Last summer, it was announced that One Piece was entering its final arc, which should take four or five years to wrap up, and this month the manga reached its 1,000 chapter. That’s incredible.

Below is Oda’s latest letter to readers, marking the milestone.

The manga’s publisher Shueisha is also planning to release One Piece volume one to 71 free of charge through Shonen Jump + and the Zebrack app. It’s also asking readers to vote for their favorite One Piece character.
