If setting sail into the wacky world of One Piece manga is what ‘floats your boat’, then you are among the millions of people around the world who feel the same. With its pirates hunting for treasure and quirky characters with weird eccentricities, the manga is one of the biggest of its kind. Eiichiro Oda’s masterpiece takes readers on a journey that has more twists than a mystery novel. While some fans enjoy cheering on the comic’s villains with grandiose ambitions and others root for the oh-so-optimistic Monkey D. Luffy.

But one thing all fans have in common is their love for the iconic comic. And for those fans, particular news from the New York Times will surely make their day.

This One Piece edition just marked a milestone

Since its arrival almost two decades ago, One Piece has captivated manga readers and lovers of its anime alike. The comic’s fanbase has only increased a staggering amount since then. This is probably how Vol. 103 of One Piece has landed at number four on the New York Times Bestsellers List. This feat is a testament to the manga’s internationally growing popularity.

Oda, who is known to be very particular about how his brainchild is portrayed, is probably patting himself on the back right now. This volume that depicts the epic battles between Luffy and Kaido of the Beasts has made history for its creator. No wonder the anime adaptation of the manga has been the talk of the town for months.
