One Piece 1000 Logs, stylized as ONE PIECE 1000 LOGS, is a celebratory project being held by Shueisha in honor of the manga's 1000th chapter. It features the World Top 100 popularity poll, promotional artwork and videos, free chapters and episodes, and collaborations. The campaign includes the launch of a new slogan “We Are One.”[1]

Information

World Top 100

World Top 100, or WT100, is the first global popularity poll held from January 3, 2021 to February 28. Fans could vote online and by mail-in postcards, and they could vote every day for the duration of the poll. Characters were organized by arc introduced or could be searched for by name. Regional totals were viewable on the poll website for Japan, Asia, the United States, Europe, Africa, and the Middle East.

To promote the poll, WT100's website included an AR Collection where fans could earn and view AR versions of One Piece World Collectable Figures from the Wano Kuni volumes by voting every day. Shueisha also released a special PV at the launch of the popularity contest featuring the song "Dead or Alive" by Japanese metalcore band Crossfaith.[2] Additionally, a full page color ad for the poll was published in the New York Times on February 4.[1]

Shueisha produced a broadcast program called One Piece Times to announce and discuss findings from the poll with One Piece fans from around the world. Before the end of the poll, the One Piece Times “WT100 Preliminary Results Broadcast” premiered February 20 on the official One Piece YouTube channel. Hosted by comedy duo Kamaitachi, the program welcomed guests like Greg Warner and other fans from around the world to announce and discuss the poll's rankings before the final week.[3] Additional One Piece Times events will be hosted in the future to summarize the poll's final results.[4]

  • A child wearing a straw hat stands at the top of a playground and declares that he will be the Pirate King like Luffy.
  • A child playing soccer poses like Luffy activating Gear 2nd while protecting a goal.
  • A boxer who is defeated puts his hand in the air and declares he will become stronger like Zoro after facing Mihawk.
  • A graduating volleyball player thanks her coach like Sanji leaving the Baratie.
  • A group of high schoolers draw a scar like Luffy's on their sleeping friend, but when he was up and realizes, they show him that they've drawn 'X's on all of their wrists like the crew during Arabasta Arc.
  • The same kids who were playing soccer notice a group of old men who are sitting around a table like the Five Elders.
  • A man at a bar declared that dreams never die like Marshall D. Teach after overhearing a group of young men talk about their professional lives.
  • The same guy who had his face drawn on is sitting by himself on his school rooftop before his friends come to get him, reminding him like Luffy after Ace's death that he still has people he cares about.

Free Chapters and Episodes

Shueisha periodically released volumes 1-71 for free on the Shonen Jump+ app and Zebrack, Shueisha's digital reading platform.[6] Episodes have also been published on the official One Piece YouTube channel with five episodes uploaded each Friday at 17:00 JST.[7]

1000 Logs Oda Letter.png "1000 Chapters!!

I, uh, wow...Words pretty much fail to describe the whirlwind these past 23 years have been. Literally half of my life has revolved around the almighty WEEKLY SERIALIZATION hehe. But it's not just me, Luffy and the Strawhats have navigated themselves to so many different islands and found themselves caught up in so many adventures. At this point, even I'm not sure how many lives they've touched along the way! But it's thanks to them that so many special people have entered my own life; first and foremost among them being my family. All of these people have supported me through the years and I am deeply indebted to each of them. Meanwhile, my readers have been leading their own bustling lives. There's a certain theory that exists for long-term readership in the entertainment world that states, “A given pool of readers will rotate out of a series after five years.” And so for a while now, I've avoided calling my readers, ‘fans’. It's like they say, “Pride cometh before a fall.” I convinced myself that I shouldn't get too full of myself because my readers would eventually leave the series and move on with their lives. Let me say that all of you have put me to shame for thinking such a thing. Your belief in Luffy has led me to believe in all of you, and that is what allows me to continue drawing exactly the kind of manga I want to draw. So here we are, ready to dip our toes into the final stages of the story. It's taken us a long time to reach one thousand chapters. However, it's because I've completed a thousand chapters that you must believe I'll take us to the end. The story waiting for you will defy expectations! I mean it!!

I have a favor to ask. This is for everyone with whom —by some means or another— I've managed to create a bond, in other words, the FANS of the world! My story is a long one. But for just a while longer, please watch over Luffy and his crew as they continue their adventure!

January 2021 Eiichiro Oda"
