Wow, that's a rather spoiler-heavy cover for anime-only folks or those not up to date in the manga.

Did they change the article after the fact? It seems pretty spoiler free to me...

Anyways, that's a pretty impressive milestone. The series inches ever closer to the 500 million mark. I wish they'd do the campaign on Twitter or something, I'm not really interested in signing up for Tik Tok just for an anime event.

Yeah, it was the cover of the volume that releases tomorrow(98). Had some character spoilers from where the manga is now.

Thanks for changing it!

It is utterly insane that One Piece is about to overtake Batman as the second-best-selling comic series of all time by units sold, behind only Superman...and those other two have existed for over 75 years with hundreds of authors and artists working on them. And since American comics are sold as single-issue floppies, by sheer volume alone One Piece is far and away ahead of them. I'm not sure if we'll ever see something like this again, and it's been an extreme privilege to experience Oda's storytelling for so many years.

The final volume will sell like crazy. 500 million will most likely happen in 2022. As you can see, there is no growth outside of Japan with overseas sales stuck at 80m.

when the manga ends.., hope Oda will rekax after so many years of writing & drawing the manga,.. but stay "script writer" for a continuation of the anime (!)..keep the anime going with his genius, but have less "work" to fo himself
