1000 chapters!

Wow ... I can't find words to describe the whirlwind of the past 23 years. I've literally dedicated half my life to this almighty 'WEEKLY SERIES', hehe. But it's not just about me, Luffy and his friends have sailed to so many different islands and had different adventures too. At this point I am not sure how many souls this story reached, but thanks to this fact I have met so many wonderful people, of course my family is the most important of them all. All of them have supported me over the years and I am indebted to each of them. On the other hand, I also have thousands of important people in my heart, my beloved readers. For a long time I believed that readers of my series would soon get bored with my story and forget about it 5 years after it was written. However, I am ashamed of the fact that I belittled all of you at the time. Right now, you are the ones who keep me going. With this motivation, I'm ready to go into the manga's final plans. It took us many years to reach 1,000 chapters and so I plan to make the ending of the story really unique. You have my word!
