Shueisha's Shonen Jump+ website has announced that the website and app will launch another spinoff manga of Eiichiro Oda's One Piece manga on June 18. The new spinoff is titled Koisuru One Piece (Loving One Piece), and Daiki Ihara is drawing the manga. Similar to the other spinoff manga that will run on Shonen Jump+, Koisuru One Piece is a gag manga that Oda himself has authorized. The tagline on the image below reads, "The spinoff gag that temps God sets sail!!" This year's 29th issue of Weekly Shonen Jump on Monday also teased that the first chapter will feature a couple's first date at a zoo while they "search for Chopper" there.
Ihara previously published the Ihara 20days' manga on Shonen Jump+.
The site had revealed earlier this month that Nakamaru will launch the One Piece Koby ni no Kobiyama: Urifutatsu Nagi no Ōhihō (Kobiyama, Who Looks Like Koby: Two Piece in a Pod) spinoff manga (pictured below) on June 18. Both Koisuru One Piece and One Piece Koby ni no Kobiyama: Urifutatsu Nagi no Ōhihō will also serialize on the official One Piece franchise website.
Koisuru One Piece is the fourth new One Piece spinoff manga Shueisha has announced in the last month. Yoshikazu Amami (Battle Spirits Burning Soul) launched an "officially authorized" spinoff manga titled Chin Piece (pictured at right) in the July issue of Shueisha's Saikyō Jump magazine, which shipped on June 1.
Additionally, One Piece is inspiring a crossover manga with the YouTuber group Fischer's. In the manga, the members of Fischer's will appear in the One Piece world. Semimaru Aburakōji is drawing the manga, and the series will premiere in the September issue of Saikyō Jump on August 3.
One Piece will have a "shocking important announcement" in this year's 34th issue of Shueisha's Weekly Shonen Jump on July 23. The new collaboration manga with Fischer's and the upcoming announcement are part of the manga's "One Piece day" 21st anniversary celebrations for July 22 (although the manga actually launched on July 19, 1997, it was advertised as launching on July 22).
