One Piece, one of Shonen Jump’s most iconic manga, is about to hit an extremely special milestone: 1,000 chapters. After 20-years of continuous weekly serialization, that mammoth achievement is in reach in the near future. This historic moment is being celebrated by VIZ Media, the English publisher of the manga, who will be releasing weekly free chapters for fans to jump in, taking them out of the Shonen Jump digital vault and new ones will become free. Make sure you follow VIZ Media and Shonen Jump for more One Piece free chapters as we approach the milestone.
One Piece comes from mangaka Eiichiro Oda and follows Monkey D. Luffy who wants to become the King of all pirates. Along his quest, he meets a skilled swordsman named Roronoa Zoro; Nami, a greedy thief who has a knack for navigation; Usopp, a great liar who has an affinity for inventing; Sanji, a warrior cook; Chopper, a sentient deer who is also a skilled physician; and Robin, a former member of Baroque Works. The gang sets sail to unknown seas in Grand Line to find the treasure of One Piece.
With an amazing cast of characters, humor, and emotional storytelling, Oda has created a manga that has spanned two decades of manga readers. The anime adaptation has also served as a gateway into Japanese pop culture for many fans.
As the longest-running manga in history, jumping into One Piece can be scary – it has been for me. But with a Shonen Jump subscription, you can get access to the digital chapters for one flat fee of $1.99 a month. With hilarious characters, grand adventures, wonderfully energetic art, and world-building on a scale few creators could even dream of, One Piece has charmed millions of fans all over the world.
This week, One Piece free chapters are 1-8. And if you find yourself putting on a straw hat, come back to the Shonen Jump App next week to see which chapters are free next.
