On Sept 3, One Piece volume 100 was released. This is a huge milestone for One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda. To commemorate the release of 100th volume of One Piece manga, Oda wrote a message to One Piece Fans.
Eiichiro Oda said:
“Guys, 100 volumes, 100 One Piece manga volumes are lined up on a shelf.
I feel bad for you. If you have them all, they must be taking a lot of space, but this is my whole life work.
A full-fledged grown adult has been drawing ever page, desperately, for 24 years!
With that said, the size of the work is left to all the readers image, what do you think? It’s big, Its small? This is the world you and I fantasize about!
The story is in its final phase. With all my might, I will guide you through the world until the day we reach the end.
100 volumes of the manga are a gateway to a world where pirates exist. I would like you to leave them in your room.
Their adventure will heat up even more. I want you to celebrate this 100 volume party!”
