shounen manga’s Shounen Weekly Jump. One Piece is a popular ongoing manga and anime series, written and illustrated by Eiichiro Oda.



One Piece gained popularity pretty soon after its first chapter was released and became a fan favorite in no time, changing the course of its community’s history in the process. It dominated the market and negatively affected the sales of other manga series in its wake, earning it a position in The Big Three of the manga community.


One Piece started with the introduction of Gol D. Roger, the King of the Pirates. On his execution stand, Roger revealed the existence of the One Piece, the treasure of unimaginable value he had earned in his journey as a pirate. He stated that the One Piece was out there and was free to be claimed by anybody who is able to reach it. With his final words, Roger revolutionized the One Piece world and marked the beginning of a new era, which became known as the Great Pirate Era.



One Piece takes its fans on a journey, following the adventures of Monkey D. Luffy, a young pirate with a dream to become the strongest pirate in history and the next King of the Pirates. Luffy and his formidable pirate crew, known as the Straw Hat Pirates, sail through the Grand Line and travel through distinct locations and islands where they meet very peculiar and interesting characters, both friends and foes.


As of August 2022, One Piece manga has released 1057+ manga chapters, which are divided into 103 tankobon volumes, with regular new chapter updates, making it one of the longest-running manga series of all time. Despite this huge number of manga chapters, One Piece is still far away from its highly awaited conclusion and fans will get to follow the adventures of their favorite pirate crew for quite some more time.
