When Tanaka was asked about the current status of the One Piece anime, he replied:
“Anime has to end in 7 or 8 years. I don’t know how this story will end, so I want to stay healthy until the last episode.
If I was going to die, I would ask someone who knows the ending: “Tell me what happened at the end and let me die now (laughs)”
“Some time ago I was wondering a lot about what the treasure of “One Piece” will be revealed in the end, I think it’s about “friends” or “bonds”, something conceptual like that, however, Eichiro Oda himself (manga author ) told me: “It’s not like that, treasure is material and very interesting.” That’s why I wanted to wait until the end to see what would happen.
Eiichiro Oda began publishing Shueisha’s Weekly Shonen Jump manga magazine on July 22, 1997, and reached a thousand chapters published on January 4. The franchise has over 490 million copies in circulation worldwide and the 100th compiled volume was released in Japan in September. 3, 2021.
