One Piece Plot and Story Arcs.
In the past, there was this great pirate that everyone recognized as the pirate king, when he was being executed his last words were that he has left all of his treasure, the One-Piece, on one island and whoever finds it would become the next king of the pirates. The story starts 22 years later, when our protagonist, Monkey d. Luffy, starts his journey to create his own pirate crew so he can find the one piece and become the king of the pirates. During this journey Luffy and his crew will visit various weird islands with different social structures and mysteries, fighting marines, saving the occasional Kingdom from corrupted members of the world government, while indirectly unveiling the secrets and mysteries that surround the world and its history.
Is One Piece really that good?
There’s no other anime that can compare to One Piece. That isn’t to say that it’s the best and that other manga aren’t unique in their own ways, but One Piece just does things that you will probably never see in anything else. First of all, it’s an ongoing story for over 20 years… and still progressively gets better every arc in my opinion.
There are hundreds of characters, you get to know many of them incredibly deeply, the story spans basically an entire globe, the concept of character abilities is comprised with one of the most unique and fun super powers of any “super power” story I’ve ever encountered, the epic parts are absurdly epic because of all the time Oda takes to build them up, and the sad parts are equally gut wrenching because of all the time that Oda takes to set those up as well. We wrote a complete list about our TOP RATED ANIME here.

When will One Piece finish?
Now, considering Oda’s comments, does this mean that the story is ending before December 31st 2024? Debatable.
Before 2014, when Oda and his editor first made the 10 year comment he was publishing an average of 43 chapters per year.
After that, before his 2019 comments, he went down to an average of 39 chapters per year. Since he reinforced his 2024 goal in 2019, I think this pace is enough to reach it.
Since then, his average has gone down to 33.5 chapters per year, with Oda recently stating in his Jump festa announcement that he can’t believe Wano isn’t over yet. Indicating that he’s at least somewhat behind schedule.
If one Piece were really going to end in 2024, that would mean that at Oda’s current pace, the story would be ending around Chapter 1136, 94 chapters from the one releasing tomorrow. Comparatively, if Oda had mantained his 39 chapters per year rhythm in 2020 and 2021, the story would have reached chapter 1162 by the end of 2024, meaning 120 chapters from the one releasing tomorrow. Since we’re talking averages, its not precise, but Oda’s change in pace has set him back at least 30-ish chapters or 1 year from his estimated end time. Meaning that by this estimate, One Piece should end in 2025…. right?
How is One Piece storytelling?
Oda intently focuses hard on specific characters and goes into their back stories as they were children so that we can truly understand their crazy mentalities as adults. It’s so deep and yes sometimes very poorly paced but ultimately he doesn’t want you to just see all the bad guys as simply “bad guys” but understand their perspectives of where they came from mentally as to why they are the way they are.
Some of the best parts about the story is how he sets up plots and secrets hundreds of chapters before seeing the fruition of them. Things you would never expect or things you long forgotten about end up coming into play in such an amazing way that it just makes you revere the manga artist while you read.
