One Piece Wiki

The introductions are located on the left end of the detachable covers.

Author's Comments (作者コメント Sakusha komento?) or Author's Notes are short introductions that mangaka traditionally add to the dust jacket of each collected volume of their manga.


The Author's Notes that Eiichiro Oda writes for volumes of One Piece are usually irrelevant to the series itself, instead relaying bizarre daydreams, anecdotes, and/or jokes. Each Note is headed with an original drawing (more rarely, a photograph) that may or may not illustrate the topic at hand.

Similar Author's Notes can also be found on "unofficial" volumes, such as the databooks (where they are provided from the Straw Hat Pirates' in-universe perspective).

As manga is not sold with dust-jackets in the United States, the Viz localization of the volumes places the Author's Notes on the very first page.

Volume 1
Volume 001 Intro Image.png In order to write a "Story of Pirates", I've been gathering lots of sources on pirates and reading them, but none state of a pirate who dreamed of becoming one in their young days. Seems like they were having so much fun that they forgot to mention themselves in history. Gosh, this is why pirates are such a pain.
Volume 2
Volume 002 Intro Image.png Customer

"Oh generous host a customer has come I wonder where shall we have him sit People who have to sit near the exit make me feel uneasy"

Nice, isn't it. This Northern European Pirate Song.

Volume 3
Volume 003 Intro Image.png If I ever get to take a break for a whole entire year, there's something I'd like to do.

Polishing various drawing skills and drawing tool techniques. Then, drawing would surely become a lot more fun. I wonder who said that the earth is a narrow place.

Volume 4
Volume 004 Intro Image.png I have a dream. Aah, how I want to scribble all over a dog's body at least one time before I die.

「Can I draw you some nose hair?」 「Can I turn you into a panda?」

There were many occasions where I dreamed of drawing on my friends' pets, but no one would let me. People tell me 「Get your own dog and draw on it」, but hell, what are you saying, I DON'T WANT TO HAVE SUCH A STRANGE PET DOG.

Volume 5
Volume 005 Intro Image.png [\/]

In volume 4, since it said you wanted to scribble on a dog, if it's fine with my dog('s picture), please feel free to scribble on him to your heart's content! He's called 「Charmy」(Original name Tome).

(from the Shizuoka Area, I love monkeys♡ san)


Thank you very much. With much responsibility, I've turned Tome into one sexy dog. In this world, there are various animals with exotic colors to match their surroundings. For example, it's possible that a dog who grew up in a field of sunflowers may evolute like this in order to protect itself from outer enemies, isn't it. Living things are just so mysterious. U mad? I love monkeys♡ san.

Volume 6
Volume 006 Intro Image.png Does everybody know? When you eat stuff like Spaghetti al Nero di Seppie (Squid ink Spaghetti), your poop turns black. Real black. Then how's this. If you eat rainbow spaghetti I wonder if your poop would become rainbow poop. I wonder. I wonder if nobody gives a damn about this shit.
Volume 7
Volume 007 Intro Image.png You can't see the side of your face with one mirror.

Now I wonder if this is true. Like this... really fast... SWSH!! ... like this... look at the mirror real fast and...! Maybe you could see an afterimage for a second!! SWSH!! SWSH!! CRACK!! ..................!!

Volume 8
Volume 008 Intro Image.png There's this short little story. A long time ago, rabbits—in the distant past—seemed to have been able to fly. The reason why we still count rabbits the same way we count birds in the Japanese language is because of this. Rabbits that freely soared through the ancient, clear, blue skies with those great, big ears---.

...That kind of occult story.

Volume 9
Volume 009 Intro Image.png Ah-. It is currently the year of 1999, month of July. This is the month that our Bro, Nostradamus, predicts that "the world will be ended by the hands of the King of Angolmois". For this reason, when the King of Angolmois' wanted poster came out, the World Government made this decision. His appearance is as shown in this image. His punishment is 「To lock him up until the month of August」. In conclusion, if you spot him please do not attack him with moves such as the Rolling Sobat or the Piledriver. (World Government)

(Translator's Note: On King of Angolmois's forehead of this image is a small "A" in Japanese [あ].)

Volume 10
Volume 010 Intro Image.png It's Volume 10. Already 2 years since the series launched. 2 years huh... 2 years would mean Sazae-san would turn from age 24 to 24... ah, when I think about it, I'm the same age as Sazae-san right now. I somehow feel like I remember a time when I was the same age as Katsuo-kun. Who's next. Ah, Norisuke-kun. Or Taiko-san. Or Tara-san. Hah Tara-san makes me laugh a little. Or maybe Ikura-san. What am I talking about. Well, as usual I am always drawing my manga without even trying to get a proper job.

(Translator's Note: Oda is referencing characters from the old manga series, Sazae-san.)

Volume 11
Volume 011 Intro Image.png Ah- thank you very~~ much for ah- riding this ah- sightseeing bus. Eh- this bus~~ is uh- currently on its way~~ to~~ ONE PIECE's 100th ah- chapter. Ah, right around the right hand side to you~~ where~~ you can~~ see something tall~~ sticking~~ up~~ ah~ that would be~ the middle~~ finger~~, yes. Eh~~ now then we will~~ get into an~~ exciting~~ and lively mood in~~ this~~ sightseeing~~ bus.
Volume 12
Volume 012 Intro Image.png Today, let us talk about the topic of "evolution". Or let's not. Let's just go. "Monkey" became "Human". As shown in the image provided. You'll probably be able to tell by looking at it, but the form starts to straighten, little by little.

Now let's discuss the future form of "man". I personally think we should bring this in the direction of a back-flip. In other words, the human race will slightly float in the future. I'm sure of it.

Volume 13
Volume 013 Intro Image.png There is a sacred Dragon in Enoshima. The being that is closest to God. That is the Dragon. I WONDER IF YOU CAN EAT DRAGONS.

(Translator's Note: Enoshima Enoshima)

Volume 14
Volume 014 Intro Image.png This is out of the blue, but I have seen a ninja before. I'm dead serious. I think it was when I was in 3rd grade or so. This is a story of when I was living in Miyazaki because of my parents' job transfer. A ninja came to the elementary school I went to. Class was suddenly over and an school-wide assembly was held. Getting a request from the principle, the ninja says this.「Today, I have come to show you all ninjutsu.」The ninja screamed「KAAAAAAHHH!!」and chopped a big rock. Our jaws dropped. Then the ninja picked out a few students in the higher grades, made them come up on stage, and said this.「You can go back.」The thing we puzzled kids saw next with our eyes was......!! TO BE CONTINUED.
Volume 15
Volume 015 Intro Image.png A continuation from the previous volume.

"Kaaaaahhh!!" the ninja screamed, and "Baaaam!!" Shockingly, the upperclassmen suddenly became stiff all at once and fell to the ground. It was the world-famous "Jutsu of Binding"!! After that, he did things like stopping people's hearts and showing us pictures from back when he was still in training; there was no end to the levels of our excitement. Then the ninja says this. "To be honest, I can keep on standing upside-down on the ceiling of this gym for 5 hours straight, but since we do not have the time today, I will not do it."

I've seen a ninja. Dead serious.

Volume 16
Volume 016 Intro Image.png 「Teacher!!! Afroda-kun's lunch money disappeared!!!」

「Say what!!? Seriously!!! Afroda!!! No lunch for you today!!!」

(Translator's Note: Afroda's name can also mean "It's an Afro" if read out loud.)

Volume 17
Volume 017 Intro Image.png Japanese restaurants that I usually go to with the staff have lots of families with kids as customers, and it's always lively. For each seat, a television set is attached. When we go there on a Wednesday at 7 o'clock, the kids have their mouths wide open like retards and stare at the television set, stuck like glue. The channel is set on 「ONE PIECE」. I think I should do my best.
Volume 18
Volume 018 Intro Image.png I hear you need stamina to sleep. If you sleep the correct way, even if it's for a short while, it seems like you can wake up nice and fresh. In other words, you should sleep with all your might. That's the idea. So, in order to sleep to the fullest in a short period, I decided to gain some stamina before sleep. I gulp down some strong energy drinks and snuggle into my blanket. Ugh, geez, I'm tellin ya, HOW AM I SUPPOSED TO FUCKING SLEEP LIKE THIS.
Volume 19
Volume 019 Intro Image.png In English, it's「Brown」. Brown is the color of land. If there was brown toilet paper, I think it would be a problem. ....Ya know--. You wouldn't be able to see it, right? ....Ya know--. ....Yeah this discussion is disgusting, isn't it. I really shouldn't be talking about this, should I. Now then! Volume 19 of「ONE PIECE」is going to start!!
Volume 20
Volume 020 Intro Image.png Phrases with rhythm feel good to hear, don't they. Like「Kappa on the river flow」. Or「It's spring after all」. Or maybe「It is well into autumn」. Or「Falling dead on the street」, or 「stiff circular kicks」, or 「taste of rich soy sauce」. Now then, volume 20 starts.
Volume 21
Volume 021 Intro Image.png I saw a unique panda on TV. You know how pandas have black sections? That part was all white. Heh, there are amazing things in this world. On top of that, it lives in places like the North Pole. I don't know what to do with you, panda. (Lol) Now then, volume 21「Ideal Nation」start.
Volume 22
Volume 022 Intro Image.png Did you know?

According to statistics, the "reading comprehension" rate of Japanese youngsters is crazy good on a worldwide level. Isn't this splendid? Hey. Isn't this splendid? Do you know why? Even out of the Japanese, people with the highest reading comprehension scores of all are the people who also read tons manga. Isn't it splendid? This fact. EESN'T DZEES SPLON-DEED? (↑French flavor)

Volume 23
Volume 023 Intro Image.png These days, whatever book I read says that the「mermaids」that the sailors saw back then were probably actually all 「dugongs」. The scientist who said that. You, sit right there. For example, a sailor back then. Let's say his name is "Nishimura-san". He says this.「Me saw e mermaid」. Now that's the pure reason why mermaid legends were created. But you just said it straight out.「Maybe it was a Dugong.」Yes, and with this the whole world took it seriously. Well well, Nishimura-san is now very disappointed. Crying to bed in the otherworld.「BUT I SAW ZE MERMAID.」 Cheer up. Nishimura-san. DUGONGS ARE PRETTY CUTE TOO, YOU KNOW?
Volume 24
Volume 024 Intro Image.png Come to think of it, when I went visited my family recently, my parents stated their thoughts on ONE PIECE for the first time.「That story 'bout the deer was real nice」........DEER?
Volume 25
Volume 025 Intro Image.png There is a reason why Chapter 233 in this volume's cover is black. By doing this, I have memorialized my mangaka buddy named「Shingagin」who recently passed away. According to a certain person, even if a Mangaka dies, the characters that the Mangaka created live on in place of them. I really think we have a great career.
Volume 26
Volume 026 Intro Image.png Brrrrrring......!!! I stop my alarm clock. It's 3 PM. I open the curtains, pour some coffee, and bring my head to my desk. I put my coffee in the same place as always, and open my sketchbook. I sharpen my pencil, slowly lean back on my chair, and ZZZ-------------. GOIN' BACK TO SLEEP IZ DA BEST. YEAHHHHHHHH (Do your work)
Volume 27
Volume 027 Intro Image.png I just happened to think this yesterday, but 「ONE PIECE」 sure is a REAL WEIRD TITLE. (ROFL)
Volume 28
Volume 028 Intro Image.png If you were to compare creating the storyline for manga to a game,「Tetris」would fit most. You put together the images scattered around in your mind like a puzzle to create a single, straight storyline. However, when that doesn't go too smoothly, I literally play the game「Tetris」. The image of the blocks building up one by one goes through my mind, and this is what I think.「TETRIS IS SOOO FUN. WOOOO--」
Volume 29
Volume 029 Intro Image.png I hear that you need to eat hot food when it's still hot, or else it'll taste nasty. The thing is, I feel like the vast majority of us out there have tongues sensitive to heat. Since we call them "cat-tongued" in Japanese, I think there should also be a name for people with non-sensitive tongues.

"Perverted Tongues".

I was jealous, so I gave them an embarrassing name.

Volume 30
Volume 030 Intro Image.png I got a letter like this.「Oda-sensei, you are always irresponsible and weird.」I will make this clear here, right now; even though it's me that always makes the dumb comments, some time ago our neighbors were praising this one kid about how "if you made him do academics, he was clearly a prodigy and if you made him do sports he would show how athletic he was". And do you know who that kid was?? My friend Tanaka-kun. Now then, Volume 30 is starting.
Volume 31
Volume 031 Intro Image.png Everyone!! News!! If you're having an unhealthy food routine and end up in a situation where you are having way too much sugar daily, having lots of salty foods as well to have a healthy balance IS SOMETHING YOU SHOULDN'T THINK OF!!! (EXTORTION!!!)
Volume 32
Volume 032 Intro Image.png I hear that in this world

everything turns out the way you think. Because for instance, in a case where a person thinks that in this world nothing turns out the way he thinks, what he thinks turns out to be real for him, therefore, everything turns out the way you think.

Volume 33
Volume 033 Intro Image.png Boogers are nasty, so I've decided to refer to them as "Honey" from now on.

I decided to ask one of the staff. "In schools, the chairs tend to have honey on the bottom of them, don't they." "Ehhhhh!?", he said. "Ehhhhh!?", I said back. "So what do you do with the honey you've harvested during class?!" "Oh, you flick it at people!!" "You abnormal person!!!"

Volume 34
Volume 034 Intro Image.png I will sing the mystery song I used to sing with my buddies in middle school.

「A pig-- walks out in the street-- (bum bum bum~ x2)
a car is coming from the side-- (bum bum bum~ x2)
The pig-- doesn't wanna die-- so he dodges and walks on-- (bum bum bum~ x2)」

Now, Volume 34 will begin.

Volume 35
Volume 035 Intro Image.png There is something called the "Nanba walk". Like when they say the Japanese people before the Meiji era walked by setting out their left leg and left arm together, and then right leg and right arm together. If this is true, I think the people of ancient Japan were always very nervous. The reason for the tenseness is of course, because of the piano concert that is coming up tomorrow, and for that concert, your secretly beloved Mariko is going to come watch. Takashi has very short fingers, and he is not able to reach the black keys of the piano, so in order to dismiss that weakpoint, he locks himself in the mountains once again, and fights the big bad bear!!! Now!! Volume 35, start!!!
Volume 36
Volume 036 Intro Image.png I became 30 last year. I even married last year. There are days where I become a bit worried if there are any ways for me to live more properly then, as always, doing nothing but drawing cartoons, but I am healthy and well. Volume 36 will begin.
Volume 37
Volume 037 Intro Image.png Humans seem to be strong but are actually weak creatures. There is this fact that if there are only 5 cms of water in a puddle, it is possible for a human to drown in it. In other words, only being able to breath from nose and mouth is not too good. And so let us learn the third way of breathing, everybody. The third way, ASS BREATHING. And so, volume 37 begi*fart*
Volume 38
Volume 038 Intro Image.png When you buy stuff like singles CDs, around the 3rd song or so there's a singing-less song you can find that's written "Instoormentar". Mothers who forget to buy the ingredients of the miso soup they were going too make for the dinner of their families could say this. "Today's miso soup is Instoormentar". During a test, if you can't think of an answer then everyone should write next to the blank space. "It's Instoormentar". I frequently get pointed out by my readers that I forgot to draw something, but that is obviously also "Instoomentar".

(Translator's note: The first Instoormentar (written インストゥルメンタル for all of them)refers to "Instrumental". The second is probably some pun on INSTRUmental and instant. The third has something to do with instruMENTAL but I am not sure how that works out. The last use of Instoormental is probably just random.)

Volume 39
Volume 039 Intro Image.png BIRDS ARE LUCKY HUH? BECAUSE THEY CAN FLY AROUND THE SKY FREELY. According to a certain scientist's calculations, apparently if you train to get your chest to have 2 meters worth muscle, then humans can also fly. Scientists sometimes say the craziest things, don't they. Vamanos! Volume 39 will start!!
Volume 40
Volume 040 Intro Image.png Goats became famous for eating paper.

They deliciously eat anything that's paper, as if to say "Oh, this is totally edible". They eventually had to put up signs at the zoo. "Please do not feed the goats paper." In reality, eating paper that has synthetic fibers in it will actually get you sick. Goat... you... you... What are you, a rising comedian artiste?

(Translator's note: In Japan, young comedian artistes, or "芸人-Geinin", will stereotypically do just about anything with a smile on their faces [usually on variety shows, etc.] in order to get a job or achieve fame.)

Volume 41
Volume 041 Intro Image.png These days even toothbrushes have evolved, and they even say there are these things called vibration brushes that vibrate 30 thousand times in just one minute, so when I carefully checked, it really was vibrating 30 thousand times. Now then, volume 41 is gonna begin--!!
Volume 42
Volume 042 Intro Image.png I think that there is an ancient language and a modern language because language is something hard to pass down. In the Heian period, a certain person's diary apparently said "Young uns' these days don' know howto speak properly". It's funny how only the miserable stuff in history have been accurately passed down, so I think i'll try saying that when I'm old too. VOLUME 42 IS GON' FUCKING START BITCH.
Volume 43
Volume 043 Intro Image.png Timing is important.

George really needs to fart. Right now he is in a classroom and it's very quiet. So he thinks. If he shouts out extremely loud and farts while doing so, it can be covered. Three, two, one, "AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHH!!!" "What?" *whisper whisper!!* *silence.....* *FART!!!*

Now then!! Volume 43 is about to begin!!

Volume 44
Volume 044 Intro Image.png I hear that the worldwide population increases in about 200k people per day.

There are over 5 billion humans in this world. Sometimes I wonder. Today I eat meat and tomorrow I eat meat and the whole world is eating animals every day, yet they don't become extinct. To all animals- THANKS FOR THE MEAL.Really. Volume 44 is starting!!!

(Translator's Note: Red text in image says "Yakiniku")

Volume 45
Volume 045 Intro Image.png The days of war with 10 year old young men. Kids that were 10 when the series started are now 20. The hair in that place must be already going wild by now. Just saying, but by that place, I meant armpits. Armpit hair. It's become real long by now (not the armpit hair; I'm talking about the series) but I still have many scenes I want to draw. Hairless boys and Hairy boys, please bear with me for a bit more.
Volume 46
Volume 046 Intro Image.png I will now announce a mystery song I used to sing with my pals. I want you to sing it to your crying friend. This song.

「Dooon't cry, Dooon't cry cuz I'll give you a potato♪ Ah nevermind cuz those things make you fart♪」

(Translator's note: this rhymes in Japanese. It's also in kansai dialect.)

Volume 47
Volume 047 Intro Image.png 「UFO」stands for「Unidentified Flying Object」. I don't really get it, so I'll just call it a UFO. That's the word. A UFO researcher looks at a mystery object in the sky in a picture and says this.「This is without doubt, a UFO!!」In other words he's saying「There's no mistake it's an unidentified flying object!!」HM?? Volume 47 is starting---!!

(Translator's Note: Text in image says "alien")

Volume 48
Volume 048 Intro Image.png [\/]

Who are you calling invaders, dude. A heavenly punishment to the Mangaka that doesn't trust his fans. Switch on. Click. 10 seconds before Kokoro's Bra drops, *DROP*... Please continue on with the Volume. by Shelltect-kun >゚)##)彡 AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!!! VOLUME 48 IS STARTIAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAGHHH!!!!

Volume 49
Volume 049 Intro Image.png I go outside hangin' a bag from my shoulder sometimes and bring my new song album with me instead by mistake. Yup yup. Common mistake. Volume 49 will start!!
Volume 50
Volume 050 Intro Image.png "Huh......?

you...... could it be that...... you are God?"

"...YES." Okay volume 50 starting---!!

(Translator's Note: In Japanese, the way of saying the english word for "Yes" [イエス; iesu] is pronounced and written the same way as the Japanese way of saying "Jesus" [イエス; iesu]- hence, this could also be taken as a pun.)

Volume 51
Volume 051 Intro Image.png I heard a story where, in order to be able to paddle as much water as possible, a swimmer's hands become webbed. That's evolution, man. Mangakas are also always drawing so I want to evolute in one way or the other. For example... like the tip of my nails becoming shaped like a pen. Or being able to see through passerby women's clothing. Volume 51 is starting-!!
Volume 52
Volume 052 Intro Image.png Vending machines during the winter have these labels that say "wa~rm" on them, so when I go with that flow and say "shoot, deadline's coming clo~se", it feels


In the first chapter, if Luffy had said "I'll become the Pirate Ki~ng!" instead, something would feel slightly off. Just a little. Volume 52!! "I want to sta~rt it".

Volume 53
Volume 053 Intro Image.png That "pose" that a person makes when saying「Excuse me I need to pass through」or on a full train or bus「Excuse me I need to get off」!! Let's name it the "GOD FIST". We can assume that is an old type of martial arts that was passed down from ancient China. The people that are under the "God Fist"'s attack are hypnotized by the "will" that seeps from that hand and crowds end up creating a shining path as if Moses cracked a roaring sea in half.... Volume 53 is starting-!!
Volume 54
Volume 054 Intro Image.png I hear that humans are supposed to be able to live until the age of 140.

Then from there on, it's said that their lives get shorter as they put more stress onto their bodies. Mangakas always have way too much pressure in their lives, so I'll probably only get to live up to about the age of 135 (bummed).

Life is so short. Volume 54!! Starting now----!!

Volume 55
Volume 055 Intro Image.png I heard that when you don't have enough oxygen in your body, your body says "gimme oxygen" and makes you yawn. When you yawn and the person next to you yawns as well, I personally think it's because the earth's oxygen suddenly decreases when you yawn. You know, the Law of Conservation of Mass and all. Thinking back, I yawned that day. ...yes, that day of the dream of all humanity, the space shuttle went to space. Half of that was a lie. Volume 55 is starting-!!
Volume 56
Volume 056 Intro Image.png There's these seedless type of grapes that you can eat including the skin. Nothing can be better. I love those things. Seedless watermelon and seedless Japanese Persimmon make me feel like I'm in heaven too. Going with this flow, if things like shell-less crab and shell-less shrimp came out, I would totally gobble them up whole. Boneless fish is also great. From time to time the bones stab my throat so boneless eel makes me happy too. Still, I wouldn't want this. MANGALESS LIFE. Now then Volume 56!! It's starting---!!!
Volume 57
Volume 057 Intro Image.png I'm the type of guy who doesn't feel right if I'm not reading something; in other words I have an addiction to books. I lied. JUST WANTED TO TRY SAYING IT. Volume 57 is starting---!!
Volume 58
Volume 058 Intro Image.png I'm not about people just deciding things for you without any consent.

Since the very day you were born, you're just automatically categorized as the "Year of the Rabbit?!! "Capricorn the Goat"?!! You've gotta be kidding me!!! I don't wanna be some damn weakling animal like that!!

With that being said, let's change this up.


Scary. Sounds strong. Volume 58 starting now---!!

Volume 59
Volume 059 Intro Image.png You ask why I'm drinking alone?

You know how there's this one song that someone was singing about how if everyone "imagined" of a peaceful world, then the world would gradually become peaceful, right... You wanna drink with me too? After all, today is the day John died.

Ah, John the Dog. THE DOG.

Volume 59 is about to begin---!!!

Volume 60
Volume 060 Intro Image.png "The Standing Death of Benkei".

I believe this death wins first place when it comes to manliest ways of dying that have been told down the Japanese generations.

In the previous volume, the death of the great "Whitebeard" was the epitomy of this saying. Speaking of Benkei, I have this one trait that really mirrors him. Yeah. You see, I heard that, coincidentally, Benkei had this same little quirk, but the truth is that

I also feel like crying when I accidentally bang my shin.

Guess it can't be helped... that men among men end up resembling each other.

Alright, Volume 60 starting--!!

(Translator's note: Text in image says "GYAAAAAAAHHH My nose bled...". For more information on Benkei, go here: Wikipedia:Benkei, or here Benkei: The Warrior Monk Who Died Standing)

Volume 61
Volume 061 Intro Image.png I despise people who try to be cute. For example, people who try to use cute words are secretly manipulating us into letting our guards down, so be very careful.

"One and only → Wun and onwy♡" "Monument → Monyu♡ment" "No breaks the entire year → No breakies the entire yearrrrr♡" "Mugi yu → Mugyuuuuuuuuuu~~♡"

How about we all keep the cuteness appeal to a bare minimum!!!

A respectable chivalry manga, "ONE PIECE"!! The sixty-first volume!! It's about to start, so my greetings go to you!!!

(Translator's note: These can all be considered as puns in the Japanese language.

  • One and only to Wun and onwy (唯一無二 to 唯一むにっ♡, both pronounced yuiitsumuni) literal translation is "One and only to One and squish♡"
  • Monument to Monyu♡ment (モニュメント to もにゅっ♡メント) could also be translated as monument to "squeeze with a guy"
  • No breaks the entire year to No breakies the entire yearrrrr♡ (年中無休 to 年中むきゅ〜っ♡, both pronounced nennjuumukyuu) literal translation is "No breaks the entire year to sqeeze hug all year~♡"
  • Mugi yu to Mugyuuuuuuuuuu~~♡ (麦湯 to むぎゅ〜〜っ♡) literal translation is "Roasted barley tea to Squeeeeeeeeeze~♡"

Text in image says "Boss, please don't try to stop me!!! I... Even if w'both end up taking e'chother out, I'll make sure to thrust this shank into his abdomen with a 'squish♡'..." [Read in a gangster accent])

Volume 62
Volume 062 Intro Image.png Apparently, if you trace the roots of peoples' DNA, our blood all leads to a single woman from a looooong time ago in Africa.

Despite this, theoretically speaking, she was not the earliest human around--- but such a person must exist.

The beginning of humanity. The mother of humanity!

It sounds intense, so I tried drawing a picture in her image.

All of humanity is one big family.

No matter who's in trouble, they're not a complete stranger.

Volume 62 is startiiiing~~!

(Translator's Note: Background text in image says "Great Mother!!!" and in Great Mother's speech bubble, it says "Do your homework!!")

Volume 63
Volume 063 Intro Image.png Back when I was a kid, I raised this Japanese rhinoceros beetle larva, but I fiddled with its horn too much while it was growing and it ended up hardening at a weird, twisted angle.

They say to strike while the iron is hot, but that was a bad thing I did there. Yet, I can't help but imagine- that if I had accidentally attached a bazooka to its shoulders while it was a pupa, it might have grown into a bazooka helmet beetle. If I had equipped it with armor and a katana, it might've grown into a fully armed helmet beetle. Except that's sort of unethical- and after all, it's best to stay the way we're born!! Volume 63 is starting--!!

(Translator's Note: Japanese rhinoceros beetles are called "カブトムシ [lit. Warrior helmet bug]" in Japanese.)

Volume 64
Volume 064 Intro Image.png Snacks from those traditional candy shops have wrappers or bags with these characters, who announce their opinion on how the snack tastes, printed on them.

I kind of like that, and think it'd be fun if they did this for various types of products. For example, on a bag of kimchi, it'd say, "Spicy!!" For pervy DVDs, it'd say "Naughty!!" For cigarettes, "Smoky!!" For drugs, "Risky!!" Volume 64 starting!! Tasty!!

(Translator's Note: Text in image speech bubble says "Tasty!!")

Volume 65
Volume 065 Intro Image.png It goes in the bunker because you think you don't want it to.

In fact, if you aim for the bunker, you'll have a better chance of missing it. My favorite type of iron is... a 5-iron. I feel like these days, my putting skills are going down the drain---... Though I'VE NEVER EVEN PLAYED GOLF BEFORE~~!!! I wanna try it out when I'm all grown up-- Volume 65 is starting~~!! Good up!!

Volume 66
Volume 066 Intro Image.png Ordering a "Chef's Capricious Pasta" is a gamble. 

I'd be crying myself to bed if the chef were "feeling like not making anything today" or "feeling like he wanted to eat his own cooking today". I'd at least want to know how the chef has been doing recently. "The chef's daughter got a 100 on her test. Chef's Capricious Pasta!!" Sounds delicious--!! "The chef's wife has been cheating on him... Chef's... Capricious Pasta..." .......uhhhh--...... Now then! The capricious captain's big adventure!! Volume 66 is starting--!!

(Translator's Note: Text in image says "I wonder what I should mix together today--". "Capricious Man" is printed on his hat.)

Volume 67
Volume 067 Intro Image.png

A "snooze". What the hell is "snooze"? Before I knew it, this weird little word had somehow permeated our society.


The image that comes to mind when I hear the word devoid of context is something like this.(←) Now then, Volume 67 is starting!! Don't snooze on it!!

(Translator's note: Text in image speech bubble says "Try sprinkling some salt onto Volume 67, it'll get salty")

Volume 68
Volume 068 Intro Image.png Does the thought of

"I DON'T EVER WANNA GROW UP!!" ever cross your mind?

When surrounded by adults who can hardly be considered role models, kids will lose their appetite and refuse to grow. If we were to take full advantage of this phenomena, it would become a revolutionary anti-aging treatment. Maybe the more shitty adults there are out there, people who don't want to end up like them will be able to stay young forever. But these days, there are awesome adults regardless of wether they're over 40 or over 70 which is just TOO BAD.

Strive for volume 70!! Volume 68's about to start--!!!

Volume 69
Volume 069 Intro Image.png

Volume 069 Intro Image 2.png

(←)Oh, shit!!

When your toilet paper accidentally rips vertically in half, it begins.


The left side is already two~three laps ahead of the right side and still going.

A man must must never look back to his mistakes!!

It is too late to turn back now!!

Volume 69 starting---!!!

Volume 70
Volume 070 Intro Image.png Cows look fabulous with their horns.

I wish I could just grow horns one day. Since the dawn of time, men have always wanted horns. It's normal to have horns. They look so manly after all. I guess they'd be slightly inconvenient when going to bed? And it'd probably be difficult to do headers in soccer. And when you face your desk, you might keep hitting your desk lamp and groan in annoyance. Oh!!

Cows also groan, don't they!! Volume 70 is starting-horn!!!

Volume 71
Volume 071 Intro Image.png When a product sells really well, they say it's a "hit".

They go "Successful hit!!" "Major hit!!" "Ground-Breaking hiiiit!!!".

And recently, I've been thinking. JUST CALL IT A HOME RUN AT THIS POINT!!!

Volume 71 begins now-kakiin!!

(Translator's Note: "-kakiin" is the Japanese sfx for hitting a home run.)

Volume 72
Volume 072 Intro Image.png Mini dog♡ Mini bird♡ Mini cow♡

Adding "mini" before something makes it so much more adorable, doesn't it.

Mini pig, mini rabbit, mini horse, mini rhombus, mini cat, mini bear, mini pernix, ministry...

Now then, the adorable mini-volume 72 MINI-STARTING NOW!!

Volume 73
Volume 073 Intro Image.png (←)Back when I was a student, I learned that this fellow here is Japan's legendary regent, Prince Shotoku.

However, recently, there's a theory that's been going around that this portrait might have not been Shotoku himself, which is quite problematic for me. In other words, this means that my "Prince Shotoku had a huge appetite and constantly carried a shamoji (rice spoon) around with him" theory would also be proved false. So in the end, WHO IS THIS HUNGRY GUY!!! History is full of dreams and excitement. Volume 73, begin!!

Volume 74
Volume 074 Intro Image.png From time to time, people talk about things that have a mochi-like texture, and I've discovered a food that has a mochi-like texture as well. Mochi.

A mochi-like Volume 74, starting nowwwwwwwwwwwww!!!

(Translator's Note: Text in image says "So mochi-like--, super mochi-like~~")

Volume 75
Volume 075 Intro Image.png These days, people tend to prefer fancy terms when color-coding merchandise, like using "chocolate" over brown or "rose" over red. I like it.

Like "champagne gold" or "mint" or "wine", "ruby", "cherry", "fudge", "caramel", "natto" "rice" "miso soup" "pickled plum" "now then" "the" "snot-colored" "volume 75"


Volume 76
Volume 076 Intro Image.png This famous Japanese saying that can be taken as even sexist. "A wife must always walk three steps behind her husband."

This saying comes from ancient Japanese samurai culture. Let's say we were one of those samurai who constantly carried around those dangerous Japanese swords, not knowing when we'd need to pull them out and fight- if that were the case, would we really make our loved ones walk right next to us? Those "3 steps" are equivalent to the distance we must make to keep our ladies safe!! If you're a man, say this. "Take 3 steps back and follow me!!!" Take 3 steps back from volume 79, and this is "Volume 76"!!

Starting now-de gozaru~~!!!

(Translator's Note: Samurai stereotypically add "-de gozaru" to the end of their sentences in Japanese.)

Volume 77
Volume 077 Intro Image.png You know how if a figure skater or ballerina tried to add a taste of "cyclone" to their typical spins, they'll either end up flying or getting themselves buried? Well, I figured, if you tried adding a taste of "cyclone" to your asshole, your **** would spurt out, spinning like crazy, and you wouldn't even be constipated anymore.



(Translator's note: Text in image says "Gyururururu". This is the sound effect for spinning.)

Volume 78
Volume 078 Intro Image.png The law that states that construction worker uniforms

cannot be this way DOES NOT EXIST!!! All you need is courage!! (and funds) The courageous Volume 78, starting now--!!

Volume 79
Volume 079 Intro Image.png

A person who ends his sentence with a musical note ♪ looks happier than necessary. 

"Hiyashi chūka now on sale ♪" 

"I'm going to commit seppuku ♪"

"I don't wanna die ♪"

Blow away your depressed feelings by a musical note ♪!

Now let's start volume 79 ♪♪
Volume 80
Volume 080 Intro Image.png Kids used to sing this song long ago, but it seems kids these days also sing it while jumping ropes, which reminds me of my childhood.

Kids "Let's pick up the postman's lost items! 1, 2, 3, ...10!"

Postman "Thank you!"

It's a cute song, but I wonder if the postman lost only letters. Honesty, youth, best friend, freedom, shining eyes and spirit of adventure!

Postman "Thank you!!" (crying bitterly)

Volume 80 now begins!!

Volume 81
Volume 081 Intro Image.png They say that half-bathing is good
for one's health! Time for volume 81
to begin!!
Volume 82
Volume 082 Intro Image.png There's a Japanese game called Atchi Muite Hoi (Look
That Way) where one player has to turn their head in
one of the four directions while the other player points
with a finger, hoping to guess the same direction.
Well, I've invented a secret weapon called Atchi Muite
Hoi 3-D that has ten directions instead. If a kid ever
challenges you to Atchi Muite Hoi, use this method to
childishly avoid losing!!
Volume 83
Volume 083 Intro Image.png I...I've been lied to!!!
Is it possible...that when you swallow watermelon
They don't grow inside your tummy?!
Is it possible that Volume 83 is about to start?!
Volume 84
Volume 084 Intro Image.png Would you believe it?! This T-shirt has the yellowness
of 300 lemons!! Volume 84 is about to begin!!
Volume 85
Volume 085 Intro Image.png Try making a four with your fingers! "Four!!"
Is it just me, or is your thumb bent way more
than you expected?!
Okay, here comes Volume 85!! Let's go!!
Volume 86

Volume 086 Intro Image.png

It's the 20th anniversary of One Piece! Maybe it's time... I actually take this seriously!!! Here comes volume 86!!
Volume 87

Volume 087 Intro Image.png

You got it!
Volume 87 begins!!
Volume 88

Volume 088 Intro Image.png

1. Once there was a little pond of water ♪ (Yo♪)

2. A ball fell in and splashed a lot or ♫ (SHOCK!!)
Maybe it's a downcast eye? (Aye-aye ♫)

3. And now it has begun to cry

4. Perhaps it's dripping like a candle (hot wax ♫)
Oops, we've had a company scandal ♫ (fat stacks ♫)

We're sorry ♫ for our crim-in-ali-ty
And hope you accept our a-po-lo-gy ♫
Volume 89

Volume 089 Intro Image.png

When everyone eats outside,
there's always bowl of fried chicken left.
Let's give them a name:
Sergeant Shoichi.
Just something like "Only Sergeant Shoichi left!
Who can settle this!"
For those who don't understand who he is just search it.
I'm sorry! Volume 89 begins!!

(Translator's Note: For those who "Don't understand", click here.)

Volume 90

Volume 090 Intro Image.png

What's the most
to be firm to the bite?
I took three hours to think this question.
Everyone must has such experience right?
The answer may be angry kid...
Or ass...
But it must...
be Shrimp?
Shrimp right?
Volume 90 begins!!
Volume 91

Volume 091 Intro Image.png

"Build shrines for Komainu!"
In Edo era, everywhere in Japan
received this message.
Local masons however,
"What Komainu?"
Never seen Komainu before.
No image search, no fax machine.
In such era, local masons
try their best to make "Komainu" by their imagination.
This is "The origin of Komainu!"
Let's search images (for Komainu) now!
Volume 91 begins!!

(Translator's Note: Komainu is a Japanese traditional imagination creature.)

Volume 92

Volume 092 Intro Image.png

48 brown and 100 gray colors!!

We have many brown and gray-related colors in Japan. This is because our ancestors created various colors despite the Edo Shogunate prohibiting the general public from wearing flashy kimonos.

I believe they wanted to be fashionable with more colors. I'll draw the Wano Arc with flashy colors! I'm looking forward to how the anime will handle it!! Let's start Volume 92!!

Volume 93

Volume 093 Intro Image.png

← Does everyone feel something like this!?

You just think something like this, right!?

"Soi" here, means "Soy"!!

Soy, Volume 93 begins!!

(Translator's note: Text in image from counterclockwise says "Upper left", "Lower right", "Soi!", "Turn around".)

Volume 94

Volume 094 Intro Image.png

Apparently, snails won't travel over their own trails

because they hate the sliminess of it. What gives?!!

Volume 95

Volume 095 Intro Image.png

You know how you start cleaning one tiny

corner of your room, and then it just never ever stops?!

Yean. Nice. I always wanted to say that (but not actually do it). Well, now i'm done. But this adventure isn't done by a long shot!! Enjoy volume 95!!

Volume 96

Volume 096 Intro Image.png

96 volumes!!

When I turned around, it becomes 69 volumes!!

...Or so I thought, but turning 96 around still gives us 96!!

Even if I tried to turn it around, turning back isn't an option anymore, as the Volume 100 party approaches!!

Volume 96, beginnn!!

Volume 97
Volume 097 Intro Image.png

Lately, my vision has been getting worse and I struggle to see a lot of smaller details, so when it's time to sleep, I have to wear glasses or I won't be able to see my dreams well.


Volume 97, beginnn!!

Volume 98
Volume 098 Intro Image.png

There are insects called "spiky-spikies". People discovered spiky-spikies without spikes, so they named them "spikeless spiky-spikies". Within that group, ones that do have spikes appeared, so they were named "spiked spikeless spiky-spikies". I thought that among them there might be some that are timid. And furthermore, I wondered if among those there were some that have flaws. "Flawed timid spiked spikeless spiky-spikies".

"Wano Country Climactic Awesome Volume 98" STARTING—!!!

Volume 99
Volume 099 Intro Image.png

← You pressed it, didn't you? You pressed it, right? It's not a video!!! Ah hah hah hah ha!! People press triangles, don't they. I too saw one the other day and wondered if it was a video, but when I pressed it, it turned out to be a sandwich. Nothing moves on paper, does it? Wrong. The story that has begun to move will not stop. Look forward to the connected covers, too!!

The just-before-Volume-100, Volume 99!! STARTING〜〜〜〜!!!

Volume 100
Volume 100 Intro Image.png

"It sounds like there are some upset people online. I'm sorry if anyone says anything to you at school." "I'm fine!!" says the little guardian. Big guardian: "Cheer up!!" A bunch of delicious food appears!! "I'm so exhausted..." "Get in!!" Car drives off!! Arrive at the hot spring!! "I caught a cold..." "Hey, that's not a cold!!" Off to check in at the hospital!! I'm the one who gets all the glory, but when you're in the vicinity of a famous person, there are lots of bad things that happen too. If I didn't have these bright guardian spirits around, I can tell you that I'd have collapsed long ago!! May I use the milestone of the 100th volume to express my appreciation to them? Thank you for everything, now and always!! It's volume 100!! Hope you enjoy it!!!

They say that's where you can get your hands on one of those things. If you wanna try one, try looking for that store. Well, not that there's any proof that those rumors are true.

Databook Yellow Intro Image.png Nami Before navigation existed, I heard people could only sail in water where land was somehow visible. When you're sailing and you look around to see that you're surrounded by water, it makes you feel insecure, doesn't it? From then, people found a landmark that would follow you around no matter where you go. The 'North Star'. There was even an era when people actually believed the compass pointed toward the 'North Star' at one point. I'm glad I was born into this era!! Because I can travel anywhere to go and meet all the beautiful treasures around the world ♥
One Piece Green: Secret Pieces
Databook Green Intro Image.png Usopp Don't you think that there's a lot of pirate ships with animals for figureheads? A long, long time ago, when ships were first made, people would have "launching ceremonies" where they would sacrifice animals for good luck. The animal figureheads are rooted from the times when they used to hang those sacrifices on the ships.

--so in other words, for Merry and Sunny... a sheep and lion needed to be sacrificed!!! Yikes~~!!

(The last part is a lie.)

One Piece Blue Deep: Characters World
Databook Blue Deep Intro Image.png Sanji You know my leg attack "diable jambe"? In the chef's world, there's also something called "Diavolo Cuisine". It's made using strong condiments like salt, pepper, and chili sauce and when you eat it, they say it tastes so hot that it feels like you're being tortured with fire by a devil. Any shithead on board our ship who talks back to me or steals food from the fridge gets "Diavolo Cuisine" for dinner.

You could say these 「masterpieces」 are some of the few sucessful sucessors of the will of the countless one-shots out there that have been left to rot. To simply call them "short stories" would be such a shame.
