I was putting off homework and flipping through some One Piece when I found this quote. Oda’s one of my favorite modern artists of any medium for a lot of reasons, but I think this quote sums up my admiration for him perfectly. Think about it! When this was written, One Piece was only 4 years old, and 12 years later it’s still going strong because he’s committed to his story and his characters and his readers.

The Importance of Journey in One Piece
Even though we have one Titan of an upstart, everyone knows who the true king of manga really is.
The ship that just keeps on sailing, One Piece, has 300 million copies in print all over Japan.

One Piece has come a long way and that’s the biggest key to its success.
They’re definitely all quite lengthy, with all of them being at least over 300 chapters. I haven’t read past chapter 30 of Fairy Tail so I can’t properly judge it. As for the other three, One Piece, without a doubt, is my favorite.
This is really long, I’m so sorry. But here are reasons why I recommend choosing to read/watch One Piece over the others…
ATTENTION OP FANDOM
One Piece is NOT on hiatus until next year. It is only on break next week (which is bad enough). The “next year” in Mangastream’s translation is referring to the next publishing year, not the next calendar year. This week’s issue of Jump is issue #52, and next week it is starting again at issue #1. One Piece will resume in issue #2.
So don’t despair, you’ll only have to bite your nails and live in a constant state of panic for 2 weeks, not until January.
