During the last edition of the variety show Sono Neta, Neta ni Shite II Desuka?, published May 5th, one of the editors of the magazine Weekly shonen jump, Kohei Onishi, affirms that there are about four or five years left to complete the manga of Eiichiro Oda, One piece. The publisher also found that this includes about twenty to thirty other compilation volumes.

It should be noted that this is not the first time anyone inside or outside the editor has provided an estimate of the time to complete the manga, and in fact, it is not the first time that "five years" has been mentioned. In addition, the comments indicated a large incongruity in the statement as where at the current rate One piece publishes between three and four compilation volumes per year, whereby the “between twenty and thirty volumes” do not correspond to the given time estimate. In the end, there doesn't seem to be any real certainty about how much is left to complete this work.

The franchise has inspired several adaptations to other media, the most important being the anime, which has aired since October 1999 and which the studios are responsible for producing. Toei animation since then.
