1999 was a very special year for the anime industry, with the arrival of series like Hunter x Hunter, Digimon Adventure and, in particular, the debut of ONE PIECE , the work of Eiichiro Oda which shocked the whole world and recorded all kinds of records that are difficult to overcome.

It was the October 20, 1999 when Fuji TV broadcast the first historical episode of the pirate epic and introduced us for the first time to Monkey D. Luffy, Shanks and his crew, the fruits of the devil and the feeling of discovery and danger associated with seafaring.

Left his home village of Foosha, Luffy will soon encounter disreputable characters, but that's what he'll want at all costs in his crew, namely the pirate hunter Roronoa Zoro and the thief and member of the pirates of Arlong, Nami.

To nostalgically remember those particularly important moments throughout the series, user @mugiboya shared a photo from 1999 on Reddit, and a very recent one, both with Japanese speakers from Luffy, Zoro and NamiMayumi Tanaka, Kazuya Nakai and Akemi Okamura respectively.

Recall that Tonoyasu will be the protagonist of episode 937 and that according to some fans, in Chapter 1000 of ONE PIECE Kaido could die.
