One Piece Blue: Grand Data File (ワンピース ブルー グランドデータファイル Wan Pīsu Burū Gurando Dētafairu?) is the second databook. It was released on August 2, 2002 and covers material from Volume 1 to Volume 24, comprising all of the East Blue Saga and Arabasta Saga and the beginnings of the Sky Island Saga.

While slightly shorter than its predecessor in length, One Piece Blue is much wider in scope, comprising two main sections:

  • Data File, indexing virtually every character in addition to every Devil fruit, animal, and island encountered thus far
  • Making of One Piece, collecting a considerable amount of behind-the-scenes material supplied directly by Eiichiro Oda

These are interspersed by installments of the Luffy Pirates Four-Panel Theater, a new feature placing the Straw Hat Pirates (and Vivi) in yonkoma gag strips.

Contents

The contents proper are preceded by a set of commemorative stamps and iron-prints themed after the Straw Hats, as well as a One Piece Colors collection featuring:

History of the Adventure

Summarizes every major story event from the first twenty-four volumes - with illustrations - up to the Straw Hats' departure from Mock Town in Chapter 226.

Characters Directory

Names and profiles every character from the first twenty-four volumes, up to Chapter 226's Shoujou and his Utan Divers. Each character is indexed by the volume (and, to a lesser extent, the exact page) of their first appearance.

Unlike One Piece Red's character files, this section does not restrict itself to "major" characters, and includes a number of one-panel background characters (e.g. Samurai Batts), unseen characters (e.g. Willie Gallon), inanimate objects (e.g. Luffy's Fish-Man sketch from Chapter 69), author in-jokes (e.g. "AfrOda") and even caricatures of One Piece's real-life editors Takanori Asada and Takahiro Habuta. As a result, the individual profiles are much shorter, ranging from one page to one-twelfth of a page.

Eiichiro Oda's Workshop

An in-depth diagram of Eiichiro Oda's home and workshop, divided into four quadrants.

Q&A

Transcribes an interview between Oda and an unidentified fan, consisting of 76 questions organized into five sections.

Depicts a number of the gag logos that Oda sometimes sketches onto the title pages he submits to Shonen Jump (inevitably replaced with the "proper" One Piece logo in actual printings). Among the more notable:

  • A Typhoon no. 16 Nears logo to mark the approach of Typhoon Nari
  • A Dragon Ball logo "accidentally" sketched while thinking about Goku's latest battle
  • A Gand-iece logo, complete with sketch of Mahatma Gandhi
