The One Piece Complete Collection (ONE PIECE 総集編 Wan Pīsu Sōshūhen?, also known as Log Books or Logs after their numbering scheme) is an alternative publication format for the One Piece manga, meant primarily to help new fans catch up on the series backstory as quickly and economically as possible.

In format and design, these Collections are essentially Weekly Shonen Jump volumes that focus exclusively on One Piece. Each compiles at least twenty chapters of the manga, interspersed with advertisements, interviews, and other exclusive bonuses (partly to compensate for their lack of tankōbon extras, such as the SBS and Usopp Gallery Pirates).

Overview

Like Jump, the Complete Collections are printed on B5-size pages of recycled paper, and keep most color art intact (unlike the smaller tankōbon volumes, which use higher-quality paper and grayscale most color art). Their bonus features include posters signed by Eiichiro Oda, supplemental postcards, and special tankōbon-sized dust-jackets.

The Complete Collections also follow a more irregular release schedule than the tankōbon; typically, five or six are released in monthly succession, followed by a years-long hiatus to allow the manga proper to accumulate more material. During the early 2000s, they were periodically re-released, with advertisements (internal and external) updated accordingly. But otherwise, logs characteristics remain unchanged, even the selling price.

Logs 1st to 10th

The First Log was issued in early 2005 (shortly after Shueisha's report that One Piece had sold 100 million tankōbon volumes faster than any previous manga). After a period of time to gauge interest, the Second through Seventh Logs were released as a monthly series, covering the storyline up through the Arabasta Saga.

In early 2008, a second monthly series was issued, beginning with the Eighth through Tenth Logs (originally announced as part of the first series, but dropped for unknown reasons) compiling the Sky Island Saga. These were followed by a re-release of all ten Logs in chronological order, ultimately segueing into the Eleventh through Fourteenth Logs (see below).

Near the end of 2009, a third series—this time bimonthly—was issued to coincide with the premiere of One Piece Film: Strong World. This series focused solely on re-releasing the first ten Logs, with no new materials besides updated advertisements.

Logs 11th to 20th

The Eleventh through Fourteenth Logs were released in mid-2009 (as part of the second series), compiling the Water 7 Saga. After this (and the third series), production lowered as a whole, with only a few scattered re-releases of previous Logs and singular releases of new ones.

In early 2011, the Fifteenth and Sixteenth Logs were issued, compiling the Thriller Bark Saga. Roughly eighteen months later, these were succeeded by the Seventeenth through Twentieth Logs, which compiled the Summit War Saga and completed the manga's pre-timeskip material. Subsequently, the series went on hiatus for nearly five years.

Logs 21st to 28th

In mid-2017, to commemorate the manga's twentieth anniversary, a new monthly series was issued for post-timeskip material. This series consisted of the Twenty-First through Twenty-Eighth Logs, compiling the Fish-Man Island Saga and the Dressrosa Saga.

Most notably, each of these Logs has contained a handwritten message from Eiichiro Oda, sharing (much like the earlier One Para series) behind-the-scenes trivia.

To be honest, I have lots of such characters, but if I have to choose one, it must be VIVI!! No, she was Miss Wednesday. At first she appeared as an agent of Baroque Works, but I didn't think more about her. But, one time I drew Miss Wednesday with her hair down, and found, "Ohh she looks like a princess!"

I got the plan of the Alabasta Kingdom arc a while before. And then what will it be like if this girl would be the princess of Alabasta? The Alabasta arc started like that. For that reason, still beloved by fans, the character, Nefeltari Vivi was born. Serialization is WONDERLAND

Rob Lucci had many highlight scenes, you know. To tell you the truth, Water 7 arc was a story to let shipwright join Straw Hats.

Franky joining them and Straw Hats saying goodbye to Going Merry in the finale were the only events I determined to draw before the arc started. First of all, I intended to throw my audience into confusion. I drew Franky in a way that allows audience to hate him. I made many shipwrights appear.

After drawing various characters, I wondered, "Whom should I make a villain?" OK. Let's draw this weird guy with pigeon as a villain! Yeah, he is Rob Lucci!! Manga serialization is a wonderland. Move forward where you now consider interesting!!

I haven't finished ONE PIECE yet despite the 20-year-serialization. The main reason is these guys (Shichibukai).

At first, I intended to finish ONE PIECE in 5 years. It was supposed to be a story to fight against pirates called Yonkou. However, I came up with the idea of Shichibukai... I just thought, "It would be badass if these characters showed up". Then as you can see, it caused this long serialization!!

Why didn't I make them Gobukai or Nibukai!! (TN: "Go" means 5, "Ni" means 2 and "Shichi" as in Shichibukai means 7 in Japanese.) I thought 7 was a cool number!! That being said, I don't regret it since I drew what I wanted. ...I'm regretting a bit!!

Comment Translation Topic: Anyway, the work was difficult - color illustration
I can't forget the color spread in which many Marines gathered for ONE PIECE Film Z. I'm not totally sure why I decided to draw it, but I remember saying, "I wanna draw this". I just thought, "It would be enjoyable to imagine and draw many Marines in their youth", but it turned out to be really hard work. First of all, I told my 2 editors to make copies of all panels in all volumes where Marines are included since of course I didn't remember all of their faces. Then, the editors sent me copies as thick as Kojien, I believe it was hard work for them since the copy even covered some Marines who spoke only a few words. After checking if the editors missed some panels, I drew how Marines looked like 20 years ago. It was really hard and interesting work since I was busy due to weekly chapters and supervising Film Z.

...Wait, it seems I haven't focused on telling about the theme of this column yet, right?

Speaking of hard work, it's really hard to draw patterns of Kimono like I did in Kabuki color spread. On top of that, There are many rules for Kimono we don't know. Well, whatever. I don't feel good to say repeatedly, "It was hard work". Actually, they weren't hard work at all !!

One day, I read a book and found a photo about Drum Rock. If I remember correctly, Drum Rock is located in Canada. The rock looked cool, so I drew an island called Drum Island with a mountain called Drum Rocky. Thus, so-called Chopper arc started. Chopper arc started without specifying the detailed design of Chopper. I keep in mind that I should draw what I want to draw in those situations, like "Snow is beautiful", "I've created a midriff-baring old female character!".

Anyway, when I had trouble deciding how I should wrap up Drum Island arc, I found a book about environmental pollution. According to the book, yellow snow falls in some cities due to dust from factories. I thought, "Oh, snow can be colored in some cases. If pink snow fell on Drum Rocky, it would look like a real cherry blossom tree. Wait... Dr. Kureha wears a cherry blossom T-shirt. Wait... The shape of Chopper's hoof is similar to cherry blossoms. Wait... Does it mean I can wrap up Drum Island arc thanks to cherry blossoms??"

In short, the finale scene of Drum Island arc was created just by luck. That "mountain" had greater highlight scene than I expected. It was so lucky that I drew the mountain in that specific shape. Manga serialization is a wonderland!!

Comment Translation Topic: Characters that were hard to design

Hancock and Shirahoshi. It really bothers me to make designs of beautiful women since the amount of female faces I like are limited considering the long serialization of ONE PIECE. I can make designs of male characters as many as I want. I can draw various female characters' faces such as Amazon Lily women, but things are different when it comes to "beautiful woman".

I hyped up my audience that Hancock is incredibly beautiful although I didn't specify her detailed designs before she appeared. It means I had to convince my audience of Hancock's beauty once she actually appeared in manga. I managed to find a solution about what kind of face the most beautiful woman in the world would have. I was relieved to see Hancock became a popular character.

However, I hyped up my audience again thoughtlessly that Mermaid Princess is as beautiful as Hancock!! One more female character as beautiful as Hancock..!? Actually, I'm kind of a person who can expect my potential in the future. Then, I produced a beautiful character named Shirahoshi. She was the first woman during my more-than-10-years-serialization whose eyebrow was downward-sloping!! (the eyebrows which make her look like as if in trouble) I hadn't drawn a woman like Shirahoshi since I love strong-willed women, but I enjoyed the drawing process of Shirahoshi, thinking, "She looks nice than expected."

Now then, I should make a beautiful woman appear in "there" in the future...!!

I have to mention Law. Actually it's not too much to say that all Supernovas have more highlight scenes than I imagined. I created Supernovas right before the chapter where they got introduced. None of them existed in my plot notebooks before that chapter. I was in desperate situation, worrying, "At this rate, Sabaody arc will not be interesting enough." Then, inspiration for 9 Supernovas came to my mind unconsciously. I should have reduced the number of Supernovas since they were too many, but after all, I made all of them appear in manga!! I'm really surprised they survive till now since I thought about half of them would drop out of tough New World already.

They are worst!! They are the worst generation, indeed. I imagined Kid would become an important character, but...Law!! I didn't imagine he would become such an important character. Weekly serialization is a wonderland.

Comment Translation Topic: Which characters would you like to go into detail about if you had enough time?
Well, there is a helpful means named "cover story" in ONE PIECE for that purpose... Anyway, there remain some characters I want to go into detail. It would be interesting if I focus on Marines. I can come up with a magnificent story about Garp. I'd like to draw some relationship and talks between him and Akainu, Aokiji, Smoker, Hina, Koby who joined Marines one after another, Cipher Pol and Roger.

It would also be interesting if I focus on Revolutionary Army, mainly Dragon. Why do they intend to make a revolution? With what belief? How did they meet? The story about Luffy's birth would be interesting. Many of those stories would be serious.

All of the stories about their lives lead to Luffy!! OK!! I'll draw Luffy!!

Omake

Interestingly, one of the features that most of the Logs share are the publication of some omakes, a Japanese word meaning extras or bonus. Those extra comics are three-page ones that tend to parody other genres.

Those side comics were drawn when Oda was given three sheets of blank paper by his editor and told to draw anything. Animated versions, subtitled as Mugiwara Theater, were broadcasted on October 2006 along recap episodes 279 to 283. They featured omakes released from 2nd to 7th Logs.

Some omakes were released outside of the Logs. They are listed below with the others:

Chopperman has starred in the animated New Year's Special filler that aired on December 23, 2007.

Episode 369 also featured a special easter egg referring to Chopperman when Oars suddenly discovered the cockpit in its stomach and called itself "Oars Bomber" and Chopper was shocked by hearing about that (and that moment, he had the Chopperman cape).

Translation and Dub Issues

While the Complete Collection format has been adopted by a few markets outside of Japan (such as France), it remains foreign to all English-speaking regions.

From 2010 on, Viz Media has offered a quasi-substitute in the form of Omnibus editions. These compile three tankōbon volumes into one—matching the typical Complete Collection in length—but are otherwise identical to the tankōbon, sharing none of the Complete Collections' features or formatting.
