Shueisha Celebrates 1000th Chapter of ONE PIECE with “World Top 100” Campaign

TOKYO, Japan – January 4th, 2021 – Today, major publisher Shueisha Inc. launched a worldwide poll called “World Top 100” for fans to decide once and for all who is the best “ONE PIECE” character as part of their “ONE PIECE 1000 LOGS” project.

Commemorating 1000 chapters and 23 years, one of the most popular serialized titles Eiichiro Oda’s “ONE PIECE,” from the Weekly Shonen Jump Magazine, is leaving it in the hands of their fans to decide who is the most popular character out of a thousand.

The massive online poll launches on January 3, 2021 at 7 AM (PST) and 10AM (EST) and will be live until February 28th, 2021 at 6:59AM (PST) and 9:59AM (EST) when the final results will be tallied. Fans can vote through the homepage ​https://onepiecewt100.com/en/ and by mail-in postcards.

This announcement will be followed by a New York Times full page color ad to promote the campaign. During the voting period, fans will receive prizes for participation.

New content will be coming thanks to the “ONE PIECE 1000 LOGS” project. On the homepage for the poll, new trailers and a live action teaser will be premiering. From other campaigns, Shueisha will be rolling out exclusive cover art featuring beloved character Luffy alongside other “ONE PIECE” characters drawn by fellow Jump authors, collaboration projects with other magazines under the Shueisha imprint, the release of the largest amount of free manga volumes “ONE PIECE” has ever seen, and a letter from author Eiichiro Oda looking back on the history of the property.

Publisher Shueisha endeavors to unify the world as ONE in fandom by launching the new slogan “We Are One.” Precipitated by the 1000th chapter of this seminal series, the poll allows fans to participate and interact. They plan to demonstrate the diverse nature of the fanbase by showcasing each region’s Top 100 characters.

Fans are allotted one vote per day for the length of the poll. As a prize, each voter will receive a random AR Model of a character they can use to take photos with using their camera apps on their devices.
