One Piece Timeline

A gallery of key events and developments across the first 1000 chapters of the manga.

The storyline of One Piecemanga and anime alike—is commonly divided into individual story arcs for easier understanding. While the exact divisions are somewhat fluid, it is generally understood that an arc begins when the Straw Hat Pirates land on a specific island and ends when they leave.

All story arcs are grouped into larger sagas, which tend to reflect goals and/or enemies that the Straw Hats pursue across multiple islands.

Arlong Park Arc

With Sanji from the Baratie joining the crew and Nami stealing the ship, the crew follow her to an island under the control of the fish-man pirate Arlong. Nami reveals that she is a member of the Arlong Pirates and simply helped the crew so she could take their gold later. But why would she follow a man like Arlong?

Loguetown Arc

After Nami officially joins, the crew heads to the last town before the entrance to the Grand Line, Loguetown, the place where Gold Roger was both born and executed.

Short-Term Focused Cover Page Serials

Further information: Cover Page and Short-Term Focused Cover Page Serials

Due to the One Piece manga's nature as a weekly serial, each individual chapter has its own title page to start that series' section of Weekly Shonen Jump. While most manga artists use this space either to expand the chapter's length by a page or to draw a one-off illustration, Oda will take minor characters and defeated villains, and give them their own story arcs, which sometimes end up coinciding with the goings-on of Luffy and his crew at some point. Each of these stories, known officially as Short-Term Focused Cover Page Serials (短期集中表紙連載, Tanki Shūchū Hyōshi Rensai?), or "Cover Stories" for short, run for 20 to 40 or more consecutive installments, interrupted only by title pages drawn in color. Each "episode" is one panel, with a caption that includes the title of the arc (given by Oda himself) and a description of what happens in the image. After each arc has run its course, there is a set of "normal" chapter title pages that showcases each member of the Straw Hat Pirates, and then a new story arc is introduced. Starting from just prior to the ninth cover arc, a new segment called "Where They Are Now" began, catching up with other characters from a specific arc and their current day to day life prior to the specific story connected to the full cover arc.

While these "Cover Stories" (as fans call them) are part of the canon manga story, only three have appeared thus far in the anime: Buggy's Crew Adventure Chronicles (episodes 46-47), Diary of Koby-Meppo (episodes 68-69) and Straw Hat's Separation Serial (episodes 453-456). However, it is not infrequent that the encounters caused by the mini arc do appear in the anime without any explanation, including Jango's recruitment into the Marines.

    Anime-Only Arcs

    Because the One Piece manga is still ongoing, Toei Animation uses non-manga material (filler) as a way to slow down the progression of the plot. If the anime were to catch up with the manga, Toei would either have to wait for Oda to release more manga chapters, take the story in a direction independent of the manga (as was done in Rurouni Kenshin, Elfen Lied, InuYasha and Fullmetal Alchemist), or simply end it; any of these would likely damage the popularity of the series, and would not reflect well on either Toei Animation or Oda. Thus, additional material is the only viable alternative.

    Unlike non-manga material in many other shows, most One Piece filler takes place in story arcs independent from the main plot and having little to no effect on the subsequent canon story. These arcs also generally consist of lighter fare than Oda's own work, containing much more comedy, the presence of child characters, and little in the way of drama. Currently, the anime has sixteen story arcs not present in the manga:

    TV Specials

    The first four TV specials and the first recap are hour-long specials that aired in the series timeslot in place of a regular episode. TV Specials five onward are two-hours long and aired outside of the TV Series schedule.

    The 'Episode Of' specials (following from movies 8 and 9) are part of a series that re-adapts story arcs from the manga with new animation.

    Recaps

    TV Specials

    Crossovers

    The characters of the series (mainly the protagonist crew) sometimes crossover to other franchises, and vice-versa. Those cross overs are not considered canon to the main series, however the characters remember their past encounters with the same crossed over group. This is a list of the crossover thus far:

    Translation and Dub Issues

    For story changes to individual arcs and sagas, see their respective articles.

    It should be noted that discrepancies and debates exist over many of the above names, as Eiichiro Oda rarely if ever gives "official" names to different sections of the storyline. During the early years of the manga and anime, names often referenced the Straw Hats' introductions (e.g., "the Usopp arc") and/or major antagonists (e.g., "the Don Krieg arc"); location-based names became the norm after the Straw Hats entered the Grand Line, and the story increased emphasis on exploration.[citation needed]

    Similar debates exist over what qualifies as a "saga"—particularly post-timeskip, where the Straw Hats have entered nearly every new island with at least two carryover plotlines from a prior one.

    Relatedly, the distinction between "arcs" and "sagas" is largely original to the English-speaking fanbase; Japanese fans and promotional materials almost exclusively use the term hen (?), e.g. "East Blue-hen" for the East Blue Saga, "Impel Down-hen" for the Impel Down Arc, and even "Super Rookies-hen" for the entire pre-timeskip story.[3][4] This simpler convention is not without its own ambiguities and conflations—"Arabasta-hen", for instance, is commonly used for the storyline taking place in Arabasta proper[5] and for all of the lead-up storylines featuring Nefertari Vivi aboard the Going Merry.[6]
