How should One Piece end?

One Piece: Now the final end is certain

Everything has to end someday. Even a seemingly endless anime epic like One Piece. The straw hat gang has been offering pirate entertainment at its best for 22 years, but now the One Piece creator spoke personally about when exactly One Piece will be over for good.

For those who don't know: One Piece is much more than just the anime TV series. There are also movies, but above all extremely successful mangas. With over 400 million volumes sold, One Piece has long been considered the most successful manga series in the world and will probably continue to be unbeaten for a long time to come.

Finishing such a profitable series means a lot - for the fans too. One Piece creator Eiichiro Oda knows that better than anyone, which is why he is gradually preparing the fans for it. Oda hinted at the end of One Piece several times before. For example, he already announced that One Piece would be over after a little over a hundred volumes.

In the summer of last year, the entire One Piece story was told about eighty percent, according to Eiichiro Oda. Now, twenty percent that is left over might not sound like much at first. However, if you consider that it took Oda 22 years to make the first eighty percent, there seems to be a lot of One Piece material left.

In a new interview, Oda announced that he would like to finish One Piece in five years. If he can keep this plan, it would mean that the very last One Piece finale awaits you in 2024. It can be assumed that Oda is mainly referring to the manga, but the end of the corresponding anime should follow shortly afterwards.
