This weekend One Piece hit its historic 1000th chapter. Created, written, and drawn by mangaka Eiichiro Oda, One Piece is a member of the original Big Three manga and has shaped a generation of weebs. From the horrible 4Kids localizations and beyond, One Piece is a cornerstone of anime and at just under 1000 episodes of anime, we talk about it all. We talk about how Oda brought real pirate history into his vast world, how there is an island made of cake, and how this absurd pirate fantAsy adventure also touches on salient topics. And we do it all with the help of our resident Straw Hat, LaNeysha.
