Author's Notes
One Piece episode A 2 Boichi Intro Image Boichi:
Along with other mangaka from the Jump magazine, I had the opportunity to work on a project to celebrate the 1000th One Piece chapter. Following that, I received a "thank you" letter from Eiichiro Oda: "Let us continue to bring Jump to life together."
That's why I dedicated all my energy to the creation of the two One Piece episode A volumes, to live up to Mr. Oda's expectations. I'm well aware of the progress I still need to make, but as long as you, dear readers, continue to sustain me, I plan to fully invest myself to be worthy of my place within Jump, at Mr. Oda's side.
My heart will always be with Jump!
One Piece episode A 2 Ryo Ishiyama Intro Image Ryo Ishiyama:
My participation in this experience will be an unforgettable experience.
One Piece is a work that has always followed me. I've read it since my childhood, and it's what made me dream of becoming a mangaka.
So, the creation of a One Piece spin-off will remain a treasure in my life.
I hope this work will become your treasure, as well.
I hope you have a good time reading episode A, which finds itself at an explosive end!
